# 1 One Year Ago This Week:
“Gracefully Broken” – Matt Redman Ft. Tasha Cobbs Leonard

This week marks the 2ND anniversary of the start of the 3RD era of my hit music chart. The original era lasted not quite 7 years (1985-1992), and the 2ND era was alive for a little over 14 years (1995-2010). After an over 7-year hiatus I quietly resurrected my chart with a single song – TobyMac‘s “Love Broke Thru”. It was the # 1 and only song that week exactly 2 years ago.

That (Sunday) night 2 years ago I saw TobyMac (and friends) LIVE in concert in Tallahassee Florida. This Friday night I’ll be seeing TobyMac (and friends) LIVE in concert again – here in South Florida. Toby’s friends this time around will be Jeremy Camp, Jordan Feliz, Ryan Stevenson, We Are Messengers, and Aaron Cole. I am so looking forward to this show. I’ve got a great seat on the floor just 8 rows from the stage. Needless to say I probably won’t be seated for very long. I’ll be singing and dancing in Row H.

The day after that TobyMac concert two years ago is the day (Presidents’ Day) that I discovered that K-LOVE is a national over-the-air radio network with a station back home in South Florida. The next day (Tuesday) I headed home, and about 100 miles from home I tuned-in to K-LOVE for the first time ever. I’ve been listening ever since then. It’s great that their signal comes from a 100,000 watt / 1,000-foot transmitter that’s just 5 miles from my home. (I can actually see it from my home.)

That one-song chart exactly two years ago became a Top 3 the following week, a Top 5 the week after that, and a Top 10 in its 4TH week. This 3RD era of my hit music chart is known by me as the “K-LOVE Era”.

This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again next weekend – 4 blog posts on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.

Your likes, follows, and comments are always appreciated. Thank You for being part of my online ministry to share God’s Good News and win souls for Christ through His music. Enjoy this week my friends. I’m on Twitter @ChrisMDay, and I’m also the man behind the tweets for my church @LivingWatersHFL. May God bless you – always and forever. Amen.

My Top 5 Hits RETRO – 2009

Every Friday night I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from either 10, 20, or 30 years ago (rotating each week). Here it is – for the week ending Sunday February 15TH 2009:

  1. “Stand Up” – Remedy Drive
  2. “Sing” – The Classic Crime
  3. “Homemade Valentine” – Children 18:3
  4. “Dead Man” – We As Human
  5. “Lose Control” – House Of Heroes

That’s some good rockin’ music right there that I remember from exactly a decade ago – back when I was in the middle of my 3RD year on this fantastic journey. On this particular Sunday morning I attended our 9 AM service, and I served Communion to my brothers and sisters. During our 10:30 AM service I served out in the main lobby.

Here’s what I wrote on my blog on this day 10 years ago:

– The highest level of living is generous living.
– Jesus says, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
– I choose to be generous with my time.
– The Good News says, ‘Nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.’
– I choose to be generous with my talent.
– God made us what we are.
– He made us to do good on this Earth.
– I choose to be generous with my testimony.
– I choose to share my fantastic journey with the entire world.
– I choose to tell the story of how I was rescued and saved from the darkness.
– I choose to love and adore God for giving me a second chance at Life.
– I choose to never allow the euphoria of His light to ever dim.

That was the Truth back then, and it is the Truth today !

It’s halftime. I’ll be back on Sunday and Monday with two more blog posts for this weekend. Enjoy your Saturday. Share the Good News with all who will listen.

The Major’s Top 10 Hits – Week 104

Every Monday night I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday February 10TH 2019:

  1. “Maybe It’s OK” – We Are Messengers [# 2 last week / 11TH week on chart]
  2. “Best News Ever” – MercyMe [3 / 8TH]
  3. “Nobody Loves Me Like You” – Chris Tomlin [1 / 15TH]
  4. “Red Letters” – Crowder [5 / 8TH]
  5. “Forever On Your Side” – NeedToBreathe [6 / 7TH]
  6. “Even Then” – Micah Tyler [4 / 26TH]
  7. “Known” – Tauren Wells [7 / 27TH]
  8. “God Only Knows” – for King & Country [9 / 2ND]
  9. “Never Alone” – Tori Kelly & Kirk Franklin [10 / 2ND]
  10. “Look Up Child” – Lauren Daigle [- / 1ST]

# 1 One Year Ago This Week:
“Gracefully Broken” – Matt Redman Ft. Tasha Cobbs Leonard

We Are Messengers finally reach # 1 on my chart with their 3RD hit single in a row. “Magnify” peaked at # 2 in 2017, “Point To You” hit # 3 in 2018, and now “Maybe It’s OK” becomes the 30TH # 1 smash of this 3RD era of my chart. That makes it my favorite song on the radio right now. I’ll be singing along loud and proud when they perform it LIVE right in front of me at the upcoming TobyMac concert here in South Florida.

Micah Tyler does something amazing this week. His former # 1 smash “Even Then” spends its 26TH week on my chart. A year ago this week his former # 1 smash “Different” fell off of my chart after 26 weeks. Micah is getting ready to go on a 9-week nationwide tour with MercyMe, and I’ve got a floor seat for their Tampa Florida show in May.

Tauren Wells sets an all-new longevity record during this 3RD era of my chart, as “Known” spends its 27TH week on my chart. I’m still singing along to this song at home and in my car.

I’m fully known, and loved by You.
You won’t let go – no matter what I do.
And it’s not one or the other.
It’s hard truth and ridiculous grace.
To be known – fully known, and loved by You.
I’m fully known, and loved by You

This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again next weekend – 4 blog posts on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.

The Major’s Top 5 Hits RETRO – 1989

Every Friday night I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from either 10, 20, or 30 years ago (rotating each week). Here it is – for the week ending Sunday February 12TH 1989:

  1. “Straight Up” – Paula Abdul
  2. “The Lover In Me” – Sheena Easton
  3. “She Wants To Dance With Me” – Rick Astley
  4. “When I’m With You” – Sheriff
  5. “Born To Be My Baby” – Bon Jovi

30 years ago this weekend Paula Abdul completed her ascent from relative obscurity to becoming a household name worldwide as her “Straight Up” skyrocketed to # 1 nationwide (and simultaneously on my chart). It fueled one of the most successful debut albums (“Forever Your Girl”) in U.S. pop history. Its award-winning music video was an instant classic for MTV near the end of the peak of the network’s music video era, and it was created and released just a few weeks before its single hit the top of the charts.

Meanwhile on the local party scene a young 21½-year-old wild and crazy version of me occasionally partied the club scene at Confetti on East Commercial Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale – where Uptown’s “(I Know) I’m Losing You” – got everyone out on the dance floor as whistles blew, sirens blared, and confetti blasted in the air all around us. Good Times. (A Regions Bank now sits on the former site of that legendary nightclub.)

It’s halftime my friends. I’ll be back on Sunday afternoon with “Sunday Scripture” – because Thank God – I’m not the man I used to be back then in 1989. Enjoy your Saturday. Make it memorable.

# 1 One Year Ago This Week:
“Gracefully Broken” – Matt Redman Ft. Tasha Cobbs Leonard

No new entries last week for the unpublished chart during my hiatus, and two new entries this week. “God Only Knows” is sort of a surprise follow-up radio single to “joy” for Joel & Luke. I was actually expecting it to be the title track of their new album “Burn The Ships” (which I really like). Maybe it’ll be the next radio single later on in 2019.

One of the many highlights of my trip in the Caribbean last week was walking in to Rusty Fish at the West End of Roatán Honduras, and hearing Christian hit music blaring loud and proud all throughout the store – specifically Jordan Feliz. It put a big smile on my face. Check out their web site to see their mission to save the world in multiple ways.

The Major’s Top 5 Hits RETRO – 1999

Every Friday night I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from either 10, 20, or 30 years ago (rotating each week). Here it is – for the week ending Sunday January 24TH 1999:

  1. “One Week” – Barenaked Ladies
  2. “Baby One More Time” – Britney Spears
  3. “Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here” – Deborah Cox
  4. “Believe” – Cher
  5. “Thank U” – Alanis Morissette

One of those hits I heard today at work, and I hear it almost every day at work because it’s on my iPod Shuffles that play all day every day at my desk at work. It’s the # 3 smash – the Hex Hector Dance Radio Mix of Deborah Cox’s “Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here”. It still sounds as fresh today as it did exactly 20 years ago. Spoiler Alert: It would go on to spend 5 consecutive weeks at # 1 in February and March of 1999, so you’ll see that the next time I feature 1999 on a Friday night.

This blog is now going on hiatus for the next 8 days. The same goes for my Twitter and Flickr feeds. It’s #WinterBreak2019. I’ll be back on social media on Super Bowl Sunday February 03RD 2019. I’ll post a new “Sunday Scripture” on that day, and then the next day it’s my brand new Top 10 Christian hit music chart.

Thank You all for checking me out online. Enjoy your next 8 days. Be blessed.
