First up is Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s classic One Sweet Day which is currently in danger of being dethroned as Billboard Hot 100’s longest running #1 song. With 14 weeks at the top of Hot 100 Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk featuring Bruno Mars is closing in on One Sweet Day’s massive 16 weeks at the top…that’s FOUR months!!!
With its universal lyrics about loosing someone and finding solace in knowing that you will be reunited in Heaven and its soaring vocals, the 1995 hit took both Mariah and Boyz II Men’s popularity to another level and was eventually crowned as 1990’s Song of the Decade. This one’s definitely for the nostalgia dedicated to Mariah and her loyal Lambs.
I know you’re shining down on me from heaven / Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way / And I know eventually we’ll be together / One sweet day
