PJOPS Retrochart w/e 18/10/80

THE RETROCHART
We are taking a trip down memory lane

The Rules


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

- This week is week ending 18 October 1980 and can include songs released up to 11 October 1980 only.

- Your deadline is MIDNIGHT Saturday 8 October.

- 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 (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.

15 10 04 When You Ask About Love Matchbox
gezza76 said:
Finally a song spends 4 weeks at the top and tonight the Police can celebrate again as they do the double with "Don't Stand So Close To Me" and "Zenyatta Mondatta" topping their respective charts. That's the good news for the band but sales slide on both fronts as the single loses 26% week on week to record a sale of 126,000 copies, over the course of its first month it has sales now totalling 637,000 which it means it bounds 14-6 on the YTD survey and must be odds on to move into the top 3 next week. The expected challenge from "D.I.S.C.O" never quite materialised as it holds at No 2 on a sale of 118,000, off exactly 25% on last week but the track has already sold 445,000 in the UK indicating the strength of its popularity, and special mention must go to Madness who complete a static top 3 on a sale of 93,000 which raises its total to 414,000 and makes the top 3 a powerful and particularly popular one at present.

Four new entries to the top 10 to catch up with, the first of which has to be one of the most unusual entries into the top 10 this year "Et les oiseaux chantaient (And The Birds Were Singing)" has rocketed 51-11-4 over the last three weeks, a track which basically is a collection of bird song over a relaxing tune by the Swiss group Sweet People. Could this instrumental become a surprise No 1 next week? It attracted 64,000 buyers this week- who would have thought....

A much more familiar name to the big 10 Status Quo record their 12th Top 10 hit today as "What You're Proposing" moves 27-5 (62,000) it's also the lead single from their 13th album "Just Supposin" which hits the shops this week so could spoil the party with regards to how high this will climb.

Barbra's back! Streisand's most recent album is helmed by the Bee Gees and is certainly producing results as "Guilty" climbs 12-2 on the album charts and lead single "Woman In Love" jumps 22-9 (45,000) to become her fourth top 10 hit on the trot!

Rockabilly also makes its presence felt this week with Matchbox finally scoring a top 10 hit with "When You Ask About Love" which moves 15-10 (42,000). The group formed 9 years ago but didn't score their first hit until 11 months ago when "Rockabilly Rebel" peaked at No 18.

Clearing up the other positions both Stevie Wonder (4-6, 59,000) and Diana Ross (5-8, 47,000) drop whilst Odyssey hold at No 7 whilst increasing sales marginally to 58,000.

While it entered the top 100 August 9, 1980 it has been a long journey for Joy Division, finally in it's 11th week it breaks into the top 40 up from #41 to #32 with "Love Will Tear Us Apart"

 
The summer of 1980 is over and I'm at my last year of Primary School and trying to get my head around being the big "11" - meanwhile, here are the shakers and movers on my Retrochart - are they on yours?

Number 48 - new entry for Generation X and "Dancing with myself" - there are rumours that the band might be splitting up!:

 
Number 46 - new entry for Talking Heads and "Crosseyed and Painless"
The first single from their "Remain in Light" album. This track is currently going down a storm in cub land!
Have they been listening to MJ's "Off the wall" album and is David Byrne performing a "rap" towards the end?
