I don't think I like anything she did from this point on, until she did Frozen.

That was another decent episode, with highlights by Julian Cope, the Bangles and Paul Simon.

Now to look back at the thread and see what everyone else made of it. Excited

Funny to think that right now we're witnessing his career beginning at Top of the Pops and his career ending at Radio 2. It was the same with Janice Long a year or two ago.

I remember being at primary school singing that in the playground. Me and other people were doing that stereotypical Egyptian arm movement thing. happy

Is one still allowed to do that? shifty

In fact, the whole song is probably considered totally un-PC these days.

I don't think I'll ever be able to look at a young Nick Berry the same ever again.

Around this time Nik Kershaw was failing to reach the Top 40. 1986 was like a big wasteland for a lot of the acts from the early to mid 80s. Even Marilyn tried a comeback of sorts around this time with zero success. siren

My goodness, after a bit of research it turns out that the Howard Jones song FELL OUT of the Top 40 after that performance! From number 35 to 41. It was his last ever Top 40 hit!

He had two comebacks of sorts - in 1989 and 1992, would you believe. Both times missing the Top 40.

The Paul Young song also fell DOWN the chart the following week after that performance and it was his last Top 40 hit of the 80s!

I think it's more the picture where they look like a really half-hearted drag act.
