It’s all back to ours on Off The Chart this week, except that “ours” is in fact the UK singles chart from this day in 1985! We’ll be unpacking boxes full of obscure, forgotten and neglected hits, unwrapping three of the week’s new albums, searching through piles of stuff for the best of the day’s goings-on, and finding an unexpected track from the Canadian chart at the bottom of a drawer, before settling down with a housewarming gift of the top five singles in full.
- Who was generally considered a solo act but in fact only had one solo top 40 hit?
- Whose solo hit was reworked by his old band to give them their first Japanese hit in twenty years?
- And which album was the first to be certified 10 x Platinum in the UK?
Tune in and find out!
