Blimey, Kim Wilde's let herself go.....
07/04/83 (Simon Bates & Peter Powell with the cast of Fame)
Dexys Midnight Runners – “The Celtic Soul Brothers” (24)
Originally released a year earlier but failed to make the top 40, this re-release fared better, peaking at number 20, and it was the band's penultimate hit, though we'd have to wait over three years for their final one.
Culture Club – “Church Of The Poison Mind” (9) (video)
The first single from their forthcoming number one album Colour by Numbers, and helped out on vocals by Helen Terry, Church of the Poison Mind peaked at number 2.
JoBoxers – “Boxerbeat” (3)
This punchy tune was now at its peak.
Twisted Sister – “I Am (I’m Me)” (29)
Jetting in all the way from New York to perform their only top 30 hit, which reached number 18.
Michael Jackson – “Beat It” (30) (video)
The follow up to Billie Jean, and the third single from Thriller, peaked at number 3
Tracie – “The House That Jack Built” (23)
Her only top ten hit, peaking a number 9. But edited out of tonight's 7.30 slot.
F.R. David – “Words” (21)
This was FR David's only top ten hit, peaking at number 2, and helped out here in the studio by an energy efficient dance routine from Zoo.
Nick Heyward – “Whistle Down The Wind” (15)
Braving a second live show after missing his cue last time, but practice makes perfect and Whistle Down the Wind went up two more places.
David Bowie – “Let’s Dance” (1) (video)
First of three weeks at number one.
Big Country – “Fields Of Fire (400 Miles)” (13) (+ credits)
Went up three more places.
Next up is April 14th 1983.
