1980s Disco

Two of the number one records from 1986 were later remade as charity records for comic relief. Boyzone did when the going gets tough and Gareth Gates covered the cover version of spirit in the sky, originally a number 1 hit for one hit wonder Norman Greenbaum in 1970.

Sir Cliff was back at the top spot with his 1959 classic number 1 living Doll, this time he teamed up with the young ones to make a comedy charity version. Unfortunately comedy records are only funny once, the second time you hear it you know the joke and after a few more listens it becomes boring, in fact very boring indeed. However you cant knock the King of UK rock'n'roll and the young ones were brilliant, so this tune escapes our pop flops of the 80s list, unlike Neil's 1984 solo effort, hole in my shoe which was meant to be boring. The chicken song is also on our naughty list although but as a parody of naff records it does almost manage to escape, but only almost.
