Off The Chart: 20 September 1989We’re heading back to 1989 on this week’s Off The Chart for a stately procession through the week’s singles chart. As usual we’ll be taking in a brace of obscure, forgotten and half-remembered hits, plus three of the week’s new entries on the album chart, a round-up of the day’s events, a look at what was going on in the Dutch singles chart and the top five singles in full.

  • Whose biggest hit was an uncredited guest appearance on someone else’s record?
  • Which hit single was replaced in the shops by a different version while it was at number one?
  • And which hit was inspired by a chance meeting with Jack Nicholson?

Tune in and find out!
