Yeah why not? 10 Random songs that you will either love or hate. Oh well – each to their own and that! As Buddy Holly once sang – Rave On!

1. Dyewitness – Masterplan

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5jn0q2xOu8

Absolute classic club tune – anyone who ever went to a rave in the 1990’s would have hear this one pumping out the speakers. Unbelievably though, it never charted in the UK.

2. The Shamen – Move Any Mountain

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-o15Xmaz2A

Another classic tune from the early 1990’s. For a spell, early on in that decade, the Shamen were huge and hit the top spot with ‘drug’ classic ‘Ebenezzer Goode’ (E’s are good, E’s are good) in the autumn of 1992. Reversing back to the summer of the previous year saw this song reach number 4 in the UK charts.

3. The House Of Love – Shine On

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnzKGQJ-DpI

This song was the one that hit the highest chart position for the band. Released way back in 1990 it reached a peak of number 20 in the UK charts.

4. East 17 – House Of Love

After you have heard a song from a band called ‘House Of Love’ I thought it would be fun to listen to a song called ‘House Of Love’. This song was East 17’s debut single, released in August 1992 – it reached number 10 in the UK charts.

5. The Beloved – Sweet Harmony

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QK7hItW05zA

Slight change of pace for you here. This song was the bands biggest hit and only ever top 10 hit. Released in 1993 it climbed to a peak of number 8 in the UK charts.

6. Helmut & House Of Pain – Just Another Victim

What happens when you merge ‘heavy metal’ with ‘rap’? Something like this or something like that! Taken from the film Judgement Night, this song never charted in the UK.

7. Soup Dragons – I’m Free

Random fact, fact fans – this song is actually a very old Rolling Stones tune given a glorious shake up by the Soup Dragons. Reaching number 5 in the UK charts in the summer of 1990 it was the Soup Dragons biggest ever hit.

8. Scooter – Rebel Yell

A Billy Idol classic gets a shock re-make! Scooter took this to number 30 in the UK charts in the early 1990’s.

9. Jesus Jones – International Bright Young Thing

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Wa_nTuWAHE

This song was the biggest hit Jesus Jones ever had and was their only hit to breach the top 10 in the UK charts. It peaked at number 7 way back in early 1991.

10. Yazz and the Plastic Population – The Only Way Is Up

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtKADQnjQmc

Just to finish this list, we have a UK number one hit from way back in the summer of 1998.
