These were my Top 5 hits exactly 30 years ago this weekend – Sunday May 08TH 1988.
One Australian (who is now British too) – and 4 British acts occupied my Top 5 back then. The late-1980s were a great time for danceable pop music – much of it imported from across the Atlantic.
High atop the Billboard Hot 100 on this week 30 years ago was “Wishing Well” from Terence Trent D’arby. Right behind him was Gloria Estefan And The Miami Sound Machine with “Anything For You” (which would climb to # 1 the following week).
Next Friday night I’ll jump forward 20 years to 2008 – the 22ND month of my Christian music revolution (which began my salvation).
Have a great weekend my brothers and sisters. I’ll be back on Sunday with Scripture.
