On this night in 1991 you were listening to... Do the Bartman

A Friday Flashback to get your weekend started

ON THIS NIGHT in 1991, you were probably listening to Do the Bartman – and you were possibly tiring of it just a little, as by then it had been in the charts for six weeks.

Those were different times, my friend: When cartoon characters could release a single and have it sit at the top of the charts for more than two months.


Looking at the video now, while visually it’s a bit rough around the edges, musically it’s still miles better than One Direction.

That’s because it was written by none other than… Michael Jackson.
