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 (rotating each week). Here it is – for the week ending Sunday September 20TH 1998:

  1. “Take Me Away” – Mix Factory
  2. “Tearin’ Up My Heart” – ‘N Sync
  3. “Studio 54 Megamix” – Studio 54 All-Stars
  4. “I Want You Back” – ‘N Sync
  5. “The Way” – Fastball

3 of the 5 hits above were 3 of the Top 4 hottest hits of the entire year that was 1998. The other 2 of the 5 hits above … were deep house tracks.

Mix Factory’s “Take Me Away” is still a favorite of mine 20 years later. It’s received nearly 700 plays on my various iPod Shuffles over the past 11 years.

20 years ago this weekend deadly Category-4 (almost Category-5) Hurricane Georges was rapidly barreling through the Caribbean towards South Florida, and we prepared for the worst. It made one of its many landfalls directly over Key West as a 105 MPH Category-2. Damage was extensive from Key West To Key Largo and northward into Miami-Dade County and the mainland.


It’s halftime. I’ll be back on Sunday with Scripture, and then on Monday it’s my brand new Top 10 music chart. Enjoy your Saturday. Be safe. Have fun. Love all. Live life.
