Popjustice Retrochart - OCTOBER 1982 - w/e 23/10/82

THE RETROCHART
We are taking a trip down memory lane

<< 16/10/82 | Retrochart Vault | 30/10/82 >>

top100_lit_main_0413.png


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.

A right ding dong battle at the top of the charts this week with Musical Youth and Culture Club neck and neck in the early part of the week but as it progressed Boy George and his crew pulled clear to become the 18th No 1 single of 1982 with "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me". The track sold 140,000 copies vs "Pass The Dutchie"'s 117,000 but its the latter track who has sold more cumulatively 614,000 against 374,000 expect that to be challenged in forthcoming weeks, Culture Club's debut album "Kissing To Be Clever" leaps 12-8 on the album charts in its second week which doesn't seem to be sapping too many sales from the single, at present anyway!

Buoyed by the success of the "Beatles Movie Medley" EMI has decided to re-release the original "Love Me Do" as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations of the fab four, "Love Me Do" was of course the first Beatles hit back in 1962 when It made No 17, it's been rather more successful this time around as the song debuted at No 14 last week and this weeks travels 14-5 (66,000) and marks the first time the Beatles have been in the top 5 for 12 years, indeed since their farewell UK single "Let It Be", an album "20 Greatest Hits" is released this week.

Hailing from Basildon, The Pinkees are the latest new arrivals in the top 10 as "Danger Games" climb 27-8 (48,000). It's their second release after "Gonna Be Lonely Again" failed to trouble the charts earlier this year but they finally have their breakthrough.

It doesn't seem as though Kid Creole and his coconuts can be stopped in 1982 as they score their third top 10 single of the year with "Annie I'm Not Your Daddy". The album "Tropical Gangsters" returns to the top 20 this week and can be authentically called one of the albums of the year, home as it is, to all three singles, the current track leaps 15-9 (40,000).

Kids From Fame now have their biggest hit single on their hands as "Starmaker" glides 4-3 (81,000) but actually loses sales and is joined by Spandau Ballet who climb 10-7 (57,000). Falling this week are Fat Larry's Band 3-4 (73,000), Chicago 5-6 (65,000) and Dexy's Midnight Runners 6-10 (37,000).

The HMV Retrochart is locked and ready for uploading. But first, the makers and shakers - are these songs in your Retrochart yet?

Number 49 - new entry for the current USA Number One - it's crossed over to the HMV Retrochart:
John Cougar Mellencamp - Jack and Diane
 
Last edited:
Number 43 - new entry for Diana Ross and a song which Michael Jackson wrote (is that him in the background?) here comes "Muscles":
 
Speaking of songs written by one artist for another:
Number 42 - new entry for Dionne Warwick and a song the Bee Gees wrote called "Heartbreaker" (just sheer class - both song and her appearance in this video!)
 
Number 39 - new entry - we welcome back Orange Juice with the excellent - just like The Four Tops..."I can't help myself"
"Nothing worth finding is easily found, try as one might"
