PJOPS Retrochart w/e 04/10/80

THE PJOPS RETROCHART
We are taking a trip down memory lane

The Rules


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

- This week is week ending 4 October 1980 and can include songs released up to 27 September 1980 only.

- Your deadline is MIDNIGHT Saturday 24 September.

- 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 (within the prior 6 months) 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.

HIGHCLIMBER

A new record is set this week as for the first time this year (and consequently the decade) the No 1 record has sold over 200,000 copies in a week, 209,000 to be exact bringing its two week total to 340,000 copies. You have to expect the track to be a sizeable hit with that kind of selling rate and it progresses into the Top 30 for the YTD list.

Talking about the YTD list it's time to review where we are as we enter the final quarter of the year, the top 10 (with their current weekly position in brackets) is below:

1. GENO- Dexy’s Midnight Runners 683,000
2. TOGETHER WE ARE BEAUTIFUL- Fern Kinney 672,000
3. COWARD OF THE COUNTY- Kenny Rogers 667,000
4. FEELS LIKE I’M IN LOVE- Kelly Marie 661,000 (No 7)
5. WORKING MY WAY MY WAY BACK TO YOU- FORGIVE ME GIRL- Detroit Spinners 640,000
6. 9 TO 5- Sheena Easton 621,000 (No 31)
7. ASHES TO ASHES- David Bowie 612,000 (No 36)
8. THEME FROM MASH- MASH 592,000
9. GOING UNDERGROUND/ DREAMS OF CHILDREN- The Jam 583,000
10. CRYING- Don Mclean 580,000

Eagle eyed readers will spot that the current No 7 track by Kelly Marie sold 61,000 copies as it dives 4-7 but is also moves 8-4 on the YTD list but it should become the biggest seller of 1980 next week, meanwhile Bowie and Easton are fading too fast now to pose a serious threat to Dexy's Midnight Runners.

Stevie Wonder continues to expand sales wise rising 15% to 113,000 sales but the real winners are Ottawan who sail 8-3 and increase sales by a whopping 133% to 107,000 and in a normal week would be a shoe in for the No 1 spot next week but given the strength of "Don't Stand So Close To Me" it may be too much of a mountain to climb. The sales bonanza is also enjoyed by Madness at 4 (99,000) as the top 4 almost sold over 100k each for the third week this year.

A second single from her album "Diana" and a second straight top 10 hit from Ross, her 11th in total since her departure from the Supremes in 1969 and is once again helmed by Rogers/ Edwards to give it that 70s disco feel. "My Old Piano" rises 13-6 (62,000)

Shooting 35-10 this week is "Amigo" the first hit for Black Slate, a UK based reggae group who have backed Ken Boothe on some UK Tours and scored some European chart success over the past few years without troubling the UK charts but that's all changed now.

Three other fallers we need to care off, Randy Crawford drops 2-5 (73,000), Queen move back one spot 7-8 (44,000) and Elvis continues to free fall 6-9 (40,000)

It's chokablock in @Hairycub1969's top ten this week with 9 of the top 10 climbing or holding position. Something had to give and unfortunately for Kelly Marie it's her former number one! They are all stacking up behind The Police who mirror their UK chart success with a second week in pole position. New top ten hits this week for The Specials and Genesis!

Just having a listen to some of this week's releases I've never heard before.

I was not expecting that song from The Cars. Is this the same group that sang Drive only 4 years later? What a strange time the early 80s were. Fascinating seeing how groups like Tears For Fears, Level 42 and Eurythmics started out only a couple of years earlier.
 
Unfortunately, it looks like the links to Billboard Magazine archive are no longer working. Can someone check and let me know if it's just me?

16 10 04 Three Little Birds / Bob Marley & The Wailers


All change at the top in many ways this week. Firstly, Irene Cara gives up the top spot, not just to Queen, who claim their second #1 hit this year and the twentieth #1 of 1980 so far, but also Randy Crawford who claims the runner up spot. Can she mirror her success on the Dutch charts this week and grab a #1? Shalamar gain their second top 5 hit of the year after The Second Time Around hit #3 in February. Four new top ten hits this week, firstly from B-52s who return to the top 5 after only a fortnight completing a hatrick of top 5 hits in the last 5 months. Bob Marley is hoping to follow his last single all the way to the top with latest top ten hit Three Little Birds. Pointers Sisters and Stephanie Mills both find themselves in the top ten for the first time as they are currently riding high in the US charts, making the top 20 this week.

Drive is pretty much the exception in their entire discography. They were more of a herky-jerky (as David Byrne might say) new wave rock band, with a line in slightly retro kitsch (the image, the record sleeves...all very "American Graffiti").
