PJOPS Retrochart w/e 12/04/80



graph-icon-white.png
The Rules

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

- This week is week ending 12 April 1980. Your deadline is MIDNIGHT Saturday 2 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.

Sorry phoenix123, but I do not think I will participate for a while. I am totally not acquainted with that time and I have to dig deep. I am also currently working on the ultimate artist countdown (which is also time-consuming) and popjustice pop quiz. And I also have a Texas rate coming up which I am preparing. I will be sneaking in definitely!

Uh-oh, maybe it's time to retire Gang Of Four's "Damaged Goods" / "I Found That Essence Rare" 7", as I just discovered its release details are rather sketchy after all. I had counted on Wikipedia, which has it as their second '79 single from the September LP -- but now it seems no regular discographies list it at all, and the only other mentions of such a single are from the Billboard US dance charts from the summer of 1980... I guess this means we are obligated to re-do all the charts so far? Sorry! I acted in good faith!

Elsewhere in the news, the band that saved punk by turning it into Hardcore - Discharge - storms the top ten with their debut EP "Realities of War". Peel has been playing it since March 26, so it should be a safe bet it's released by now. (But can you imagine what could happen in June, when their second EP "Fight Back" is unleashed - and it's even better...)

The other new release is discovered once again via Phoenix' French links: Jacno's debut single has been out since late '79 but only now shows up in the French radio charts.

My Retrochart will be coming soon - first some makers and shakers for w/e 12th April 1980:

Number 38: The Police - Bring on the night. This track from their current album "Reggatta De Blanc" has been released as a single in the USA and most of Europe - but not in the UK (yet) - The Police have two singles in the Top 40 this week as "So lonely" goes down 6 places to number 25:
