Popular in early 2002

The new year began with a quiet week; the de facto two week Christmas break was now established. Sales were so weak that Hermes House Band hit number 1 in Scotland with Country roads. We can't blame that on drunken Scotsmen streaming all sorts of shite at Hogmanay parties; streaming had been invented, but not over dialup.

(More: With number ones for Aaliyah, George Harrison, Enrique Iglesias, Westlife, Will Young, Gareth Gates, Oasis, The Sugababes, Holly Valance, Ronan Keating, Liberty X, Eminem, and Junkie XL. Plus a superlative lyric from Ant and Dec.)

    [[taps comment box]] Still works. Good.

    My Popular-style marks for this half's chart-toppers. 6 is above average, 8 is premier league material, 10 or more is exceptional.

    Aaliyah – 8
    Enrique Iglesias – 3
    Westlife – 4
    Will Young – 5
    Gareth Gates – 2
    Oasis – 3
    Sugababes – TEN POINTS!
    Holly Valance – 4
    Ronan Keating – 2
    Liberty X – 7
    Eminem – 2
    Will Young – 5
    Elvis Vs Jxl – 7

    Nothing else I talked about in the main article gets TEN POINTS!, but 9 to No Doubt, Shakira, Doves, and the video for Marilyn Manson. In the top ten, it's TEN to Céline Dion A new day has come, and Chemical Brothers Star guitar; and Kosheen's top 20 hit Hungry.
