Vee have vays of making eu dance...
7-1-82: Presenter: Peter Powell
(25) PHIL LYNOTT – Yellow Pearl (danced to by Zoo)
We begin 1982 where we left off in 1981, with the Lynott/Ure new theme tune, danced to here by Zoo, who were giving it a bit of muscle, helping it on its way to a peak of number 14.
(12) FOREIGNER – Waiting For A Girl Like You (video)
Edited out of the 7.30pm showing.
(US 1981 7) DARYL HALL & JOHN OATES – Kiss On My List (video)
(US 1981 5) RICK SPRINGFIELD – Jessie’s Girl (video)
(US 1981 1) KIM CARNES – Bette Davis Eyes (video)
Jonathan King's US chart rundown slot was also edited out.
(62) ALTON EDWARDS – I Just Wanna (Spend Some Time With You)
I don't remember this one at all, but it made it to number 20 and was Alton's only hit.
(30) MEAT LOAF – Dead Ringer For Love (video)
The first single from his number one album, Dead Ringer, this song became Meatloaf's first top ten hit when it reached number 5. The song was co-written by an uncredited Cher, who also shares the vocals.
(48) THE MOBILES – Drowning In Berlin
A sort of I'm in Love with a German Filmstar part two, and like the latter it also proved to be a quite atmospheric one hit wonder, peaking at number 9. Our very sharply dressed host tipped them to be one of the biggest acts of 1982....
(42) SHAKATAK – Easier Said Than Done
Making their debut in the studio tonight are jazz funk legends Shakatak with a tune that became their first top 20 hit when it peaked at number 12.
(9) JON & VANGELIS – I’ll Find My Way Home
Also making their studio debut here with what was to be their second and final top ten hit when it made number 6.
(1) THE HUMAN LEAGUE – Don’t You Want Me
A new silly string free studio performance now for their fifth and final week at number one.
(4) MADNESS – It Must Be Love (crowd dancing) (and credits)
This Labi Siffre cover was now at its chart peak.
Next up is 14th January 1982, but this is our first Yewtree casualty of the year, being hosted by DLT. So instead BBC4 will show January 21st with David Jensen, which will be next Thursday.
