(19) SHALAMAR – Friends
Shalamar are back in the studio with a live performance of Friends which then peaked at number 12.

Soon to be the Christmas number one for the waiter from Sutton Coldfield.
(13) YAZOO – The Other Side Of Love
Another live studio performance but this song got no higher in the charts.
(35) SHAKIN’ STEVENS – Blue Christmas
This 'ep - not a single' became Shaky's fourth top tenner of 1982 when it peaked at number 2.
(5) CULTURE CLUB – Time (Clock Of The Heart) ®
Went up two more places. But edited out of the 7.30pm slot, and yet we get Shaking Stevens twice!

Now truly at its chart peak.
(21) SOFT CELL – Where The Heart Is
Marc shows off his muscles but Where the Heart Is got no higher.
(22) DAVID BOWIE & BING CROSBY – Peace On Earth – Little Drummer Boy (video)
Well if Bowie was going to do a Christmas song then it would have to be a weird one! Originally recorded for Bing Crosby's 1977 Christmas Show, about a month before Bing died, it peaked at number 3 five years later.
(1) THE JAM – Beat Surrender ®
Second and final week at number one.
(7) BLANCMANGE – Living On The Ceiling (crowd dancing) (and credits)
At its chart ceiling.
