Welcome back to school! I hope everyone’s winter break went well. For the first installment of Last in Line this term, we listened to a selection from September 1, 2001’s Billboard Hot 100 chart. We had songs from *NSYNC, Linkin Park, Lionel Richie, Lee Ann Womack, and more. My personal stand out was “Mad Season” by Matchbox Twenty. Check […]
Taylor Swift has been keeping the pop culture world on its toes with two surprise releases, Folklore and Evermore, in 2020 and the re-releases of two earlier albums, Fearless and Red, in 2021. Swift has explored several music genres and many themes in her 18-year career. It is no shock to anyone that the infamous workaholic and singer-songwriter […]
I covered for Guitar Shop this week! We listened to Hounds of Love by Kate Bush, most commonly known today for its opening song “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” that was made famous by Stranger Things 4. It’s a great album by a fantastically talented artist.
This week we threw it back to the very first episode of the show. I pulled the playlist from February 16, 1980, because who doesn’t want to listen to “Last Train to London” by Electric Light Orchestra during dead week? Hope everyone is making it through finals, and tune in spring term for more of Last […]
I covered for Hyperactive Youth during their 6pm Friday slot. Since it’s the season, I played the album, Evermore, by Taylor Swift.

This week’s playlist came from the Billboard Hot 100 chart from the week of July 25, 1987.

Personal favorites of mine included “Montego Bay” by Amazulu and […]
This week’s playlist came from the July 20, 1985 Billboard Hot 100, aka the week after Live Aid. We kicked the show off with “We are the World” by U.S.A for Africa. We heard some other iconic songs, such as “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” by Simple Minds and “Crazy for You” by Madonna. Check […]
The Billboard Hot 100 Chart used for this week’s episode was that of July 2, 1983. The ’80s tend to make my favorite playlists, and this one doesn’t fall short. Filled with familiar, upbeat synth and somber, easy listening tracks, this was a good week. We had some very famous names as well, most notably […]
This week’s playlist came from the week of August 24, 1968. It was an easy-listening week with catchy songs at every turn. Recognizable names included Dionne Warwick and B.B. King. I found a few favorites this week, including The Weight by Jackie DeShannon and The Funky Judge Pt. 1 by Joe & Mack and Bull […]
