Well any fears that Bonnie Tyler had reached her peak where swept aside this week as "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" powered to another easy victory selling a new 1983 record of 146,000 copies to lift its overall haul to 402,000 and now hot on the heels of "Billie Jean" which has now totalled 507,000 after shifting 93,000 as it falls 2-3. In between those two tracks are Eurythmics who swap places with Jackson and see 119,000 copies fly out of stores, that track has now sold 303,000 copies, Impressive totals all around for tracks which are still in the top 3 and are more than double the sales away from the rest of the field.

When Weller called time on The Jam last autumn anticipation was rife for his next project, he teemed up with Mick Talbot (formerly of Dexy's Midnight Runners) to form the Style Council and the new band were announced as soon as the dust had settled on his former group. The first fruits of the labour is "Speak Like A Child" which debuts this week straight into No 6 (36,000) and features the backing vocals of Tracie Young (Weller's protégée) who herself releases her first solo track this month. Don't be clambering for the album though, it isn't pencilled in until Christmas!

The replacement of Geoff Deane at the end of last year proved to be a wise commercial move with Michael Mullins collecting his fair share of teenage magazine covers and helping the group to bigger hits than they previously achieved, indeed last single "Best Years Of Our Lives" has sold 337,000 copies in total and is their best seller. They'll be hoping to change that as "High Life" is propelled 18-8 (34,000) and is their third top 10 smash.

13 Top 10 hits including 4 chart toppers between 1957-1965 is an impressive tally but it's now been 18 years since Phil Everly was in the top 10, that changes this week as he hooks up with Cliff Richard to score a hit with "She Means Nothing To Me" as it climbs 14-9 (31,000) this week. It's Cliff's 48th Top 10 hit which somewhat dwarfs the achievements of Phil Everly but then few can compete with the consistency of Richard.

Orange Juice are a band who you may only be familiar with if you follow Indie music at all, they've had four hits which have charted but all have failed to dent the top 40 until "Rip It Up" was released which not only becomes their first Top 40 single but their first top 10 smash as it climbs 22-10 (29,000). It's the title track to their second album which has yet to grace the top 20 but perhaps that's about to change?

Elsewhere we have one of each, Bananarama climb 7-5 (37,000), Forrest holds at No 4 (43,000) though he loses sales, and Toto continue to falter 5-7 (36,000)
