Off The Chart Gold: 23 July 1986Steve and Julian are still on holiday, but Past Steve and Former Julian are here to bring you Off The Chart Gold with a special Royal Wedding edition from 1986! Among the street parties and random tossing of confetti there’ll be the usual brace of forgotten and half-remembered hits, tracks from three of the week’s new albums, a sneaky peak at the US chart, a review of the day’s events and the top five singles in full.

  • Which single by a very famous band in disguise finally hit the chart this week fourteen years after it was recorded?
  • Which of the decade’s biggest British bands had a hit in the US that wasn’t even released in the UK?
  • And which song did Rolling Stone readers vote the third worst song of the ’80s?

Tune in and find out!
