I had so much fun viewing every Billboard “Hot 100 #1 Singles of the 90s” that were number one on (or near) my birthday (***). I figured that I would take another walk down memory lane and check out the number 1 singles during my birthday for every year from 2000 to 2009.
Never was an Enrique fan. At all.
This definitely was the song for the summer of 2001. It brings back some fun memories because I participated in a summer research program at NYU. This summer experience pretty much made want to attend grad school and live in NYC.
I was never a Nelly fan, but I gotta give him props on this song. Actually, I lie, I did like that song he did with Christina Aguilera.
I don’t remember this song.
I will say that I still listen to this album often. I have to say that I think this was her last great/good/decent album. “Bobby Womack on radio saying to me ‘if you think you’re lonely now.’ What a minute, this too deep. I gotta change the station.”
Oh look, my girl. I’ve been following Shakira since the 90s . . . back when she rocked her natural black hair color. Although I will say that I kind of like her earlier stuff a little more than the newer stuff. Oh well, I guess they call that the evolution of an artist.
Not a huge fan of Ri-Ri, but I did enjoy this song. Did you know “Umbrella” was originally intended for Britney Spears? I wonder how that would have worked.
Bah, next. I’m surprised this was #1 for only one week. I feel like “Viva la Vida” was ALWAYS on the radio. Wait, were folks still listening to the radio in ’08?
Eh. Not one of my favorites from the B.E.P.
