249 singles peaked at number 2 in the UK and/or the US between January 1990 and December 1999. I excluded songs that reached number 2 in the UK but number 1 in the US and vice versa because we already voted for these songs on biscuits' "UK/US #1s of the 90's" countdown.

So many incredible classics are on that list! Making my list will be easy.
