The Boomtown Rats - Rat Trap b/w So Strange (1978) - single

It is a rock ballad, telling the tale of a boy called Billy who feels the depressing town he lives in is a "Rat Trap". Geldof mimed the saxophone part on a candelabra, a jest he explained in his autobiography Is That It?: "The Musicians' Union had forbidden me to play saxophone on the video, as obviously I hadn't done so on the record. But I saw a candelabra on the piano at the shoot and I put a mouthpiece in the central candle holder and played it. The impact of video came home when during the next few British gigs kids pulled out candelabras from nowhere and began playing them during the sax solo in 'Rat Trap'". In the music video, various members of the band are seen reading copies of the novel Rat Trap by the Welsh author Craig Thomas, although the book has no connection to the song. The lyric about "pus and grime..." was changed to "blood and tears pour down the drains and the sewers", although Geldof mumbled the line anyway.

Jody - Don´t Stay Late b/w If Only We Could Stay Together (Goodbye) (1983) - single

Jody Pijper (Ter Aar, 17 mei 1952) is een Nederlands achtergrond- en solozangeres. Ze heeft ook opgetreden onder de namen Jody en Jody Miles.
Pijper begon haar muzikale carrière in 1972 in Den Haag. Met Robbie van Leeuwen (van Shocking Blue) nam ze in 1973 haar eerste single op. In 1974 speelde ze voor korte tijd bij Jupiter. In de tweede helft van de jaren zeventig was Pijper lid van de studiogroep Rainbow Train, onder leiding van Hans Vermeulen. In dat verband nam ze onder meer muziek op voor Lucifer, Anita Meyer (die ook deel uitmaakte van Rainbow Train) en Peter Hollestelle.
In 1978 vormde Pijper met allerlei studiomuzikanten (onder wie haar zus Lilly Pijper en Peter Hollestelle) The Hachee Band, waaruit Cashmere ontstond. Na verloop van tijd verlieten leden deze band en bleven Jody Pijper en Hollestelle als duo over. In 1979 hadden ze succes met een cover van het door Albert Hammond en Leo Sayer geschreven liedje "Love's what I want". Aan het eind van de jaren zeventig verzorgde Pijper achtergrondzang voor de albums 3 van Jan Akkerman en Slithering van The Blue Band.
Begin jaren tachtig nam Pijper deel aan het door Jaap Eggermont begonnen Stars on 45-project. Ze maakten discoversies van bekende hits. Hun single "Stars on 45", een medley met onder meer muziek van The Beatles en Shocking Blue, werd een nummer één-hit in Nederland en de Verenigde Staten. In 1983 werd haar eerste soloalbum (Jody Miles) uitgebracht met de ballad single “Don´t Stay Late”, wat niet verder kwam dan de Tipparade.
