Hello again retro music fans. 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, 20, 25, 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 02ND 2007:
- “Love In Your Arms” – Eleventyseven
- “F-Stop” – Sullivan
- “Finding Out” – Stellar Kart
- “You’re On Fire” – MxPx
- “Let’s Go Back” – Everyday Sunday
As I entered the 2ND year of my salvation in Christ I was in a positive-pop-punk type of mood, as I listened and sang along to some righteously rowdy tunes on local Christian pop radio.
Eleventyseven enjoyed great success on my pop chart at the time – which means I really liked what I was hearing from them on the radio. They scored with 5 huge hits in a row with “Myspace” (# 2 for 2 weeks), “Nostalgiatopia” (# 1 for 7 weeks), “Love In Your Arms” (# 1 for 6 weeks), “How It Feels (To Be With You)” (# 1 for 4 weeks), and “Trying” (# 1 for 10 weeks). So that’s 27 weeks at # 1 in a little more than 3 years from January 2007 to January 2010.
After 20 years the band is mostly still together, and they are still releasing new music and performing LIVE in concert. I’m not familiar with their music since 2010, but their anthems from 15 years ago still live on.
Next #RetroFriday I’ll go back 20 years ago to September 2002. It’s when trance, techno, and house music dominated my chart, and a Dutch DJ by the name of Carlo Resoort was atop my chart with a long-running track that spent 70 weeks in a row on my Top 40.
It’s halftime my friends. I’ll be back on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday with 3 more blog posts for this weekend. Enjoy your Saturday. Thanks for going retro with me !
