Christmas Number 1 in 1986

The Christmas Number One in 1982 was another One hit wonder!

‘Save Your Love’ was a surprise Christmas number one in December 1982, after it’s release in November of the year.

It topped the charts for 4 weeks, which seems to be the norm for Christmas number ones. Are you noticing the trend for a 4 week chart position too?

Sung by duo Renee and Renato, who were formed after Renato was spotted in auditions for New Faces. New Faces was a TV show similar to Britain’s Got Talent and the X Factor back in the 70’s and 80’s. Television entertainers like Victoria Wood, Lenny Henry and Les Dennis  were discovered on this show.

Renee and Renato only performed together briefly, splitting up after two more songs were released.
