Who's a pretty boy, then?
1-7-82: Presenter: John Peel
(34) VISAGE – Night Train
Here's something of a surprise to kick things off, the first ever studio performance from Visage, which unfortunately for them was also to be their final top 20 hit, peaking at number 12.
(13) THE JAM – Just Who Is The Five O’Clock Hero (video)
A live clip next of one the The Jam's least known hits, which peaked at number 8.
(22) QUEEN – Las Palabras De Amor ®
Freddy and his twitching moustache went up five more places.
(30) DOLLAR – Videotheque
Well David has made an effort to dress up and look smart in his suit and trilby, but miss Bazar on the other hand has turned up in an ill fitting string vest and precious little else ~ still, no one's complaining! And the song isn't half bad either, making it to number 17.
(21) CHERI – Murphy’s Law
Looks like the ladies from Zoo have been rummaging through their predecessors' old costumes, and to not such a bad effect too, for a routine to the Canadian's duo's only hit, peaking at 13.
(11) MIDGE URE – No Regrets (video)
With his debut solo single, a synth laden cover of course of the Walker Brothers classic, which peaked at number 9.
(1) CAPTAIN SENSIBLE – Happy Talk
The Captain is understandably in high kicking spirits as he celebrates the first of two weeks at number one.
(14) NATASHA – Iko Iko (and credits)
She's seen off the Belle Stars, and seemingly the rest of her band, and certainly most of her clothes, and now took Iko Iko up four more places.
July 8th 1982 is next with David Jensen.
