when you where 8-bit computing? Doesn't have to be ZX Spectrum you were using.

I remember these music videos usually playing on Sky Channel's Sky Trax.

Good god man!

Mostly stuff we taped off the radio chart show. World in Motion, International Rescue, Smooth Criminal...and other stuff. Brother used to borrow the "Monster Hits" compilations from mates at school.

Personally I have the themes from Blockbusters and Knightmare stuck in my head from the late 80s...which isnt a bad thing!

Ah, the top 40 and the joy of having the cassette on rec and pause and timing it perfectly to start recording each song just as the dj stopped talking.

"Welcome to the UK Chart show, compiling non-stop hits BACK-to-BACK!"

Or something cheesy like that...
