Popjustice Retrochart - OCTOBER 1982 - w/e 16/10/82

THE RETROCHART
We are taking a trip down memory lane

<< 09/10/82 | Retrochart Vault | 23/10/82 >>

The Rules

- This is a retrochart which commenced week ending 5 January 1980.

- Post in the thread or start a new conversation with me with your top 10/20/100 songs of each week.

- Each week I will post a list of new entries and releases that are eligible to chart and links to international charts (click on the flag / icon for the hyperlink).

- The list will not be exhaustive and you are free to add any more obscure songs on your personal list released up to that date or songs contemporaneously charting on international charts. If you do I would appreciate any links to evidence the release date or chart history to update the archive.

- You are free to use your own personal charts from the time (if you have them) or create an updated list for this chart.

- Please rank your songs from your favourite downwards. (eg #1 down to #100)

- Your #1 gets 100 points, #2 gets 99 points etc

- The weekly PJOPS Retrochart is compiled from accumulated points each week.

- It would be fantastic if you could regularly contribute lists but understandably there may be weeks you can not. If someone fails to contribute towards a weekly chart their previous week’s choices will be frozen and contribute to the chart but the points will be halved. This is to prevent wild fluctuations in chart positions depending on contributions.

Lifeline Spandau Ballet 36,000

They may have seen their sales sip 14% but it's still a easy victory for Musical Youth with "Pass The Dutchie" selling 158,000 copies in the last 7 days. The boys are of course limited by law as to how much work they can undertake given their age but they have managed 497,000 buyers in the last month and should climb into the YTD top 10 next week illustrating just how much the track has taken off.

That isn't to say that they had all their own way this week as Culture Club move 3-2 (119,000) and eat into the boys lead at the top setting up a tight battle next week! Fat Larry's Band are the victim in the squabble as they drop 2-3 though they have their best week yet at 94,000.

Kids From Fame are still on the scene, on the album charts they have a new entry at No 38 with their second album "Again" whilst "Kids From Fame" is in the top 2 for a twelfth week on the trot and is now the second biggest album of the year behind Barbra Streisand. Meanwhile the second single "Starmaker" bounds 14-4 (88,000) this week outstripping their previous release "Hi Fidelity" the latter track sold 287,000 so far and is just about to exit the charts.

Arriving 28-10 (36,000) is the first release by Spandau Ballet from their third as yet untitled album which Is due in early 1983. "Lifeline" is the first product of the groups work with Jolley & Swain (producers of the moment) and becomes their fifth top 10 single of their career.

Dropping down the charts this week are Chicago 4-5 (87,000), Dexy's Midnight Runners slip 5-6 (60,000), whilst Shalamar dive 6-9 (38,000) whilst Evelyn King and Mari Wilson hold at No's 7 & 8 on sales of 49,000 and 43,000.

Shalamar secure a surprise second chart topper after a couple of weeks denial by Cliff Richard. It's the first from current album Friends which boasts three top three hits now and has topped the album chart for 6 weeks so far. The single has spent most of its chart run in the top five: 14-5-3-3-2-2-1

Culture Club and The Clash continue to rise and may be in for a tussle for the top next week.

Billy Joel has had a string of top ten retrochart hits including two chart toppers. He is looking for a third as the lead single from his current album crashes into the top ten 11-5 this week. Tight Fit similarly are looking for a third chart topper as their latest moves 18-9.
