    It's taken them 8 weeks (49-46-41-40-15-5-3-2) and now Wham! are up to Number two with "Young guns (go for it)" - can they make it to the summit next week?:

    The Human League make it two weeks at Number One this week with "Mirror Man":

    The Human League make it two weeks at the top with “Mirror Man” – musically their tribute to Motown and Lyrically – is it really about Adam Ant? Talking of Adam Ant – he climbs four places this week from 36 to 32 with “Desperate but not serious” – can he make the top ten? Meanwhile climbing up the top ten this week are Wham!, Hall and Oates (rebounding), Donna Summer, A Flock of Seagulls, Blancmange, Culture Club, Duran Duran and Icehouse. The former Number One from Tears for Fears is the only single going down inside the top ten this week! A very strong top ten!
    The longest runner on the HMV Retrochart is “Do you really want to hurt me” by Culture Club which falls to Number 35 after 13 weeks on the HMV Retrochart.
    The Jam have announced that they’re splitting up. Their final single “Beat Surrender” enters the mainstream UK Chart at Number One but in the HMV Retrochart it completely misses the top ten and enters at Number 22. Their consolation prize is that they’re still the highest new entry this week!

    Next Week could see new entries from:
    Kool and the Gang, Abba, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, Elvis Costello and the Attractions, Imagination, The Maisonettes, Dionne Warwick and Rene and Renato – stay tuned!

  20. EG's TOP 40 RETROCHART: Week Ending 4th December 1982


    EG's Chartdust: They did it; Blancmange finally overcome The Human League to score their first EG Retrochart #1. Whether they manage to remain there for very long is another matter, as Madness surge 11-3, Bucks Fizz climb 13-5, Culture Club waste no time in moving 18-7, and even The Jam's parting shot (Beat Surrender) has an outside chance, debuting at 9.
