  1. THE POPJUSTICE RETROCHART
    We are taking a trip down memory lane

    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.

    - This week is week ending 11 June 1983. You can chart anything released prior to 5 June 1983 including anything released in 1980-1982.

    01 [​IMG] 08 01 03 Every Breath You Take | The Police 75,000 NEW NUMBER ONE
    02 [​IMG] 03 02 04 Nobody's Diary | Yazoo [​IMG] 65,000
    03 [​IMG] 09 03 05 Flashdance….. What A Feeling | Irene Cara 60,000
    04 [​IMG] 02 02 05 Bad Boys | Wham! [​IMG] 60,000
    05 [​IMG] 06 05 06 Buffalo Soldier | Bob Marley [​IMG] 55,000

    06 [​IMG] 01 01 09 Temptation | Heaven 17 [​IMG] 55,000
    07 [​IMG] 04 01 07 Pale Shelter | Tears For Fears [​IMG] 54,000
    08 [​IMG] 05 03 10 Physical Attraction | Madonna [​IMG] 50,000
    09 [​IMG] 14 09 03 Wanna Be Startin' Something | Michael Jackson 40,000
    10 [​IMG] 12 10 07 I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues | Elton John 35,000

    The Police ascend with relative ease to the summit this week as challengers jostle for position. Wham! have a shocker slipping 2-4, as both Yazoo and Irene Cara capitalise, only holding off a still rising Bob Marley. Cara's move 9-3 could be bad news for The Police next week.

    Michael Jackson is back already with his third single from Thriller which has now been at the summit of the album charts in USA, UK and Canada simultaneously for 4 weeks!

    Also returning to the top ten is Elton John but surprisingly this is only his third time here and both previous attempts stalled at #10 (Nobody Wins in June 1981 and Chloe in September 1981). After 7 weeks this is already his biggest hit though and should be his first SILVER certification next week.

  18. Interesting read in Billboard this week - Chris Sievey (AKA Frank Sidebottom) releasing the world's first ever computer game pop single. Pete Shelley releases his album XL-1 in July which will be packaged with a ZX Spectrum programme to run the lyrics on screen along with the music.

    Maybe lyric videos are the future of pop?
