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 4TH Friday of the month, so I go back 30 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday January 28TH 1990:
- “Dangerous” – Roxette
- “Leave A Light On” – Belinda Carlisle
- “It’s Not Enough” – Starship
- “Janie’s Got A Gun” – Aerosmith
- “Roam” – The B-52s
1990 was a great year for Top 40 music on the radio. It was the start of the greatest decade of pop music of my lifetime; although, I’ve always considered 1989 to be the theoretical start of 1990s music.
My iTunes library contains almost 300 hits from the 1990s (and another 30+ from 1989) – more than any other decade by far. I listen to ’90s music at my desk at work all day every day (amongst hits from other decades).
I can’t believe that 1990 was 30 years ago ! It was quite the momentous year for me. The Summer Of 1990 will be remembered as the Summer Of Rock & Roll on Panama City Beach Florida. It was a wonderful summer (at the time) – that will never happen again. It was fun for a season. 20½ years later – a few days before Christmas of 2010 – I went back to the scene of the crime – more mature, more educated, and saved by the Grace of God – to literally repent for what happened back then in 1990.
So every 4TH Friday of the month this year I’ll take you back to my 1990 – and the soundtrack of my life back then as a 22 and 23-year-old active duty military guy.
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 !
