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.

- This week is w/e 05 September 1981. You can chart anything released prior to 29 August 1981.

- The deadline is 23:59 on Thursday 31 August.

Well as predicted last week both Aneka and Soft Cell both had TOTP exposure and both benefitted but the winner was never in doubt even before Thursday came around with Soft Cell's "Tainted Love" exploding 169% to sell 204,000 copies last week, the biggest 7 day tally since last Christmas. The song has now sold 353,000 copies since release and could top the half million mark as early as next week. All of which excitement leaves poor Aneka stuck at No 2 with "Japanese Boy" which is shunted from the top spot after just a week despite a 41% sales hike to 109,000. Both are almost 50,000 clear of the rest of the field.

Heralding a new album and a new sound Numan does Jazz! Gary is back with "She's Got Claws" which rises 15-6 (52,000). The singer recently announced his intention to retire from touring so the album may suffer in the long term but it is released this week, and the lead single becomes his 5th top 10 hit single making up for the disappointment of "This Wreckage" which could only make No 20 in January this year.

Also gearing up for an album release, Genesis are back this month with "Abacab" the single and album. The single moves 12-9 (44,000) to become only their third top 10 single to date and is named after the songwriting process where the band labelled parts of the song A-B-C etc and this stuck.

Elsewhere it's a strange old week with Human League bounding 6-3 despite losing sales to 61,000, similarly ELO rise 5-4 but lose 14,000 sales wise over the last 7 days to sell 60,000. Also falling are Royal Philharmonic orchestra 3-5 (54,000), Shakin Stevens 4-8 (48,000) and Lobo 8-10 (43,000). UB40 buck the trend however as "One In Ten" jumps 10-7 (49,000) with a marginal increase.
