Rod Stewart clings to the No 1 spot this week with "Baby Jane" but he had to fight hard to keep it, only just retaining his lead on Saturday but he sold a poor 63,000 copies this week to bring the total sales of the single to 335,000 which for a three week chart topper is poor even by 1983's standards. His main challenger was Paul Young who lead for most of the week with "Wherever I Lay My Hat" but had to settle for the runner up spot with 62,000 even without TOTP, it must now be favourite to be Stewart's successor.

The Funk Masters offer up a prime slice of UK soul with "It's Over" as it glides 15-8 (35,000). It's the first hit for the group and follows in the slipstream of acts like Shalamar and Shakatak in offering up a UK version of the genre which has long been the preserve of the Yanks.

Blazing 29-9 (32,000) is the third straight top 10 hit for the Eurythmics who are already preparing for the release of their third album "Touch". "Who's That Girl" comes with a video guest featuring several popstars including the Bucks Fizz girls, the girls from Bananarama, Hazel O'Connor, Kiki Dee and Kate Garner of Haysi Fantayzee as well as tabloid favourite Marilyn.

Malcolm McLaren must have been disappointed with his second single "Sowetto" fizzled out at No 32, but that appears to be a minor blip with "Double Dutch" this week climbing 19-10 (30,000). It's a "celebration" of the skipping game of the same name and must therefore be the first top 10 single to have such a theme or inspiration.

Freeez continue to move nearer to the top 5-3 (57,000) and Mike Oldfield again holds at No 4 and again increases sales this time to a best yet of 53,000 and Heaven 17 are also on the move 7-6 (44,000). Meanwhile Tom Robinson slides 6-7 (37,000) and Irene Cara finally runs out of steam 2-5 (46,000)

All change at the top as Paul Young takes over from Irene Cara after a week but it may be short lived as Eurythmics vault 10-2 and Bananarama are back shifting 16-4, both in just their second week charted. Which means Freeez and Diana Ross have their climbs halted, they might hope temporarily. Donna Summer seems to be peaking and is unfortunate to slump 5-9. Meanwhile Chris Sievey gets a surprise #10 hit thanks to an innovative video / home computer programme.
