  • The Ultimate 1990s Survivor: COMPLETE

    I’m about to embark on my biggest survivor yet - anybody who knows me, knows how obsessed and nostalgic I am about the 90s, so I decided to run the ultimate 1990s survivor to find UKMIX’s favourite song of the decade.

    So what am I going to include?
    • Every UK top 10 hit from the beginning of 1990 to the end of 1999.[/*:m:1sdiixyg]
    • However, any songs that were hits in the 90s that had already been a hit in a previous year (e.g. Bohemian Rhapsody) won’t be included. [/*:m:1sdiixyg]
    • A song that precedes the decade but WASN’T a hit previously (e.g. I Just Want To Make Love To You) will be included. [/*:m:1sdiixyg]
    • Covers and significant remixes (e.g. the Rollo & Sister Bliss mix of I Feel Love) are also included.[/*:m:1sdiixyg]
    • A selection of songs from outside of the top 10 will be chosen by you.[/*:m:1sdiixyg]

    The final list of songs exceeds 1500, so the initial rounds will be split into groups of as close to 25 as possible and I will ask you to save 10 from each group. The songs with the most votes will go through automatically to the next stage, those that don’t make it through may have another chance to do so as a wildcard later on. Then, we will have a final list to work through after the initial group stages.

    Your first job is to nominate up to 10 songs of your choice that charted between 11 numbers and 75 in the 90s. Once a song has been nominated, don’t choose it again as it will automatically be included.

    This game won't begin until 10th August, when I'm back from my holiday, so get nominating!

    Wow, this sounds awesome! Looking forward to it.

    I'll have to have a think and check some chart placings.

      This website is a good source for checking chart placings.

            Okay - this was really tough - I've narrowed down from list of 50 songs. One or two I missed off rather assuming "someone else will vote for this for sure" - glad to know that has already happened with "Losing My Religion"!

            Connells - 74-75
            Fools Garden - Lemon Tree
            Bluetones - If
            Travis - Tied To The 90s

            If anyone needs suggestions for other songs to nominate then my also rans are:

              Ah, I knew I could count on Matthew to include some of the ones I wasn't able to fit in my choice of 10. Also thanks to Benny for including The Show Must Go On, as originally I had that in my 10, so it's now allowed me to add in Kenickie instead

              My 10 are...
              Catatonia - Strange Glue
              Pulp - Do You Remember The First Time?
              Space - Female Of The Species
              The Divine Comedy - Generation Sex
              The Bluetones - Bluetonic
              Mansun - Wide Open Space
              Alanis Morissette - You Oughta Know
              Blur - Coffee & TV
              The Wannadies - You & Me Song
              Kenickie - Punka

                                  I hope i've not repeated any of these. Gotta get the obvious ones out of the way first. The rest are all classic songs imo.

                                  Kylie Minogue - Put yourself in my place
                                  Kylie Minogue - Did it again
                                  Kylie Minogue - Breathe
                                  Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue - Where the wild roses grow
                                  George Michael - Freedom '90
                                  Elton John - Can you feel the love tonight?
                                  Elton John - Circle of life
                                  Paul McCartney - Hope of deliverance
                                  Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under the bridge
                                  The Cardigans - My favourite game

                                        Good to see "Circle of Life" and "Spending My Time" getting nominations Couldn't quite fit either my votes. I also left out a couple of songs from my votes because it was blindingly obvious they'd get votes from other people. Rather "ironically", one of them currently still hasn't had any nominations!
