Popular ’95

Popular85 comments • 4,693 views

Year poll time! I give every No.1 a mark out of 10. In this poll, you can tick any that you would give 6 or more to. My highest marks this year went to Livin’ Joy and Coolio, my lowest to Robson And Jerome.

Which of these 1995 Number Ones would you give 6 or more to?

    A relatively compact list. These polls are going to get very long in the not too distant future.

    re Pulp – I’m with them on that – though I always thought CP worked best with the last verse which was excised from the single

  4. 4
    Brendan F on 2 Aug 2013 #

    I also thought Mansize Rooster was Supergrass’ best song and far superior to Alright

  5. 5
    Izzy on 2 Aug 2013 #

    The NME no.1 is a surprise. It’s a good record and not outside their frame of reference exactly, but it’s a strange choice for their annus mirabilis. Although seeing The Connells’ ’74-’75 in there is possibly even more surprising – who exactly at the NME was lionising that in 1995?!

  6. 6
    Brendan F on 2 Aug 2013 #

    and Yes was far and away the best song of the year

    Cumbrian on 2 Aug 2013 #

    I’m fully with the NME on Reverend Black Grape, at least versus the other Britpop stuff. The list I reckon is a good indicator of just how inward looking the NME was at that time – very few tunes from beyond these isles.

    If Radiohead really produced Lucky in 24 hours (I assume they had it written and ready to go before entering the Help sessions), that’s pretty scary. Given that they seem to send an age on each record nowadays, they should perhaps work on a less is more philosophy.

    I don’t much care for Wonderwall, but the NME list proves it was a marvellous year in so many ways. Singles, albums, weather.. the peak of Britpop before it disappeared up its own “ironic” Admiral 1982 England replica top.. (though tinged with great sadness amidst the disappearance of one of my favourite lyricists of all time from, well, Bunnied Welsh Band (the great one.))

    .. and some number ones, apart from the 7-8-9 TT/Oasis/Livin’ Joy run, were.. alright, or downright terrible.

    Along with Gangsta’s Paradise the only ones that hit 7 or higher. Earth Song and Fairground have enough ideas and execution to toe-poke a 6, as well as Country House. Was thinking of picking Cotton Eye Joe – it is freakin’ hilarious, but given it’s celebrated by the people who can only revive the nineties by posting Facebook memes like this, it can sling its hook.

    http://www.sickchirpse.com/fake-nostalgia/

    (Don’t you think the Blur and Rednex videos are very similar in tone though, in a “Carry on Hillbilly” way? It was strange to see such an aloof band as Blur having so much unapologetic, lowbrow fun – then again, they combined cartoon antics for the kids with adult introspection more than any British band since Madness. Is this a good or a bad thing? Er, you decide.)

    5 – I guess it’s because it’s potentially the best song of the summer (Buddy Holly and Girl from Mars were wonderful, but spent a bit too long at the cheese counter), and the best thing REM never wrote – many consider the following year’s New Adventures in Hi-Fi as their last great (and interesting) album. In August 1996 something as screwed up and defiantly non-Shiny Happy People as E-Bow The Letter got to #4! The “now and then” high school yearbook video to 74-75 is quite something – tearjerking, even.

    Hmm, it seems that whenever I vote on these, there are never any 100% songs (as per now), and usually there are no 0% ones (however, there are three right now)

    Izzy on 2 Aug 2013 #

    TLC’s Creep is the actual best single of 1995 I reckon – but it seems to miss out on end-of-year acclaim because it came out in the US the year before (though not hitting big until 1995).

    As for lists, The Face always had the best ones; their 1995 one is notable for how much across-the-board consensus there is, it’s like a handy blend of the NME and Muzik ones:

    1. Method Man / Mary J Bilge -You’re All I Need to Get By
    2. Pulp – Common People
    3. Oasis – Wonderwall
    4. Coolio – Gangster’s Paradise
    5. Supergrass – Alright
    6. Bucketheads -The Bomb (These Sounds Fall into My Mind)
    7. Everything But The Girl – Missing (Remix)
    8. Goldie – Inner City Life (rerelease)
    9. Oasis – Some Might Say
    10. Tricky – Black Steel
    11. Massive Attack – Karmacoma
    12. Bjork – Isobel
    13. Stone Roses – Ten Storey Love Song
    14. Black Grape – Reverand Black Grape
    15. Alex Reece – Pulp Fiction
    16. Pulp- Mis-Shapes / Sorted For Es and Wizz
    17. Elastica – Waking Up
    18. Tricky – Hell is Around The Corner
    19. Alex Reece – Feel the Sunshine / Jazzmaster
    20. Edwyn Collins – A Girl Like You (rerelase)
    21. DeLacy – Hideaway
    22. A Guy Called Gerald – Finlay’s Rainbow
    23. Josh Wink – Higher State of Consciousness
    24. The Verve – History
    25. Mary J Blige – I’m Goin’ Down
    26. D’Angelo – Brown Sugar
    27. Ash – Girl From Mars
    28. Method Man – Release Yo’ Delf
    29. Chemical Brothers – Leave Home
    30. Chemical Brothers / Tim Burgess – Life is Sweet
    31. Billie Ray Martin – Your Loving Arms
    32. Portishead – Glory Box
    33. TLC – Waterfalls
    34. Rob D – Clubbed To Death
    35. Blur – Country House
    36. Massive Attack – Protection
    37. DJ Crystl – Perpetual Motion
    38. Wildchild – Renegrade Master (Legends Of The Dark Black Pt II)
    39. Grace – Not Over Yet
    40. Take That – Back For Good
    41. McAlmont And Butler – Yes
    42. Mobb Deep – Shook Ones Pt II
    43. Notorious BIG – One More Chance
    44. Radiohead – Fake Plastic Trees
    45. DJ Shadow – What Does Your Soul Look Like
    46. Monica – Don’t Take It Personal
    47. Nick Cave / Kylie Minogue – Where The Wild Roses Grow
    48. Daft Punk – Da Funk
    49. Michelle Gayle – Happy Just To Be With You
    50. Garbage – Queer

    Note in particular no.48, making their debut two years ahead of schedule.

    28. A Girl Like You – Edwin Collins

    30. In The Name Of The Father – Black Grape
    31. Cf Kane – Delicatessen
    32. Ten Story Love Song – The Stone Roses
    33. I’ll Be There For You – Method Man/Mary J Blige
    34. We Don’t Need Nobody Else – Whipping Boy
    35. Horny Mutant Jazz – T Power & Mk Ultra
    36. History – The Verve
    37. Her Name – Telstar Ponies
    38. Mr Boombastic – Shaggy
    39. Inbetweener – Sleeper
    40. Jullander Shere – Cornershop
    41. Inner City Life – Goldie
    42. Vow – Garbage
    43. Freestyle Ep – Kushti
    44. Back For Good – Take That
    45. Disco 200 – Pulp
    46. Now They’ll Sleep – Belly
    47. Alright – Cast
    48. Queer – Garbage
    49. Happy When It Rains – Garbage
    50. Superplus – Quickspace Supersport

    They’re going all in for Britpop at the top, some more interesting choices lower down. Same with Select, actually. Select and MM had Different Class as #1 album, the NME chose Tricky’s Maxinquaye (and put Pulp at #7)

    With end of year album/single lists on big publications there’s always a certain amount of horse-trading, factionalism, and so on – plus a bias towards recency, etc. “Reverend Black Grape” doesn’t seem like a very likely unity candidate though.

    Steve Mannion on 2 Aug 2013 #

    I think ‘Da Funk’ was on most of the dance mag lists (and ‘Alive’ made a few the previous year too) but I’d failed to notice the track until its official single release another year later. Shame that the original version of Underworld’s ‘Born Slippy’ didn’t do too well either despite being such a glorious banger in its own right.

    Rory on 2 Aug 2013 #

    Five for me – “Back for Good”, “Some Might Say”, “Country House”, “Gangsta’s Paradise” and “Earth Song”. Gave “Dreamer” and “Boombastic” another listen to see if I’d nudge either of them up from 5 to 6, but not today.

    Meanwhile, I gave twos to Cher et al., Robson & Jerome twice and The Outhere Brothers twice, which might be a personal record for a Popular year; all five have made the FT readers’ bottom 100, too. (I’m saving my ones for something even more awful. Not sure what yet, but I’ll know it when I hear it.)

    The Dreadzone entries above have got me reacquainting with “Second Light”. Great album.

    Cumbrian on 2 Aug 2013 #

    Moderately surprised that The Bluetones have turned up in a number of these lists. I mean I liked Expecting To Fly and thought that they were OK in general but I wouldn’t have put them at more than that.

    To Bring You My Love was/is great.

  18. 18
    swanstep on 2 Aug 2013 #

    Grading generously, 7 for me this year; a 700% improvement over 1994! Not a year for the ages at the level of #1s, rather just kind of what one would hope for every year.

  19. 19
    Izzy on 2 Aug 2013 #

    That Peel list is miserable stuff – a few highly-approved long-servers getting half their output in; some lesser-approved long-servers with a song each; some proto-landfill indie; a ton of lo-fi; a bit of dance, but very much not-fun dance; and very little that was actually popular.

  20. 20
    Tom on 2 Aug 2013 #

    FIVE DREADZONE RECORDS*. This was in fact the last time I listened to the Festive 50 (though I tuned into Peel’s show occasionally until he died.)

    *not that Dreadzone were particularly terrible – though I wasn’t a fan – but they epitomised how the F50 was becoming just Peel’s audience gatekeeping a list of approved bands from within the already fairly quirky confines of the man’s own tastes.

  21. 21
    weej on 2 Aug 2013 #

    Five ticks and none of them higer than a 7. That’s not a fantastic year.

    Some great stuff hidden away in the lists though – Da Funk, Sick & Tired, Mansize Rooster, Plastic Bag (sure nobody will agree with this one), Plug Myself In, Superplus, Down By The Water, Little Britain, Afro Left…

  22. 22
    Steve Mannion on 2 Aug 2013 #

    Crazy amount of Dreadzone on that F50 (I’ll still endorse ‘House Of Dread’ tho) – somewhat at the expense of Rockers Hi Fi, Sons Of Silence, Pressure Drop and others making similar stuff. Maybe the multiball action came from a particularly strong Peel Session tho (I can imagine them being a more compelling live act at that point).

    Number 30 makes me think Phoenix should record a track called ‘Bonkers In The Fall’ (or indeed ‘Conkers…’).

    Hmm – – clicked the link from Facebook to find somehow that it had voted for me! Happy to have voted for Coolio and Shaggy but I would shifted these ‘votes’ from “Back For Good” and “Earth Song” to “Country House” and “Some Might Say.” Oh well…

    Sophie B Hawkins – As I Lay Me Down (or indeed other of her singles/album tracks) : notably missing from all those lists….

    (Quite the most boringly insular Peel Festive 50 list I’ve seen, too…)

  27. 27
    swanstep on 3 Aug 2013 #

    #19,20,26. Four The Fall tracks and two other Mark E. Smith collaborations. It’s hard to believe that the Festive 50 *isn’t* a single person’s list.

    Here’s the Billboard list of number ones, with a brief comment on each:

    On Bended Knee – Boyz II Men
    – Carryover from 1994. Typical Boyz II Men ballad for the period (ie kinda dull)

    Creep – TLC
    – I never liked TLC much, and this song didn’t change that.

    Take A Bow – Madonna
    – Trivia fact: At 7 weeks, this is her longest run at US#1. Of course, this stat is warped by comparing Pre-Soundscan hits vs. the Soundscan era. Certainly many of her best 80’s songs would have had long runs at #1 under Soundscan rules. Take A Bow by contrast was relatively forgettable.

    This Is How We Do It – Montell Jordan
    – The number one the week I graduated from college (or University as you would say in the UK). I can’t say I liked it much, but at least it was better than the corresponding UK#1 at the time.

    Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman? – Bryan Adams
    – His 4th and final US#1. From a movie (of course). Noteworthy how different this sounded from any thing else on the charts at the time.

    Waterfalls – TLC
    – Again, not a TLC fan, but this was one of their better singles.

    Kiss From A Rose – Seal
    – A late bloomer thanks to Batman. Weird to think Seal’s had a US#1 but never a UK#1 under his own name.

    You Are Not Alone – Michael Jackson
    – First single to debut at #1. Already discussed.

    Gangsta’s Paradise – Coolio
    – Billboard’s #1 single of 1995, despite a modest 3 weeks on top. Already discussed.

    Fantasy – Mariah Carey
    – Second single to debut at #1. I have a tendency to get this mixed up with Dreamlover, Heartbreaker, and really almost any other upbeat song recorded by her.

    Exhale – Whitney Houston
    – Third single to debut at #1 (sensing a pattern?). I can’t say I was a fan of what was her final #1. After a week of #1 glory, it proceeded to spend a record 11 weeks at #2 behind….

    One Sweet Day – Mariah & Boyz II Men
    – Yep, that one. The Hot 100’s biggest stars of the time team up and predictably debut at #1 and spend a record 16 weeks there. I know you guys don’t care your own 16-weeker that much, but at least it was better than this.

    Overall, not a good list, unless you were heavily into R&B. If you drop Robson & Jerome, I prefer the UK one – I actually voted for 7 songs (and I admit to being the lone vote for LCBAB ;)).

    One final note: The lack of single releases for certain big hits was becoming a major factor on the Hot 100 around this time. “I’ll Be There For You” by the Rembrandts could’ve hit #1 on airplay alone at its peak with just a single copy on sale. This would become an even bigger problem over the next three years until Billboard finally caved and allowed non-singles on its flagship chart.

    Alan @ 25 – thanks! That did it. I suppose someone else at my university must be a reader!

    Okay, here’s the run-down of Australian number ones from 1995, with comments from my extremely well-informed pop brain.

    Real McCoy – “Another Night” – 6 weeks
    Erm, can’t remember this one at all.

    Hocus Pocus – “Here’s Johnny!” – 6 weeks
    Nope, you’ve got me there.

    Take That – “Back for Good” – 2 weeks
    Hey, I hadn’t realised the That had an Oz number one. And it’s a good one.

    Merril Bainbridge – “Mouth” – 6 weeks
    Vaguely remember it existing, can’t remember how it goes.

    Bryan Adams – “Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?” – 1 week
    Oh for God’s sake. (I once wrote a limerick on Bryan Adams, wanna read it?)

    U2 – “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” – 6 weeks
    Oh yes. Top tune.

    Jann Arden – “Insensitive” – 1 week
    Uh, don’t remember this either.

    Seal – “Kiss from a Rose” – 6 weeks
    Hope your tetanus jabs are up to date, Seal.

    Mariah Carey – “Fantasy” – 1 week
    Not mine, Mariah.

    N-Trance – “Stayin’ Alive” – 1 week
    N-necessary.

    Coolio – “Gangsta’s Paradise” – 11 weeks in 1995, 2 weeks in 1996.
    Cool.
