Mike knows the perfect place to put his pint of beer...
11-11-82: Presenter: David Jensen
(21) BLUE ZOO – Cry Boy Cry
Making their second appearance in the studio and getting tonight's show underway with their only top 30 hit, which peaked at number 13.
(2) DIONNE WARWICK – Heartbreaker ®
Now at its chart peak.
(9) MICHAEL JACKSON & PAUL McCARTNEY – The Girl Is Mine
The rare sight of an all male dance routine tonight from Zoo, but who would have had the slightest inkling at this point in time what was about to happen to Michael Jackson? And who could possibly have guessed that the album this first single was taken from would go on to become the biggest seller of all time! And yet despite going straight into the chart at number 9, The Girl is Mine went up just one more place...
(5) MARVIN GAYE – (Sexual) Healing (video)
His first top ten hit for five years, and his final one before his death in 1984, 'Healing' went up one more place.
The edited out JK bit:
(US 9) LAURA BRANIGAN – Gloria (video)
(US 4) MICHAEL McDONALD – I Keep Forgetting (video)
(US 1) JOE COCKER & JENNIFER WARNES – Up Where We Belong (video)
(41) A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS – Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You)
When this peaked at number 10 it became the band's only top ten hit, but that's pop music for you, its a case of hair today gone tomorrow....
(29) DONNA SUMMER – State Of Independence (video)
This terrific cover of a fabulous Jon and Vangelis song from the previous year peaked at number 14. Apparently Donna was nervous about appearing on Top of the Pops, hence this is another clip taken from the Late Late Breakfast Show.
(11) CLANNAD – Theme From ‘Harry’s Game’
Harry's Game was a popular ITV mini-series thriller set in Northern Ireland, and Clannad's theme peaked at number 5. And its not Enya singing here, she had recently left the group, it's her older sister.
(1) EDDY GRANT – I Don’t Wanna Dance (video)
The first of three week's at number one for Eddy ~ I bet he was dancing all the way to the bank!
(27) RAW SILK – Do It To The Music (crowd dancing) (and credits)
On its way to number 18.
Next up then will be a double bill on BBC4 next Friday, featuring November 18th 1982 followed by December 2nd 1982. Which means that we will somehow have to sandwich in November 25th, which was hosted by DLT, so won't be broadcast.
