        Macarena :(
        I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?

              Yes, interesting result!

              Also, surprisingly neither 'Wannabe' nor 'Macarena' have ever won a survivor before.

                      Metallica should already be out. Everything else is solid.

                        ARIA #1 Singles of 1996



                        Well some of you got the the result you want, what you really really want, and in a surprising round two of the biggest songs of the year, Macarena shimmied its way out as well as Wannabe doing a Zig-a-zig-ah outta there. Wannabe will return however as part of 1997's list.

                        Macarena followed Celine Dion's run at the top in August for a 9 week run, with the wildly popular bayside boys remix and dance craze that ensued. The Los Del Mar version of the song also peaked at #2 according to wikipedia. #1 position was then handed to The Spice Girls in November, launching onto the scene for an impressive 11 week run into 1997 (9 of those in 1996), where it was replaced by Savage Garden's To The Moon and Back in January 1997.

                        According to wikipedia It remains to date the group's only ARIA #1 single, several of their subsequent songs did reach top 5. The Album Spice peaked at #3, It wasn't until the release of the Greatest Hits album in 2007 that the Spice Girls posted their first #1 on the ARIA Albums chart. Their other two studio albums both went top 10.
