It’s Tune Tuesday! Twenty years ago, today, the #1 Billboard Hot 100 song was The Boy Is Mine.
Honestly, until today, I had never heard this song. I spent a large portion of the 90s listening to Alt-Rock stations.
And, on that note, since there is more than one chart, perhaps I should expand & extend my music posts! Hee-hee!
The #1 Billboard Alternative song was Inside Out.
The #1 Billboard Top 40 song was I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing.
The #1 Billboard Country song was I’m Alright. This is another song that, until today, I’d never heard. ~Victoria
It’s Tune Tuesday! Twenty-five years ago, today, the number one song was I Can’t Help Falling In Love, a Reggae version of Elvis’ hit from the 1961 soundtrack and movie of the same name, Blue Hawaii. Both of these versions topped the U.S. & U.K. charts.
I am also posting the clip from the movie. Elvis’ original didn’t make it to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 (which is usually where I get my number one songs from) in the U.S., getting stuck at number two behind Peppermint Twist but, it did make it to number one in the U.K. & Australia in early 1962. It was a number one hit on the Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart in January 1962:
Plus, I have to confess that, while I like Reggae, I am an Elvis fan and I prefer the original (no offense, guys!).
It’s Tune Tuesday! And, yeah…I just made that up, too…just like Flick Friday. But, hey, I’m having fun. I hope you have fun, too. ~Victoria
