In 1988, Tanita Tikaram released her debut album. There were two big hits on the album, Twist In My Sobriety and Good Tradition. Tanita was only 18 years old when writing and recording the songs. Its lyrics are about a family, which runs on two extremes: love and hate. Good Tradition was her debut single, but Twist In My Sobriety had the honour of charting first. The song was a number 10 hit in the UK. Enjoy

In 2015, Anna Lotterud (better known as Anna Of The North) made her debut with the single Sway. And as that was in summer, there had to be a winter song, too. She managed to make such a song, fitting December perfectly, and without doing a lot, it got a million Spotify plays in no-time! A perfect song to play this Christmas, and mind you: it’s probably not the last we’ve heard of her! Enjoy

In 2015, the DJ Bruce Fielder released his debut single under the name of Sigala. He wrote the song after drinken some beers on Sunday. He took a part of the song ABC by the Jacksons, put a house beat under it and then played it to Tito Jackson… who absolutely loved it. Of course this is no guarantee for having a hit, but he debuted on number 1 in the UK, higher than the original by the Jacksons, who made it to number 8. Enjoy

In 1984, The Blue Nile released their only hit. They were without money and without record compagny to release their music, so they really had a problem. The demo of this song was played on a shoestring! Their engineer then took this song to Linn Hi-Fi, who saw changes to market their new equipment, if the Blue Nile used it. They were given 15 000 pounds to record their debut album. This song, the single of the album, was about their home town Glasgow, where the singer tries to find love between all the asphalt. It was number 87 in the UK, but a bigger hit in the Netherlands: number 28. Enjoy
