From memory what do you think have been the biggest years for music that you remember(eg biggest songs most remembered, stand out,momumentous),for me it would have to be 1999-it was a year full of huge hit singles with huge sales that are still remembered today.Also it was they year when many successful artists today debuted-Britney,Christina,Westlife,JLo,S club,Eminemetc. It also was a huge dance music year and had many dance classics with the likes of Blue,Better off alone,9pm til I come,Venga boys. It also had huge albums and singles from BSBs and Shania Twain etc
Also 2009 was a big year for music with the introduction of Lady Gaga,mega hits from Rihanna and BEPs huge singles with record sales at an all time high
Also 2011 when we had Adeles Domination,Katy Perry's huge hits and Lady Gagas record breaking singles and album etc

Years that stand out are 1955 (birth of rock and roll), 1963 (Beatlemania begins), 1973 (Glam Rock domination and the Slade/Wizzard Christmas chart battle), 1978 (Grease, Boney M and disco bringing massive sales in), 1984 (a ton of huge singles and Frankie Goes To Hollywood owning the year), 1997 (sales going absolutely through the roof at the end of the year) and 1999 (same reasons as you!).

2009 seemed quite big at the time but I'm not sure that many hits from then have lasted as long as I thought they would, even Lady Gaga's vanished a little since. 2011, not sure - loved it, but other than those big Adele songs there's not much about it I'd really call big.

I've noticed that certainly in clubs recently, the year 2003 seems to massively stand out in terms of "old" songs - I've heard In Da Club, Satisfaction, Seven Nation Army, Be Faithful, Hey Ya, Crazy In Love and Turn Me On all in clubs over just the last few months, with the likes of Bring Me To Life, Are You Gonna Be My Girl, Like Glue, Breathe, Ignition, Where Is The Love and more all lasting really well too. There's no other year before about 2011 I can compare that to with current club airplay.

Many people say that nothing much happened Chart-wise in 1974.

But March 1974 saw Queen have their 1st Hit, ('Seven Seas Of Rhye'), & April 1974 saw ABBA have their 1st Hit. ('Waterloo').

And both Groups still have Hit Albums in 2014.

I always think back to 2010. That was a big year for releases.

Eminem's big comeback, Rihanna's huge red haired era, the monster Teenage Dream era beginning for Katy Perry, Ke$ha's debut album and big singles, Alicia Key's biggest era in the UK, Lady GaGa was massive, we had the debut of B.O.B, Bruno Mars, Olly Murs, Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah, we had Plan B destroying the album charts and giving us quality singles, Jason Derulo had a big first album, Usher was huge, Justin Bieber was blowing up, Pixie Lott was big, The Saturdays were big, the World Cup songs were hits, Dizzee Rascal was popular and racking up #1 singles etc. Oh and Owl City was a surprise big hit, charity songs were still a success and X-Factor/Britains Got Talent were at a peak in popularity to really make things more exciting.

It was such a varied year and was so busy and there was so much competition. Brings back alot of great memories. biggrin.gif

2011 was too dance heavy, 2012 was far too slow with Call Me Maybe/We Are Young/Somebody That I Used To Know/Gangnam Style sticking around far too long and 2013 was pretty faceless overall.

2011 produced about nine million sellers in the end didn't it? It didn't seem that huge at the time but evidently there were some MAJOR smashes released.

1967 is worth mentioning too. The so called year of the "summer of love", the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper album was released and the group were denied another No.1 with Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever by Engelbert Humperdinck's Release Me. Other notable and memorable singles were I'm A Believer, All You Need Is Love and A Whiter Shade Of Pale.

1981 saw the rise of electro pop synth bands like Human League, Soft Cell etc
1979 saw the first major Rap hit (Rappers Delight Suharhill Gang
1987 saw hip hop music start to make major inroads into the charts and also saw House music start to become hugely popular

2005 X Factor acts started hitting the top of the charts laugh.gif

In terms of big singles, 1983 stands out a lot - almost all of it's highest selling singles are modern day classics and still played to this date, plus the first Now album was released!

2009 also was fairly significant, albeit probably not in the sense that a lot of the songs went on to be classics more in terms of music and charts itself - huge sales, death of MJ, biggest Christmas number 1 race in years, lot of different genres doing well etc.

There were quite a few greats songs I loved in 2012. 2013 was pretty good with Avicii, Daft Punk etc. and this year there's a great variety of electro/dance music e.g. Robin Schulz. Of over 200 songs I have from 2014, I only have 12 5 star rated songs of that list. I had about 30-40 5 stars in 2013 and about 50 or so in 2012...

Surprised no-one has mentioned 1977 for the emergence of Punk (yes I know there were a few signs of what was to come in '76 but '77 was when things started to happen on a wider scale)

Creatively 1994 was phenominal. So many influencial album - Grace, Dummy, Definitly Maybe, The Downward Spiral probably the most influencial. Parklife, Dog Man Star, The Holy Bible, Protection, Music for the Jilted Generation, Vauxhall and I, His n Hers, Snivilisation, Selected Ambient Works II, Troublegum, Dookie, Under the Pink, No Need to Argue, The Division Bell.....probably forgetting a few.

I second this, a lot of 2003 hits have aged very well. If Crazy in Love, Hey Ya or In da Club were released now they would be million sellers easily!

I think 2013 will go down similarly in history, in 10 years time you can see songs like Get Lucky, Blurred Lines, Thrift Shop, Can't Hold Us being remembered as 2010s classics!

Can't Hold Us is near forgotten already, replace that with Wake Me Up.

In a true selfish fanboy way, I loved 2008 because Girls Aloud truly slayed in singles and albums they way they should have been doing for ages - thanks to Cheryl's X-Factor appearance. It was a great time to follow their chart success, and is one of the few times I've felt properly rewarded as a fan. It was also a time where single sales were really starting to increase again.

I agree Wake Me Up will be remembered as a 2013 classic, but disagree with the notion Can't Hold Us is forgotten! Still hear it on Capital for example. Very Outkast-y too, will go down as a classic.
