    Hello and welcome back to the Australian Charts number ones survivor series. It's been a while since last October, we crowned No Doubt's Don't Speak the winner of the 1997 list. This time we look at an interesting bunch of songs, 19 that topped the chart in 1991. Returning from 1992's list we have MJ's Black or White. We also have the first instance so far of an EP reaching #1. In this case the Tingles EP by Ratcat will be represented by the song which promoted the EP - 'That Ain't Bad'.

    We have another few movie tracks, in this case Unchained Melody being re-released on the back of appearing in Ghost, and the Grease songs being re-released as a Megamix. Bryan Adams released the longest consecutive runner as well as the EOY #1 in Everything I Do... which was featured in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

    As custom for the past few editions, the Aussies are safe first round, Including Two songs by Ratcat, Daryl Braithwaite, Olivia Newton John (+John Travolta by extension), Divinyls and Melissa Tkautz.

    So Without further ado:
    1991 Wiki Lists

    ARIA #1 Singles of 1991





    18. Big Audio Dynamite II - Rush
    19. Dimples D. - Sucker DJ (A Witch for Love)

    Dimples D. received no saves and is the first out on 0 followed by BAD II on 1 point, as the Aussies who also received 1 pt only were safe first round anyway.

    As far as the wikipedia entry goes, Dimples D.'s track was originally released in 1983 then was later reworked and re-released as a remix (set to a sample of the theme song to I Dream Of Jeannie) shot the song to #1 nearly a decade later. Bit similar to the later effect with Omi - Cheerleader from the 2015 list you reckon? #1 for two weeks in March-April Between The Simpsons and Julee Cruise.

    Also look out for the bit near the end containing the Line "Music Makes You Lose Control" (used later in Missy Elliot's 2005 song Lose Control) - unknown if this is where that came from or its another sample incorporated into this track.

    Rush was released in the UK as a kinda Double A-side to Big Audio Dynamite II's cover of the Clash's Should I Stay Or Should I Go. The Parent album, The Globe reached #10 on the album chart and its title track, the next single, Reached #8. #1 for two weeks in October between Martika and U2.

    Everyone's back in the running for Round 2 - you can vote for the Aussies now.
