The summer of 1999 was a musical paradise, filled with infectious beats and unforgettable melodies. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and explore the official top 40 songs that ruled the airwaves during that scorching season.

9pm (Till I Come) – ATB ft. Yolanda Riviera

Kicking off our list is the electrifying debut track from renowned German DJ and producer, Andre Tenneberger. For the vocals, he enlisted the talented Spanish model, Yolanda Riviera, whose captivating performance had been previously showcased on a TV appearance. Interestingly, the song’s title, ‘9pm’, was born out of a studio mishap where the initial draft of the track ran overtime.

9pm (Till I Come) quickly became a club sensation, making waves across Europe and securing a spot in the top 10 charts. It even made history as the first trance song to claim the coveted number one spot on the Official Singles Chart. The UK was particularly enchanted by the track, with import sales alone propelling it into the Official Singles Chart Top 100 multiple times from March to June. Ultimately, it spent a glorious two weeks at the pinnacle before being dethroned by Ricky Martin’s iconic hit, Livin’ La Vida Loca.
