1990s Blogging Music Radio

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 December 15TH 1991:

  1. “Black Or White” – Michael Jackson
  2. “All 4 Love” – Color Me Badd
  3. “Cream” – Prince And The New Power Generation
  4. “Set Adrift On Memory Bliss” – P.M. Dawn
  5. “The One And Only” – Chesney Hawkes

Brothers Prince Be and DJ Minutemix were P.M. Dawn out of Jersey City New Jersey, and they took the world by storm with their unique fusion of catchy pop-oriented hip hop and R & B. They scored with a trio of huge hits during the early-1990s – “Set Adrift On Memory Bliss”, “I’d Die Without You”, and “Looking Through Patient Eyes”. As opposed to much of the Eurodance music on the radio at the time this music allowed you to chill. It was relaxing. It was soothing to the soul. It was good music for its era.

Here’s the official music video for the blissful “Set Adrift On Memory Bliss”:

Next Friday on RETRO I’ll go back 35 years ago to December 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 !
