I give you this week the Ö3-Hitparade from 6/2/83.
This was a weekly radio show in Austria. This ranking was a mixture of the votings of a jury, of the listeners, of the music-shops and of the music-industrie. And it was important because this was what we all listened to when we finally got into music ...

I need to get organised, I know. But this will take a while, sorry for that.

Some questions to you:

Is it ok if I take part from now on? I quite like the idea!
Would you like me to exclude the German language songs?
I'll try to catch up - I will add my favs as soon as they chart in the UK / US. Won't wait 'till they finally reach Austria :).

So just be honest - I don't want to disturb your ways :)!

Of course you can continue to take part. Everyone is welcome.

You are welcome to try to catch up to May 1983 - there are threads for each week 05/02/83, 12/02/83, 19/02/83 etc etc

There are no rules on inclusion other than release date. If you want to include German songs that's fine, they are just unlikely to do as well as the english language ones (bar the odd obvious international hits like Nena, Peter Schilling and Falco etc) so please don't be too disappointed.

Spare a thought for U2 who gain again this week but just miss out on a top ten place for a third week (11-11-12) because we have two big climbers into our top ten!

Despite hitting #2 along with Paul McCartney a few months ago with his debut single from his second album Thriller, after just three weeks this is already his biggest solo retrochart hit since Rock With You hit #1 in early 1980. it's a high climber moving 21-4. Could it be his second chart topper next week?
