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

    [​IMG] 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.

    - This week is week ending 23 May 1981 and can include songs released up to 16 May 1981 only.

    - Your deadline is MIDNIGHT THURSDAY 18 May.

    - You can now chart ANY SONG RELEASED IN 1980.

    Marvin the paranoid android has a hit from the recent BBC adaptation of "The Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy":


    Adam and the Ants make it three weeks at number one with "Stand and deliver":


    Cubfile:

    Adam and the Ants get a third week at number one with “Stand and deliver” as REO Speedwagon get stuck at number two and Ennio Morricone is not budging from number three. However, Kim Wilde, Quincy Jones, Level 42, Department S and Kim Carnes all climb inside the top ten. Heading downwards are Shakin Stevens and The Beat
    The longest runner on the chart with 14 weeks is Adam and the Ants’ “Kings of the wild frontier” which is at number 50

    Next week could see new entries from:
    George Harrison, Hazel O’Connor, Kate Robbins, Odyssey, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Phil Collins and Randy Crawford - stay tuned!

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    EG's Chartdust: No change at the top, and despite climbing from #10-2 The Human League are still a distant second to Stand & Deliver. Teardrop Explodes and Kim Wilde successfully follow-up major breakthrough hits, while Toyah (28-17) and Duran Duran (31-18) will be hoping for the same in future weeks. Talking Heads' own attempt to emulate the #2 peak of their last single finally appears with House In Motion new at #23. Hot on the heels of Ennio Morricone's smash instrumental, Vangelis is the highest entry with the theme from the new British movie Chariots Of Fire.

    Retrochart regulars Squeeze and UB40 also return to the fray.
