This week, for our 50th Pop Gem, we asked you to suggest a theme. Loads of great suggestions came in, but we went for Charity Singles, from Facebook fan Isaac Hodgson. From the deadly serious to the fantastically silly, loads of suggestions came in.

So far you have helped to select 49 of those retro classics, usually based on a theme we give you guys, but as we celebrate reaching the 50th Pop Gem, we thought we’d get you guys to suggest the theme!

They’re the also-rans, the ones that nearly made it but stalled at the last minute in the face of a track that had the backing to go all the way. There’s no prize for reaching Number 2, until now…

But what about the songs that *do* make it all the way?
Not every chart-topper stays famous, and our theme this week is Forgotten Number 1s – the big hits that burned bright, but now nobody really recalls their moment of glory. We decided it was time to change that.
