  2. EG's TOP 40 RETROCHART: Week Ending 23rd July 1983

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    EG's Chartdust: There's a new #1, as Bananarama beat Eurythmics to the top spot, despite the latter originally having a 9-place advantage when both singles debuted 2 weeks ago. Paul Young moves impressively from 13 to 5, while Sylvian Sakamoto make a similar climb of 14-7. They are joined in the Top 10 by Donna Summer and The Cure.

    Every Breath You Take finally drops out of the Top 10 after 8 weeks, but The Police look certain to be back there next week with its follow-up from Synchronicity, Wrapped Around Your Finger which is the highest new entry at #13. Retrochart regulars Thompson Twins and Depeche Mode also return, as do Altered Images, Tracie and Al Jarreau.

    Notes
    The old ones
    20 - Si J'étais Un Homme is from 1980 but until a few weeks I thought it was from the 90s. Timeless.
    16 - Ride Like The Wind is also from 1980 and a classic. Perfect for sunny car rides.
    30 - From 1981 Tempted by Squeeze because I heard it in the background of a TV show. Discovered via Reality Bites soundtrack so another 90s memory.
    The recent ones
    Baby Jane (11) - I just needed time to notice it in the chart, I was too focused on the new entries at the lowest part.
    The lowest part of the chart where China Girl (21) is a new entry at number 92, nearly two months later.
     
  4. The new chart is being compiled.

    While you wait enjoy the 3,200th song to chart on the extended retrochart. It entered at #207 last week thanks to a new entry at #96 on my chart. It has a long way to go to reach the top 100 but could it be a hit on anyone else's chart in the coming weeks?

    It's a third week for Irene Cara but the margin at the top narrows. Can The Police return to the top next week?
