UK Chart Run: 6-2-1-1-2-2-8-14-22-22-26-57 (12 weeks)

A bit of a shocker this round. Yes, I started the new thread without Dobbo needing to prompt even once! ohmy.gif But aside from that, Dizzy had been doing okay up until now and I wasn't expecting it to be the next to exit... but we have declared it to be the end of the road for Vic and the Wonderstuff. I have quite the soft spot for the Wonderstuff so I'm a little sad to see this out already, although it is admittedly not as great as their best own material.

Review by PCF...

"Comedian Vic Reeves, and comedy partner-in-crime Bob Mortimer, had an alter-ego as The Pub Singer mocking a certain style of singing, but had scored an unlikely hit with a cover of Born Free when he paired up Indie band The Wonder Stuff to cover the 1969 UK/US chart-topper Dizzy, a comeback gem of a bubblegum hit from 60's hitmaker Tommy Roe. I'm very biased. Tommy Roe's Dizzy was the first single I ever bought with my own money - given to me by my great-grandparents as we headed off to Singapore for 2 years. I bought it on Changi evening market in late 1969, so it's a special record for me. Not to mention Bass-o-matic who used the rhythm sample on the brilliant Fascinating Rhythm in 1990 (aka William Orbit, 90's hitmaker galore). As a Vic & Bob fan I had mixed feelings on this cover - it was great to see Dizzy getting discovered by a new generation, it was a decent indiepop tongue-in-cheek romp, and I loved that it topped the chart, but it didn't quite have the charm of the original for me. Hey ho, I got to see Tommy Roe on tour as a result of the resurgence, and also Vic & Bob, who's comic Big Night Out had a mini-concert at the end. So, I got to see Dizzy in both versions. Result!"


So, yet again, who's out next?

Right Said Fred as well.

Also noticed that 'Any Dream Will Do' is 'Any Dream Will Don' in the poll. Simple mistake just thought I'd point it out!

Gone for Jason Donovan, but honestly I have a soft spot for all of these, most are extremely cheesy, but I can't help myself!

Yes Dandy! And it takes me 3 days to even realise laugh.gif

I quite like Dizzy, reminds me of Dave Chisnall's walk on for the darts fans out there.
