BIIGTHINGS IN 1998

Blair & Co’s New Labour surged into of­fice in 1997 on the back of a land­slide GE vic­tory, bring­ing a youth­ful vigour and op­ti­mism that peaked in 1998 – it was down­hill from there.

Some think 1998 was all about Brit­pop and Blur v Oa­sis, but by then it was his­tory; 1998’s best-sell­ing sin­gle was Be­lieve by Cher, the big­gest al­bum was The Corrs’ Talk On Cor­ners. Rob­bie Williams shot his bolt early, re­leas­ing Mil­len­nium two years (or three) too early.

Bruce Willis and Ben Af­fleck’s as­ter­oid­abus­ing yarn Ar­maged­don was the year’s big­gest film, with Shav­ing Ryan’s Pri­vates com­ing a close sec­ond. Any­one re­mem­ber Spice­world?

Thirty years of hurt? Eng­land went out of the World Cup in France on penal­ties in the last 16. The World Cup is a four-yearly com­pe­ti­tion for foot­ball fans.
