Top of the Pops when you joined up.

When I joined up Help by the Beatles and We Got to get out of this Place by the Animals. september 1965
which now seems a bit Ironic.
what was popular when you guys joined.
I think this has already been done?
but I'll start with Wild thing by the troggs and 'trains and boats and planes'
six months earlier than you by the looks of it.
B*witched had two number one singles while I was in basic. The other bands at number one over those twelve weeks included the Spice Girls, Spacedust and Billie Piper.

That says everything that needs to be said about music in the 1990s...
September 1959
UK ~ Top Singles
Positions / Title / Artist
01. Only Sixteen - Craig Douglas
02. Living Doll - Cliff Richard
03. Lonely Boy - Paula Anka
04. Here Comes Summer - Jerry Keller
05. China Tea - Russ Conway

Only Sixteen......I was.
Strolled in to "You Bastard - ATV"

Walked out to "Throwing It All Away - Genesis"
Seems "Dancing Queen" was #1 and it must have stayed there for the whole of the first 6 weeks of my life in green.

Probably some sort of omen in there somewhere.

And just to show how much UK society had matured in all the time I was in "Can we fix it" by "Bob the Builder" was #1 when I finally handed my mod90 in.


Bryan cunting fucking bollocking adams - for the whole of basic trg!!!!
I was gonna say we must have joined up about the same time, but given how long that fucking tune was at the top spot I'm not so sure. Insanity by Oceanic was up there somewhere too, along with the Prodigy's Charlie Says.
That black bloke singing what a wonderful world.
