    Enjoyed your top 20 one hit wonders of the 1990s. I learned name of several songs that I’ve heard on our sattelite feed at work. It was interesting-during the show I heard 3 in a row that I had never heard of an later, 3 in row that were very familiar. I hope the criterion for songs selected was their popularity, not quality. That’s because, to me, one of them, “Closing Time” is as bad a tune as I have ever heard!! One closing note, you said “Tub Thumpin’” was from 1997. It actually hit #1 during the winter of 1999, Do you have a show that features 1980′s videos??
