Today in Music news - November 24th, 1989
Ah, the year was 1989. The Berlin Wall had just fallen, the World Wide Web was a mere twinkle in Tim Berners-Lee’s eye, and the music? Well, the music was something else. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and revisit the top Billboard hits on this day, November 24th, 1989.

First up, we have the unforgettable “Blame it on the Rain” by Milli Vanilli. Now, if you’re too young to remember, Milli Vanilli was a German-French R&B duo who were as famous for their dreadlocks and dance moves as they were for their music. “Blame it on the Rain” was a catchy tune that had everyone singing along, even if they didn’t quite understand the lyrics. But hey, who needs to understand lyrics when you can just blame it on the rain, right?

Next on the list, we have “Love Shack” by The B-52’s. This song was a party anthem that had everyone shaking their “tin roofs” and heading down the “Atlanta highway” to the nearest love shack. The song was so popular that it’s still played at weddings and parties today. So, if you’re ever at a party and you hear the words “tin roof, rusted,” you know it’s time to hit the dance floor.

Then there was “We Didn’t Start the Fire” by Billy Joel. This song was a rapid-fire history lesson set to music, covering everything from Harry Truman to rock and roller cola wars. It was a hit with history buffs and music lovers alike, proving that you can indeed make learning fun. And let’s be honest, who among us hasn’t tried to sing along to this song, only to get tripped up around “Starkweather homicide”?

And who could forget “Pump Up the Jam” by Technotronic? This song was a game-changer, blending house music with hip hop in a way that hadn’t been done before. It was the kind of song that made you want to get up and dance, even if you had two left feet. And let’s not forget the music video, which featured a woman rapping in a neon-lit warehouse while a group of dancers showed off their best moves. Ah, the 80s, am I right?

Last but not least, we have “Don’t Know Much” by Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville. This song was a beautiful duet that tugged at the heartstrings and made you believe in love again. It was the kind of song that you’d slow dance to at a school dance, hoping that your crush would notice you. And if they didn’t, well, you could always blame it on the rain.

So there you have it, folks. The top Billboard hits on November 24th, 1989. It was a time of big hair, neon clothes, and music that was as diverse as it was unforgettable. And while we may not have started the fire, we sure did know how to dance to it. Here’s to the music of yesteryear, and the memories it brings back. Until next time, keep those tunes spinning.
