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.

12/06/1982 Goody Two Shoes - Adam Ant

Adam Ant continues his sprint to the top of the charts this week with the wonderful Goody Two Shoes, displacing Diana Ross after only a week. Kid Creole & Duran Duran finally hit the top 5 and Genesis, Foreigner and Natasha join them in the top 10. Several big climbers this week, with Stevie Wonder, Bow Wow Wow and The Belle Stars all leaping 15 places. Monsoon jump up a respectable 13 spots too. Joining them all in this weeks chart are Odyssey and Shalamar with a pair of classic singles, no doubt destined for the upper end of the chart in the coming weeks. Whilst a bit further down, Queen already have a new entry even though they're still in the top 3! Status Quo, Elton John and Adrian Gurvitz also debut, each with a song I personally prefer to their previous efforts. Carrying on with the Natasha trivia, I mentioned last week how Stiff may have been a bit, ahem, underhanded, in the race to the charts with Iko Iko. By way of payback, Natasha and her label learnt that The Belle Stars were recording The Clapping Song for release. Natasha orchestrated a ruse that she had also recorded it, with a white label strategically placed in view of a Stiff Record exec at a radio station, and the message passed to them that Natasha's version would be out within the next 3 weeks. Naturally, Stiff had kittens about this and rush released The Belle Stars version ASAP so as not to be caught out again. Of course Natasha never recorded The Clapping Song (although she was sent it by the publisher), but did work with its producer, Peter Collins, first. She was the lead singer of The Flirts, singing the song He's The Kind Of Boy You Can't Forget, back in 1979. Natasha canned a great Iko pastiche called The Beat Goes, which can be heard on her anthology Back From The Mists Of Time. A potential follow-up was also penned for her by Philip Jap, in the '82 charts with Save Us. The song, Tarzan, was never finished beyond a backing track however.
 
@BattlebornAl - re: Natasha....I assumed I had her version of Iko Iko on a compilation, but upon checking, I only have multiple copies of the Belle Stars one. Natasha's seems to be almost impossible to find on CD, but I see there's a 26-track digital album/compilation called "Captured [Deluxe Edition]". Apologies if you've already covered this before on an earlier Retrochart thread (I have a feeling you did!), but is the sound quality of this download album any good, and are they all original recordings? I don't mind getting it, if so.

I put that together! The main album is off the original master and mastered at SRT in St Ives. Very expensive it was too! They're all original recordings. Bonus tracks vary depending on the condition of the tape and a couple I had to remix from multitrack, like It's Alright, Maybe and Tonight, to avoid vinyl transfers where possible.

The CD single of Iko is on Discogs I think as is the Anthology.

Thanks! I'll check again on Discogs, I may have missed something there.
