When that number you've been waiting for at Bingo is finally called out
17/05/84 (Simon Bates & Peter Powell)
Break Machine – “Break Dance Party” (16)
With their mixture of acrobatics and whistling, Break Machine get the show underway with their second and final top ten hit, peaking at number 9.
Deniece Williams – “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” (8)
Featuring some enthusiastic waving, this was Deneice's first hit for six years and was also her fourth and final top ten hit, taken from the movie Footloose, but it didn't quite make it to number one, as Simon so confidently predicted, stalling instead at number 2.
Marillion – “Assassing” (22) (video)
At is peak.
Hazell Dean – “Searchin’ (I Gotta Find A Man)” (28)
The first of three top ten hits for former Song For Europe contestant Hazell, peaking at number 6.
Womack & Womack – “Love Wars” (25)
The first of four top 40 hits for the husband and wife duo, Love Wars reaching number 14.
Ultravox – “Dancing With Tears In My Eyes” (29) (video)
With a nuclear power station about to go into meltdown, Midge decides to direct the video and Simon thinks it should win an award, for a single that became their third and final top ten hit, peaking at number 3.
Duran Duran – “The Reflex” (1) (rpt)
Third of four weeks at number one.
Kenny Loggins – “Footloose” (6) (audience dancing/credits)
At its peak.
Next up should be May 24th but Mike Smith is a host. And a the following week, May 31st has DLT, so BBC4 will now skip two weeks and show June 7th 1984 next.
