65 years of UK Christmas No1s - 1982

Renee and Renato - Save Your Love

"Save Your Love" is a song which, when performed by duo Renée and Renato, was a UK Number one hit in December 1982. It remained at the top of the chart for four weeks before being knocked off by Phil Collins' "You Can't Hurry Love". The song was written by Johnny Edward (creator and voice of fictional robot TV character Metal Mickey) and his wife Sue.

"Save Your Love" entered the UK charts on 13 November 1982 at number 38. However, it began to pick up sales during the Christmas period, and six weeks after its debut was at the top of the charts, resulting in it being played on Top of the Pops and many radio stations. Renée (whose real name was Hilary Lester), did not appear in the video for "Save Your Love"; instead, she was replaced by a model.

Save Your Love is a song that is an earworm to me! Once I hear it I can't stop singing it for days!!!

Again this single proved hard to find but I eventually found it at a record fair in 1998 for £3.
