Every Friday 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 1ST Friday of the month, so I go back 10 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday December 06TH 2009:
- “Trying” – Eleventyseven
- “Rolling With The Punches” – Ruth
- “City On Our Knees” – TobyMac
- “Breathing For Me” – Everyday Sunday
- “Broken Man” – Horizons Fall
Check that out – an early TobyMac song on my chart – and a really good one too. That was actually Toby’s 3RD hit on my chart – following the # 1 smash “Made To Love” and “Boomin'”. I had my research department (me) go even further back in time to November of 1996. That’s when TobyMac really charted for the first time – along with Michael Tait and Kevin Max. Together they were dc Talk, and they scored with a Christian # 1 smash that crossed-over onto Secular Top 40 and Adult Contemporary radio stations – “(Just) Between You And Me”. It spent a single week on my chart at # 28.
It’s halftime my friends. I’ll be back on Sunday and Monday with two more blog posts for this weekend. Enjoy your Saturday. Thanks for going RETRO with me !
