Charts are simply not like that anymore. I hate X Factor why can't they release it in February or mid Jan?

Thank god.
The top 3 back then were the best of an awful bunch.

This weeks top ten is a much better quality list of music... Band Aid 30 excepted.
I wouldn't call Power Rangers, Jimmy Nail and Zig & Zag enduring classics.
Give me Oliver Heldens over Rednex anyday.

No, not brilliant apart from Oasis. The charts of the early 90s were as bad then as they are now.

Not good songs apart from Oasis and Louis Armstrong (classic) and Mariah Carey which is endearing but has become overplayed. Celine Dion sure knew how to deliver a power ballad.
The rest are awful novelty songs or boybands. Didnt Whigfield get sued by Mungo Jerry for Another Day? The backing was identical to Saturday Night too.

I thought I'd mistakenly stumbled into the Torturous Music thread by accident for a moment there.

Zig & Zag is one of the finest novelty songs ever! I bought it, and still love it.

LOL I bought it too.

What was strange about that Zig & Zag single was that all my mates preferred the b-side Turn On Your Landing Light.

At the time though Oasis - Whatever was my overall fave single in the top 10 and I really wanted that to be the Christmas #1 but it's stood the test of time.

Oh, and I loved Cotton Eye Joe (still do ). A proper guilty pleasure right there.

Mariah Carey's All i Want For Christmas was the best in regards to a christmas song.

Try the 1979 or the 1981 top ten at Christmas for true excellence, although '94 was just about okay. The Celine Dion single, Think Twice, at No6 in the Christmas 1994 chart had infact gone down yet would go up again and was still a whole month away from reaching No1 in late January where it would stay for 7 weeks into mid March '95. I bought it.

agreed, a far superior chart to that one from 94... which apart from the top three (as was mentioned) was shite.

Oh yeah..at No1 that "christmas" song that isn't anything to do with Christmas but somehow always makes it on to every Christmas compilation album ever released ( yet "Wombling Merry Christmas" - the best Christmas pop song ever - never gets a look in on said festive compilations )

Sorry but the 94 is (top 3 excepted) pure mouse poo.

If you want a great Christmas top 10, the 1987 one springs to mind:

1 Always on your Mind - Pet Shop Boys
2 Fairytale of New York - Pogues/Kirsty Mac Coll
3 Rockin Around the Christmas Tree - Mel and Kim
4 When I Fall in Love - Rick Astley
5 Love Letters - Alison Moyet
6 The Way you Make Me Feel - Michael Jackson
7 When I Fall in Love - Nat King Cole
8 Heaven is a Place on Earth - Belinda Carlisle
9 China in Your Hand - TPau
10 What do you want to make those eyes at me for - Shakin Stevens

The thing is whatever you think of the charts in 1994 at least there was variety which is something you can't say about today's charts. The last time we had varied and good charts was around 2007/ 2008. Also why are people downloading the same songs week after week? Most of the charts is full of songs that have spent over 30 weeks in there.

You just referred to Louis Armstrong as shite. You are no longer allowed to have an opinion on music.
