Re: This week in 1984...

I can't believe 'The Lucky One' only scraped into the Top 50. I think it's up there with her best and always assumed it probably made Top 30 and always thought a bigger hit since it was on 'H'its Hot 84/85'. 'Glam To Wham' is my favourite Takeaways song. Another poor chart performance. I wish The Takeaways performed on Countdown and they should have when they hosted the show in October '84 - as Christine was one of the three hosts

I don't think I'd heard 'The Lucky One' since 1985 until a month or 2 ago when I listened to the album (my first album purchase as a 6 year-old ) on Spotify. I agree; it should have done much better than it did.
