Well, I never.

I said yesterday that I'd been watching the first half of a TOTP2 which was counting down everyone's favourite Top Of The Pops performances ever - or rather, the top 20 of them. Numbers 10-1 were counted down last night and I watched them this morning.
Can't remember 10, 9 and 8 offhand, but from there -

3 - 'Killer Queen', Queen. Sigh.
2 - 'Like A Virgin', Madonna. Yay! But what a dreadful wig...
