The Eighties, was the last great decade for the pop single. It was the last era in which the Top 40 chart was an event. The Encyclopaedia of Classic Eighties Pop is your guide through the heydays of Top of the Pops. This book is for you if you liked the sound of a club where the drinks were free, or if you thought that working as a waitress in a cocktail bar sounded a glamorous way of escaping your humdrum existence. It's a book for you if you knew there wouldn't be snow in Africa this Christmas, or if you sometimes stood alone at parties. Do you recall a certain impudent question to Five Star on Saturday morning TV? Or are you tortured by an inability to remember what a 'Dutchie' is, and exactly why it should be passed on the left-hand side? Or maybe you just want to find out, which Eighties star made a triumphant comeback after being declared clinically dead...This is a book that will make you feel like Mr Roddy Frame of Aztec Camera who once sang that you can neither buy time nor sell your soul, the closest thing to heaven might be rock and roll.
