"Baby Jane" continues to lead a disappointing chart in terms of sales, it recorded a mildly improved tally of 75,000 copies last week as the charts return a chart topper for an eighth week whose sales are under 100,000. That equals the 1980 record tally when the same feat occurred Jun-Aug and with nothing on the horizon to break the roll we could be set for a record week this time in 7 days. Stewart's album "Body Wishes" meanwhile spends its third week at No 5 and seems like its struggling to make nay kind of advance.

Former lead singer with the Streetband and Q-Tips, Paul Young has ditched his bandmates and headed out on his own. You may recall the group's only charting single was the novelty hit "Toast" which made No 18 thanks to the help of Kenny Everett, but now he proves to be justified in going solo, Young's first two singles "Iron Out The Rough Spots" and "Love Of The Common People" both failed to dent the charts but a cover of Marvin Gaye's "Wherever I Lay My Hat (That's My Home)" leaps 12-3 (53,000). It was originally a B-side to Gaye's single "Too Busy Thinkin Bout My Baby" and almost stole the runner up spot from a marginally improved Irene Cara who advances 3-2 (56,000).

Another former lead vocalist with a band making a break for it is Tom Robinson, he of Tom Robinson Band fame whose biggest hit with the combo was 1977's "2-4-6-8 Motorway" which peaked at No 5. The singer fell on tough times after the demise of the group at the start of the decade and spent some time on in Germany where he wrote "War Baby" about the divide between East and West Germany and sees his return to the upper flight after a 6 years as it moves 17-6 (44,000)

Heaven 17 clock up a second top 10 hit with "Come Live With Me" this week as it accelerates 16-7 (40,000). The parent album "The Luxury Gap" which hasn't left the top 20 since it was released 10 weeks ago, a marked improvement on the performance of their previous albums which never progressed beyond No 14.

Freeez continue to move up 7-5 (46,000) whilst rather surprisingly Mike Oldfield can't improve on his No 4 position as he sticks in the groove at No 4 though with a sales increase to 49,000, but he's not the only one as Shalamar find the going tough as they hold at No 8 (40,000). Meanwhile the Police dive 2-9 (37,000) but have now sold 477,000 copies which is enough for the YTD top 10 and as we reach the half way point in the year here's that list.....

1- LET'S DANCE- David Bowie 713,000
2- TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART- Bonnie Tyler 706,000
3- TRUE- Spandau Ballet 702,000
4- DOWN UNDER- Men At Work 683,000
5- BILLIE JEAN- Michael Jackson 645,000
6- SWEET DREAMS (ARE MADE OF THIS)- Eurythmics 584,000
7- YOU CAN'T HURRY LOVE- Phil Collins 542,000
8- TOO SHY- Kajagoogoo 534,000
9- IS THERE SOMETHING I SHOULD KNOW- Duran Duran 505,000
10- EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE- 477,000

Elton rounds off the ten as he drops 5-10 (32,000).
