Ultimate Countdown is a musical journey that takes you through six decades of
music. Join us as we travel backwards in time - starting in the 2010’s,
rewinding to the 1960’s and counting down the greatest hits of our time.
2010’s was the era where social media and YouTube change the way we get to hear
new music and the music from megastars of Pop like Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5 and Harry
Stiles was released.
you believe the year 2000 was 20 years ago?! Girls in rock had become a force to
recon with, with artists like Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry to
name a few, and let’s not forget the Soccer World Cup 2010 with songs like Waka
Waka and Wavin’ Flag
90s was best known for girl groups like Spice Girls, boy bands like Boyz II
Men, pop bands like Roxette and megastars like Jennifer Lopez and Ricky Martin.
rewind to the 1980s and we remember the movie themes like Dirty Dancing, Fame
and Footloose, icons like Lionel Ritchie, pop bands like Depeche Mode and Tears
for Fears. We also countdown our own local SA sounds of bands like Savuka,
Hotline and Mango Groove
the 70s we get our disco on with platform shoes and mirror balls and boogie to
songs from Bee Gees, Donna Summer and Le Freak.
And then we end our hits off in the Swinging 1960s - free love and flowers in our hair with songs from The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and CCR.
