|Cooking up a storm|
27-3-80: Presenter: Peter Powell
(3) THE VAPORS – Turning Japanese (and charts)
Now at its peak in the charts.
(4) LIQUID GOLD – Dance Yourself Dizzy
A third performance from Liquid Gold, and the drummer seems to have run out of places to put the keyboard!
(23) GENESIS – Turn It On Again ®
A repeat of their debut performance, but the 'Turn it on Again' part was left in this time.
(11) Legs & Co – Stomp around in black dresses to the Brothers Johnson, with a song co-written by Rod Temperton, no doubt giving it a leg up into the top ten.
(38) DR. HOOK – Sexy Eyes
Sexy Eyes became the group's sixth and final top ten hit.
(25) JUDAS PRIEST – Living After Midnight
Lead singer Rob Halford has gone all long haired and blond since the last time we saw him, and this song was the first of three top 30 hits in 1980.
(21) SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES – Happy House ®
Another repeat showing here with Happy House on its way to a peak of 17.
(27) SECRET AFFAIR – My World
Was edited out of the 7.30pm showing.
(29) THE DOOLEYS – Love Patrol ®
Were also edited out, though this was a repeat.
(32) JOHN FOXX – No One Driving
On the show for a second time in 1980 each time with a song that just missed out on a top 30 place, No One Driving stalled at 32.
(5) THE DETROIT SPINNERS – Working My Way Back To You – Forgive Me Girl (Medley) (video)
The only video on the show tonight and the first time we've seen the Detroit Spinners in action.
(1) THE JAM – Going Underground
With Paul Weller sporting a back to front (advertising!) Heinz Tomato Soup apron as a nod to The Who, this was the second of three weeks at number one for Going Underground.
(30) LEON HAYWOOD – Don’t Push It, Don’t Force It (and credits)
Playing over the credits is Leon Haywood with his only UK chart hit.
Next week is a Sky at Night week so we have to wait a fortnight until we get to see the edition from April 3rd 1980
