PJOPS Retrochart w/e 10/05/80



graph-icon-white.png
The Rules

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

- This week is week ending 10 May 1980. Your deadline is MIDNIGHT Saturday 30 April.

- 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.

- 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.

CHART FEATURE


This week's chart feature is a track which hit UK #1 in September. The debut by Gary Numan is currently at #4 in Canada and even heading towards the US top ten at #15. Its international success sees it rebounding back up the chart in similar fashion to the B-52s to join them in the top 20 this week at #15.

My Retrochart is coming up soon…but first some shakers and movers in the Cubster chart - will they feature on other People's Retrocharts?

New entry at Number 40: Mystic Merlin and "Just can't give you up":

 
He's got two singles inside the top 20 this week and another one bubbling outside the top 40 (due to Cubster Chart Rules "I feel for you" is not currently available as a single anywhere yet and therefore is disqualified from the top 40)

Here's Prince at number 17 with his current US single called "Why you wanna treat me so bad"
The sound comes back on at 3.39:
