(3) Bad Manners – “Can Can”
Already at its peak in the charts.
(25) Third World – “Dancing On The Floor (Hooked On Love)” (video)
Became the band's second and final top ten hit when it made number 10.
(2) The Specials – “Ghost Town”
The first of two final studio performances by the original line up of The Specials for a song that was soon to haunt the number one spot (and the band).
(16) Quincy Jones – “Razzamatazz”
The follow up to Ai No Corrida became Quincy's biggest hit when it made number 11, and Legs & Co also follow up their Ai No Corrida routine with another BBC4 melter....
(53) Barry Biggs – “Wide Awake In A Dream”
Became Barry's final hit peaking at 44.
(21) Linx – “Throw Away The Key”
Now at peak position in the chart.
(29) Rainbow – “Can’t Happen Here” (video)
Ended a run of three top ten hits when it peaked at 20.
(1) Michael Jackson – “One Day In Your Life” (Legs & Co) (rpt from 04/06/81 + credits)
Second and final week at number one.
The next edition is a major one ~ not only is it the 900th show but also the one that introduces the new opening titles and the launch of the Yellow Pearl era. The trouble is that one of the hosts is Jimmy Savile and so won't be shown on BBC4.
