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.

Coldplay's Debut Album Set For Number One
12 July 2000 | 0:00:00 GMT/UTC

Coldplay are set to top the UK album chart this week with their debut album, Parachutes which features their top five single Yellow. A HMV spokesman told nme.com earlier this week that he expects the album to sell 60,000 copies in the first week.

Over in the singles chart, Ronan Keating's Life Is A Rollercoaster is apparently selling four times as many copies as its closest rival from The Corrs.
