Posted this before, but these should have been the best-selling 40 of '89 (as per Popchartfreak charts "sales"). No apologies for the Jason Donovan inclusion, far and away his best record, cos I was also rather fond of it at the time and I didn't have the excuse of being young (I was 31 laugh.gif )

3 HEALING HANDS Elton John
4 I DONíT WANT TO LOSE YOU Gloria Estefan

6 "101"" Sheena Easton
7 ALL AROUND THE WORLD Lisa Stansfield
8 THIS WOMANíS WORK Kate Bush
9 ORDINARY LIVES The Bee Gees
10 IT'S ALRIGHT Pet Shop Boys
11 FOUR LETTER WORD Kim Wilde
12 SWEET CHILD O' MINE Guns 'n' Roses
13 THIS TIME I KNOW IT'S FOR REAL Donna Summer
14 LIKE A PRAYER Madonna
15 STOP Sam Brown
16 ROOM IN YOUR HEART Living In A Box
17 YOU GOT IT Roy Orbison
18 DEAR JESSIE Madonna
19 NOTHING HAS BEEN PROVED Dusty Springfield
20 IN PRIVATE Dusty Springfield
21 LIBERIAN GIRL Michael Jackson

Exactly the same top 3 as Dandy *.*

I very recently discovered 'Sowing The Seeds of Love' as it's sampled in the dance song 'Open Your Eyes' by Love Legend & Alex Gaudino, which was released towards the end of last year, so that led me to discover the original and it's indeed great.

I wouldn't put money on it laugh.gif

I caught him camping it up in the Priscilla Queen Of The Desert stage show though, so maybe there's a few newer fans, you never know.... biggrin.gif

I didnít spot that, what taste! *.*

I too like Sowing The Seeds Of Love, all the singles from that album were lovely. Although STSOL is very Beatles-esque so Iím not surprised you approve. Laid So Low (Tears Roll Down) is probably my favourite of theirs.
