UK Chart Run: 58-23-2-1-1-1-1-1-2-3-4-9-18-38-61 (15 weeks)

Just missing out on a spot in the final is Cher with her 1991 #1 The Shoop Shoop Song. It's done pretty well to get this far though as the song is definitely of its time and isn't one you hear too often these days, aside from of course when Dragon performed it recently on the Masked Singer! I wasn't a huge fan of this at the time but I can definitely see the appeal in retrospect, a fun song that just about stays on the right side of the cheese line and a worthy top 3 finish.

Review by PCF:

"Cher is fabulous. This track though isn't as fabulous as most of her back-catalogue, and came from the film "Mermaids" and the catchy video introduced this song to another generation of kids and reminded older music fans of a song that didn't get a lot of oldies airplay in the UK. Originally released as a flop by Merry Clayton in 1963 under the sensible title It's In His Kiss, it was covered in 1964 by Betty Everett in an identikit clone version, and went to the top of the US charts using the gimmicky title Shoop Shoop Song. The Merry Clayton version is better, and Cher's version is also a carbon copy of it, albeit speeded-up a bit with Cher in full foghorn mode. In between, British folk/soul singer-songwriter Linda Lewis, the first black female British singer-songwriter artist to have well-deserved success, had a brief one-off diversion into disco during The Year Of Disco, 1975, when she covered the song under it's original title, a frantic, amazingly high-pitched romp that deserves to be remembered more than it is for a top 10 hit. For most of the UK public in 1991 this was the 'original' version. Cher, however, is the one everyone remembers, being as it was a retro monster smash. I reached saturation-point about two months into it's run and haven't really gone back to it. You want classic 90's Cher, go to Believe, One By One or many others...."


Soooooooooo that leaves us with just the two songs left! ohmy.gif Yes, it's the final round! ohmy.gif Some, including myself, thought we'd never actually reach this point! ohmy.gif laugh.gif But here we finally are, time for Buzzjack to choose it's favourite from 1991...

Remember to vote for your FAVOURITE track in the final... go go go go go!

It's Chesney for me... a real guilty pleasure of mine. laugh.gif wub.gif

Plus I don't really associate that Queen track with 1991 so I can't vote for it.

161* days later and we've made it tongue.gif

Big fan of Shoop Shoop Song, it's one of those super cheesy oldies but extremely catchy.

This is an absolute no contest in this finale, Queen every day of every week (although The One And Only >>> TATDOOL)

Queen to win! But a bit tragic that a song that wasn't actually released in 1991 for the first time is so much better than the rest of the list for me oops kink.gif

come on Chesney last this year!!!!
I loved the Chesney song back in the day, might be a bit cheesy but it's good pop

Bohemian Rhapsody is of course amazing but it's a re-release so voting for Chesney!

Not really fussed with the year it came out, Queen still easily have the best song(s) here! (have a lot of love for The One & Only as well though)

It's Queen for me.

I did have a little ponder before voting as the song was not released in 1991 but... come on... it's Bohemian Rhapsody!!

I love both Queen songs but as I seem to be the biggest Nik Kershaw fan on Buzzjack, I'm voting for the song he wrote for Chesney.

Queen for me TOAO is iconic but love ‘Bohemian Rap’ and adore the B-Side too even more in fact!

Bo Rap is one of the greatest records of all-time, but it's on the radio week-in week-out and 45 years is enough! Don't want to hear it anymore.....!

So, judging this on the track that WAS 1991, These Are The Days Of Our Lives, a heartbreaking, touching goodbye from Freddie, and the fun Nik Kershaw record with a Chesney vocal on top. It's got to be Freddie......

I'm in no real position to judge since I haven't voted in previous rounds but very surprised that these are the top 2 for 1991!

Queen get my vote anyway!
