On Friday 26 January 2024 at 9.00pm, BBC FOUR’s “Top of the Pops” will delight viewers as it opens its vaults to showcase and celebrate the biggest performances from 1991 in an episode titled “1991 Biggest Hits.” This compilation promises to be a treat for music enthusiasts, offering a glimpse into the popular sounds that defined that year.

As we explore the musical landscape of 1991, viewers will be treated to massive pop hits by iconic artists such as Right Said Fred, Color Me Badd, and Chesney Hawkes. Each act left an indelible mark on popular culture with their catchy tunes and energetic performances.

Seal takes center stage during his solo career with his breakout hit “Crazy,” showcasing his extraordinary talent as both a singer and performer. Mariah Carey’s stunning vocal range is also on display—an attribute that would propel her to international superstardom in years to come.

James captivates audiences with their anthem “Sit Down”—a track that not only resonated with listeners but also became emblematic of the era.

Throughout this collection, viewers will witness many more signs and sounds of those times: Crystal Waters brings infectious dance beats while The Mock Turtles provide indie melodies indicative of the alternative rock scene. Oleta Adams delivers soulful ballads while Nomad offers irresistible house-inspired grooves.

The lineup wouldn’t be complete without Cathy Dennis—a standout figure representing the strong presence of British pop music within this timeframe—alongside PM Dawn who brought their unique blend of rap and R&B flavors into mainstream consciousness.

Additionally, Massive Attack adds their distinct trip-hop soundscapes into this mix alongside eclectic contributions from The KLF—one can expect surprises abound when it comes to these genre-bending pioneers. And let us not forget about Nirvana—the band’s one-off appearance on Top of the Pops marks an unexpected moment in television history, showcasing the impact of their raw and alternative sound.

Fans can also expect a special performance by Bryan Adams with his timeless ballad “Everything I Do.” This single made such an impact that it seemed to be in permanent rotation as the show transitioned from Television Centre to Elstree—becoming synonymous with the program’s legacy.
