  • 1970s / 1980s / 1990s UK Year End Charts (Channel 5)

    Is there a thread on UKMix of every UK YE chart since they started compiling them? I mean the ones with correct updated positions that include the final December sales of that year?
    I ask because Channel 5 are airing an 80s greatest hits show each Friday. Their top 30 charts are contradictory to the ones on Wikipedia (the only online source i could find). Wiki has John Lennon's Starting Over at #10 but 5 had it at 17. The Wiki article explains that Music Week's chart stopped at December 6th. This would mean 5's chart would be more likely to be that one. Lennon would be higher in the final chart, not lower. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980_in_British_music

    I used the search function on here as i thought all the YEs were here but couldn't find anything. OCC site only starts from 2005. What is the actual source material for Wikipedia's lists so we can know they are correct? The references on their pages don't seem to be clear on this.

    The Wikipedia references seem clear to me:
    Singes: "Chart File". Record Mirror. 21 March 1981. p. 37.
    Albums: "Chart File". Record Mirror. 4 April 1981. p. 38.

    Or am I missing something?

    Both of these issues are available at worldradiohistory:
    https://worldradiohistory.com/UK/Rec...1981-03-21.pdf
    https://worldradiohistory.com/UK/Rec...-04-04-OCR.pdf

    Both lists are actually a top 100!

      Thanks! I didn't think it would be as late as March and April before real figures became known. And that top 100 is very hard to read. I skimmed it up and down before i noticed it was the middle block with the text all bunched together. I'm gonna tweet this to Channel 5 and no longer watch their rubbish show.

        The 1980 wikipedia list is the revised BMRB Top 100 that was compiled in early 1981 and which was published in Record Mirror, as Bob has posted. The original BMRB list from 1980 had a cut off point of sales to 06/12/80 with 'Starting Over' nowhere to be seen. The revised list includes 3 weeks sales for the remainder of the year (though missing sales for sales week ending 27 December 1980 as no sales were collated for that week). Dave Taylor once posted that 'Strting Over' at number 10 in the revised list was an error and the record should have been at a lower position. He may actually have posted #17, I forget. But that is the only difference between the wikipedia list and the 5 list. The OCC have published an article about the 1980 list and have included sales for the top 5

        https://www.officialcharts.com/chart...f-1980__32562/

        To add to the mystery, I have just found a file on my computer which contains the top 50 - with sales - which matches exactly (including sales) the OCC / 5 list and which has John Lennon at #17. Looking at the file creation date, I've had it since 31 May 2008. The question is, where di I get it from as it predates me knowing Dave Taylor. Secondly where did the OCC / 5 get it from if everything matches up?

          I posted the 1980s year end charts at Haven a number of years ago. I'll post them here if anyone is interested. I do think they are also at ukmix but probably buried within a thread that doesn't make it obvious the top 100 charts are there.

            Right, i've now had to delete that tweet!

            There are no more anomalies from 81 onwards, then?

              Yeah, those are probably the least legible charts I have ever come across in these old magazines.

              And apparently these magazines were added to the archive just a couple of weeks ago, great timing!

                Are there year ends on here since the 50s? They would be nice. Or as far back as they go? I definitely remember seeing some on here. The new search function is useless.

                    Here are the year end charts for the 1980s as published at the time. If anyone wonders why some titles / acts are in all uppercase and others are not it's down to two versions of the year end charts being compiled, one with an earlier sales cut off (usually early to mid December) and one which covered the entire year (except for 1980 to 1982 when sales were not collected in the week that included Christmas Day). Both the original and revised charts were published in the early 00s on a long defunct chart website. The owner of the site added in the revisions (using largely lower case) to the orginal year end list. The formatting isn't brilliant but the lists are accurate and are what was published by Music Week / BPI / Record Mirror in the New Year. It's interesting to note that only the upper part of the charts were revised with most of the chart positions staying the same.

                                I overlooked your post. I thought the year end charts for the 1980s had been posted at ukmix.

                                  Great. And presumably OCC will be confirming each year's top 30 (or 50?) every Friday now. I'll still be avoiding the show unless it gets some better talking heads, though.

                                    Ah, yes! 1981 and The Human League will be interesting. Said by Zeus to be #6 in a revised list that wasn't published.

                                      Dave Taylor once told me, in correspondence, that (Just Like) Starting Over should have been number 17 rather than number 10. He thought the BMRB had muddled it's sales up with Happy Xmas (War Is Over) in the final sales week. I must admit that didn't sound very likely to me.

                                        That might explain why John Lennon was no 17 on that countdown last night.

                                          It's also number 17 on the list I posted above at https://www.ukmix.org/forum/chart-di...1#post10571001. That list was posted at Haven in November 2006, before Dave Taylor was posting here or at BuzzJack. The poster at Haven said he had estimated sales yet he too ended up with John Lennon at #17 when it would have been easy enough to have just left him at number 10 with a higher estimated sale.

                                            In the '90s I asked CIN if they could provide me with copies of year-end charts for the '80s. Happily they obliged and furnished me with photocopies of the various charts. Most years ('83 onwards) seemed to have been taken from some sort of year-end MW book, while a few ('80-'82) were the original YE 'BARS' chart reports with panel sales - the chart for '80 posted by Robbie above corresponds to that. And I think the others correspond to what CIN sent too.

                                              You have the chart that Robbie posted showing John Lennon at number 17? Or the one with him at number 10?

                                              The BPI Yearbook published the Top 100s for each year from 1983 to 1989 (also 1981), although Music Week did as well in more traditional chart form.

                                                How accurate would those estimated sales be?

                                                  They may be based on the actual panel sales and multiplied up consistently to estimate the total sales, but for 1980 the multiplier used is too high., as was often the case.
