The US are currently in the middle of Duran Duran fever as "Hungry Like A Wolf" sits at No 3 this week, back in their homeland and the band see their first post "Rio" single debut straight at the No 1 spot! It's the first time since The Jam turned the trick back in December that a song debuts at the top, It's also only the sixth time in the decade that it has happened and the group are only the fourth act in the 80s to achieve such an impressive accolade following the Jam, The Police, and Adam & The Ants, the single "Is There Something I Should Know" has been hyped by the band as a stand alone single and one which will never appear on a DD album, good job really, the band have been so phenomenally busy this year that recording of their album has been pushed back to the Summer. It sold 125,000 copies last week overturning a depleted Bonnie Tyler by just 8,000 copies.

With Duran Duran's debut all the headlines this week have been stolen from David Bowie who himself debuts afresh at No 5 this week with "Let's Dance". It's the first single from what will be his 15th studio album also called "let's Dance" and he's roped in Chic's Nile Rogers on guitar and on production duties with an another image overall. It's a 17th top 10 hit for the thin white Duke but of all of those only 1980's "Ashes To Ashes" debuted higher when it entered at No 4 on a far greater first week tally of 107,000, "Let's Dance" only managed 59,000 last week.

The last time the top 10 contained two new entries was back in May when Adam Ant rocked in at No 5 ahead of Madness at No 8, both ended up as No 1 hits so we'll see how Bowie progresses over the weeks. Otherwise the charts are also full of movement, Style Council only move 6-4 (62,000) but record a hefty 73% sales hike thanks to considerable promotion over the course of last week yet predictions that it was going to No 1 were always well wide of the mark. Orange Juice also rise 10-9 (44,000), that sale incidentally would have given them a top 4 placing last week.

Heading in the wrong way are Eurythmics 2-3 (96,000), Forrest 4-6 (58,000) again though TOTP helped considerably to increase sales, Bananarama dip 5-7 (56,000) again despite a TOTP sales boost, Michael Jackson drops 3-8 (55,000) though he remains top 2 on the album charts and Modern Romance reverse 8-10 (36,000).

The HMV Retrochart is ready for uploading. But first the makers and shakers - are these songs in your Retrochart yet?

Number 50 - new entry for FR David and "Words" - a song that's been a big hit all over Europe and now in cubland:


(In the future this song will be featured in the film "Call me by my name")
