UK Chart Run: 2-1-1-2-2-3-6-12-15-27-41-65 (12 weeks)

After a very tight battle, it's Jason Donovan who must pick up his coat of many colours and leave the race, getting only one more vote last time around that Oceanic.

Review by PCF:

"Jason Donovan was in his post-SAW period by now, as they became last year's news, and all the acts bar Kylie were headed for the "Archive" section of pop history, so he did the sensible thing and moved into theatre where he could mix his acting and singing, starting with this revival of Lloyd-Webber/Rice's Joseph & The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat prime cut. I have seen the show, albeit with Gareth Gates not Jason, and have seen Jason in Pricilla Queen Of The Desert musical, where I got dragged into the show by virtue of having blagged my way into a cheap "royal box" ticket at the last minute. It involves a crane on a bus hanging over the stalls and a drag act taking the piss out of anyone in the box. I mention that as it's way more entertaining than Joseph, but then I'm not the target-audience (kids). This song is OK. It's not classic Lloyd-Webber, Jason's not the best singer in the world, but it probably appealed to generations of kids and former-kids who did it at school. We did the Pirates Of Penzance, so......not me."

Time to get voting and we'll see who's out next...

I love the Oceanic song, i know the meaning behind the song caused huge debate at the time, i remember having to wait months to be able to buy cassette single as where i lived only had a small local record store in the west of Ireland, i had to wait until a trip to Dublin before i could get it and when i did i was so happy, i still love the song today and still have the cassette single somewhere.

Out at last, it's The Record I Forgot Existed, Oceanic's Insanity. I'm listening to it now on my crappy distorted laptop speaker and I can't tell the difference from the non-distorted quality-sound version laugh.gif Just a bit tinnier. OK I've heard worse and 2nd time round in a few weeks it's not so bad after all, and if I was in a club and had a few bacardis I'd be lapping it up in all its cheesy 90's gloriousness and having a right old laugh. One the plus side, they're from The Wirral ("carrm down, carrm down, y'er awrighht mahte?"), and it also made the Australian top 40. In the wake of this number 3 hit they managed 3 follow-up top 40 hits in the UK, none of which I recall at all though it's entirely possible they all made my personal charts. Until I get my 1991 through 1997 charts digitised it'll remain a mystery as to why the braincells set aside for Oceanic's career must have been deleted in a 2000's update to allow more memory for other stuff!

Insanity was great but the follow-up singles were terrible, don't even know how they charted
