Every 2ND, 3RD, and 4TH Friday of the month I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from either 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 April 16TH 2000:
- “(I’ll) Never Let You Go – Third Eye Blind
- “All The Small Things” – Blink 182
- “Thong Song” – Sisqo
- “Say My Name” – Destiny’s Child
- “Bye, Bye, Bye” – ‘N Sync
1 of those 5 hits is still a favorite 20 years later, and that’s Blink 182’s biggest hit ever “All The Small Things”. While it’s not currently in active rotation on my iPod Shuffles it has spent considerable time on them. According to my iTunes I purchased and added this track on New Year’s Eve 2009, and since then it’s garnered 527 plays – about 1 play per week. It was my # 6 hit overall of 2000 (out of 199 chart songs).
20 years ago this weekend I saw “Return To Me” at the Box Office, and I rated it 3 out of 4 stars – which is the equivalent of a “C” letter grade. Apparently I didn’t like it all that much. I don’t remember anything about that movie. Wikipedia tells me that David Duchovny and Minnie Driver starred in it.
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 !
