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.

Chartfile w/e 31st July 1982:

A number of surprises in the top ten this week. First up: Congratulations to Paul McCartney who moves up to Number One this week with "Take it away" - I didn't see that one coming! Donna Summer gets stuck at Number three and the big shock this week is that Irene Cara's "Fame" is a non-mover at Number Four!
Climbing inside the top ten are Yazoo, Dexys Midnight Runners, The Clash and Madness. Heading down are
Steve Miller Band, Bananarama and Dollar. Can Macca hold the top spot? Stay tuned only @phoenix123 has the answers!

It's another "Fame" double this week as it continues to dominate the field with a further 31% sales increase to 189,000 copies, that's the second highest total of 1982 behind The Jam's "Town Called Malice" which had the benefit of two Saturday's sales back in February, similarly the Original Soundtrack holds at No 1 on the album charts which is joined at No 2 by "Kids From Fame" this week, Britain just can't get enough. Irene Cara has now sold 484,000 copies and still increasing Cara could be looking at the first million seller of the decade! It's already the 12th biggest single of the year.

Registering a 113% sales increase are Dexy's Midnight Runners who rise 9-2, the 91,000 copies it sold to make the runner up spot is the highest total since "Goody Two Shoes" scored 97,000 copies back in May, Cara may be too far ahead for "Come On Eileen" for them to catch her but the group can already celebrate their second biggest hit of their career, album "Too Rye Ay" is released this week and may ultimately harm the single's chances of going any further.

The sole new song in the top 10 comes courtesy of Japan, their cover of the Smokey Robinson & The Miracles "I Second That Emotion" crawls 14-9 (36,000) this week to become their second top 10 single and must be a mighty relief to the band whose last single "Cantonese Boy" couldn't progress beyond No 24. The previously highest placed version of the track came from Diana Ross & The Supremes and The Temptations who could only make No 18 back in 1969.

Though their aren't any more new tracks to discuss the top 10 is far from static, Madness can be perhaps a little disappointed with "Driving In My Car" which shot into the charts at No 6 last week and this week can only advance to No 4 (56,000) and actually loses 4% in sales! Both Yazoo and Hot Chocolate also improve 5-3 (66,000) and 8-7 (42,000) respectively. Four tracks are on their way out, Trio's minimalistic take on pop drops 2-5 (50,000), Bananarama hit the skids 4-6 (46,000), Steve Miller Band can't turn the trick 3-8 (37,000) and Shalamar forget to climb 7-10 (34,000).

OK so the link to the TROS Europarade no longer works which is a bummer. Anyone have a link to or record of the European charts for the 80s? Found something on UK Mix thankfully.

The most competitive top ten on record sees Yazoo sneak a second chart topper ahead of a potential third week for Bananarama. The entire top 6 could have been a chart toppers earlier in the year on these counts. The Clash lose out with a 2-6 drop despite gaining from 50,000 to 55,000, they are outstripped by Donna Summer who also slips 4-5 while Cliff Richard and Dexy's Midnight Runners look more likely to claim the top spot next week as both reach new peaks.

Irene Cara's Fame is sitting pretty at UK #1 with huge sales as it returns to the top ten here. At 35 (non consecutive) weeks and counting it is likely to reclaim the record as longest running chart hit in the next month.
