Hot Topic: 17 music videos CBC TV 'killed'

Everyone loves going down memory lane and our feature on 17 music videos which were ‘pon de replay’ on the local television channel helped Barbadians do just that.

Do you remember those music videos which seemed to play morning, noon and night?

We certainly did and so did many of Loop's readers.

Unbreak My Heart by Toni Braxton, Earth Song by Michael Jackson, A Whole New World by Peabo Bryson & Regina Belle and I Believe I Can Fly by R. Kelly were just a few of the songs that you couldn’t get enough of.

Barbadians took to social media to share memories of watching the 17 music videos on Loop's list, while sharing others that they remembered well.

Kara Haynes Alicia Selman - "’killed’ is an understatement....i know all of those songs word for word thanks to CBC...ahh the good old days.”

Pat Ford – “Air Supply, all of their hits. I can still sing them to this day.”

Shonari Hall – “Turn down the lights by nathalee Burke lol them destroy that one “

Emma Fitzgerald – “Anything by Peabo Bryson period.”

Kimona Peachez Norville – “Sang them loud with my mom everytime they came on... Although we would say 'oh lawd, again' we would end up singing.”

Can you share in their sentiments?
