17 10 07 Watching You Watching Me David Grant 33,000
"Give It Up" retains the top slot for a third week as it also sells its 300,000 copy, in all 83,000 buyers decided it was the song for them which means that the total for KC & The Sunshine Band swells to 302,000. It was another easy victory for the track which was never under threat at any point and with nothing looking like a real challenger at present it looks set for a fourth week as well.

If there is a challenger to KC's chart crown then surely Madness must be it. "Wings Of A Dove" is a new non album single from the group which now turns into their 14th top 10 hit and 13th of the 80s which makes them well clear in the list of acts with the most top tenners in the decade. The song is unusual in their cannon as it features joint vocals between Suggs and Smash and this weak powers 19-6 (47,000) in it second week on the charts- could it become their second No 1 next week?

UB40's fourth album "Labour Of Love" is an album of covers which have been given the groups trademark Reggae make over, and the first single plucked from the project is a cover of Neil Diamond's 1968 No 62 US song "Red Red Wine" which flies 36-9 (36,000) this week to become the group's 4th appearance in the top flight. They have been absent from the big 10 for just over 2 years with most commentators considering them past their best when their last 4 singles all failed to go higher than No 25 with the parent album "UB44" underperforming hence a move to more commercial sound- looks like it worked.

As lead singer of Linx David Grant was last in the top 10 back in 1981 when "Intuition" peaked at No 7, the group disbanded late last year when their chart fortunes faded with Grant deciding to go solo and debut solo release "Stop And Go" went all the way to No 19. He's doing a lot better with their third release "Watching You, Watching Me" which advances 17-10 ( 33,000), the self titled album will be released in October.

Wham! and Depeche Mode are both on the way out slipping 4-5 (51,000) and 6-7 (42,000) and Elton is still standing and still climbing 5-4 (52,000). There are 3 non movers Herbie Hancock at No 8 (40,000) and right at the top Spandau Ballet hold at No 2 (57,000) though sales are well down, and the Style Council are unlucky not to nab the runner up spot whilst they hold at No 3 (52,000).

Bananarama have a third week topping the charts but are likely to be caught by Spandau Ballet next week who move 5-2 at the expense of both Depeche Mode and Wham!

Nothing is new to the ten this week but Billy Joel scores yet another top five hit moving 10-5 in anticipation of his new album An Innocent Man in a couple of weeks. The Style Council continue to enjoy the summer moving 9-7. Elton is held at #6 for now but he could yet get a second consecutive top five hit….
