Roxette ruled with its classic "It Must Have Been Love." "I'm really proud of that era," Gessle says.
Welcome to the Billboard Chart Beat Podcast, where each week co-hosts Gary Trust and Trevor Anderson, from the Billboard charts department, discuss why what's on the charts … is on the charts, while also looking at current chart action in a historical context for even greater insights.
This week, Gary and Trevor travel back to the Billboard Hot 100 this week 28 years ago, dated June 16, 1990, to count down the chart's top 20, a playlist that includes hits by Sinead O'Connor, Richard Marx, En Vogue, Phil Collins, M.C. Hammer, Janet Jackson and Madonna.
Also in the mix (at No. 1?): Roxette's smash from the Julia Roberts/Richard Gere blockbuster Pretty Woman, "It Must Have Been Love," and Per Gessle from the duo (Marie Fredriksson has since retired from recording and performing with him) is our special guest.
