Having difficulty this week. There are loads of great songs on the chart but it's first time in ages I can't decide what's gong to be on top over Christmas in the Renee & Renato vacuum and my favourites in retrospect like Everybody and Love Is A Stranger were chart flops (at this point) so aren't storming up to the top (yet?).

I think this might start happening more often now.

Hall & Oates just manage to hold on for a third week at the top, equalling Queen's record as the artist with most ever weeks at the summit - nine weeks.

Shalamar again move 5-2 to make it four consecutive top three hits from their current album as Wham! also move into the top three. Duran Duran make the top five again this week for the third time this year after Hungry Like The Wolf #3 and Save A Prayer #4.

Both Bucks Fizz and Madness look to be ending 1982 as it began, with singles in the top ten. Bucks Fizz have had four top ten hits this year and two went all the way to the summit. They move 8-6 this week. Madness make it three top ten hits this year - after previous single Driving In My Car stalled for three weeks at #11, they move 13-8 this week to return to the ten. Culture Club could yet climb further as they nudge 10-9 also.

EG's TOP 40 RETROCHART: Week Ending 18th December 1982
18-12-82a.jpg

18-12-82b.jpg


EG's Chartdust: Only a week to go before the 1982 Christmas chart, and Blancmange will hope to see off the dual threat from Madness and Bucks Fizz. Just two records are new to the Top 10, as Shalamar and Ultravox both inch up a few places from outside the upper echelon. The highest climber and the highest entry are both seasonal efforts, with the Bowie/Bing duet originally dating from 1977.
