My Top 10 Hits – Week 188

Every Monday I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay. It’s the continuation of a weekly hobby that goes back 40+ years. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday September 20TH 2020:

TW LW WKS SONG TITLE ARTIST / SITE
1 1 6 God So Loved We The Kingdom
2 2 5 The Blessing Kari Jobe, Cody Carnes, Elevation Worship
3 4 4 Rise Up (Lazarus) Cain
4 5 3 No Hold On Me Matty Mullins
5 3 3 This Is What We Live For Big Daddy Weave
6 6 19 No Impossible With You I AM THEY
7 7 8 Miracles Colton Dixon
8 10 3 Into The Sea (It’s Gonna Be OK) Tasha Layton
9 9 5 Peace Be Still Hope Darst
10 8 5 Who Am I NeedToBreathe

# 1 This Week In:
2019 – “Nobody (But Jesus)” – Casting Crowns Ft. Matthew West
2018 – “Only Jesus” – Casting Crowns
2017 – “Broken Things” – Matthew West

No new entries this week, as We The Kingdom remain perched atop my chart with their awesome song proclaiming that “God So Loved”.

Here’s the bridge of the song. It actually echoes my Pastor’s powerful sermon yesterday morning on “The Power Of Praise & Worship”:

♫ Praise God !  Praise God !
From whom all blessings flow
Praise Him !  Praise Him !
For the wonders of His love
Praise God !  Praise God !
From whom all blessings flow
Praise Him !  Praise Him !
For the wonders of His love
His amazing love ♫

Next weekend’s chart will be unpublished. I’ll present my next Top 10 chart in 2 weeks on Monday October 05TH 2020.

This concludes another season here at #CountUp after 11½ weekends and 47 blog posts in a row every Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I hope that you enjoyed reading along and tracking with me over these past 2½ months. I’ve tried to be enlightening, entertaining, and informing – all at the same time. Now it’s time to get refreshed and rejuvenated.

I’ll be back for an all-new season of blogging in a couple of weeks – starting with “Sunday Scripture” on Sunday October 04TH 2020. I hope that you’ll join me then. In the meantime feel free to look back at older blog posts that you may have missed, or go outside and get some fresh air !

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. I’m also on Twitter and Flickr.

Be blessed my friends !  May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

My Top 5 Hits RETRO – 2000

Every 2ND, 3RD, and 4TH Friday of the month 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, or 30 years ago this weekend (rotating each week).

It’s the 3RD Friday of the month, so I go back 20 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday September 17TH 2000:

  1. “Higher” – Creed
  2. “It’s My Life” – Bon Jovi
  3. “Music” – Madonna
  4. “Most Girls” – Pink
  5. “Come On Over (All I Want Is You)” – Christina Aguilera

11 weeks at # 1 in May, June, and July wasn’t enough for Creed’s “Higher” back in 2000. It returned to # 1 on this week exactly 20 years ago to add another 2 weeks at the top. It was (by far) my # 1 smash of the entire year that was Y2K.

Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life” has held up well over these past 2 decades. It’s still in heavy rotation on my iPod Shuffles that play at my desk at work. It’s known as their last big hit (after 14 years from 1986 to 2000). It’s also their most-played music video on YouTube. I’ve seen Bon Jovi LIVE in concert twice – in 2006 and 2013.

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 !
