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.

Chartfile w/e 29th January 1983
Phil Collins rebounds to the top of the Retrochart to make it four weeks in total for "You can't hurry love" - it's the @Filippa effect. But can Men at Work rebound? Has "Down Under" been released in Austria yet? Other climbers inside the top ten include Toto, Eddy Grant, Kajagoogoo and Wham! non-Movers are Wah! (7) and The Belle Stars (9) and heading south are Laura Branigan and Joe Jackson. Can U2 enter the top ten next week with "New Year's day"? Only @phoenix123 has the answers - stay tuned!

It was an almighty tussle at the top of the charts this week but there could be just winner and in the by a margin of just 8,000 it went to Men At Work whose "Down Under" cannot be denied the top spot moving 2-1 on a sale of 127,000 copies whilst simultaneously topping the album charts. The album is also No 1 in Australia and it tops the charts in the US where they also have the No 1 single, in doing the double on both sides of the Atlantic simultaneously they become the first act since Rod Stewart some 11 years ago. The loser in all this is Phil Collins who is bounced down to No 2 but he has sold 119,000 this week and 471,000 in total and becomes his solo best seller- all reasons to soften the blow.

From the ashes of the 2-Tone movement, and in particular the band the Bodysnatchers, The Belle Stars were signed to Stiff records but their first three singles all failed to shake the charts. Trying their luck with covers the group finally hit it big with "Iko Iko" which had the misfortune to be released the same time as Natasha's version (which peaked at No 10) and furthers covers of "The Clapping Song" and "Mockingbird" have also charted with the former narrowly missing out on the top 10 itself last year. The wait is, however, finally over for the band with "Sign Of The Times" soaring 19-5 (39,000) this week to break their duck.

Originally a top 10 hit in most of Europe in 1979 for Italian Umberto Tozzi, "Gloria" failed to impress here when it was translated into English and became a No 65 "smash" for Jonathan King that same year. Now covered by Laura Branigan the song was a No 2 smash for 3 weeks in November 1982 and now travels across the pond to smash here climbing 20-8 (33,000).

Hailing from Leighton Buzzard Kajagoogoo are named after a baby's first words, but they show they are no chart innocents getting their debut single "Too Shy" into the top 10 thanks to the help of a certain Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran fame. Lead singer Chris Hamill (stage name Limahl- an anagram of his surname) is the eye catching star of the group as far as the teen mags are concerned, he met Rhodes whilst working as a waiter in London's "Embassy Club" persuading the star to help his launch his groups career, Rhodes co-writes and co-produces the track with Duran Duran's regular producer Colin Thurston, the track flies 33-10 (30,000) this week.

Eddy Grant didn't pose any threat to the top 2 as I predicted last week as it moves 4-3 (57,000), he's joined by Joe Jackson as a climber in the top 10, he moves 8-6 (38,000). The Maisonettes hold at No 7 (37,000) but it's the wrong way for both Wah! and Keith Harris & Orville as they fall 3-4 (54,000) and 5-9 (32,000) respectively.

25,000 HIGHCLIMBER


Phil Collins retains the summit comfortably for a second week in a static top three this week, going GOLD in the process, something he hasn't managed before, even with previous chart topper In The Air Tonight. Men At Work and Toto step a spot closer to the summit at the expense of Eurythmics who can't complain too much as they are heading to GOLD certification themselves at this rate. Donna Summer continues to progress 9-7, surprisingly out peaking previous hit State Of Independence which only managed #10 in a competitive pre-Christmas field.

Wham! have managed a second top ten hit this year already, moving 12-8, and January isn't even over yet!

Newcomers Kajagoogoo leap into the top ten 29-10, mirroring their leap on the UK chart.
