EG'S WEEKLY TOP 40 RETROCHART: FEB 7TH 1981

EG's Chartdust:

The top 2 stay the same, but a two-pronged attack from Ultravox and Visage could see a record with Midge Ure's input at No.1 next week. XTC leapfrog a whole bunch of other climbers to land at #6. The Beat finally reach the top 10, one place above I Am The Beat. Chart-toppers from 1980, Bowie and Cliff Richard, appear to have run out of steam with their latest hits. It's location, location, location for this week's newcomers - a House, a Cafe, a Town, a Theatre and....reaching a little....Germany.
 
Welcome to the PJOPS Retrochart for Week Ending 7 February 1981!

Comiserations to Diana Ross who is stuck just outside the top ten for a second week despite posting the same points. However, Rainbow are the higher climber so enter the top ten this week, already beating the peak of previous single All Night Long which made #15 last year.

It seems apt for Blondie to be runner up on the retrochart this week after missing out on the top spot in all 4 retrocharts it currently features on!

This is their fifth top 2 hit since the retrochart began. No other act has so far matched such a feat. This week they also become the only act to have 3 singles in the all time top 40, with their three number ones Call Me, Atomic and The Tide Is High.
