What Does Michael Jackson, Wet Wet Wet and Lion King Have In Common? 1 Clue… It’s Throwback Thursdays

Michael-Jackson-Dancing-MoonwalkIt’s been five years this week since Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, died. Premiere One rewinds back 20 years, exploring the anniversary of five events in contemporary culture, that made an imprint on the fabric of time .

We were listening to:

Ten years ago, Britney Spears moved to the top of the charts with her hauntingly beautiful ‘Everytime.’ The track was far removed from anything Britney had ever released as the delicacy of her vocals showed a vulnerability that no one had seen in her before.


Twenty years ago Wet, Wet, Wet were holding the number one spot with their classic ‘Love Is All Around.’ Marti Pellow soon became a sex symbol and the song gained them international success. All together now: “I feel it in my fingers….”


We were watching:

Ten years ago, the ultimate chick flick was released. With Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams taking the lead roles, ‘The Notebook’ sucked every viewer into the romance and heartbreak of it all. If you don’t cry when you 200406-the-notebookwatch this movie then you’re more than likely a robot.

Twenty years ago, children everywhere learned what Hakuna Matata was. “It means no worries, for the rest of your days.” Disney released one of their most popular animations with ‘The Lion King’ becoming the highest grossing motion picture of 1994. It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since Lion King IMufassa and Simba were betrayed by Scar – the pain doesn’t get any easier.

We were talking about:

This week can’t go by without remembering the life and death of Michael Jackson. Exactly five years ago, the King of Pop passed away unexpectedly. Friends, family and millions of fans were heartbroken as the tragic news broke. Michael was gearing up for one final tour but sadly the pressure was too much and the shows never went ahead. Five years on, Jackson’s legacy is still going strong as his posthumous ‘Xscape’ album has been released with lead single ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ featuring Justin Timberlake receiving rave reviews.
