I was born on a blustery day in the middle of a blizzard (which my parents remind me of often). On that Thursday, the No. 1 song in the U.S. was Player's "Baby Come Back," which overtook The Bee Gees' "How Deep Is Your Love" on the Billboard Hot 100. Those were the days that music charts were revered and climbing the charts meant the singer or band was on its way to the big time.
No. 1's and best-sellers are a bit different these days. We don't wait days or weeks for newspapers and magazines to tell us what's hot. We can simply log on to the internet and read reviews or check flash sales to see what's on its way up. And, guess what? Amazon is no different! I've combed through the Amazon bins to find items that you truly need to get your hands on before they're gone and FOMO consumes your life.
