2000: Life Is A Rollercoaster By Ronan Keating

Composed by Gregg Alexander and Rick Nowels. The song was originally written for American band New Radicals but was never recorded by the band due to Gregg Alexander (New Radicals frontman) deciding to break up the band. Irish singer Ronan Keating released his version in July 2000. This version debuted at No.1 in the UK and Ireland, becoming Ronan’s second No.1 single in both countries as a solo artist. The song was used in theĀ  film Head Over Heels and also as a promotional song for the American sitcom Friends. Genre: Pop.
