The Chart

- This is a retrochart which commenced week ending 5 January 1980.

- Post in the thread each week or start a new conversation with me with your top 10/20/100 songs.

- Each week I will post a list of new entries and releases that are eligible to chart and links to international charts (click on the flag / icon or title for the hyperlink).

- The list will not be exhaustive and you are free to add any more obscure songs on your personal list released up to that date or songs contemporaneously charting on international charts. If you do I would appreciate any links to evidence the release date or chart history to update the archive.

- You are free to use your own personal charts from the time (if you have them) or create an updated list for this chart.

- Please rank your songs from your favourite downwards. (eg #1 down to #100). Your #1 gets 100 points, #2 gets 99 points etc

- The weekly PJOPS Retrochart is compiled from accumulated points each week.

- It would be fantastic if you could regularly contribute lists but understandably there may be weeks you can not. If someone fails to contribute towards a weekly chart their previous week’s choices will be frozen and contribute to the chart but the points will be halved. This is to prevent wild fluctuations in chart positions depending on contributions.

- There are no tied positions and in the event of a points tie the song gaining most points or losing fewer points will chart higher.

12 10 03 New Year's Day U2 33,000
Continuing to make all the running it's another easy week at No 1 for Men At Work despite a sales increase of just 3% to 131,000 which might suggest that buyers are more and more being swayed by the album which still sits atop the album survey. "Down Under" has so far shifted 381,000 copies with the half million mark in clear sight for next week.

A story of steadily improving chart positions shows the ascending of Echo & The Bunnymen over the years, their last single "The Back Of Love" became their first top 20 single and now they go even better with "The Cutter" which climbs 11-8 (37,000) this week. It's taken from their third album "Porcupine" which is released today and will be vying for the No 1 spot come the weekend, following on from their success and current top 10 single from Wah! (4-7, 38,000) it now means all former members of The Crucial Three have had top 10 hits with other outfits.

Another band with a seemingly constant growing critical reputation and fanbase are Ireland's U2. Fronted by Bono the group have made a stock in trade of being political with their music and no less so with their current offering "New Year's Day" which concerns itself with the Polish political movement "Solidarity". It previews their third album "War" which reaches the shops next month, the single meanwhile struggles 12-10 (33,000) and looks like it is starting to struggle, but it's already a significant improvement on their previous best "Fire" in 1981 which ended up at No 35.

Eddy Grant left it late to overtake Phil Collins in the end the two tracks selling 85,000 and 80,000 respectively as they come in at No's 2 & 3 proving an easy block to the rising Belle Stars who can only move 5-4 with a nice 67% sales increase to 65,000 thanks in the main to TOTP. Two climbers are immediately behind them, Kajagoogoo halve their position 10-5 (42,000) leapfrogging over Laura Branigan who still rises 8-6 (40,000), whilst Joe Jackson reverses 6-9 (34,000)

The HMV Retrochart is locked and loaded - before the upload - here come this week's makers and shakers - are these songs in your Retrochart yet?

Number 50 - new entry for Dep Leppard with "Photograph" and is lead singer Joe Elliott wearing red legwarmers on black leather trousers!?! 1983's hot fashion tip!
 
Number 48 - new entry for The Fun Three who are back so soon after "The More I see (the less I believe)" with their new single called "Tunnel of love":
 
Number 44 - new entry for Simple Minds who have released "New Gold Dream (81/82/83/84)" in Mainland Europe as a single but not in the UK yet!
 
The highest new entry this week comes in at Number 38 for Tears For Fears. They have two singles in the HMV Retrochart at the moment as "Madworld" falls to Number 49, "Change" enters the chart:
