Savage Garden- Savage Garden: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Chorus of a Song

Savage Garden- Savage Garden
United States- Savage Garden did very well with their 7x platinum self-titled debut album, as well as the singles released taken from it. They had three singles released im the country and check what went to the top 10:
I Want You- #4
Truly Madly Deeply- #1
Two among the three singles released from “Savage Garden” album went to the top 10. Their other single which failed to reach the higher position has been “To the Moon and Back” which reached number 24. “I Want You” was their first single that gave them success. Nevertheless, “Truly Madly Deeply” made them a bigger star after it reached number 1 in the country and became a sleeper hit there.

United Kingdom- Just like in the US, Savage Garden released three singles in United Kingdom. Those three singles charted, but it wasn’t an assurance that all of those songs went to top 10. See it below which song entered the top 10:
To the Moon and Back- #3
Truly Madly Deeply-#4
Savage Garden’s first single “I Want You” almost reached the top 10 when it only peaked at number 11. Still, they scored two top 10 hitz which started with “To the Moon and Back”, their highest as it peaked at number 3. While “Truly Madly Deeply” which peaked at number 4, has sold more for reaching platinum by BPI.

Savage Garden’s biggest single from the album is obviously “Truly Madly Deeply” since it has sold more in United Kingdom, and it reached number 1 in United Statez. The song was about doing everything for the person you ‘truly, madly, and deeply’ in love with. Enjoy the love song below:

Truly Madly Deeply (Chorus)
I want to stand with you on
a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I want to lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me

Dido- No Angel: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Chorus of a Song

Dido- No Angel
United States- Dido’s initial attempt to break the American market which she succeeded when her album “No Angel” was released which entered the top 5, and even awarded with 4x platinum by RIAA. The album released some singles but let’s check what made it to the top 10.
Thank You- #3
With the singles released from the album, only “Thank You” made it to chart. The song reached number 3, which is a follow up to the song “Here With Me”, a song which almost charted on Billboard charts as it only reached Bubbling Under.

United Kingdom- Dido was formerly a member of a UK band and gone solo in this album. Of course, she also achieved success from that album in her hometown, where it was a top seller with certification from BPI as 10x platinum. She charted on the singles charts with her releases. Here are those songs managing to enter the top 10:
Here With Me- #4
Thank You- #3
Dido had two top 10 hits from the album, which both reached the top 5. It started with “Here With Me” when it peaked at number 4, a good start for her. It was followed by a more successful single “Thank You” which had gone to number 3. Her song “Hunter” failed to enter the top 10 boundary for reaching number 17.

Since Dido had two official hit singles which were “Here With Me” and “Thank You”, but her biggest hit worldwide was obviously “Thank You”. It’s fame even started when sampled on Eminem’s hit “Stan”, a number 1 hit in a number of countries. So I am sharing “Thank You” and hope you do enjoy.

Thank You (Chorus)
I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life

Boyzone- Where We Belong: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Chorus of a Song

Boyzone- Where We Belong
United States- Boyzone’s album “Where We Belong” was released in United States, and even charted at the Billboard 200, However, no singles ever reached the top 10. Though, their song “No Matter What” did well at Adult Contemporary, which is a component chart of Billboard.

United Kingdom- Boyzone remained as one of the biggest boybands in the country for scoring a lot of hits. The lads scored a lot of top 10 hits with their previous albums, but they also did well with the singles from this album. Here are the top 10 singles from “Where We Belong” in UK:
Baby Can I Hold You- #2
All That I Need-#1
No Matter What-#1
I Love the Way You Love Me-too #2
Apparently, all the singles from “Where We Belong” not only reached the top 10, rather top 2. Two singles were number 1 hits such as the original songs “All That I Need” and “No Matter What”. The cover songs “Baby Can I Hold You” and “I Love the Way You Love Me” were number 2 hits. All in all, as the singles from the album was included, the guys scored 13 top 10 and 4 number 1 singles at that time. They became the biggest boyband at the time in UK with their hit singles and album sales.

Since Boyzone had two number one hits, “All That I Need” and “No Matter What”, I’ll choose “No Matter What” between the two. It was their most successful single ever for reaching number 1 in most countries and eligible to chart in component charts in US. Check and tryto enjoy the song being shared below:

No Matter What (few lines from the song)
And I will keep you safe and strong
And shelter from the storm
No matter where it’s barren
A dream is being born

Westlife- World of Our Own / Unbreakable: The Greatest Hits Volume 1: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Chorus of a Song

Westlife- World of Our Own
United States- There’s an effort and plans of releasing “World of Our Own” album but it didn’t succeed. Thus, the guys failed to score another hit.

United Kingdom- Westlife continues to score a string of hits in United Kingdom. Three singles were released for the album and see what songs went to top 10:
Queen of My Heart- #1
World of Our Own- #1
Bop Bop Baby- #5
It is this clear that all the official singles released from the album went to top 10, and even all reached the top 5. They had two number 1 singles from the record, first with the ballad “Queen of My Heart”, secondly, “World of Our Own”. While the pop hit “Bop Bop Baby” at the time was their lowest peaked single at the time. Anyway, it became the group’s 12th top 10 hit in UK.

Since Westlife scored two number 1 hits, I’ll choose from “Queen of My Heart” and “World of Our Own”. I decided to choose “Queen of My Heart” because it is a heartwarming ballad.

Queen of My Heart (Chorus)
I’ll always look back
As I walk away
This memory
Will last for eternity
And all of our tears
Will be lost in the rain
When I’ve found my way
Back to your arms again
But until that day
You know you are
The queen of my heart

Westlife- Unbreakable: The Greatest Hits Volume 1(compilation album)
United States- The compilation album was not released in America. No singles charted too.

United Kingdom- Two official singles were released from the compilation album “Unbreakable: The Greatest Hits Volume “. See what went to top 10:
Unbreakable- #1
Tonight / Miss You Nights- #3
Both singles released from the album went to the top 10 in United Kingdom. It scored the guys a total of 14 top 10 hits already when the two singles charted. “Unbreakable” became the group’s 11th number album which is a big feat. The songs “Tonight” and “Miss You Nights” were combined for a double-sided single.

It is clear that “Unbreakable” was the biggest single from the album after reaching number 1. So I am sharing the song and check below:

Unbreakable (Chorus)
This love is unbreakable
It’s unmistakable
And each time I look in your eyes
I know why
This love is untouchable
I feel that my heart just can’t deny
Each time I look in your eyes
Oh baby, I know why
This love is unbreakable

Hanson- Middle of Nowhere: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Chorus of a Song

Hanson- Middle of Nowhere
United States- As a newcomer at that time, Hanson released four singles from their first album “Middle of Nowhere”. The siblings hit it big with the singles released from the album. The top 10 singles from the album were:
Mmmbop-#1
I Will Come to You- #9
The Hanson brothers managed two singles to chart and hit the top 10. “Mmmbop” was apparently their most successful single from the album for reaching number 1 and one of the biggest hits for the year. The other two singles released failed to make it even to enter the charts.

United Kingdom- Hanson became a huge newcomer too in United Kingdom when they released their album “Middle of Nowhere”. Five singles were released from the album. Check the songs which went to top 10.
Mmmbop- #1
Where’s the Love?- #4
I Will Come to You- #5
Three of five singles from the album made it to the top 10. Just like in America, “Mmmbop” was also the biggest selling single from the album as it went to number 1. The predecessors “Where’s the Love?” and “I Will Come to You” were great hits too for reaching not just the top 10, rather the top 5 too. The singles which failed to reach the top 10 were “Weird”, which peaked at number 19, and “Thinking of You” which reached number 23.

“Mmmbop” was the obviously the biggest single from the album as it went to number in both US and UK. It even sold millions of singles. However, I am sharing “I Will Come to You” because of its nice lyrics and melody. Enjoy the song below:

I Will Come to You (Chorus)
When you have no light to guide you
And no one to walk to walk beside you
I will come to you
Oh I will come to you
When the night is dark and stormy
You won’t have to reach out for me
I will come to you
Oh I will come to you

Carly Rae Jepsen- Kiss: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Chorus of a Song

Carly Rae Jepsen- Kiss
United States- Carly Rae Jepsen achieved the milestone of her career through the number 6 album “Kiss”. But what she greatly achieved were the singles which did great at the charts. Here are those singles which were successful inside the top 10:
Call Me Maybe- #1
Good Time (with Owl City)- #8
Carly Rae Jepsen’s biggest hit was “Call Me Maybe” which reached the number 1. Aside from that, its music video has been viral. The song was awarded by RIAA with huge 9x platinum mark. “Good Time” which was her collaboration with Owl City and appeared on their respective albums went to number 8 and received a 2x platinum award.

United Kingdom- Carly Rae Jepsen had been successful in United Kingdom too with her singles. Here are those singles:
Call Me Maybe- #1
Good Time (with Owl City)- #5
“Call Me Maybe” was a huge hit in United Kingdom too when it peaked at number 1. It even achieved a 2x platinum award (by BPI) which was rarely achieved by other artists. Her collaboration with Owl City, “Good Time”, was very popular in UK too for reaching #5 with Gold Record award.

It’s kind of obvious that Carly Rae Jepsen had two big hits from the album. It is also obvious that her biggest hit from the album was “Call Me Maybe” which reached number 1 not just in US and UK, rather globally. The song is just a simple but a catchy pop track which sounds sugary for the ears. Enjoy the song as I share it below:

Call Me Maybe (Chorus)
Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here’s my number,
So call me, maybe!
It’s hard to look right
At you baby,
But here’s my number,
So call me, maybe!
Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here’s my number,
So call me, maybe!
And all the other boys,
Try to chase me,
But here’s my number,
So call me, maybe!

Boyzone- A Different Beat: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Chorus of a Song

Boyzone-A Different Beat
United States- Boyzone had tried to break the American market and released the album there. However, nothing became a hit. “Mystical Experience” was released but it didn’t even charted.

United Kingdom- Boyzone has been super popular in United Kingdom. After their success with their singles from “Said and Done”, the guys scored something from “A Different Beat which they haven’t they haven’t achieved with the predecessor. See first what singles from them made it to top 10:
Words-#1
A Different Beat- #1
Isn’t It a Wonder- #2
Picture of You- #2
As you saw from the list, the guys scored two number 1 singles from the album which “Said and Done” never had from its five top 10s. Also, the other two songs peaked at number 2. It means all of their singles from the album went to top 2. The number 1 single “Words” is an original song by the BeeGees. “A Different Beat” is a real original by the lads and showcased a new sound with such a meaningful words. By the way, “Picture of You” was featured in the album in some countries only. Also, it was part of a soundtrack of a comedy movie.

The guys’ biggest hit from the album was “Words” which has gone Gold Record awarded by BPI. “A Different Beat” is an original song but I decided to share “Picture of You” because they rarely do upbeat songs. Also, the song is good and it became very notable for being featured on “Mr Bean” movie, and was a popular hit in Asia. Check the song below with its chorus.

Picture of You (Chorus)
I had a picture of you in my mind
never knew it could be so wrong
Why’d it take me so long just to find
the friend that was there all along.

Westlife- Coast to Coast: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Chorus of a Song

Westlife- Coast to Coast
United States- Westlife did not release this album in United States after lukewarm response of their debut album, so the album had no singles reached the top 10 or even charted at the Hot 100 charts.

United Kingdom- After scoring five number 1 singles in United Kingdom of their self-titled debut album, Westlife remained the top group in the country with their singles. There were four officials singles released in the country. See the top 10 singles from them in the country:
Against All Odds (with Mariah Carey)- #1
My Love-#1
What Makes A Man- #2
Uptown Girl- #1
Westlife had all of their four released singles to the top 10, even better as all reached the top 2 as the three singles went to number 1. The first one which was “Against All Odds” which was re-recorded by Mariah Carey with them and included in “Coast to Coast”. “My Love” became their 7th consecutive number 1 single in the country. Their version of “Uptown Girl” which became part of the re-issue of the album was their 8th chart-topper in total and even became their biggest seller for reaching platinum by BPI. “What Makes a Man” became their first single to fail the top spot but it was a big seller.

“Against All Odds” and “Uptown Girl” were both number 1 hits, but both were not their original hit. “My Love” was an original song from them so I am sharing the song here.

My Love (Chorus)
So I say a little prayer
And hope my dreams will take me there
Where the skies are blue to see you once again, my love.
Over seas from coast to coast
To find the place I love the most
Where the fields are green to see you once again, my love.

Blue- Guilty / Best of Blue: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Chorus of a Song

Blue- Guilty
United States- Plans didn’t push through when breaking the American market. However, American singers were featured in a song from the album. It was “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours” with Stevie Wonder and Angie Stone.

United Kingdom- Blue continued to make a streak of top 10 hits in United Kingdom with their album “Guilty”. The album had released a total of four singles and all of them charted. Check their top 10 hits below:
Guilty- #2
Breathe Easy- #4
Bubblin’- #9
Blue scored a total of three top 10 hits in United Kingdom. Their biggest hit has been “Guilty” for peaking at number 2, whiel Breathe Easy did well at number 4. It is their only album to miss a number 1 single though, as their two previous albums did have number 1 hit/s. Their other single which failed to reach the top 10 was “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours” with the original singer of the song Stevie Wonder and R&B singer Angie Stone.

Since their biggest hit was “Guilty” for peaking at number 2, I will be sharing that song below, along with its chorus. Enjoy and see below:

Guilty (Chorus)
If it’s wrong to tell the truth
What am I supposed to do
All I want to do is speak my mind (speak my mind)
If it’s wrong to do what’s right
I’m prepared to testify
If loving you with all my heart’s a crime
Then I’m guilty

Blue- Best of Blue
United States- Blue had released a compilation album without any top 10 hit in the US.

United Kingdom- Blue had released just one single from the compilation album in United Kingdom. See the song below:
Curtain Falls- #4
Good thing Blue hit the top 10 before hiatus. “Curtain Falls” even became one of their notable hits.

Since “Curtain Falls” was the only single which became a hit from the compilation, I would like to share the song here. Check below and enjoy:

Curtain Falls (Chorus)
We’ll be ready when the curtain might fall
Feel my heart beating when the crowd calls
I gotta read between the lines
Cuz I’m living out the script of my life
Cuz we all got a part we must play
And I’ve done it but I’ve done it my way
I gotta read between the lines
Oohh (oohh)
In the script of my life

Atomic Kitten’s most successful hit from the album was “If You Come to Me”, a mid-tempo track from them. The follow-up made it to number 8. That’s why I would be sharing the girls’ biggest hit from the album which was “If You Come to Me”. Check the video below:

If You Come to Me (Chorus)
Do you know when you go when you give it all away
I’ll be there for you, care for you
Love you everyday oh baby

Everyday you’re away
And I feel a little low
I would cry for you, die for you
Just to let you know oh baby

I had chosen “Someone Like Me” to share since it is a new track from them. Enjoy the song below:

Someone Like Me (chosen lines from the song)
I know Its hard when you’re feeling down
To lift your feet up off the ground
We make mistakes but doesn’t everybody
You don’t always have to agree with someone like me
That’s the way it should be
Someone like me
