Top of the Pops

In a celebration of the music and memories of 1989, BBC FOUR’s “Top of the Pops” takes viewers on a nostalgic journey back in time with its special episode titled “Big Hits 1989.” Set to air on Friday 26 January 2024 at 7.00pm, this compilation promises to be a treat for fans of pop music and those looking to relive the sounds that defined the end of an era.

As the ’80s draw to a close, “Top of the Pops” opens its vaults once more, unearthing performances by some of the biggest names in popular music from that seminal year. The episode showcases established megastars such as Tina Turner and Phil Collins alongside chart-toppers like Soul II Soul, Paula Abdul, Lisa Stansfield, and The Beautiful South.

Fans will also be delighted by appearances from beloved Madchester favorites Stone Roses and Happy Mondays—a testament to their lasting impact on British music history. And who could forget about Stock Aitken and Waterman? The powerhouse trio brings us hits from Kylie Minogue (fresh off her Neighbours fame), Jason Donovan (another soap opera star turned singer), Sonia Evans (known simply as Sonia), Sydney Youngblood, Mike and The Mechanics, Rebel MC and Double Trouble.

To add intrigue to this impressive lineup are unexpected duets featuring unlikely musical bedfellows. Marc Almond teams up with Gene Pitney while Linda Ronstadt joins forces with Aaron Neville—combining contrasting styles into something truly unique.
