Chartfile W/e 18th December 1982:

Hall and Oates are unstoppable at the top - five weeks for "Maneater" in the pole position! MJ & PC just can't quite topple them as "The girl is mine" remains at Number Two this week for a third week! Culture Club are stuck at Number 4 with "Time (Clock of the heart)" - meanwhile climbing inside the top ten are Phil Collins, Shalamar, Madness, Bucks Fizz and Duran Duran are rebounding again with "Rio"! Heading down are Wham! and The Human League! Who will be the Christmas Number One of 1982? Only @phoenix123 has the answers - stay tuned!
