When a hit turns 25 years old it is technically old enough to be a classic hit. When they are just barely old enough, we call them baby classics.
The week's BABY CLASSIC is:
Maxi Priest, "Close to You" (1990)
"Close to You" reached #1 on Billboard's Top 100 on October 6th 1990. It was bumped one week later by George Michael. This song was on the charts for a whopping 15 weeks.
Other things from 1990:
Cost of Living: Loaf of bread : 70 cents
Music Happenings: Oct. 3rd Florida record store owner, Charles Freeman, is found guilty of obscenity, for selling 2 Live Crew rap records
TV Debuts: Oct. 4th U.S. premiere of Fox TV's "Beverly Hills, 90210" starring Luke Perry, Jason Priestley and Shannen Doherty. Coincidentally, Luke Perry's birthday is also this week!
