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 03RD 1999:

  1. “One Week” – Barenaked Ladies
  2. “Thank U” – Alanis Morissette
  3. “Baby One More Time” – Britney Spears
  4. “This Kiss” – Faith Hill
  5. “From This Moment On” – Shania Twain

4 out of 5 of those hits were featured 3 weeks ago when I last went #Retro to 20 years ago. Faith Hill has the lone new entry with her long-running country-pop crossover global smash “This Kiss”. It was in its 24TH week on my chart 20 years ago this weekend. It spent 5 weeks in my Top 5 and 20 weeks in my Top 10. It still sounds great today !

 

It’s halftime. I’ll be back on Sunday and Monday with my remaining two blog posts for this weekend. Enjoy your Saturday. Thank You for reading my blog.

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.

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 September 20TH 1998:

  1. “Take Me Away” – Mix Factory
  2. “Tearin’ Up My Heart” – ‘N Sync
  3. “Studio 54 Megamix” – Studio 54 All-Stars
  4. “I Want You Back” – ‘N Sync
  5. “The Way” – Fastball

3 of the 5 hits above were 3 of the Top 4 hottest hits of the entire year that was 1998. The other 2 of the 5 hits above … were deep house tracks.

Mix Factory’s “Take Me Away” is still a favorite of mine 20 years later. It’s received nearly 700 plays on my various iPod Shuffles over the past 11 years.

20 years ago this weekend deadly Category-4 (almost Category-5) Hurricane Georges was rapidly barreling through the Caribbean towards South Florida, and we prepared for the worst. It made one of its many landfalls directly over Key West as a 105 MPH Category-2. Damage was extensive from Key West To Key Largo and northward into Miami-Dade County and the mainland.

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 August 30TH 1998:

  1. “The Way” – Fastball
  2. “I Want You Back” – ‘N Sync
  3. “Tearin’ Up My Heart” – ‘N Sync
  4. “When The Lights Go Out” – 5ive
  5. “Hey Now Now” – Swirl 360

Remember 5ive – England’s answer to ‘N Sync ?  5ive eventually went to 4our, and now they are still around as 3hree, but they still call themselves 5ive. They are pushing 40. Back when they were pushing 20 they scored a bunch of hits in a row in their native U.K., but they are a 1-hit wonder here stateside. That’s their hit – “When The Lights Go Out”.

20 years ago this week Barenaked Ladies had the week’s fastest climber on my chart – up 20 notches from # 39 to # 19 with “One Week”.  It actually tied Hootie And The Blowfish‘s “I Will Wait” – also up 20 notches from # 40 to # 20.

20 years ago this week Goo Goo Dolls topped the Billboard Hot 100 with “Iris”.

It’s halftime. I’ll be back on Sunday with Scripture, and then on Monday it’s my brand new Top 10 music chart. Enjoy your Saturday. Be safe. Have fun. Love all. Live life.
