50. To Be With You- Mr. Big (1992)
UK Peak: No.3

This is the Rock groups' only UK Top 20 hit reaching number three. The song is about a man who has his eye on a woman who has recently experienced a broken heart from a previous relationship. It was a huge number one hit around the World including the bands’ native USA.

Image
49. Scream- Michael & Janet Jackson (1995)
UK Peak: No.3

The video for this epic track is the most expensive music video ever made and won the "Best Music Video (Short Form)" award at the 1996 Grammy Awards. It was the lead single along with "Childhood" from Michaels' "HIStory" album and debuted and peaked at number five on the US Hot 100, a first in the charts' 37-year history. It also debuted and peaked in the UK at number three.

Image
48. Little Bird- Annie Lennox (1993)
UK Peak: No.3

This was released as a double A-side single along with "Love Song For A Vampire" (See number 71). The music video features several Lennox lookalikes dressed as different personas that Annie has used in her videos (both solo and as part of Eurythmics) as they perform with Lennox in a Cabaret-esque setting. Lennox was in the late stages of pregnancy with her second daughter Tali during the filming of the video.

47. Stay (I Missed You)- Lisa Loeb & Nine Stories (1994)
UK Peak: No.6

This was Lisas' first and only major hit, she had two other Top 20 hits in the US. She was discovered by her friend Ethan Hawke who asked Ben Stiller to feature the song in their film "Reality Bites" he agreed and it helped the song reach number one on the US Hot 100, earning her the distinction of being the only artist to top the chart before being signed to any record label. She won the "International Breakthrough" award at the 1995 BRIT Awards but failed to have another UK Top 40 hit.

Image
46. I Have Nothing- Whitney Houston (1993)
UK Peak: No.3

This was the third release from "The Bodyguard" Soundtrack and reached the Top 5 in both the UK and US, all five of "The Bodyguard" singles made the UK Top 20. It has since become a popular choice of song for many reality TV talent shows such as "American Idol" and "The X Factor" and in my opinion is far better than "I Will Always Love You".

45. Say You'll Be There- Spice Girls (1996)
UK Peak: No.1

This was the girls' second release and second chart topper, in the US it became their second most-successful hit peaking at number three on the Hot 100. The music video was inspired by the films "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" and "Pulp Fiction". The high anticipation for the girls' second single assured its commercial success, a week before its release it was reported that the it had already had advanced sales of over 330,000 copies, the highest Virgin Records had ever recorded for a single. It is the UKs' 26th biggest-selling single of the 90s.

Image
44. Girlfriend- Billie (1998)
UK Peak: No.1

This was Billies' second release and second to go straight in at number one, she was the youngest ever artist to debut at number one on the UK Chart. Now she is best known for starring in the TV Shows "Doctor Who" and "Secret Diary Of A Call Girl".

43. So Young- The Corrs
UK Peak: No.6

This became the Irish groups' third Top 10 hit in the UK but had to settle for a peak of number 29 in Ireland. The band initially had to fight with their label to include the song on their "Talk On Corners" album, a decision vindicated by its popularity.

Image
42. What Is Love?- Haddaway (1993)
UK Peak: No.2

This became a Worldwide smash for Haddaway back in '93 reaching the top spot in thirteen countries as well as reaching number 11 on the US Hot 100. It is the 62nd best-selling single of all time in Germany. Haddaway went on to have four other Top 20 hits in the UK and appeared on "Hit Me baby One More Time" in 2005 where he sang this track as well as Britney Spears' "Toxic", he lost out on a place in the final to Shakin’ Stevens, who eventually won the show.

Image
41. Blue (Da Ba Dee)- Eiffel 65 (1999)
UK Peak: No.1

This was an absolute global smash reaching number one in many countries as well as peaking at number six on the US Hot 100. In 2009 Flo Rida sampled the track on his UK Top 20 hit "Sugar". It's easy to forget that the Italian dance band had another hit with "Move Your Body" which reached number three in the UK the following year. This track is the UKs' 22nd biggest-selling single of the decade.

40. Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)- Backstreet Boys (1997)
UK Peak: No.3

This was the boys' sixth UK Top 20 hit (all but one had gone Top 10) and is regarded as one of their signature tunes. The video won the "Best Group Video" at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards which saw Brian as a werewolf, Howie as a vampire, Nick as a mummy, AJ as Erik (The Phantom of the Opera) and Kevin as Two-Face (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde).

Image39. Set You Free- N-Trance (1995)
UK Peak: No.2

It was third time lucky for this track as it had been released twice before it became a hit. In 1993 it reached number 83, the following year number 39 and in 1995 it became a number two smash, kept off the top spot by Celine Dions' mega hit "Think Twice". It became a hit again in 2001 when a remix reached number four on the UK Singles Chart. It is regarded as one of the essential dance tracks of the 90s.

Image
38. Two Princes- Spin Doctors (1993)
UK Peak: No.3

This was the American alternative rock bands' only Top 20 hit in the UK and their second and last in the US where it became their biggest hit peaking at number seven. The band even appeared on "Sesame Street" and sang a modified version of the song that emphasised the importance of sharing.

37. Sunchyme- Dario G (1997)
UK Peak: No.2

This is the dance groups' biggest hit just missing out on topping the UK Chart to Elton Johns' "Candle In The Wind". It samples "Life In A Northern Town" by The Dream Academy and is used a lot for Sport events.

Image
36. A Whole New World- Peabo Bryson & Regina Belle (1993)
UK Peak: No.12

This is the theme tune to Disneys' "Aladdin" and won the "Best Original Song" award at the 1993 Academy Awards. It could only manage a modest peak of number 12 in the UK but it did however became a number one hit in the US where it was responsible for knocking Whitney Houstons' "I Will Always Love You" off the top spot after 13 weeks.

35. I’ll Be There For You- The Rembrandts (1995)
UK Peak: No.3

This is the theme tune to the sitcom that defined the 90s, "Friends". It was a hit twice in the UK upon its original release in 1995 it peaked at number three and number five when it was re-released in 1997. The releasing of the theme as a single came about when the original theme which is under one minute long started to receive airplay on a popular American Radio Station where the DJ looped the original short version into a full-length track and broadcasted it, it became so popular that the band were forced to record a full-length version by their record company. It is the UKs' 82nd biggest-selling single of the decade.

Image
34. Rollercoaster- B*Witched (1998)
UK Peak: No.1

B*Witcheds' debut single "C'est La Vie" went straight in at number one on the UK Chart making them the youngest girl group to do so, their first four singles all entered at number one, "Rollercoaster" being the second, also making them the only girl group to do so. The group filmed two videos for the track one of which was for its US release but the single could only reach number 67 on the Hot 100 making them one-hit wonders with their debut single which peaked at number nine there.

Image
33. Kiss From A Rose- Seal (1995)
UK Peak: No.4

This track was originally released in the UK in 1994 and made a modest peak of number 20, the following year it was used for the "Batman Forever" soundtrack and subsequently re-released making a new peak of number four and also hit the top spot on the US Hot 100. It won both the "Record of The Year" and "Song of The Year" awards at the 1996 Grammy Awards as well as the "Best Male Pop Vocal Performance" award for Seal.

Image
32. Diamonds & Pearls- Prince (1991)
UK Peak: No.25

Scarily both my favourite song by Prince from the 80s ("Raspberry Beret") and this from the 90s peaked at number 25 on the UK Chart. How this track and "Raspberry Beret" for that matter didn't make the UK Top 10 is a mystery they are his best work in my opinion. This track made a more respectable peak in the US where it reached number three on the Hot 100, it was also responsible for introducing us to the incredible vocal talent of Rosie Gaines who went on to have a Top 5 hit with "Closer Than Close" in 1995.

Image
31. Sleeping Satellite- Tasmin Archer (1992)
UK Peak: No.1

Tasmin is considered a one-hit wonder despite having another Top 20 hit, "Sleeping Satellite" was a number one hit in the UK and made the US Top 40 reaching number 32. Tasmin won the 1993 BRIT Award for "Best British Breakthrough" but later joked that she uses it for cracking nuts and tenderising steak.
