Top Ten Tuesday: Adele "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)"

Adele hits the Top Ten for the 6th time. All of the songs from proper studio albums that have gotten into the Top Ten have gone to #1, so I guess we'll see :)

I like this upbeat, almost gospel-flavored song!

Throwback Thursday: 1991 (3 Weeks at #1)

This song was from before I was aware of Mariah Carey. I think that I heard it many times on the radio before I knew that it was Mariah Carey, though I should have. Shame on me.

Mariah Carey - Emotions (10/12-10/26)

Top Ten Tuesday (UK Edition): Kungs vs Cookin on 3 Burners - This Girl

What a lovely and simple and sweet video and song! I like it a lot. It's hard for me to believe this is the #2 song in the UK right now. I guess it's just because it's unfamiliar.

Throwback Thursday: 1992 (3 Weeks at #1)

Two VERY different songs that somehow are perfect representatives of the kind of super catchy, memorable one-hit-wonders that the early 90's was really good for!

Mr. Big - To Be With You (2/29-3/14)



Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy (2/8-2/22)
