I used to love (still do) a single by John Foxx called 'Burning Car' which I remember buying as a kid. I don't remember him ever performing it on TOTP, but I thought it done well in the charts and was a decent sized hit?
I bought 'Burning Car' on 7" picture disc. I loved the song but the sound quality on the picture disc was poor, with too much surface noise.

It peaked at number 35 the week that TOTP returned after being off air for several weeks due to the Musicians Union strike and TOTP had a lot to cram in that week so it was (sadly) overlooked. Ironically, the following week Ultravox made their TOTP debut, performing 'Sleepwalk'.
