    Heh, were they still around? Iglesias cover i'd imagine?
    BZN were active until 2007, so I'm not sure what you mean by that....

      I had no idea, always thought of them as some 70s / early 80s band, since I recall them from my parents' album collection when I was a kid, together with ABBA, Boney M, Baccara and the likes.
      Let's have a second referendum

        I never heard the European version... I'm from Germany and I only know the "UK version".
        Haven't heard it in a while though, but still love it.
        edit: I just noticed it was only a #14 in my chart back then... what a shame! :-?

        Yep, those indeed were released at the end of 1993.
        My year end chart of 1994 contained lots of songs from 1993/1992 as it was the first year I made a personal chart... at the age of ten

        • Despite what CZB stated about updating the link for MC Sar & Real McCoy's "Runaway" to be the UK audio, the version above is STILL the so-called "European" version.

          The audio on this this video is almost identical to the UK Airplay Edit. I'm very interested, AshDeluxe, to know if THIS is the version that was played on the radio in Germany, rather than the other so-called "European" version.

          That "unreleased" version of the video reminds me somewhat of Chicane's video for "Don't Give Up".

            Their last single was Number 1 on the very first monthly chart posted in this thread, as it happens!

              You must have clicked the original link to the "European version" that I retained on the left ( RUN AWAY ) - I added the one for the UK version on the right of this ( MC Sar and the Real McCoy )!

              Although I have only listened to the beginning of the version on that link, it does sound similar to the UK version one that I posted.

              Unless I'm getting it confused with one of their other releases - or something different altogether! - I think the "European version" was originally played there, but maybe they then switched to the "UK version" when that became available. It wasn't a hit in Germany until the summer of 1994.

              This page illustrates and lists the content of two quite different CD single releases, but unfortunately doesn't specify where or when each was released. Perhaps, in the German-speaking countries, they both were - but the European version flopped, then the UK version was the hit?

              • I think that "european" version was never released in Germany. I only heard the other version on the radio and it was also on the Bravo Hits in late summer 1994. In UK the song was only released at the beginning of 1995, so German radio didn't switch that late...

                • Almost a day earlier than usual - as I'll be busy compiling the UKmixParade this evening! - here comes my brand new monthly chart.....

                  Fifteen tracks move down my chart this time - and last month’s number one only just misses out on being the fastest faller. [b:1bgzsjyg]Ellie Goulding[/b:1bgzsjyg]’s “Starry Eyed” dives fourteen places to number 24, while [b:1bgzsjyg]Bananarama[/b:1bgzsjyg] topple all the way from the top to number 14. Replacing “Love Don’t Live Here” is the second chart-topper for [b:1bgzsjyg]Lady GaGa[/b:1bgzsjyg], as “Alejandro (Don’t Call My Name)” moves up three places from its number four entry position. “Poker Face” was my number one for two months last year - but matching that may prove difficult, as there are strong challengers close behind. Among fourteen other climbers, the Rapid Riser bubbles up twelve places to number two for [b:1bgzsjyg]The Swiss[/b:1bgzsjyg] - and [b:1bgzsjyg]Caro Emerald[/b:1bgzsjyg] steps up nine places to number three with the most successful Dutch hit so far of 2010, “A Night Like This”. That’s one of four former Chartbusters dropping down in July, but now ascending again - and all four are by acts who also have a new entry in the top forty. Hers is “That Man”, in at 30 - while [b:1bgzsjyg]Dash Berlin[/b:1bgzsjyg]’s former number one “Waiting” is back up three places to number 12, and “Never Cry Again” becomes a second hit from the album “New Daylight”, entering at 32. Two places lower, [b:1bgzsjyg]Edward Maya and Vika Jigulina[/b:1bgzsjyg] arrive with “This Is My Life” - as “Stereo Love”, now the longest laster, rebounds four places to number 23 after nine months in the chart. And as [b:1bgzsjyg]Agnes[/b:1bgzsjyg] moves back up three places to number 13 with “On And On” - partly due to the French version “On Se Donne” - she matches her UK peak with “I Need You Now”. This is new at number 40 - entirely on the strength of the “Moonwalker version”, which has more recently been a hit in Belgium.

                  Two former hits re-enter my top forty - “Something’s Jumping In Your Shirt” improves by one place on its original number 38 peak for [b:1bgzsjyg]Malcolm McLaren[/b:1bgzsjyg], who died earlier this year, while [b:1bgzsjyg]Eddi Reader[/b:1bgzsjyg] and [b:1bgzsjyg]Fairground Attraction[/b:1bgzsjyg] return seven places below the previous number 21 peak of the UK number one “Perfect”. Its reappearance is due to an Irish version, “Foirfe”, which is a regular filler in the Raidio RiRa broadcasts of “Ireland’s Official Top Forty”.....and indeed has just begun to play again as I type this, ahead of the top five in tonight’s programme!! The third highest of seven new entries reached number one in the Netherlands back in 1982 - although it had originally been released elsewhere a year earlier. “Aurora” by [b:1bgzsjyg]Nova[/b:1bgzsjyg] now makes an extremely belated debut, at number 21. Three notches higher, last month’s Chartbuster from [b:1bgzsjyg]Amatorski[/b:1bgzsjyg], “Come Home”, is the second highest newcomer - but another major contender for September’s number one must be the current UK best-seller, and continental smash, for Australians [b:1bgzsjyg]Sylvester Martinez[/b:1bgzsjyg], [b:1bgzsjyg]Johnson Peterson[/b:1bgzsjyg] and [b:1bgzsjyg]Duncan MacLennan[/b:1bgzsjyg]. “We No Speak Americano”, by [b:1bgzsjyg]Yolanda Be Cool featuring D-Cup[/b:1bgzsjyg], becomes the highest-ever climber in my extended chart - racing up 120 places to enter the top forty at number five.

                  [b:1bgzsjyg]Katie Melua[/b:1bgzsjyg]’s first success in my top forty was “The Closest Thing To Crazy”, from her 2003 album “Call Off The Search”. Four more hits followed - and she could be about to have up to three more. “The Flood“, the first single from her latest album, is among eleven new breakers this month, along with two rather stronger tracks from that album - “A Moment Of Madness” and “A Happy Place”. Also now with three of the top forty breakers is [b:1bgzsjyg]Inna[/b:1bgzsjyg], a graduate from the [b:1bgzsjyg]Lasgo[/b:1bgzsjyg] academy of one-word song-titles, adding “Amazing” to “Hot” and “Love” - while [b:1bgzsjyg]Amy MacDonald[/b:1bgzsjyg] goes one better, as “This Pretty Face” joins “Poison Prince”, “Don’t Tell Me That It’s Over” and “Spark” as yet another potential future hit. With two current top forty entries already, Caro Emerald could be about to add a third with “Back It Up”; [b:1bgzsjyg]Example[/b:1bgzsjyg] is looking for a second hit with “Kickstarts”; and [b:1bgzsjyg]Swedish House Mafia[/b:1bgzsjyg], [b:1bgzsjyg]Right Face[/b:1bgzsjyg] and [b:1bgzsjyg]Party Harders vs Subs[/b:1bgzsjyg] could all soon chart for the first time. But the new Chartbuster, guaranteed a top forty entry in September, is for a Dutch act who had seven hits in my chart in the late nineties and early noughties. After a long absence, they returned to the top 40 in Holland this month. Unfortunately, due to rather poor airplay, they could only climb three places higher than their number 24 entry, despite being in the sales top ten. Is the rest of the world ready for the second coming of the [b:1bgzsjyg]Vengaboys[/b:1bgzsjyg]? My Record of the Month for August 2010, featuring interjections by [b:1bgzsjyg]Perez Hilton[/b:1bgzsjyg], is [b:1bgzsjyg]“Rocket To Uranus”[/b:1bgzsjyg].

                      Hi Czb,
                      An instrumental who was a big hit in 1982.
                      Is the song having a revival or is it used in a commercial,anyway great to see it back at #22.

                        No, I don't think so - I just heard a little of it for the first time ever during Erik de Zwart's top ten countdown in an edition of Radio Veronica's "Top 40 Hit Dossier" covering a week of 1982, a few weeks ago.

                        It would only have been a few months after its success in Holland that I first started to listen to the Dutch chart shows every week - at that time, the Tros Top 50 with Ferry Maat on Thursdays and the Nederlandse Top 40 with Lex Harding on Fridays!

                                • [quote="I":12lrlvr8]The third highest of seven new entries reached number one in the Netherlands back in 1982 - although it had originally been released elsewhere a year earlier.[/quote:12lrlvr8]

                                  So there is the first randomly-chosen year for this month's trips back in time - as I spent five hours today revisiting my charts of twenty-eight years ago. Top 100s of other years have required six hours - but records were typically a bit shorter back then than now, and unfortunately a dozen of them are too obscure to be available on YouTube. Some of those are even by acts other than Brendan Shine!!

                                  I had discovered most of the music in my monthly charts in the early part of the year in the Sunday afternoon and evening Ireland and UK chart countdowns, presented by Larry Gogan and Tommy Vance. I was probably spending most of the rest of the week studying for the "A" Levels I was to sit in May and June, a few weeks before my 18th birthday. But later on in 1982, I began a three-year degree at university - and discovered the charts of the Netherlands, including the Europarade. So continental successes started to reach my chart too - and would continue to appear, to excess, for many more years!

                                  As usual, some hits emerged from my television viewing - and, in particular, it should be noted that Channel Four began broadcasting in November of this year. In my top 100 of 1982 there are a few tracks from its programmes.......and even from the commercial-free breaks of those opening months! The Eurovision Song Contest provides a few entries, of course - including one of the best winners ever, performed by an artist who takes four of my top ten placings of the year, but would not reach number one in my chart until a decade later. Further down, there seem to be quite a few songs that might be described as "novelty" in nature - including some versions of a track that appears five times in the bottom half of the top 100!

                                  Here, then, is the complete countdown of my favourites from 1982:

                                      These foolish games are tearing me apart

                                      • You prefer Blancmange's Waves (1983 hit on a 1982 album) to Living On The Ceiling? Great track anyway. ABBA's The Day Before You Came was of course covered by Blancmange in 84! Both versions should have been bigger (than 32 and 22 respectively).

                                        Brookside Theme was by Steve Wright (NOT that one!) and Dave Roylance. Makes me feel all nostalgic when i hear it - the show was revolutionary - the CHANNEL was revolutionary! Did you know they nearly released a vocal version of it as a single - by Dana? Not sure when exactly but i think it would have been a step too far for the show and channel's cool image, here she is on a chat show (can't believe i never saw/ knew about this at the time!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UG6rDc4XQOQ
                                        The original theme wasn't a single, was it? I've not read of one.

                                        I heard the full Channel Four Theme a while back - never knew it was a single till then! Doesn't quite work stretched to four minutes! Not like The Bill Theme (Overkill) by Morgan Pask (Pask being a guy from Landscape; #99 in February 1985! Unlike this which never charted at all.)

                                        Cheers Theme makes me gulp a bit, too. They don't make shows like that any more.

                                        Haysi Fantaysee was nuts! (and not really in a good way). Jeremy Healy went on to be a top DJ/ producer/ star. Shoofly Love was a 1983 album track (charted Feb 83, prob 82 credit on sleeve).

                                        Never liked Taco's version of ...Ritz since i heard it via Shiny Toy Guns. It should never have been synthed up. You can keep his other cover versions, too.

                                        The Firm was fun (but not as good as Star Trekkin'!)

                                        Clannad great (who'd have thought such a tune would be big??)

                                        Bow Wow Wow fantastic! Now that's the type of NUTS i like!

                                        Fun Boy Three great.
                                        Branigan, Eddy, Blondie (OF COURSE!).

                                        Ruff Mix by WonderDog! (#31 peak)
                                        A creation of producer Harry Thumann who had a #41 hit in late 81 with Underwater.
                                        I'd known of this but i'm not sure if i heard it before! It's so awful but strangely addictive!
                                        *it's confusing the crap out of my dog right now!*
                                        Simon Cowell used to dress up as WonderDog to promote it!
                                        ^I saw this on Before They Were Famous!

                                        Trio's Da Da Da was great (though i preferred the aforementioned Landscape who were similar and hit the year before).

                                        Phoebe Cates was actually in a Blue Lagoon rip-off film AND sung the theme tune??
                                        Thanks to you, i just Googled and saw all i need to see from that film. Nice booty, shame they used her as a prostitute, basically.
                                        Look at the trailer for it! "As their bodies grew strong and beautiful, so did their love"
                                        Her co-star was a one Willie Aames!
                                        She was mega-cute in Gremlins.

                                        McLaren was a thieving pioneer (if such a thing makes sense!) Buffalo Gals with The World's Famous Supreme Team, BTW. His records were very much team efforts, he usually just came up with an idea and got other people to compose it!

                                        There was a group called Time Bandits?
                                        Terry Gilliam's awesome film is inifinitely better!

                                        Schilling great, Bucks Fizz good, APPALLED that your 18-yr old self barely cared for House Of Fun and the
                                        wonderful Sign Of The Times. :-?
                                        Then again, not a sniff of Bananarama, so The Belle Stars did well, i suppose!

                                          That video for "Lass Mich Nicht Allein" is a very good illustration of what can happen when you let someone come on stage to present a posy of flowers during a performance!

                                          I have two different 7" singles including it, which give this duo a composers' credit, but don't specifically identify any performers (although I'm sure it was also them!). The earlier one has the theme from another Mersey Television series on the B-side - I can't remember its title! - and might have only been available direct from them. The second was a double-A-side with "Free George Jackson", credited to "Blazing Saddles". I believe that one got a wider release, but didn't trouble the charts.

Not sure when exactly but i think it would have been a step too far for the show and channel's cool image, here she is on a chat show (can't believe i never saw/ knew about this at the time!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UG6rDc4XQOQ
                                          I'm not sure that a single of that song was ever seriously considered. I remember seeing it performed by Dana in a short Channel Four series of programmes, each showcasing a different female singer, probably not more than a year or two after "Brookside" began. Another edition featured Hazel O'Connor, in which she performed "Eighth Day" in similar style, quite different from the hit single version! For years, I have had no recollection of what that series was called - but comments on that YouTube version strongly suggest it was "Ladybirds". That video, however, is from possibly the only other time ths song was sung on television - an ITV edition of the Mike Yarwood show - mainly impressions, but probably more musical guests that used to be featured when he was with the BBC. It is on a DVD compilation I picked up cheaply a while ago, for less than half the best price currently showing here. Another musical oddity included in that set is the "Fame" song "Star Maker", sung by.....the Nolan Sisters!

                                          That was one of several tracks in my 1982 top 100 that I first heard in one of the occasional "Top of the Pops" segments about the Europarade, presented by Jonathan King and John Peel. Those featured by Trio, F.R. David and Boys Town Gang all went on to become top ten hits in the UK (indeed, I recall Simon Bates saying, as they returned to the studio, something along the lines of "We reckon that if that Trio record was released in the UK, it could be number one here too!", and he was almost right!) but it didn't help Phoebe Cates to chart in the UK, nor the Dolly Dots. Louise Tucker did get a UK hit with her song - but it only reached number 59.

                                          Yes indeed - a Dutch group who had several hits in the Netherlands, but maybe not much further afield, in the mid-1980s. "I'm Specialised in You" was their biggest there, but I much preferred "Listen..." and "Endless Road" - the latter being, I think, the only one released in the UK.

                                          Although "House Of Fun" was the only UK number one by Madness, I thought three of their other singles were far superior. My favourite was "The Return Of The Los Palmas Seven" - a number two in my chart.

                                          The first Bananarama single I liked was "Love In The First Degree" in 1987 - and five or six years later they got to number one in my chart with "Last Thing On My Mind" - but only matched that peak a few months ago, with "Love Don't Live Here".

                                            So what year is the Dana clip from?

                                            Further cast changes during 1983 saw the arrival of the Jackson family. Both Gavin and Petra Taylor departed Brookside early in the year. Gavin was the first casualty of the soap, dying from a brain haemorrhage, and Petra committed suicide a few months later, having disappeared from the Close in mysterious circumstances. Petra’s sister, Marie Jackson (Anna Keaveney), her husband George (Cliff Howells) and their twin boys (Gary and ‘little’ George) moved into Number 10. They became central to Brookside’s highest profile storyline yet, when George was wrongly convicted of a warehouse robbery. In a bold move, the plotline was leaked to the tabloid press, and as Marie Jackson began the Free George Jackson campaign on-screen, the press followed, creating huge levels of media hype similar to those seen when US soap Dallas featured the ‘Who shot J.R.?’ plot of 1980, and Crossroads leaked the motel fire storyline of November 1981. Viewing figures rose as the hype continued; a record called “Free George Jackson” by Blazing Saddles was released, and merchandise was produced, including T-shirts and posters. Even though the storyline ultimately had a low-key conclusion (Cliff Howells who played George resigned and George Jackson stayed in prison), the plot helped Brookside on the pathway to success, particularly when the Corkhills arrived to replace the departed Jackson family in September 1985.
                                            I was only an occasional watcher till 87 so i'll have had no knowledge of this record. Who was on it?

                                              This is surprising, but her two television performances of the "Brookside" theme were in the same year, 1984. The clip is from a special called "It's Mike Yarwood" - the DVD set indicates it was from that year, and a book I have, "Radio Times Guide To Television Comedy" says it aired on 9th May 1984. Whereas this page about the works of Muriel Young would seem to confirm that the Channel Four series must indeed have been "Ladybirds" - it lists nine other female singers also spotlighted, apart from Dana and Hazel O'Connor. I don't recall seeing any other editions, much as I would have liked to in some cases! ......Actually, thinking back about it now, I might have seen the one featuring Bonnie Tyler. Some of these were apparently in 1983 - but others, including the one on Dana, were 1984.

                                              In the "Brookside" storyline, the song was composed by the sons of Marie Jackson's friend Betty Hughes [Paula Tilbrook] - Mike [Dean Williams] and John [Stephen Lloyd]. The lads were seen vaguely creating/strumming it a little, but the song was never actually performed in any television episodes (In contrast with, for example, Nick Berry's song in EastEnders and Kate Robbins' in "Crossroads"!) But I'm fairly sure that at least one of the "Brookside" reference books mentions that the record was just done by session singers.

                                                • Yes indeed - she only appeared in nine episodes (227, 228, 231-233, 235-237 and 240), from the end of 1984 until February 1985, as confirmed by the Brookside Guide - several years before she began as another Betty in "Emmerdale".
