@phoenix123 #1 FOURTH WEEK AT NUMBER ONE

A new peak here, as current US single Borderline hits our bubbling under chart and is the next single to be released internationally. Previous hit Holiday is still gaining traction worldwide, including Australia where previous single Burning Up is likely to be her next hit. The staggered alternative releases in different markets seem to be working…. so far.

Originally released in summer 83 this failed to reach our 100 first time around. Now a UK top twenty hit, where it falls 13-17 from its peak last week and their first retrochart top ten. This is by far their biggest hit. Out of four attempts only one other single made the 100 with Take Your Time making #41 in 1980.
