My Top 5 Hits RETRO – 1998

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 3RD Friday of the month, so I go back 25 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday February 22ND 1998:

  1. “One More Night” – Amber
  2. “Are You Jimmy Ray ?” – Jimmy Ray
  3. “Sugar Cane” – Space Monkeys
  4. “As Long As You Love Me” – Backstreet Boys
  5. “Truly Madly Deeply” – Savage Garden

Amber … What a great singer with some great dance songs back in the day. She’s from the Netherlands, but she achieved her greatest success on the pop and dance charts here stateside. “One More Night” was 1 of 7 hit singles for Amber on my chart from 1996 to 2002, and it was from her debut album “This Is Your Night”. It was the Hani Radio Edit of “One More Night” that went straight-in to my Top 30 chart at # 1 and stayed there for 5 weeks.

Next #RetroFriday I’ll go back 35 years ago to the end of February 1988. It’s when Eric Carmen was in my Top 5 with a “Dirty Dancing” track.

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 !
