Great Nostalgic Music Programme
11 July 2001 | by (Liverpool, ENGLAND) – See all my reviews



I'm not a big fan of the TOP OF THE POPS today as I can't stand STEPS, GERI HALLIWELL, BACKSTREET BOYS or RICKY MARTIN! It's good that a music programme that looks back at the top, and rare performances of TOTP over the last 40 years is aired. It focuses on all the trends and music styles from all the different years of TOTP and is very entertaining. The specials are good too. The specials I have seen include Roxy Music, Bon Jovi etc. THE BEST SPECIAL WAS PAUL McCARTNEY. SOOOOO COOL!
