My Top 5 Hits RETRO – 1997

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 2ND Friday of the month, so I go back 25 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday January 12TH 1997:

  1. “Wannabe” – The Spice Girls
  2. “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” – Madonna
  3. “Do You Miss Me ?” – Jocelyn Enriquez
  4. “Lovefool” – The Cardigans
  5. “Don’t Speak” – No Doubt

It’s the all-female Top 5. (The Cardigans and No Doubt were led by women.)

Of those 5 hits my favorite 25 years later is “Do You Miss Me ?”. It peaked at # 3, and it spent 21 weeks on my chart at the end of 1996 and the start of 1997. It was a long-running radio smash here in Miami Florida.

Next #RetroFriday I’ll go back 30 years ago to January 1992.

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 !
