You can call me an old silly if you like, but I think this is the best line-up for TOTP we’ve had for a very long time indeed. Laughter and melody, and lots of good clean fun. Here are Modern Romance!
Ah, don’t you just love those exotic Latin rhythms, eh? That’s Modern Romance, and now it’s Daryl Hall and John Oates.
Told you it was going to be a good TOTP, didn’t I? That’s The Human League at No.9. Now eyes down for a full house, No.13 – unlucky for some, Duran Duran... this is “Rio”.
The thing is... which one’s Simon? That’s Duran Duran and “Rio” which turns out to be a person rather than a geographical location. And up next, the wonderful Tears For Fears.
That’s Tears For Fears, and I really wanted that to get to No.1. Mind you, it still could. One of the singles of the year anyway. And here’s another one of them – from Blancmange... “Living on the ceiling”!
Back to No.24... Renee and Renato coming up. See if you can guess which one’s which!
What an achingly lovely melody! Renee and Renato... I think I’m going to have to have a word with them after the programme. Now back to the charts.
I can do that... gis a job! That’s Wham! at No.10 and now we’re going to rejoin the charts at No.9.
Modern Romance – Best Years Of Our Lives (32 in the chart as of the date of broadcast)
