Bucks Fizz – “New Beginning (Mamba Seyra)” (11)
Beginning tonight's show with new member Shelley Preston, who looked liked she was planning on going to the gym afterwards, this song was to be their seventh and final top ten hit when it peaked at number 8.
A-ha – “Hunting High & Low” (5) (video)
At its peak.
Amazulu – “Too Good To Be Forgotten” (9)
Either my telly was going on the blink, or someone was messing around with the volume control! Their only top ten hit, peaking at number 5.
Bananarama – “Venus” (22) (breaker)
This Shocking Blue cover became their first top ten hit for two years when, just like the 1970 original, it made it to number 8.

Peaked at number 14.
Owen Paul – “My Favourite Waste Of Time” (14) (breaker)
His only hit, peaking at number 3.
Nu Shooz – “I Can’t Wait” (3)
Making their debut in the studio, and it was worth it - the song went up one more place.
The Housemartins – “Happy Hour” (12) (video)
Became the first of two top ten hits for the band when it peaked at number 3.
Doctor & The Medics – “Spirit In The Sky” (1) (video)
