Top Of The Pops

Tonight, episode 1063:

19/07/84 (Presented by Peter Powell and Richard Skinner)
(28) The Mighty Wah! – “Come Back”
(05) Prince – “When Doves Cry” (video)
(33) Billy Idol – “Eyes Without A Face”
(30) The Kane Gang – “The Closest Thing To Heaven”
(39) Blancmange – “The Day Before You Came”
( Charts 40 - 26 - Richard Skinner )
(26) Divine – “You Think You’re A Man”
( Charts 25 - 11 - Peter Powell )
(11) Thompson Twins – “Sister Of Mercy” (video)
( Charts 10 - 01 - Richard Skinner / Peter Powell )
(01) Frankie Goes To Hollywood – “Two Tribes”
(25) Shannon – “Sweet Somebody” (audience dancing/credits)


I first became aware of Divine with the single "Shoot Your Shot" - which was a hit in various European countries in 1983, but I don't think was released except as a 12" single in the UK. Overall I think it had about the same amount of success as the big UK hit, "You Think You're A Man". Divine died in 1988, aged just 42.

I also bought the singles by Blancmange (one of only two of theirs that I liked) and Billy Idol (this one only!)

Tonight, advancing a fortnight to episode 1065, we find several of the same songs as yesterday :


02/08/84 (Presented by Simon Bates and Gary Davies)
(19) Black Lace – “Agadoo”
(04) Prince – “When Doves Cry” (“Purple Rain” clips)
(15) The Kane Gang – “The Closest Thing To Heaven”
(05) Tina Turner – “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” (video)
(43) A Flock Of Seagulls – “The More You Live The More You Love”
( Charts 40 - 26 - Simon Bates )
(44) Trevor Walters – “Stuck On You”
( Charts 25 - 12 - Gary Davies )
(12) George Michael – “Careless Whisper” (video)
( Charts 11 - 01 - Gary Davies / Simon Bates )
(01)Frankie Goes To Hollywood – “Two Tribes”
(16) Divine – “You Think You’re A Man” (audience dancing/credits)


There didn't seem to be a lot of "When Doves Cry" - possibly the film clips were trimmed right down to a much shorter length, in a "Bright Eyes" kind of way, and for similar budgetary reasons . . . . .

Although I much preferred the later "Spitting Image" parody, the Black Lace single was the only one I bought from this line-up. The song was actually first recorded, in French, all the way back in 1970 !

Sad to say that Black Lace made very little money from the massive selling Agadoo. Apparently they got raw deal over the rights to it. So much so they finished up re-recording it to actually make some money from the track.

The Frankie fiddling to stay at the top had ended weeks ago on the Real Chart, with them managing only five weeks. Neil had taken the spot from them, followed by George Michael, who was top when that last one went out.

Tonight, episode 1066 :

09/08/84 (Presented by John Peel and Richard Skinner)

(26) Tracey Ullman – “Sunglasses”
(20) Windjammer – “Tossing & Turning”
(08) Hazell Dean – “Whatever I Do (Wherever I Go)”
(15) Jeffrey Osborne – “On The Wings Of Love”
( Charts 40 - 22 - John Peel )
(22) Blancmange – “The Day Before You Came”
( Charts 21 - 13 - Richard Skinner )
(13) Laura Branigan – “Self Control” (video)
( Charts 12 - 02 - John Peel / Richard Skinner )
(01) Frankie Goes To Hollywood – “Two Tribes”
(25) Rod Stewart – “Some Guys Have All The Luck” (audience dancing/credits)


The Tracey Ullman and Hazell Dean songs were on their way to higher peaks - number 18 and number four respectively - but both are among my top fifty of all time !

I had to check the chart peaks of the Blancmange cover and the Abba original. Perhaps surprisingly, the former wasn't going to go any higher than 22 after this appearance - but that's ten places better than Abba had reached. One of their last singles, it rather underperformed in the UK - but did a lot better elsewhere in Europe.

I'm a bit baffled by John Peel's addendum in the chart rundown "Trevor Walters (no relation)". Perhaps he was referring - more obliquely than most viewers would understand, I suspect - to his Radio One producer John Walters (also now deceased) ?

Tonight, episode 1067:

16/08/84 (Presented by Andy Peebles and Steve Wright)
(38) Tears For Fears – “Mothers Talk”
(10) Howard Jones – “Like To Get To Know You Well” (video)
(02) Black Lace – “Agadoo”
(27) Iron Maiden – “2 Minutes To Midnight” (video)
Jonathan King with the American chart:
- The Jacksons – “Human Nature” (live clip + interview)
- Bruce Springsteen – “Dancing In The Dark” (video clip)
- Dan Hartman – “I Can Dream About You” (video clip)
- Ray Parker Jr – “Ghostbusters” (video clip)

( Charts 40 - 26 - Andy Peebles )
(29) A Flock Of Seagulls – “The More You Live The More You Love”
( Charts 25 - 11 - Andy Peebles )
(15) Trevor Walters – “Stuck On You”
( Charts 10 - 02 - Andy Peebles )
(01) George Michael – “Careless Whisper” (video)
(34) The Pointer Sisters – “I Need You” (audience dancing/credits)


Once again, it was just "Agadoo" in my collection from this bunch !

I had a vague recollection that Dan Hartman died at a fairly young age - and, checking just now, this is indeed so. He passed away in 1994, at the age of 43.

Tonight, episode 1068:

23/08/84 (Presented by Mike Read and Tommy Vance)
(43) Alphaville – “Big In Japan”
(15) Elton John – “Passengers” (video)
(40) Break Machine – “Are You Ready?”
(16) Miami Sound Machine – “Dr. Beat”
(18) Tracey Ullman – “Sunglasses” (video)
( Charts 40 - 23 - Tommy Vance )
(23) Spandau Ballet – “I’ll Fly For You”
( Charts 22 - 11 - Mike Read )
(19) Rod Stewart – “Some Guys Have All The Luck” (video)
( Charts 10 - 02 - Tommy Vance / Mike Read )
(01) George Michael – “Careless Whisper”
(06) Laura Branigan – “Self Control” (audience dancing/credits)


The Alphaville hit had been very big in continental Europe earlier in the year, and the follow-up "Sounds Like A Melody" was already doing well there by the time "Big In Japan" was released in the UK. That was never released as a single here - although I thought it was much better ! Instead, "Forever Young" was the next single here at much the same time as it was released elsewhere. Nowadays, though, I think "Forever Young" gets more radio airplay in the UK than "Big In Japan" . . . . .

Tonight, episode 1070 :

06/09/84 (Presented by Janice Long and John Peel, and introducing Bruno Brookes)
(21) Bucks Fizz – “Talking In Your Sleep”
(09) Spandau Ballet – “I’ll Fly For You” (video)
(32) Sister Sledge – “Lost In Music”
( Charts 40 - 26 - Janice Long )
(26) Level 42 – “Hot Water”
( Charts 25 - 11 - John Peel )
(11) Alphaville – “Big In Japan”
( Charts 10 - 02 - Janice Long / John Peel )
(01) Stevie Wonder – “I Just Called To Say I Love You” (video)
( introducing Bruno Brookes )
(05) Elton John – “Passengers” (audience dancing/credits)


It was a bit surprising that references to the partly train-based edition that would be episode 1069 were left in yesterday's repeat - as that episode wouldn't be repeated due to the presence of Jimmy Savile. This one began with (almost) an explanation of why Bucks Fizz were appearing for a second week running because something went wrong with their performance in the previous week. "Talking In Your Sleep" was a song I was already familiar with, because a version by the Romantics had charted in several European countries a year earlier. The band were from Detroit, Michigan and reached the top three in the USA - but their single may not have been released in the UK.

Bruno Brookes was introduced as presenting the next show in episode 1070 - but, because his co-presenter was Dave Lee Travis, it's on tonight to episode 1072 . . . . .


20/09/84 (Presented by Andy Peebles and Steve Wright)
(22) Bronski Beat – “Why?”
(17) David Bowie – “Blue Jean” (video)
(07) Sister Sledge – “Lost In Music”
(19) Queen – “Hammer To Fall” (video)
(20) Nik Kershaw – “Human Racing”
Jonathan King with the US charts:
- Scandal – “The Warrior” (video clip)
- The Cars – “Drive” (video clip)
- John Waite – “Missing You” (video clip)

( Charts 40 - 28 - Andy Peebles )
(28) Adam Ant – “Apollo 9”
( Charts 27 - 11 - Andy Peebles )
(18) Level 42 – “Hot Water”
( Charts 10 - 01 - Andy Peebles )
(01) Stevie Wonder – “I Just Called To Say I Love You” (video)
(27) Freddie Mercury – “Love Kills” (audience dancing/credits)



"Love Kills" was my favourite of Freddie Mercury's solo work - although it would be a different track that would eventually give him a number one following his death . . . . .

It's interesting that for the first time since they started showing TOTP repeats that the early edition has run for the same length as the later edition, going past the 8pm normal finish time. I wonder if they are going to stick with it?
I never thought much of Steve Wright. His saying that Human Racing was the best record from Nick Kershaw I could never agree with. It's slightly boring to me.

Moving on a fortnight to episode 1074 tonight, with another show starting and ending the same way as the previous repeat . . . . .

04/10/84 (Presented by Simon Bates and Richard Skinner)
(06) Bronski Beat – “Why?”
(15) The Cars – “Drive” (video)
(38) John Waite – “Missing You”
(21) Giorgio Moroder & Philip Oakey – “Together In Electric Dreams” (video)

(03) Culture Club – “The War Song”
(28) Paul McCartney – “No More Lonely Nights” (video)
( Charts 40 - 26 - Richard Skinner )
(32) The Stranglers – “Skin Deep”
( Charts 25 - 11 - Simon Bates )
(13) Adam Ant – “Apollo 9”
( Charts 10 - 01 - Simon Bates / Richard Skinner )
(01) Stevie Wonder – “I Just Called To Say I Love You” (video)
(10) Freddie Mercury – “Love Kills” (audience dancing/credits)


. . . . . Luckily, the middle section is quite different. The Moroder / Oakey collaboration was my favourite by far from this edition.

Richard Skinner's prediction that the new entry from Culture Club was on its way to number one seemed like a reasonable one - but it was not to be, as the current chart-topper was going to stay there longer than anything else in 1984.

You'll need to fast-forward a bit of episode 1075 tonight . . . . .



11/10/84 (Presented by Mike Read and Tommy Vance)
(52) Kim Wilde – “The Second Time”
(22) Sade – “Smooth Operator” (video)
(03) Wham! – “Freedom”
(29) Stephanie Mills – “The Medicine Song” (video)

(20) Paul Young – “I’m Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down”
( Charts 40 - 26 - Tommy Vance )
(35) Alison Moyet – “All Cried Out”
( Charts 25 - 11 - Mike Read )
(13) The Style Council – “Shout To The Top”
( Charts 10 - 01 - Tommy Vance / Mike Read )
(01) Stevie Wonder – “I Just Called To Say I Love You” (video)
(38) Bruce Springsteen – “Cover Me” (audience dancing/credits)




A new entry at number three for the second week at a row - and a strange week, in that it would have been possible for this edition to include every new entry, climber and non-mover in the top forty that wasn't featured in the previous one ! The only one missing was Meatloaf's "Modern Girl", up from 46 to 34. Perhaps he was unavailable, resulting in Kim Wilde having the only hit of the whole year performed while not even inside the top fifty. "The Second Time" wasn't the nearest single to the top forty that was eligible, however - indeed, it wasn't even the closest by anybody whose surname was "Wilde" . . . . .

42 ( 71 ) TOO LATE FOR GOODBYES - JULIAN LENNON
45 ( 48 ) THE A TEAM - MIKE POST
47 ( 56 ) GIMME ALL YOUR LOVIN' - ZZ TOP
50 ( 00 ) GOTTA GET YOU HOME TONIGHT - EUGENE WILDE
52 ( 00 ) THE SECOND TIME - KIM WILDE

Tonight, episode 1076:

18/10/84 (presented by Gary Davies and Janice Long)
(25) Spandau Ballet – “Highly Strung”
(04) Paul McCartney – “No More Lonely Nights” (video)
(30) Julian Lennon – “Too Late For Goodbyes”
(22) Chaka Khan – “I Feel For You” (video)
Jonathan King with the American chart:
- The Pointer Sisters – “I’m So Excited” (video clip)
- Chicago – “Hard Habit To Break” (video clip)
- Billy Ocean – “Caribbean Queen” (video clip)

(10) John Waite – “Missing You” (video)
( Charts 40 - 26 - Janice Long )
(26) Meat Loaf – “Modern Girl”
( Charts 25 - 11 - Gary Davies )
(23) Ultravox – “Love’s Great Adventure”
( Charts 10 - 02 - Janice Long / Gary Davies )
(01) Wham! – “Freedom”
(05) Giorgio Moroder & Philip Oakey – “Together In Electric Dreams” (audience dancing/credits)


The Friday evening repeats have moved to 8.30pm from today, in the extremely optimistic hope that many of the target audience may be interested in also watching the new series involving Greg James at 7.30pm on BBC ONE !

I didn't really like this Julian Lennon single, but he would do well with something rather better a few years later, "Saltwater". Curiously, the UK-released 12" single of that one included a Spanish version of the same song, "Creo Que Voy A Llorar".

Tonight, advancing three weeks to episode 1079 :


08/11/84 (Presented by Simon Bates and Richard Skinner)
(10) Limahl – “Never Ending Story”
(07) Status Quo – “The Wanderer” (video)
(29) Depeche Mode – “Blasphemous Rumours”
(08) Alison Moyet – “All Cried Out” (video)

(09) Billy Ocean – “Caribbean Queen”
(21) Chicago – “Hard Habit To Break” (video)
( Charts 40 - 26 Richard Skinner )
(32) Gary Numan – “Berserker”
( Charts 25 - 11 - Simon Bates )
(22) Eugene Wilde – “Gotta Get You Home Tonight”
( Charts 10 - 02 - Simon Bates / Richard Skinner )
(01) Chaka Khan – “I Feel For You” (video)
(11) ZZ Top – “Gimme All Your Lovin’” (audience dancing/credits)


An interesting extract from a Wikipedia page relevant to the opening performance:

Beth Anderson (born 1954) is an American singer and voice actress from Lexington, Kentucky.

Anderson performed main vocals for Limahl's No. 1 hit "The NeverEnding Story", the theme song for the 1984 eponymous film, though she was not credited as a featured artist. Her lyrics were recorded in America separately from Limahl's, and accordingly she did not appear in the music video. One of Limahl's back-up singers, Mandy Newton, lip-synced Anderson's lyrics for the music video.
. . . . . and also, it would seem, for this "Top Of The Pops" appearance ! This very high-ranking single in my own all-time chart is almost unique in my collection, in that it fades in at the beginning as well as fading out at the end.

While Billy Ocean's hit was "Caribbean Queen" in the UK, Ireland and France, it was successfully released instead as "European Queen" everywhere else in continental Europe - and there was another version, "African Queen", with which he charted in South Africa. I believe the lyrics were exactly the same in all three, except at the points when the nationality of the queen was mentioned.

Depeche Mode's hit was a AA side with the haunting "Somebody".
Both are favourites of mine. The video for Blasphemous is not what you would expect. But just simply the band playing. Considering the lyrics you would have thought they would made a video which matched them.
The track was highly controversial at the time for it's anti-religious content. Clearly not something that people would pick for a funeral. :lol:
However I still think the lyrics are great. In some ways they fit in with the Final Destination movies. You can imagine God laughing at them! :lol:

Tonight, episode 1080 :


15/11/84 (Presented by Bruno Brookes and Mike Read)
(34) Matt Bianco – “Half A Minute”
(02) Duran Duran – “The Wild Boys” (video)
(38) Slade – “All Join Hands”
(24) Eurythmics – “Sex Crime (1984)” (video)
(03) Jim Diamond – “I Should Have Known Better”
(28) The Dazz Band – “Let It All Blow” (video)

( Charts 40 - 26 - Mike Read )
(31) Alvin Stardust – “I Won’t Run Away”
( Charts 25 - 11 - Bruno Brookes )
(17) Nik Kershaw – “The Riddle”
( Charts 10 - 01 - Bruno Brookes / Mike Read )
(01) Chaka Khan – “I Feel For You”
( Brief interview with Chaka Khan )
(14) The Pointer Sisters – “I’m So Excited” (audience dancing/credits)


Prior to 1984, a very high new entry was often an indication that a climb to number one would shortly follow, especially for acts that had topped the charts before - but Duran Duran, like Culture Club and Spandau Ballet earlier in the year, would miss out this time. After arriving at number five and then only rising to number three, this week's number two would be the peak for "The Wild Boys". It would go to number one in Germany, however.

Strange again this week for more of the studio performances to be edited out in the early evening than the videos!

22/11/84 (Presented by John Peel and Tommy Vance)
(34) Nick Heyward – “Warning Sign”
(08) Chicago – “Hard Habit To Break” (video)
(38) The Kane Gang – “Respect Yourself”

(26) The Human League – “Louise” (video)

(04) Limahl – “Never Ending Story” (audience dancing/credits)


Although he would continue to stand in occasionally for the Sunday evening chart show presenters on Radio One until 1992, this seems to be the last time that Tommy Vance presented "Top Of The Pops".

It's weird but watching these episodes I find myself doing the same thing as what people used to joke about watching the repeats of Dad's Army at the start, when it's listing the cast. Saying "he's dead".
Mind you it was 33 years ago and a lot of the stars and people were getting on a bit then. However many of the younger ones have gone too.

^ Indeed - and from tonight's edition (episode 1082) both Alvin Stardust and Jim Diamond, certainly not the oldest of the performers featured this time, died two or three years ago . . . . .


29/11/84 (Presented by Janice Long and Peter Powell)
(04) Nik Kershaw – “The Riddle”
(06) Eurythmics – “Sex Crime (1984)”
(15) Slade – “All Join Hands”
(31) Tina Turner – “Private Dancer” (video)
(19) Kool & The Gang – “Fresh”
(03) Frankie Goes To Hollywood – “The Power Of Love” (video)
( Charts 40 - 27 - Janice Long )
(27) Madonna – “Like A Virgin” (video)
( Charts 26 - 11 - Peter Powell )
(11) Alvin Stardust – “I Won’t Run Away”
( Charts 10 - 02 - Peter Powell / Janice Long )
(01) Jim Diamond – “I Should Have Known Better”
(26) Black Lace – “Do The Conga” (and credits)


Janice Long was correct with her prediction that "The Power Of Love" would give Frankie Goes To Hollywood a third chart-topper - but my favourite by a long way from this one was the opening number, the only single by Nik Kershaw that I ever bought !

[ Still regularly repeated, it's now more than forty years ago that the last of the eighty original episodes of "Dad's Army" was made ! It seems that the only significant cast members still alive are Ian Lavender (Pike) and Frank Williams (The Vicar) - both of whom appeared briefly in the recent film remake. ]
