Level 42 have another Top Ten hit as "World Machine" climbs from 13 to 7:


Prince gets his second Number One this week with "Kiss":


Chartfile
Congratulations to Prince who gets his first Number One of 1986 with “Kiss” this week. As a songwriter, it’s his second Number One of the year as he knocks off The Bangles’ “Manic Monday” from the summit. Overall, it’s his second Number One single on the HMV Retrochart – his first was “Purple Rain” back in October 1984! Climbing inside the top ten this week are David Bowie, Culture Club, Howard Jones, Level 42, Mr Mister and Alexander O’Neal. Heading southwards are Depeche Mode and Phil Collins.
This week’s highest new entry comes in at Number 22 for Cliff Richard and The Young Ones who have teamed up for a cover of Ciff’s “Living Doll” – a very unlikely pairing but it’s all in aid of the “Comic Relief” charity!
The longest chart runner this week is the former Number One single by Pet Shop Boys - “West End Girls” has been in the chart for 19 weeks now and it falls from 49 to 50 this week.
Next week could see new entries from New Order, Queen, Bronski Beat, The SOS Band, Bryan Ferry, Cameo and Maxi Priest - stay tuned!

Are you thinking of creating a "Mix Tape" of the HMV Retrochart Number Ones of the 1980's?
125 songs so far have made it to the summit - but can you find a cassette long enough to fit them all on...who knows maybe in the future Home Computers can solve this issue with a new format?!
