AUGUST 2008

Only 5 years ago, and the great Glen was back chart-topping 40 years on with covers of Green Day, and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, that were better IMHO (In My Humble Opinion) than the originals, while Abba were being big-timey rechartey thanks to Mamma Mia – and what better excuse for a few extra weeks at Number One for golden oldies!

Pop-wise, Kylie mysteriously under-performed in the real world with a fab single (but hey, big here), joined by Gabriella Cilmi, Sharleen and a few other pop ladies.

SEPTEMBER 2008

When I was very much departing from the singles chart, Glen Campbell’s new material impressing me much, and oldies from Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich. If you don’t know Last Night In Soho (most likely) and you like a classic epic-sounding single, try this, it’s a cinematic adventure covering a wealth of emotions and drama in 4 minutes. Probably the greatest obscure epic of all-time.

Meanwhile, Keane, Oasis & Jack White keep up the rock side of things amongst the dance tracks.

OCTOBER 2008

Lots of oldies, both vintage records and returning vintage acts back on a roll squeezing out the hit acts of the time from the top of the chart, notably Glen Campbell & Tom Jones and 2 classy ballads. Feeling a bit peeved at that number one spot being nicked by pensioners are Girls Aloud, Pink, Kanye West, Oasis, & Iglu & Hartley…

NOVEMBER 2008

Belatedly peaking at 1 (it would have done it in 1976 had it been eligible as well as 1968 had I charted a bit earlier) the forgotten epic Soho single, along with Glen Campbell’s gorgeous new version of Jackson Browne’s early 70’s These Days, had the unfortunate effect of keeping Kanye West off the top – very much a theme sadly for Kanye singles (bar one)! Tom Jones also back (again and again) with a great song that should have been big. What applies to Kanye also sadly applies to Pink, the perennial bridesmaid in my charts, she’s just never quite topped the chart but come close many times.

DECEMBER 2008

Back to the old monthly format for these as it’s a new year and I’ve run out of time before starting 2009 and the others! ** classic 60’s pop group that-time-forgot lead off the chart-toppers, tempted to enter that into a song competition just to get it heard! ** childhood fave Elusive Butterfly gives Irish crooner Val a chart-topper, and finally Sharleen Spiteri’s best solo track (off her album) ends the year off. Which means not a single new single topped my chart this month (helped by me being on holiday for 2 weeks abroad in the Canaries)! No videos, as it’s too recent and you all know them, but closest to the top were Katy Perry’s fab Hot n Cold, Gabriella Cilmi’s minor xmas classic, and the Killers Human. There’s even Miley Cyrus getting a Top 10 hit, something she’s not done in 2013 at all! Gasp!
