Will it consist of just the Top 40 or the official Top 75? Or, for that matter, the extended Top 100?! :D

You could save yourself much hassle by buying the Guiness Book of British Hit Singles (and Albums), despite the odd inaccuracy and missing tune. :)

Oh, yes. And why are you not yet in the Fantasy Football League?
It's the top 40. I'm copying the list from the retro chart section of everyhit.com. It doesn't have every week (it's split into early, mid and late for each month), but I should get 99.99% of the top 40. I'll only miss one if a song appeared at something like number 40 for one week, then dissapeared.

I don't think I'll bother with the FFL this time. I'm not really into football (apart from the World Cup, and a general interest in how Middlesbrough do). I'm in a Fantasy Formula 1 league, so that's enough for me. I like F1 quite a lot, so I'm much more interested in that, than a football one.

This post was written to the sound of "What's the colour of money", playing on my PC :D

I first heard that song on a long music show that was on TV (possibly Channel 4), and they were showing loads of videos (I remember a "Beat It"/"Eat It" video comparison was on it). The show was brilliant, and Hollywood Beyond were on it. I remember liking the song lots, and a few months later it was in the charts. Does anyone know what the programme was called?

I believe it was Music Box shown during 1986 every night from midnight until 6am. 1hr for each jockey, involving the then desireable Amanda Reddington and finishing with The Shadow. I tuned-in every saturday night without fail. :D

Without resorting to a download I am struggling to find one track I definately want in my collection and can find nowhere - Hollywood Beyond's 'What's The Colour Of Money?'. Any help?
i forgot about shakin' stevens.....have got the collection cd with the dvd. only thing is it hasn't got two of his best songs on it: true love (a cover of bing Crosby's original) and I Might (the cover was littered with Viz characters with shaky characterised as well!). damn good singer, though. want to get his new album. get in!

If you buy the DVD (not the CD with DVD) I believe you get at least the excerlent I Might. I, too, was a bit annoyed that the single was not on the CD. I have the CD-single, though, so it's not a total disaster! :D

I just have to mention that I'm totally disgusted that I Ran by A Flock of Seagulls didn't make the top 40!

I like just about any 80s music. Even stuff my friends cringe at like Hall and Oates, Huey Lewis, etc.

I'm also in a 1980s New Wave cover band. :)

IMO, not as good as The Power of Love by FgtH, but better than the J.Rush one.

Glad you mention that track because I thought the movie soundtracks was brilliant back in the 80s.

My favourite are:

Beverly Hills Cop
Footloose
Karate Kid
Lost Boys
Rocky IV
Streets Of Fire
Teen Wolf
Top Gun

Also not forgetting movie singles such as:

Ben E. King - Stand By Me
Peter Cetera - Glory of Love
Phil Collins - Against All Odds
Queen - Flash
Starship - Nothing Gonna Stop Us Now
