17 songs that are 17 year old this year!
17 is a funny old age - it's an age where you can legally have sex, drive a car & win millions on the lottery! Here's a few tracks that turned 17 in 2017 and their suitably retro videos in a time before HD and 4G!
1: Britney Spears - Oops I Did It Again
Britney's break out smash hit was released in March 2000!
2: All Saints - Pure Shores
The title track from Leo DiCaprio's sizzling hot The Beach movie
3: Sisqo - Thong Song
Sisqo later went on to star in several low budget Hollywood movies & there's rumours he's re-releasing Thong Song soon!
4: Samantha Mumba - Gotta Tell You
Back in the year 2000, Mumba was rocking the UK with her summer R&B vibes. These days she's a regular fixture on reality shows in her native Ireland
5: Destiny's Child - Independent Women Part 1
Prior to Beyoncé & Kelly Rowland branching out to become global superstars (sorry Michelle!); Destiny's Child were establishing themselves as the world's hottest girl group with this jam from the Charlie's Angels soundtrack
6: Modjo - Lady (Hear Me Tonight)
Still a favourite in clubs and resorts across Europe - Modjo's Lady was an essential part of the soundtrack to summer in the year 2000!
7: Sweet Female Attitude - Flowers
It's been remixed and resampled but nothing beats the original track, born in 2000!
8: Mel C - I Turn To You
Now a Gaydio Anthems regular - this is arguably the best solo single to come from any of the Spice Girls! (cue the angry emails...)
9: Craig David - Fill Me In
He may have staged a huge comeback last year, but it was the year 2000 where Craig David first burst onto the scene with this banger!
10: S Club 7 - Reach
Before they became a staple of Student Union tours as a fierce threesome, S Club 7 unleashed 'Reach' into the world in 2000 and changed the face of wedding disco's forever...
11: LeAnn Rimes - Can't Fight the Moonlight
LeAnn is back after a rather long hiatus but it was this track from Coyote Ugly that became one of her biggest hits!
12: Toploader - Dancing in the Moonlight
Speaking of moonlight, Toploader created one of the seminal one hit wonders of the decade with this...
13: Delerium ft Sarah McLachlan - Silence
Who'd have thought a downtempo track more suited to yoga workouts would become one of the dance anthems of the decade?
14: Mary Mary - Shackles
Whilst these gospel singing sisters created one of the biggest Urban tracks of the 00's - none of them is named Mary! The group's name comes from the two Mary's in the bible...
15: Zombie Nation - Kernkraft 400
Back in 2000 this German-born track was a staple in clubs across Europe - these days it's the cue for rowdy chants at sports stadiums
16: Madonna - Music
The lead single to the follow up album to the critically acclaimed Ray of Light - Madonna once again reinvents her sound to keep conquering the charts in 2000!
17: William Orbit - Barber's Adagio for Strings
Mega producer William Orbit perfectly combining classical music with the re-emerging sound of trance in the early 00s to great effect - still a classic today!
Don't forget that we play an hour of amazing Old School classics every day from 11am on Gaydio Anthems!
