Madness come straight in at Number 4 this week with single Number 12 "House of Fun" - about purchasing a packet of condoms at the local Chemist (condoning "safe" sex!):


Yazoo. make it two weeks at the top with "Only You":


Cubfile:
Yazoo make it two weeks at the summit with “Only you” but the competition is really hotting up behind them as The Beat move from 8 to 6 to 4 and now this week they’re at Number 2 with “Save it for later”
A Flock of Seagulls have been on the chart for 9 weeks but they’re still climbing as “I Ran” moves up to Number 5. Can Abba “The Visitors” make it to the top – they’re up to Number 7 this week. Bad Manners are back in the top ten this week as the excellent “Got no brains” climbs from 13 to 8.
Two big new entries into the top ten this week – Adam Ant has got rid of his Ants and gone solo with “Goody Two shoes” at Number 9, whereas Madness have the highest new entry this week with “House of Fun” smashing in at Number 4 – featured on their Greatest Hits album “Complete Madness”
Heading down the top ten are Elton John, Spandau Ballet and Simple Minds.

The longest runner in the HMV Retrochart has been there for 19 weeks now – The Men’s “I don’t depend on you” (really The Human League Mark I) which falls to Number 43 this week

Next Week could see new entries from:
Soft Cell, Echo and the Bunnymen, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Diana Ross and XTC – stay tuned!

THE EG RETROCHART TOP 40: Week Ending 22nd May 1982

22_05_82a.jpg

22_05_82b.jpg


EG's Chartdust: Junior spends a 2nd week at #1, but is already under threat from a host of high entries and big climbers. The new Adam Ant single, his first solo effort, storms in at #2, while ABC look to be a in a hurry to emulate the chart-topping Poison Arrow as they move 23-4. Madness put the disappointment of recent underperforming hits behind them, and are enjoying themselves again with a new entry at #10. Just outside the Top 10, a 16-place leap for Duran Duran suggests they also have an appetite for regaining lost ground following My Own Way's relative failure.
 
Hehe yes I'm having a Fantastic Day on a Fantasy Island, for Private Eyes only.

Having A Celebration with My Guy.

The retrochart is Always On My Mind though. So my chart for this week will come later.

I Won't Let You Down and will be catching up with everything else next week I won't be Working For The Weekend though.

Back to UK next weekend. Ferries are a bit unreliable though so hope it's not SIx Months In A Leaky Boat.

16 10 05 Forget Me Nots | Patrice Rushen 30,000


A huge three way tussle at the top this week sees a record top three all reaching 100,000. Unfortunately, it means Nicole misses out on a chart topper despite overhauling a significant lead by Bardo as Yazoo just beat them to the finish. Elsewhere, Patrice Rushen grabs a second top ten hit as Tight Fit, Depeche Mode and Candi Staton continue to gain.
