We’ve crammed a surprising amount into this week’s Off The Chart, including a metric shedload of obscure, forgotten and overlooked hits from this day in 1987. We’ve also shoehorned in three of the week’s new albums, a round-up of the day’s events, a track from the Canadian chart and a song from a John Peel session broadcast on this day, and still somehow found room for all six songs in this week’s top five. Phew.
Who had top 40 hits with two different surnames, but not with a combination of the two?
Who got the original of a club classic into the top ten by talking over it?
And which iconic duo broke up because one of them had to go to Monaco for his day job?
