My Top 5 Hits RETRO – 2000

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 August 20TH 2000:

  1. “Lucky” – Britney Spears
  2. “I Think I’m In Love With You” – Jessica Simpson
  3. “It’s My Life” – Bon Jovi
  4. “Higher” – Creed
  5. “Bent” – Matchbox Twenty

Good chart 20 years ago this week. Good music. “It’s My Life”, “Higher”, and “Bent” still play on my iPod Shuffles today. They still sound great. They were 3 of my Top 5 hits for the entire year of 2000. You know I’ve always considered 2000 to be the 12TH year of “’90s music”. The greatest decade of music for me began in 1989 and it continued on through 2000.

I just watched the official music video for Jessica Simpson’s “I Think I’m In Love With You”. Now I remember why I liked it so much back then. It’s a great summertime song. I think it’s my favorite Jessica Simpson jam. It borrows heavily from John Cougar Mellencamp’s “Jack & Diane”. In fact if you were in the dance clubs back during the Summer of 2000 (like myself) then you probably heard a wonderful mash-up of “Jack & Diane” and “I Think I’m In Love With You”. I need to add it to my iTunes Wish List. Yep. I’m still buying music on iTunes. Don’t judge me. #OldSchool

Over at the multiplex I saw “Nutty Professor II: The Klumps”. It was a summertime smash, but apparently I didn’t like it all that much. I rated it a “C”.

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 !
