My Top 5 Hits RETRO – 2008

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 February 03RD 2008:

  1. “Friend Like That” – Hawk Nelson
  2. “Out Of Control” – Capital Lights
  3. “Shake It Off” – Dizmas
  4. “Ra-Random” – Transistor Radio
  5. “Never Going Back To OK” – The Afters

That was a fun chart 15 years ago. Energetic Christian Pop-Rock all the way. It was a good time of faith, family, fellowship, and fun a year-and-a-half into my fantastic journey with God.

Hawk Nelson ascended to the top of my chart for what would be the first of 10 weeks in a row at # 1. It held on the entire year (2008) to be my # 1 smash overall.

Next #RetroFriday I’ll go back 20 years ago to February 2003. It’s when DJ Ray Roc joined forces with Tina Arena to score my biggest smash of 2003.

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 !
