"Maybe the controversy surrounding the video for this track aided its chart performance. Nonetheless it's difficult to deny the appeal of this track. New single 'Not Gonna Get Us' due for release soon."
"Somewhat disputing the success of reality-TV artists, here's the 2nd of 6 inside the top 25, with a further 5 in positions 26-75. This is the debut track from BBC's Fame Academy winner David Sneddon."
"Winners of ITV's Pop Stars: The Rivals, Girls Aloud spent four weeks at #1 over the Christmas period with this double A-side. Tipped as the new Spice Girls, expect great things from these five ladies."
"With the exception of 'Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word' by Blue + Elton John (#32), 'Lose Yourself' is the last chart-topper to spend just 1 week at the summit. From Eminem's acting debut '8 Mile'."
"The 2nd highest track on the chart of the year after 'Move Your Feet' not to reach #1 on the UK singles chart. Said accolade is still yet to befall Justin, both as a solo artist and as part of N Sync."
"Both this + 'Lose Yourself' have only recently departed the UK singles chart top 40 after more than 4 months' residence. The 2nd #1 for Daniel who changes his musical style more often than his boxers!"
"J-Lo goes from strength to strength but is still yet to build on the success of sole #1 hit 'If You Had My Love'. LL Cool J latest in the line of male RnB stars for the singer/actress to team up with."
"5 weeks on the UK singles chart and this song finds it best position to date at #3. Success of this track perhaps due to the Eminem/Dr Dre endorsement or the hilarious parody 'In Da Pub' by 50 Pence."
"Ditching vocalists Yanou + Do who featured on last year's chart-topper 'Heaven' in favour of Loona ('Do You Believe In Magic') for a cover of Don Henley's hit which went to #12 both in 1985 and 1998."
"While Destiny's Child take a break from recording as a group, the girls concentrate on their solo careers. Follow-up to 'Work It Out' from last year's Austin Powers movie, Beyonce teams up with Jay-Z."
"Richard X ('Freak Like Me') produces the original pop-star flops who had the last laugh on Hear'say. 'Being Nobody' originally by Chaka Khan - LL Cool J (#13) remains the only artist to take it to #1."
"Recently pictured smoking, Charlotte Church drastically drops her angelic image for 2003 after finally realising that nobody likes it. Makes a superb crossover to the 'female dance vocalist' category."
"Oasis back on form with their latest album 'Heathen Chemistry'. 'Songbird' maybe somewhat short but depicts the Lennon/McCartney style that appeals to their fans. Written about Nicole Appleton (#47)."
"Close runner-up to David Sneddon in the Fame Academy circus, Sinead secured herself a similar record deal with the same company, and may prove to be the real winner if David loses all he has achieved."
"A song that wouldn't sound out of place on the Rocky Horror Show soundtrack. I would place money on never hearing from Electric Six again. Ironic perhaps that such a catchy song's so easily forgotten."
