Deezer have this week released statistics after tracking streaming figures for the past 12 months relating to the top-selling tracks of 1996, which reveals reunion rumours surrounding Oasis and the Spice Girls allow 'Don't Look Back In Anger' and 'Wannabe' to make up two of the top five songs streaming in the past year from 1996 charts. Streams from these two singles alone make up an entire quarter of the total streams from the top 20 list.

96's one hit wonders such as Mark Morrison with 'Return Of The Mack' also fare surprisingly well as he sits at number three, with Peter Andre's 'Mysterious Girl' also finding its place in the top 10.

Fugees, Robert Miles, Toni Braxton, The Prodigy and Deep Blue Something all also find their place in the ranks, faring better than classics from big names such as Michael Jackson and Take That.

The top 20 streamed tracks of the past year from 1996 are as follows:

  1. Oasis - 'Don't Look Back In Anger'
  2. Fugees - 'Ready Or Not'
  3. Mark Morrison - 'Return Of The Mack'
  4. Spice Girls - 'Wannabe'
  5. Robert Miles - 'Children'
  6. Peter Andre (feat. Bubbler Ranx) - 'Mysterious Girl'
  7. Fugees - 'Killing Me Softly'
  8. Toni Braxton - 'Un-Break My Heart'
  9. The Prodigy - 'Firestarter'
  10. Deep Blue Something - 'Breakfast At Tiffany's'
  11. George Michael - 'Fast Love'
  12. Gina G - 'Ooh Aah... Just A Little Bit
  13. The Prodigy - 'Breathe'
  14. Babylon Zoo - 'Spaceman'
  15. Michael Jackson - 'Earth Song'
  16. Spice Girls - 'Say You'll Be There'

  19. 3T - 'Anything'
  20. Baddiel & Skinner and The Lightning Seeds - 'Three Lions'

Deezer's UK and Ireland Music Editor, Sam Lee comments: "Everything always has a way of coming back around, and we're seeing a huge resurgence with all things 90s at the moment. It's fascinating to see how certain songs fare with time, especially when the novelty hits that you'd expect to be a flash in a pan end up more popular 20 years later than the likes of Michael Jackson!"
