The Music Party #5’s


The #5’s include 3 songs that were my #1 of the year, “Life Is A Highway” in ‘92, “Pink Motel” by the Glorious Sons in 2021, and “Sing” by My Chemical Romance in 2012. One of the most powerful remakes of all-time is also included, “The Sound Of Silence” by Disturbed. Nickelback and Christina Aguilera show up twice and Jewel sort of does back-to-back. “Foolish Games” was #5 in 1997 and in 1998 it was Fastball’s “The Way”. The beginning of that song is the sound of someone flipping through the radio dial and Jewel’s voice is heard for about a second. Another interesting Jewel anecdote is that she showed up at #4 (“You Were Meant For Me”), #5 with the aforementioned “Foolish Games” (both in the same year), and in 2002 #6 with “Standing Still”.
