I built and ran this website between 2000 and 2001, combining passion for popular music and programming. It was listed by MTV's now defunct MusicNewswire as one of the then nascent web's top twenty sources, alongside Billboard and VH1. The most exciting part of it — for a 13/14-year-old excited by new music — was receiving scores of pre-release CDs from record companies. The entire project was written entirely from scratch (frameworks and libraries were not the norm back then!) in PHP linking to a MySQL database, with HTML as well as a little CSS and JavaScript for the frontend; the code is available here.

Toploader - Only For A While
5 April 2001 | 0:00:00 GMT/UTC

Only For A While is the new single from Toploader, from the album Onka's Big Moka. It's a bit slower than the bands' last single Dancing In The Moonlight.

The ballad is backed by a cover of The Supremes' 1966 hit You Keep Me Hanging On, the band decided to include the track after playing it at the TFI christmas show and getting a great response. Also on the CD version are the names of 10,000 of the bands' fans, the names can be read by putting the CD in your CD-ROM drive. I can't see any good reason for this.

Not a bad track though, better than the last single.
