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.

Smokey reigns supreme this week with an easy victory for "Being With You" which shifted 129,000 copies last week, meaning that whilst Michael Jackson moves into second place his sales increase of 12% to 99,000 is way short of the mark, perhaps a further TOTP boost this week could create a tighter race this week?

Long a Country and Western star in the US Red Sovine released his track "Teddy Bear" back in 1976 in the states where it topped the Country charts, but it has taken 5 years to make it across the pond to finally hit it big here. Sadly it's too late for Sovine who died last year but the track entered last week at No 22 and soars to No 4 this week on a sale of 71,000, it's a tale of a disabled boy who speaks to truckers as his only friends, they all converge on his home to take him out for a spin- an odd tale all in all.

After the dud of "Slow Motion" (No 33) Ultravox prove there is more to them than just "Vienna" as "All Stood Still" becomes a second top 10 for them. It should be noted of course that "Slow Motion" was actually a single from 1978 which was released as a cash in after "Vienna" hit it big so fans, if not the chart books, will state this is the real follow up, it's also the fourth single to be plucked from the album named after their biggest hit.

After last weeks sales extravaganza sales are generally down, of the songs in the top 10 last week only Robinson, Jackson and Odyssey record increases, "Going Back To My Roots" climbs 8-6 but increases by just 6% to 59,000. So it is that although Champaign (66,000) and Hazel O'Connor (51,000) climb, 6-5 and 9-8 both lose sales 7% and 5% respectively, Kate Robbins can't complain however as without the promotional oxygen of "Crossroads" her song slips 2-3 (72,000) and two much older songs continue to drop, Adam & The Ants 5-7 (54,000) and Shaky dips 7-10 (45,000)
