We heard on Christmas day we lost another major recording star, George Michael was found dead in bed at the age of 53. He appears to have died peacefully in his sleep. During his career spanning almost 35 years he made some of the biggest songs to hit the UK Top 40. This is a show I recorded a few years ago in celebration of his music.

The immortal “Last Christmas” became one of the greatest ever Christmas Songs. “Careless Whisper” (credited in some places as with Wham!” was written by George and Wham! Partner Andrew Ridgely but was his first foray into solo work. Three years later came the “Faith” album, one of the best recordings in UK history of the 80s. Hits, after hits appeared “I’m Your Man”, “Father Figure”, “Club Tropicana”, “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go”, “Amazing”, “Jesus To A Child” and so many more.

Taking a trip back to what seems like a lifetime ago now, the nineties. When your Rachel Haircut was cool, Tamagotchi were the must have gadget and films like Braveheart, Titanic, Silence Of The Lambs were winning Oscars. This show represents VH1’s list of what they say is voted the greatest songs of the decade.

So we are looking at such diversity as Pearl Jam to Backstreet Boys. Britney Spears to Beck. Also Eminem, U2, Nirvana, R.E.M, Whitney, and Counting Crows. There is bound to be something for anyone who remembers with fondness the decade where Disney was in renaissance. Enjoy

Shakin' Stevens Top 40 Artist Chart

Shakin’ Stevens is back with his first album in five years. “Echoes of Our Times” here we explore the 2012 chart show of Shaky’s career we did. A highly popular show that’s been requested for a repost. Shaky began in the late sixties with the Sunsets, taking almost ten years from recording before a hit came along. Then in 1981, he exploded.

Along the way he has played Elvis in the West End. Sold out across Europe over three decades in concert. Going on to have more Top Of The Pops performances (I count 64 in all) than any other artist. Selling more singles in the UK in the 1980s than any other artist, and more weeks in total for that decade on the singles chart than any other artist. What more can I say? I give you peeps, one more time, Mr Shakin’ Stevens. Enjoy!

Sia is looking for a third week at the top, but Drake is back on the climb. Who’s gonna make it happen. Surprise in store for the Beliebers to. Chainsmokers are riding high with two singles in the top 10. Twenty One Pilots prove they’re the band of the moment. We are looking at the Top 40 singles and Top 10 albums.

There is lots of new up + coming music, to pique your attention. The top five is still dominated with the Drake Star, Rihanna, Sia and Justin in there. New albums from Fantasia, Hilary Scott and Jake Owen. DJ Khaled is the album to beat at the top. New entries in the Top 40 for Desiigner, French Montana, Coldplay and Lil Wayne. All in all a very eclectic and enjoyable chart.
