Off The Chart: 21 April 1984

Off The Chart: 21 April 1984

We’re rewinding back to 1984 on this week’s Off The Chart! Join us for two hours of forgotten and half-remembered hits, three tracks from one of the week’s big albums, a look at the day’s events, a hit from the Austrian chart and the top five in full! And since you still haven’t backed us on Patreon there’s a terrible forfeit track for you to endure when you could be enjoying the Austrian top 20 rundown and some bonus 12″ mixes on the Patreon-only version of the show. Still, it’s your loss. Which moonwalker had a hit with a song written by TV’s Richard Stilgoe? Which human rights activist was sampled for a posthumous hit single? And which solo artist was in the top ten with a medley of his former band’s songs? Click PLAY to find out!

 


If you enjoy Off The Chart and you’d like to avoid the weekly forfeit track, why not head over to our Patreon page and subscribe to us for a teeny amount of cash every month? You get access to an exclusive alternative version of the show which includes bonus 12″ mixes and the foreign chart rundown in place of the forfeit track, as well as all sorts of other bonus content including regular Further Off The Chart shows. We really appreciate it and it all goes towards the running of the site.

If you’ve missed a previous edition they’re all on our Mixcloud page, or for a taster of the music we play, listen to our Spotify playlist Way Off The Chart including one track from each show!

 

We also have a Spotify playlist for our #ICEOTWF feature, including all (well, most) of the international hits we’ve played since the feature began in March 2017. There are all sorts of oddities in here, all of which were hits somewhere in the world but not in the UK!
