  • The title of the Pet Shop Boys single has been amended with a footnote added. As I'm loathe to amend titles from the Gallup chart report unless for reasons such as brevity this will be a rarity! However in this case it was obviously a listing error by Gallup.

    • I’m going to leave in my database as is but with a footnote. I do agree with the points made but I also have Views (as we all do!) on how these types of errors should be handled. It’s either leave alone and footnote or amend and footnote. I appreciate a Pet Shop Boys fan May want the correct title but equally they may not. My view is to reflect the chart report as was if I possibly can work out what was actually done.

      In my view - and I do appreciate this is my own and likely to be co ready to others - I’ll happily fix anything Music Week print wrong and not mention as that’s them taking the Gallup report and interpreting it. So I’m essentially interpreting Music Weeks interpretation of Gallups data. I’ll fix that if others (Record Mirror) interpret the other way. When it’s the actual Gallup report that’s a layer nearer to the main compilation and removes many of the errors MW could add. So I want to try and leave as is - unless they fix it next week. Then of course it’s clearly an error. They don’t fix it here (spoiler).

      again that’s my view and I don’t want to go against others who have different views. More than happy to be told I’m wrong (politely as I know you all will be) and also modify my view if a persuasive argument comes along.

        chart listing courtesy of kobyhadrian

        Gallup listed 'In The Night' by Pet Shop Boys on the chart report (at number 118) instead of 'Opportunities (Let's Make Lots Of Money)'. 'In The Night' is the B side.

        • Good to see Kim Carnes and Survivor, previously only charting in the US and Australia, and REM, previously only bubbling under in the US.

                  1983: 3728 panel sales / 63,376 market sales
                  1984: 926 / 15,742
                  1985: 542 / 9,214

                  Total to end of 1985: 5,196 panel sales / 88,332 market sales

                  It continues to sell into 1986.

                  The record was originally released in February 1982 so possibly / probably has additional sales from the BMRB era too.

                    It was 85 panel sales behind, which is 1,445 sales in all. It looks closer because it's the panel sales that were shown.

                        Gallup listed 'In The Night' by Pet Shop Boys on the chart report (at number 161) instead of 'Opportunities (Let's Make Lots Of Money)'. 'In The Night' is the B side.

                        • This is the point when Madonna fever suddenly hit the UK. 'Into The Groove' crashes in to the chart at number 4 and it seemed like she was everywhere - on the radio, on TV and all over the newspapers - after this.

                              Weird re the sudden splurge of Deep Purplism! Clarity from Kobyhadrian would indeed be useful there Robbie.

                                Thanks. I've updated the credit. kingofskiffle I've updated the credit on the spreadsheet you sent me.

                                'If You Were Here Tonight' became a much bigger hit in 1986 after being repromoted following the success of 'Saturday Love'.

                              • Didn't expect to see such late-era entries for Suzi Quatro and Melba Moore, or the first (I think) hit for Maxi Priest.

                                  It's the second chart entry for Maxi Priest. 'Should I (Put My Trust In You)' had charted back in February 1985.

                                  Suzi Quatro was back at RAK with a new look but it didn't work out and she left the label once again. Melba Moore had last charted in 1983 but her comeback wasn't a success.

                                    • New Nils Lofgren single gets beaten by an old label reissue.

                                      Live Aid having on effect on both Band Aid and USA For Africa.

                                      World Destruction still hanging around is interesting

                                      • ^ Yes some big climbs that had to have been a direct result of Live Aid.

                                        Is that the original version of 'Wind Beneath My Wings' charting at 127 some four years ahead of Bette Midler's hit version? Don't think I ever heard it.

                                          Same song, but not quite the first version.
                                          Australian singer Kamahl recorded it first, but it wasn't released as a single.
                                          This was followed in 1983 by Australian singer Colleen Hewett, whose version charted in Australia, Lou Rawls, whose version charted in the US, Lee Greenwood, whose version charted on the US country chart, and Gladys Knight, whose re-titled 'Hero' version charted in the US. Sheena Easton also released a version, though not as a charting single.

                                            I remember Gladys Knight's '83 version getting airplay here but don't remember noticing it in the top 200!

                                            Sheena Easton recorded the song as an album track in '82 - would probably been huge if released as a single!
