(37) THE PIRANHAS feat. BORING BOB GROVER – Zambezi
It looks like the inhabitants of Beano Town have been let loose in the studio tonight, covering this 1956 Lou Busch top two hit, which became the second and final hit for the Piranhas, peaking at 17.
(3) KIDS FROM FAME – Starmaker (video)
They look so happy now, don't they? But the song got no higher in the charts.
(24) IMAGINATION – In The Heat Of The Night ®
Edited out of tonight's 7.30pm slot.
(35) TOYAH – Be Loud Be Proud (Be Heard)
A colourful performance from Toyah here but the song went up just five more places.
(31) KOOL & THE GANG – Ooh La La La (Let’s Go Dancin’)
In the studio looking very kool in matching suits with what became their biggest hit of the year, making it to number six.
(18) BAUHAUS – Ziggy Stardust ®
An entire band of Bowie impersonators, with a cover that sounds almost identical to the original, although Bowie himself never released this song as a single. It went up three more places.
(7) SPANDAU BALLET – Lifeline ®
Edited out of tonight's early viewing.
(27) SHARON REDD – Never Give You Up (video)
Sharon's facial expressions are giving Zoolander a run for his money here, andNever Give You Up made it to number 20.
(20) SHAKIN’ STEVENS – I’ll Be Satisfied (video)
Shaky and his exuberant fans take over the Shaftesbury theatre as he performs this Jackie Wilson cover which then peaked at number 10.
(1) CULTURE CLUB – Do You Really Want To Hurt Me? ®
The first of three weeks at number one.
(9) KID CREOLE & THE COCONUTS – Annie I’m Not Your Daddy (crowd dancing) (and credits)
On its way to seriously challenge for that number one spot.
It's (almost) Halloween again next with the edition from October 28th 1982.
