Official Charts Flashback 2000: Oasis Go Let It Out as they hit Number 1

Meanwhile, Eiffel 65 score another Top 5 hit (!)

In February 2000, Oasis found themselves back at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart following a two-year break.

Go Let It Out was the lead single from the band's fourth studio album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants (the phrase engraved on the rim of the then-newly-released £2 coin, fact fans).

Debuting at the summit, the track displaced Gabrielle's Rise; knocking it down to Number 2 after two weeks at the top.

Go Let It Out became Oasis's fifth UK Number 1 single at that time, following previous chart-toppers Some Might Say (1995), Don't Look Back In Anger (1996), D'Ya Know What I Mean? (1997) and All Around The World (1998).

But the real chart story from this week in 2000 perhaps came courtesy of a certain Italian Eurodance outfit...

Having already scored a mammoth Number 1 single with 1999's Blue (Da Ba Dee), Eiffel 65 actually secured a second Top 5 single this week in 2000.

Yep - Move Your Body entered the Official Singles Chart at a very respectable Number 3, before going on to spend a total of seven weeks in the Top 40.

Next time anyone dares call Eiffel 65 a 'one-hit wonder,' we beg you show them this very article in honour of their legacy. Thank you very much.

Alas, Move Your Body would become the group's final UK Top 5 hit to date; though they did go on to claim a Top 20 album the following month with Europop. A Number 12 smash.

Elsewhere, the Top 20 saw brand-new entries from Ian Brown's Dolphins Were Monkeys (5), Joey Negro featuring Taka Boom's Must Be Magic and Hepburn (remember them?) with their third and final single Deep Deep Down (16).

Gone too soon, Hepburn. Gone too soon.
