PJOPS Retrochart w/e 20/09/80

THE PJOPS 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 20 September 1980 and can include songs released up to 13 September 1980 only.

- Your deadline is MIDNIGHT Saturday 10 September.

- 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.

The HMV Retrochart will be posted later tonight.
Meanwhile, the makers and shakers this week - are they in your Retrochart?

Number 50 - new entry for Hall and Oates and their cover of "You've lost that lovin' feeling"

 
Number 44 - new entry for Prince and his brand new single "Uptown" - not afraid to shy away from singing about controversial topics, this latest smash covers both sexuality "Are you gay?" and race "Black, White, Puerto Rican everybody's just a freakin'

There's a rumour going around that on the cover of his new album, he'll be wearing black skimpy bikini bottoms and not a lot else!

 
Number 30 - new entry for The Specials and "Stereotype" - controversy abounds again as this single is apparently deemed unsuitable for daytime and Top of the pops airtime!

 
Billy Joel is still climbing up the top ten with his recent US number one hit "It's still Rock 'n' Roll to me" - but has he topped the HMV chart?:

Guilty pleasures?!? – we have a new number one in the shape of Kelly Marie and “Feels like I’m in love” which is also sitting pretty on top of the UK Mainstream Chart. It has taken eight weeks to get to the summit on the HMV Retrochart:

50-40-28-21-13-8-3-1

The number two record this week: Billy Joel’s “It’s still Rock ‘n’ Roll to me” has taken seven weeks to get there:

38-23-13-9-6-4-2

Other climbers inside the top ten this week are Peter Garbiel, Nick Straker Band, The Beat, Sheena Easton, Queen and Split Enz. The other two in the top ten are former number ones by Gary Numan and David Bowie heading in the wrong direction.
The highest new entry at number 30 are The Specials and “Stereotype” which due to it’s lyrical content is not playable on daytime radio/TOTPs….go figure!
Joy Division’s “Love will tear us apart” is the longest runner with 12 weeks in total on the HMV Retrochart.
Next week could see new entries from The Police, Black Slate, Thin Lizzy, The Teardrop Explodes, Simple Minds and Air Supply - stay tuned!
