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 August 18TH 1991:
- “Just Like You” – Robbie Nevil
- “Every Heartbeat” – Amy Grant
- “The Dream Is Still Alive” – Wilson Phillips
- “Fading Like A Flower (Every Time You Leave)” – Roxette
- “Unbelievable” – EMF
If you read my blog post yesterday then you’ll know that exactly 30 years ago this weekend I was at sea in the Caribbean for the first time ever with my family. This is the chart that I produced just before my family arrived here in Miami.
Amy Grant is currently at # 1 on my chart as a featured artist with her husband Vince Gill on Ryan Stevenson’s tribute song to his mom – “When We Fall Apart”. Back in the early-1990s Amy was one of the hottest stars on the pop chart with 5 big hits in a row from her quintuple-platinum album “Heart In Motion” – including her 2ND hit “Every Heartbeat” – which would eventually ascend to # 1 on my chart.
Here’s the official music video for “Every Heartbeat”:
Next Friday on RETRO I’ll go back 35 years ago to August 1986.
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 !
