hahaha no no it was the Dirty Dancing song
it was an unexpe3cted music selection cos most cafes here in Denmark are very hipster and basically only play Bon Iver on a loop


I was in Copenhagen in 2017, sadly it was only 4 days tourist spots and there wasn't much time to explore any cafes trying to entice me in with Bon Iver laugh.gif (they would have had more luck with 1987 pop, though) biggrin.gif

pretty sure Bon Iver can make a living only out of the royalties from his songs being played in Danish cafes biggrin.gif

1st September 1987

It's 5 weeks on top for the unstoppable Pet Shop Boys & Dusty, as Rick Astley climbs to 3, Prince to 7, Elvis brings If I Can Dream back into the top 10 18 years on, and Dionne Warwick gets her 2nd top 10 - she would have had loads more if I'd charted earlier though. Highest new entry is the gorgeous Little Lies, Christine McVie's best song from Fleetwood Mac's Tango In The Night, in at 35. In a couple of weeks I'd watch the rural video in a Californian coastal motel as I drifted into a daze after accidentally taking one of my mum's sleeping pills instead of aspirin. That ruined the next day as I largely felt icky and didn't appreciate the stunning coastal scenery between San Fransisco and Malibu. Moral: read the packaging.

Chris Rea returns, The Housemartins make it 3 in a row, Carly Simon follows-up her comeback hit, Mick Jagger gets another solo entry 2 years after the last ones, Bon Jovi roll on, Five Star start to lose the spark, and Natalie Cole jumps back into the rundown 12 years on since she debuted - with her late dad due to debut himself by Christmas!

I gave fair warning that it would be clogging up the rundown till xmas (i checked as far as that) laugh.gif

Not to worry there'll be an invasion of obscure US hits in 2 weeks as I holiday there and have no idea what is getting airplay or selling in the UK... biggrin.gif

Tango in the Night had one of the most bizarre chart run for singles in the uk:
hit - flop - hit - flop - hit
don't think I've ever seen another album in the last 30 years doing such pattern in singles

Yes very odd that one - I guess it's down to having 3 main songwriters and having to keep all 3 happy with choice of singles:

Buckingham/Nicks/McVie/Buckingham/McVie and then the final one was a joint McVie/Buckingham. Stevie's songs around this time weren't as good as her solo stuff (she saved the best for herself I'd guess) while Christine was always very easy-going and prob went along with whatever to keep everyone happy - even when it was obvious she was writing the most-commercial songs!

8th September 1987

It's a first week on top for the 1987 12" remix of the 1969 and 1970 chart-topper from The Archies, Sugar Sugar thus grabbing the record for oldest number one to return to the top - for now. Black make it two top 10's in a row with the sublime Wonderful Life up 6, and Cliff rockets into the top 10 19 years into his chart career, Some People being one of his rather good cool pop tracks as opposed to one of his "oh dear, not weathered-well, that one" tracks. Bowie makes it 2 top 10's in a row from his latest LP, and The Beach Boys extend their run of top 10's to 19 years to the week.

Highest new entry is The Bee Gees going Depeche techno, and an abrupt change in sound with the fab You Win Again in at 12 19 years to the week since they also appeared in my first-ever chart. Second highest new entry is also a future UK chart-topper, the fab innovative M/A/R/R/S and Pump Up The Volume at 35, sampling gone mad and the sound of dance future. Little Lies leaps up 20 for Fleetwood Mac, the third top 20 off Tango In The Night, as John Cougar gets his 3rd top 20 in total.

Shaky is in at 40 with a good Supremes cover, Johnny Hates Jazz heroically follow-up at 43, and Madonna's quality-control dips a bit with Causing A Commotion at 49. Levert at 53, debuting 15 years after The O'Jays were Backstabbing on top of my charts: Lead singer Eddie Levert was dad to two of the band. Thus joining the likes of John & Julian Lennon in trailblazing dads and sons independently in my charts. Cheryl Baker is the 2nd Bucks-Fizz solo charter, with the 1969 Amen Corner chart-topper, and 8 years on from her debut as part of UK Eurovision entrants Coco in those Bad Old Days.

The Communards return, Wendy & Lisa ditto, and sneaking in is the lead track on the brand new album from Michael Jackson - a little ditty called Bad: It would actually have been much higher, but I didn't allow album tracks in or else this week most of the album (which I bought on vinyl) would have charted, followed next week by another new album clogging up the charts and kicking out at least 15 other records. So I've retrospectively given it a number 76, as these days I DO allow album tracks as I should have then. On the grounds that by the time album tracks became singles I'd often long-peaked over them.

great for Wonderful Life, such a lost classic
from the newies my favourite has to be the new Johnny Hates Jazz, bought it on single back in the day, great track
loved all those late 80s UK bands that mixed pop with a bit of soul and a bit of jazz like Sade, Swing Out Sister, Black, Johnny Hates Jazz,
nobody seems to be doing that kinda mix of music anymore

I also have a soft spot for Causin' a commotion, sure not on the same league as the True Blue singles or Who's that Girl but a good little pop song
