THE 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 6 December 1980 and can include songs released up to 29 November 1980 only.

- Your deadline is MIDNIGHT Sunday 27 November.

- 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.

A quiet week at the top of the charts this week with no movement for either ABBA at No 1 or Blondie at No 2 though both slide sales wise and fans switch to the albums for Christmas presents. "Super Trouper" loses 22% of its sales and registers 136,000 sales whilst Blondie lose 29% as they drift to 86,000, both acts have current top 5 albums with ABBA again completing the double!

Becoming the first act to score 4 top 10 hits in 1980 Madness soar 12-4 (70,000) with "Embarrassment" which is the follow up to "Baggy Trousers" which still lingers in the chart at No 58 this week as sales approach 600,000. Thematically it's rather darker than your normal Madness single covering themes of racism, illegitimacy and teenage pregnancy, that hasn't stopped it becoming the bands fifth straight top 10 hit.

Named after the German prison where many executions took place (the "Ballet" refers to the twitching the bodies exhibited as they were hanged) Spandau Ballet see their first single "To Cut A Long Story Short" jumps 11-5 (56,000) . The band are part of the emerging "New Romantic" crowd which have grabbed many headlines over the last 6 months and finally provide the movement, if it is such a thing!

This week also sees the return of Eddy Grant who of course famously topped the charts back in 1968 as a member of the Equals with a song he wrote himself "Baby Come Back". He split with them and struck it big last year with "Living On The Front Line" which narrowly missed the top 10, a curse he breaks this week with "Do You Feel My Love" which climbs 15-9 (45,000).

Boomtown Rats are finally back in the top 3 for the first time since "I Don't Like Mondays" in June 1979 as they jump 9-3 (71,000) but they're the only climbers. Dennis Waterman drops 3-6 (47,000), Stephanie Mills dips 4-7 (47,000), Kool & The Gang descend 7-8 (46,000) and John Lennon can't advance any further and moves 8-10 (43,000)

15 10 06 Ace Of Spades / Motorhead 23,500


It's taken 49 weeks and the year is almost up but for the very first time on my retrochart the entire top ten are gaining! In fact this week sees a record 11 songs atop the chart all gaining week on week as we have a clear out of half of the top ten.

Bruce Springsteen extends his run to a third week with ABBA still in contention and Blondie lagging behind but comfortable at #3.

It's a second top ten hit in a row for Viola Wills and the third in a row for Roxy Music who are one place off their best peak with their first hit of the year Over You.

First time in the top ten for Christopher Cross, Loleatta Holloway and Motorhead.

W/e 6th December 1980:

Before the HMV Chart is revealed - some makers and shakers this week - are they in your Retrochart?:

Number 43 - new entry for Kate Bush and "December will be magic again" - her fourth HMV hit of the year following "Breathing" "Babooshka" and "Army Dreamers":

 
Number 39 - new entry for Queen and "Flash" from the new film version of "Flash Gordon" - some cubsters are excited as the film features Brian Blessed in a skimpy outfit bearing a lot of flesh!:
