Missing You John Waite 35,000

It’s clearly on its last legs but Wham! Continue to reign supreme on the singles chart for a third week with “Freedom” which posts a sale of 83,000 to bring its first month’s sales to 385,000, not a bad tally and should put the track on course for the Y/E top 10.

Paul McCartney has had a mixed week, his film has been largely slated by the critics and “No More Lonely Nights” dips 2-3 (68,000), he does however have the No 1 album as he beats Culture Club to the top slot in something of a shock outcome given the year that Culture Club have had. The album doubtless detracted sales from the single which allows Chaka Khan’s “I Feel For You” to move past it 5-2 (72,000) to become the highest charting Prince composition, he’s had quite a remarkable year- could it be topped off with a No 1?

Whether it will or not will in part depend on the fast fading Wham! and a new Duran Duran song who debut with a bang as a new entry at No 5. The song arrives with a supposed million dollars video directed by Russell Mulcahy who portrays a futuristic “Mad max” esque world as a prelude to a proposed attempt to dramatise the William Burroughs book “The Wild Boys: A Book Of The Dead” by Mulcahy and for which he approached the band to make a record for. You’ll doubtless have read about Le Bon’s “near death” experiences in filming the promo which have helped to promote the track which will feature of the band’s forthcoming live album “Arena” due next month. It comes with a possible six sleeves (one for each member and a group sleeve) just to ensure fans snap them all up, it debuts this week on a sale of 52,000 and looks set fair for No 1 next week.

Having John Lennon as your father can only help your career as his son Julian is finding out. His debut single “Too Late For Goodbyes” jumps 12-6 (51,000) this week as his debut album “Valotte” is a new entry at No 20, he is of course the inspiration for several songs by the Beatles most notably “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” and “Hey Jude”, and just to make sure that he has a hit on his hands he gets Phil Ramone in to produce the track.

Want a Status Quo album for Christmas? Then have no fear, a new greatest hits compilation “12 Gold Bars Volume II” will be released in a month and feature all their singles from 1980 to present, that will now include their version of “The Wanderer” which was a hit for Dion in 1962 when it peaked at No 10. The Quo’s version is a bigger hit as it flies 23-7 (47,000) and comes at something of a crossroads for the band who claim they have will never tour again and the future of guitarist and founding member Alan Lancaster unknown.

Not much else to cheer I’m afraid with only Alison Moyet managing to maintain their position from last week at No 8 (46,000). Heading down are Phil Oakey & Giorgio Moroder 3-4 (63,000), Stevie Wonder 4-9 (41,000) and John Waite 9-10 (35,000)
