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.

10 10 04 Bette Davis Eyes Kim Carnes 32,000

The entire top 6 remain the same this week in an unusually slow week in the charts, that’s the headline but only two of those tracks gained sales wise. Right at the top Adam & The Ants keep the No 1 slot for a fourth week but “Stand And Deliver” loses 23% to 119,000 last week, that takes its tally to 602,000 placing it at No 6 on the YTD list whilst still at the top, it must be expected that the track will become No 1 for the year in roughly a fortnight.

The record currently receiving the title of best seller of the year changes this week as “This Ole House” by Shakin’ Stevens passes Ultravox’s “Vienna” to take the accolade. Shaky’s follow up “You Drive Me Crazy” meanwhile holds at No 2 on a sale of 114,000 and should easily break the half million next week. It should be noted that the winning margin for Adam & The Ants over Shaky has diminished from 82,000 a fortnight ago to just 5,000 this week, could he do it yet?

Meanwhile at No 3 Starsound hold steady but lose sales as they sold 78,000 but do hold at No 1 on the album charts, they will follow Shaky over the 500,000 mark next week.

The only two tracks to gain sales wise in the top 6 are Kim Wilde at No 4 (72,000) and the Spurs Football team at No 5 (71,000) who both benefit from TOTP performances this week, no such luck for Tenpole Tudor who keep No 6 but sell 54,000, a sales lose of 4%. Even No 10 is a non mover, Kim Carnes sells 32,000 but she is No 1 stateside keeping out a certain track which this week enters the top 10.

For all his critical claim Smokey Robinson has only been in the top 10 twice in the UK but this week he scores a third top 10 placing albeit now without his miracles as back up. “Being With You” jumps 23-7 (44,000) and his first cut from his album of the same title, it’s his first top 10 single in 11 years, the last time he was here he made No 1 with “Tears Of A Clown”.

A second top 10 on the trot for Toyah with “I Want To Be Free”- it’s taken from their fourth album “Anthem” which debuts at No 3 this week. Unlike their previous hit “It’s A Mystery” this is an original composition but no fear in continuing the bands success as the track jumps 13-9 (34,000)

The only song not mentioned so far REO Speedwagon drop a place 7-8 (38,000)
