Top 10 Tuesday: 1990, The Next 10

We’re back with the #11-20 songs on the Year-End Hot 100 for 1990. This was when I started becoming less enchanted with Top 40 radio, but there were still a few songs I liked.

I got 80% of the way through the writeups on the songs, and my words magically disappeared. Here are the songs and artists.

20 – Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville, "Don’t Know Much"

19 – Wilson Phillips, "Release Me"

18 – Alannah Myles, "Black Velvet"

17 – Maxi Priest, "Close To You"

16 – Heart, "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You"

15 – Janet Jackson, "Escapade"

14 – Paula Abdul, "Opposites Attract"

13 – Technotronic, "Pump Up The Jam"

12 – Michael Bolton, "How Am I Supposed To Live Without You"

11 – Bel Biv DeVoe, "Do Me!"

1991 next week. That’s Top 10 Tuesday for November 23, 2021.

  1. Bummer, I had to go to Youtube for the 3rd song, and the rest, to hear them and they are fun. I love Linda Rondstadt who is dealing with such a devastating disease. I am not a fan of Janet but I love Pump up the Jam..weird or what?


  2. I wasn’t listening to Top 40 radio in those days but those songs are all familiar– best one- Janet Jackson… worse Kenny G’s brother- Michael Bolton.


    1. Janet Jackson’s whole “Rhythm Nation 1814” alsbum was great. It’s the one album of hers that I own.

      The first time I heard Michael Bolton doing “Dock of the Bay,” I had to shut the radio off. I still cannot explain how he’s managed to sell so many records. Likewise, Kenny G: I like a lot of smooth jazz (particularly the guitarists), but I don’t get his appeal. All I can figure is that DJ’s put his records on when they need to take a dump…
