Chart Music #44: November 8th 1984 – Yo! Bum Rush The Quo

cm044-382

The latest episode of the podcast which asks: is Simon Bates negging or cock-blocking?

Into the penultimate stretch of the Critics’ Choice series, Pop-Crazed Youngsters, and Our Sarah has taken us all the way back to the time when her keen Pop sensibilities were hauling itself upright from the ooze. And she. Has. Chosen. Well.

We’re weeks away from Band Aid and the Eighties are already starting to ming of unwashed cock, but this episode – presented LIVE IN THE STUDIO by Geoffrey and Pigwanker General – is nowhere near as horrific as it could have been, even though there’s some right catshit strewn about. Limahl has the last laugh, and is never heard of again. Status Quo are taken to the tip by the Council. Billy Ocean and Eugene Wilde give us a remake of Billie Jean and Sexual Shakin’. Gary Numan’s weave makes its TOTP debut. But we get to see Depeche Mode’s career turn on a sixpence while they bang on some hunks of concrete, and we get the best Number One of the year that doesn’t involve Frankie.

Sarah Bee and Taylor Parkes join Al Needham for a critical piss that streams out the bottom of the trouser leg of 1984, veering off on such tangents as the uselessness of Godzooky, Eighties Video Cliche Watch, Numanoid laundry problems, Gary Davies Sex Music, BanterGod, and Heads-Down, No-Nonsense Masturbation. Oh, the swearing!
