Not On The List...
(The Groove-Yard of forgotten hits)

What can we say? They all made the it to Billboard's Top Ten in 1995, but nobody (or very few people) ask to hear them any more. You can change that! Vote, suggest or complain about your favorite song from 1995 not being included on the PCM List!

Billboard Peak # 1. Take A Bow - Madonna
Billboard Peak # 2. Candy Rain - Soul For Real
Billboard Peak # 2. Don't Take It Personal (just one of dem days) - Monica
Billboard Peak # 2. One More Chance/Stay With Me- The Notorious B.I.G.
Billboard Peak # 2. Freak Like Me - Adina Howard
Billboard Peak # 2. Water Runs Dry - Boyz II Men
Billboard Peak # 3. I'll Be ThereFor You/You're All I Need T Get By - Method Man

Billboard Peak # 9. Dear Mama/Old School - 2 Pac
Billboard Peak # 9. Brokenhearted - Brandy
Billboard Peak # 10. Smeone To Love - Jon B
Billboard Peak # 10. Keep Their Heads Ringin' -Dr. Dre

Don't feel bad for Monica or Brandy - they teamed up in 1998 with The Boy Is Mine, and did just fine for themselves. As for Madonna's Take A Bow, maybe it was too long, at just over five minutes, and simply not romantic enough to qualify as a slow song.
