23 10 02 When We Were Young Bucks Fizz 29,000

We're turning into a police state this week as the group top the singles chart with "Every Breath You Take" and the album charts with "Synchronicity" pushing all opposition aside to become their 4th album chart topper. Indeed the single barely feels the impact of the album release selling a healthy 81,000 copies (a 3% drop week on week) and in retaining the top spot for a fourth week it equals the 1983 record set by Spandau Ballet's "True" for most weeks at No 1 this year. In the US the song also makes the top 10 as it moves up to No 4 but will have to continue to grow to topple Irene Cara who is topping the charts for a fifth week over there whilst it holds at No 4 here (in neat symmetry with the Police) on a sales dip of 49,000.

"Thriller" spends a 15th straight week in the top 5 as it makes way for the Police on the album charts, in the meantime Jackson plucks a fourth single from it and "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" doesn't disappoint in becoming a fourth top 10 hit from it as the song climbs 14-8 (36,000). This is the second time that Jackson has pulled four top tenners from a studio album but the rumour is that he isn't quite done yet with a "spectacular" video in production for his next single "Thriller".

Without doubt the greatest success story of Eurovision in the 80s Bucks Fizz are already on their ninth single and a greatest hits album which is due before Christmas. "When We Were Young" became their highest debuting single last week when it entered at no 23 and this weeks shoot to No 10 (29,000) and becomes their sixth single to do so, it's a marked change in direction for the group musically speaking, veering away from pure pop to a more sophisticated sound but it seems to have worked for the group. The band have never failed to reach the top 20 which is quite an achievement and should ensure that the best of album is a strong seller for the big day.

Rod Stewart's "Baby Jane" expands 6-2 but only sales wise by 31% to 56,000 and may pose a threat given he should be on TOTP this week whilst Bowie slides 2-3 (51,000) and Wham! continue to lose their grip 3-5 (47,000).

Outside the top 5 there are better showings for Elton John 9-6 (43,000) and Flash And The Pan continue to chase him 10-7 (40,000) whilst Yazoo slide 5-9 (31,000) as we wave them goodbye.
