Thatcher-off: Number nine

So, an early lead for music after Thatcher, thanks to Kylie power. Funny that an economic migrant has given Thatch the lead, eh?

Let us climb a place higher:

Number 9, April 1979 - M - Pop Muzik

"You're living in a disco" claimed Robin Scott, "forget about the rat race". You might as well, as you're not going to get any sleep with all that pumping music and flashing lights. Maybe you should have taken the rooms above the butcher's instead.

A fine love letter to pop music. You can't complain about that.

Number 9, November 1990 - Vanilla Ice - Ice, Ice Baby

The Thatcher years were a difficult time for race relations, weren't they?

After two rounds, then: Pre-Thatcher 1, Post-Thatcher 1.

Another round to follow in about an hour...
