Off The Chart: 10 March 1982

Off The Chart: 10 March 1982

Come back to 1982 with Steve and Julian as they uncover the week’s forgotten hits on another Off The Chart! There’s also three tracks from a featured album, a hit from the Billboard Hot 100, a look at the day’s events and the top five in full, plus a terrible forfeit track for those of you who aren’t backing us on Patreon – backers get exclusive access to an alternative version of the show with bonus 12″ mixes and a look at the US top 20. Which two top five hits of 1982 were first recorded in 1939? Who followed up a 1982 hit from 1978 with a song from 1977? And which song reached the chart three times in three consecutive years without ever making the top 40? 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!
