Wilson Phillips – “Hold On” – (1990)

Wilson Phillips is group made up of children of 1960s musicians: Carnie and Wendy Wilson (daughters of Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys) and Chynna Phillips (daughter of John & Michelle Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas). This was their debut album and it was a big deal in 1990. But it would’ve fared just as well a few years before this as well – and that’s what we’ll be dealing with for the next few weeks: songs from the 1990s that would’ve been just as big in the 1980s. This was a #1 hit in the U.S. and was recently featured in the movie Bridesmaids – which caused it to re-enter the U.K. charts. It’s famous for the quickly-delivered lyric: “Some day somebody’s gonna make you turn around and say goodbye.”
