  1. THE POPJUSTICE RETROCHART
    We are taking a trip down memory lane

    The Chart

    - This is a retrochart which commenced week ending 5 January 1980.

    - Post in the thread each week or start a new conversation with me with your top 10/20/100 songs.

    - 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 or title 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 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.

    - There are no tied positions and in the event of a points tie the song gaining most points or losing fewer points will chart higher.

    - This week is week ending 6 August 1983. You can chart anything released prior to 31 July 1983 including anything released in 1980-1982.

  13. Hmm I'm struggling with my release schedule.

    We seem to have hit a point where there are quite a few classics being released which don't chart in the UK for a while yet but are already charting in the US or are dance hits.

    I'm already finding it difficult not to start charting:

    Ain't Nobody Chaka Khan (it may just be #1 for months)
    Just Be Good To Me SOS Band
    It's Raining Men Weather Girls
    Tell Her About It Billy Joel

    … then there's a certain debut album which has just been released.

    01 [​IMG] 01 01 05 Who's That Girl | Eurythmics [​IMG] 125,000 THIRD WEEK AT NUMBER ONE
    02 [​IMG] 02 02 05 Cruel Summer | Bananarama [​IMG] 120,000
    03 [​IMG] 04 03 03 Everything Counts | Depeche Mode 75,000
    04 [​IMG] 08 04 03 Human Nature | Michael Jackson 55,000

    05 [​IMG] 03 01 09 Wherever I Lay My Hat | Paul Young [​IMG] 55,000
    06 [​IMG] 14 06 05 Give It Up | KC & The Sunshine Band 42,500
    07 [​IMG] 25 07 02 Club Tropicana | Wham! 42,000

    08 [​IMG] 09 08 05 Lawyers In Love | Jackson Browne 40,000

    09 [​IMG] 06 04 07 Pieces Of Ice | Diana Ross [​IMG] 40,000
    10 [​IMG] 05 05 08 I.O.U. | Freeez [​IMG] 34,000

    Eurythmics stay atop the chart for a third week with Bananarama a close runner up ahead of a surge from Depeche Mode. Michael Jackson has his fifth consecutive top five hit from Thriller which itself has been in the album top five for 29 consecutive weeks now, nine at the summit.

    KC & The Sunshine Band are back with a UK top five hit this week and almost match that success shooting 14-6 here. Wham! also return to the top ten hurtling 25-7 in their second week charted as the album Fantastic completes a month on top of the album chart. Jackson Browne still manages a 9-8 climb and could yet go further.
