It's such an amazing pop song and I will jump at any great HL track post 1983 because the 'classic' bands of that era seemed to flop hard post 1985 and we are left in that weird 1986-92 era when house came alongside pure cheese and metal bands going pop. I'm enjoying it but the 1979-84 era was the best and most creative in British music for me.

Thanks steve yes i agree with you about 79- 84 in terms of sheer volume of varied high quality pop. I also feel the same about 64-69 when most modern pop music has roots established and boundaries broken. My own fave era is 71-74 but thats prob more to do withbeing 13 through 16 years old which are impressionable nostalgic years for most people.

Mind you every year has great records, though whther they are all chart hits is another topic.... smile.gif

12th May 1987

It's swap around in the top 2, as Living In A Box edge out Crowded House after just one week on top, and T.Rex get another posthumous remix at 3. I'm not sure that Marc Bolan would have approved of his fan club updates, but it gives the brilliant Get It On more chart points/"sales" for the all-time charts. Zodiac Mindwarp (great name!) leaps up to 6 and is indeed the prime mover inside the 40 in a quiet week. OMD get yet another top 10, 7 years-worth and counting, and Johnny Hates Jazz get a first.

Jesus & Mary Chain go top 20, Elvis gets a Bossa Nova Baby Fun In Acapulco boost from the Tube I think, and Sly & Robbie Boops up to 19. Big jumps into the 40 for Mint Juleps, The Cult & Robbie Nevil, while Carly Simon gets another top 40 new entry, and The Housemartins come over all excited about it. Darn the lower end lots of minor entries for long-running acts & a re-record for Johnny Clegg of his 1983 minor hit.
