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).

Last Friday I observed Good Friday, and so #RetroFriday was preempted. It’s the 2ND Friday of the month, and this is the edition I would’ve presented last week. I go back 15 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday April 13TH 2008:

  1. “Face Down” – Family Force 5
  2. “Friend Like That” – Hawk Nelson
  3. “The Flame In All Of Us” – Thousand Foot Krutch
  4. “Apathy For Apologies” – Everyday Sunday
  5. “Southern Weather” – The Almost

Family Force 5 (#FF5) made quite the presence on my pop chart back during the infancy of my salvation in Christ. They were on with 6 hits from 2006 to 2009 – including “Love Addict” – which was one of the first songs I ever heard in August 2006 – right after God rescued and saved me and showed me His love. “Love Addict” was their first # 1 smash. It was also my 2ND # 1 smash during my Salvation Era. “Face Down” was their 2ND # 1 smash, and it was at the top of my chart for 3 weeks in a row starting exactly 15 years ago this week.

There was no music video made for “Face Down”, but #FF5 uploaded this to YouTube about 10 years ago for your listening pleasure. Take a listen to what my chart sounded like on this day 15 years ago:

Next #RetroFriday I’ll go back 25 years ago to April 1998. It’s when – it’s when – um – I – I can’t remember. I may suffer from long-term memory loss.

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 !
