10 10 08 The Sun Goes Down (Living It Up) Level 42 24,000
The UK is dropping its consumption but there is no doubt that "Red Red Wine" is still popular at the counter with a further 120,000 copies moved bringing its total to an impressive 422,000 copies and will undoubtedly ease over the half million mark next week though the release of "Labour Of Love" may dampen the singles appeal as it is released this week. It also passes "King/ Food For Thought" as the group's biggest seller, that sold 372,000 back in 1980.

Culture Club have been busy cracking the US for most of 1983 where they scored a couple of No 2 hits ("Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" and "Time (Clock Of The Heart)" and only just leave the top 10 over there with "I'll Tumble 4 Ya", but its back to the place where it all started good ol Blighty for the band who are good to go with their second album "Colour By Numbers" which is due next month. Lead single "Karma Chameleon" becomes their most instant hit debuting at No 3 today (91,000) but couldn't quite keep the No 2 position it was holding for most of the week thanks to TOTP which helped Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack to climb 7-2 (98,000) to become the biggest hit of either of their careers. Next week looks like being a scramble between the 3 tracks which all sold in very healthy tallies for 1983, indeed Culture Club's tally would have been enough for a No 1 debut in 15 weeks of the year!

Pierluigi Giombini has had a busy 1983, you might not know the name but if you've been lucky enough to go to Europe during the summer then you'll already be familiar with at least two of his compositions a track called "I like Chopin" by Gazebo, and Ryan Paris' "Dolce Vita" the latter of which successfully crosses the Dover straits to our shores and climbs 21- 5 (53,000). The Gazebo track has been top 10 alrady in almost every continental Europe country with Paris not far behind including a No 1 turn in Holland, Spain and Belgium. Both Paris and Gazebo are of course stage names (real names Fabio Roscioli and Paul Mazzolini respectively) and are big names on the Italian Disco scene. and to further the connection Mazzolini co-writes "Dolce Vita" with Giombini. Whilst "I Like Chopin" has failed to impress consumers here, Ryan Paris produces the first Italian penned top 10 UK hit since Gloria Branigan's cover of Umberto Tozzi's "Gloria" last year.

Recorded by its writer Jack Lee in 1981 "Come Back And Stay" bombed in the UK charts but canny Paul Young knew a hit when he saw it and covered it for the "No Parlez" album and this week crowns his fantastic year as the single climbs 27-6 (36,000) whilst "No Parlez" finally reaches the No 1 spot and isn't selling in bad quantities either spending the last two months in the top 10.

Elsewhere Genesis continue to move up the charts 5-4 (84,000) with "Mama" which is already shaping up to be their best selling single in the next few weeks whilst both Modern Talking and Level 42 hold steady at numbers 9 and 10 on sales of 26,000 and 24,000. Two big fallers in the shape of Rod Stewart 3-7 (29,000) and Madness 2-8 (27,000) as their time is very firmly up.

Billy Joel looks safe at the top still - aiming for a month long stay next week, while Spandau Ballet are runners up for a fourth week in a row. Paul Young may challenge the top next week as he vaults 20-3 into the top ten this week and is joined by Cliff Richard who moves 11-6 for yet another top ten hit.

It's a good week for groups as UB40 and Divinyls make headway moving 7-4 and 10-7 respectively and Cultue Club return with a bang at #9 becoming only the third new entry straight into the top ten this year, following previous British groups Duran Duran who entered at #9 in March with Is There Something I Should Know and Eurythmics who entered at #10 in July with Who's That Girl.
