  7. The only one I’d ditch is Vengaboys. I never really liked their pre-school style techno, but you can occasionally find me getting on down to Shalala Lala. What a choon!
  8. That whole Top 10 is epic.

  9. A fantastic year in pop. I love 1-6 especially. What a week!

    I was obsessed with Shania.

  10. I Breathe Again by Adam Rickitt is still such an epic bop.

    1999 was great the only thing that could’ve improved it was a big poptastic Spice Girls single.
  11. Yes indeed, 1997-2003 was a great run in pop music for me

    I'd long since lost that connection with the (pop) charts.
  15. I was 14 in 1999 and the same happened to me gradually and by about 2005 I was totally out of touch.
    Mr Brightside and Eric Generic like this.
  16. I got really back into it around 2002, until about 2008. Pop became something I could relate to again.
  17. The Adam Rickitt album was surprisingly solid. Much better than I thought it would be.

    Imagine Tina Cousins recording some of those songs, though.
    AfternoonsInUtopia, MB and Suburbia like this.
  18. I'm shook that the album is on streaming.

    Some of the songs wouldn't sound out of place on Light Years.
  19. He had an album? Blimey.
  20. Now 43 is probably my Desert Island Disc. What a summer, what a year
