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 … Ari Gold.

36-year-old singer-songwriter Ari got his showbiz start as a child vocalist, performing over 400 jingles, and voices for Cabbage Patch Kids, and truly outrageously, he was the singing voice of BaNee on … Jem!

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 #46 is … “Remember Me This Way” by Jordan Hill. When this Casper song came out in the summer of 95, I immediately thought it was going to be huge. It was a big movie ballad, the film was a hit, and the song was written and produced by glossy ballad maestro David Foster. But it was not to be, as “Remember Me This Way” peaked at a paltry #80 in August 1995.
