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.

14 10 07 Attention To Me Nolans 36,000

With thoughts of Eurovision fading fast so Bucks Fizz's sales do, they manage to hold the No 1 spot on a reduced tally of 128,000, but it was still an easy victory as Ennio Morricone rises 4-2 but on a sale of 88,000, however next week could easily see a change of guard at the top

The only new entry to the top 10 are the Nolans which has become a third top 10 hit and keeps their record of making the big 10 with alternating releases intact. "Attention To Me" climbs 14-10 (36,000), it's the fourth release from the "Making Waves" album which is by far their biggest seller and the group are now hitmakers in the Australia and Japan which is turning into their biggest market.

Climbers in the top 10 this week include Sugar Minott 7-4 (63,000) and the Jacksons 8-7 (46,000) despite receding sales, whilst The Whispers hold at No 9 (40,000). Four songs go down however Shakin Stevens 2-3 (66,000) but he's now got the third biggest selling single of the year, Stevie Wonder moves 3-5 ( 48,000), Landscape drop 5-6 (46,000) and Graham Bonnet falls 6-8 (42,000)
