03. Chumbawamba - Tubthumping
04. Aqua - Doctor Jones
05. Puff Daddy & Faith Evans ft. 112 - I’ll Be Missing You
=06. Spice Girls - Wannabe
Aqua - Barbie Girl

A clear exit for Chumbawamba finishing on -6 pts. Tubthumping spent 3 weeks at number 1 in December between aquas two #1’s. It reached number 3 on both the Triple J Hottest 100 and EOY singles chart of 1997.

The next single from their Tubthumper album, ‘Amnesia’ peaked at #34 according to Wikipedia. Tubthumping has been used in several adverts and sporting montages. I also came across this jazzy kinda reworked version by Angus and Julia Stone.

2 songs left for the Final.

Semi final results:
Savage garden 6
No doubt 0
Chumbawamba -6

Both iconic 90s songs, but it has to be Savage Garden for me.
