Flashback Friday: 'Smooth' by Santana and Rob Thomas Turns 20

The thing about it being 2020 is that I keep thinking about the year 2000 — how RELIEVED we were that when the clocks changed on Dec. 31, 1999 that the world did not end. Because if you're of a certain age, a whole LOT of folks thought that was going down.

Remember Y2K? Remember that mess? If you've put that out of your head, I bet you remember grooving to "Smooth" by Santana and Matchbox 20 vocalist Rob Thomas. It topped the Billboard charts this week back in 2020 and listen, "Smooth" was such a jam.

But do you recall how MUCH of a jam it was? The song spent 12 weeks in the No. 1 spot on Billboard and went on to win a whopping three Grammys, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

Twenty years old but still sounding timeless.
