”Hello again, my friend”. Ah Neil Diamond from the Jazz Singer can’t beat it. No there’s no Neil Diamond in this chart so deal with it. Today it is back to 1981. We take a venture through the official chart and the week slap bang in the middle of summer. Kirsty MacColl and Bruce Springsteen debut on the top 40. There is some Adam Ant, Michael Jackson, Smokey Robinson, The Specials, Bob Marley, Tom Tom Club, Phil Collins, Ultravox, Shakin’ Stevens, Rainbow and many more. I got so damn excited by the music, a little bit of pee accidentally came out. 1981 when we were asking Margaret Thatcher to do one, and are now doing that to the male version Cameron (tosser), the world in comparison wasn’t too much different politically. You know what though, back then we were kinder, and nicer to one another through it. Take some release in the music of 1981.
