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.

For artists who have between them sold millions of singles and had 26 top 10 hits it may come as a surprise to note that prior to “Under Pressure” Bowie and Queen had only had three chart toppers to their joint credit. They add to that tally today with the aforementioned song which leapfrogs 8-1 (95,000), both acts are busy touring at present which explains why there is no appearance from the acts themselves in the promo. Queen hold at the top of the album charts holding off Adam & The Ants much to the surprise of many insiders who thought that those ants couldn’t be stopped this year.

The entire rest of the top 10 are incredibly close packed with just 16,000 copies separating No’s 2 and 10, The police clock in at No 2 as they drop off the top but sell just 67,000, a big reduction from last week which bucks the general trend of new No 1 singles which sell well off the back of the associated press, perhaps with Christmas fast approaching their album seems a better present?

Two new hits this week for tracks which are already big sellers stateside. First up is Olivia Newton-John who isn’t a star used to courting controversy but “Physical” is getting some commentators in the US hot under the collar thanks to some of the lyrics and a rather risqué ending to the promo video. It is certainly a more sexual image than many are used to but it seems to have paid off as the song is now No 1 in the US and climbs 11-7 (54,000) here to become her first top 10 single since she made No 1 last year with “Xanadu”. Rumour has it that it was offered to Rod Stewart who turned it down, he must be regretting it now as his own “Tonight I’m Yours” does climb 10-8 (54,000) but is not below Newton-John.

After a pretty amazing 1979 which saw Earth Wind & Fire score three top 10 hits the band had a less than impressive 1980 releasing 4 singles none of which got higher than No 29. They’re back with a new album and find themselves back in the top flight as “Let’s Groove” rushes 20-9 (53,000) proving that there is still some room in the market for some old fashioned disco!

A couple of fallers this week, Four Tops drop 3-6 (55,000), and Squeeze take a big tumble 4-10 (51,000) whilst OMD hold steady at No 5 (61,000). Two climbers as well- Julio Iglesias edges nearer the top 7-3 (66,000) and Haircut 100 make a more impressive move 9-4 (66,000) and could make a challenge to the top next week.

Any idea why Land Of Make Believe didn't make Top 75 straight away on release? I know the last 2 singles had diminishing success and in those days there were no guarantees but still seems odd it entered in 75-100 region.
 
While Juice Newton was around in the 70's she never really had much success until 1981, Angel Of the Morning, & Queen Of Hearts, and now Sweetest Thing (I've ever known) is soaring up 17 spots to #30
