Chartfile w/e 12th March 1983
Michael Jackson has a comfortable lead as "Billie Jean" makes it two weeks on top. Climbing inside the top Ten behind him are Eurythmics, Bonnie Tyler, Spandau Ballet, Thompson Twins, Forrest and Bananarama. Heading down are former Number Ones from Toto and Men at Work. Kajagoogoo's "Too shy" peaked at Number Two in the end and is heading down the chart! Can MJ make it a hatrick? Only @phoenix123 has the answers - stay tuned!

No-one really doubted that Michael Jackson would keep the No 1 spot but the charts throw up a genuine surprise today as his reign at the top is restricted to just a week, the first one week chart topper since Charlene back last June. Jackson was behind Bonnie Tyler from the off though a late surge saw him sell 131,000 copies as the total for "Billie Jean" rises to 414,000, that's a 19% sales increase week on week. All of which wasn't enough to outpace Tyler who had built up a considerable lead with "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" but ended up just 7,000 ahead on 138,000 and is writer Jim Steinman's first UK No 1 single as well as Tyler's, it's also the first chart topper by a Welsh artist since Shakin Stevens topped the charts just over a year ago.

A No 6 hit in 1974 for the Hues Corporation "Rock The Boat" makes its return to the top 10 this week as a cover by Forrest M Thomas Jnr or Forrest as he's known professionally. The song rises 12-4 (50,000) and in only its third week on the survey outperforms the original though of course Forrest is by birth American and he will have a much higher benchmark to match in his homeland where the Hues Corporation topped the charts.

The debut Bananarama album arrives this week "Deep Sea Skiving" and contains all their singles minus the Fun Boy Three collaboration "It Ain't What You Do" and should be a big seller. It also contains their cover of Steam's "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" (which like the already discussed "Rock The Boat") was a US chart topper but a No 9 hit here, and like Forrest, now becomes a bigger hit in a cover by the girl group, it's also a marked improvement on the girls last single "Cheers Then" which got lost in the Christmas rush and finished at No 45 becoming their first single since their debut release to fail to make the top 10.

The Eurythmics continue to threaten as they rise 5-3 (96,000) meaning that the top 3 are return record tallies for the year so far as a testament to their strength, Madness hold at No 8 (38,000) and Thompson Twins are locked one place below at No 9 (35,000). On the way out are Toto (4-5 49,000) Kajagoogoo (3-6 46,000) and Musical Youth 6-10 (35,000)
