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.

Roxy Music replace Madness at the top of the album charts but "House Of Fun" continues to dominate the singles survey after selling a respectable 101,000 copies and can now boast an impressive 3 week total of 241,000. The success of the album may be detracting sales from the single which helps to explain how it can quite shake of "Goody Two Shoes" by Adam Ant, that holds at No 2 but on an improved sale of 97,000 even without TOTP and overall is just 3,000 copies behind "House Of Fun" in terms of cumulative sales. It may not be all over for Adam after all.

It's time for Top 5 single No 4 from Soft Cell which may well have some say in the continued battle between Maness and Adam Ant. The band are releasing a remix album this month "Non Stop Ecstatic Dancing" later this month but don't be expecting to find "Torch" on it, the band have made the decision to exclude it and issue this as a standalone single. The song is essentially an uncredited duet between Almond and Cindy Ecstacy and does the trick for them commercially as it rockets 16-3 (69,000) in its second week- next weeks No 1?

Duran Duran are a band who probably got more press than record sales in 1981 despite the top 10 single "Girls On Film". In part this was due to a rather risqué video directed by Godley & Crème and also the photogenic appeal of the band, now they can back it up with another top 10 hit in "Hungry Like The Wolf" which leaps 12-8 (48,000) and is the lead single to second album "Rio" which has already made No 2 where it stuck behind Madness. It comes with another glamorous video this time set in Sri Lanka and having a "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" feel to it which should only encourage further magazine covers for the group.

Two other climbers this week, ABC rise a spot 6-5 (63,000) to become their highest peaking track, and Junior is on the move 9-7 (49,000) with only a minimal sales increase. Moving in the wrong direction are Yazoo 3-4 (65,000), Tight Fit 5-6 (51,000) Ph.D 7-9 (48,000) and the quickly depleting Nicole 4-10 (43,000).

COMMENTARY COMMENTARY:
So we arrive at the summer of 1982, the absolute pinnacle of the year, and quite possibly the entire 80s, with wave after wave of classic singles hitting the charts. Diana Ross storms to number one this week on only her second week on the chart with her keep-fit anthem, Work That Body, which was recorded before Olivia's Physical incidently so it's not a case of copy-catting. Adam Ant continues steady progress upward and ABC score their second top ten hit with The Look Of Love, but it's running out of steam. Highest climber is courtesy of a Soft Cell, up to #16, with Torch. Stevie Wonder and Monsoon have new entries. Monsoon with a little known song that becomes very engaging with repeated listens, and Bow Wow Wow arrive just inside the top 40 with a classic, I Want Candy. Highest new entry is courtesy of Dame Natasha, one of the UK's overlooked talents, with a phenomenal voice and song, Iko Iko. Check out her album cuts for the proof and her new album, due this year, where she's reunited with Iko Iko producer Tom Newman. The Belle Stars rival version debuts at #35, so not much competition on my chart. Back in Sping of '82, Stiff Records got wind of the fact Natasha had recorded the song, and asked for a white label. This was couriered over. Stiff execs then compared it to four different mixes of the Belle Stars version (all similar and the released one was best). They determined there wasn't much contest as Natasha's was more chart friendly and advised they weren't going with the release. But they did! So the race was on. Natasha had some setbacks at the pressing plant, with TWO of her stampers "mysteriously" being destroyed (Stiff used the same plant). This is unheard of. Regardless both came out the same week and in the UK, Natasha easily won the battle, taking Iko into the top 10 in four countries that year. She remains the only person to take a version of this often covered song into the UK top 10. Next week - Natasha's revenge!
