Which Decade Is Tops For Pops?
The Searchers vs Slade vs Rocksteady Crew vs Mariah Carey vs Holly Valance vs Union J
Join Mike, Nick and Trev as they pick apart six hit singles that were in the same position in the UK Top 10, exactly ten years apart - then vote for your own favourites. Highlights from the launch episode include a Mariah Carey fever dream, the bakery success of The Searchers' first drummer, a Poundland Harry Styles, the best chart "crew", and a harsh judgement on Maroon 5's "Sugar". There's also the long-delayed public countdown of Mike's November 1983 personal Top 10, a withering critique of boyband hairdos, a fond look back at dodgy playground breakdancers, and a salute to the mighty "ong-dinga-rong-dinga" bassline.
