What was happening in the UK charts this week 30 years ago?
Ask anyone aged 40-50 and they will tell you: the 90s were the best decade in musical history. Hip-hop, house, grunge, Britpop, Steps - the 20th century ended in a big musical party.
In this newsletter, we’re going to relive the decade in realtime by looking back on one of popular culture’s most ferocious battlegrounds: the UK Top 40. Who will be Number One next week? Phil Collins? The Prodigy? Nirvana? There was no way of knowing.
(Except during the 16 weeks that Bryan Adams was Number One. We will be reliving that nightmare later in 2021.)
