Gonna admit I can't be arsed matching the colours with the CD covers this time.
100 SE:SA FT.SHARON PHILLIPS - LIKE THIS LIKE THAT
Reached #63 [December]
This song sounded like Missy Elliott in places, I liked it for the most part, sample came from Dee-Lite's Groove Is In The Heart, have to say I've heard better songs in the same sort of genre though..
99 NEWTON FAULKNER - DREAM CATCH ME
Reached #7 [August]
This was one of those songs I was noticing hovering around the chart for ages without knowing what the hell it was. Meanwhile everyone was having it hammered into them non-stop on the radio. Great little pop song, easily his best, but he's never had much on my radar to be fair!
98 RICHARD FLEESHMAN - COMING DOWN
Reached #78 [December]
From Corrie' Richard Fleeshman won some TV talent show (Soapstar to Popstar?) he was really popular but left it so long to release this single that nobody cared by the time it came. Strike while the iron's hot Ricky boy! Just as good as most male singer-songwriter tracks I thought!
97 MIKA - HAPPY ENDING
Reached #7 [December]
I don't think I was a particular fan of Mika, I did like a few of his songs, but I wasn't one of the many who bought his first album (sadly I was one of the few that bought the second!), however he is one of only 2 acts to appear 3 times in this list. This is the first then, his only real ballad thus far. It gets really nice towards the end.
96 JACK PENATE - TORN ON THE PLATFORM
Reached #7 [July]
Another one where I didn't know what the 'eck it was when it charted. I got into Jack more later on, especially with his single "Be The One", this is such a good introductory track to his fun acoustic style sound though.
