Throwback Thursday: 1990 (2 Weeks at #1)

Feast on this 5-song smorgasbord of early 90's hits! There's some GREAT stuff here this week!

Wilson Phillips - Release Me (9/15-9/22)

Man, Wilson Phillips did some catchy songs, didn't they? I always think that they've only done "Hold On", but this song is pretty killer, as well!

Glenn Medeiros featuring Bobby Brown - She Ain't Worth It (7/21-7/28)

VERY noteworthy song here, even though you, like me, may not have ever heard of it. This article talks about it and here's a hint: it has to do with that word in between "Medeiros" and "Bobby"

Roxette - It Must Have Been Love (6/16-6/23)

There's a joke in Pitch Perfect involving this song and in order to get it, it's important to know that this song was a hit in 1990, not the 80's, a fact I didn't realize for quite some time. It's an element of the Riff-Off, if you want to go check it out.

Alannah Myles - Black Velvet (3/24-3/31)

Is this Alternative? It has sort of a Four Non-Blondes vibe, so I think it maybe is. Very cool!

Phil Collins - Another Day in Paradise (1/6-1/13)

This song gets an honorary spot on this feature at this point because it TECHNICALLY had 4 weeks at #1, but two of them were in the 80's and this is a feature about the 90's. And so I'm making a judgement call. Rather than trying to remember to include it in the "4 weeks at #1" post or not including it at all, it will go here.
