'Ere, hold on Terry ~ we're not due on till next year!
29-7-82: Presenter: Mike Read
(2) DEXY’S MIDNIGHT RUNNERS with THE EMERALD EXPRESS – Come On Eileen
This week's show begins with the record that was about to take over the number one spot and become the biggest selling single of 1982.
(3) YAZOO – Don’t Go (video)
A somewhat silly Halloween video here to accompany Yazoo's second top ten hit of 1982 which was now at its chart peak.
(7) HOT CHOCOLATE – It Started With A Kiss
Sorry Kevin but Hot Chocolate got the nod for the white suits this week and It Started with a Kiss went up two more places.
(14) CLIFF RICHARD – The Only Way Out ®
Went up four more places.
(33) ELKIE BROOKS – Nights In White Satin
At its chart peak but edited out of tonight's 7.30 showing.
(28) THE FIRM – Arthur Daley (‘E’s Alright)
Another comedy record that was (perhaps) funnier at the time, featuring the chap who really sang on the Rubettes records, Tony Thorpe. This Chas & Dave soundalike tune peaked at 14 but a much bigger hit was a five year mission away.....
(20) PAUL McCARTNEY – Take It Away (video)
A terrific video from Macca here featuring enough star names to fill Adam Ant with envy. The song made it to number 15.
(15) DAVID ESSEX – Me And My Girl (Night-Clubbing)
A second studio performance from David to help him and his girl up two more places.
(1) IRENE CARA – Fame (video) (and credits)
And we end the show with a third and final week of Fame.
Next up is August 5th 1982.
