Pop Maggie

In this week when just about everything revolves around the Iron Lady, I thought it worth taking a look at what was top of the charts the day she won the 1979 election, and what was there when she left office.

Unfortunately Art Garfunkel's Bright Eyes was Number 1 on 4th May 1979...

...but the Number 2 record was one I had actually forgotten, Racey - Some Girls:

And when she lost that crucial vote in November 1990 that led to her downfall as head of the Conservative Party, and inevitably her resignation as Prime Minister? A most appropriate song.

The Beautiful South - A Little Time...

...and bubbling under? The Happy Mondays - Kinky Afro:

RIP Margaret Thatcher
