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 May 14TH 2000:
- “All The Small Things” – Blink 182
- “Oops ! … I Did It Again – Britney Spears
- “Bye, Bye, Bye” – ‘N Sync
- “Higher” – Creed
- “Thong Song” – Sisqo
I wasn’t the biggest fan of Britney Spears back in the day; although, most of her songs did hit my chart, and I did sing along to most of them whenever I heard them on the radio. She charted with 12 singles from 1998 to 2004. If I had to pick a favorite – then – and now – it would be “Oops ! … I Did It Again”. It was essentially a simple singalong song. Once the Top 40 radio station played it (every 2½ hours around the clock) you couldn’t help but singalong to it – no matter what you were doing at the time.
I also keep track of every movie I see at the box office, and 20 years ago next weekend I saw “Small Town Crooks” and “Road Trip” with my little brother in Jacksonville. The former was a low-budget Woody Allen flick, and the latter was a raunchy college guys romp.
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 !
