It is a shame that 'Stop' never quite managed #1 as it's one of the Spice Girls' best. Still, I won't begrudge the song that beat it as 'It's Like That' is brilliant.

MUCH better Madonna song in this week's throwback Thursday wub.gif In fact her best song <3 I cannot deny that William Orbit production and the haunting vocals.

'Stop' came fairly close to not even making number 2. The previous number 1, 'My Heart Will Go On' by Celine Dion fell from the top to number 3 on a sale of 102,000 copies. At this point the Celine single had sold 765,000 copies and was at the top of the year to date best selling singles list.

The number 1 album was 'Ray Of Light' by Madonna which sold 74,000 copies in its second chart week. It had debuted at the top the previous week on a sale of just under 140,000. The number 2 album was once again the OST of 'Titanic' which was able to chart on the main album chart because it was credited to composer and arranger James Horner. Its total to date sales were more than 400,000. Number one compilation album was once again 'The Full Monty OST' on sales of 32,000 with cumulative to date sales of over half a million. The number 2 Compilation album was 'Box Hits 98' named after the music TV channel. It sold 24,000 copies.

Personnel changes in pop can be unpredictable. When a member leaves, some bands struggle to recover, but if there's one band that proved a change could do them good, it was Sugababes.

Back in 2001, things weren't looking great for the group. Their debut single Overload - an infectious, sophisticated slice of pop - had been a huge success, but two subsequent singles failed to reach the same highs. To top it all off, member Siobhan Donaghy decided she'd had enough and wanted out (she's since denied rumours that she told her band mates she was going to the loo and never came back, though wouldn't that have been amazing?).

However, just a few months later, Heidi Range would join the group and help them on the path to their imperial phase.

Freak Like Me started out as a mashup by hip pop producer Richard X, who played Adina Howard's '90s R&B original over the top of Gary Numan's '80s classic Are Friends Electric? Sugababes' management loved what they heard and asked the group to record a new version. And the rest is history.

Freak Like Me gave Sugababes their first Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart, but it very nearly never happened. Sugababes scored first-week sales of 85,410 copies, but they had some serious competition – S Club Juniors finished just over 1,000 copies behind. How different things could've been…

Freak Like Me was followed by five more Number 1s – Round Round (2002), Hole In The Head (2003), Push The Button (2005), Walk This Way (2007) and About You Now (2007). To date it's notched up 317,000 across physical, downloads and streaming equivalent sales; and there's still some love out there for it – 545 of you have downloaded it in 2017 so far.



Elsewhere in the Top 40 this week in 2002, Oasis' The Hindu Times slipped from the top spot to Number 4, and Idlewild's You Held The World In Your Arms became the Sottish rockers' highest charting single, new at Number 9.

The strangest entry in the Top 40 that week goes to Mad Donna, a mystery Madonna impersonator who released a cover of nursery rhyme Wheels On The Bus set to the tune of Madge's song Ray Of Light. It managed to reach the dizzying heights of Number 17, which is pretty impressive, all things considered.

The initially published version of this chart had another entry for One Step Too Far at #68 - it was quickly realised that it should not have been there, and was thus removed.

One of my favourite charts from 2002 this. Sugababes, S Club Juniors and NSYNC were all amongst my favourites at the time. See also: the chart the week after with Holly Valance at #1!

Kylie’s first year of pop success saw a run of hits that many artists could only dream of achieving. From her very first chart-topper I Should Be So Lucky spending five weeks at Number 1 in early 1988 to her scoring a second, this time with Jason Donovan in the first week in 1989, with Especially For You, Kylie quickly positioned herself as a chart force to be reckoned with.

Within the space of a year she'd landed five Top 2 hits in a row, four from her hit debut album, also handily titled Kylie. But now it was time for that 'difficult second album'. Could Kylie deliver?

Hand On Your Heart was another single continuing what was to become a great Kylie tradition of entering the Official Singles Chart at Number 2. Fans waited eagerly to see whether Kylie could move up one to take the top spot – the memories of The Loco-Motion’s stalled attempt from summer 1988 still fresh in their minds. They needn’t have worried.

Two weeks after its release, Hand On Your Heart climbed to Number 1, ending The Bangles' four-week reign at the top. Hand On Your Heart spent just one week at the summit, toppled by charity record Ferry Cross The Mersey, by the Christians, Holly Johnson, Paul McCartney, Gerry Marsden and Kylie’s very own producers Stock Aitken Waterman.

To date, Hand On Your Heart has sold over 488,000 copies. And it's still getting some love - last week 34 people downloaded it in the UK.

Elsewhere in the Top 40 this week in 1989, Queen were the week's highest new entry at Number 3 with I Want It All, earning them a 17th Top 10 single, and a remix/re-release of Chaka Khan's I'm Every Women reached a new all-time chart peak at Number 8.

Further down, Roxette's debut single The Look was up 12 places to 14 (it was reach the Top 10 the following week), and Diana Ross' Workin' Overtime climbed 10 places to Number 32 to become her 41st UK Top 40 hit.

'Hand On Your Heart' by Kylie was the biggest selling single in the UK the previous week and would have entered the chart at number 1 (and which would have made Kylie the first solo female artist to achieve the feat) had the cassette single version of the single been chart eligible. Although cassette singles were an eligible format, minimum pricing rules were the same as that of a 12" single. 'Hand On Your Heart' was on sale at the same price as a 7" single (£1.99) and cheaper than chart rules allowed. Over 10,000 sales of 'Hand On Your Heart' were on the chart ineligible cassette single format and had they been eligible Kylie would have outsold 'Eternal Flame' by The Bangles with ease - officially The Bangles outsold Kylie by 1,600 copies. The chart rules were changed at the end of May 1989 which allowed 2 track cassette singles to be sold at the same price as a 7" single.

I always thought 'Hand On Your Heart' was pretty overrated out of her 80s stuff - I much preferred the following two singles 'Wouldn't Change a Thing' and 'Never Too Late' - but it's recently hit me and I can appreciate it as a prime example of 80s pure pop excellence. Despite the make or break situation being described in the lyrics, the song's cheery production never lets up.

As comebacks go, Spinning Around was less a reinvention and more a reminder of what Kylie Minogue is all about: fun, sparkly and undeniably catchy pop tunes.

After taking a left-turn on 1998’s Impossible Princess, an intriguing, experimental album that divided critics – Spinning Around was a return to the core principles of Brand Kylie. It was fun. It was camp. It was for the clubs. It was tiny gold hotpants.

Rather than re-treading her Stock, Aitkin & Waterman sound, which didn't hold the nostalgic value it has today, Spinning Around played into the disco-pop revival happening in 2000 (see: Spiller’s Groovejet and Modjo’s Lady Hear Me Tonight).

The result was Kylie’s I Should Be So Lucky for the new Millennium; and it went down a treat with the public. Spinning Around landed straight in at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart 17 years ago this week with opening sales of just over 82,000. Against the odds, Kylie was back.

I remember this chart well...I was coming back from a week's holiday in Dorset with my family and remember listening to this chart rundown whilst we were parked up at a service station on the M4 somewhere!

Loved 'Spinning Around', I also really loved the David Gray 'Babylon' record. Such a beautiful track even now. And I completely forgot this was the infamous Girl Thing release week. If anyone's seen their episode of The Big Reunion, or remembers their launch from around that time, Simon Cowell spent an astronomical amount trying to launch them and even got them to pre-record an interview with Radio 1 celebrating a number one they weren't even within a whisker of achieving!

“Dreams of Number 1 last forever…”

That lyric, from Rachel Stevens’s Some Girls, neatly summarises what happened on the Official Singles Chart 13 years ago this week, when she lost out on bagging a Number 1 single.

It was arguably Rachel’s strongest bid for the top spot; her debut single post-S Club 7, Sweet Dreams My LA Ex, also peaked at 2, but Some Girls was electro-pop in a different league.

The story behind the song is as intriguing as the song itself. Helmed by hit producer Richard X and songwriter Hannah Robinson, Some Girls was initially intended for Girls Aloud, before music mogul Simon Fuller (Spice Girls, Pop Idol) stepped in and asked if one of two acts he was looking after could record it: Rachel Stevens, or Geri Halliwell.

When Geri found out the song was to go to Rachel, she locked herself in a car in protest, and the whole ordeal became the subject of a later song by Richard X and Hannah, Me Plus One by Norwegian singer Annie.

If that wasn’t bizarre enough, Some Girls – about a vacuous aspiring singer who would do anything to get ahead ("You made a promise I'd get to the top!"), delivered impeccably by Rachel’s icy vocal – was chosen as that year’s official Sport Relief charity single. The accompanying music video sees Rachel leading a group of women around who squirt men with water bottles, which isn’t as suggestive as it’s sounds.

Some Girls debuted at Number 2 on the Official Chart this week in 2004 with first week sales of 43,000, losing out to the mighty Lola’s Theme by Shapeshifters. The British production duo debuted straight in at Number 1 with their disco house classic with opening week sales of 52,000.

Lola’s Theme logged just one week at the top, but its overall sales are significantly higher than Some Girls, 374,000 to 151,000.

As for the rest of the Top 40 this week 13 years ago, Usher’s Burn had been knocked from 1 to down to 3, and there were new entries from J-Kwon’s Tipsy (4), Jamelia’s See It In A Boy’s Eyes (5, co-written by Chris Martin!) and Morrissey’s First Of The Gang To Die (6). Eclectic.

Further down, there were also new entries from US band Counting Crows, their song for Shrek 2 Accidentally In Love was to be their last Top 40 hit, and Nelly Furtado bowed at 40 with her forgotten gem Forca.

Ah memories!

(Wasn't this Usher's 3rd week on the chart for "Burn"? It states above 4 but it moved 1-1-3 - unless it charted below 75 on leaked copies the week before number 1 of course)

apparently 'Burn' re-entered the chart at #1, must've charted in the top 200 on leaked copies at some point.

Aqua doctor Jones such a underated gem yes I know it got number 1 but often gets over looked because the other song laugh.gif

Replace "Doctor Jones" with "Turn Back Time" and yes laugh.gif "Doctor Jones" is as almost novelty as "Barbie Girl"! I actually enjoy "Doctor Jones" though, HATE "Barbie Girl" sick2.gif
