On to the next ep ....
CJ Lewis - I recall him being in the shortlist for Best Male popstar at the 1994 Smash Hits poll winners party! All I seem to recall him doing was covers of old songs with a bit of fast rapping over them! I think he lost out to Sean Maguire!
Dreams by the Cranberries is such a tune. Around this time I went to my first ever gig which was D:Ream. I recall having a hospital appointment and telling the nurse (who was a real Hattie Jacques matron type) that I was going to a gig and she asked who, and when I said the name she didn't know them, so I said they were from Ireland and she thought I meant the Cranberries as she'd just seen them on TOTP the night before. It was probably this episode.
Come On You Reds must be one of the worst number ones ever. It makes Tony Di Bart's The Real thing seem not so bad after all. Lee Sharpe is quite fit in the video though!
Ooh Judy Cheeks! Reach is a bop and she's really cute! I recall in summer 1995 Smash Hits saying You're The Story of My Life was going to be a huge summer smash ... but it got to no. 30.
I don't know this Richard Marx song, but he looks so much better without the bouffant mullet hair.
Is Stiltskin the first of the one hit wonder Levi's advert acts? Previously they'd used classic tracks from the 60s and 70s, yet this was a current act - after this I recall Babylon Zoo, Smoke City and Mr Oizo also. Lolz at the head banging teens at the front.
Big Gay Heart is albout the only Lemonheads song I recall (and a cover of Mrs Robinson?). Evan was quite cute but I wasn't interested at the time - I only had eyes for Peter Cunnah. He looks a bit lonely on the stage all by himself!
If I recall correctly, The Real Thing only gets one week at number 1, so this should be the last time we hear this piss weak song on these repeats. 2 Unlimited's Real Thing is much better! Back on the track, no my name ain't Jack!
Now to this week's ...
