We’re going back just the thirty-one years on Off The Chart to revisit the chart from this day in 1989. As usual we’ll have a lorryload of obscure, forgotten and half-remembered hits, plus three of the week’s new albums, a round-up of the day’s events, a quick peek at an international chart we’ve never looked at before, and back home for tea, biscuits and the top five in full.
- Which Belgian duo released a single with no B-side?
- Who released two different singles with the same chorus?
- And who refused to change his name to Elmer Twitch?

There’s a podcast too!
For those of you who enjoy the nonsense we talk but don’t have time to listen to the music, we’ve put the talky bits together with some exclusive extras to make a podcast! This week’s show recounts the time Bod and his friends formed a band, the one thing Kylie Minogue would change, and the adventures of criminal mastermind husband and wife team Rufus & Chaka Khan. It’ll all make sense if you listen.
