Every Friday night I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from either 10, 15, 20, or 30 years ago this weekend (rotating each week).
It’s the 3RD Friday of the month, so I go back 20 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday July 18TH 1999:
- “Sexual (Li Da Di)” – Amber
- “Smile” – Vitamin C Ft. Lady Saw
- “All Star” – Smash Mouth
- “Someday” – Sugar Ray
- “It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay” – Whitney Houston
Lady Saw was once known as the Queen of dancehall music. In addition to her rap vocals on the Vitamin C song above you may remember her 2002 Grammy award-winning collaboration with Gwen Stefani and No Doubt in “Underneath It All”.
Her songs were quite risqué (especially her solo material), but now she serves a different master – her Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. She was rescued and saved by God at the end of 2015. She’s a born again Christian, and now she’s known as Minister Marion Hall. She preaches God’s Word and performs Gospel music now. Score another beautiful win for God’s Kingdom and another miserable loss for the devil.
It’s halftime my friends. I’ll be back on Sunday afternoon and Monday night with two more blog posts for this weekend. Enjoy your Saturday. Thanks for going RETRO with me !
