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 1ST Friday of the month, so I go back 15 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday September 03RD 2006:
- “SexyBack” – Justin Timberlake Ft. Timbaland
- “Ain’t No Other Man” – Christina Aguilera
- “Crazy” – Gnarls Barkley
- “Desensitized” – Jonah33
- “Far Away” – Nickelback
Introducing my first Top 5 Christian hit post-salvation – the hard-rockin’ “Desensitized” by Jonah33. It’s one of the first distinct songs that I remember hearing on the radio for the first time after Christ rescued and saved me during the 3RD week of August of 2006.
The song inspired me to look-up the word “Desensitized”, and do research on it, and discern what it means in relation to me believing and following God. It led me to God’s Word. It led me to Scripture online.
Jonah33 was formed in 2001 in Fayetteville Arkansas – home of the University Of Arkansas Razorbacks. They were active for 7 years, and this was their biggest hit at Christian Top 40 radio.
When did I start to lose this fight ?
Somehow I lost track of who you are
I’m so ashamed that I’ve grown so numb
Somehow I became desensitized
I don’t want to be desensitized ♫
Next Friday on RETRO I’ll go back 25 years ago to September 1996.
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 !
