Re: VOTE HERE, for your fav TOTPS performance of the week 10/11/83
A fair bit of meh again for me with a couple of enjoyable bits. The multi-talented (as John Peel might put it just as he did many times during the chart rundown tonight) Lionel Jefferies was fun in the Adamant (I did that on purpose) vid, The Cure were a decent watch and Bilky Joel was on yet again (being number one) with Uptown Girl, which I like in moderation. For the vote, I could see no further than my favourite Joy Division track, albeit somewhat truncated as TRM said. Strange hearing Ian Curtis' distinctive voice on the show again some three and a bit years after his tragic death.
I really like The Cure and their track, but nothing outstanding in the performance so i voted for Adam Ant and a great video instead. Watching The Eurythmics i couldn't help wondering if the three backing singers were wearing the wigs that Legs & Co wore two years previously for the Anika Japanese Boy backing performance?
