Surprising, now that you mention it (though were the NME as besotted as the rest of the country seemed to be? not sure), Same time, it wasn’t really a banner year for them with singles, though I could certainly live with “That’s Entertainment” being in there.
Not a big enough fan to know, but it wouldn’t endear me to him if he did: I sort of consider ’81 the penultimate year for pop music, at least during my lifetime (which is not to say there haven’t been other good years since).
