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 3RD Friday of the month, so I go back 20 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday January 16TH 2000:
- “My Love Is Your Love” – Whitney Houston
- “Blue (Da Ba Dee)” – Eiffel 65
- “Then The Morning Comes” – Smash Mouth
- “Falls Apart” – Sugar Ray
- “Steal My Sunshine” – Len
20 years ago this week we were 3 weeks into the new year, decade, century, and millennium. Whitney Houston’s “My Love Is Your Love” (Jonathan Peters’ Radio Mix) was spending its 4TH and final week at # 1. It’s still in heavy airplay via my iPod Shuffles at my desk at work, and it played today, and I sang along with Whitney. It still sounds great today (as does Len’s “Steal My Sunshine”).
The Top 5 of my pop chart 20 years ago has 4 # 1 smash hits – including a future one. Eiffel 65’s quirky worldwide pop and dance smash “Blue (Da Ba Dee)” would go on to replace Whitney at # 1 a week later in January 2000. If you forgot how that song sounded like, or if you (like me) never saw the music video for it back in the day – then check it out:
It’s halftime my friends. I’ll be back on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday with 3 more blog posts for this weekend. Enjoy your Saturday. Thanks for going RETRO with me !
