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 29 November 1980 and can include songs released up to 22 November 1980 only.

- Your deadline is MIDNIGHT Saturday 19 November.

- 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.

ABBA are back at No 1 today with their 9th chart topper putting them behind Elvis, The Beatles, and Cliff Richard in the all time list, not only that but they complete the double by also hanging onto the No 1 spot on the album charts as well. "Super Trouper" recorded a sale of 174,000 copies bringing its total to 326,000 copies so far!

The track is also the 22nd No 1 hit of 1980 and the year is now behind only 1965 in terms of chart toppers in the year, the latter had a total of 24 and with 4 weeks of the year left this year could still easily outdo 65 and create a new record. With the release of "Autoamerican" this week (it debuted at No 3) Blondie take a tumble with "The Tide Is High" which still sold 122,000 copies and should move over half a million next week.

After last weeks drought the top 10 gives us 4 new tracks to discuss starting at No 7 with the arrival of Kool & The Gang. "Celebration" rises 12-7 (54,000) to become their highest peaking single out doing "Ladies Night" which made No 9 last year. The track is the lead single from their 14th album "Celebrate!" Which was released a couple of months ago but which is yet to break the top 20 here.

Also back in the frame is John Lennon, he returns with a new album "Double Fantasy" which climbs 27-14 on the album chart, and lead track "(Just Like) Starting Over" which moves 13-8 (51,000) this week. It's his first album and new music in 5 years after he went into self imposed hiatus to concentrate on family life but it seems like we've missed him!

With a fourth album due in January the Boomtown Rats released their 9th single "Banana Republic" which this week ascends 23-9 (49,000) to record a fifth top 10 hit, very single they have released has made the top 15, quite an achievement! The song is about their homeland Eire which has banned the group from performing in the country though there are reports that story is little more than a rouse dreamed up to cause promotion.

Meanwhile it's single number three and top ten hit number three for UB40 who continue to ride the coat-tails of success. Another double A-Side "The Earth Dies Screaming/ Dream A Lie" isn't on their debut album "Signing Off" though they were recorded at the same time as the album, but being left off the LP might be key to the success of this single as it rises 11-10 (45,000).

Elsewhere Dennis Waterman and Stephanie Mills both climb, 4-3 (72,000) and 6-4 (69,000) respectively whilst Bowie holds at No 5 (56,000) and Barbra Streisand falls 3-6 (56,000) but makes its predicted move to No 3 on the YTD list.

No huge surprises this week as most tracks consolidate their positions. Bruce actually draws away from the pack for a second week at #1 and it's unlikely to be his last. ABBA draw further ahead of Blondie but both continue to climb. Billy Joel gets an expected fifth top 5 hit. Outside the top ten the next five positions are all in with a chance as future top ten hits!
