Boney M - Mary's Boy Child - Oh My Lord - i'm surprised CZB didn't point this out. It's a medley.

* = outside UK top 75

3 2 The Undertones - Teenage Kicks
4 3 Public Image Ltd - Public Image

6 NE David Bowie - Art Decade (live) / Ziggy Stardust (live) (Breaking Glass - Live EP)
Not keen on Breaking Glass itself, even in the longer live EP version (it's NOT the album version). I'm singling out an instrumental he didn't even play on! :lol:

Greased Lightnin' has filthy lyrics. :o :lol:
Do they censor it on daytime TV and radio? I've never noticed or looked out for any differences. It's a PG film. It should be a 12 or even a 15 for that song alone!
