November's drawing to a close - time for all the DJs out there to start drawing up their Christmas Party playlists. Here's one for those revellers to "groove" to. This reached #3 on this day in 1981.

This singer, who has a new album out this week, has been having hits for 20 years. This song entered the Top 40 at #12 this day in 1995, and if you play it you'll probably be humming the melody for the rest of the day...

Rubbish band name. Rubbish song title. Excellent synth-pop song that could only have been from the early 80s. This reached #6 back in October 1983...

This is one of my all time favourite songs. I loved it when I first heard it in 1990 (though I didn't understand any of the lyrics) and I still love it now. Peaking at #19 eighteen years ago today, this is Aztec Camera featuring Mick Jones...

From 7 years ago this week, arguably the best pop-punk track ever to reach the Top 10. Turn up your volume for this one...

This week, one of the one hit wonders of the past ten years that is rarely heard nowadays, a jolly little pop song that reached #2 (appropriately) this week in 1999...

Two days early this week because I'm at a conference on Wednesday, this week's video is of an under-rated song - a cover version that turned a dull early 70s song into something quite special - that reached #25 today in 1991...

Here we have one of those songs that could only have been a hit in the early nineties - it was 16 years ago this week when this entered the charts at #2.

He's a moron, oh yes indeed. I wouldn't be all that surprised to see this song, which reached #4 this week in 1978, released in some form before the year is out...

One of the songs, and videos, of the year so far has to be Weezer's 'Pork And Beans'. From this week six years ago, here's their previous single - a #29 hit complete with Muppets.

(That other one you're thinking of? - it never happened. It never happened. It never happened.)

You all remember their big hit (otherwise known as "that Tony Blair song"), but how many of you recall the follow-ups.

Entering at number 21 on 3 September 1995, I give you D:Ream - 'Party Up The World':
