Woohoo!

Six hours of TOTP action on BBC4 tonight. Fill your boots! (I am including the repeats and an hour of Tears for Fears in that count - but who doesn't want to watch extra A-ha?)

I am totally going to be reliving my teenage Aha obsession.

Quality thread title. I WAS THERE

Wembley, not Philadelphia

I think I was disengaging with pop music by this point but probably still watched TOTP (what else was there?) It was just before I got an part time job that required Thursday late night working.

THE TUBE.

THERE WAS THE TUBE.

Soul Train must have started on Channel 4 around this time, that was more my thing than The Tube

That was Richard Skinner doing the intro I think.

Dear gods that is horrible. That would work better with a different singer covering it. Harket is all emotional blizzard and ice storm not lazy summer nights.

Grateful that it was the whistle test crew who got the presentation gig.

In the music program I use (Reason), the sampler is called the NN19. Geddit?

Written in Leytonstone, round the corner from where I lived, on Grove Green Road:

“I would love a plaque here, Damon Albarn has got one on his home in Leytonstone, where is mine?”

Is that the last The Edge /Dave Evans didn't wear a wooly hat?

foxybrown - 05 Jan 2018 22:11:35 (#14 of 1085)

Old Morten is not even attempting to mime convincingly here

foxybrown - 05 Jan 2018 22:21:44 (#15 of 1085)

Ooh I loved Wham's Everything She Wants, it still sounds good

foxybrown - 05 Jan 2018 22:27:16 (#16 of 1085)

I don't remember Doug E Fresh on ToTP. Slick Rick was under threat of deportation back to the UK for years.

Will Smith pretty much nicked his act

foxybrown - 05 Jan 2018 22:33:31 (#18 of 1085)

Fergie and Andy's wedding dance was Jennifer Rush's The Power of Love.

The jokes write themselves

Arjuna - 05 Jan 2018 22:34:58 (#19 of 1085)

didn't Colonel Abrams die last year?

foxybrown - 05 Jan 2018 22:38:54 (#20 of 1085)

Yes. I didn't know his real first name was Colonel
