50 YEARS OF TOP OF THE POPS : MAY 16 – MAY 22

We begin this week, with a man who sings about places, Jonathan Richman, who sang about New England, then followed it up with a bit of Egyptian Reggae. (Albeit, performed by Legs and Co here)

On the birthday trail this week is Glenn Gregory from Heaven 17.

And now, for a bit of RAWWWKKK!!!

This week’s sad anniversary, is two years since the death of Donna Summer.

And now, it’s all about the one name female singers (But not Madonna or Beyonce) for a bit ……

Toyah, the voice of The Teletubbies

Martika

Yazz

Well, after that trio, I guess you could say …… the only way is up (Boom Boom!!)

It’s the big 70 this week for Pete Townsend.

Another birthday this week is Jenny from Ace Of Base. I once convinced a friend to be a sperm donor for her, passionately pleading that all that she wanted, was another baby. (Don’t wory, the next Ace Of Base video won’t have a bad pun)

Sean Conlon, of the band known in Germany as Funf, is Drei und Dreizehn this week.

Back to the sad anniversaries, two years now since Robin Gibb died.

And a year since Ray Manzarek died. The lack of Doors TOTP performances has left me with no option but to post this.

Another week, another Sugababe birthday. Mutya Buena, since you ask.

And finally, Jerry Dammers of The Specials nudges just one year off the big 60.
