Here are all of 20yearsago's jams.
I think this is the radio version rather than the "original raas bumba claat version". SHAGGY!
Get Oh Carolina at Amazon
Jammed: 13th Feb 2013
by Duran Duran
In a lean week for new entries, here's one of last week's releases which climbs into the Top 10 this week.
Watch it now
Get Ordinary World at Amazon
Jammed: 6th Feb 2013
by 2 Unlimited
One of those rare 20-years-ago songs which I (aged 11) actually purchased. Sigh.
Get No Limit at Amazon
Jammed: 30th Jan 2013
by The Beloved
Their only UK top ten. The video passed me by at the time, but it does feature a naked Tess Daly...
Get Sweet Harmony at Amazon
Jammed: 23rd Jan 2013
by Faith No More
Their biggest UK hit. There must be a surprisingly high number of people who think this is their standard fare
Get Easy at Amazon
Jammed: 16th Jan 2013
by Arrested Development
Welcome to 1993! Kicking off the year with Arrested Development's last big UK hit, in at #8 this week.
Get Mr. Wendal at Amazon
Jammed: 9th Jan 2013
by Charles & Eddie
No exceptional new entries in the 1992 Christmas chart, so let's end the year with a song that was #3 at Xmas.
Listen to it now
Get Would I Lie to You at Amazon
Jammed: 26th Dec 2012
by The Shamen
If you think I've been jamming too much Shamen in 1992... look away now. This was their final top ten hit.
Get Phorever People at Amazon
Jammed: 19th Dec 2012
by Take That
Nirvana's "In Bloom" charted this week, but the rules state I must pick my favourite song *at that time*. Sigh
Get Could It Be Magic at Amazon
Jammed: 12th Dec 2012
by HWA featuring Sonic the Hedgehog
We've had Tetris and Mario already; Sonic's late to the '92 party. It stands for Hedgehogs With Attitude, btw.
Get Supersonic at Amazon
Jammed: 5th Dec 2012
by Deacon Blue
Oft-forgotten band with an amazingly deep discography. Unbelievably, this was their last top twenty hit...
Get Your Town at Amazon
Jammed: 27th Nov 2012
by The Prodigy
I was only 11 at the time, but was already a massive Prodigy fan. My third Prodigy jam of 1992.
Get Out Of Space at Amazon
Jammed: 21st Nov 2012
Their second top ten of 1992, "Baker Street" was unlucky to miss out on being jammed in the summer.
Get Never Let Her Slip Away at Amazon
Jammed: 14th Nov 2012
My third Shamen jam of 1992.
Get Boss Drum at Amazon
Jammed: 7th Nov 2012
by Ambassadors Of Funk
Hot on the heels of Dr Spin's "Tetris", an even better '92 Nintendo jam. The whole album is equally brilliant.
Get Supermarioland at Amazon
Jammed: 31st Oct 2012
Bon Jovi's "Keep The Faith" also charted this week, though at the time I was obsessed with this jam instead.
Get People Everyday at Amazon
Jammed: 24th Oct 2012
by Tasmin Archer
No 17-Oct-1992 new entries which interest me, so instead here's a song which climbed to number one this week.
Get Sleeping Satellite at Amazon
Jammed: 17th Oct 2012
by House of Pain
Unbelievably only reached #32. Randomly re-entered the charts in July 2012; I think it was used in an advert.
Get Jump Around at Amazon
Jammed: 10th Oct 2012
by Dr Spin
In one of those dodgy bits of Wikipedia trivia, apparently the man behind Dr Spin was Andrew Lloyd Webber...
Get Tetris at Amazon
Jammed: 3rd Oct 2012
by Stereo MC's
Before it was ruined by Carphone Warehouse. 1st single from album which was named Best Album at the '94 Brits.
Get Connected at Amazon
Jammed: 26th Sep 2012
by Bob Marley
His 2nd posthumous Top 10 (after Buffalo Soldier, 1982). His last unless you count that Funkstar Deluxe remix.
Get Iron Lion Zion at Amazon
Jammed: 19th Sep 2012
by Michael Jackson
Released 20 years ago this week, this is my most literal Jam ever.
Get Jam at Amazon
Jammed: 12th Sep 2012
by Dr. Alban
Autumn chart smash which stayed in the Top 10 until Halloween. Narrowly edged out Ebeneezer Goode as my pick.
Get It's My Life at Amazon
Jammed: 5th Sep 2012
by Lionel Richie
No new entries took my fancy, so here's an entry from last week which kept climbing the charts until October.
Get My Destiny at Amazon
Jammed: 29th Aug 2012
by Annie Lennox
Sadly the original video (featuring Hugh Laurie in his full Blackadder III regalia) isn't embeddable...
Get Walking On Broken Glass at Amazon
Jammed: 22nd Aug 2012
by Luther Vandross & Janet Jackson
In the key of F#m, with a moderate tempo of 120pm. Thanks, Wikipedia!
Get The Best Things In Life Are Free at Amazon
Jammed: 15th Aug 2012
by Freddie Mercury & Montserrat Caballé
Originally reached #8 in 1987, re-released 20 years ago today for the 1992 Olympics. I bought it on cassette.
Get Barcelona at Amazon
Jammed: 8th Aug 2012
by Jon Secada
Get Just Another Day at Amazon
Jammed: 1st Aug 2012
A classic, though I only picked it because YouTube failed to deliver a usable Achy Breaky Heart video.
Get Lithium at Amazon
Jammed: 25th Jul 2012
A big year for The Shamen - FIVE top tens, and winner of Best New Act at the Smash Hits Poll Winners Party.
Get L.S.I. at Amazon
Jammed: 18th Jul 2012
by Jimmy Nail
Get Ain't No Doubt at Amazon
Jammed: 11th Jul 2012

Get Rhythm Is a Dancer at Amazon
Jammed: 4th Jul 2012
Get Even Better Than The Real Thing at Amazon
Jammed: 20th Jun 2012
Perfectly normal shenanigans in the video.
Get Take A Chance On Me at Amazon
Jammed: 13th Jun 2012
by Utah Saints
The 1992 original with Kate Bush, not the dodgy 2008 remix with vocals from somebody from Pop Idol.
Get Something Good at Amazon
Jammed: 6th Jun 2012
Bonus points if you can remember either of their other UK top 40 singles.
Get Kriss Kross at Amazon

Get Jump at Amazon
by The Cure
Get Friday I'm In Love at Amazon
Jammed: 23rd May 2012
by Shakespears Sister
I was hooked on this - at the time, I made a mixtape which bragged on the cover that it featured this song...
Get I Don't Care at Amazon
Jammed: 16th May 2012
by Del Amitri
Get Always The Last To Know at Amazon
Jammed: 9th May 2012
Most of my 1992 jams thus far have aged pretty well. This one, it's fair to say, is certainly of its era.
Get Workaholic at Amazon
Jammed: 2nd May 2012
by Marc Almond
Edges out KWS - "Please Don't Go" this week, as this video has aged a lot better. Seriously, search for it.
Get The Days of Pearly Spencer at Amazon
Jammed: 25th Apr 2012
by Pearl Jam
It was 20 years ago today that Mr Vedder taught the band to play.
Get Even Flow at Amazon
Jammed: 18th Apr 2012
It wasn't included on an album, but it's still one of their finest singles.
Get Popscene at Amazon
Jammed: 11th Apr 2012
by Curtis Stigers
A real dearth of new entries this week. It was literally this or Mr Bean.
Get You're All That Matters To Me at Amazon
Jammed: 4th Apr 2012
by Manic Street Preachers
Single #4 of 6 from Generation Terrorists. Not a lot of new entries this week, it was this or Def Leppard...
Get Slash 'N' Burn at Amazon
Jammed: 28th Mar 2012
by Right Said Fred
New at #16 this week. It eventually climbed to #1, ending Shakespears Sister's eight-week reign at the top.
Get Deeply Dippy at Amazon
Jammed: 21st Mar 2012
by Red Hot Chili Peppers
The jam that inspired the @20yearsago account. How is this song twenty years old? Madness.
Get Under The Bridge at Amazon
Jammed: 20th Mar 2012
