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 October 07TH 2007:
- “Love In Your Arms” – Eleventyseven
- “F-Stop” – Sullivan
- “Staring At The Light” – The Wedding
- “I Need You” – Relient K
- “Let’s Go Back” – Everyday Sunday
Good music from my 2ND year of my salvation in Christ – with a heavy dose of Christian pop-punk.
“F-Stop” was such an amazing song. It spent 11 consecutive weeks at # 2. Sullivan were the lone “one-hit-wonder” of the Top 5 bunch. The band released their 10-track album “Cover Your Eyes” on my 40TH birthday in 2007, and the lead-off track (and only known radio single) was “F-Stop”.
The Wedding were HUGE in 2007 with 3 hit singles in a row on my favorite radio station back then – #TheCall. “Morning Air” peaked at # 2 for a single week. “Say Your Prayers” peaked at # 2 for 2 weeks. And then came along “Staring At The Light”. It climbed to # 1 the week after it was at # 3, and it stayed there for 5 weeks in a row. It was my # 6 hit of 2007.
There is no music video for “Staring At The Light”, but Curb Records provided this to YouTube several years ago, and I still love to hear this song 15 years later, so I’ve included it here for my own listening enjoyment. Maybe you’ll like it too ?
Next #RetroFriday I’ll go back 20 years ago to October 2002. It’s when a Spanish DJ who we all knew on a first-name basis as “Sammy” scored a worldwide #EDM smash that crossed-over onto the mainstream pop charts, and it was a cover version of a Bryan Adams smash from 1985.
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 !
