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.

14 10 04 The Only Way Out Cliff Richard 32,000
"Fame" loses its hold on both charts this week, well kind of. On the album charts the soundtrack to the 1980 film falls 1-3 but is replaced by "Kids From Fame" from the current TV show which must please the franchise owners to the series as the money continues to roll in, the first single from the TV cast is released this week called "Hi Fidelity" we'll see if it can replicate the album's success over the next few weeks. On the singles chart Irene Cara's time is up with "Fame" fading 1-2 but on a bumper sale of 159,000 copies the second highest sale of 1982 for a No 2 track behind "Golden Brown" back in February which shifted 177,000 copies (as noted last week this week saw 2 Saturday's of sales so isn't directly comparable), the song has now sold 643,000 copies and moves 12-4 on the YTD list.

Cara is replaced at the top by Dexy's Midnight Runners and the Emerald Express with "Come On Eileen" which saw a 113% sales increase two weeks ago and this week jumps by an incredible 110% as it really ignites at retail to sell a whopping 191,000 copies with every indication that sales will increase again next week! The track is already on a cumulative total of 346,000 easily in the top 40 of the year after just 6 weeks, their previous best seller is of course "Geno" on sales of 683,000, it also doesn't appear to be suffering for also appearing on the group's album "Too Rye Ay" which debuts at No 2 this week behind "Kids From Fame".

Their latest album "Tropical Gangsters" is currently sitting at No 6 on the album chart having so far peaked at No 4 and is now home to two top 10 hits as "Stool Pigeon" propels itself 11-8 (37,000) and has a little way to go to match the No 4 peak of their last single "I'm A Wonderful Thing (Baby)".

His 22nd studio album is due later this month entitled "Now You See Me, Now You Don't" and to herald it Cliff Richard is back in the top 10 for the 47th time since his first hit 24 years ago. "The Only Way Out" climbs 14-10 (32,000) this week and is co-produced by the man himself!

One other climber within the top 10 this week, Hot Chocolate leap 7-5 (51,000) but Trio (5-6, 42,000), and Bananarama (6-7, 39,000) head in the opposite direction. unusually there are also three non movers, Japan at No 9 (36,000) Madness at No 4 (57,000) and Yazoo at No 3 who had a TOTP appearance and see their sales swell 46% to 96,000, which four weeks ago would have given them the No 1 spot but this week is way short of the mark!

Dexy's Midnight Runners pull off a surprise chart topper puling away from the pack. Their only previous significant retrochart hit was the top twenty hit Geno two years ago! Donna Summer continues to gain and rebounds 5-2 as a result with Cliff Richard also climbing again 4-3 all at the expense of Yazoo who are displaced 1-4.

Lower down the ten there is a large gap to make up by our newest top ten hits, first timers Survivor move 11-7 and Psychadelic Furs storm 28-10. Tight Fit have a third top ten hit with Secret Heart moving 21-9. Can they make it a third chart topper?
