Top of the Pops – 12 September 2020 – 12/9/2020 – Saturday – BBC Two
1980 – Big Hits
Top of the Pops
British pop and the BBC’s flagship chart show said goodbye to the 70s and trembled on the edge of a new era for the show, for British music and for British society. This meant a continuing love for the nutty boys, Madness, who feature in this compilation with My Girl, and the man with the best cheekbones in pop, Adam Ant, gave us Antmusic.
We get to check out The Pretenders’ first number one, Brass in Pocket, alongside Dexys Midnight Runners’ tribute to soul legend Geno Washington. There are the early stirrings of new romantic with Spandau Ballet, and it’s a veritable mod revival with The Piranhas and 2-Tone with The Beat.
Plus Hot Chocolate, OMD, Motorhead and many more top hits proving the 80s were truly beginning
