At this rate you might see me again in 1996!
4-2-82: Presenter: John Peel
(40) THEATRE OF HATE – Do You Believe In The Westworld?
The show gets off to a spikey blonde hair and perfect teeth cowboy song this week. A somewhat bizarre record for sure, but I think it deserved to get higher than its number 40 peak.
(6) ORCHESTRAL MANOEUVRES IN THE DARK – Maid Of Orleans (The Waltz Joan Of Arc) ®
Went up two more chart places.
(47) THE JETS – Love Makes The World Go Round
This Perry Como rock n roll cover became the Cotton brothers biggest of their string of hits when it peaked at number 21.
(20) SOFT CELL – Say Hello Wave Goodbye (video)
A deliciously over the top dramatic video for this deliciously over the top dramatic song, which became the first of three top 3 hits for the duo in 1982, when it made it to number 3.
(25) GILLAN – Restless ®
(12) SHAKATAK – Easier Said Than Done
(14) AC/DC – Let’s Get It Up (video)
These three songs were all edited out of tonight's 7.30pm slot.
(15) XTC – Senses Working Overtime
A new studio performance here, this time with a slicked back hair Andy Partridge, and the song went up another five places.
(21) GEORGE BENSON – Never Give Up On A Good Thing
Zoo do a Legs style video performance here to George Benson's only hit of the year, which peaked at number 14.
(7) CHRISTOPHER CROSS – Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do) (video)
At is peak now.
(1) KRAFTWERK – The Model (video)
Some strange ups and downs in the chart this week culminating in The Model making it to number one but it won't be there next week....
(5) MEAT LOAF – Dead Ringer For Love (crowd dancing) (and credits)
Also going back up the charts this week, but 5 was the peak.
Next then is February 11th 1982 with Tommy Vance.
