    COUNTDOWN - UK/US #2s of the 90s



    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.
    You can search the entire universe and not find a single being more worthy of love than you.

    Mines in, that was a bit hodge podge, but I'm pretty happy with my final line up from several extractions removed from the original list. Should be interesting.
