The Clash ~ provide us with the first music of 1980, though they were still refusing to appear in person on the show.
Madness ~ so the first band we see are a white suited Madness, with 'their best single to date' My Girl.
Paul McCartney ~ at his chart peak now with Wonderful Christmastime, but festive records so quickly lose their appeal once the new year is here.
The Pretenders ~ a new studio performance of the song that would replace Pink Floyd at number one in a couple of weeks time.
David Bowie ~ Peter introduces it as John I'm Only Dancing Again, but it's the video of the 1972 original version of the song.
Boney M, The Beat and Fiddler's Dram were all edited out of the 7.30 show on BBC4, but all should be available to see later or on iplayer.
Kurtis Blow ~ another 'festive' offering and the second time now for one of these new fangled rap records on the show - must've given Will Smith a few ideas this one. Number 30 was its peak.
Billy Preston and Syreeta ~ a second showing for this classic love ballad duet climbing its way towards the top ten.
Legs & Co ~ begin their final full year on the show by disco dancing to Chic's last top 30 hit (not including remixes).
Dr Hook ~ had obviously recently become more available with this being their second TOTPs studio appearance since Christmas Day. Ray Sawyer looking a bit like a cowboy Bobby Ball, but with an eye patch instead of braces.
Pink Floyd ~ begin the 1980's still at number one in the charts having sold 'nearly a million records'.
Rose Royce ~ play us out with their final top 20 hit just two places below its peak in the charts.
Next up is the 10th January 1980 which will be on BBC4 in two weeks time (Sky at Night next week).
