    A*Teens - 'Upside Down' and beyond, the story of Sweden's teen pop icons

    A*Teens - 'Upside Down' and beyond, the story of Sweden's teen pop icons

    Joel and David are summoning every remaining ounce of "Teen Spirit" within for this absolute floor-filler of an episode. Our 2000s pop explorers are jumping into A*Teens, the iconic Swedish pop group who made their mark halfway around the world from Stockholm to Singapore, Mexico City to Malibu and... Romford!Originally formed as a new generation ABBA tribute group, the "ABBA-Teens" quickly evolved to A*Teens and became artists in their own right, releasing four studio albums and selling millions of records worldwide.Thanks to eternally effervescent bangers like 'Upside Down', 'Halfway Around The World', 'Floorfiller' and 'Can't Help Falling In Love', the A*Teens were the moment on Radio Disney and Nickelodeon in the early 2000s - they even toured the States with legends like Britney and *NSYNC! Superfan Joel takes David on a celebratory lap of the A*Teens' albums - "Teen Spirit", "Pop 'Til You Drop!" and "New Arrival" - before wrapping up their journey with the "Greatest Hits" and a recap of Marie Serneholt, Sara Lumholdt, Dhani Lennevald and Amit Paul's careers after the band split. This is an essential listen for anyone nostalgic for the magical, bubblegum teen-pop of the 2000s! Follow Right Back At Ya!

    Kylie Minogue - "Light Years"

    Kylie Minogue - "Light Years"

    Please fasten your seatbelts. Our names are Joel and David, and we'll be your 2000s pop guide. Join us on this fabulous journey flying back 21 years to celebrate Kylie Minogue's iconic "Light Years" album!

    After a 'dead edgeh' and experimental indie phase in the 90s, our Aussie legend made the comeback of all comebacks in 2000 with a return to her pop roots.The glamorous disco and Eurodance-flavoured "Light Years" reignited Kylie's career and set her on a path to becoming dance-pop royalty in the new century. 

    From the now iconic gold hot pants in the Studio 54 fizzed 'Spinning Around' (shout out Paula Abdul!) to the Y2K(ylie) anthem of 'On A Night Like This', which became the heartbeat of national pride around the 2000 Sydney Olympics... the moments kept coming.

    Joel and David share their individual journeys into the Kylie fandom and faves from this album - from the modern queer classic 'Your Disco Needs You' to 'Please Stay', and 'Loveboat'. Plus, they pick highlights from her dazzling UK and Australian "On A Night Like This" Tour. 

    This nostalgia packed celebration feels especially fitting following Kylie's recent return to form with 2020's "DISCO" album, so take a breath and take the plunge, my dear!

    For a handful of years, Gwen ruled the charts.
