    • Jennifer is almost there....!

      I assume Virginia Astley was in no way related to the more well-known beblazered Astley that arrived to trouble the charts two years later?!

        no but daughter of composer Edwin Astley (Department S, Randall and Hopkirk Deceased) and sister of producer Jon Astley (The Who, Eric Clapton, Corey Hart).
        She was also in a trio called The Ravishing Beauties who supported The Teardrop Explodes and did a Peel Session.

        Andre Cymone was a member of Prince's band pre The Revolution and went on to produce Adam Ant's 1990 comeback album. He was married to Jody Watley and produced both her and Pebbles.

        • Modern Talking in at 80 with the second of their five consecutive German number one singles.

          'You Can Win If You Want' only climbed ten places higher here - maybe just as well! Any more exposure and more people would have noticed how much had been "borrowed" from the Gallager & Lyle song 'The Runaway' (itself a minor hit for Elkie Brooks in '79).

                That's what I love about having the panel sales data available. It really does help unlock and humanise the chart!

                • There's a case to be made that 'The Boy With The Thorn In Side' b/w 'Rubber Ring' and 'Asleep' is The Smiths' Greatest ever release....and I've just made it!

                    The gap of 32 panel sales is the smallest difference so far in 1985 and actually the 2nd smallest in the Gallup Era so far. The gap between Billy Joel (Uptown Girl) and Lionel Richie (All NIght Long (All Night)) was only 29 panel sales on the 5th November 1983. Interestingly the previous week Culture Club (Karma Chamelon) was only 64 panel sales ahead of Billy Joel (Uptown Girl) so there were 2 sub-100 differences close together.

                      I hadn't heard this before. Sounds like it's the same vocalist as 'Clouds Across The Moon' (his wife, Liz 'Dizzy Lizzy').
                      I also just learned that he is also Key West (as in featuring Erik).

                            I should have said The Dance Electric was written and co-produced by Prince.

                            Article in Music Week about Imagination's Last Days Of Summer being removed from the chart for chart hyping. A girlfriend of a band member allegedly bought up copies around the country.

                            Looks like Sandra's big Euro hit will have a long tortuous run in the lower reaches here - it doesn't break the 100 until November and then enters again next May.


                            The Flaming Mussolinis were from Middlesbrough - near me! With members originally from all around Teesside. (the guy from the RAH Band mentioned above is actually from Stockton-on-Tees where i live)
                            They were decent alt rock.

                            Two "Stay With Me"'s on the same sales!
                            Rock Me Baby and Rock Me Tonight on the same sales!

                              Good find re: 'Last Days Of Summer' by Imagination. The single had already charted inside the top 100, at #99, on the chart dated 28/09/85 and as mentioned in the article, it was at #113 "last week" (chart dated 05/10/85). The two week exclusion is a stronger punishment than simply downweighting sales as might previously have happened. That said, exclusion was always available to Gallup prior to the two week rule being introduced.

                              A bit of a spoiler, but the label do attempt to push the song once more later in the year.How the record performs when re-promoted will be revealed in the next two weeks!

                              • It was actually their best record for years - in my top 20 songs of all time - and deserved a much higher chart placing on its own merit.

                                  Must admit - at the time I never twigged that "Maria Magdelena" in the song was the biblical character we know as Mary...

                                  • Poor old Midge... a sales increase of 52% isn't enough to keep him at No.1.

                                      • Thereza Bazar’s Too Much In Love only made #194?! Co-written with Terry Britten by way of compensation in 1984 when she was unable to record What’s Love Got To Do With It because Tina had just taken it.

                                        Bobby G’s Big Deal never cracked the top 40 but must have outsold many Bucks Fizz records.

                                                  That sounds about right as I bought the single before I moved to London at the start of October 1985. I used to buy a number of new singles each week from a chart return shop in Newcastle which would sell them at a knockdown price. It will have been one saturday in September when I bought it. In fact there's quite a few singles in the above chart that I owned simply because they were sold very cheaply when first released.

                                                  • That Miami Vice single could be confusing! Apparently it's from a Yorkshire Television series called The Winning Streak.
