#ThrowBackThursday: 5/5/16

By Joe Young - Deputy Culture Editor

Next up in our #TBT series is the 4th May. Not gonna lie, there are some crackers from this day in history. Here are our five favourites!

Madonna – Vogue

This iconic 1990 pop anthem is one of Madonna’s greatest successes. Borrowing the idea of ‘voguing’ from the New York gay community, she made it mainstream and broadcast it to a world who immediately fell in love with it.

S Club 7 – Don’t Stop Movin’

A cheesy 2001 pop anthem with a questionable music video – what’s not to love? I defy you to try and find a student who doesn’t know this song. I won’t lie though – I’m not too upset that music has moved away from this.

Tony Christie ft. Peter Kay – (Is This The Way To) Amarillo

Cringeworthy. Totally cringeworthy. But how many songs you know feature Peter Kay lipsyncing to Tony Christie with a host of BBC celebrities? I’m willing to bet this 2005 chart-topper is the only one.

Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe

In 2012, this song was released. It charted on 21 different charts for a total of 884 weeks. Have a listen, and I assure you you’ll be able to see why – definitely one of the stronger ones on our list. It helps that the music video is funny too.

OMI – Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix)

I love this song. I found myself singing along to it long before I knew what it actually was. It’s got a great beat behind it, and is very easy to listen and sing along to. Another strong one.

Of course, there are dozens of other fantastic songs from today that we couldn’t include on our list. Find them here then let us know whether or not you agree @UCLanPluto or by leaving a comment below!
