Oh yes! :) :)

This was (for me) the pinnacle of TOTP. I don't think you could ever top a year where the penultimate edition of the show had that Band Aid performance (some might say it jumped the shark at that point). There was hardly a crap lineup at all in 1984 - give or take the odd tune. Video overkil was just creeping in though, with some editions having up to 4 videos in total.
