I think he missed a week, I noticed that too. 23-Jul 83 is missing.
Also, ouch for Eurythmics 2-9?
Ah yes! Good spot. So it *is* 9 weeks.
Just not summer-y enough I suppose, at that point the school holidays had started and it was the teenage suburban version of Club Tropicana for me!
Good Spot - Thank you @Eric Generic and @phoenix123 - I omitted w/e 23-Jul-83 in this "Stats" list - This has now been updated correctly!

(17) In the latest French Chart from July 31, 1983 I picked Chris Rea at #58. A fine summer playlist addition.
(11) From 1982 Jack & Diane, because it's great sample in I Think I'm in Love with You by Jessica Simpson . And it's a good summer song, really refreshing.
(20) From 1981 Chariot of Fire. I fell in a rabbit hole of Grammy nominated songs, it was nominated for Record of The Year in 1983.
The memory of the slow-mo running scene, the sounds, all evoke a breezy ambience.
(30) Elle Est D'Ailleurs, the instrumental version could be the soundtrack of a film about the deep sea. Chart from June 1981.
(35) Bette Davis Eyes, it's a classic summer hit.
