The Billboard Hot 100: This Week, 20 Years Ago

Music has changed a lot over the years, and in other ways, it has stayed the same. It’s fun to reflect on what type of music was popular decades ago. I was looking at Billboard’s Hot 100 list from the week of August 29, 1998 and found that these were the top 5 songs this week, 20 years ago:

5. “Torn” by Natalie Imbruglia

4.”You’re Still the One” by Shania Twain

3. “The Boy Is Mine” by Brandy & Monica 

2. “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith

1. “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls

I knew most of the words to these five songs and remember really enjoying them. 🙂 Were any of these songs some of your favorites 20 years ago?
