28th June

1984: Oh, Eighties singers wearing shades. The Bluebells are a prime example, and all in black to boot. Phil Oakey of the Human League had meanwhile stopped shaving properly and having haircuts. Frustrated with such laxadascial behaviour from our glamorous electro-pop stars, someone scores a direct hit at 1:37.

1996: Everything But The Girl serve as a mere modernist amuse-bouche, as the Sex Pistols had reformed, played Finsbury Park the previous weekend and for the first time were properly let into a Pops studio to do two songs. The second was surely nobody else's ideal choice. Listen closely, the cheer follows the announcement by a crucial split second.
