"Uptown Girl" continues to lead the field effortlessly for a third week though it appears to have peaked sales wise selling a further 141,000 copies this week to bring its overall haul to 477,000. The album powers 12-4 this week to become his highest placed LP of his 12 year long career, the single is also the 16th chart topper of 1983 which is on course to become a slow year for number one singles, the record lowest for the 80s is currently the 19 chart toppers of 1981.

The Vince Clarke success story continues, after steering Depeche Mode to the top 10 he left the group to form Yazoo to produce three top 10 singles and two top 3 albums before calling it a day on that group earlier this year. He's now joined up with long time producer and friend Eric Radcliffe to form The Assembly, a project which it is envisaged will have a different "hired" frontman for each song they make, the first fruits from the new group is fronted by former Undertones lead singer Feargal Sharkey who sings "Never Never" which grabs another top 10 single for Clarke's third outfit as it rises 36-10 (35,000) and is certainly one to look out for given that it is only in its second week.

The Assembly are the only new entry in the big 10 this week after the gluttony of last week which gives some time for other singles to improve their position. Paul McCartney & Michael Jackson rise 3-2 as they top the 90,000 mark, Shaky follows them 4-3 (86,000), Madness (9-5, 51,000) and the Cure (10-7, 45,000) also see a rich return this week. Four tracks are the move down, Lionel Richie 2-4 (83,000), Adam Ant (5-6, 47,000), Men Without Hats (7-8, 44,000) and Culture Club 8-9 (38,000) but they will top the 1.3 million mark next week-a truly phenomenal record!

Let's do this Retrochart properly - the Makers and Shakers this week are:

Number 50 - new entry for Nik Kershaw and his debut single "I won't let the sun go down on me":
 
Number 40 - new entry for Tina Turner. The boys from Heaven 17 got her back in the studio last year to record a cover of "Ball of Confusion" for their BEF album "Music of Quality and Distinction" and now they've helped to produce and provide backing vocals on her cover of "Let's stay together":
