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 January 25TH 1998:

  1. “Walkin’ On The Sun” – Smash Mouth
  2. “Tubthumping” – Chumbawamba
  3. “Mo Money Mo Problems” – Notorious B.I.G. Ft. Puff Daddy & Mase
  4. “Legend Of A Cowgirl” – Imani Coppola
  5. “As Long As You Love Me” – Backstreet Boys

So a quarter-of-a-century ago was 1998 ? !

I feel so old. I was 30 going on 31 in 1998, and I was a little bit wild at the time. I liked my Smash Mouth. They were like a party-pop-rock band who were really hot for about 4 years from late-1997 to late-2001.

Their debut smash was so hot, as they were “Walkin’ On The Sun”. It spent 28 weeks on my chart. They followed it up with “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby” (10 weeks), “All Star” (47 weeks), “Then The Morning Comes” (21 weeks), “I’m A Believer” (32 weeks), and “Pacific Coast Party” (8 weeks). That’s some pretty good party music right there that defines that era leading-in to and coming-out of #Y2K.

Next #RetroFriday I’ll go back 35 years ago to the end of January 1988. It’s when both Michael Jackson and Prince were in my Top 5.

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 !

The Major’s Top 5 Hits RETRO – 1998

Every Friday night I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference from either 10, 20, or 30 years ago (rotating each week). Here it is – for the week ending Sunday November 08TH 1998:

  1. “Jump Jive An’ Wail” – Brian Setzer Orchestra
  2. “One Week” – Barenaked Ladies
  3. “Tearin’ Up My Heart” – ‘N Sync
  4. “Real World” – Matchbox 20
  5. “Thank U” – Alanis Morissette

As I look back at these classic hit music charts from 10, 20, and 30 years ago – I remember my life, and what I was doing as those songs played on the radio every 3 hours or less.

I often wonder what my life will be like, and what I will be doing, and where I will be doing it – 10, 20, and 30 years from now.

I was living and working in Homestead Florida 10, 20, and 30 years ago. In fact I’m still living in the same home as I was 10 and 20 years ago. My workplace is the same today as it was 10, 20, and 30 years ago. Only the music on the radio has changed over the years.

I probably won’t be here in Homestead Florida in 10 years. I’ll probably be retired, and living in a smaller and quieter town further north in South Central Florida.

I wonder if I’ll be blogging on here in 10 years ?  I was 10 years ago.

“The Major’s Top 5 Hits RETRO” returns in 3 weeks on Friday November 30TH 2018.

Third Eye Blind scored 6 Top 20 hits on my chart during the late-1990s and into the 21ST Century:  “Semi-Charmed Life” (# 1 in 1997), “How’s It Going To Be” (# 1 in 1998), “Jumper” (# 3 in 1998), “Never Let You Go” (# 1 in 2000), “Deep Inside Of You” (# 20 in 2000), and “10 Days Late” (# 7 in 2000).

“One Week” spent one week at # 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on this weekend exactly 20 years ago.
