Off The Chart: 15 July 1984

Is it still nostalgia if you’re listening to old records you don’t remember? Here’s your chance to find out as we go back to 1984 to dig out some of the week’s forgotten hit singles, as well as three tracks from a featured album, a track from an international chart, and the top five singles in full. Who was drafted in to sing on a top twenty hit as a last minute replacement for Freddie Mercury? Who came back from the dead to score a top five hit? And who took an ABBA song ten places higher in the chart than the super Swedes themselves? Click PLAY to find out!
