                    Monday is Memory Chart Day and today we take you                                                                 back to this week in 1986

Top 40 Hits of Late January 1986

^2Dire StraitsWalk Of Life
^3Nana MouskouriOnly Love
^4Mr MisterBroken Wings
fall5Pet Shop BoysWest End Girls
^6Feargal SharkeyYou Little Thief
fall7Cherelle With Alexander O'NealSaturday Love
^9Fine Young CannibalsSuspicious Minds
fall10Bronski BeatHit That Perfect Beat
 The Dj's choice this week is Dire Straights walk of life

This song has to be the most played jive a dj has in the box and 
 this leads me to what is a very Irish thing "the jive" 

With the advent of Rock n Roll came the Jive and here in Ireland it peaked in popularity  with the rise of the show bands but still it lives on at Country shows ,weddings ,pub gigs and of course our nostalgia nights .
You can be sure as you read this that somewhere at a gig right now there's a couple enjoying a jive to Dire Straights  Walk of life

Bye for now hope you like our iphone friendly format
