14/06/84 (Peter Powell & Mike Read)
The Art Company – “Susanna” (20)
Yosser Hughes gets the show underway this week it would seem, with the Art Company's only hit, which peaked at number 12.
Elton John – “Sad Songs (Say So Much)” (8) (video)
Went up one more place, but edited out of tonight's 7.30pm showing.
The Smiths – “Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now” (10)
Hearing aid in, blouse on and bush in back pocket, but this song just would not go any higher in the charts no matter how silly Morrissey dressed.
Rod Stewart – “Infatuation” (27) (video)
At its peak, and also edited out of the 7.30pm slot.
Scritti Politti – “Absolute” (33)
This follow up to Wood Beez peaked at number 17.
Ozzy Osbourne – “So Tired” (21) (video)
Looking like the disturbed lovechild of Barry Manilow and Kim Wilde in this crazy Phantom of the Opera video, Ozzy took So Tired up one more place.
Nick Heyward – “Love All Day” (31)
'The best song of the summer' got no higher in the charts.
Nik Kershaw – “I Won’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me” (18)
Became Nik's biggest hit when it just failed to make it to number one.
Frankie Goes To Hollywood – “Two Tribes” (1)
And here's the song that stopped it, introduced of course by Mike Read, straight in at number one for the first of an incredible nine weeks.
Michael Jackson – “Farewell My Summer Love” (15) (audience dancing/credits)
Cashing in on his success, this 'long lost' recording of his peaked at number 7.
It should be June 21st next, but that show is being skipped, possibly because the opening act is Gary Glitter, so BBC4 will show June 28th next.
