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.

A change of guard at the top this week as Michael Jackson claims his first solo No 1 single in the UK, "One Day In Your Life" did it the hard way though struggling to fend off the outgoing chart topper "Being With You" all week and eventually triumphing by just over 2,000 copies. The Jackson track sold 115,000 copies last week, not a stellar total but it has already attracted 363,000 buyers, a case of slow and steady wins the day. Smokey Robinson can't be too disappointed with the result as "Being With You" has now sold 487,000 copies and should book its place in the top 10 singles of the year, we'll be recapping the first 6 months of 1981 next week.

becoming their sixth straight Top 10 hit "Ghost Town" jets 21-6 (60,000) this week for the troubled Specials. You may recall their tour late last year was accompanied by reports of violence in the crowd and rancour within the band, but something came from the experience, namely this track which is a response to events the band witnessed on the tour. It has been proclaimed by the music press as a soundtrack to the unrest in Brixton back in April of this year and the growing unemployment in the country.

Though she made her west end debut back in 1968 Elaine Paige has only really entered the public consciousness after her starring role in "Evita" three years ago and is now starring in a new musical "Cats" which is another success. From that musical "Memory" has become her first top 40 hit as It climbs 15-9 (44,000).

Outside of those mentioned there are two climbers within the top 10, Odyssey move a notch 6-5 (63,000) and Ultravox jump 1 place too 9-8 (44,000), there's also two non movers Kate Robbins at No 3 (64,000) and Red Sovine at No 4 (64,000) as well as two fallers Champaign 5-7 (59,000) and Hazel O'Connor 8-10 (36,000)
