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 September 17TH 2000:

  1. “Higher” – Creed
  2. “It’s My Life” – Bon Jovi
  3. “Music” – Madonna
  4. “Most Girls” – Pink
  5. “Come On Over (All I Want Is You)” – Christina Aguilera

11 weeks at # 1 in May, June, and July wasn’t enough for Creed’s “Higher” back in 2000. It returned to # 1 on this week exactly 20 years ago to add another 2 weeks at the top. It was (by far) my # 1 smash of the entire year that was Y2K.

Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life” has held up well over these past 2 decades. It’s still in heavy rotation on my iPod Shuffles that play at my desk at work. It’s known as their last big hit (after 14 years from 1986 to 2000). It’s also their most-played music video on YouTube. I’ve seen Bon Jovi LIVE in concert twice – in 2006 and 2013.

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 !
