Off The Chart: 6 December 1984We’re going back to this week in 1984 on Off The Chart today, but don’t panic, it’s the week before Last Christmas entered the chart so we promise you won’t get Whamageddoned here. You will get two hours of obscure, neglected and forgotten hits, tracks from three of the week’s new albums, a round-up of the day’s events, a look at the French chart and the top five singles in full, but you should be used to that by now.

  • Which previous Christmas no.1 act had to be content with number 71 this year?
  • Which band formed in 1976 and is still going today but only ever had one hit?
  • And which album peaked at number two, spoiling a potential run of thirteen number ones?

Tune in and find out!
