Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Ronnie Milsap - 40 #1 Hits (2000)



"MY WIFE BOUGHT WHAT?!?" FORTNIGHT* (JULY 1-14, 2016)


Borrowed from a previous post:

My wife is a big Ronnie Milsap fan, which makes me one by default.  I'm not one for country music, but I'm familiar with all these tunes because of their crossover success on other charts.  Which means I don't mind listening along with the missus.  I worked on the backstage crew at a Milsap concert around 1990 and found him to be great guy (also taller than I had imagined). His backing band and roadies loved him, which tells you everything you need to know about the man.  He also put on a helluva show.

Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: #178

Note: I was lazy, didn't do my due diligence and just copied the above chart info from wikipedia so please let me know if I need to change anything.

I'm partial to the early '80s adult contemporary stuff, but the wife can (and should) listen to the whole thing non-stop. I feel cheated that I only got 35 #1 hits instead of the advertised 40.

Personal Memory Associated with this CD: To be honest, this CD set doesn't quite fit the current theme as I purchased this compilation as a gift for my wife.



*I recently unearthed a CD carry case that my wife used to carry in one or more of our three former minivans.  This month, in the spirit of this blog's mission, I'll be listening to that case's contents.
