50 YEARS OF TOP OF THE POPS : MAR 28 – APR 3

We begin this week with a would be birthday, as Jon Lee from Feeder would have been 46 this week. You’re best to ignore Jamie Theakston getting the name of the song wrong.

And now, for something completely different.

Terry Jacks turned 70 this week. I’d love to post a video of him, but there is none, so i’m posting a video of Westlife covering him. I’m sorry. I’m really really sorry.

Now, for Northern Ireland’s greatest musical talent. No, not Dana, but he comes from the same city (Well, if you want to be pedantic, not really, as she was born in London)

Sadly gone 19 years now.

Eric Clapton was 69 this week. This song is a forgotten classic.

I’ve spent all this week trying to remember who won the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest. Oh wait, it’s all coming back to me now.

In the history of Boybanders gone solo, this song is up there with the best.

New York, London, Paris, Munich. Everybody’s talking about this guy’s suit.

Hannah Spearritt from S Club 7 turns 33 this week. How old does that make you feel?

30 years ago this week since Marvin Gaye died. Scraping the barrel here, but here’s a Paul Young cover.

Back to this week’s birthdays ….. Karen Woodward of Bananarama, or, Mrs Ridgeley. What an A List couple that would have been in 1983.
