On this night in 2000 you were listening to... Samantha Mumba

A Friday flashback to get your weekend started…

CAST YOUR MIND back to June 2000. The Y2K hysteria had dissipated, and fears of millennium bugs had passed. We were ready to start living in the new century.

As summer began, Gotta Tell You was poised to take the top spot in Ireland for five weeks – and make Samantha Mumba a global superstar for an all too brief period.

Unfortunately our Sam would never top Gotta Tell You (as several catastrophic comeback attempts proved) but 14 years later it’s still a bona fide TUNE.
