2000s No2s

00s1The most prolific decade so far for No2 Hits, with 208

Madonna, Cliff Richard and Kylie Minogue continued to increase their tallies of No2 Hits.

As music became more accessible to the buying public, the number of different singles making the charts also increased.

This led to a far more competitive chart, and as digital music became the norm, rather than the exception, buyers were no longer constrained by the availability of a physical medium such as vinyl, CD or cassette.

Adele’s second single release was a 2008 No2 ‘’Chasing Pavements’.  She has now had 3 No2s; 2010’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’ and 2012’s ‘Skyfall’.

00s2The song was inspired by an incident Adele had with a former boyfriend of six months. At 6am, after learning he had cheated on her, she went to the bar he was at and punched him in the face. After being thrown out, Adele walked down the street alone and thought to herself, "What is it you're chasing? You're chasing an empty pavement."  She sang and recorded it on her mobile phone and arranged the chords when she got home.
