Which Decade Is Tops For Pops?


Elvis Presley vs Chicory Tip vs Tight Fit vs Shakespears Sister vs Westlife vs Gotye/Kimbra

Season 1, Ep. 9

This episode - our second in a row to delve into the weird world of Number Ones - is all about connections. Two of our chart-toppers have roots in the 18th century; three of them were originally written in another language, the same people translated two of them into English, and two of them feature misheard lyrics; two of them gave their performers record-breaking tenth Number Ones; the keyboardist on one was the producer on another; two of them introduce second vocalists halfway through, who shift the meanings of the songs. Everything connects, and we are here to talk you through the connections!
