I WANTED IT ALL!
Queen's comeback hit single, I Want It All, their first in nearly 3 years and the highest new entry smashing in high at No3 and yet it was treated diabolically by being cut dead less than halfway through. The calibre of the group, the impressive debut chart position and the fact they'd been away from the charts for a while surely demanded far more respect for this track and it amazes me that TOTP producers showed it so little. Not seen again as it then fell, despite Bruno reckoning it a possible chart topper the next week. Yet everyone that week knew full well that next week would be the Hillsborough Gerry Marsden/Paul McCartney charity track on top so who was he kidding.
Seeing Stefan Dennis video play out with his jumping on the Kylie and Jason bandwagon single just makes me thankful that he didn't also soar to the heights of singles sales they did or by the end of '89 I'm convinced we'd have had Mrs Mangel (Vivean Gray) popping up with something on TOTP too.
Totally agree with your comment on the Queen song.
As for Stefan Dennis would have preferred his one hit to anything by Craig MacLachlan ( Henry )! 😆
