Darn it - Yewtreed yet again!
06/08/81 (hosted by Jimmy Savile)
(16) Dexys Midnight Runners – “Show Me”
At its peak now in the charts.
(8) Sheena Easton – “For Your Eyes Only” (video)
Sheena's third and final top ten hit, now at its peak.
(36) Tenpole Tudor – “Wunderbar”
The follow up to Swords of a Thousand Men, made it to number 16 but was their final top 40 hit.
(27) Lobo – “The Caribbean Disco Show”
Again there are three medleys on this edition, Legs & Co take on the first of them, making pretty much their own video for the song, and it was obviously quite hot on set....
The record by the way made it to number 8 and was the band's only hit.
(29) The Human League – “Love Action (I Believe In Love)”
We've been so unlucky this year with the Human League constantly appearing on these yewtreed shows. One of the songs of the year, this became the band's first top ten hit when it made number 3.
(25) REO Speedwagon – “Take It On The Run” (live clip)
Nudging up to its number 19 peak.
(20) Gidea Park – “Beach Boy Gold”
The second of this week's medleys, still heading towards number 11.
(10) Tight Fit – “Back To The ‘60s” (rpt from 23/07/81)
And here's medley number 3, heading towards number 4.
(1) Shakin’ Stevens – “Green Door” (video)
Second of four weeks at number one.
(21) Visage – “Visage” (audience dancing/credits)
We end with Visage at its chart peak.
So next up then on BBC4 will be August 13th 1981 with Simon Bates.
