0:03:530:03:57

Now then. That was number...wooh!

0:03:570:04:02

Marc and company there. Number 42 in the hit parade, that is.

0:04:020:04:05

It's called Laser Love with, of course, T-Rex

0:04:050:04:08

and right over there I can see from way across the seas, Pussycat. Oh!

0:04:080:04:13

MUSIC: "Mississippi" by Pussycat

0:04:170:04:20

# Well you can hear the country song from far

0:04:250:04:31

# And someone play the honky tonk guitar

0:04:330:04:39

# Where all the lights will go out one by one

0:04:410:04:46

# Where people join the sun And the wind takes it away

0:04:460:04:53

# Where the Mississippi rolls down to the sea

0:04:560:05:01

# And lovers found the place they like to be

0:05:030:05:09

# How many times before this song was ending

0:05:110:05:16

# Love and understanding everywhere around?

0:05:160:05:23

# Mississippi

0:05:260:05:33

# I'll remember you

0:05:340:05:39

# Whenever I shall go away

0:05:410:05:45

# I'll be longing for the day

0:05:450:05:48

# That I will be in Greenville again

0:05:480:05:54

# Mississippi

0:05:570:06:03

# You'll be on my mind

0:06:050:06:12

# Every time I hear this song

0:06:120:06:17

# Mississippi roll along until the end of time

0:06:170:06:24

# Now the country song forever lost its soul

0:06:320:06:37

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

0:06:400:06:44

# And every time when summer nights are falling

0:06:470:06:53

# I always will be calling Dreams of yesterday

0:06:530:07:00

# Mississippi

0:07:030:07:09

# I'll remember you

0:07:110:07:15

# Whenever I shall go away

0:07:170:07:22

# I'll be longing for the day

0:07:220:07:25

That I will be in Greenville again

0:07:250:07:31

# Mississippi

0:07:330:07:39

# You'll be on my mind

0:07:410:07:48

# Every time I hear this song

0:07:490:07:53

# Mississippi roll along until the end of time

0:07:530:08:01

# Every time I hear this song

0:08:040:08:08

# Mississippi roll along

0:08:080:08:12

# Until the end of time. #

0:08:120:08:16

0:11:270:11:29

Yeah! Now, then.

0:11:310:11:32

At number 30, it's England Dan and John Ford Coley there.

0:11:320:11:36

I'd Really Love To See You Tonight is the title of the tune.

0:11:360:11:40

We're going to see some of our guys and gals soon up here!

0:11:400:11:43

# Hello, yeah, it's been a while

0:11:500:11:52

# Not much

0:11:520:11:54

# How 'bout you?

0:11:540:11:56

# I'm not sure why I called

0:11:580:12:00

# I guess I really just wanted to talk to you

0:12:000:12:05

# I was thinking maybe later on

0:12:050:12:09

# We could get together for a while

0:12:090:12:12

# It's been such a long time

0:12:130:12:15

# And I really do miss your smile

0:12:150:12:20

# I'm not talking 'bout moving in

0:12:200:12:23

# And I don't want to change your life

0:12:230:12:27

# But there's a warm wind blowing the stars around

0:12:270:12:32

# And I'd really love to see you tonight

0:12:320:12:35

# We could go walking through a windy park

0:12:420:12:46

# Take a drive along the beach

0:12:460:12:49

# Or stay at home and watch TV

0:12:490:12:53

# You see, it really doesn't matter much to me

0:12:530:12:57

# I'm not talking 'bout moving in

0:12:570:13:00

# And I don't want to change your life

0:13:000:13:04

# But there's a warm wind blowing the stars around

0:13:040:13:08

# And I'd really love to see you tonight

0:13:080:13:12

# I won't ask for promises

0:13:130:13:17

# So you don't have to lie

0:13:170:13:20

# We've both played that game before

0:13:210:13:24

# Say I love you, then say goodbye

0:13:240:13:28

# I'm not talking 'bout moving in

0:13:280:13:31

# And I don't want to change your life

0:13:310:13:34

# But there's a warm wind blowing the stars around

0:13:340:13:39

# And I'd really love to see you tonight

0:13:390:13:43

Really love to see you tonight

0:13:410:13:43

# I'm not talking 'bout moving in

0:13:430:13:46

0:13:460:13:50

Really love to see you tonight

Hey!

0:14:060:14:07

Now, then, ladies and gentlemen,

0:14:070:14:09

HMS London, the destroyer, has been recalled from NATO service in the North Sea

0:14:090:14:13

so these lads could come on Top Of The Pops tonight.

0:14:130:14:16

-What have you got to remember?

-Detroit Spinners.

0:14:160:14:18

-What's it called?

-Rubber Man Man. No, Rubberband Man.

0:14:180:14:21

Rubberband Man, with the one and only Ruby Flipper.

0:14:210:14:24

Thank you very much, indeed.

0:14:240:14:26

# Hand me down my walking cane

0:15:050:15:08

# Hand me down my hat

0:15:080:15:10

# Hurry now and don't be late

0:15:100:15:12

# Cos we ain't got time to chat

0:15:120:15:15

# You and me, we're going out

0:15:150:15:17

# To catch the latest sounds

0:15:170:15:20

# Guaranteed to blow your mind

0:15:200:15:22

# So high you won't come down

0:15:220:15:25

# Hey, y'all, prepare yourself

0:15:250:15:27

# For the rubberband man

0:15:270:15:30

# You never heard a sound

0:15:300:15:32

# Like the rubberband man

0:15:320:15:35

# You're bound to lose control

0:15:350:15:37

# When the rubberband starts to jam

0:15:370:15:39

# Oh, Lord, this dude is outta sight

0:15:420:15:45

# Everything he does

0:15:450:15:47

# Seems to come out right

0:15:470:15:49

# Once I went to hear them play

0:15:490:15:51

# At a club outside of town

0:15:510:15:54

# I was so surprised, I was hypnotised

0:15:540:15:56

# By the sound this cat's putting down

0:15:560:15:59

# When I saw this short, fat guy

0:15:590:16:01

# Stretch a band between his toes

0:16:010:16:04

# Hey, I laughed so hard cos the man got down

0:16:040:16:06

# When he finally reached his goal

0:16:060:16:09

# Hey, y'all, prepare yourself

0:16:090:16:11

# For the rubberband man

0:16:110:16:14

# You never heard a sound

0:16:140:16:16

# Like the rubberband man

0:16:160:16:19

# You're bound to lose control

0:16:190:16:21

# When the rubberband starts to jam

0:16:210:16:24

# Got that rubberband

0:16:240:16:27

# Up on his toes

0:16:270:16:30

# And then he wriggled it up

0:16:300:16:32

# All around his nose

0:16:320:16:34

# Do-do-do do-do-do-do do-do

0:16:340:16:37

APPLAUSE

0:16:410:16:43

A-ha! Now then, as it happens

0:16:440:16:46

there's a big, fine body-building lad here. Show us your muscles.

0:16:460:16:50

Listen, at number 20, ladies and gentlemen,

0:16:500:16:52

it so happens it's the Manhattans and one called The Hurt,

0:16:520:16:56

right this second, right now.

0:16:560:16:58

You made me a promise.

0:16:580:17:01

And you broke it.

0:17:010:17:03

He could never love you like I do.

0:17:030:17:07

Oh, I feel so bad.

0:17:070:17:09

# Hurt

0:17:100:17:15

# To think that you lied to me

0:17:150:17:22

# Hurt

0:17:250:17:29

# Way down deep inside of me

0:17:290:17:35

# You said your love was true

0:17:390:17:45

# And we'd never part

0:17:450:17:51

# Now you've found someone new

0:17:530:17:59

# And it breaks my heart

0:17:590:18:04

# I'm hurt

0:18:060:18:11

# Hurt

0:18:140:18:19

# Much more than you'll ever know

0:18:190:18:25

# Hurt

0:18:280:18:33

# Because I still love you so

0:18:330:18:40

# But even though you hurt me

0:18:420:18:47

# Like no-one else could do

0:18:470:18:50

# I would never

0:18:500:18:54

# Never hu-urt

0:18:540:18:58

# You... #

0:18:580:19:05

Even though you've taken your love from me,

0:19:070:19:11

baby, I want you back.

0:19:110:19:13

# Never gonna hurt you... #

0:19:130:19:17

I'll never hurt you.

0:19:140:19:16

# Never

0:19:160:19:18

# I'll never hurt you

0:19:180:19:22

# Never

0:19:220:19:25

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

0:19:250:19:30

# Never

0:19:300:19:32

# I'll never hurt you

0:19:320:19:36

0:19:390:19:42

APPLAUSE

0:19:420:19:44

Now then, at number 49,

0:19:440:19:46

0:19:460:19:50

Yoo-hoo!

0:20:100:20:14

# I asked our position

0:20:140:20:16

# The crew didn't know

0:20:160:20:18

# They were all jigging

0:20:180:20:20

# Up in the rigging

0:20:200:20:22

# Cos the captain loves to rock and roll

0:20:220:20:25

# Loves to rock and roll

0:20:250:20:27

# I looked out to sea

0:20:270:20:29

0:20:290:20:31

# The ship kept on sailing

0:20:310:20:33

# Right into the night

0:20:330:20:36

0:20:360:20:39

# Whoo!

0:21:000:21:01

# Pretty soon, the captain was out of control

0:21:050:21:08

# He said, "This is the place if you got the soul"

0:21:080:21:12

# Keep on cruising

0:21:120:21:14

0:22:130:22:15

Oh, oh, how to get sea sick on Top Of The Pops.

0:22:150:22:19

Ladies and gentlemen, at number 18, I'll Meet You At Midnight,

0:22:190:22:23

a beautiful tune from the one and only Smokie!

0:22:230:22:27

# A summer evening on the Champs-Elysees

0:22:320:22:35

# A secret rendezvous they planned for days

0:22:350:22:39

# A sea of faces in a crowded cafe

0:22:390:22:43

# A sound of laughter as the music plays

0:22:430:22:47

# Jean-Claude was a student at the universite

0:23:020:23:07

# Louise-Marie was just a world away

0:23:070:23:10

# He recalled the night they met was warm with laughter

0:23:140:23:18

# The words were music as she turned away

0:23:180:23:22

# I'll meet you at midnight

0:23:240:23:27

# Under the moonlight

0:23:270:23:31

# I'll meet you at midnight

0:23:310:23:34

# But Jean-Claude and Louise-Marie will never be

0:23:340:23:38

# Each cigarette would light a thousand faces

0:23:510:23:55

# Each hour that passed seemed like a thousand years

0:23:550:23:59

# Midnight was turning into empty spaces

0:24:020:24:06

# The sound of laughter disappeared

0:24:060:24:09

# I'll meet you at midnight

0:24:110:24:15

# Under the moonlight

0:24:150:24:17

# I'll meet you at midnight

0:24:190:24:22

# But Jean-Claude and Louise-Marie will never be

0:24:220:24:26

# A summer morning on the Champs-Elysees

0:24:420:24:46

# The empty table in the street cafe

0:24:460:24:50

# The sunlight melting through an open doorway

0:24:540:24:57

# Jean-Claude was left to face another day

0:24:570:25:00

# I'll meet you at midnight

0:25:030:25:06

# Under the moonlight

0:25:060:25:10

# I'll meet you at midnight

0:25:100:25:13

# I'll meet you at midnight

0:25:160:25:19

# Under the moonlight

0:25:190:25:23

# I'll meet you at midnight

0:25:230:25:26

# But Jean-Claude and Louise-Marie will never be. #

0:25:260:25:30

Now it's been number one for ages and ages, but still a great tune.

0:25:420:25:46
