Music on Mondays (3-13-17)—Five minor hits from 1987-1990

The Music Chronicles of Russel Ray

When I bought my 1989 Ford Mustang GT, it came with a CD player. Ever since that day, I have listened to very little radio, which also means that I have missed out on a lot of individual songs from American Top 40 and, later, the Billboard Hot 100.

For the most part it was never an issue because I hung out at the record stores and kept track of what my favorite bands were doing.

However, even my favorite bands occasionally released a single that was not on the latest album and did not make it to the next album. I completely missed out on those bands that I was not following but which released a single that I otherwise would have bought.

Those misses are why I am going through the songs which made the Billboard Hot 100 from 1955 (the year I was born and the generally accepted date of the beginning of Rock ‘n’ Roll) to the present.

Here are five songs that I discovered by doing that and which now are in my music collection:

“World Shut Your Mouth” by Julian Cope, 1987, #84

“Run To Paradise” by The Choirboys, 1989, #80

“Let The Day Begin” by The Call, 1989, #51

“Pride & Passion” by John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band, 1989, #66

“Time For Letting Go” by Jude Cole, 1990, #32

Thanks for stopping by! See you next time!
