I've always opted for the later edition, Tele addict. I usually watch it at the weekend and then catch up on this forum's wonderful observations.

Drat!!! Loved that Korgis track. They really should have had Top of the Pops return with a 2 hours special and do a proper recap of the missed two months.

He certainly did Highlander. He did backing vocals if I recall. The B-side of 'Someday' was a track called 'Shake a Leg'. Another piece of class from the Brothers Wilson.

Agree Highlander. The Gap Band for me are the most underrated soul band in the entire history of music. So few hits and yet so many great tracks. Gap Band III is definitely their best work. This...

BIB. It was Mozart's 40th symphony : an absolute classic - if you pardon the pun. Even I as a glam rock loving 10 year old loved this piece of classical music. I also only recently discovered...

It certainly is. One of the most original chart toppers ever, I would say.

Yes a taste of things to come but ...:)

I've waited patiently for dance music to really take off in 1980 and it finally did so 2 months ago. Tonight's edition had its fair share of quality dance...

I would go as far as to say that Funkin' for Jamaica is my favourite single of 1980. One hit wonder though. Pity.

I know which one you mean Boz. It's Ok but maybe overplayed a bit. I honestly think they've done better. Killer on the Loose every time for me!

And again ... I agree. It was head and shoulders ( more product placement) above that rubbish I've just witnessed. Listen was on an Ep which played at 33 rpm ( a right pain ! )

They really were on form from 77-81. Hardly a duff single from Phil and the lads. Chinatown was much better than I recall. Might have to download that one.

He sings it well - but I still hate the song. In fact I hated every Orbison single bar one.

I'd go as far as to say it was the best dance record of the entire year and the second best 45. Still love it to this day. Double A side as well! Brilliant value for money.

I would agree with that. I'd have to wait another 2 years before buying another Elton single ( Blue Eyes). One year on and with the release of I'm Still Standing my faith was beginning to be restored.

To be honest, I only like the first minute of the song. The chorus badly lets the song down. But the introduction is highly impressive.

Don't agree. It has a better bass-line and is more of a dance track than its predecessor.
Much prefer it to DYD - but hey, not many will agree with me on this one. :D

I would say that last week's TOTP was a little disappointing. There was too much tosh : Logan, Subs, Rejects, Mash, Fialka and dare I put my head on the guillotine block and add Jonah to the list....
