The Police's reign at the top continues for a third week with "Every Breath You Take" posting another good sale at the top of 84,000 to bring its total to 294,000 which should see it in the top 10 for the year when we review the list in a couple of weeks time, parent album "Synchronicity" is out this week which could spell trouble for the single. Especially so as Bowie is piling on the pressure, "China Girl" blazes 8-2 (62,000) with the only factors against it going further will be the lack of TOTP this week coupled with the album's outstanding performance where it holds at No 2 again this week behind Jackson's "Thriller. By way of trivia the song is now highest placed track in history to contain the word "China" in it, sailing past Emile Ford & The Checkmates 1960 No 3 hit "Slow Boat To China".

Notching up his 16th top 10 hit Rod Stewart has had a disappointing 1980s thus far with only one of those coming in the decade (1981's "Tonight I'm Yours") with that song peaking at No 8. Well today he now has his biggest 80s hit as "Baby Jane" arrives 19-6 (43,000) it's the lead single from Rod's 12th studio album "Body Wishes" which debuts at No 11 today, and this single is now his biggest hit since 1978's "Do You Think I'm Sexy" which of course went all the way to the top!

With an 80s track record very much akin to Rod Stewart, Elton John is also having trouble finding his feet in the charts with only "Blue Eyes" scoring any kind of success with the UK public after 1979. Brushing all that aside and proving you can't quite write him off he's found his form again with the hit "I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues" which cruises 18-9 (34,000) this week to become his 12th top 10 hit. Elton's 17th album "Too Low For Zero" climbs 9-7 this week and sees a return full time for Bernie Taupin who last wrote an entire John album back in 1976, seems the UK public agrees.

Before their new single Flash And The Pan were primarily known for their 1978 track "And The Band Played On" (No 54) about the Titanic sinking and their song "Walking In The Rain" which was a minor cult hit in Europe for Grace Jones. In the wake of the success of Men At Work we can't, it seems, get enough of Australian pop and these Aussies rise 12-10 (32,000) with "Waiting For A Train" which contains the vocals of Stevie Wright formerly of the Easybeats (Biggest hit "Friday On My Mind" No 6, 1966).

Irene Cara is also showing promise with "Flashdance....What A Feeling" which continues to attract buyers moving 9-4 (52,000) but it isn't good news for the remainder. Wham dip 2-3 (60,000), Yazoo recede 3-5 (45,000), Bob Marley ebbs 4-7 (40,000) and Booker Newbury III heads south 6-8 (38,000)

The Police are on top for a second week but the challenge from Irene Cara remains moving 3-2 on 75,000 which would have been enough for #1 last week.

Moving 9-4, Michael Jackson has a fourth top five hit from Thriller which spends a sixth week on top of the album chart and is likely to go 3x Platinum next week.

Elton John moves 10-5 to gain his first SILVER certified single with far and away his biggest single yet. Rod Stewart and David Bowie return to the top ten. For Bowie this is the first time he has managed it with consecutive singles.
