11 Best 90s One-Hit Wonders - 11 Points Countdown
written by Sam Greenspan

In this new episode of my web series, 11 Points Countdown, we're doing 90s music. Which, increasingly, has become my favorite genre of music. The timing is extraordinarily coincidental since Chumbawamba just broke up.

I'm joined by Angie Greenup (who's both a TV host and, because everyone thought it was strange we didn't acknowledge it last time she co-hosted, also my girlfriend).

If you enjoy, or even if you just think it might help Lou Bega make another hit, please take a moment to subscribe to my 11 Points Countdown YouTube channel. Thank you, as always, for your support.
