It's the truth - it's a fact.

 

I was gone - now I'm back!

 

With part two of this wonderful time!

And a whole buttload of brilliant British jams from the turn of the decade. The credit crunch! A time we all cherish. Honestly and openly, you can hear so much change in the five years we'll survey - the sound of English pop changed multiple times.

 

Where it landed... me no likey. But let's enjoy a time before pop culture died!

 

@supaspaz will bless us with a beautiful banner, but let's get started? Come one, come all...

 

and vote! The songs (and a Spotify playlist) will be posted below. Rank them from 1-10, with four special scores:

 

10.25

10.5

10.75

11

 

Choose wisely! And raise a pint to Nadia Oh!

I had to do it to them!

 

The Promise is everyone's number one, right? For sentiment and quality?!?!?!?

Ooh, I don't know most of these songs, but "That's Not My Name," "The Fear," and "Somebody to Love Me" might be enough to guarantee my participation! :duca:

BIHHHH THE SCRHIM I LET OUT

 

I was still living in the UK waiting to move abroad during the first part and now I’m finally on the other side of the world this rate is going to make me nostalgic for home :jonnycat: let’s go girls

Anyone who gives Mini Viva below a 10 for any song is getting a perma I’ve already spoken with admin about this to ensure it happens. Let that be the first and final warning. :sistrens:

"Love Etc." for the win! "All Fired Up" and "The Boy Does Nothing" can fill out the top three.

I should've known Jessie would be on this bill :deadbanana:

 

Weirdly I know quite a bit less this time around than last time around... will be fun to do the first New New ATRL rate though. Not my one to root for, but Song 4 Mutya deserves to be top 10 at the VERY least!

I do love how a) Mini Viva has almost been erased from the internet and b) their three singles are very clearly what GA6 would have been if they didn't go on hiatus.

I have thought about this so much lately, we were told things never disappear from the internet and yet a lot of mid/late 00s culture has almost NO traces now. I’m going to think it was a fever dream soon

 

It’s up to us to save them from extinction. Also tea, they were ahead of their time :jonny6:

I might do this just to give Girls Aloud their deserved 11, but it might not be the song you expect.. :mandown:

 

I am fairly unfamiliar with most of these tracks being a US resident, but I do love me some Brit pop so I'm excited to discover some gems to add to my library :matty:
