PJOPS Retrochart w/e 28/06/80

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 28 June 1980. Your deadline is MIDNIGHT Saturday 18 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.

The Brits are taking over the International charts this week - number one:

USA - Paul McCartney
Canada - Gary Numan
Australia - The Vapors

Mreanwhile the UK has American Don Mclean at number one with "Crying"...
 
Before I post my Retrochart, here's some makers and shakers on my chart - are they on yours?

Number 36 - New entry for Yellow Magic Orchestra and "Computer Game (Theme from the Invaders)":

 
Number 34 - new entry for Prince and "Still waiting"
This is his third USA single from his "Prince" album and the fourth to be released internationally following in the footsteps of:

I wanna be your lover
Sexy dancer
Why you wanna treat me so bad.

Rumour has it that he has finished work already on his third album and a brand new single will be released in September 1980:
