My Top 5 Hits RETRO – 2010

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 January 03RD 2010:

  1. “Trying” – Eleventyseven
  2. “Rolling With The Punches” – Ruth
  3. “Where To Start” – Philmont
  4. “Forget And Not Slow Down” – Relient K
  5. “Forest” – Number One Gun

This is the week that I reduced my chart down to a Top 10 (from a Top 15). The end was near. I would go on to compile and publish 4 more weekly hit music charts after this one (through the end of January 2010). Once February 2010 rolled in this hobby had ended after 14 years in a row (and over 30 years overall). The “Salvation Era” of my weekly hit music chart lasted not quite 3½ years.

On the 1ST Friday of the month next month I’ll reveal the never-before-told story of how and why this chart came tumbling down, and why I quit listening to Christian music on the radio. The story has a happy ending (obviously) – because here I am in 2020 listening to and promoting Christian music again.

It’s halftime my friends. I’ll be back on Sunday and Monday with 2 more blog posts for this weekend. Enjoy your Saturday. Thanks for going RETRO with me !
