Every Friday 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, 25, 30, or 35 years ago this weekend (rotating each week).
It’s the 2ND Friday of the month, so I go back 25 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday November 12TH 1995:
- “Til I Hear It From You” – Gin Blossoms
- “Get Together” – Big Mountain
- “Come And Get Your Love” – Real McCoy
- “Back For Good” – Take That
- “Forever Tonight” – Peter Cetera & Crystal Bernard
A new season of my weekly RETRO feature continues, and this week I debut a brand new look back at 25 years ago. After a 3-year hiatus my weekly hit music chart came back to life in a big way at the end of October of 1995. It would be the start of a run that would last over 14 years. It would also mark the start of the online era of my chart where I got to share it with the whole world via my web site.
Gin Blossoms were one of my favorite pop-rock bands of the mid-1990s. “Hey Jealousy” and “Found Out About You” were fun songs to jam to in my cozy efficiency apartment in Melbourne Florida in 1993 into 1994. They were both big hits on 107.1-A1A – the Top 40 radio station back then (and now) along Florida’s Space Coast.
Back in Homestead (where I live today) “Til I Hear It From You” was the perfect pop song for late-1995 that was my first # 1 smash of the new post-grunge pop era.
And what can I say about Real McCoy. They were a hit-making machine back in the mid-1990s with no less than 7 big pop hits in a row on Top 40 radio in South Florida. They defined the Eurodance phenomenon during the 1990s !
Next Friday on RETRO I’ll go back 30 years ago to November 1990.
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 !
