        Denise LaSalle's surname kept changing in its spelling but, yes, for 'My Toot Toot' it was spelled as LaSalle rather than La Salle.

        For the 1985 chart entry of 'Rock Me Amadeus', it's difficult to be able to pinpoint which version of 'Rock Me Amadeus' is charting in September 1985 as the single was available in a variety of mixes which all have the same catalogue number. The 1985 entry is linking to the 1986 title credit as it appeared in Music Week (in 1986) simply due to the matching catalogue number.

            • Alexei Sayle 'Didn't You Kill My Brother' - would go on to chart in Australia in about 6 months time

              Stephanie Mills 'Bit By Bit' - US hit from the Fletch movie

              These didn't chart anywhere else -

              Carly Simon 'My New Boyfriend'

              Joan Armatrading 'Love By You'

                sorry - didn't make this clear

                her surname should be corrected

                HeeBeeGeeBees! Look how close they got! (Angus Deayton being one of them - originally a Bee Gees mickey take)
                Confusingly labelled with both their name and the acts they were pretending to be - Prince and Frankie. I think they were taking the mick with the label credit, as well - deliberately adding extra bracketed titles and a hyphen that weren't needed (and aren't on the sleeve).


                of the two, the Frankie one is better.

                Falco was in no rush to get up that chart!

                  radio was ignoring it (having played it on release) so i don't know what gave it such resilience
                  even Radio 2 were not playing it at this point

                  see Music Week pages 18 and 19 https://worldradiohistory.com/UK/Mus...1985-09-21.pdf

                  the reissue/repromotion of Take On Me was advertised in the previous issue - now up to 13 in the US chart

                  • The Hee Bee Gee Bees were great - so many spot-on parodies!

                    They really should have released their Springsteen parody as a single...

                    • Don't remember this version.

                      Medley - Glad All Over / Do You Love Me / Bits And Pieces - Mike Smith

                      Is this separate from the Dave Clark Five version?

                        It's a 1985 recording of three of the hits he sang / co-wrote (songs 1 and 3) while in DC5.

                            • Don't know if this has been mentioned before, but here's a trend I have noticed, most number one singles seem to peak in sales the week after they reach the top of the chart. Suspect the extra attention from reaching number 1 and promotion on TOTP etc would have been important factors. This includes the singles that spent just one week at the top. These particular singles were often replaced at number 1 by a strong seller that overtook it. I Got You Babe, There Must Be An Angel and Move Closer are examples of this trend.

                                Until the "peak in week 1" charts of the mid 90s to mid 00s, it was fairly common for a record to gain sales the week after it reached number 1. TOTP still attracted audiences of above 10m in the mid 1980s and this would have given the new number 1 a boost. Plus the record was usually still gaining traction and this would help drive sales further too.

                                  • Is Take On Me definitely new and not a re-entry of the earlier top 200 entry? (same catalogue number)

                                    Probably the best version of Behind The Mask that Eric Clapton later made a hit. Greg was on Clapton's version on keys.

                                    The song has a complicated history, of course https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behind_the_Mask_(song)

                                    Data was a synth act formed by Sailor's George Kajanus
                                    Flesh a pop band featuring Altered Images' Stephen Lironi

                                    • There was a third re-issue of Take On Me on 16 Sep 85, and so I took the view that it would most likely be that version charting.

                                        thanks

                                        now also in a gatefold picture sleeve with stills from the video. https://www.discogs.com/release/3997220-a-ha-Take-On-Me
                                        The original release had artwork from the video so it must have been out then - my earlier statement that it wasn't was not correct.
                                        It seems that their US label hammered promotion of the video and that's how it broke there.

                                          They really should have released their Springsteen parody as a single...


                                          This is so good!

                                          • Thanks for the reminder of The HBGBs and 'Radio Active'! My parents were keen so I often got to hear the shows whereas otherwise I mightn't have been aware of them at the time. They would always quote the line 'Meaningless Songs In High Voices' every time a Bee Gees song was aired on TV or radio, to the point where I ceased to find it funny, but after so long I'm heartened to find it now raises a chortle or two again. The Springsteen 'Bored With The USA' parody is genius, although I suspect the average typical American would not have seen the joke (which of course makes it all the more amusing)! I think they were a little harsh on Billy Idol though - okay perhaps not on him per se, as he was an arrogant perfumed ponce, but 'Eyes Without A Face' was too melodic in my estimation to be so churlishly dismissed as a 'Song Without A Tune'!

                                            The act of course included Philip Pope as well as the since-disgraced Angus Deayton, who was a highly-trained classical musician and went on to write and perform numerous themes for TV shows (as well as appearing in them), in the similar vein to Howard Goodall, though fortunately Pope takes himself far less seriously. People probably best know Pope and the other chap (Michael Fenton-Stevens) from the television equivalent of 'Radio Active' which appeared in 1990 under the name of 'KYTV' which was also pretty funny at the time. None of these credible humorous contributions though explain why 'The Chicken Song', which both had a hand in writing for Spitting Image in '86, was so supremely un-funny. I guess everyone has their off days and given it sold buckets I doubt they cared!

                                            • I liked The Chicken Song though Santa Claus Is On The Dole is better.
