50 YEARS OF TOP OF THE POPS : JUN 6 – JUN 12

It’s been a struggle to get this week’s round-up done, as i’ve spent most of the week in hospital.

I’ve been diagnosed with a condition called Tomjonesitis, where you randomly start singing Tom Jones songs. I asked the doctor if it was common, he replied …… It’s Not Unusual.

And now to a song which is just as brilliant and ridiculous as my Tom Jones joke.

Meanwhile, Charlie Simpson off of Busted (but not McBusted) turns 29 this week. Pop fact, this song was originally called “Crash and Burn” but was changed after the Columbia Shuttle Disaster

This week’s sad anniversary, 4 years since the death of Stuart Cable. This, filmed in his hometown of Cwmbran.

If you don’t know Mick Hucknall by now, you will never ever know him.

Nick Rhodes from Duran Duran turns 52 this week. Incidentally (according to the Youtube bio) this performance was broadcast on 6th November 1986, the day Sir Alex Ferguson became Manchester United manager.

Rob Pilatus from Milli Vanilli would have been 49 this week. Seriously, how did people not know they didn’t sing on their records?

It got worse for Fabrice Morvan, as he lost out on an insurance ad deal to Morgan Freeman.

Meanwhile, much loved popular Darts player Jackie Wilson would have been 80 this week.,

Matt Bellamy from Muse is 36 this week. Pop fact, his dad was in The Tornadoes. You know, Telstar.

Reg Presley from The Troggs would have been 73 this week. Wet Wet Wet ensured he never had to worry about money for the last 18 years of his life. Don’t you just want to run your hands through Marti Pellow’s hair? Just me?

Holy Europop!!! It’s Robyn

And finally, some Good Souls
