This week it’s some unashamedly feel good pop songs but as it’s Christmas there’s 4 tracks instead of the usual 2! Two from two British pop groups and two from the Queen of Pop herself, Madonna.
“Don’t Stop Movin'” by S Club 7 was number 1 for two
non-consecutive weeks in 2001. This is a slightly different background mix to the original. More of a dance mix!

“Stomp” by Steps was number 1 for one week in 2000

“Holiday” by Madonna reached 6 in 1984 but then reached 2 when rereleased in 1985, held off the top spot by “Into the Groove”!

This week we have two lesser known tracks from two of the most famous pop stars ever.
“Secret” by Madonna from her underrated 1994 album “Bedtime Stories”. This was a more downbeat R&B style album, and sandwiched between its high profile predecessor “Erotica” and the massively successful and change of sound “Ray of Light”, it tends to be overlooked.
It is a forgotten gem and this was the first single from it.

Next to the late Michael Jackson.
“Liberian Girl” was the ninth (yes, ninth!) and final single taken from his 1987 album “Bad” and released in 1989! As a result it is not maybe as well known as some its other album mates such as the title track “Bad” and others such as “Smooth Criminal”, “Dirty Diana” and “Man in the Mirror”. However, this is a beautiful song and Jackson’s voice has never sounded better in it. A personal favourite of mine of his.
