1990s Music Radio

My Top 5 Hits RETRO – 1990

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 4TH Friday of the month, so I go back 30 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday May 20TH 1990:

  1. “Room At The Top” – Adam Ant
  2. “The Price Of Love” – Bad English
  3. “Peace In Our Time” – Eddie Money
  4. “This Old Heart Of Mine” – Rod Stewart & Ronald Isley
  5. “Club At The End Of The Street” – Elton John

30 years ago – back when I had more spare time on my hands – I compiled and published a Top 40 hit music chart every week. As a special treat this week I present to you a list of the artists that appeared from chart positions 6 to 40 in alphabetical order:

Aaron Neville
Alannah Myles
The B-52s
Belinda Carlisle
Bell Biv Devoe
Billy Joel
Deborah Harry
Don Henley
Gloria Estefan And The Miami Sound Machine
Jane Child
Linda Ronstadt
Luther Vandross
Marcia Griffiths
M.C. Hammer
Michael Bolton
Motley Crue
Phil Collins
Richard Marx
Sinead O’Connor
Sydney Youngblood
Taylor Dayne
Wilson Phillips

WOW !  What a line-up. It’s a who’s who list of the biggest pop stars in the U.S.A. as the Summer of 1990 was just getting started. It’s what I was listening to in my dorm room, at the workplace, and on the road in my 1989 red Geo Spectrum.

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 !
