THE RETROCHART
We are taking a trip down memory lane

The Retrochart Vault

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.

18 10 05 Beatles Movie Medley The Beatles 35,000

Another slice of chart history is made today as former "Damned" guitarist Raymond Burns (Better known as "Captain Sensible") leaps 33-1 with his version of "Happy Talk", originally a song from the musical "South Pacific". That's the biggest jump to the top spot in chart history and can thank in part a low sales climate for performing the miraculous feat as the song sold just 77,000 copies, not spectacular however that is a marked (24%) increase on the performance of Charlene last week. Captain Sensible is joined by the Dolly Mixtures on backing vocals who have had a lot radio 1 support thanks to John Peel but this is their first slice of chart fame.

"I've Never Been To Me" drops 1-2 this week and sells a further 59,000 copies into the bargain as it lifts its overall haul of 271,000 copies. That's well off what's required to make the YTD top 10 which as we are halfway through 1982 looks like this:

1- THE LION SLEEPS TONIGHT- Tight Fit 952,000
2- SEVEN TEARS- Goombay Dance Band 726,000
3- EBONY AND IVORY- Paul McCartney & Stevie Wonder 698,000
4- TOWN CALLED MALICE/ PRECIOUS- The Jam 672,000
5- GOLDEN BROWN- The Stranglers 627,000
6- MICKEY- Toni Basil 547,000
7- LOVE PLUS ONE- Haircut 100 544,000
8- COMPUTER LOVE/ THE MODEL- Kraftwerk 533,000
9- OH JULIE- Shakin Stevens 523,000
10- ONLY YOU- Yazoo 476,000

Three new hits to cover this week, first up are the Steve Miller Band who's only previous UK hit was "Rock N Me" which peaked at No 11 back in 1976. Six years down the line the band return with "Abracadabra" which jumps 12-4 (54,000) to easily score the biggest hit of their career to date.

Not quite the climber that Captain Sensible experienced this week, but then not far off for Imagination whose "Music and Lights" rocket 31-5 (46,000) and is the band's third top 10 single and follow up to the No 2 single "Just An Illusion". September sees the release of a second album for the trio and will be produced by Jolly & Swain who are now much in demand among chart acts.

Thought the medley craze was over? Not quite- after holding off for a year Parlophone finally assented to the release of a Beatles Medley of music from their various films and this week sees the return of the fab 4 to the top 10 for the first time since 1976 and is their 24th visit to the upper reaches. The song heads up 18-10 (35,000) this week.

On to the climbers this week which include Odyssey (7-3, 55,000),and Diana Ross 8-7 (41,000), and three fallers. Kid Creole & The Coconuts (4-6, 41,000), Duran Duran 5-8 , 39,000, and Adam Ant who trails off 2-9 (38,000).

So I did some housekeeping and tried to source all the international charts.

The only country I couldn't find any singles charts from 1982 was France (and Australia pre mid 1983 - I'm having to rely on the Billboard Magazines of the time). All I've found is a website with an airplay chart but I'm not even sure it's official?

If anyone spots any unofficial charts I'm using or even better has link to official chart archives please do let me know!
