What was that title again?
The Road to No. 1
As noted before, Little Texas scored their only three No. 1 hits consecutively. We’ve mercifully reached the end of that streak.
The No. 1
There are some songs from the nineties that I liked at the time, but haven’t aged so well. Most of them were either novelty records or maudlin ballads, the two types of records that usually age the worst.
But some records I knew were God awful at the time.
“My Love” was mind-numbingly terrible when it was released, and it’s just as terrible in retrospect.
I’m sorry, but there are no redeeming qualities here. It’s poorly sung and blandly produced, but Trisha Yearwood and Garth Fundis couldn’t have saved this one.
“My love. Are you ready for my love, my love? My love, my love is ready for you.”
This went number one on April Fool’s Day, but the joke was on us.
The Road From No. 1
Little Texas scored a handful of additional hits from their next two projects, most notably “Kick a Little,” “Amy’s Back in Austin,” and “Life Goes On.” Brady Seals exited the lineup in 1995 and pursued solo projects, but they didn’t go anywhere, and neither did the band’s efforts following their mid-decade Greatest Hits project.
“My Love” gets an F.
