  1. 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.

    It's been a steady climb for Chas and Dave - after 6 weeks "Ain't no pleasing you" enters the top ten at Number six:


    Well done to Bucks Fizz - they get their second Number One single as "My camera never lies" climbs to Number One this week:


    Cubfile:
    Congratulations to Bucks Fizz who achieve their second Number One in under a year this week as “My camera never lies” knocks off Dollar’s “Give me back my heart” from the summit. It’s the first time since February’s The Jam’s “A town called malice” that the HMV Number One matches the UK Mainstream Number One! Japan, Roxy Music, Chas and Dave, Altered Images and Classix Nouveaux are all climbing inside the top ten. Heading down are Imagination, Visage and The Associates.
    The highest new entry this week is at Number 32 for The Beat with a very mature pop sounding single called “Save it for later” – great stuff!
    There are two singles that have been in the HMV Retrochart for 14 weeks now – The Men’s “I don’t depend on you” (really The Human League Mark I) which falls to Number 25 and The Thompson Twins “In the name of love” which tumbles to Number 30 this week

    Next Week could see new entries from:
    Junior, The Stranglers, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Shakin’ Stevens, Patrice Rushen and Patrick Cowley – stay tuned!
