THE RETROCHART
We are taking a trip down memory lane

The Retrochart Vault

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.

18 10 08 Arthur's Theme Christopher Cross 28,000
Another week of doldrum sales and erratic moves coupled with music label objections sees BMRB announce it’s to reverse its decision of last month and will be going back to the status quo re a chart week of Monday- Saturday from the Chart dated 20th February. Its current set up probably cost Kraftwerk a No 1 this week with “The Model/ Computer Love” which did appear on this weeks TOTP but falls 2-3 (48,000) but should perversely see an increase in sales next week. None of that saves Bucks Fizz who drop 1-2 (52,000) and were never in contention for retaining the crown which instead passes to Shakin Stevens, Attaining his third No 1 single in the space of just 10 months it seems everything he touches at present has top 10 written on it and this time he is finally making some serious money himself having written it himself. With the TOTP working the way it does however it should be Kraftwerk and Bucks Fizz who get the boost next week- interesting times, “Oh Julie” sold a poor 74,000 this week.

Punk survivors The Stranglers have been absent from the top 10 since 1977 but this week “Golden Brown” jumps 16-4 (46,000) which has been oddly championed by Radio 2 of all radio stations! There are a few theories currently doing the rounds as to the meaning of the song but a spot of mild controversy never harmed sales and this is now their highest charting single of their career!

The reappearance of Dollar at No 8 (32,000) is again entirely down to the TOTP effect which raises the track 11-8 proving just how unworkable the current set up is, but two places below them is Christopher Cross’ “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do” which is on the move 18-10 (28,000). It’s the theme (as you could guess) to the current Dudley Moore film which opened in the UK a few weeks ago, it got its original release last October when the film debuted Stateside and it became Cross’ second US No 1 single later that month but petered out here at No 56, better luck for him now though as it is already by some stretch his biggest UK hit.

Elsewhere three songs tumble, Kool & The Gang continue their slow come down dropping 4-5 (39,000), Jon & Vangelis finally recede 6-7 (34,000) and Meat Loaf back tracks 7-9 (31,000) but better news for Human League whose “Being Boiled” continues to improve 9-6 (38,000) though you’ll note that’s a marginal increase sales wise.

So not only do D Train top the US Disco chart this week but they are chart toppers here too. The whole of the top 5 are climbers, with former chart toppers Kool & The Gang, Joey Scarbury and Olivia Newton-John all stacking up behind them. Meatloaf gets his first top five hit with a little help from Cher.

Bucks Fizz take a record equalling tumble 1-8, equalling the biggest ever fall from the top by Queen/Bowie in December 1981.

Diana Ross and ABBA continue to rack up the top ten hits this week aswell.

EG's Chartdust: On its first appearance, Golden Brown was the highest entry to the Top 40. It followed that up with making the highest climb of last week, and now it becomes the latest #1 of 1982. The Human League are thus deprived of yet another chart-topper, but O.M.D. (up 8 to #4) look as though they might waltz their way to a fourth consecutive #1 before long.

XTC and Gillan both leap 13 places, while Olivia Newton John's follow-up to Physical is making swift progress, up 12 to 25. Six new entries are led by Hall & Oates, who return to the EG Retrochart for the first time since Kiss On My List went all the way to the summit at the end of 1980.
