What's a "Baby Classic" you ask? It's a mega-hit that has just recently been birthed in to "classic hits" status (a.k.a. 25+ years old!)
The week's BABY CLASSIC is:
Mr. Big's "To Be With You" (1992)
This soft rock ballad was #1 on Billboard's 1992 Pop Singles Chart for 3 weeks. (Feb 29, Mar 7, Mar 14). The single was from the band's second album, Lean into It, that dropped in December of 1991.
Here's a picture of Meredith Michaels (ME) in 1993: Holy bangs, Batman.
