The Lemon Circus

That Freddie track is great, had the song on some album but really is great, also loved the great pretender (we used to sing 'the great big bender' at school) up till then Blue Jean was winning in my fave pick from this set. Always difficult challenge as you put so many classics together. Hadn't heard Dead or Alive or Blancmange tracks (and if I have I've not retained the tunes) always interesting to hear the tracks tucked away on 12" singles back in the day, as I mostly owned the 7" radio friendly formats. Only got my first CD player in 1992 (erasures abba ep pushed me to get one) Another top show :)

Joel Newnham

Great start with Dead or Alive. Madonna was brilliant back in the day, how the mighty have fallen. Interesting mixes of Pet Shop Boys and Lisa Stansfield, not heard before. I love that Living in a Box number, whichever version. A lot of your regular favourites, another brilliant playlist Gary to cheer up a Monday :)
