Greetings, pop-pickers.

Mark Radcliffe here, with another batch of musical conch shells,

0:00:160:00:19

gathered from the foreshore of pop.

0:00:190:00:20

Here, put this one to your ear. Can you hear fiddles?

0:00:200:00:23

# Poor old Johnny Ray

0:00:250:00:29

# Sounded sad upon the radio Moved a million hearts in mono

0:00:290:00:35

# Our mothers cried

0:00:350:00:39

# Sang along Who'd blame them?

0:00:390:00:41

# You're grown # You're grown up

0:00:440:00:45

# So grown # So grown up

0:00:450:00:48

# Now I must say more than ever

0:00:480:00:50

# Come on, Eileen

0:00:500:00:53

# Toora-loora-toora-loo-rye-aye

0:00:530:00:59

# And we can sing just like our fathers

0:00:590:01:02

# Come on, Eileen, oh I swear # What he means

0:01:050:01:09

# At this moment you mean everything

0:01:090:01:13

# With you in that dress Oh my thoughts I confess

0:01:130:01:17

# Verge on dirty Ah, come on, Eileen

0:01:170:01:22

# Come on, Eileen

0:01:300:01:31

# These people round here

0:01:360:01:38

# Wear beaten-down eyes Sunk in smoke-dried faces

0:01:390:01:42

# They're resigned to what their fate is

0:01:420:01:45

# But not us # No never

0:01:450:01:47

# No, not us # No never

0:01:470:01:49

# We are far too young and clever

0:01:490:01:53

# Whatever

0:01:530:01:54

# Toora-loora-toora-loo-rye-aye

0:01:540:01:59

# And you'll hum this tune forever

0:02:000:02:03

# Come on, Eileen

0:02:060:02:07

# Oh I swear # What he means

0:02:070:02:10

# Ah, come on Let's take off everything

0:02:100:02:14

# Pretty red dress, Eileen # Tell him yes

0:02:140:02:17

# Ah, come on, let's...

0:02:170:02:20

# Ah, come on, Eileen

0:02:200:02:24

# Come on, Eileen Ta-loo-rye-aye

0:02:260:02:34

# Now you are grown # Now you have shown

0:02:340:02:38

# Oh, Eileen

0:02:380:02:42

# I said, "Come on, Eileen"

0:02:420:02:44

# Cos things they are real Got to show how you feel

0:02:440:02:49

# Now we must say more than ever Things round here will change

0:02:490:02:54

# I said Toora- loora-toora-loo-rye-aye

0:02:540:03:01

# Come on, Eileen

0:03:040:03:05

# Oh I swear # What he means

# At this moment you mean everything

0:03:070:03:11

# You in that dress... #

0:03:110:03:14

Back with a new album after 26 years, and back on stage,

0:03:140:03:17

though thankfully having had a shave and bought shirts,

0:03:170:03:19

Dexy's Midnight Runners.

0:03:190:03:21

How we doing?

0:03:220:03:24

Yes, fine thanks. And look at those Christmas trees.

0:03:240:03:28

Whenever I hear Example, I just feel so festive. Move over, Noddy Holder.

0:03:280:03:32

# Or afraid of flying, no

0:03:320:03:37

# I've never been afraid of the wildest fights

0:03:370:03:40

# Not afraid of dying

0:03:400:03:44

# But now I want off this ride Cos you're scaring me

0:03:440:03:49

# And I don't like where we're going

0:03:490:03:52

# I need a new fun fair Cos you're scaring me

0:03:520:03:56

# And I don't like where we're going

0:03:560:03:59

# And now you're going to miss me

0:03:590:04:03

# I know you're going to miss me... #

0:04:030:04:05

Louder!

0:04:050:04:07

# I guarantee you'll miss me

0:04:070:04:10

# Cos you changed the way you kiss me. #

0:04:100:04:13

CHEERING

0:04:150:04:16

Top Of The Pops, all together now. Here we go!

0:04:220:04:25

# Cos you changed the way you kiss me

0:04:250:04:29

# We used to be so so soulful Al Green on the background vocals

0:04:290:04:32

# T-Total were on the next high

0:04:320:04:34

# We get by with a so-cool soul mate

0:04:340:04:36

# Made for each other chit-chat

0:04:360:04:38

# But that dried up Wise up to the cutting-edge facts

0:04:380:04:41

# Now I'm chilling on my Jack Jones Looking for a way back home

0:04:410:04:43

# But I can't get back

0:04:430:04:45

# Our love feels wrong Please wind it back

0:04:450:04:47

# Our love feels wrong Can't hide the cracks

0:04:470:04:51

# I guarantee you'll miss me

0:04:510:04:55

# Cos you changed the way you kiss me. #

0:04:550:04:59

Is everybody still here? CHEERING

0:05:000:05:03

Put your hands in the air. Go!

0:05:030:05:04

Clap! Clap! Clap! Keep it going.

0:05:040:05:09

# I've never been afraid of the highest heights

0:05:090:05:13

# Or afraid of flying, no

0:05:130:05:21

# Not afraid of dying

0:05:210:05:23

# I need a new fun fair Cos you're scaring me

0:05:240:05:28

# And I don't like where we're going

0:05:290:05:31

# I guarantee you'll miss me

0:05:310:05:35

# Cos you changed the way you kiss me. #

0:05:350:05:38

All right, everybody. Let's have it!

0:05:380:05:40

CHEERING

0:05:400:05:43

Go! Go!

0:05:430:05:45

All together now!

0:05:510:05:53

# Cos you changed the way you kiss me

0:05:530:05:57

# Our love feels wrong Please wind it back

0:05:580:06:01

# Our love feels wrong Can't hide the cracks

0:06:010:06:05

# I guarantee you'll miss me

0:06:050:06:09

# Cos you changed the way you kiss me. #

0:06:090:06:13

One more time - everybody with their hands in the air.

0:06:130:06:17

CHEERING

0:06:170:06:18

# I guarantee you'll miss me. #

0:06:200:06:23

'Yes, missing you already(!)'

0:06:230:06:24

# Cos you changed the way you kiss me. #

0:06:240:06:28

'Ah, right. "Sev-en!"'

0:06:280:06:30

Calm down ladies, it's only Eurovision beefcake Englebert.

0:06:300:06:34

# I wonder should I go or should I stay?

0:06:340:06:38

# The band had only one more song to play

0:06:400:06:46

# And then I saw you out the corner of my eye

0:06:460:06:52

# A little girl alone and so shy

0:06:530:06:58

# I had the last waltz with you

0:06:590:07:02

# Two lonely people together

0:07:080:07:11

# I fell in love with you

0:07:140:07:21

# The last waltz should last forever

0:07:210:07:26

# But the love we had was going strong

0:07:320:07:36

# And through the good and bad we'd get along

0:07:370:07:42

# And then the flame of love died in your eyes

0:07:450:07:50

# My heart was broke in two when you said goodbye

0:07:510:07:56

# I had the last waltz with you

0:07:560:08:01

# Two lonely people together

0:08:050:08:10

# I fell in love with you

0:08:120:08:18

# The last waltz should last forever

0:08:180:08:24

# It's all over now

0:08:250:08:28

# Nothing left to say

0:08:280:08:31

# Just my tears and the orchestra playing

0:08:310:08:38

# La, la, la, la, la, La, la, la, la, la

0:08:400:08:44

# La, la, la, la, la, La, la, la, la, la

0:08:460:08:51

# I had the last waltz with you

0:08:510:08:55

# Two lonely people together

0:09:000:09:04

# I fell in love with you

0:09:070:09:12

# The last waltz should last forever

0:09:130:09:19

# La, la, la, la, la, La, la, la, la, la. #

0:09:240:09:28

My favourite singer named after a Teutonic classical composer.

0:09:280:09:31

Englebert Humperdinck.

0:09:310:09:33

Right, here's Ultravox.

0:09:330:09:34

Midge Ure was appearing in panto as Dandini at the time,

0:09:340:09:37

which explains the hairstyle. And clock Billy Currie on piano,

0:09:370:09:40

Boy, is he pleased to see the camera.

0:09:400:09:42

# Weeping for the memory of a life gone by

0:09:420:09:47

# Dancing with tears in my eyes

0:09:490:09:54

# Living out a memory of a love that died

0:09:560:10:01

# It's five and I'm driving home again

0:10:050:10:09

# It's hard to believe that it's my last time

0:10:130:10:18

# The man on the wireless cries again

0:10:190:10:24

# It's over, it's over

0:10:240:10:29

# Dancing with tears in my eyes

0:10:290:10:35

# Weeping for the memory of a life gone by

0:10:360:10:42

# Dancing with tears in my eyes

0:10:420:10:47

# Living out a memory of a love that died

0:10:490:10:55

# It's late and I'm with my love alone

0:10:580:11:05

# We drink to forget the coming storm

0:11:050:11:12

# We love to the sound of our favourite song

0:11:120:11:18

# Over and over

0:11:180:11:22

# Dancing with tears in my eyes

0:11:220:11:27

# Living out a memory of a love that died

0:11:300:11:34

# It's time and we're in each other's arms

0:11:390:11:44

# It's time but I don't think we really care

0:11:440:11:50

# Dancing with tears in my eyes

0:12:220:12:28

# Weeping for the memory of a life gone by

0:12:300:12:33

# Dancing with tears in my eyes. #

0:12:360:12:42

No, really they weren't the wrong size.

0:12:420:12:44

Suits were supposed to look like that in the '80s.

0:12:440:12:46

Suits were never meant to look like this, however.

0:12:460:12:49

It's the Drifters, so called because they were of no fixed abode,

0:12:490:12:53

and got from gig to gig by riding in box cars.

0:12:530:12:55

# Say you'll meet me down on the beach tonight

0:12:550:12:58

# Where you and I could dance till break of day

0:12:580:13:06

# There's going to be an all night party, babe

0:13:060:13:10

# Say you'll be there down on the beach tonight

0:13:100:13:14

# Where you and I could dance your tears away

0:13:140:13:18

# Barefoot in the sand Hand in hand

0:13:180:13:21

# We're going to have an all night party

0:13:210:13:26

# Little girl you know he won't call up again

0:13:260:13:30

# He's out there on the town with your best friend

0:13:320:13:36

# Don't wait all night by the window

0:13:390:13:41

# You know it had to end

0:13:410:13:45

# You might as well come down and have a good time

0:13:450:13:50

# Come on down

0:13:500:13:52

# Say you'll meet me Down on the beach tonight

0:13:520:13:56

# Where you and I could dance till break of day

0:13:560:13:59

# Underneath the stars to soft guitars

0:14:010:14:05

# There's going to be an all night party, babe

0:14:050:14:08

# Say you'll be there down on the beach tonight

0:14:080:14:12

# Where you and I could dance your tears away

0:14:120:14:15

# Barefoot in the sand Hand in hand

0:14:160:14:19

# We're going to have all night party

0:14:190:14:23

# Little girl you know he won't call up again

0:14:310:14:37

# He's out there on the town with your best friend

0:14:370:14:43

# So don't cry all night on your pillow

0:14:430:14:47

# Cos he ain't worth the time

0:14:470:14:50

# You might as well come on down and join the party

0:14:500:14:56

# Come on down

0:14:560:14:58

# And say you'll meet me down on the beach tonight

0:14:580:15:01

# Where you and I could dance till break of day

0:15:010:15:06

# Underneath the stars to soft guitars

0:15:060:15:09

# There's going to be an all night party, babe

0:15:090:15:13

# Say you'll be there Down on the beach tonight

0:15:130:15:17

# Where you and I could dance your tears away

0:15:170:15:21

# Barefoot in the sand Hand in hand

0:15:210:15:24

# We're going to have an all night party

0:15:240:15:28

# Say you'll meet me down on the beach tonight. #

0:15:290:15:32

And if dodgy green suits are your thing,

0:15:320:15:34

well, you're in luck.

0:15:340:15:35

Here comes Angus Young, a grown man dressed as a schoolboy.

0:15:350:15:39

Not remotely creepy, eh(?)

0:15:390:15:41

And the reaction of the Top Of The Pops crowd,

0:15:410:15:43

more comfortable with the Drifters,

0:15:430:15:44

well... bemused.

0:15:440:15:46

# She had the face of an angel Smiling with sin

0:15:460:15:51

# The body of Venus with arms

0:15:510:15:54

# Dealing with danger Stroking my skin

0:15:550:15:59

# Like a thunder and lightning storm

0:15:590:16:02

# Seems like a touch

0:16:020:16:05

# A touch too much

0:16:050:16:09

# Seems like a touch

0:16:090:16:13

# A touch too much

0:16:130:16:16

# Too much for my body Too much for my brain

0:16:180:16:22

# This damn woman's going to drive me insane

0:16:220:16:25

# She had a touch

0:16:250:16:29

# A touch too much

0:16:290:16:33

# Touch me!

0:16:330:16:34

GUITAR PLAYS

0:16:340:16:36

# Oh!

0:16:490:16:51

# Seems like a touch # Touch too much

0:16:560:16:59

# You know it's much too much # Much too much

0:16:590:17:03

# I really want to feel you # Touch too much

0:17:030:17:07

# Girl, you know you're giving me # Much too much

0:17:070:17:11

# Seems like a touch

0:17:110:17:14

# Just a dirty little touch

0:17:140:17:18

# I really need your touch

0:17:190:17:22

# Cos you're much too much Too much, too much

0:17:220:17:26

# Seems like a touch. #

0:17:260:17:30

AC/DC. A Touch Too Much, with the original lead vocalist Bon Scott.

0:17:300:17:35

Meanwhile, undercover of darkness,

0:17:350:17:37

a crack platoon of marines are dropped into jungle territory,

0:17:370:17:40

where they run through their elaborate parade ground drill.

0:17:400:17:44

Repetitive, huh? But then, so are the lyrics.

0:17:440:17:46

# Saturday night I feel the air is getting hot

0:17:460:17:50

# Like you baby

0:17:510:17:54

# I'll make you mine You know I'll take you to the top

0:17:540:17:58

# I'll drive you crazy

0:17:580:18:00

# Saturday night, dance, I like the way you move

0:18:000:18:06

# Pretty baby

0:18:060:18:08

# It's party time And not one minute we can lose

0:18:080:18:13

# Be my baby

# Da ba da dan dee dee dee da Nee na na na

# Pretty baby

# Thank you, baby

0:18:500:18:53

# I'll make you mine You know I'll take you to the top

0:18:530:18:56

# I'll drive you crazy

0:18:580:19:00

# Saturday night, dance I like the way you move

0:19:000:19:05

# Pretty baby

# Saturday night, dance I like the way you move

0:19:300:19:34

# Pretty baby

# It's party time And not one minute we can lose

0:19:370:19:40

# Be my baby

0:19:420:19:44

# Ooh, hey

0:19:440:19:45

# Saturday

0:19:590:20:03

# Saturday night Saturday night

0:20:030:20:07

# Saturday, Saturday. #

0:20:070:20:09

# What night was it again(?)

0:20:090:20:10

# Saturday night. #

0:20:100:20:11

Oh, yes - Saturday. Forgot for a minute there(!)

0:20:110:20:14

Right, here's Elton John, and he's borrowed his mum's coat.

0:20:140:20:17

Just wait for a coy glance over the shoulder.

0:20:170:20:19

Ooh, reduces me to jelly every time.

0:20:190:20:22

# Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane

0:20:220:20:26

# I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain

0:20:290:20:34

# Oh, and I can see Daniel waving goodbye

0:20:360:20:41

# Oh, it looks like Daniel

0:20:420:20:45

# Must be the clouds in my eyes

0:20:480:20:53

# They say Spain is pretty though I've never been

0:20:580:21:03

# Daniel says it's the best place he's ever seen

0:21:050:21:11

# Oh, and he should know He's been there enough

0:21:110:21:17

# Oh, I miss Daniel

0:21:190:21:21

# Oh, I miss him so much

0:21:240:21:28

# Oh, oh, oh, Daniel my brother

0:21:280:21:33

# You are older than me

0:21:330:21:36

# Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal?

0:21:360:21:43

# Your eyes have died

0:21:430:21:46

# But you see more than I

0:21:460:21:50

# Daniel you're a star

0:21:500:21:54

# In the face of the sky

0:21:540:21:58

# Oh, oh, oh Daniel my brother

0:22:300:22:34

# You are older than me

0:22:340:22:38

# Do you still feel the pain

0:22:380:22:41

# Of the scars that won't heal?

0:22:410:22:45

# Your eyes have died

0:22:450:22:48

# But you see more than I

0:22:480:22:52

# Daniel you're a star

0:22:520:22:55

# In the face of the sky

0:22:550:23:00

# I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain

0:23:090:23:14

# Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye

0:23:140:23:21

# God it looks like Daniel

0:23:210:23:25

# Must be the clouds in my eyes

0:23:250:23:27

# Oh God it looks like Daniel Must be the clouds in my eyes. #

0:23:270:23:30

And, in fact, Elton later took a patch of that coat,

0:23:300:23:33

and had it grafted onto his head(!)

0:23:330:23:35

Right, all you campanologists -

0:23:350:23:36

Anita Ward is now going to make you the best offer

0:23:360:23:38

you're going to get tonight. Or possibly ever.

0:23:380:23:41

# I'm glad you're home

0:23:410:23:45

# Now did you really miss me?

0:23:450:23:48

# I guess you did by the look in your eyes

0:23:490:23:54

# Look in your eyes Look in your eyes

0:23:540:23:56

# Well lay back and relax while I put away the dishes

0:23:560:24:01

# Put away the dishes

0:24:030:24:04

# Then you and me can rock-a-bye

0:24:040:24:10

# You can ring my bell Ring my bell

0:24:100:24:15

# You can ring my bell Ring my bell

0:24:180:24:23

# You can ring my bell Ring my bell

0:24:260:24:39

# The night is young and full of possibilities

0:24:430:24:50

# Well come on and let yourself be free

0:24:500:24:55

# My love for you So long I've been saving

0:24:570:25:04

# Tonight was made for me and you

0:25:040:25:09

# You can ring my bell Ring my bell

0:25:110:25:16

# Ring my bell Ding-dong, ding-dong

# You can ring my bell

0:26:130:26:15

# Ding-dong, ding Ah-ah. #

0:26:150:26:18

Yes, hadn't really worked a dance out there, had she?

0:26:180:26:22

Still, in the words of the great Leslie Phillips, "Ding dong!"

0:26:220:26:25

Oasis now, before they fell out.

0:26:250:26:27

# Today is going to be the day

0:26:270:26:30

# That they're going to throw it back to you

0:26:300:26:33

# By now you should've somehow Realized what you got to do

0:26:330:26:37

# I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do

0:26:380:26:43

# About you now

0:26:430:26:46

# Back beat, the word is on the street

0:26:500:26:52

# That the fire in your heart is out

0:26:520:26:55

# I'm sure you've heard it all before But you never really had a doubt

0:26:550:26:59

# I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now

0:27:000:27:06

# And all the roads we have to walk are winding

0:27:110:27:15

# And all the lights that lead us there are blinding

0:27:160:27:22

# There are many things that I would like to say to you

0:27:220:27:27

# But I don't know how

0:27:270:27:30

# Because maybe

0:27:330:27:35

# You're going to be the one that saves me

0:27:370:27:43

# And after all

0:27:430:27:48

# You're my Wonderwall

0:27:480:27:53

# Today was going to be the day

0:28:000:28:02

# But they'll never throw it back to you

0:28:020:28:05

# By now you should've somehow Realized what you're not to do

0:28:050:28:11

# I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do

0:28:330:28:35

# Would like to say to you But I don't know how

0:28:350:28:39

0:28:430:28:47

# You're my Wonderwall. #

0:29:200:29:23

Oasis may have got their stage clothes down the market,

0:29:230:29:26

but it's still preferable to this.

0:29:260:29:28

There are more bad hairstyles and stonewashed denim

0:29:280:29:30

than even Iron Maiden might consider acceptable, here.

0:29:300:29:33

Boy Meets Girl.

0:29:330:29:34

OK, we've all seen your new keyboard. Move on!

0:29:530:29:56

Waiting For A Star To Fall.

0:32:030:32:05

And over at that disused fairground in New Brighton,

0:32:050:32:08

Echo And The Bunnymen gather beneath what remains of the big dipper.

0:32:080:32:11

# I'm on the chopping block Chopping off my stopping thought

0:32:110:32:16

# Self-doubt and selfism

0:32:180:32:21

Breaking the back of love

0:32:470:32:50

# Easier said than done you said But it's more difficult to say

0:32:500:32:57

# With eyes bigger than our bellies We want to but we can't look away

0:32:570:33:03

And another tortured love story here. Oh, it's Christmas,

0:35:010:35:04

and we face the perennial tree question - real or artificial?

0:35:040:35:08

Well, we went with artificial, to match Tammy's hair.

0:35:080:35:12

# Sometimes it's hard to be a woman

0:35:120:35:19

# Giving all your love to just one man

0:35:220:35:28

# You'll have bad times

0:35:310:35:35

# And he'll have good times

0:35:580:36:04

# And if you love him

0:36:070:36:12

# Oh, be proud of him

0:36:120:36:14

# Cos after all he's just a man

0:36:160:36:22

# Stand by your man

0:36:250:36:29

# Give him two arms to cling to

0:36:310:36:34

# And something warm to come to

0:36:350:36:39

# When nights are cold and lonely

0:36:390:36:44

What a voice, and here's a duo

0:37:360:37:38

in our Top Of The Pops 2 Introducing spot

0:37:380:37:41

who understand all about the heritage of country music.

0:37:410:37:43

Joy Williams and John Paul White, trading as the Civil Wars.

0:37:430:37:47

# You only know what I want you to

0:37:470:37:53

# I know everything you don't want me to

0:37:590:38:06

# Your mouth is poison

0:38:110:38:15

# Your mouth is wine

0:38:150:38:19

# You think your dreams are the same as mine

0:38:240:38:30

# Ooh I don't love you but I always will

0:38:350:38:48

# I don't love you but I always will

0:38:480:38:56

# I always will

0:38:560:39:00

# I wish you'd hold me when I turn my back

0:39:020:39:07

# The less I give the more I get back

0:39:150:39:22

# Ooh, your hands can heal

0:39:260:39:30

# Your hands can bruise

0:39:300:39:34

# I don't have a choice but I still choose you

0:39:390:39:46

# Oh I don't love you but I always will

The Civil Wars, whose singing is like two halves of a single voice.

0:41:000:41:04

Simple, and perfect.

0:41:040:41:05

Now here's Evelyn King, just turned 18, legally able to drink.

0:41:050:41:09

Hence the "Champagne" tag. Prior to this she was known as

0:41:090:41:12

Evelyn "Dandelion and Burdock" King.

0:41:120:41:14

# No sleep last night

Evelyn "Champagne" King.

0:44:100:44:11

Now here's four fine young men who've managed to get time of school

0:44:110:44:15

to be on Top Of The Pops, on the condition that they finish their geography projects.

0:44:150:44:19

Hence the globe on top of the bass amp. Swots.

0:44:190:44:22

# Look at the stars Look how they shine for you

0:44:340:44:40

# And everything you do

0:44:420:44:46

# Yeah, they were all yellow

0:44:480:44:50

# I came along

0:44:500:44:53

# I wrote a song for you

0:44:530:44:57

# And all the things you do

0:44:590:45:02

# And it was called Yellow

0:45:040:45:07

# So then I took my turn

0:45:090:45:12

# Oh what a thing to have done

0:45:150:45:19

# And it was all yellow

0:45:200:45:23

# And your skin Oh yeah, your skin and bones

0:45:290:45:34

# Turn into something beautiful

0:45:340:45:39

# And you know, you know I love you so

0:45:400:45:44

# You know I love you so

0:45:470:45:49

# I swam across

0:46:130:46:15

# I jumped across for you

0:46:150:46:19

# Oh what a thing to do

0:46:210:46:24

# Cos you were all yellow

0:46:270:46:30

# I drew a line

0:46:300:46:32

# I drew a line for you

0:46:320:46:35

# Oh what a thing to do

0:46:370:46:41

# And it was all yellow

0:46:440:46:46

# And your skin Oh yeah, your skin and bones

0:46:510:46:56

# Turn into something beautiful

0:46:560:47:02

# And you know

0:47:020:47:06

# For you I'd bleed myself dry

0:47:060:47:09

# For you I'd bleed myself dry

0:47:110:47:14

# It's true

0:47:350:47:37

# Look how they shine for you

0:47:390:47:42

# Look how they shine for you

0:47:430:47:49

Look how they shine for... #

0:47:490:47:53

From having a globe to conquering the globe.

0:47:530:47:56

Yes, quite pleased with that.

0:47:560:47:58

OK, the original odd couple now.

0:47:580:48:00

And this is actually very rare footage of Chris Lowe

0:48:000:48:04

playing with both hands at the same time!

0:48:040:48:07

I know! Ooh, quite the synth pop Liberace, aren't we, Chris(?)

0:48:070:48:11

# Maybe I didn't treat you

0:48:110:48:15

# Quite as good as I should have

0:48:150:48:18

# Maybe I didn't love you

0:48:190:48:23

# Quite as often as I could have

0:48:230:48:27

# Little things I should have said and done

0:48:270:48:30

# I never took the time

0:48:300:48:32

# You were always on my mind

0:48:350:48:37

# You were always on my mind

0:48:380:48:42

# Maybe I didn't hold you

0:48:420:48:44

# All those lonely, lonely times

0:48:460:48:48

# And I guess I never told you

0:48:500:48:53

# I'm so happy that you're mine

0:48:530:48:56

# If I made you feel second best

0:48:570:49:01

# I'm sorry I was blind

0:49:010:49:05

# You were always on my mind

0:49:050:49:12

# Tell me

0:49:120:49:16

# Give me

0:49:190:49:24

# One more chance to keep you satisfied

0:49:240:49:27

# Satisfied

0:49:270:49:30

# Little things I should have said and done

0:49:430:49:48

# I never took the time

0:49:480:49:51

# You were always on my mind

0:49:510:49:58

# Tell me

0:49:580:50:01

# Tell me that your sweet love hasn't died

0:50:010:50:06

# Give me

0:50:060:50:09

# One more chance to keep you satisfied

0:50:090:50:13

# You were always on my mind

0:50:130:50:28

# You were always on my mind

0:50:290:50:37

# Maybe I didn't treat you

0:50:440:50:48

# Quite as good as I should have

0:50:480:50:52

# Maybe I didn't love you

0:50:520:50:55

# Quite as often as I could have

0:50:550:50:59

# Maybe I didn't hold you

0:50:590:51:02

All those lonely, lonely times. #

0:51:020:51:07

And later that same day, in a nearby village hall,

0:51:070:51:10

pushy parents assemble to see if those speech and drama classes

0:51:100:51:12

they've been coughing up for have been worth the money.

0:51:120:51:15

I'll leave you to be the judge of that.

0:51:150:51:17

On second thoughts, I'll be the judge of that. No!

0:51:170:51:21

# It's horrible being in love when you're eight and a half

Curiouser and curiouser. The Shamen in wonderland now,

0:53:340:53:37

and for me, that caterpillar is trying much too hard.

0:53:370:53:40

Look mate, I know you've been on the hookah pipe, but you're at the back,

0:53:400:53:43

on a mushroom, and not really in the band. Get over it.

Aceed! OK, thrillseekers, our ride is nearly at an end.

0:56:090:56:13

But before we go, anniversary corner.

0:56:130:56:15

It was ten years ago,

0:56:150:56:17

when they were new to spray tans and tiaras,

0:56:170:56:19

that Girls Aloud won Popstars: The Rivals.
