Chartfile w/e 12th December 1981:

This week we welcome @Heaven on Earth to the Retrochart club - feel free to post your chart on the thread itself. Part of the fun is seeing what songs everyone else loves/hates ("Physical" is nowhere near my Retrochart!)

Another record breaking week as Queen/David Bowie score the highest ever weekly tally of points. "Under Pressure" makes it a hatrick at the top this week. All the top four have the highest ever weekly score. We now have 8 PJ'ers submitting their Retrocharts - can we get even more to join for 1982?
Earth Wind and Fire are stuck at Number two! Climbing inside the top ten are The Human League and Madness. Meanwhile the highest new entry this week is at Number 6 for Abba and "One of us" - heading down slowly are The Police, Kim Wilde, Olivia Newton John, The Pretenders and Soft Cell.

Bucks Fizz tumble out of the top ten and Dollar @Rooneyboy are also slipping slightly this week - can they both rebound next week? Stay tuned!
 
EG's WEEKLY TOP 40 RETROCHART: Week Ending 12th December 1981

Christmas is approaching, and the big guns come out to play; joining Ant Rap among the debutants are new singles by ABBA, Rod Stewart, The Police (again, their third release in under three months!) and...um...Brown Sauce. The latter is the brainchild of Swap Shop's Noel Edmonds and also features Maggie Philbin and Keith Chegwin ; a power trio to strike fear into the hearts of the competition.

With weird timing, the very afternoon I begin a google search to try and find the Brown Sauce track in some useable form, Keith Chegwin dies.

So sad. 60's no age! Another part of our childhood gone.
