My Top 5 Hits RETRO – 2006

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 November 05TH 2006:

  1. “Gravity” – The Fold
  2. “Activate” – Stellar Kart
  3. “Up Above” – High Flight Society
  4. “In Such A State” – Edison Glass
  5. “Waste Of Time” – FM Static

11 weeks into my salvation – before I even found and joined a church family – I was rockin’ to God and His music via my local independent Christian rock radio station – “The Call”.

Hearing these songs 15 years later gives me goosebumps. It brings me back to that euphoric time when I was a baby again – at the age of 39.

My # 1 smash 15 years ago was from The Fold – a band that is still around today after nearly 20 years. In 2006 they released their debut album – “This Too Shall Pass”. Its opening track was “Gravity”. It was their 1ST of 5 hits on my chart over the next 3 years.

I like the chorus of “Gravity”:

♫ Just like gravity – what draws You to me
Someone I didn’t know I needed
It’s like gravity – it’s stronger than me
I need You here ♫

Next Friday on RETRO I’ll go back 25 years ago to November 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 !
