Off The Chart: 29 July 1985

We’re off back to this week in 1985 on Off The Chart for some of the week’s less remembered hits, a look at the day’s events, three tracks from a hit album, a song from the US Billboard Hot 100 and the UK top five in full. Who was the only act to perform at Live Aid whose record sales dropped the following week (citation needed)? Who had seven albums in the chart at once? And which legendary pop duo scored their only hit of the entire 1980s this week? Click PLAY to find out!
