    Stevie Wonder and Altered Images' versions of Happy Birthday - despite the fact that they are both totally different songs, they both have the same title, they both got to number two, and they were both hits in 1981!

    I suppose that as it will be my own birthday this week, the occasion coming up had reminded me of both those songs - I wonder if any radio station will play them on the day itself?
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Taffy - "I Love My Radio" - 1986

    Red Box - "Lean On Me" - 1985

    Peter Schilling - "The Different Story (World Of Lust And Crime)" - 1988

    Sabrina - "Boys (Summertime Love)" - 1987

    Desireless - "Voyage Voyage" - 1986

    Dexy's Midnight Runners - "Geno" - 1980

    Bucks Fizz - "New Beginning (Mamba Seyra)" - 1986


    Maybe I just listen to the wrong radio stations...or the right ones, at the wrong time

    Stevie Wonder's version of Happy Birthday was in the 1981 Pick of the Pops chart yesterday - but was not played, making my point above valid. Would have been ironic if it had been played...

    They get played quite a bit on Absolute 80s, and I've heard the Desireless one a couple of times in recent months.

    Occasionally you get to hear Psycho Killer or Souvenir if you are lucky.

    I've also heard "And She Was" by Talking Heads, and "Messages", "Loco-motion", "Talking Loud and Clear" by OMD fairly recently.
