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 1ST Friday of the month, so I go back 15 years ago. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday March 02ND 2008:
- “Friend Like That” – Hawk Nelson
- “Southern Weather” – The Almost
- “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead” – The Wedding
- “Medicine” – The Fold
- “Casting Off” – This Beautiful Republic
It’s fun to look back at those bands that I rocked-out to as a kid 15 years ago. (OK – so I was 40 – almost 41 – at the time, but I was a mere kid on this fantastic journey experiencing my own Jesus Revolution.)
The Almost was an awesome band back then. They sounded great on the radio on CALL-FM. Led by Aaron Gillepsie – they are originally from the Tampa Bay area, so they know a little something about that “Southern Weather”. It was 1 of their 5 hits on the radio back during the late-2000s. It spent 6 weeks at # 2. It’s one of those songs that I never forgot. Its melody is still on my mind after 15 years.
Next #RetroFriday I’ll go back 20 years ago to March 2003. It’s when I got my glowsticks out on the dancefloor to move to a dreamy trance.
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 !
