Top Of The Pops Thursday: Godley & Creme – Under Your Thumb


This wonderfully atmospheric, haunting song still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up even now, 28 years after it was released.

Actually, I really need to stop working out those kind of figures, cos it’s making me depressed how long ago it all was.

Anyway, it’s Under Your Thumb by former 10cc members Godley & Creme, a spooky little ditty about one man’s close encounter with the ghost of a woman who killed herself as a result of domestic abuse. Enjoy..?

Now, it’s a bit of a cheat to include this on Top Of The Pops Thursday, which is supposed to celebrate great live performances, when this performance on the BBC’s Top Of The Pops is clearly mimed – however, I’ve been unable to find a proper live version or the music video, so it was this or nothing.
