I didn't notice thatRobbie wrote:This week's TOTP is my favourite edition so far this year. There wasn't a single song that I didn't like.
Did anyone notice that 'Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy' by Queen sounded like it was the output from the right speaker only? Some of the vocals and music were missing! It's strange as TOTP was broadcast in mono so shouldn't have had this problem.
I guess that would be those previously briefly interviewed brothers.....?Graham76man wrote:Next week a hyped record gets on TOTP

I can't recall (but see * below). I just remember when it was in the charts that I had seen an ad for the record a few months earlier and that it had been reviewed.Graham76man wrote:^Thanks for refreshing my memory Robbie
Do you remember if it was rated high or slammed in that Record Mirror review?

Jaunty basic Pop stomper with electronic voice effects.
I had forgotten that when the theme tune was ditched, the chart rundown initially wasn't right at the beginning.....although I think it moved back there fairly quickly!Blondini wrote:Last Whole Lotta Love opening credits.

I hadn't really got into buying singles in any great quantities at this stage in 1977. Although I had bought my first single in 1974 the amount I owned by this point in 1977 wasn't that much, at a guess it may have been about 30 in total (by 1985 it was over 3,000!).Graham76man wrote:And I purchased both records!
In fact I bought 10 of tonights tracks!!!

I didn't buy my first single till November 1988 (my 15th birthday) - Erasure's Christmas EP and Humanoid's Stakker Humanoid. My first record purchase was the Whitesnake 1987 album on cassette in January 1988. I was following the top 40 charts in 1985, though - an awesome year to start! Started to write them down every week from Jan 87, then started my own charts every week from Jan 93! I had grown dissatisfied with the sales chart by then. Don't know if they actually got worse or if it was just me growing up and honing my tastes. But i hardly ever listen to Whitesnake these days (or even Erasure who were my fave group for a couple of years).
