  1. THE RETROCHART
    We are taking a trip down memory lane

    The Retrochart Vault

    The Rules


    - This is a retrochart which commenced week ending 5 January 1980.

    - Post in the thread or start a new conversation with me with your top 10/20/100 songs of each week.

    - Each week I will post a list of new entries and releases that are eligible to chart and links to international charts (click on the flag / icon for the hyperlink).

    - The list will not be exhaustive and you are free to add any more obscure songs on your personal list released up to that date or songs contemporaneously charting on international charts. If you do I would appreciate any links to evidence the release date or chart history to update the archive.

    - You are free to use your own personal charts from the time (if you have them) or create an updated list for this chart.

    - Please rank your songs from your favourite downwards. (eg #1 down to #100)

    - Your #1 gets 100 points, #2 gets 99 points etc

    - The weekly PJOPS Retrochart is compiled from accumulated points each week.

    - It would be fantastic if you could regularly contribute lists but understandably there may be weeks you can not. If someone fails to contribute towards a weekly chart their previous week’s choices will be frozen and contribute to the chart but the points will be halved. This is to prevent wild fluctuations in chart positions depending on contributions.

  14. It looked like this had peaked at #12 after holding for two weeks but she wouldn't give up! Physical leaps 6 spots to #6 with her 6th top 10 hit "Physical"

  15. Hooked On Classics holds off Our Lips Are Sealed for the #1 spot. R.P.O. has held the top spot for 6 weeks and looks like it might not be going away anytime soon.

    EG's Chartdust: So 1982 begins in earnest this week, with the first of the year's new entries as opposed to re-entries, re-issues or re-activated singles. The Stranglers' very un-Stranglersesque Golden Brown leads the way at #19. Most of last week's Top 10 experience huge drops, allowing for Altered Images, The Human League, Foreigner and Brown Sauce to take their place, while Phil Lynott, Kool & The Gang and Meat Loaf are still waiting to pounce.

    At the summit, it's a second week at #1 for Bucks Fizz, with Dollar once again the bridesmaid. Rod Stewart scores his biggest hit of the 80s thus far, as Young Turks climbs to #3.

  18. Before I reveal this week's HMV Retrochart in full: the makers and shakers - are they in your Retrochart yet?
    There are 8 new entries this week and the clear out of 1981 rebounds has begun.

    At Number 50 we have a new entry from a band who might ending up being big on @Eric Generic 's Retrochart in the future: The Thompson Twins - In the name of love:
