Congratulations to Kajagoogoo who have their debut week at Number One with their debut single called "Too Shy":


Cubfile:
Kajagoogoo have the new Number One this week as “Two shy” jumps from 5 to 1 – they’ve done it with their debut single! Meanwhile former Number Ones Men at Work and Phil Collins slide down the top ten along with Joe Jackson. Eddy Grant is stuck at Number Two with “Electric Avenue” but everything else inside the top ten is climbing: The Belle Stars, Level 42, Michael Jackson, Wham! and Echo and the Bunnymen – is there a future Number One amongst that lot?
This week’s highest new entry comes from Tears For Fears with “Change” at Number 38. They also have the longer runner on the chart with the former Number One “Mad World” which goes down from 33 to 49 after 19 weeks!

Next Week could see new entries from Depeche Mode, Thin Lizzy, Musical Youth, Spandau Ballet, Eurythmics and Joboxers – stay tuned!

Phil Collins extends his reign to three weeks and his tally of total weeks at the summit to seven. Dionne Warwick is going nowhere fast with a sixth week in the top two and Madonna spends a month at #3 with another static top three this week.

Toto and Wham make modest climbs to new peaks but newcomers Kajagoogoo are the fastest climbers 10-6

Belle Stars are the only new top ten hit this week sliding 11-10. Eurythmics may be on the way out but at least they have finally topped the dance chart this week!

EG's TOP 40 RETROCHART: Week Ending 5th February 1983

05-02-83a.jpg

05-02-83b.jpg


EG's Chartdust: This week Electric Avenue takes Eddy Grant higher, to the very top of the charts, but there are some Men from Down Under working hard at keeping its reign to a single week. It's going to be close.

No fewer than 8 new entries, led by Billie Jean, the track from Michael Jackson's Thriller that really should have been the lead single instead of The Girl Is Mine (which underperformed on the EG Top 40, peaking at #16).
