'Father & Son' was the last #2 of 2004 and 'Empty Souls' the first #2 of 2005.

Nah, I think for both years all the best songs were actually those that peaked at #3 weirdly enough. Out of the #2s,...

Why did gabber/happy hardcore never take off in the UK charts?

Look at much of Europe in the mid-1990s - as close to home as Ireland and even as far away as Australia/New Zealand - and you'll see tons of high-BPM commercial gabber and happy hardcore music all...

What the hell was "Nu Rave" all about?

There's been many fads and crazes in the charts over the decades but to this day I still can't quite understand the thinking behind this one.

Around about 2006 a load of music mags went nuts for...

...for the first two or three years. Imagine trying to sum up the noughties at this point in 2004, it would be a tricky one.

No one has any idea what the charts will sound like by 2019.
