ELIZA DOOLITTLE
British female singer, born Eliza Caird, 17/4/88. She is the daughter of Francis Ruffelle

Total Hits : 6 Total Weeks : 76





A second generation hitmaker, her mother Frances Ruffelle was a West End and Broadway actress who won a Tony award in 1987 for her performance in Les Misérables, and sang for the UK in the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest finishing in 10th.

Ruffelle's mother and therefore Eliza Doolittle's grandmother is Sylvia Young OBE, the founder of the famous theatre school in London

Eliza also had a role in Les Misérables during 1996-7 playing the young Cosette.

Her singles chart career was based mainly around a number of quirky performances but was also a featured vocalist on a dance tune by Disclosure

Not much has been heard of her since 2013, but she did release an album just as "Eliza" called "A Real Romantic" in 2017 but neither the album nor any singles made any chart impact.

She does have a number one single on her CV though - she was part of the Justice Collective for their recording of "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" which was the 2012 Christmas number one.

'Radar Detector' is a real throwback, a song I completely forgot existed and don't think I've heard it since 2010!

You & Me seems like such a random collab these days but it worked so well! Shame she fizzled out I think she had potential and a talented voice! Even if she wasn't doing the throwback sound I think she could've carved out a niche.

You and Me is a fantastic dance song - such an odd combination but it works so well.

I adore 'You & Me'. My favourite song by both her and Disclosure.

Total Hits : 15 Total Weeks : 125







Very up and down - four top five hits but only one other top 20.

Some interesting featured credits, with the Professor appearing on both side of the word "featured", with a few of them making their only UK chart appearances (Sierra Klusterbuck, a.k.a. Sierra Kay), Ruth-Anne (a.k.a. Ruth-Anne Cunningham) and Alice Chater (not a.k.a. anything else at all as far as I know)

I've been "on record" in a number of places saying how much I dislike songs which are basically a rap with a sung bit tacked on (or vice versa) as they don't compliment each other, but "Lullaby" is perhaps one of the few where it works.

DIANA VICKERS
British female singer/songwriter, born 30/7/91. She finished 4th in the 2008 series of "The X Factor"
01 May 10 Once 1 11 wks
17 Jul 10 The Boy Who Murdered Love 36 6 wks
30 Oct 10 My Wicked Heart 13 4 wks
03 Aug 13 Cinderella 76 1 wk
Total Hits : 4 Total Weeks : 22





Another of my favourites. I don't watch the X-Factor or other similar talent shows very much, but I saw one of Diana's performances on Youtube (probably "Hallelujah" or "White Flag") and I was hooked.

Although she might not have had a successful career as Alexandra Burke, Diana's "Hallelujah" knocks socks off Alexandra's.

By the time the second album came around, unfortunately the music business had moved on to other performers and when lead single "Cinderella" could only get to No. 76, the writing was on the wall.

Shame, because there were some very good tracks on the "Music To Make Boys Cry" album that with the right kind of promo could have done much better.

(She of course had a second number one as part of the X-Factor finalists mangling of Mariah Carey's "Hero")

FYFE DANGERFIELD
British male singer/songwriter/guitarist, born Fyfe Antony Dangerfield Hutchins, 7/7/80. He is also the lead singer of the Guillemots
08 May 10 She's Always A Woman To Me 7 18 wks
Total Hits : 1 Total Weeks : 18



The Guillemots had five top 50 hits between 2006 and 2008, with the highest peaking of them being "Get Over It" making No. 20 in 2008.

Lead singer Fyfe Dangerfield beat that when his cover of a Billy Joel song made the top 10 after being used in a John Lewis advert.

Joel's version was also in the charts at the same time. For the week they both entered, Joel was No. 25 and Dangerfield was way down at No. 99, but the week after the relative positions were flipped and the Englishman's version became the better seller.

I much preferred the first single “She Needs Me” (charted: #152) - I remember buying it on CD single from HMV in Lincoln during that bitterly cold January. The solo album wasn't that great IIRC but I did love that Guillemots debut. “Made-Up Love Song #43” and “Trains To Brazil” remain firm 2000s faves for me.

I felt at the time that Joshua Radin's 'I'd Rather Be With You' might go on to become as omnipresent as Jason Mraz's 2 big hits (it even peaked at #11 like both of those did!) - not complaining though that it instead went to pretty quickly fade into obscurity, it was nothing special.

All Time Low are most notable to me for the amusing trivia that 'Weightless' by them debuted at #100 the same week that the song 'All Time Low' by The Wanted entered at #1. They had a few decent songs though (including 'Weightless') - forgot that they had that many top 100 hits actually, not bad for a rock band in this day and age.

I loved Eliza Doolittle's debut album at the time, a lot of it hasn't aged well but I maintain that 'Pack Up' is a great song (as is her Disclosure collab ofc).

Professor Green's star really faded rather quickly (apart from the anomaly of 'Lullaby') looking back! Though I think he does still have the potential to have another hit with the right song (as shown by that Alice Chater collab doing ok enough just last year).

Did Fyfe even attempt to follow up She's Always A Woman? I remember loving his version at the time. Plus it soundtracks the most memorable John Lewis advert for me.

JODIE CONNOR
British female singer, born 8/5/81
08 May 10 Good Times (Roll Deep featuring Jodie Connor) 1 18 wks
29 Jan 11 Now Or Never (Jodie Connor featuring Wiley) 14 4 wks
05 Mar 11 Bring It (Jodie Connor featuring Tinchy Stryder) 37 6 wks
Total Hits : 3 Total Weeks : 28





Jodie was closely associated with the 2010-1 British Rap Scene, all three of her chart appearances are joint credits with artists from that genre.

Several years before, she was a contestant in the early stages of the 2nd series of "Pop Idol", the one won by Michelle McManus but was eliminated before the final 12

After her hits, she just seemed to fade away. Wikipedia mentions a couple of singles in 2012 (including one featuring Busta Rhymes) that did nothing, and one more in 2016 but that's about it.

LADY ANTEBELLUM
American male/female vocal/instrumental group - Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley & Hillary Scott. They have won 7 Grammy awards out of 13 nominations
08 May 10 Need You Now 15 46 wks
27 Aug 11 Just A Kiss 78 2 wks
Total Hits : 2 Total Weeks : 48



It's never been easy for American country artists to have a sustained UK chart career, but plenty have had the odd hit here or there and Lady Antebellum are one of those acts.

It took over two years after the chart debut for "Need You Now" to reach it's UK peak, and even that was nearly a year after the original US release. The song made No. 2 in the Billboard Top 100 and topped their genre charts for Adult Contemporary, Adult Top 40 and Hot Country Songs, and fininshed 2nd in the Billboard 2010 year-end chart.

They changed their name to "Lady A" in June 2020 due to the association of "Antebellum" with the slavery era of the Southern United States.

AGGRO SANTOS
Brazilian male rapper, born Yuri Santos, 12/10/89
15 May 10 Candy (Aggro Santos featuring Kimberly Wyatt) 5 18 wks
04 Sep 10 Saint Or Sinner 19 4 wks
29 Jan 11 Like U Like (Aggro Santos featuring Kimberley Walsh) 8 5 wks
Total Hits : 3 Total Weeks : 27





A rare Brazilian entry into the UK charts although he had been long resident in London.

He must have had a thing for Kim W's, as the featured artists on his two biggest hits are Kims Wyatt (Pussycat Dolls) and Walsh (Girls Aloud)

As the current series of "I'm A Celebrity..." is just starting, I had forgotten that Santos had appeared on the 2010 series, finishing 6th (the top two were fellow chart stars Stacey Solomon and ex-Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder)

Have you been to visit me at aggrosantos.com? cheeseblock.png

Got to love how Lady A/ntebellum changed their name to avoid racism allegations... and in doing so picked a name that was already in use by a long established black artist :')
