Big Sound Authority: This House (Is Where Your Love Stands). A 30 minute edition, as opposed to the standard 40. Top of the Pops is cut short by evening coverage of the Benson and Hedges Masters second quarter-final of boring old snooker. But that's not all! The unbreakable back-to-back pairing of Tomorrow's World and Top of the Pops has been broken asunder. Top of the Pops has come adrift and is currently going out as late as it ever did; 7.50pm in the evening! Paul Daniels' quiz Odd One Out is awkwardly inserted between Tomorrow's World and Top of the Pops. In this schedule Paul Daniels is the odd one out. And what's going to happen when the six week run of Odd One Out comes to an end? Stay tuned! Big Sound Authority are destined not to be as big in 85 as Peter Powell predicted. I'm surprised this song hasn't been used as the soundtrack to a building society advert.
Top 40 Breakers: A new feature for 1985. Three short clips from the videos of Bryan Adams -Run To You , Phil Collins –Sussudio , Pat Benatar –We Belong , and The Commodores –Nightshift .
 The Colour Field: Thinking Of You. A proto-Beautiful South with a lead singer who looks distractingly like Terry Hall. *fake edit* Actually it is Terry Hall according to Wikipedia, assuming their entry for The Colour Field is more accurate than the one for Close (To The Edit). That's embarrassing for me because all through The Colour Field's performance I did nothing but boggle at how much the lead singer looked like Terry Hall without realising it was him. This is what, his third band now? Terry, I think you may have commitment issues.
 Madonna: Like A Virgin. Going down. (John- Oo, missus)
 Russ Abbot: Atmosphere. Russ Abbot likes a party with an oxygen atmosphere.
 Strawberry Switchblade: Since Yesterday. Also going down.
5] Tears For Fears: Shout. Also, also going down.
 King: Love & Pride. No idea. I think I remember the hair more than the singer or the song.
 Prince: 1999. POP-LIE: If you brought Prince's album in 1985 on the new compact disc format, it cost £19.99.
 Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson: I Know Him So Well. From Chess, or possibly Cats, or a different musical about cats playing chess. (John- It’s from Chess. Cats is the one about cats).
 Foreigner: I Want To Know What Love Is. No audience dancing this week. The shorter running time means the credits roll over the Foreigner's video.
Performance of the week: Art Of Noise: Close (To The Edit)
