NUMBER ONE ON THIS DAY
July 25, 1999
Ricky Martin - Livin' La Vida Loca: Do you remember when Ricky Martin ruled the world? Well he did, briefly, and Livin' La Vida Loca gave him his biggest hit when it rocketed to the top of the charts in the summer of 1999.
It transformed the way Irish people danced. Girls went all flamenco while the boys simply bent their knees and jigged that little bit faster. The song won more awards than you can shake a stick at.
Ricky released his autobiography, Me, in 2010, if you want to find out what happened in his life thereafter.
