So we've finally finished the 1990 one with Beats International snatching a surprise win for the year with Dub Be Good To Me, defeating Madonna's Vogue in the final ohmy.gif

Dub Be Good To Me was one of the earlier tracks to have a Norman Cook involvement, following on from the Housemartins and preceding his work as Freakpower, Pizzaman and Fatboy Slim. He's got quite the chart record when you add it all up and he can proudly add his greatest achievement to date now to his CV, winning a buzzjack survivor surely has to be better than Praise You making #1? I must admit that I was expecting Vogue to win from the moment the 1990 survivor began so it was a surprise to me that Madonna couldn't quite snatch the victory, still the iconic track still strikes a pose in second place but will not be progressing to the decade final ohmy.gif

On to 1991 then and we have a fresh batch of 10 tracks for you to dissect and tear to pieces, beginning here in round one where you get to vote out your least favourite of the end of year top 10... get voting! happy.gif

Color Me Badd get my vote, really awful song!

Have to say this is not a vintage year, I preferred pretty much everything in 1990 to most of this lot.

No it made #2 I think. It’s one of the better songs in the list tbh

Just checked and it reached #3 for a few weeks

Yeh its decent but for such a big seller I thought it would be a classic that's commonly known but it really isn't (for me anyway).

Didn't think Oceanic Insanity would have made this list. Hopefully it or Bohemian Rhapsody will win out of these, although I do like that rather cheesy Cher song, remember it from when I was younger.

not a great batch. Gone for the one I recall hardly at all, Oceanic. The rest are very very well known, even if they are novelty songs, and I dont hate any of 'em.

The Simpsons track should really be labelled "DJ Michael Jackson featuring The Simpsons" according to today's habits...

Was definitely not expecting that 1990 winner! Decent enough song but preferred both Vogue & Killer.

1991 well this is quite the eclectic mix. Voting The Simpsons.

I've never heard that Oceanic song either but it has to better than Bartman.

Oceanic was a surprise hit and a controversal hit aswell as many people it promoted the use of drugs, while at the time i didnt pick up on its lyrics i loved the song and still do.

you guys never heard Oceanic-Insanity? The song was huge at the time, bit of same school as Ebeneezer Goode or Charly
It's for sure one of the best #1s of the early 90s

really bad list of songs for 91, the Simpsons one hardly qualifies as a song biggrin.gif

It wasn't a #1. If it was I would have heard of it as I recognise every #1 single at least from name.
