The Rules


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

- This week is week ending 7 February 1981 and can include songs released up to 31 January 1981 only.

- Your deadline is MIDNIGHT THURSDAY 3 February.

- You can now chart ANY SONG RELEASED IN 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.

Replicating a feat last achieved 18 years ago for the Beatles, John Lennon knocks himself off the top spot today with "Woman" selling a cool 133,000 copies into the bargain, add to that the fact that "Double Fantasy" also tops the album chart (one of two albums from him in the top 5) after a 7 week stint in the runner up spot, all combine to state that the Lennon phenomenon is far from over. "Woman" has now sold 283,000 copies in 3 weeks, the song that it replaces at No 1 "Imagine" slides to No 4 this week having sold 61,000 copies last week to bring its total to 540,000 since it was re-issued 7 weeks ago, naturally it has taken an early lead in the YTD charts.

It's also a very busy week for Midge Ure and Billy Currie. They part of two groups who share the top 10 this week, Ultravox's "Vienna" continues to improve 6-3 (83,000) whilst their other group Visage are the only new entrants to the top 10 as second single "Fade To Grey" jumps 12-8 (38,000). The group comprises the co-owners of the Blitz club in London (home to the New Romantic movement in some senses) Rusty Egan and Steve Strange amongst others. First single "Tar" failed to chart but they have much more luck this time around, the video incidentally is directed by Godley & Crème formerly of 10cc who seem to have a handy side line in video production.

Along with Lennon and Midge Ure, Billy Currie, Adam and the Ants also have two hits to discuss but both are fading fast, "Antmusic" tumbles 4-6 ( 56,000) whilst "Young Parisians" at least holds at No 9 but loses sales at 37,000.

Phil Collins can rejoice as he continues to climb a place 3-2 but "In The Air Tonight" has a modest sales increase to 91,000 and should be overtaken by Ultravox next week according to all trends. It looks to be all over for "Rapture" which sticks at No 5 but sales increase by just 8% to 56,000, whilst Yarbrough and peoples also repeat the same trick, they hold but slide in sales to 43,000, and the Look complete the top 10 moving 8-10 (37,000) and will surely make room for new blood next week.

The Winner Takes It All, holds at #1 for a second week in a row but Give Me A Break is gaining fast at #2.
#17 Ordinary People Theme & #18 Seasons might sound a little similar it's because they are both instrumental records that are both basically remakes of Canon In D Major by Johann Pachelbel.
