Sir Cliff helped lift our Christmas spirit with
the festive favourite mistletoe and wine. Not a floor filler,
but it might get the occasional play by your Christmas
party DJ either right the beginning when nobody pays any any
attention to the dj or right at the end when everyone's had plenty
of Christmas cheer.

Neighbors newlyweds Scott and Charlene were reunited in 1989 with 'Especially for you', following this Jason Donovan went on to have his own chart topping success with too many broken hearts and sealed with a kiss. Another SAW (stock Aitkin Waterman) hit factory success came from Sonia who had given Pete Waterman a hard time out side a Liverpool radio station. He invited her to sing live on his radio show and she was signed up by SAW and made her first and only UK number one single.
Jive bunny had two number ones in 1989 both of which make our naughty and but not nice 80s music list. This might be unfair because at the time these records did work in party's and would keep a dancing crowd on the dance floor for a bit. However you had to be careful no to over do it and play both of these tunes back to back. Unfortunately it seemed at the time that these tunes were played non stop on the radio and ultimately people get bored, we got very bored. To help prevent further harm befalling the disco dancing public we have kept our collection of Jive bunny records as far away from our records decks as possible and have these tunes stored in a locked vault in a secret location (well in a tescos bag at the back of the broom cupboard).
The year finished with a remix at number one, and taking us into the new decade was the updated version of Do They Know its Christmas? We like this version less than the original which we think is actually a very good pop record, its was catchy, has easy to understand sing along lyrics and was of the time, its perfect Christmas pop tune. The new version was meant to be for a new generation of record buying public and include pop artistes that would appeal to them. It did nothing like as well as the original, which until Elton Johns candle in the wind 97 was the biggest selling record of all time. The original 84 version was produced by Trevor horn the FGTH producer and former radio killing video star of the Buggles.The remake was produced by SAW and included many of their own acts as well as board wobbler and Didgeridoo playing Rolf Harris. It turned out that back in the day Rolf liked to play with more than his own didgeridoo but he did break one UK chart mile stone that we mention after the list of number one tracks of 1989. Despite the reasons and terrible plight of the people that inspired the tune the original just seemed more fun than the remake. We purchased many copies of both versions and more again, when in 2004 Band Aid 20 was released. Its not about the price tag but at at a christmas party we will always play the original, we have a feeling this tune could be re released every few years for ever. Good on ya Sir Bob, who has been to one of our discos.
The now infamous Rolf Harris had the final number one record of the sixties
and therefore the first of the seventies. By
appearing on Band aid two it means that he is the only person
to have number ones in the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's with just two
records; which means he can add this record to his criminal one.
