TOTP 1986 - They Kamen (Nick), they SAW (Stock, Aitken and Waterman), they Con(mmunards)quered!

Okay, that last one was rubbish - but then so were The Communards!

Top of the Pops 1986!

Tony James out of Sigue Sigue Sputnik sounds Custard/Henry's Cat.

Mine was going to be 'Tay-tay-tay-tay, t-t-t-t-t-tay tay take or leave TOTP 1986'

I was panicking there wasn't a new thread so I took evasive action!

Checked it many times for my usual misspellings/missing words (sorry thread for my constant misspellings/missing words).





Thank fuck for the edit function!

All that blah about how they hyped Paul Hardcastle's theme song into the charts and it turns out it it only got to number 15!

Fuxache, Morris, we've got to live with this for months. It's worse than (spoiler:coming soon) Nu Shooz.

MM, did you get my email?

MorrisMitchener - 06 Jul 2018 20:13:55 (#7 of 1671)

I like puns. I find them quite pun(k).

MorrisMitchener - 06 Jul 2018 20:17:49 (#8 of 1671)

As for those of you who don't like punny thread titles I shall sort of quote Billy Ocean -

go and get stuffed!!

They were a bit overstaffed, Sigue Sigue Sputnik. Two drummers. Why? There's not even one drummer on the record.

Bloody hell, The Chicken Song. I really do marvel sometimes as to why anyone would go to all the trouble of going to a shop and buying stuff like this. These days its all anonymous, impulse click buying but then - the effort, the sheer effort boggles the mind.

Mick Hucknall, more than ever, looks like something something that lives under a bridge.

machiavelli - 06 Jul 2018 20:57:36 (#12 of 1671)

I'd rather jack, than Fleetwood Mac.

CaptainBlack - 06 Jul 2018 20:59:31 (#13 of 1671)

I'm sure Mick Fleetwood and John McVie are gutted in their Hawaian condos.

SaffronSunrise - 06 Jul 2018 21:04:09 (#14 of 1671)

They could have done 86-89 in one 1/2 hour programme, really.

Far too much bloody Sinitta and Chris De Burgh on that show. A few nice moments from Good Old Janice Long and David Quantick though.

TommyDGNR8 - 06 Jul 2018 21:22:13 (#16 of 1671)

We're a few years off the Reynolds Girls yet, surely?

If memory serves, the Chicken Song is Sledgehammer's Shaduppa You Face.

Arjuna - 06 Jul 2018 21:31:10 (#17 of 1671)

The Sputniks were ace. I was fortunate enough to catch them in concert.

TRaney - 06 Jul 2018 21:33:55 (#18 of 1671)

God I hated the housemartins

Arjuna - 06 Jul 2018 21:39:04 (#19 of 1671)

too twee

TRaney - 06 Jul 2018 21:40:27 (#20 of 1671)

Fouw?
