Didn't realise Dollar made a comeback lol, ultimate cheesy early 80s band!


But not as cheesy as most of the pop in 1988, we have not only the Glenn Medieros, Boy Meets Girl and Robin Beck's cheesy love ballads but also the Stock Aitken Waterman songs. I don't know why such cheesy music with trite lyrics was so popular in the late 80s laugh.gif. I guess its a bit like the early 2010s with the EDM-pop songs in the chart which sound cheesy and naff now.

Tiffany's first two weeks at No.1.


Not a big fan of 'I Think We're alone Now', its a bit too cheesy for me but some parts of the production in it I like (the synth horn bit before the last chorus).

Just watching the most recent episode shown, you can really hear how appropriate the theme tune is now, 'The Wizard' really is quite similar in style (although not quite as interesting imo) to the brilliant 'Beat Dis' by Bomb The Bass which kicked off the show.

The fab Doctorin' the House also in the episode. Must have been a big shock to many at the time to see all these dance songs taking off in the chart after years of very little dance music in the charts.

I loved the Tiffany song. Glad we got to see her last week at No.1. Should get 4 of Kylie's 5 weeks on top. Mike Smith only hosts two more shows in '88, the 10th and 31st March. There'll be the Proms coming up soon though. sad.gif

Lots of changes with Nicky Campbell's first appearance and quite funny too, no signs of nerves. Then next week we get Mark Goodiers first outing. I assume they are replacing Simon Bates & Janice Long?

Loved Gary Davies wee dig at SAW after Kylies no1 video saying "You know if you slow that Kylie record down it sounds just like Rick Astley 😂

Two chart-toppers for me in that bunch. I'll keep you in suspense a few months though laugh.gif 2 number 2's, or maybe 3, I forget, as well. That's pretty good going....
