23/10/86 (Gary Davies)
The Pretenders – “Don’t Get Me Wrong” (14)
Gettingthe show underway with what became their fourth of six top ten hits when it peaked at number 8.
Midnight Star – “Midas Touch” (10) (video)
The costumes stood out more than the song for me, but Midas Touch did reach number 8.
The Housemartins – “Think For A Minute” (22)
I liked the bit where they were all looking round for the phantom trumpet player :-) The song peaked at number 18.
Billy Idol – “To Be A Lover” (27) (video)
Peaked at number 22.
The Mission – “Stay With Me” (30) (breaker)
Their debut top 40 hit but it got no higher.
Gwen Guthrie – “(They Long To Be) Close To You” (29) (breaker)
Peaked at number 25.
Cyndi Lauper – “True Colors” (12)
I was a bit worried for her surrounded by all that smoke! It was a good song but number 12 was as high as it got.
Nick Berry – “Every Loser Wins” (1) (video)
Second of three weeks at number one.
Bangles – “Walk Like An Egyptian” (6) (video/credits)
A great video to end the show, and the song went up three more places.
30th October is next.
