Oliver: Rum & Black - Wicked (28 November 1991)
I didn't listen to Radio 1on the day that Robin Williams died. I'm sure that if any of their DJs played a musical tribute, it would have been Williams's performance of Blame Canada from the South Park movie which was nominated for Best Song at the 1999 Oscars. However, I hope someone with a long memory pulled out this slice of breakbeat brilliance from the Hackney based dance duo, Rum & Black. It's an equally fitting tribute, I promise you.
Lost out to Phil Collins, natch - The Oscars really do suck, don't they?
