1981 DJ Music

The year started with a whimper a st Winifreds School choir but by early January the late John Lennon was back at the top spot with eternal classic Imagine. February 1981 saw a rare chart event when John Lennon was replaced at number one by John Lennon. From memory we think John Lennon's women was one of the two records that held Ultravox's Vienna to the number two position. The other track was Joe Dolce with shuddap you face, they dont make classics tracks like that anymore (thankfully). Bucks fizzed at the Euro vision song contest and won with making your mind up. They hit the top in April and Shaky reworked a couple of golden oldies to produce two number ones in 1981. Tainted love was also a reworked northern sole tune and this version by soft cell along with the Human leagues don't you want me are two of the must play new wave pop tracks of the 80s.
