As a radio guy, I can't think of a better way to do it than with a countdown, and, since music has been as important to my life as just about anything else, here we go on a unique 500-day musical journey unveiling my favorite music.
As we get closer, I will begin a simultaneous "Rob Witham CCM Top 200", which counts down my favorite music in the Contemporary Christian music genre I worked in for many, many years.
For now, let's begin!
#500: "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)"--Information Society (1988)
The 1980's will dominate this countdown, as it was the decade that began with me in seventh grade, and ended with me at 22, married, and on the radio five days a week. Junior high, high school, college, career, you get it. But don't worry, the 1970's make many appearances, too.
This is a high-energy, feel-good song from a part of the 1980's that I thought was weakest musically (1987-1989). Fun to turn up in the car and sing along. Which I've done. Many times. Thank God there's never been tape running. :)
