1981

by Simon

It was my wife’s birthday last week. I looked up what was Number 1 on the day she was born and found it was ‘Stand And Deliver’ by possibly the greatest pop group of all time. Adam & The Ants. A lot of people now who talk about Adam Ant will talk about how good the punk stuff was. But give me the pop music: Stand & Deliver, Kings Of The Wild Frontier, Prince Charming. Fantastic music!!! Just listen to how exciting Wild Frontier is, how powerful and how weird they sound for a chart topping group!!

PS: I bought Stand And Deliver that week when it was Number 1 back in…1981. I was 12.
