The Major’s Top 5 Hits RETRO – 1998

Every Friday night I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference from either 10, 20, or 30 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday May 17TH 1998:

  1. Iris – Goo Goo Dolls
  2. How’s It Going To Be ? – Third Eye Blind
  3. Heroes – The Wallflowers
  4. I Want You Back – ‘N Sync
  5. Sex And Candy – Marcy Playground

Interesting chart from 20 years ago this weekend. Light rock (less talk) had displaced the late-’90s Eurodance party – at least temporarily.

31 years ago tomorrow – May 19TH 1987 (a Tuesday) – me and a buddy from work (Kelly Brown) ventured from RAF Fairford eastward to London England to see Duran Duran LIVE in concert at historic Wembley Arena. It was part of their worldwide “Strange Behaviour” tour of 1987 that promoted the songs off their “Notorious” album. It was a typical British teen pop concert, and I was right there “teening-out” at the young energetic age of 19 (2½ weeks shy of my 20TH birthday).
