Although the next show was presented by Peter Powell and Steve Wright, unfortunately it featured Gary Glitter's Christmas single in between two parts of the chart countdown (plus, it seems, in the background of most of the DJs' links throughout) - so this one is being missed, and it's on to episode 1084 tonight :


20/12/84 (Presented by Simon Bates and Janice Long)
(36) Roy Wood/Wizzard – “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday”
(03) Paul McCartney & The Frog Chorus – “We All Stand Together” (video)
(33) Bronski Beat – “It Ain’t Necessarily So”
(19) Spandau Ballet – “Round & Round” (video)
(37) The Council Collective – “Soul Deep”
( Charts 40 - 26 - Simon Bates )
(26) Foreigner – “I Want To Know What Love Is” (video)
( Charts 25 - 11 - Janice Long )
(20) Thompson Twins – “Lay Your Hands On Me”
( Charts 10 - 01 - Simon Bates / Janice Long )
(01) Band Aid – “Do They Know It’s Christmas” (video)
(15) Ray Parker Jr – “Ghostbusters” (audience dancing/credits)


Simon Bates was correct in predicting what would be a future number one out of the songs featured this week !

Just two special editions looking back at the hits of 1984 remain - and the first of those, episode 1085, is repeated on BBC FOUR tonight:

25/12/84 (Each act introduced by someone from one of the others, usually the previous one):
Frankie Goes To Hollywood – “Two Tribes”
Howard Jones – “What Is Love?”
Duran Duran – “The Reflex”
Nik Kershaw – “I Won’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me”
Culture Club – “The War Song”
Thompson Twins – “Doctor Doctor”
Jim Diamond – “I Should Have Known Better”
Wham! – “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” (video)
Paul Young – “Love Of The Common People”
Duran Duran – “The Wild Boys”
George Michael – “Careless Whisper” (video)
Frankie Goes To Hollywood – “The Power Of Love”
Thompson Twins – “You Take Me Up”
Frankie Goes To Hollywood – “Relax”
Band Aid – “Do They Know It’s Christmas” (and credits)

The first time, of course, that "Relax" had been featured since the very beginning of the year ! By this point, it had also become playable again on Radio One.

New Year's Eve line-up: BBC One 4:05pm

Ed Sheeran - Galway Girl
Craig David feat. Bastille - I Know You
The Vamps - Personal
Yungen feat. Yxng Bane - Bestie
Dua Lipa - Be The One
Rita Ora - Anywhere
Sigala feat. Ella Eyre - Came Here For Love
Starley - Call On Me
Mabel feat. Kojo Funds - Finders Keepers
Anne-Marie - Heavy
Paloma Faith - Guilty

Four repeat artists from the Christmas Day show... SMH. The BBC have a hideous trend of regurgitating the same acts across their shows. Paloma should be doing Crybaby. That Vamps song wasn't even a hit, nor was Anne-Marie's. One saving grace is no sign of any One Direction gimps, although Harry should be performing SOTT by rights.

Tonight on BBC FOUR - episode 1086, the last of 1984 :


27/12/84 (Presented by Lenny Henry)
Spandau Ballet – “Only When You Leave”
Ultravox – “Dancing With Tears In My Eyes”
Slade – “My Oh My”
Neil – “Hole In My Shoe”
Chaka Khan – “I Feel For You” (video)
Shakin’ Stevens – “A Love Worth Waiting For”
Bronski Beat – “Smalltown Boy”
Paul McCartney – “No More Lonely Nights” (video clip)
Paul McCartney – “Pipes Of Peace” (video clip)
Bananarama – “Robert De Niro’s Waiting”
Lionel Richie – “Hello” (video)
Black Lace – “Agadoo”
The Flying Pickets – “Only You”
Joe Fagin – “That’s Living Alright”
Stevie Wonder – “I Just Called To Say I Love You” (video)
Ray Parker Jr – “Ghostbusters” (audience dancing/credits)



Nigel Planer's ad-lib during his performance as neil, "It's not really Christmas, you know - this was pre-recorded last July", amused me more than anything Lenny Henry said or did as himself or as any of his various comedy characters throughout the rest of the programme . . . . .

Back in 1984, I had bought four singles that were featured in this programme - in contrast, there is only one track from each of the 2017 editions in my collection ! Those are "Symphony" (inexplicably mis-titled as "Discovery" above) and "Be The One".

I see they are recorded at Elstree Film Studios.

I don't think it would hurt the BBC to bring back a 30 minute weekly show.

They did - Sounds Like Friday Night! Although it only ran for six episodes it returns in the spring. It became more like TOTP (apart from the absence of a chart countdown) as the weeks went by.

And that will be a week on Friday, January 12th. Curiously, the first one has a 40-minute slot that evening (7.30pm to 8.10pm) but that may still be edited, as the late night version is from 12.30am to 1.15am (45 minutes).

However, before that - in possibly a new regular slot of Monday to Thursday at midnight - BBC FOUR are repeating again the earliest available (and presumably unedited) editions from 1981, which they previously repeated at the beginning of 2016.

Monday 8th January - 08/01/81 and 22/01/81

Tuesday 9th January - 29/01/81 and 05/02/81

Wednesday 10th January -12/02/81 and 26/02/81

Thursday 11th January - 05/03/81

More reruns of the 1981 editions are due next week, at the later time of 1.00 a.m. (!) . . . . .

Monday 16th January - 12/03/1981, 19/03/1981
Tuesday 17th January - 26/03/1981, 02/04/1981
Wednesday 18th January - 09/04/1981, 16/04/1981
Thursday 19th January 14/05/1981, 28/05/1981

. . . . .while tonight sees the first 1985 episode to air on BBC FOUR (episode 1087):


03/01/85 (Presented by John Peel and Richard Skinner)
(34) Smiley Culture – “Police Officer”
( Charts 40 - 26 - Richard Skinner )
(37) Sal Solo – “Sam Damiano (Heart & Soul)”
( Charts 25 - 11 - John Peel )
(10) Foreigner – “I Want To Know What Love Is” (video clip)
(09) Paul Young – “Everything Must Change” (video)
(08) Tears For Fears – “Shout”
(07) Frankie Goes To Hollywood – “The Power Of Love” (video clip)
(06) Ray Parker Jr – “Ghostbusters” (video clip)
(05) The Toy Dolls – “Nellie The Elephant”
(04) Madonna – “Like A Virgin” (video)
(03) Paul McCartney & The Frog Chorus – “We All Stand Together” (video clip)
(02) Wham! – “Everything She Wants”
(01) Band Aid – “Do They Know It’s Christmas” (video)
(30) Grandmaster Melle Mel & The Furious Five – “Step Off” (audience dancing/credits)



The "brand hew shape" to the programme for 1985, as John Peel put it, turned out to be spending the vast majority of the show on the top ten, with not really very much else ! Not an approach that would last for very many weeks.

Chart runs are incorrect - they've missed out a Christmas chart week. Ghostbusters isn't up from 15 but from 7. Step Off and Police Officer are not entries, they're top 40 climbers. Strangely shoddy of TOTP.
http://www.officialcharts.com/charts/si ... 1223/7501/

Re: Step Off. Shame we never saw White Lines due to banned episodes(?) but people should know Grandmaster Melle Mel is the rapper on it. Grandmaster Flash was not a rapper but a DJ and he wasn't even on it (odd record company marketing).

And we won't see its 5th week at the top due to a banned ep but broadcasting this one a week late still reinforces the fact that Band Aid was the ONLY actual Christmas song to stay at the top well into January and still be charting in March! Such was the mood.

Ah - I think the reasoning behind this is that the previous week's chart wasn't ever broadcasted on Radio One. It definitely wasn't on the previous Sunday evening chart show, in which Richard Skinner played all of the top forty of 1984 as fully as two hours allowed (typically 2 - 2.5 minutes of the lowest ranking, 3 - 3.5 minutes each of those at the top end) - and possibly wasn't published anywhere until alongside this week's new chart in the first "Music Week" (or it might have been "Music and Video Week") of 1985 . . . . .

^ Ah. :D

Oh yeah - the Christmas / NY 2017 editions were the worst i have ever skipped through. :roll:

And Sounds Like A Load Of Sh**e too - totally clueless TV programmers. A music programme needs MUSIC not interviews, not "fun items".
They also need people that love music - at least Jools Holland does. If they brought TOTP back they could keep Fearne Cotton but none of the others on these shows pass the test for me.

The mood might have been their but the record company distribution throughout the country was not there. They were still sampling the charts at this point. And by the 13 January it was down to 3, falling rapidly to 20 the week after. Madonna Like a Virgin was top of the chart.
Followed by this little ditto I remastered in stereo.

Advancing a fortnight to episode 1089:


17/01/85 (Presented by Gary Davies and Peter Powell)
(19) The Limit – “Say Yeah”
(13) Prince – “1999” (video)
(17) Amii Stewart – “Friends”
Jonathan King with the US charts:
- Pat Benatar – “We Belong” (video clip)
- Bryan Adams – “Run To You” (video clip)
- Philip Bailey and Phil Collins – “Easy Lover” (video clip)
- Chicago – “You’re The Inspiration” (video clip)

(12) Smiley Culture - "Police Officer"
(18) Russ Abbot – “Atmosphere” (video)
Philip Lynott - Yellow Pearl (remix) with images from suggested "Best British Video Award" nominations
( Charts 40 - 11 - Gary Davies / Peter Powell )
( Video clips of numbers 10 and 09 )
- (08) Grandmaster Melle Mel & The Furious Five – “Step Off”
( Video clips of numbers 07, 06, 05, 04, 03 and 02 )
(01) Foreigner – “I Want To Know What Love Is” (video)
(36) Bruce Springsteen – “Dancing In The Dark” (audience dancing/credits)


I think the opening number was another that I was already familiar with ahead of its UK release, because it had originally charted somewhat earlier in the Netherlands. I didn't like it, however - the only hit I bought from this edition was the one by Russ Abbot !

Gary Davies saying Scottish female duo Strawberry Switchblade are from Liverpool. :roll: (and that Bruce is a 26 at the end of ep not 36)
From the Mike Smith episode:

It's also missing next week as we skip again.

Some great trivia from TOTP Facts:

Tom Bailey of Thompson Twins played keyboards on Foreigner's hit (Thomas Dolby played on their similar earlier hit Waiting For A Girl Like You).

The Limit were a Dutch production / vocal duo who later composed Five Star's hit Love Take Over. The female on Say Yeah was none other than Gwen Guthrie but the performance on TOTP featured future Brit hitmaker Haywoode (Roses).

And - this floored me! - Russ Abbot's Atmosphere (sort of a very belated Christmas hit) was co-composed by Steve Rodway AKA Motiv-8 (behind Gina G's Oooh Aaah... and several great dance hits and remxes under Motiv-8 name). :o

I've now amended my previously incorrect positioning of the Smiley Culture performance above (there was such an impressive editing job in the early evening edition that I didn't think it could possibly have been where it was according to Popscene!) and added details of another segment that was edited out then but was in the late night version.

Blondini wrote:Gary Davies saying Scottish female duo Strawberry Switchblade are from Liverpool. :roll: (and that Bruce is a 26 at the end of ep not 36)
I think he - or maybe it was Peter Powell - also referred to Prince as if a group. But maybe at least one of the releases of this single had the credit "...and the Revolution".

Blondini wrote:The female on Say Yeah was none other than Gwen Guthrie but the performance on TOTP featured future Brit hitmaker Haywoode (Roses).
I thought I recognised her, but wasn't sure. But I had no idea who else had originally sung it . . . . .

. . . . . and nor was I aware of this connection to at least one other hit (and quite possibly more) in my collection !






There are more very late night opportunities to see again editions from 1981 that were first repeated two years ago, before we return to 1985 on Thursday:

Monday night 0100 : 04/06/1981 (Siouxsie & the Banshees, Imagination, Phil Collins, Squeeze, The Jam)

Monday night 0135 : 18/06/1981 (Linx, Phil Collins, Odyssey, The Specials, Imagination, Smokey Robinson)

Tuesday night 0100 : 25/06/1981 (Evasions, Randy Crawford, Depeche Mode, Elaine Paige, Kirsty MacColl)

Tuesday night 0135 : 16/07/1981 (Spandau Ballet, Saxon, Third World, Kate Bush, Bad Manners)

Wednesday night 0100 : 23/07/1981 (The Vapors, Tight Fit, Gidea Park, Sheena Easton, Visage, The Specials)

Wednesday night 0135 : 30/07/1981 (Kim Wilde, The Undertones, Duran Duran, Bill Wyman, Stevie Wonder)

Tonight, episode 1091:

31/01/85 (Presented by Janice Long and Peter Powell)
(36) Big Sound Authority – “This House (Is Where Your Love Stands)”
(21) Art Of Noise – “Close (To The Edit)”
Breakers:
- (18) Bryan Adams – “Run To You” (video clip)
- (19) Phil Collins – “Sussudio” (video clip)
- (25) Pat Benatar – “We Belong” (video clip)
- (32) The Commodores – “Nightshift” (video clip)
(31) The Colour Field – “Thinking Of You”
( Charts 40 - 11 - Janice Long / Peter Powell )
(10) Bruce Springsteen – “Dancing In The Dark” (video)
( Video clips of the rest of the top ten )
(01) Foreigner – “I Want To Know What Love Is” (video and credits)


From this point onwards, more shorter video clips and fewer full-length studio performances ! That may or may not what the be audience had expressed a preference for - however, three or more short bits from hits already in the top forty but dubbed "breakers" would replace perhaps two or three complete songs every week for the foreseeable future.

Disappointingly, the Pat Benatar hit - for me, by far the best of this edition - would only climb three more places in the next fortnight to a number 22 peak.

And tonight, episode 1092 ;

07/02/85 (Presented by Gary Davies and Richard Skinner)
(02) King – “Love & Pride”
(11) Bryan Adams – “Run To You” (video)
(12) Phil Collins and his Hot Tub Club – “Sussudio”
(13) Kirsty MacColl – “A New England” (video)
Breakers:
- (32) Killing Joke – “Love Like Blood”
- (34) Chicago – “You’re The Inspiration”
- (39) George Benson – “20/20”
- (40) Dead Or Alive – “You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)”
(18) Howard Jones – “Things Can Only Get Better”
( Charts 40 - 11 - Gary Davies / Richard Skinner / Gary Davies )
(16) Billy Ocean – “Lover Boy” (video)
( Video clips of the rest of the top ten )
(01) Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson – “I Know Him So Well”
( Brief interview with Gary Byrd )
(23) Pat Benatar – “We Belong” (audience dancing/credits)


I'm not sure that the initial introduction, "21 songs in 40 minutes" , was necessarily something to boast about (especially as it was actually twenty - the hit by King was probably counted twice) . . . . . although this may have helped to make it too difficult to edit the programme down to around half an hour for the early evening repeat.

After very sluggish progress in its first few months of release, a short clip from this week's number forty could have contributed to much faster movement all the way to number one not many weeks later !

I'm enjoying that Police Officer song! Did SL2 sample it in the 90s?

Why did the presenter say "that's the last time we'll hear that on the show" of 1999?

The Dead or Alive hype was explained by Pete Waterman as a special remix called the TDF mix. Which actually stood for Two Dogs F***ing.
Apparently he was trying every trick in the book to get it too sell, but it wouldn't go up the charts.

But tonight it's episode 1093 :

(19) Dead Or Alive – “You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)”
(17) The Commodores – “Nightshift” (video)
(13) The Colour Field – “Thinking Of You”
Jonathan King with the US chart:
- REO Speedwagon – “Can’t Fight This Feeling” (video clip)
- David Lee Roth – “California Girls” (video clip)
- Daryl Hall & John Oates – “Method Of Modern Love” (video clip)
- George Michael – “Careless Whisper” (video clip)

(24) Killing Joke – “Love Like Blood”
Top 40 Breakers:
- (28) Sharpe & Numan – “Change Your Mind” (video clip)
- (36) Kool & The Gang – “Misled” (video clip)
- (39) Don Henley – “The Boys Of Summer” (video clip)
(26) The Smiths – “How Soon Is Now?”

( Video clips of the rest of the top ten )
(01) Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson – “I Know Him So Well” (video)
(34) Eugene Wilde – “Personality” (audience dancing/credits)


Dead or Alive and the Commodores were on their way to rather higher peaks in the top five - but most of the others featured tonight weren't going to improve very much on where they already were . . . . .

Tonight, episode 1094 :


21/02/85 (Presented by Bruno Brookes and Mike Read)
(06) Howard Jones – “Things Can Only Get Better”
(20) Sharpe & Numan – “Change Your Mind”
Chartbusters:
- (27) Prince – “Let’s Go Crazy” (video clip)
- (39) Mick Jagger – “Just Another Night” (video clip)
- (42) ZZ Top – “Legs” (video clip)
- (43) Little Benny & The Masters – “Who Comes To Boogie” (video clip)
(22) Don Henley – “The Boys Of Summer”
( Charts 40 - 11 - Mike Read / Bruno Brookes )
(11) Bryan Adams – “Run To You”
( Video clips of the rest of the top ten )
(01) Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson – “I Know Him So Well” (video)
(30) Eddy & The Soul Band – “Shaft” (audience dancing/credits)



I had forgotten that the "breakers" section in this new format was rapidly renamed "Chartbusters" - and also that it didn't always consist of hits that were already in the top forty. However, I can probably be forgiven for the latter - as this seems to be the one and only occasion in the whole year when there was anything featured that wasn't yet there !
