Make me sway



Ignoring as I have the hoo-ha over "Back To The Future 2 Day" and all that crap this week, our own little timewarp machine has instead deposited us back in this week in 2000.

Fifteen years ago, our news was occupied with the end of the tyranny of Slobodan Milošević in Serbia, repercussions arising from the Hatfield rail crash and continued killings in the Israel-Palestine conflict; the UK's wettest autumn in 200 years was underway (with worse to come!); we bade farewell to First Minister of Scotland Donald Dewar, Wembley Stadium and the BBC Nine O'Clock News (which moved to 10pm); and on the big screen were Billy Elliot, Meet the Parents and The Contender.

In the charts? Miss Aguilera, Steps, Macy Gray, Shania Twain, Moby, 911, Chemical Brothers, Ann Lee and ATB were all riding high - but sliding down the charts after a massively successful summer was this one...

It's Shaft and their classy re-working of (Mucho Mambo) Sway [and not-so-classy video]:



Ah, memories.
