[my pathetic attempt at tasting and understanding wine]
1990 is a year when the reign of schlock-pop terror (Wilson Phillips, Michael Bolton) was briefly interrupted by fun, light hip-hop newcomers such as Bell Biv DeVoe (#4), Black Box (#81) and Kyper (#100).
Janet Jackson edged out perennial favorites Taylor Dayne and Phil Collins with 5 top-100 hits.
Best song of 1990 imho: Nothing Compares 2 U (#3)
Hold On (#1)
Unskinny Bop (#32)
We Didn't Start the Fire (#35)
The Humpty Dance (#62)
Milli Vanilli Blame It on the Rain
Mariah Carey’s debut, Vision of Love
