- Never Gonna Give You Up – Rick Astley
- Need You Tonight – INXS
- Father Figure – George Michael
- Foolish Beat – Debbie Gibson
- Hungry Eyes – Eric Carmen
These were my Top 5 hits exactly 30 years ago this weekend – Sunday February 28TH 1988.
On “American Top 40” Casey Kasem revealed the new # 1 smash from coast to coast as “Father Figure” from George Michael.
Casey Kasem was my idol growing up. I began listening to his countdown during the late-1970s on WPGC-FM (Washington D.C.) and WCAO-AM (Baltimore MD). I lived between the two cities. I’d write down the songs as he counted them down. 40 years ago this Sunday Casey revealed “Stayin’ Alive” from The Bee Gees as the # 1 smash in the U.S.A.
I didn’t get to be America’s favorite radio deejay as I envisioned all of those years ago, but I get to do this on social media.
I’ve been producing my own personal weekly hit music chart off and on for the past 30+ years. Next Friday it’s back to the future – to 10 years ago in 2008.
