Do you remember your favorite song from 25 years ago? Where were you 25 years ago?  Yes 1991 was 25 years ago.  I got a request from a young lady who was celebrating her 25th wedding anniversary. She wanted to hear anything by Hi-Five.

I ask myself after she hung-up why does she want to hear Hi-Five on her 25th anniversary.  Well it’s because they had 2 number ones 25 years ago.  Yes I said 25 years ago.

Time really does fly! Take a look at the billboard charts number 1’s in 1991. Yes all these songs are 25 years old. I couldn’t believe it either. Take a look at the number 1’s from 25 years ago.
