November 1999 Charts

The gorgeous When We Are Together gives Texas an 8th Number One in 3 years, bit of a roll they were one! Backstreet Boys pop back on top, though, to total 3 weeks at the summit before a millennium reissue of John Lennon’s classic singles bundled enters at 1: Happy Xmas War Is Over, Imagine, Give Peace A Chance had already hit the top spot in multiple years, but originally 1972, 1980, and 1969 respectively. Happy Xmas War Is Over holds the record for the largest number of years that it held the top spot in for at least one week, that’s several in the 70’s, the 80’s, the 90’s to date.

Of course as everyone prepared for the end of the century apocalypse as all computers crashed and burned unable to cope with a calendar change, it was an opportunity to re-release lots of oldies, and for big acts to avoid bunging anything new out. At least anything of much quality. Happily old-timers the Lightning Seeds had the terrific Life’s Too Short in my top 5, the wonderfullt cheery Steal My Sunshine gave Len 5 minutes of fame, and Garbage had a Bond Theme delight as The World Is Not Enough gives them a Top 3 largely-forgotten addition to their list of great singles.

Smooth bounces back again into my top 10, Culture Club have a great ballad out – Cold Shoulder – featuring a good version of Bowie’s Starman on the B side, for a 17-year run of big hits (well, for George at any rate). Finally, a new entry at 20 for an obscure classic, Your Lies, from Shelby Lynn, a Phil Spector-styled passionate and vitriolic masterpiece from one of the great unknown and critically-acclaimed albums, I Am Shelby Lynn, an album that rewards repeat listens and taken as a whole, a journey through personal drama and the blues, country, pop. Sadly the original video is not on you tube, it was effective, but the one that is is still pretty powerful in it’s simplicity.
