“Fading Like A Flower” named one of Labor Day’s biggest hits


A Roxette track made an appearance on a special edition of SiriusXM’s Back In The Day ’90s on 9 countdown. The 1991 smash “Fading Like A Flower (Every Time You Leave)” was part of the list of the biggest ’90s hits from Labor Day weekend.

Former MTV VJ Downtown Julie Brown served as guest host for the countdown and called the song “a super track from their album Joyride.” “Fading Like A Flower (Every Time You Leave)” spent 18 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped out at #2 during the week of August 31, 1991. It was kept out of the top spot by another parenthetical song, Bryan Adams’ “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You” from the movie “Robin Hood.”

The complete countdown of the top three hits from each years of the 1990s is playing on the ’90s on 9 channel throughout the week ahead and is also available on demand on SiriusXM’s web site. If you’re not a subscriber, you can sign up for a free trial period.
