I'm thinking about discontinuing these conclusion posts, because I put off writing this one for so long. Much as I've enjoyed revisiting some of the tracks from 1996, I can't really say I've learnt a huge amount from the experience, except for the factoids I looked up on Wikipedia about individual songs, and if any of that seemed worth posting I posted it at the time. Still, I'm relieved that I wasn't embarrassed by much of the Britpop stuff I liked at the time.
The next album is due to start on Monday. In keeping with my self-imposed rule, it will be from a different decade. In the meantime I'm going to try and post something on the Hit Parade blog. Brace yourselves, etc.
