25 Years Ago This Week: September 19, 1993
It's always interesting how differently an artist can fare in one country compared to another, especially when their debut single is a huge success all around the world. For the female singer who arrived on the ARIA singles chart this week in 1993, her Aust...

You've got to hand it to the Swedes - they really do know their way around a good pop song. This week, the third most successful Swedish act of all time (after ABBA and Roxette, of course) made their debut on the ARIA singles chart. All that Ace Of Base wan...

Yes, this week in 1993, a single debuted at number 1 for only the fourth time in ARIA chart history. But the less time I have to spend reliving that torturous part of musical history, the better. One of two number 1 hits debuting this week in 1993 Luckily f...

Some artists start their careers with massive success and then it's all downhill from there. Others begin big and just keep getting bigger... like the singer who arrived on the ARIA singles chart with the first taste of her third studio album this week in 1...

There are some songs you know will be hits eventually. All it takes is the right version by the right performer at the right time - like the remake that debuted on the ARIA singles chart this week in 1993. Big hat, big hit for Dannii Minogue this week in 19...

Back in 1993 when the release of a new album wasn't preceded by a dripfeed of tracks in the weeks prior, getting the order of singles right was crucial in setting up a successful album campaign. And no one knew that better than Janet Jackson, whose lead sin...

What a difference three years makes. In 1990, countless R&B songs that had been big hits in the US made little to no impact in Australia. By 1993, even the whiff of a new jack swing beat or four-part vocal harmonies was enough to send a song charging into t...

Music acts remake songs for all sorts of reasons. This week in 1993, Australia's favourite British boy band debuted on the ARIA chart with a track they seemingly covered purely because the lyrics and their name went hand-in-hand. East-end boys took on "West...

This week in 1993 on the ARIA singles chart, two instances of a common problem for musicians occured: the less successful follow-up to a smash hit debut single.  Jeremy Jordan and Snow had two of the biggest hits of the year... and these forgotten follow-up...

In between all the reggae, grunge, Eurodance and rock remakes that defined 1993, moments of pure pop were few and far between. Thank goodness, then, for the return of my favourite group (although they're techically a duo) of all time. So ask yourself now wh...
