My Top 10 Hits – Week 319

Every Monday I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from the previous week. It’s the continuation of a weekly hobby that goes back nearly 45 years. Here’s this week’s chart – for the week ending Sunday March 26TH 2023 – the 319TH week of this current era that began on Presidents’ Day Weekend of 2017:

TW LW WKS SONG TITLE ARTIST / SITE
1 1 10 The Lord’s Prayer (It’s Yours)
[5TH week @ # 1]
Matt Maher
2 2 17 I See Grace Micah Tyler
3 3 6 Running Home Cochren & Co.
4 4 15 My Story Your Glory Matthew West
5 5 8 I Believe It (The Life Of Jesus) Jon Reddick
6 7 4 This Is Our God Phil Wickham
7 8 7 I’m So Blessed Cain
8 6 15 First Things First Consumed By Fire
9 9 5 That’s Enough Brandon Heath
10 10 2 Believe Blessing Offor

# 1 This Week In:
2022 – “Brighter Days” – Blessing Offor
2021 – “Say I Won’t” – MercyMe
2020 – “Almost Home” – MercyMe
2019 – “Confidence” – Sanctus Real
2018 – “No One Like Our God” – Lincoln Brewster
2017 – “I Have This Hope” – Tenth Avenue North

MICAH TYLER – Next week he will surpass TobyMac to become 1 of my Top 5 artists since this chart was resurrected 319 weeks ago. He’s at # 2 on my chart, and he’s at # 2 nationally with “I See Grace”. Nationally it should replace Brandon Lake’s “Gratitude” at # 1. I’m not sure if it will reach # 1 on my chart. I’ve got my eyes on Michael Cochren and his band.

DIVINE SOUND – I found a cool radio station on Amazon Music that I can play on my Echo Dots. It’s called Divine Sound, and its playlist of 50 current Christian pop songs is updated every Friday.

This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again with the new weekend – and 4 new entries – known as #TravelThursday, #RetroFriday#SundayScripture, and #Top10Monday.

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 our 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 – 1988

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 4TH Friday of the month, so I go back 35 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday March 27TH 1988:

  1. “Out Of The Blue” – Debbie Gibson
  2. “You Don’t Know” – Scarlett And Black
  3. “Just Like Paradise” – David Lee Roth
  4. “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car” – Billy Ocean
  5. “I Get Weak” – Belinda Carlisle

Surging 30 notches from # 32 to # 2 on this week 35 years ago was an obscure duo known as Scarlett And Black. One was a keyboard player for The Big Supreme – who I actually saw LIVE in concert on October 28TH 1986 in Oxford England. (They opened for Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark.) The other was a back-up singer for Doctor And The Medics – who scored a couple of # 1 smash hits on my chart in 1986. Together – they produced a single hit – “You Don’t Know”, and it hit the radio airwaves sounding just like this:

That was actually a big Spring Break hit in 1988, so if you were singing and dancing along to that track at a sunny and warm beach back then – then you must be my age.

Next #RetroFriday I’ll go back 45 years ago to the end of March 1978. It’s when all of America was dancin’ the night away.

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 !

My Top 10 Hits – Week 318

Every Monday I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from the previous week. It’s the continuation of a weekly hobby that goes back nearly 45 years. Here’s this week’s chart – for the week ending Sunday March 19TH 2023 – the 318TH week of this current era that began on Presidents’ Day Weekend of 2017:

1 1 9 The Lord’s Prayer (It’s Yours)
[4TH week @ # 1]

2 2 16 I See Grace Micah Tyler
3 4 5 Running Home Cochren & Co.
4 3 14 My Story Your Glory Matthew West
5 7 7 I Believe It (The Life Of Jesus) Jon Reddick

9 6 4 That’s Enough Brandon Heath
10 1 Believe Blessing Offor

# 1 This Week In:
2022 – “Brighter Days” – Blessing Offor
2021 – “Say I Won’t” – MercyMe
2020 – “Almost Home” – MercyMe
2019 – “Confidence” – Sanctus Real
2018 – “No One Like Our God” – Lincoln Brewster
2017 – “I Have This Hope” – Tenth Avenue North

BLESSING OFFOR – He’s back with his 3RD hit overall (and 2ND solo hit). “Believe” is his follow-up to his # 1 debut smash “Brighter Days”. It was actually released late last year. It took a while to finally reach my chart, as the song and its lyrics are catching on with me.

THE JOY FMK-LOVE is not available over the radio airwaves up in my new area of Florida (Highlands County). Driving towards the area – I lose the last of 3 signals broadcasting K-LOVE in South and Southwest Florida just south of Lake Placid – about 25 miles from my new neighborhood. That’s when I switch over to THE JOY FM to continue listening (and singing along) to my favorite hits on the radio. I also listen to it on my radio in my new home. Of course – I can still listen to K-LOVE online via their app on my iPhone and iPad, and as soon as I get an Amazon Echo Dot (already ordered) for my new home – I can simply ask Alexa to “play K-LOVE”.

This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again with the new weekend – and 4 new entries – known as #TravelThursday, #RetroFriday#SundayScripture, and #Top10Monday.
