The deluxe version of diana is fantastic, and the Chic mixes feature subtly different vocals from Ms Ross which, from everything I've read, were central to the tension between Chic and the great diva...

BIB1 - Diana Ross' collaboration with Chic was the diana album, not The Boss (that was her 1979 album with Ashford & Simpson). Although there are some great tracks on The Boss, I'd argue that diana...

It wasn't too cosy about what happened in the past, but everyone was obviously way more guarded about SCD vs TXF as it's ongoing, unlike raking over the embers of The Generation Game, Game For A...

I know what you're saying, but Kate's outfit for the chorus sections of that video did have a point - the song is about a wife testing her husband's loyalty by pretending to be a younger, sexier...

I agree also - I don't think either performances necessarily set the stage alight, but I'd take either of them over Lena Martell or The Ramblers ANY day. For me, 'Moonlight And Muzak' is quite...

There's no way the BBC could have withstood the constant wrath of Mary Whitehouse if they'd put Hot Gossip on TOTP. They worked for Kenny Everett, partly because of the tone of his show but also...

'Don't Bring Harry', along with its predecessor 'Nuclear Device', mark the start of the Stranglers struggling to make the Top 30 until 'Golden Brown' in 1982.

Storm's version of 'It's My House' was the only version of the song that made it to TOTP - but neither that nor the original cracked the Top 30.

I seem to recall that the battle of the 'It's My...

Of course the judges' scores are scripted to some extent. It's well documented that they get to see the rehearsals.

Of course the producers couldn't've known that Jake would fluff his AT - but they...

Being in EastEnders doesn't guarantee any kind of fan base - there have been plenty of actors from that show who've done SCD and haven't fared well.

Jake is not that dissimilar to Tom Chambers - he...

BIB - yes ... it reached number 84 on the Hot 100! :o Blondie were more consistently popular in the UK than the US - 'Atomic' only just scraped into the Top 40 there. :o

My recollection from the time is that 'Atomic' was seen as being to Eat To The Beat what 'Heart Of Glass' was to Parallel Lines and that may be why it was held back. Blondie had strong opinions,...

I'm pretty sure that the use of existing pop songs in commercials only really began in the 1980s with the Levi's adverts - we are still in the backwash of 'Jeans On' and similar attempts to turn...
