Don't reply to him. He'll get bored eventually.

And wasn't it terrible! I am a lover of 80s music, but I also like much of the current stuff in the charts, but I am astonished as to how little of the music from around 1992 has actually held up over time.

I had to bail out before the end (telephone!) but dance music from that era was heavily acid-house influenced and painfully repetitive. I now realise why the Shamen were so popular at the time - best of a bad bunch. Also got to see how ridiculously over-rated some of the rock and indie acts from that time were as well.

The Dance Chart was great, I can't believe I'd forgotten all about the Poing record.

I loved Felix "It Will Make Me Crazy", they only showed a brief clip during the rundown but You Tube came to the rescue.

I'm not sure really, he didn't say anthing on this thread I'd have thought would get him banned. Maybe it was something he posted elsewhere in the forums (if it was, it's been deleted now, though).

There were a load of weak dance-pop tunes around that year, and quite a few of them were in today's show - Rage, Undercover, The Shamen (although I quite liked Boss Drum)...

It also showed just how wrong The Chart Show sometimes was in predicting the big future hits, as the Lionel Richie song was billed as 'tipped for the Christmas No1 spot' yet a glimpse in my British Hit Singles book revealed that it crawled its way to No52.

Their exclusives & Hotshots often flopped. Watch any edition and you'll usually find at least one song which didn't even make top 40. Still it was a chance to see & hear the music that most radio stations and MTV (in the days it was a decent channel and PLAYED MUSIC) wouldn't touch.

Yes, I remeber the chart show. I used to watch it from 1989 - 1998 and it was the best programme ever. The Top Ten chart always differed from the proper chart. I would love to see this programme again but I don't have sky. Also the chart show videos you have uploaded on YouTube are great keep up the good work James2001.

This article is about Twix sponsering the chart show. I didn't know that for the first few months after the pepe jeans sponsership the chart show had no sponsership.

Sorry about today, I was having a filling done at the Dentist, and I won't be in tonight either. So unless one of you has worked it out, I won't be able to give you the date of this week's edition until Thursday.

Saturday, 22 February, 1997, today, and what a really poor time for music. Apart from Sash!, I usually like the Dance Chart editions most, but that week was awful.

I watched it today. Some of the music was absolutely dire. Especially the band that claimed that Andrew Lloyd Webber and Noel Gallagher came to see them at the same show. They were just dreadful.

Still, it beats the crap in the charts today. In fact, the charts mean so much to me, I have no idea who is Number One, and haven't done so in months because I am so edgy and alternative.

Don't ask us. How are we supposed to know? We didn't work on the show.
