[b]11th September 1994[/b]

Itís an amazing 18th Number One in almost 9 years for Pet Shop Boys, and the 5th in a row from album Very, albeit remixed. Mad? Yesterday When I Was Mad on them, that is. Still am. Tough on Kylie, as her exotic confiding has to make do with a peak at 2 just short of that elusive number one. Prince and Lightning Seeds both add to the list of Top 5ís, Lisa Loeb gets her only Top 10 hit, and Dave Stewart shows he doesnít need Annie to grab a top 10 hit either, 15 years on from The Tourists.

Highest new entry is Tom Robinsonís Days That Changed The World, a mellow track that youíll be lucky to find anywhere online. Iíve tried. Shara and Cyndi get another top 40 each, while The Wonder Stuff claim to be unbreakable at 36, REM pose a query about frequencies to Kenneth at 39, and an inferior remix of Atomic brings Blondie back 14 years on from hitting my top spot, at 38.

At 52 itís a great dance track from Corona, Rhythm Of The Night, which should have been bigger (though it did well in the Uk charts), and at 67 a massive US hit record that youíll find in the dictionary linked to the word ďoverratedĒ. Or is it ďOver-ratedĒ? Either way, itís BoyzIIMenís End Of The Road part 2. Talking of huge hits, itís Saturday Night at 72, about to knock off Wet Wet Wet from the top of the UK singles chart. Of the two, Iíd rather listen to Whigfield. Deedee nananana.

18th September 1994

2 weeks for Chris n Neil on top, and Cyndi takes the reworking of Girls Just Want To Have Fun to 4, beating (bizarrely) itís original peak a decade earlier. Iím sure everyone recalls Bad Boys Inc second top 10, Love Here I Come? No, me neither! How embarrassing to see it shoot up from 65 to 8 and have no memory of it. Just Youtubed it, still drawing a blank! Roxette meanwhile bring Fireworks back to the top 10, exploding for a 5th year into the heights.

Aswad and Crowded House have big leaps into the 30, Corona and D:Ream into the 40, and the highest new entry is Terry Hallís own version of his Lightning Seeds number one, the glorious Sense at 38, giving him 15 years of hits (with The Specials, Fun Boy 3, Colourfield and solo). East 17 Steam into 52, and Saint Etienne Hug My Soul at 58, reliably good at any stage of their career. Bon Joviís monster hit Always pops in at 70, while the Stones grab bottom place, but hey 75 is better than nothing.

25th September 1994

3 weeks for the Petties on top, and Edie Brickell gets her biggest hit, the fab Good Times at 3, with more than a bit of a hand from Barry White, who also gets his highest ever chart placing to date after 21 years of hits. Corona take that rhythm to 7, and Michelle takes her sweetness to 9. Saint Etienne are the big climbers though, hugging number 14 from 58.

Suede get the highest new entry, rather modestly claiming they are the pigs. Surely not! East 17 steam up 26, Billy Idol speeds up to 28 and C.J. Lewis has yet another oldie reggae cover in the top 40 at 33. Other newies: Snap! welcome tomorrow at 44, Madonnaís got a Secret (shhh sheís only 48), Sealís newborn friend arrives at 54, and some well-known biggies plop in lower down: Irish reggae act Pat OíBanton borrows UB40 and covers Eddy Grant - not as well as The Equals, it must be said (and Eddy was in the band so thatís fair) but gets in at 58; The Lion King standard Circle Of Life was just a pleasant Elton John single 20 years ago, in at 59, and Take That seem Sure of going higher than 65 - or will they!? Answer in a few weeks...

2nd October 1994

4 weeks at 1 for mad Pet Shop Boys, holding off a new threat from Coronaís Rhythm Of The Night at 2, then a bunch of girl singers dominate the top 10 except for East 17, Steam-ing up to 7, and Pato Banton Baby Come Back-iing at 9, with the wondrous Saint Etienne huggin my soul at 10, keeping up their top 10 run. Look at 2 Unlimited up 58 places with No-one! No, I donít remember it either - but I obviously liked it. Madonna I do remember even if sheís only up 27 places to 21. Shhh donít give away that secret! Eltonís Circle Of Life, of course, everyone knows, up 30 to 29, showing chart positions donít matter if youíre in a Disney film, new generations pick up on it.

Bon Jovi and The Rolling Stones bring some rock into the 40, but highest new entry is the man from Orange Juice and his very classic A Girl Like You: Edwyn Collins. This is another case of, eh?! It took another 6 months to start charting worldwide (and in the UK for it to be a hit), but I loved it the minute I heard it, so justice was eventually done. Whigfield makes my top 40, too - I didnít recall liking it that much, much it hadnít started to grate yet obviously. Jamiroquai enters his Space Cowboy phase at 65, and Gloria Estefan is well into her disco retro phase as she covers Vicki Sue Robinsonís Turn The Beat Around. Chuck in a model (Naomi), TV kids show duo (PJ & Duncan aka Ant n Dec), 2 soul divas battling it (Kym and Jocelyn) and two rock greats Neil Young (just vacating my 2014 number one slot after 42 years of waiting) and INXS (brilliant live band), and that completes the chart report.

9th October 1994

Itís a new number one for Corona and the great dance track Rhythm Of The Night, as recently covered by Bastille. Iíll stick with the original myself, itís fab. Big leap for Bon Jovi to 4, and their signature ballad Always - not my favourite Bon Jovi record by any means these days, but it seemed good enough at the time. Elton also circles around the top 10, giving him 23 years of regular top 10ís, while 2 Unlimited grab a final top 10 hit, I really must youtube it now!

Highest of only 4 new entries is Ace Of Base at 19, and a Happy Nation applauds their 5th top 20 entry. Aerosmith are back in with Crazy, as it starts to take hold at 26, Heavy D & The Boyz make the 40 with This Is Your Night, as do INXS, Kym & Jocelyn covering ZZ Top, PJ & Duncan, and new at 40 The Pretenders keep the hits coming 15 years on, 977 apparently, though I suspect itís a few less than that. Sonic Youth are Superstars at 54 covering The Carpenters classic in a fab distorted morose indie-style, and Counting Crows meet the Rain King at 73, for a quiet chart week.

16th October 1994

2 weeks for Corona fizzing on top, as Edie Brickell and Barry White peak at 2, Good Times indeed for a fab soulful ballad. Elton John goes in Circles Of Life at 5, the latest in a very long list of top 5 singles, and ditto for Madonna in the top 10 as Secret hits 8. INXSí terrific The Strangest Party shoots up to 12, and really should have been a big hit, instead their career declined steeply and unfairly, not quite fitting into Britpop. Aerosmith, Edwyn Collins and Snap all return to the top 20 with new stuff, as the chart suddenly wakes up with a deluge of new entries.

Highest, in at 22, Sparks enjoy one of their periodic comebacks, 20 years on from This Town Ainít Big Enough For Both Of Us, they ponder When Do I Get To Sing ĎMy Wayí? Right now, itís Moroder-dance-era-styled fab. Massive Attack enter Sly-ly at 28, just ahead of a charity version of Marvin Gayeís classic Whatís Going On? Let Loose follow up a big pop hit with a decent forgotten pop hit, but not at Seventeen, at 31. Crash Test Dummies bounce back at 37 berating God for shuffling his feet a bit, Pink Floyd are back for the final time (barring 2014 sessions from 1994) and Keep Trackiní at 50, 15 years after hitting number one with a brick.

China Black following up terrific number one Searching, with terrific melodic follow-up Stars at 51, Oasis sing about ciggies and booze in a T.Rex Get-It-On vibe at 60, how quaint holding up nicotine and drink as alternative solutions to having to work for a living. OK everyone, letís quit our jobs and get pissed and see how long society lasts! As a record, itís nowhere near as good as either Get It On, or predecessor Live Together. Over-rated much. The Manics suffer at 69, Aaliyah is still a minor but slides in at 71, and if there ever was a record that annoyed me more than Ciggies n Booze itís Zombie, in at 74. The gorgeousness of Linger is replaced by repeated harpy calls, a record that with the passage of time only sounds worse. Ouch!

23rd October 1994:

The charts go insane suddenly, massive leaps, massive new entries, and massive drops under the pressure of 18 new entries, and itís all great stuff too! Up 50 places from 51 to 1, one of the biggest climbs to the top ever, itís China Black getting their second chart-topper of the year, the lovely entirely youtube absent Stars, overshadowing Sparks big climb to 3, their biggest hit since 1979. Highest new entry is at 5, and itís Abba with Just Like That. No, not a Tommy Cooper tribute record, itís one of the final recordings by Abba only available in the middle of a single track compilation of bits & pieces which were released as part of a box set of rare stuff in 1994. Gemini (the Abba boys proteges after Abba) had already released a version, but the original Abba short version is a cut above, and should have been a single.

New Orderís classic True Faith from 1987 is remixed and still corking, back in at 10, just behind R Kelly and one of his best records, vibing swiftly along entering at 7. Not to be outdone Tom Jones re-invents himself again with the storming If I Only Knew in at 13. Massive Attack, Crash test Dummies and (somehow!) PJ & Duncan/Ant n Dec get into the 20, before some more new entries: Elasticaís terrific Connection is at 30, Amy Grant is back 3 years on from Baby Baby, Say Youíll Be Mine, she says at 33, while Donna Summerís got a melody of love at 37, 18 years after groaning her way into my charts.

At 38, the Crosby Stills & Nash classic, Teach Your Children, never charted before, pops in courtesy of a version re-recorded by the band along with some country artists (including Alison Krauss) for an AIDS benefit album. Up to 21 the other charity record is for Rwanda and features a wealth of urban and stars of the time, and itís pretty good. Status Quo are in my current chart with new material (Nov 2014) and 20 years ago they were in at 39 with Sherri Donít Fail Me Now. 40 years ago they were already 2 years into their chart career with me. No, they donít all sound the same.

Outside the top 40: Claptonís back with a ballad at 44, it ainít no Layla! The Beautiful South, Sting, Janet Jackson all keep the run of hits going while Sheryl Crow debuts her biggie All I Wanna Do at 75. To rub it in, thatís one place lower than Shampoo! Ah, well, it WAS a very busy chart!

30th October 1994

2 weeks on top for China Black, and a new entry at 2 for LWS and GOSP, an obscure rave non-hit with a 30Ďs blues vibe, that pushed my buttons oddly - I donít recall going raving in 1994! Up to 3, higher second-time round, itís True Faith for New Order. Edwyn Collins drops 2 (for now) but his biggest hit since Orange Juice went top 10 with Rip It Up in 1993 will be back in 1995. Music Relief take Whatís Going On into the top 10, following Cyndi Lauperís version, and preceding Marvin Gayeís original. Tom Jones gets a span of top 10 hits of exactly 26 years, I Only I Knew that in 1968 when I started charting!

Aerosmith hit a new peak of 11, INXS grab another top 10, Eric Clapton leaps to 16, and Terry Hall re-enters with his own (previous number one) cover version of his Lightning Seeds co-write/sing, at 13 - well it all makes Sense to me! Terrorvision bolt in, screaming Alice, Whatís The Matter! I loved Terrorvision consistently, great fun. Sting and Pink Floyd bring some veteran rock into the 40, albeit both mellow, just like Clapton, while Eternal manage to break into the 30 - Oh Baby I donít know why!

Sheryl Crow rockets to 33, a good dance pop track from The Real McCoy give me another night at 37, Seal bounces back in again with a newborn friend, and Rozalla adds to her diminishing peaking list of follow-ups to Everybodyís Free, with You Never Love The Same Way Twice at 47. Well, I try not to at any rate, canít speak for Rozalla. REM have some Bang and Blame at 58, Brand New Heavies spend some time at 59, while interesting indie band Grant Lee Buffalo sneak in at 63 with some Mockingbirds, pipping Echobelly, Chris Rea and Foreigner (both School of 1978), and Paul Weller (School of 1977).

6th November 1994

Itís an unexpected unheard track from Abba, under 2 minutes long, that gets them another Number One, their 4th since their initial run of singles ended in 1983, and in doing so giving them an unbroken run of chart-toppers since 1976 when Mamma Mia hit the top, plus Waterloo in 1974. Itís short and very sweet, and takes the best bits from a less-good extended version of the song. I was just over-joyed to have an Abba song I didnít know from their abruptly-ended late period...

Terrorvision and Aerosmith bring some rock into the 10, while various veteran rock artists invade the 20: Clapton, Sting, Elton, Pink Floyd, and errr Eternal. Pink Floyd get their first top 20 hit since Another Brick In The Wall 15 years earlier, Keep talkiní being the better of the two tracks, almost classic Dark Side Of The Wall Floyd-sounding. Big moves for Brand New Heavies funky retro jazz Spend Some Time up at 24, while 1969 Bond Theme flop finally gets to be a hit thanks to an advert: We Have All The Time In The World belatedly gives the great Louis Armstrong a hit, he was a big star when I was a child and I remember hearing heíd died in 1970, What A Wonderful World being a classic fave in particular, but just missing out on my charts starting by 6 months. In at 35, and still fab.

At 36, Donna Summer has a very 90ís-sounding dance top 40 new hit to stretch her run back to 1976 - though not as classic sounding, her voice is still great. Oasis get that third Top 40 hit as Fags and Booze T.Rex riff-nicker sneaks in at last, while Kylieís back, and with a just goooooorgeous ballad, complete with gravity-defying space-capsule ballet video for Put Yourself In My Place, her best record to date in what was becoming a shockingly long run of great pop singles. M People also are back with a nifty catchy soulpop track, well they sure are a sight for sore eyes at 51! Finally, sneaking in, Kate Bush, And So Is Love, one Iíd forgotten, an understated ballad with rock guitar moments.

13th November 1994

New Orderís 1987 classic finally gets them that elusive chart-topper after 14 years of trying, more or less, as True Faith (remixed and not destroyed) bounces up on top. Itís a great record. Also bouncing back, a future world hit from Edwyn Collins reaches a new peak of 4 with the brilliant A Girl Like You. Terry hall also takes his Sense back into the top 10, not quite as good as the Lightning Seeds chart-topper with his duet version, but pretty good.

Louis Armstrong, leaps his world to 10, the Real McCoy go top 20 again with another dance track, Sheryl Crow gets her first meanwhile, as Kylie goes Top 40 )of course she does!). Highest new entry is another oldie, this time Sandie Shawís flop single Nothing Less Than Brilliant, which still flopped second-time around, both times very undeservedly! Written by Sandie and her 60ís songwriter Chris Andrews, itís very Lloyd Cole and The Smiths, and fab.

Warren G gets a second laid-back rap top 40 hit, while highest-placed newest song to enter is Echo And The Bunnymen - more or less - with Zephyr at 44, known here as Electrafixion. At 58, Blur keep the hits coming with the under-rated End Of A Century, while Luther Vandross covers Stephen Stills Love The One Youíre With. Not only is it not anywhere near as good, itís also not anywhere as good as Bucks Fizzí mid-80ís version. Luluís back to add another entry to her 26 year span of varied hits, at 62 with a little help from Kim Wilde, while Suede slide in at 71 with The Wild Ones.

20th November 1994

Itís an instant number one for Madonna with her classy, melodic fab ballad Take A Bow, her first number one for 2 years and thatís over a dozen in total 10 years into her chart career. A huge American Number One I was utterly mystified how this became her first Top 10 flop in the UK, lost in the xmas ballad rush. Kylie meanwhile is another career diva on ballad form as Put Yourself In My Place shoots up to 9, and Sheryl Crow gets her first top 10, well itís all I wanna do...!

Big leaps from low to just outside the 10 from Blur and Kate Bush, keeping the artier side of pop present and correct, while Snap hit a new peak after oscillating wildly, at 15. Rozalla keeps her string of hits coming at 20, Sandie Shaw returns to the 40, and new in at 27 itís a xmas classic from East 17, Stay Another Day? Stay another 20 years more like! Teddy Pendergrass (despite the remix from consistently not-great KWS) gets a welcome chart return 21 years after his run of Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes soul classics, almost all of them more famous in inferior cover versions - especially his definitive passionate original of Donít Leave Me This Way - and years after being paralysed in a car crash. The More I Get The More I Want is a 1977 track.

Urge Overkill enter at 30 with a moody cover of Neil Diamondís Girl Youíll Be A Woman Soon, starting the reappraisal of his fabulous song back catalogue and wiping away the memories of the MOR years. Talking of MOR, the ultimate easy-listening group return at 32, even though poor much-missed Karen had been gone 11 years by then, with unreleased track Tryiní To Get The Feeliní Again. The Carpenters, often the object of rock loathing in their heyday, just kept on with the quality pop and in the end Cool became cool again, and there they have stayed. REM and Lulu got top 40, Sophie B. Hawkins has a good follow-up at 45 - Donít Donít Tell Me No! Billie Ray Martin, ex-Electribe 101, debuts at 75, and you better think twice...yes itís Celine Dion, years after Eurovision and 6 years after debuting in my charts, in at 71 with the record that made her massive - eventually. It took months to top the UK charts, and was written by Hill and Sinfield: yes, former King Crimson, ex-Eurovision winning songwriters for Bucks Fizz who wrote and produced a long run of varied and classy pop singles for Bucks Fizz for almost a decade, until they got fed up with diminishing returns and lack of critical respect, and moved over to big divas instead: thatíll be Cher and Dion then...

27th November 1994


Kylie knocks off Madonna after only one week on top, thatís how much I loved Put Yourself In My Place and her first number one. Gorgeous! Very much in a pre-xmas ballad groove over-all in fact, as East 17 leap to a Stay Another Day 3, Louis goes top 5, and highest new entry at 8 is Gloria Estefan with a 50ís ballad cover, the lovely Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me originally a US 1952 hit.

Load of other high new entries invade the chart, too, with Erasure at 10 with I Love Saturday. Well, donít we all! 8 years of regular Top 10ís for Erasure, 13 years for Vince Clarke. Actor Jimmy Nail had a 1992 number one with the terrific Ainít No Doubt 7 years after getting Rose Royce lyrics wrong on his cover of Love Donít Live Here Anymore. Now dabbling with country, he snaps in with Crocodile Shoes at 13. Baby D at 17 and a future UK chart-topper, cos itís a a great dance track - Let Me Be Your Fantasy, indeed.

Roxette drop in at 18, and those top 20 hits just seem to keep coming for them, 6 years and counting as they run to you. Sophie B. Hawkins gets a 5th top 20 entry, Celine Dion rapidly asserts herself at 28, not even thinking twice, and Jamiroquai slips in at 33 half the man he will be when his career really gets going. Janet Jackson also ponders, you want this? Not as much your earlier singles, dear, is the answer (though love that Love Child sample, now thatís a classic Diana Ross & The Supremes record). The final top 40 new entry is Joni Mitchell, back after a break, and 20 years after her first run of chart hits (in my charts at any rate), along with Seal, man of the moment.

Others: Primal Scream cry themselves blind at 50, Jaki Graham covers Rufus and Chaka Khan, Ainít Nobody else done that. Not. Sinead OíConnor is feeling grateful at 56, the Rolling Stones return at 75 out of tears, while the more recent and absent other Stones (Roses) come back with a limp spreading love at 67. That leaves only Ace Of Base living in danger with a slice of reggae pop preferable to more venerated artists, so Iíll link that one instead!

4th December 1994

2 weeks for Kylie on top as the christmas new entries (actual NEW christmas songs) keep a coming, but the biggest challenger is in at 2 for Cliffís double A side. Actually, not so much a double A side as a new Everly Brothers cover piggy-backing on the brilliant breathy 1976 single that changed everything for Cliff, and started off a run of credibility that lasted about 10 years. The gorgeous Miss You Nights was under-appreciated by me first time round, but justice is served and itís in at 2. 26 years of big hits and counting...

The big news is Mariah Carey, generally a shrieking harpy with no subtlety to speak of, manages to add to her short list of great hits (Fantasy, Dreamlover) with a 3rd self-written retro instantly classic-sounding christmas song as All I Want For Christmas enters at 19. Of course, once downloads started counting towards charts it became an annual visitor to the top 20 charts in the UK (and the US top 50), and hearing it endlessly for 20 years without relief for one single christmas has rubbed some of the charm off, but it is a bonafide christmas classic.

The other xmas song is Bon Joviís bloated version of Please Come Home For Christmas at 47, thanks mostly to the great song, cos I will take both the original 1959 Charles Brown original or the 1979 Eagles cover over this much more famous version. Jon Bon Jovi, despite being a handsome devil, and having got backstage at a live gig in Bournemouth, tends to sound as if heís straining too much, and that can only lead to hemorrhoids! Talking of piles, Rednex pop in with some Scandinavian hee-haw country pop, Cotton Eye Joe getting the dance treatment, and it IS genuinely intentionally funny, not to mention catchy, so I forgive it and love it. Even though I know I shouldnít.

At 28, the Human League are back with an on-form bang with Tell Me When 4 years since they last had a minor UK hit (and number 2 popchartfreak hit) and 14 years since first charting with a Gary Glitter cover. A new boyband cover an old boyband, fortunately the Johnny Bristol song is strong enough to cope with the less-good cover and it enters at 29 for Boyzone, actually already outdoing the original Osmonds version of Love Me For A Reason, which is one I sniffed my nose at in 1974 when I was too cool for boybands anymore, but which is actually harmonically and melodically pretty damn fine.

At 31 itís Elkie Brooks. Actually itís her 1977 hit song butchered and repeated rather a lot, a template for some modern dance pop hits which avoid superfluous choruses, lyrics, vocals and bridges at all costs, and bung in a crap quick rap instead and add little else of much interest. Not against that in principle, just when itís done badly. This oneís not bad. Another soul boyband return, BoyzIImen at 37. On bended knee, they were starting to sound a bit samey by now and it was wearing thin. To be honest it was pretty thin to begin with, despite a number one with End Of The Road and a couple of other good Top 10 singles. After the record-breaking (for tediousness) run forever atop the US singles chart Hot 100 in 1994 all they needed was months on top with Mariah Carey warbling away in duet to make me loathe them. Happily Iím sure neither party would be that cruel would they?

Others: a genre-varied bunch of new entries actually; grungy Pearl Jam, Under The Bridge Chili Pepper cover from The Flying Pickets, back after 11 years (!!), Youssou NíDour, Carter, Bomb The Bass and Robert Palmer. And C.J. Lewis. Try and find a unifying theme there, I challenge it!

11th December 1994

3 weeks for Kylie on top in slow-moving pre-xmas chart. Mariah shoots up to 4 and Celine to 6, both future actual Million sellers in the UK, while 2wo third3 and their annoyingly jumbled name rocket up to 9 from a quiet 42 new entry with I Want To Alone. Ooooh Greta Garbo getyouuuu. Itís campy í94-sounding dancepop with 80ís roots, not bad. Bon Jovi meanwhile warble up to 19 about coming home for christmas.

The Stone Roses and The Rolling Stones both go top 40, while a mellow Bomb The Bass take their reggae Dark Heart to 27, and Robert Palmer has 16 years of chart hits at 37, really? You blow me away! Youssou NíDour meanwhile hooks up with Neneh Cherry again, and throws in Deep Forest into the bargain, though I remain Undecided at 46. Need I mention The Power Rangers? Good, thought not. 50. Mike Oldfield sneaks in with a bit of new age at 74, Hibernaculum, giving him a cool 20 years of hits since Tubular Bells hit my number one spot, the only album to qualify for my singles charts, apart from Hergest Ridge. Also Oldfield.

18th December 1994

Cliffís 1976 classic finally gets to the top 18 years late, but then Miss You Nights was up against Bo Rap, Mamma Mia, Evil Woman, December 63 and others so it stood no chance! It's his 4th Number one, and a span of 24 years, though he would have had others in the 60's. Lower down, Cotton Eye Joe shoots his way up to 7, he got married a long time ago, where did he come from where did he go? Better ask Rednex! Bon Jovi meanwhile cover xmas up to 8, for a second top 10 hit of the year 8 years of chart entries on, as The Carpenters do an about-turn and rocket up to 9 giving them over 24 years of top 10ís since Close To You hit 1 in 1970.

I have no memory of Boyzone making my top 10 with Love Me For A Reason, but there it is, staring me in the face, I actually did like the soft-shuffle version after all! Human League go top 20, and highest new entry is Riverdance. Yes, things Oirish, and danciní were all the rigid-armed vogue, and it was refreshingly different for a time. A short time. At 25, Oasis dismiss the memory of the previous ďwhateverĒ single, with an actual Beatlestasticish classic: Whatever! Fab! Meanwhile The Stone Roses go top 20, as the Rolling Stones drop, to be replaced by Guns Ďní Roses version of their Sympathy For The Devil at 50.

Watch out, cos here comes the hotstepper, murderer, an american gangster - no itís not itís Ini Kamoze at 30, just ahead of Led Zeppelin at 32 with Gallows Pole. Well, as good as, really, 50% is better than none and itís a cover of the 100% Led Zep. The late Joe Cocker enters at 36, with Let The Healing Begin, and the fab Lightning Seeds are all Change at 38. Even more unlikely than Riverdance, itís George Formby When Iím Cleaning Windows, missus, at 45 courtesy of 2 In A Tent cheesy dance version. At 56, Siouxsie and The Banshees still have it, 16 years on from Hong Kong Garden, O Baby!

25th December 1994

The Christmas number one is the unthinkable - Mariah Carey tops my chart, who would have thought!? A great record though, even holding off the terrific Madonna at 2 for yet another week. In at 4 itís a double A oldie, both equally marvellous, the never-big-but-soon-to-be-classic feel-good perennial christmas song from 1988 Driving Home For Christmas, making my top 10 for the second time, and Chris Reaís heartbreakingly touching Tell Me Thereís A Heaven. His two best records together.

The rest of the chart is fairly quiet, though Human League go top 10, Lightning Seeds go top 20, and Sting enters at 29 with This Cowboy Song - and itís not a depressing ballad! Wow! The days of The Police were over a decade earlier, and Sting just failed to excite for the most part afterwards. Anything with a bit of vitality was a relief! At 30, itís a cover of another xmas perennial from The Peaches, a pretty good but identical cover of The Waitresses 1981 flop.
