    'Midnight Blue' was the B-side of 'All Over The World' - just over a year after the release of 'Discovery'!

    Comment


    • Kewen makes a great point about nitpicking higher in the thread...there's some great writing and insight on here

      Another remarkable thing about Thriller was that in the UK the second single Billie Jean rescued the album. It sold ok on release in 1982, I understand but got lost in the Christmas rush and you could even pick up a copy in 'proper' sales (not label-endorsed mass price markdowns) in high street stores in January 1983! All the subsequent singles propelled the album to new heights, changed the game.

      Similarly, Angels rescued Life Thru A Lens.

      Any others?

        On further reflection, if we're counting B-sides too it probably is 'Parallel Lines', with 7 out of 12 by the time 'Sunday Girl' was released...

        • Just to let everyone know, I'll be starting the 1984 thread tomorrow (Saturday) with the first chart, dated to week ending 14 January 1984, posted on Monday!

          Comment


          • Been doing a bit of adding and subtracting of the sales of the Top 500 for the year; the following comments all I think tie back to some of the speculation on this thread! And then a question at the end about the listings.

            Apologies if obvious or duplicative! By my reckoning...

            70 of the top 500 match exactly the sales you would get by adding all of their weeks on the chart, starred out or otherwise
            All 70 of these featured in the final listing of the year

            430 would have lower sales than shown in the Top 500 if we relied on a cumulative total of their sales when they were on the list
            32 of these are explained away either
            a. by a very small number which could be pre-chart leaks, or a mistake - not enough to make the Top 200 in the week before they charted
            b. a specific week when they were overwhelmingly likely to have sold a smaller number than required to make the Top 200

            Of the remaining 398
            392 could have sold a small number in the weeks after they left the chart, thus increasing the sales to the amount assigned to them in the Top 500. They also could have 'benefited' from pre-chart leaks in very small numbers

            It's my hope that by looking into this further we'll be able to get an estimate of the 'long tail' of sales taht follow a record's disappearance from the chart.

            6 have a marginally more complex tale.

            Kissing With Confidence
            I Won't Let The Sun Go Down On Me
            Song To The Siren
            all look like they sold in very low numbers indeed for more than 1 week before making even the Top 200

            1 I've yet to investigate - I think I've made a mistake

            Merry Xmas Everybody could have reasonably sold at the beginning of the year, or in very low numbers indeed for more than 1 week before re-entering the Top 200 at the end of the year. Or both.

            And then...

            Tour De France by Kraftwerk - I couldn't work this out, but I think it's (wrongly) listed as a remix on 1 October and 8 October. Is that right Robbie kingofskiffle?

              'Tour De France' charts as a remix in summer 1984. Lonnie has all the chart run, back to 1983, listed as the remix as the catalogue number remains the same. I changed the original entry from being shown as a remix to the original title. I missed those two weeks.

                  It doesn't help that back in those days record labels would often use the same 7" catalogue number for different versions of the same song. Usually the original and a remix. From memory 'Yah Mo Be There' has the same catalogue number for its 1985 remix as it does for the 1984 original though you do have the correct title for the 1984 original issue listed over in the 1984 thread.

                      Yes, I just did. I know Robbie sometimes has issues doing so.

                          Hello Dave, long time no see! I've not seen you at either here, Haven or DigitalSpy for a good couple of years. Though I've largely given up posting in the Top Of The Pops thread at DS as I hardly watch the repeats these days.

                            Hi Robbie :-) I have been more of a viewer than a poster on here and Haven.As for Digital Spy i have not been on there for about 6 years.I stopped posting on TOTP thread during the 1982 re-runs..

                              I didn't realise it was as long as 6 years since you last posted at DigitalSpy! I more or less gave up on the reruns around 1985/86 as that is the end of "my years" for music which was always roughly the mid 70s to mid 80s.

                              Do you stilll subscribe to Music Week? As you probably know the weekly editions ended at the end of 2020 and in their place is a glossy monthly magazine that is an expensive waste of time. I haven't been a subscriber since mid 2019 though I still do get to see the Chart Pack and monthly magazine. I'm glad I'm not paying for it any longer as at something like £11.99 an issue it's certainly not worth it.

                                Yes i still do subscribe to Music Week as that's the only way i can still get the Chart Pack but i agree with you it is really expensive.As for the TOTP re-runs,i stopped watching them on a regular basis around the same time as you and there were more episodes being skipped for one reason or another.

                                    • How interesting.I saw in 19 03 1983 chart LGT with Too long(peak #128).This is the famous Hungarian rock band Locomotiv GT(probably the first HUN act in UK charts).

                                      • Some hits mentioned as New Entry in january 1983 Top 200 charts actually debuted in UK chart november and december '82 in positions 76-100.
                                        For example Carioca by Blue Rondo was #76 hit in the end of 1982.

                                          For example Carioca by Blue Rondo was #76 hit in the end of 1982.
                                          Sub-top 75 placings from 1982 aren't official. I think this may be an example of when kingofskiffle was inputting the "Bubbling Under" records into his database and allocated them positions 76-100 despite the fact that they were originally listed alphabetically by then compiler BMRB rather than numerically.

                                          BMRB did in fact compile a top 200 weekly chart from May 1978 but they didn't make the chart available even to record companies. Instead each label would be informed of the positions of its own releases which were placed between 76-200.

                                              I'm not even sure if the top 100 / 200 charts that BMRB compiled exist any more given that the top 100/200 list never made it out of the BMRB office in Ealing, London. The BPI don't have any in their library. Alan Jones did have some of them as record labels used to tell him the positions of their records and he did compile a 76-100 list more than once in 1980. For example see http://scans.chartarchive.org/UK/198...s%20Albums.jpg. I wonder if he still has them all?

                                              The 1970s charts did have a longer list of breakers for a while (1973 to July 1975 if I recall) and these are listed in a thread in ukmix along with panel sales. They are basically the next 25 records once recent ex top 50 records are removed.

                                              When the chart was extended to a top 75 in May 1978 it was obvious that once records on the way down were stripped out all that remained from numbers 51 to 75 were around 10 records which would presumably have been the top 10 breakers were the chart still a top 50. Adding in a longer list of breakers would probably fill out half of numbers 51 to 100 with the rest being recent ex top 50 hits.
