Even as it tops the charts it looks like Dead Or Alive are running out of steam, but let’s look at the positives firstly. It’s the group first top 20 hit and finally means that they can claim to have arrived on the UK music scene, the second album is just being finished off and should be out in the next few months, it’s also the first chart topper for producers Stock/ Aitken and Waterman who are rapidly becoming in demand after helming Hazell Dean and Divine into the top 20 last year. The song has taken 15 weeks since its debut in the charts to go all the way to No 1 creating a new chart record, indeed the song was released before any of the three No 1 hits that preceded it entered the charts, it’s also the first No 1 song to mention the defining product in the music industry- the record.

Sales wise it did increase its tally, but only by 3,000 to 91,000 to bring its total to 309,000, it easily outpaced the outgoing chart topper “I Know Him So Well” with some ease as that sold 61,000, "I Know Him So Well" is now the biggest selling female duet in chart history with 699,000 sales so far.

Stephen Duffy is of course a founding member and the original vocalist of Duran Duran (he left the group in 1979 a year before they signed a record deal) Duffy went on to form several other groups including Tin Tin in 1982 with whom he released “Kiss Me” in late 1982 which peaked at No 155. He re-recorded the track for a solo release in 1984 where it was made available in limited copies before a full release this year, finally the song arrives in the top 10 at a third time of asking leaping 22-4 (51,000) which might make up slightly for walking out on the success he missed out on with the Durranies.

Top 5 in the US already Nile Rogers is back on production duties again to steer the new Madonna single “Material Girl” into the top 5 flying 24-5 (48,000) as it becomes her third top 10 single in total and second in a row from the “Like A Virgin” album. The album has only performed in a middling fashion thus far peaking at No 17 and selling 300,000 copies though it rebounds 37-23 this week, both single and album benefit from another eye catching promo video in which Madonna lifts the scene from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” where Monroe sang “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend”- say what you like about her but she does make a good pop promo.

The Commodores almost caught Paige & Dickson at the end of the week as they moved 6-3 (60,000) to have just their second top 3 single of their long career, Prince also advances 9-7 (47,000) though it doesn’t look troubling the top slot. Four other tracks are on their way down, Ashford & Simpson collapse 4-6 (48,000), King abdicate 3-8 (47,000) Springsteen scurries 5-9 (38,000) and Howard Jones scarpers 7-10 (34,000)
