Was the UK singles chart sales only?

UK singles chart was always physical sales only until 2006 when download sales were added. Initially a song had to be available physically for the downloads to count. Later downloads alone could count (which meant some older songs started recharting and made the chart slightly more interesting for a few months). It remained sales only (physical+download) until streaming was added in the last year or two - can't remember when exactly as I'd long since given up on the "singles" chart.

Radio airplay has never been a factor in the UK chart like it has been for Billboard.

A very special chart week for me - as I was about to celebrate my 12th birthday on Sunday 6th September 1981 - a hot late summer's day in West London and BBC Radio One's UK TOP 40 chart show with Tony Blackburn was my birthday "playlist"!

So before I reveal my HMV Retrochart - here's the makers and shakers:

There are two songs on my Retrochart called "Happy Birthday" (to me!) and at number 50 is one of them - a new entry for Altered Images:
 
Number 44 - new entry for a song that's currently a big hit all over Europe and now it's crossed over into the HMV Retrochart: Ottawan - Hands up, gimme your heart:
 
This week's highest new entry comes from one of the UK's hottest Record labels (Virgin Records) who are really championing the next generation of pop stars: Single number three from Heaven 17 and this one's called "Play to win":

Ultravox race into the top ten at number six with "The Thin Wall":


The Human League get three weeks at number one as the single is flipped to reveal "Hard Times":


Chartfile:
The Human League make it three weeks at the top and the single “Love Action/I believe in love” has been flipped so “Hard Times” that was getting a lot of cub play also gets billing now. They got stiff competition next week as Simple Minds, Soft Cell, Gary Numan and Ultravox are all climbing strongly inside the top ten. Other climbers are ELO and Genesis. UB40 are stuck at number seven. Heading south are Talking Heads and David Byrne/Brian Eno. The top six in particular are receiving a lot of cub play – it’s a very strong HMV Chart at the moment.
The longest runner on the chart with 13 weeks is Depeche Mode’s “New life”

Next week could see new entries from:
Adam and the Ants, Diana Ross/Lionel Richie, Sheena Easton, Godley & Crème, The Pretenders and The Tubes - stay tuned!

15,000 HIGHCLIMBER

More upheaval in the top ten this week as @Rooneyboy favourite Dollar storm into the top ten with their first top five hit, only marginally outpaced by the current US chart topper from Diana Ross & Lionel Richie. It's Diana's fifth top ten hit but her highest peaking single since last year's chart topper Upside Down. It's the first time in the top ten for Lionel Richie though.

Evelyn King continues a steady climb depriving Foreigner of any further progress this week.

Also new to the top ten are high climbers from Teena Marie, her second top ten hit this year, and Cliff Richard who continues his string of top ten solo hits, can it go one better than recent #2 Give A Little Bit More?
