Carrie gets the idea for a change of hair colour....
3-6-82: Presenter: David Jensen (Live)
(5) ABC – The Look Of Love
Martin and his boy band get the show underway with pretty much the same routine as last time, and The Look of Love went up one more chart position.
(2) ADAM ANT – Goody Two Shoes (video)
A case here perhaps of an expensive video not being quite as eye catching as the studio performance? And Goody Two Shoes was still being stamped on by Madness, but not for much longer...
(27) ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN – The Back Of Love
Making their Top of the Pops debut here with a song produced by a young Ian Broudie, which became their breakthrough hit peaking at number 19. And a certain member of their audience was obviously born in a greenhouse!
(22) SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES – Fire works
Susan's transformation from punk to goth seems complete now, though fire works didn't quite set the chart alight, peaking at 22.
(21) FUN BOY THREE – The Telephone Always Rings
It looks like Neville and Lynval were doing their own version of Jane Fonda's workout here, with Terry doing his slightly embarrassed to be here routine. The song peaked at 17.
(15) CHARLENE – I’ve Never Been To Me
This was quite a story ~ a long forgotten record from 1976 is suddenly rediscovered and soars up the charts, whilst the singer is working in a newsagents in Ilford! It sounds like the TOTPS orchestra came out of retirement here to back her live vocal, missing out that talky bit on the record, and putting Charlene in the queue for number one.
(1) MADNESS – House Of Fun (video)
The Nutty Boys, live from Japan, introduce their second and final week at number one.
(7) JUNIOR – Mama Used To Say (and credits)
And another terrific live vocal here from Junior to end the show.
June 10th 1982 was hosted by Jimmy Savile and so obviously BBC4 will skip it in favour of June 17th with Simon Bates.
