My 1999 Charts – June

JUNE 1999 charts

Shania Twain is the singer of the moment, continuing on top, even though it don’t impress her much. It don’t impress The Osmonds either who are kept off the top with the re-issue of Crazy Horses, doing much better than it did in 1972. The Backstreet Boys prove that Florida hit-machine keeps on a rolling out the choons, with the fab I Want It That Way grabbing a week on top before Bill Withers classic non-hit Ain’t No Sunshine finally repeats what Michael Jackson did, also in 1972 – taking it to the top. He also had a number one in 1972 with the even-more-classic Lean On Me. Bill is great. The last number one is a return to the top for Petula Clark, and the original classic version of Downtown, muuuuuch better than the 80’s dance remix I’d previously had to make do with.

Also doing well, Shed Seven at 5, Jamiroquai at 5, Ricky Martin at 7, and the Backstreet Boys pals N’Sync at 6. Suede’s Fashion-tastic single goes top 10, and Whitney Houston does something she’s never done before – got into the top 2 with the fab My Love Is Your Love, proper soul, real emotion as opposed to OTT blandness. Pity she was already into the drugs by then…

New into the chart in the last two weeks of June? Adam Rickett at 6. Eh???! Shorley shome mishtake! Nah, it was a decent dance toon. 1974 UK chart-topper She never really impressed me much at the time – but the Elvis Costello cover version for Notting Hill, oh yes indeedy, at 9, beating off even the Pet Shop Boys new single, trying to outdo even their own long-titled hits (they tend to go for one-word titles or very long ones!). Billy Fury’s great A Wondrous Place pops in along with Dixie Chicks and the ever-present Roxette – it’s been an eye-opener reviewing my old charts and seeing how often Roxette are in the upper reaches!

Finally, I’m amused to see Hole, Cartoons, Chemical Brothers and Nas all vying for places in the lower end. I do enjoy a mix of moods and genres….

  1. Hi John!
    Hope you’re fine, Now looking back to 1999 charts they do not look that bad at all. I was fed up with Shania Twain that year. She was here there and everywhere. “Pumping on a Stereo”, “You Get What You Give” and “She’s In Fashion” were my favorites at the time and they still are. And “Crazy Horses” is my fave Osmonds track, since I first heard it (in 1988)…

    • Hi Andrey good to hear from you hope all is well. I’m in Spain for a few days at the moment, listening to lots of Kylie or watching football in bars! New Radicals and Suede were classics, good choices, Supergrass was great too. Shania Twain, yes she overdid everything so much that I choose not listen to anything she did these days, not even That Don’t Impress Me Much. The Osmonds are touring again (well, 2 of them plus Jimmy) but I still have never caught them for one reason or another. Cheers!
      john
