Pumping Up The Jam 1990 Style

Written by Shane Smith, Editor, Stonewall Gazette

I remember buying so many compilation CD's back in the 1990's like this one from Rhino Records. Billboard Top Hits: 1990 featured 10 mega hits. All of the songs reached the top 5 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

Long-haired cuties, Matthew and Gunnar Nelson (twin sons of 60's pop icon, Ricky Nelson) burst onto the music scene with (Can't Live Without Your) Love And Affection  and Wilson Phillips scored a huge number one hit with "Hold On" .  My two favorites from this collection are Stevie B's  ballad "Because I Love You" and the club track sensation "Pump Up The Jam" by Technotronic

Watch the music videos below and share in the comments with some of your favorites from 1990.

Here is the track list for this CD:
  1. "Because I Love You (The Postman Song)" – Stevie B
