Music Monday: Back-to-School Edition

This week, my blog is all about going back to school.  This is my last week of summer vacation, and I thought I'd get you all myself in the right frame of mind.

I promise you that I am not going to talk cheesy school songs like "The Wheels on the Bus" or anything.  Actually, I thought I'd take you on a trip down memory lane to 1988.

I began my school career in the fall of 1988 when I started Kindergarten.  Since then, I have only had ONE year in which I did not have a "back-to-school season."  (That was in 2005.  It was my first year out of college, and I didn't have a teaching job yet.  I started subbing in October of the year.)

In the spirit of my 26th anniversary of starting school, I thought I'd share the Top 5 hits from the year I started Kindergarten.

#5 "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns 'N' Roses

#4 "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley

#3 "Got My Mind Set on You" by George Harrison

(And yes, that's former Beatle, George Harrison.)

#2 "Need You Tonight" by INXS

#1 "Faith" by George Michael

And yes, I know every last one of these songs.  

What year did you start school?  What's the #1 hit from that year??  Please share it with me in the comments! :)

I was born in 1988 so I enjoyed seeing the songs from the year I was born (I know #4 & 5 pretty well)! From a quick google search it looks like "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston was #1 in 1993 when I started school.
