PJOPS Retrochart w/e 14/06/80

THE PJOPS RETROCHART
We are taking a trip down memory lane



graph-icon-white.png
The Rules

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

- This week is week ending 14 June 1980. Your deadline is MIDNIGHT Saturday 4 June.

- 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.

Before I post my Retrochart for w/e 14th June 1980 - here's some makers and shakers:

Number 39 - new entry for BA Robertson and "To be or not to be":

 
Number 14 - this week's highest new entry comes from The Police and their fourth track released as a single from their second album "Reggatta De Blanc" - following in the footsteps of "Message in a bottle", "Walking on the moon" and "Bring on the night" - "The bed's too big without you" is now available as a single in the UK. But it comes as a "Six pack" with all their last five UK single releases!:

The Musicians’ union strike means there’s no Top of the Pops at the moment on BBC1 TV.
Meanwhile Synth Pop rules the airwaves as congratulations to OMD who shoot up from number seven last week to the top spot with “Messages” this week. They knock Gary Numan’s “We are glass” to number three. The Specials jump up two places to number two with “Rat Race”
Snyth Pop and Ska 2 Tone style sums up 1980 so far – therefore is Disco losing it’s flavor as Lipps Inc’s “Funky Town” surprisingly falls two places to number four . The Korgis are right on their tail this week as they’re the highest climber up from 20 to number 5. Also climbing in the top ten are Crown Heights Affair, Don Mclean and Jona Lewie. Meanwhile, Roxy Music fall to number six and Hot Chocolate head down to number 8.

The highest new entry is at number 14 – The Police are back with “The bed’s too big without you” their fourth international release from “Reggatta Da Blanc” – rumour has it that their next album has already been written and recorded and will be released in the autumn!
