My 1995 Charts – August

6th August 1995

So what was happening in my charts in the summer of 95? 2 weeks on top, the Deuce you say! On The Bible I will swear! That leaves a nice top 10 climb for the AIDS lament classic, Waterfalls, almost as sad and beautiful as the Boy George Il Adore. Marc Almond gets a second top 10 solo in a row as he was a bit of an Idol, Soul II Soul have Love Enuff to go top 10 as well, a nice groove, but not one I actually recalled until I Youtubed it. Oops!

Julian Cope Try tries again and is rewarded with a huge leap to 13, 14 years after the mighty Teardrop Explodes Reward debuted, Michael Jackson’s R. Kelly song also rockets to 15, though these days I’m not fussed about You Are Not Alone. Highest new entry? You Oughta Know! Yes, that bitterly angry woman-scorned classic from that classic album Jagged Little Pill, and Alanis Morissette arrives with a bang at 20.

Not far behind, the tender bluegrass cover of Baby Now That I’ve Found, The Foundations 1967 classic, enters at 22 and a debut for Alison Krauss who made me love Country Music again after falling out with it during the country-rock years dominated by Garth Brooks. She’s back in my current charts with 2 covers of a similar style as I type in April 2017, 22 years on.

Michelle Gayle has a big leap, obviously Happy Just To Be With You, at 23, while Suggs’ Beatles cover and Black Grape both go top 40. Blue Monday proves you can never chart enough times as New Order return remixed yet again, The Connells fab 74-75 returns after a week away, and Matt Goss gets a solo new entry, Bros no more.

13th August 1995

What the Deuce! 3 weeks on top, holding off a host of mid-90’s classics from the top spot. Hey ho, it’s a great pop record, honest! Madonna just misses adding to her growing batch of chart-toppers and has to be content with equalling Into The Groove at 2. TLC are up to 3 with their brilliant track, Take That grab a 4th top 5, and Alanis Morissette does what she failed to do in the UK & US charts (I think) and go top 5 almost immediately with that vitriolic masterpiece. Julian Cope has another top 10 14 years after his Teardrop Explodes first, and one-hit wonders The Connells shoot up 42 places to 10 with the nostalgic and lovely 74-75. I was juuuust the right age for the nostalgia-fest at the time, a bit like (for example) someone getting all misty-eyed for the music scene of 96-97 back when they were 16 or 17 years old.

In at 19, highest new entry is a fun track, as Blair explains – NOT Tony I must say with relief. Black Grape shoot up to the top 20, The Levellers rocket into the 30, and there’s something moist at 25. Just Youtubing it, as it’s all a little hazy having not heard it for 22 years. Ahhh, likeable grunge. No, not an oxymoron! Morten harket goes solo from a-ha and gets a very good ballad new into the 40, a decade on from Take On Me, while also new The Shamen, and Ali Campbell sounding uncannily like a UB40 reggae cover hit 15 years after they debuted – it’s not as good as The Pioneers original though.

Danielle Brisboix never made it, sadly, as she was good, in at 43, Utah Saints sneak in with one I’ve forgotten, Ohio, and Ash debut with that Girl From Mars.

20th August 1995

A genuine 90’s social-commentary r’n’b classic gives TLC a number one, deservedly, as Michelle Gayle takes a touch of Eastenders into the top 5. Donna Summer is remixed (again) and is back in at 7, keeping up I Feel Love’s regular appearances in the top 10 each decade – but the 1977 original remains the breath-taking groundbreaking and influential classic. Moist push their way into the 10, and Blur at last take a Country House leap into the 20, leap-frogging Oasis, much as they did in the UK singles chart.

Smokie’s 70’s goodie (Living Next Door To Alice) a Chinn-Chapman song and production (originally for New World in 1972, but also for Smokie in 1976), is massacred by a crude comic, but has enough of the original in it to merit (that may not be the right word) an entry at 30. It’s awful. Stick to the charming original. Prince’s band in at 33, Matt Goss into the 40, The Original enters surprisingly low for a good record, Chaka Khan extends her chart run to 21 years, and Rod Stewart to 24 years, but neither of these tracks rings a bell to me, being as I havent heard them for 20 years.

Squeeze are back in the chart with This Summer, one of their very best singles 17 years into their career (and that also applies to 2016, when they topped my chart finally after 37 years of just missing out). Lloyd Cole is still sneaking in some 11 years on, and CJ Lewis’ surprisingly long run of reggae chart entries for a short period of time (on here at least) is running out of steam with diminishing returns.

27th August 1995

One of those chart-toppers I haven’t heard in years from Michelle Gayle, it was a decent popfunk single but in retrospect most of the rest of the top 10 would have been a better choice, hey ho, that’s what I liked best that week, prob the 70’s vibes had me going all nostalgic. Highest new entry is Simply Red’s best single, by far, the superb Fairground, not least thanks to the backbone sample from Goodmen’s Give It Up, while Blur at last make the top 10 with a Blur song that took a while to grow on me – and not one they rate themselves.

In at 18, and Mariah Carey at her peak at this time, courtesy of a Tom Tom Club-sampling Fantasy, it was pretty much all downhill after this, bar the odd return to a bit of quality. Squeeze have a massive climb into the 20 with the gorgeous This Summer 17 years since they first went top 20 with Take Me I’m Yours, probably still their best record, though this one came close. In at 27, and Diana Ross is back with Take Me Higher, one I’d forgotten, but nice to see Ms Ross still charting some 27 years since she first appeared in my charts (the epic Love Child) and 31 years since I first would have charted her (Baby Love was a childhood fave in ’64).

2 When I Think Of You’s side by side at 31 and 32, Janet J’s remix of her fab 1986 track entering, as The Charlatans pop in, and Hootie & The Blowfish are back with their best track at 50. Yes the whole world went Hootie mad (except the UK) in 1995, and they were paid the ultimate belated “compliment” by featuring around a Friends episode (a concert ticket). Co-incidentally the Friends theme tune is also in at 70. These days Hootie is not a band to throw around if you want 90’s street-cred. Happily I’ve never felt the need to have street-cred, and they were OK – if vastly over-rated in the States.
