Flashback Countdown #7 (1995)


Pearl Jam (1995)

I'm at Podcon as this is being published and I thought it would be fun to take a look back 22 years to this week in 1995. It was definitely a great week on the chart. Future Grammy Nominees and Hot 100 Top Ten songs abound!

Big thanks to my friend Amity for getting me a copy of the Folk Implosion song!

Enjoy!

New Countdown: Full Circle

It's all coming back around this episode. ....And other circular puns. I thought it would be easier to come up with fun circle puns, but I guess I'm a little below the curve (is that a circle pun?).

Anyways, enjoy this mega-long episode!

Top Ten Tuesday: G-Eazy featuring A$AP Rocky and Cardi B

I listened to a program on the SiriusXM station 60's on 6 where, in honor of Thanksgiving, they counted down all of the "turkeys" of the 60's, where "Turkey" was defined as a song that peaked at #11. So of course I went through all of the songs from this year that had peaked at #11. I wrote this song down, but I erased it as the song went from 11->8 this week. I really love charts.

This is a fairly straightforward rap song. I like that Cardi B's star is still rising!

New Countdown: Gettin' Weird


30 Seconds to Mars


I think that this episode might start off with the weirdest song I've ever played. I hope you enjoy the craziness as much as I do. The show benefits from it, I think. A good shot in the arm that makes the more straightforward songs all the sweeter!
