We like a pop tune. No, rephrase, we LOVE a pop tune. And throughout 2012 the Official Charts Company are celebrating 60 years of the Official Singles Chart – the home of said pop tunes. But, ever wondered what happens to some songs when they disappear out of the charts, off radio playlists, pulled from music TV channels, never to be seen again?
Well, every Friday OfficialCharts.com have been shining the pop spotlight on some lesser known, but not less brilliant pop bangers from the past in Official Charts Pop Gems. These glorious musical nuggets which remind us of the good times in life – growing up, making up dances in the school playground, learning lyrics from the latest issue of Smash Hits, our first snog, celebrating the end of our GCSEs, passing our driving test, our first holiday without our parents, legendary nights out on the tiles.
To celebrate ten weeks of Official Chart Pop Gems, we’ve collected them all together in one handyplaylist! So kick start your weekend with an extra dollop of melodic goodness in your afternoon mug of PG Tips. And remember to share the love with your mates. It’s your pop duty!
