---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EG's Chartdust: There's no shaking 19 from #1, as Depeche Mode have to settle for runners-up spot and could just fall short for the second time in a row, after Blasphemous Rumours/Somebody reached #2 in December 1984.

Jimmy Nail breaks into the top 5 with the surprise "who expected something this good?" single of the year so far, and it's yet another Top 10 hit for The Style Council, continuing an unbroken run dating back to their debut 45, Speak Like A Child over 2 years ago.

EMI enjoy a successful week with the two highest entries courtesy of Duran Duran's Bond Theme and Marillion's lead single from their upcoming concept album Misplaced Childhood.
