    Cannot find any coverage of this at all other than the tweet, but apparently Waldo Holmes, writer of Rock The Boat by The Hues Corporation died at the beginning of the month aged 92:
  2. I think once you take out the dead as I have, such as Michael Jackson, Bowie, Prince, George Michael etc etc, it shows the dominance that a lot of those artists had on the charts at that time. I've said before, if there's something you haven't heard, it might get onto your playlist. I think I listened to The Race on a loop throughout 1988.
  3. Think I got up to 1986. With a chance to update, here are the lists following the rules as above I have slung together (with some not inconsiderable conflict over some picks I couldn't make) for 1987 and 1988. 1987 #01 Pump Up The Volume - M/A/R/R/S #02 Call Me - Spagna #03 Letter From America - Proclaimers #04 With Or Without You - U2 #05 It Doesn't Have To Be This Way - Blow Monkeys #06 Incommunicado - Marillion #07 Mony Mony - Billy Idol #08 Funky Town - Pseudo Echo #09 Hey Matthew - Karel Fialka #10 Sheila Take A Bow - The Smiths #11 When Smokey Sings - ABC #12 Bridge To Your Heart - Wax #13 Wanted (Dead Or Alive) -Bon Jovi #14 This Wheel's On Fire - Siouxsie And The Banshees #15 Me And The Farmer - Housemartins #16 Hourglass - Squeeze #17 Dreamin' - Status Quo #18 Prime Mover - Zodiac Mindwarp And The Love Reaction #19 Valerie - Steve Winwood #20 I'm The Man - Anthrax #21 The Future's So Bright I Gotta Wear Shades - Timbuk3 #22 Songbird - Kenny G #23 Luka - Suzanne Vega #24 I'd Rather Go Blind - Ruby Turner #25 Beethoven (I Love To Listen To) - Eurythmics #26 Girls Girls Girls - Motley Crue #27 Don't Dream It's Over - Crowded House #28 Watching The Wildlife - Frankie Goes To Hollywood #29 (Isn't one so I picked another #28) The Game - Echo And The Bunnymen #30 There's A Ghost In My House - The Fall 1988 #01 The Only Way Is Up - Yazz And The Plastic Population #02 Sign Your Name - Terence Trent D'Arby #03 Teardrops - Womack And Womack #04 Fast Car - Tracy Chapman #05 Good Life - Inner City #06 Breakfast In Bed - UB40 with Chrissie Hynde #07 The Race - Yello #08 Real Gone Kid - Deacon Blue #09 1-2-3 - Gloria Estefan And The Miami Sound Machine #10 Martha's Harbour - All About Eve #11 Don't Go - Hothouse Flowers #12 Rush Hour - Jane Wiedlin #13 Tougher Than The Rest - Bruce Springsteen #14 I Don't Want Your Love - Duran Duran #15 Somewhere Down The Crazy River - Robbie Robertson #16 You Have Placed A Chill In My Heart - Eurythmics #17 Mandinka - Sinead O'Connor #18 Don't Believe The Hype - Public Enemy #19 All Fired Up - Pat Benatar #20 There's More To Love - Communards #21 Spy In The House Of Love - Was Not Was #22 Tomorrow People - Ziggy Marley And The Melody Makers #23 Piano In The Dark - Brenda Russell #24 Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns 'N' Roses #25 Kokomo - Beach Boys #26 I Want Her - Keith Sweat #27 Just Like Paradise - David Lee Roth #28 Life At A Top People's Health Farm - Style Council #29 Paradise - Sade #30 Sidewalking - Jesus And The Mary Chain

    As an aside, is Robert Fyfe the first time there's been an obit on the front page before the punter was added to the Who's Dead list?

    Interesting. If I look here, the chap referred to seems to have been born 10 January 1930: https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/1030/?name=Peter_Frazer&name_x=s&pcat=42&spouse=Mary_Lynch&qh=RowpNtl%2FFWObm3kHjdDU7A%3D%3D I don't know how Ancestry works though, ha! Offspring of the union perhaps we could search about the net for?

    By chance, I caught a 1976 episode of George And Mildred this morning. It's the one where Mildred finds out George isn't insured for his death - bitter sweet, as there's lines in it in which Mildred makes it quite clear that George is going to die first. Anyhow, of interest, Brian Murphy gave an interview a couple of weeks ago: https://www.comedy.co.uk/people/brian_murphy/interview/brian-murphy-on-george-mildred/ Sheila Fearn I think is the next oldest regular cast member still alive - 81 this year. What surprised me was that Peter Frazer-Jones is apparently still going - so many comedy show credits it's painful to pick out any one - he's about to turn 91, unless he has died off radar.

    Sad news if true, she seemed ubiquitous back in the day. Her turn in the King Of Clubs Poirot story exemplifies her characteristic style. RIP.

    Art For Death's Sake

    Mel Gooding, art historian, author and critic but probably more significantly (if you wanted a QO) occasional obituary writer for The Guardian, reportedly died on Monday:
