My Top 5 Hits RETRO – 1991

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 3RD Friday of the month, so I go back 30 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday June 16TH 1991:

  1. “Unbelievable” – EMF
  2. “I Touch Myself” – The Divinyls
  3. “Here We Go (Let’s Rock & Roll)” – C + C Music Factory Presents Freedom Williams & Zelma Davis
  4. “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” – C + C Music Factory Ft. Freedom Williams
  5. “Joyride” – Roxette

EMF topped my chart 30 years ago this weekend with their unique HI-NRG pop-dance track “Unbelievable”. It was a worldwide smash, and a # 1 smash here in the U.S. It was near the start of a long 10-week summertime run at # 1 on my chart.

EMF were formed in 1989 in Cinderford – about 40 miles west of where I lived for 2 years (1985-1987) near Fairford. Both towns are in Gloucestershire in the South West of England. I haven’t been back to England since I left 33½ years ago. I hope to make it back sometime in the future.

Next Friday on RETRO I’ll go back 35 years ago to June 1986 – when I lived in Gloucestershire. I attended my very first concert ever back then in London England. I’ll share that experience with you next week.

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 !
