Cameo "Word up" the first song I remember hearing the lyrics "Wave your hands in the air like you don't care" copied too many times. "Every loser wins" back when so many people knew what was happening in Albert Square. Don't know if you remember making this chart Owen, but it was awesome as usual 🙂 thanks

Wonder if in 1986 Simon Cowell satisfied the needs of Sinitta as described in that song. Then again maybe not

Joel Newnham

Was that the album version of"Think for a minute" Owen, from "London 0 Hull 4?"

Sophie Davidson

No I'm afraid not, sorry. The rest of the chart was excellent though, as usual.

I enjoyed her stuff throughout the 80s, but started going off her in the early 90s. I wish she'd just retire now!

Sophie Davidson

Very good, until I got to the No.1

Not a Madonna fan then, Sophie?
