The Week That Was – 13th May 1979

Record of the week: Roxy Music – Dance Away
Highest entry: Blondie – Sunday Girl – 10

24 Mar 2022 – When I saw this Roxy Music song here, the tune popped into my head and I thought, I hate this song! Something about it must have caught my interest. I was still into Blondie though I didn’t explore their releases after Parallel Lines. It got a bit too slick, though Union City Blue was ok.

13th May 1979
Feel sick
Found out what was at number 1

14th May 1979
Still feel sick

15th May 1979
Don’t feel as sick as yesterday
Rangers 0-0 Hibs
2p 123p

24 Mar 2002 – Such a sickly boy. Ipswich were my main team but in the Scottish League, I supported Rangers, because they also wore blue. Scottish games were never shown on TV so I could only follow them by watching out for the results on TV on Saturdays or perhaps reading results in my grandparent’s newspaper.

16th May 1979
I wish Bright Eyes would budge now
European Cup Winners Cup Final
Barcelona 4-3 Fortuna Dusseldorf

24 Mar 2022 – I really wanted Pop Muzik to get to number one. It almost seems inconceivable these days that a song could keep selling more copies week after week. I think Pop Muzik is more likely to be heard than Bright Eyes, in other contexts now, such as movies soundtracks or TV shows – if I may be allowed to reduce cultural attache like that. Bright Eyes was a real downer of a song.

17th May 1979
1. Art Garfunkel – Bright Eyes
2. M – Pop Muzik
3. Boney M – Holiday
4. Abba – Does Your Mother Know
5. Peaches and Herb – Reunited
2p

18th May 1979
More drama in Soap
2p

19th May 1979
Found out that Ipswich are in Europe

24 Mar 2022 – This current wonder of the internet tells me that Ipswich came 6th in the league which means they would play in the UEFA Cup the following season.
