I remember 1995 as a year of Supergrass, The Bluetones, Pulp, Radiohead, Oasis and Blur. Watching every number one of that year on music telly made me think again. Robson and Jerome, topped the charts twice. As did the Outhere Brothers. As did two of Michael Jackson’s weakest songs – You Are Not Alone, Earth Song – and the terminally wet Fairground by Simply Red. Bleugh!
My top three number ones of the year are:
1. Gangtsa’s Paradise – Coolio feat LV
2. Some Might Say – Oasis
3. Back For Good – Take That
Farewell rose-tinted specs, the past was suckier than I remember. Fact.
