    All five of Bucks Fizz's releases have gone top 20 since their debut but none has come close to beating the #5 peak of their debut single. It's difficult to see how this can progress much further though, as it is already top two in four of our charts.

    Altered Images match the peak of previous single I Could Be Happy but have their sights set on repeating the success of their debut Happy Birthday which spent a month in the top 3.

  9. Great fun watching this unfold. Dollar were robbed. ROBBED I tell you!!!!

    If it's any consolation they're sort of #1 as the Graham Broad drums on Poison Arrow were lifted from a Dollar session because he couldn't make the recording!

  10. Chartfile w/e 10th April 1982:
    ABC make it four weeks at the summit with "Poison Arrow" but climbing up behind them are Roxy Music, Dollar, Altered Images, Visage, Bucks Fizz, Elton John and Imagination - that's 7 climbers inside the top ten. Gary Numan and The Jam head south. There's some great records just outside the top ten - watch out for A Flock of Seagulls, Simple Minds, Japan, Bananarama & Fun Boy Three and Haircut 100 as they all could make the top ten soon - stay tuned!

  11. I was always surprised that Damned Don't Cry didn't make the UK top 10 being a lead single. I was even more surprised that he didn't perform it on the Here And Now tour, singing the minor hit Pleasure Boys instead. I was probably the only person in the arena who had the single.

  12. "Pleasure Boys" will be a Retrochart hit for me this November - celebrating the infamous "The Anvil" nightclub in NYC!
     
  13. For me it's Night Train. That's in my all time top 10 songs.

    Midge Ure HATED the single remix.

  14. "Visage" the single remix is my fave Visage moment - it was Number one on my Retrochart last Summer (August 1981)!
