50 YEARS OF TOP OF THE POPS : OCT 24 – OCT 30

We begin this week, in 1981, with Vangelis, he of the epic sporting anthem theme. There’ll be another sporting anthem coming soon.

80s pop legend Glenn Hoddle celebrated a birthday this week. Just think what might have been if his football career hadn’t got in the way.

I don’t care what anyone says, this is an 80s pop classic. I can’t help but wonder how many people bought this thinking Glenn and Chris were Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford from Squeeze.

By that stage though, Glenn Hoddle was a TOTP veteran. Again, this is a brilliant song, and I don’t even support Spurs.

The name’s Bon. Simon, Le Bon.

Kelly Osbourne, fading to grey, hit the big 30 this week.

New Order. You won’t regret listening to this one. (boom boom)

We end, with East Kilbride’s finest musical export. Sorry, Roddy Frame.
