    Unlikely, given that their 'moment' arrived four years later.

    Speaking of unlikely rappers tonight's episode included something I don't remember hearing before which I might have mistaken for Wham Rap if I hadn't been paying attention. I forget the song title already but Paul Weller, what on earth were you thinking of!

    I was referring to the fact said video was filmed on a narrowboat!

    Indeed - I was referring to the fact that Gangster O seemed to be treating your post as though it were a guess to his favoured video.

    Unusually prescient of Bates to identify I Want To Know What Love Is as a future number one.

    Fairly sure Phil Oakley was sailing his narrow boat up the River Lea, through Hackney Wick, Hackney Marshes and up towards the Lea Valley Ice Centre, thereby predating the current East London fashion for houseboat living on the River Lea by a good 3 decades. Brilliant song and video.

    Quite amusing to see that Spandau Ballet have declined to the extent that they've been relegated to the lesser Christmas show.

    Also unsure why they're showing My Oh My, given that it was over a year old by this stage.

    Despite the Black Country-tastic twin assault of Sir Lenworth and Slade, I think I'll be turning to Would I Lie To You in five minutes.

    Oh hang on, here's Bronski Beat.

    Kevin Rowland was looking to buy a flat right by that very stretch of water last year, I wonder if he completed.

    Same thing happened back in 1973, when Little Jimmy Osmond's Xmas No. 1 from 12 months earlier was included (see Chart Music podcast). There seemed to be a rule that if something clung on into January then it became a hit belonging to both years. In today's streaming era, where tracks hang around for 2-3 years, the concept of 'annual chart' loses its meaning.

    Long Haired Lover actually sold more copies in 1973 than the previous, but featured in the year-end listings for both years.

    But pretty much every year is going to include a song that has cusped the years at number one, or thereabouts. (Queen obviously featured in both 1975 and 1976 with Bohemian Rhapsody, etc.) Not sure of their sources, but - if one ignores the annoying apostrophes - this website seems a pretty useful resource:
