  • [Survivor] Huns of the Noughties - Finished



    No, it's not a survivor about our very own hun, but of all of the other iconic huns who provided us with some of the best (and worst) music during the hunniest decade of all - the Noughties.

    "What is a hun?" I hear you ask! Well, the first thing to note is that 'hun culture' is pretty British, but extends itself to other cultures - so due to this only non-American acts will compete in this survivor. Another qualifier is that the overwhelming majority of huns are girlies, so only female acts have a place here.

    Being a hun is almost like having the X Factor... it's a bit intangible and just something you can't quite put your finger on, but you just know that popstar is a hun in some way. It might be the way they dress or dance, the beverages they drink, the brands they promote, how much the gays adore them or just being tragically basic and ordinary.

    Hun culture is getting excited for your "holibobs", watching Ru Paul's Drag Race with a gin in a giant goblet from 'B&M Bargains', knowing every Gemma Collins meme inside out, being obsessed with Kat Slater saying she's a "total slag" and getting ready to a playlist that probably contains a lot of the songs below!

    Check out @hunsnet and @loveofhuns on instagram for more hun-derstanding.

      Why does some huns have more songs than others?

      We definitely need ‘Elephant’ by Alexandra Burke. She introduced ‘elephant in the room’ to the U.K.

              The bigger the discography in that decade, the more entries they get. Anything not quite hunny enough hasn't been included.

                Is Mel B a hun? I’d say she has hun qualities. Tell Me, Feels So Good and Today are quite hunny.

                Beverley Knight feels like a hun too.

                      No Adele here, her songs are just not indicative of her sometimes-hun nature.

                    The survivor might be more Brit than I can handle as I still don't know what a hun is.

                      Mel B I can add. Bev Knight I’ll think about.

                        I think she’s on the border, I might include her!

                          You need a bit Liberty X, Steps, S Club, Hear’Say and Vengaboys in any Hun playlist? As if the men count. Any song that starts with the word Sexy is hundamental.

                          You can’t pick The Show over Biology for Girls Aloud, it’s literally peak hundom. Vicky B’s Let Your Head Go was her biggest hun moment, as was Sporty’s I Turn To You.

                          Nelly Furtado’s Maneater, Shakira’s Hips and She Wolf and RiRi’s SOS, Umbrella and Don’t Stop The Music were all noughties Lambrini moments.

                          Very please the BB huns are represented and Nadia’s A Little Bit Of Action is in there

                          No Kylie?
                          I have a bad feeling about this.

                            No global stars like Rihanna, Kylie, Nelly F. and Shakira pls.

                            ‘Just a Little’ is one of the ultimate hun songs.

                              Maybe I could be tempted to put mixed groups in there if there’s demand. I’ve just spotted Dane Bowers has snuck in.

                              I need to add Chanelle Hayes.

                              Kylie’s a bit too big for this and she’s not as hun as Dannii.

                                  You could replace it with the sexy ‘This Groove’. I bought a wig this year with the sole intention of recreating that video

                                      Iconic songs all around, they should all immediately go through to SoS.
