"Can't Stop Loving You"
    Arena rock superstars Van Halen with lead singer Sammy Hagar scored the biggest hit of their career and one of the biggest hits of the decade on UU-BRU Radio Playlist with "Can't Stop Loving You".  The single spent 17 weeks in the top ten with five weeks at number one.  South Carolina's Hootie & The Blowfish placed five singles in the top ten during 1995.  Their first single, "Hold My Hand", spent four weeks at number one in late December 1994/early January 1995, ranking at #44 for 1994 and #55 for 1995.  Combining both year's points, it would have placed at number five for 1995.  Several artists broke through during the year including Dave Matthews Band, Live, Alanis Morissette and Shania Twain.  Canadian country singer Shania Twain teamed up with produced-husband Robert Mutt Lange, the man behind some of the biggest hits by AC/DC, Bryan Adams and Def Leppard.  Tejano superstar Selena was bound for crossover success was she was lost to her legion of fans.  Three top five singles followed her untimely death, making her runner-up to Shania Twain for UU-BRU Radio Playlist top female act of the year.  No male artist dominated the year, but Michael Jackson proved to be the biggest, just edging former UU-BRU Radio Playlist top male artist winners Bruce Springsteen, Tim McGraw and John Michael Montgomery.
