And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT™ to … Peter Paige. I’ve got to to give a shoutout to Peter’s appearances on the Donny Osmond version of Pyramid. Peter was a good player (if a bit too exuberant with the Cher impression, but that contestant was a dolt), and as you can see below, gave the all-time greatest clue in the history of game shows. It’s about … certain footwear.

And now we have the 50 GREATEST LOST HITS OF THE 90′S! I’ve often ragged on the pop music of the 90′s for being an arid desert devoid of fun, but there were bright spots, including these 50 songs, which should have performed better on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Like The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80′s countdown, this list is very female-centric (what can I say, I like rock chicks), but hopefully, some of these pop gems may trigger a long dormant memory.

At #15 is … “My Side Of The Bed” by Susanna Hoffs. By all accounts, Susanna should have a successful solo career after the breakup of The Bangles. Like Belinda Carlisle before her, she was the lead singer and main focus of a female band, and that recognition should have propelled her to solo stardom. But it wasn’t to be, as her solo debut When You’re A Boy flopped, and the lovely “My Side Of The Bed” also stiffed, peaking at a disappointing #30 in March 1991.
