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 October 28TH 1990:

  1. “Can’t Stop Falling Into Love” – Cheap Trick
  2. “Love Is The Ritual” – Styx
  3. “Can’t Get Enuff” – Winger
  4. “Falling To Pieces” – Faith No More
  5. “Black Cat” – Janet Jackson

Why replicate a good thing when I can present the real thing ? 30 years ago this weekend my weekly hit music chart was a Top 40, and I analyzed my chart in a column known as “Chartbeat C.M.D.”

In my original handwriting – here’s that column:

Big changes are coming to RETRO starting next month and into December. I’ll be removing 20 years ago from the monthly rotation, and I’ll be adding 25 years ago and 35 years ago. My hit music chart began 35 years ago next month in England, and 25 years ago this month it was resurrected after a 3-year hiatus. The beginnings of both of these distinct eras are intriguing, and I’m looking forward to looking back at these music memories of my life. 

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 !
