New Musical Express (NME)  is a British music journalism magazine published since 1949.  It is largely associated with rock, alternative and indie music.  It was the first British paper to include a singles chart, in the edition of 14 November 1952.  In the 1970s it became the best-selling British music newspaper.  During the period 1972 to 1976, it was particularly associated with gonzo journalism (self-involved reporting), then became closely associated with punk rock through the writings of Julie Burchill, Paul Morley and Tony Parsons.  It started as a music newspaper, and gradually moved toward a magazine format during the 1980s and 1990s, changing from newsprint in 1998.  (More from Wikipedia)

The Deee-Lite song Groove is in the Heart was a truly mountainous hit; as Wikipedia tells it: “Slant magazine ranked the song second in its 100 Greatest Dance Songs list, adding: ‘No song delivered the group’s world-conscious Word as colorfully and open-heartedly as Groove is in the Heart, which flew up the Billboard charts while goosing stuffed shirts.’ NME and The Village Voice’s Pazz & Jop annual critics’ poll named ‘Groove is in the Heart’ the best single released in the year 1990.”
