When it's your 50th time on Top of the Pops
07/03/85 (Janice Long & John Peel)
Shakin’ Stevens – “Breaking Up My Heart” (15)
Someone's given Shaky way too much Lucozade as he gets tonight's show underway. One of his most contemporary sounding songs, it went up one more place.
Madonna – “Material Girl” (5) (video)
Despite all the diamonds around her neck, it was nice to see that it was the bunch of daisies that won her over in the end. Went up two more places.
Jermaine Jackson – “Do What You Do” (18)
An actual Jackson in the studio. Peaked at number 6.
Loose Ends – “Hanging On A String (Contemplating)” (37) (breaker)
Their joint biggest hit, peaking at number 13.
Go West – “We Close Our Eyes” (31) (breaker)
Their only top ten hit, peaking at number 5.
Philip Bailey & Phil Collins – “Easy Lover” (20) (breaker)
The next number one.
David Cassidy – “The Last Kiss” (11)
An actual 70's icon in the studio. And Janice admitted to 'having him on her wall' surprising John Peel by her agility! This dramatic song featuring George Micheal no less on backing vocals peaked at number 6.
Dead Or Alive – “You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)” (1)
First of two weeks at number one.
Daryl Hall & John Oates – “Method Of Modern Love” (25) (audience dancing/credits)
Peaked at number 21.
