Showaddywaddy, Under The Moon Of Love.

0:03:500:03:52

I'll explain about those sacks in just a while. Here's the sound

0:03:520:03:55

in the chart, with the big deep voice, in the start.

0:03:550:03:57

No, not Lena Zavaroni, The Manhattans.

0:03:570:04:00

# You made a promise, and you broke it

0:04:000:04:05

# He could never love you like I do

0:04:050:04:09

# Ooh I feel so bad

0:04:090:04:12

# Hurt

0:04:120:04:16

# To think that you lied to me

0:04:160:04:23

# Hurt

0:04:260:04:31

# Way down deep inside of me

0:04:310:04:37

# You said your love was true

0:04:410:04:47

# And we'd never part

0:04:470:04:52

# Now you've found someone new

0:04:550:05:00

# And it breaks my heart

0:05:000:05:06

# I'm hurt

0:05:070:05:12

# Hurt

0:05:150:05:20

# Much more than you'll ever know

0:05:200:05:26

# Hurt

0:05:300:05:34

# Because I still love you so

0:05:340:05:41

# But even though you hurt me

0:05:430:05:49

# Like no-one else could do

0:05:490:05:52

# I would never

0:05:520:05:56

# Never hurt

0:05:560:06:00

# You

0:06:000:06:07

# Even though you've taken your love from me

0:06:090:06:13

# Baby I want you back

0:06:130:06:16

# I'll never hurt you

0:06:160:06:20

# I'll never hurt you

0:06:200:06:27

# No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. #

0:06:270:06:31

The sound of The Manhattans and Hurt.

0:06:330:06:36

Now, a fortnight ago, we set a competition.

0:06:360:06:38

We invited you, in fact, to submit some names, suggestions

0:06:380:06:41

for the new title of our all-lady-dancing-group on Top Of The Pops.

0:06:410:06:46

As you can see, thousands of you sent entries in.

0:06:460:06:49

In fact, you ruined it, totally ruined it

0:06:490:06:51

because each one of these sacks holds about 2,000 or 3,000 cards,

0:06:510:06:54

we've had so many we can't announce it tonight.

0:06:540:06:56

Sorry about that but DLT, next week, will be announcing the winner

0:06:560:06:59

and the prize-winner will be on the programme.

0:06:590:07:02

Here are the ladies. See you next week for that announcement.

0:07:020:07:06

# Well I've been lookin' real hard

0:07:330:07:35

# And I'm tryin' to find a job

0:07:350:07:37

# But it just keeps gettin' tougher every day

0:07:370:07:41

# But I got to do my part cos I know in my heart

0:07:410:07:45

# I got to please my sweet baby, yeah

0:07:450:07:49

# Well, I ain't superstitious

0:07:490:07:51

# And I don't get suspicious

0:07:510:07:53

# But my woman is a friend of mine

0:07:530:07:56

# And I know that it's true that all the things that I do

0:07:560:08:01

# Will come back to me in my sweet time

0:08:010:08:05

# So keep on rockin' me baby

0:08:050:08:08

# Keep on a rockin' me baby

0:08:080:08:12

# Keep on a rockin' me baby

0:08:120:08:16

# Keep on a rockin' me baby

0:08:160:08:21

# All the way to Tacoma

0:08:230:08:24

# Philadelphia, Atlanta, L.A.

0:08:240:08:27

# Northern California where the girls are warm

0:08:280:08:32

# So I could be with my sweet baby, yeah

0:08:320:08:36

# Keep on a rockin' me baby

0:08:360:08:40

# Keep on a rockin' me baby

# Keep on a rockin' me baby

0:08:440:08:47

# Keep on a rockin' me baby

0:08:470:08:50

# Baby, baby, baby

# Keep on rockin'

0:08:520:08:54

# Rockin' me baby

0:08:540:08:56

# Keep on a rockin'

0:09:000:09:01

# Rockin' me baby

0:09:010:09:04

# Woo-hoo-hoo, yeah

0:09:060:09:10

# Don't get suspicious

0:09:100:09:12

# Now don't be suspicious

0:09:120:09:13

# Babe, you know you are a friend of mine

0:09:130:09:18

# And you know that it's true

0:09:180:09:19

# That all the things that I do

0:09:190:09:21

0:09:400:09:45

Steve Miller Band and Rockin' Me.

0:09:470:09:48

That's anonymous doing the dancing, but next week on Top of the Pops

0:09:480:09:51

we will name them, so join DLT for that.

0:09:510:09:54

In the meantime, accept no substitute, although it's just come in at this week's number 15.

0:09:540:09:58

# You think we look pretty good together

0:10:090:10:16

# You think my shoes are made of leather

0:10:160:10:22

# I'm a substitute for another guy

0:10:220:10:26

# I look pretty tall but my heels are high

0:10:260:10:29

# The simple things you see are all complicated

0:10:290:10:33

# I look bloody young, but I'm just back-dated, yeah

0:10:330:10:40

# Substitute your lies for fact

0:10:400:10:43

# I can see right through your plastic mac

0:10:430:10:47

# I look all white, but my dad was black

0:10:470:10:51

# My fine linen suit is really made out of sack

0:10:510:10:55

# I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth

0:10:570:11:04

# The north side of my town faced east

0:11:040:11:07

# And the east was facing south

0:11:070:11:11

# And now you dare to look me in the eye

0:11:110:11:14

# Those crocodile tears are what you cry

0:11:140:11:18

# It's a genuine problem, you won't try

0:11:180:11:22

# To work it out at all you just pass it by

0:11:220:11:25

# Pass it by

0:11:250:11:29

# Substitute me for him

0:11:290:11:32

# Substitute my coke for gin

0:11:320:11:35

# Substitute you for my mum

0:11:350:11:39

# At least I'll get my washing done

0:11:390:11:43

# But I'm a substitute for another guy

0:11:590:12:02

# I look pretty tall but my heels are high

0:12:020:12:06

0:12:370:12:40

# My fine linen suit is really made out of sack. #

0:12:400:12:44

There they were, live at Charlton,

0:12:470:12:49

the highest old entry this week at number 15, The Who and Substitute.

0:12:490:12:53

It's not bad form for your second single to make it into the Top 30.

0:12:530:12:56

Here's Bonnie Tyler from South Wales and she's Lost In France.

0:12:560:13:00

# I was lost in France

0:13:070:13:12

# In the fields the birds were singing

0:13:120:13:16

# I was lost in France

0:13:160:13:20

# And the day was just beginning

0:13:200:13:24

# As I stood there in the morning rain

0:13:240:13:29

# I had a feeling I can't explain

0:13:290:13:33

# I was lost in France in love

0:13:330:13:39

# I was lost in France

0:13:420:13:46

# In the street a band was playing

0:13:460:13:50

# And the crowd all danced

0:13:500:13:54

# Couldn't catch what they were saying

0:13:540:13:59

# When I looked up he was standing there

0:13:590:14:04

# And I knew I shouldn't but I didn't care

0:14:040:14:08

# I was lost in France in love

0:14:080:14:14

# Ooh la la la

0:14:140:14:16

# Ooh la la la dancing

0:14:360:14:39

# I was lost in France

0:14:440:14:48

# And the vines were over-flowing

0:14:480:14:52

# I was lost in France

0:14:520:14:56

# And a million stars were glowing

0:14:560:15:01

# And I looked round for a telephone

0:15:010:15:06

# To say baby I won't be home

0:15:060:15:09

# I was lost in France in love

0:15:090:15:16

0:16:490:16:51

Bonnie Tyler and she obviously stayed too long, went to Rouen,

0:16:540:16:58

perish the thought, she was Lost In France.

0:16:580:17:00

Right now, five gentlemen from America,

0:17:000:17:02

they are Tavares and they don't stop the music for anybody.

0:17:020:17:05

# Don't take away the music

0:17:290:17:35

# It's the only thing I've got

0:17:350:17:38

# It's my piece of the rock

0:17:380:17:44

# I knew you were always there

0:17:440:17:48

# You were my song

0:17:480:17:51

# How am I supposed to bear it

0:17:510:17:55

# Now that you've gone

0:17:550:17:58

# Would you separate the words

0:17:580:18:00

# Ooh, from a sweet melody

0:18:000:18:05

# Lady, would you take away

0:18:050:18:08

# The music from a symphony

0:18:080:18:12

# Don't take away the music

0:18:120:18:18

# It's the only thing I've got

0:18:180:18:23

# It's my piece of the rock

0:18:230:18:26

# Don't take away the music

0:18:260:18:32

# Everything else is gone

0:18:320:18:36

# Don't strip my world of its song

0:18:360:18:41

# Every time you whispered low

0:18:410:18:45

-# My heart would sing

-(My heart would sing)

0:18:450:18:49

# Now it's silent like the phone

0:18:490:18:53

# The phone that never rings, baby

0:18:530:18:56

# Memories of love's refrain

0:18:560:18:59

# Memories keep haunting me

0:18:590:19:03

# What are we doing to the song we sang

0:19:030:19:07

# What happened to our sweet harmony

0:19:070:19:10

# Don't take away the music

0:19:100:19:16

# It's the only thing I've got

0:19:160:19:20

# It's my piece of the rock

0:19:200:19:25

# Don't take away the music

0:19:250:19:31

# Everything else is gone

0:19:310:19:34

# Don't strip my world of it's song

0:19:340:19:39

# Don't take my music ooh-hoo-hoo

0:19:390:19:43

# Don't take my music no, no, no!

0:19:430:19:46

# Don't take my music

0:19:460:19:47

# Don't take it away, oh, no! #

0:19:470:19:50

This week's sound, from America, the brothers Tavares

0:19:510:19:54

and Don't Take Away The Music.

0:19:540:19:56

I thought this lot came from America, but they come from the Midlands.

0:19:560:20:00

It's The Climax Blues Band and they couldn't get it wrong.

0:20:000:20:03

# Time was drifting

0:20:120:20:14

# This rocker got to roll

0:20:140:20:17

# So I hit the road and made my getaway

0:20:170:20:22

# Restless feeling, really got a hold

0:20:220:20:27

# I started searching for a better way

0:20:270:20:33

# But I kept on looking for a sign

0:20:330:20:35

# In the middle of the night

0:20:350:20:37

# But I couldn't see the light

0:20:370:20:39

# No, I couldn't see the light

0:20:390:20:43

# I kept on looking for a way

0:20:430:20:44

# To take me through the night

0:20:440:20:47

# I couldn't get it right

0:20:470:20:49

# I couldn't get it right

0:20:490:20:53

# LA fever made me feel all right

0:20:570:21:02

# But I must admit it got the best of me

0:21:020:21:07

# Getting down, so deep I could have drowned

0:21:070:21:11

# Now, I can't get back the way I used to be

0:21:110:21:18

# But I kept on looking for a sign

0:21:180:21:20

# In the middle of the night

0:21:200:21:22

# But I couldn't see the light

0:21:220:21:24

# No, I couldn't see the light

0:21:240:21:28

# I kept on looking for a way

# To take me through the night

0:21:290:21:31

# I couldn't get it right

0:21:310:21:34

# I couldn't get it right

0:21:340:21:37

# New York City took me with the tide

0:21:560:22:00

# And I nearly died from hospitality

0:22:000:22:05

# Left me stranded, took away my pride

0:22:050:22:10

# Just another no account fatality

0:22:100:22:17

# But I kept on looking for a sign

0:22:170:22:19

# In the middle of the night

0:22:190:22:20

# But I couldn't see the light

0:22:200:22:23

# No, I couldn't see the light

0:22:230:22:26

# I kept on looking for a way

0:22:260:22:28

# To take me through the night

0:22:280:22:30

# I couldn't get it right

0:22:300:22:32

# I couldn't get it right

0:22:320:22:35

# I kept on looking for a sign

0:22:350:22:37

# In the middle of the night

0:22:370:22:39

# But I couldn't see the light

0:22:390:22:42

# No, I couldn't see the light

0:22:420:22:44

# I kept on looking for a way

0:22:440:22:46

# To take me through the night

0:22:460:22:48

# Couldn't get it right

0:22:480:22:51

# Couldn't get it right. #

Climax Blues Band and they Couldn't Get It Right.

0:23:190:23:22

This week's number two ought to be number one. Not just because they're standing here,

0:23:220:23:26

but here are three members from Chicago.

0:23:260:23:28

There's Terry and Peter and Danny, welcome to the UK.

0:23:280:23:32

Can I start with you, Terry? Where did you get the song from?

0:23:320:23:35

You ought to start with him, since he wrote this song.

0:23:350:23:38

I wanted you to say that so I could get to him, you see. Peter...

0:23:380:23:40

Well, actually you should... No... I did write this song. It was from experience.

0:23:400:23:44

-If You Leave Me Now, how did it come about? I mean, somebody wandered out of your life?

-Many times.

0:23:440:23:49

I don't know, I just wrote it.

0:23:490:23:51

-I don't know, you're putting me on the spot. I've no idea.

-No idea?

0:23:510:23:54

And a little tear appears on one cheek. Danny, you're tired because of the jetlag.

0:23:540:23:59

-How long are you in the UK for?

-Two more days and then we go to Paris.

0:23:590:24:03

I hope you can hang around long enough to see you take over the number one spot.

0:24:030:24:07

It's got to be number one next week.

0:24:070:24:09

On Top Of The Pops, here's this week's number one. I hope you

0:24:090:24:12

enjoyed the programme, I've got my fingers crossed for Chicago, but in the meantime,

0:24:120:24:15

let's take a journey nowhere near Chicago, the Mississippi and Pussycat.

0:24:150:24:18

# Well you can hear the country song from far

0:24:180:24:24

# And someone play the honky tonk guitar

0:24:260:24:31

# Where all the lights will go on one by one

0:24:340:24:39

# People enjoying the sun

0:24:410:24:43

# And the wind takes it away

0:24:430:24:48

# Where the Mississippi rolls down to the sea

0:24:500:24:54

# And lovers found the place they like to be

0:24:570:25:03

# How many times before this song was ending

0:25:050:25:11

# Love and understanding everywhere around

0:25:110:25:17

# Mississippi

0:25:210:25:27

# I'll remember you

0:25:300:25:33

# Whenever I shall go away

0:25:360:25:40

# I'll be longing for the day

0:25:400:25:44

# That I will be in Greenville again

0:25:440:25:49

# Mississippi

0:25:520:25:57

# You'll be on my mind

0:26:010:26:06

# Every time I hear this song

0:26:090:26:13

# Mississippi rolls along

0:26:130:26:17

# Until the end of time

0:26:170:26:20

# Now the country song for ever lost its soul

0:26:290:26:34

# When the guitar player turns to rock'n'roll

0:26:360:26:42

# And every time when summer nights are falling

0:26:440:26:50

# I always will be calling

0:26:500:26:54

# Dreams of yesterday

0:26:540:27:00

# Mississippi

0:27:000:27:06

# I'll remember you

0:27:090:27:12

# Whenever I shall go away

0:27:150:27:19

# I'll be longing for the day

0:27:190:27:23

# That I will be in Greenville again

0:27:230:27:28

# Mississippi

0:27:310:27:37

# You'll be on my mind

0:27:400:27:45

# Every time I hear this song

0:27:480:27:51

# Mississippi rolls along

0:27:510:27:56

# Until the end of time

0:27:560:27:59

# Every time I hear this song

0:28:020:28:07

# Mississippi rolls along until the end of time. #
