    • Low entry for the recently-all-conquering Billy Joel at No 200.

      Interesting to see the original Tom Waits version of 'Downtown Train' in at 134 this week, although I must confess to not remembering hearing the song until the R Stewart cover was issued over four years later.

      How bad luck is it that of all the records in these charts to erroneously be given two positions for a few weeks running it had to be Jim Davidson's!! I wonder whether Thatch ever actually heard the single...

      • This is amazing stuff!!!! Hoped for years that these numbers would someday be available but didn't hold out much hope.
        Thank you!!!!

            • 'A Good Heart' by Feargal Sharkey climbs from 4 to 1 and becomes the sixth record in 1985 to make that particular move

              There's no Madonna single inside the top 10 for the first time since 8 June, 23 chart weeks ago.

              Two versions of 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' by U2 are charting in the lower reaches of the top 200 and both are the German release. Gallup have decided to list the 12" (#116) and the 7" (#134) formats separately. If sales had been combined the single would be at number 98.

              • Jasper Isley debuts with Caravan Of Love a year before The Housemartins' cover version will go to #1. I actually love both versions of this excellent song . It's in the same vein as the emotive People Get Ready by the hugely underrated Impressions.

                  • Didn't guess that Survivor's latest 'Rocky' contribution 'Burning Heart' would've started its chart life as far back as 16 Nov '85 (no 111) given it didn't make the 75 until 1 Feb '86, 11 weeks later. I guess it was issued in tandem with the US release of the film, which according to Wiki was 27 Nov '85, while IMDB confirms it didn't get released in the UK until 24 Jan '86, which would've given it the boost it needed to finally make a proper imprint on our charts.

                    After her previous flops, who could've known when this chart was current that Whitney Houston's best-yet entry at 60 would go all the way?

                    A full year of cumulative extended Top 200 appearances for 'Shout' by Lulu (and her Luvvers) this week - I never had any concept at the time that this old 1960s screacher was still so enduringly popular and enough to make it such a regular feature on the longer charts. And all this still some eight months off its reissue as a re-recording and eventual Top 10 hit all over again.

                    • The title "An Extract From This Is What She's Like" tells it all, of Kevin Rowland's resistance to releasing a single from "Don't Stand Me Down", until one of the execs pleaded with him, "Give me some way of promoting this record."

                        • The Dexys single is a condensed version of a long album track - the full version is on the 12"
                          "An Extract From" is in tiny letters on the artwork. https://www.discogs.com/master/14161...What-Shes-Like

                          The Family is the group that first recorded Prince's Nothing Compares 2 U.

                          I noticed an ad in Music Week a couple of weeks/issues ago for a cover of Love Will Tear Us Apart by PJ Proby. Looks like it hasn't charted.
                          Shame - you won't believe your ears when you hear it!

                            • So many debuts between 101-130 positions of non-hits.Simone-Red Light...is a dance remake of 70s hit by Billy Ocean.The best dance cover belongs to Precious Wilson(Eruption),not charted here.
                              Modern Talking maybe will charting till the end of '85 with Cheri Cheri Lady?(third german #1 hit)If the single was released in UK?

                                It doesn't appear to havwe been released as an A side in the UK. It's listed as the B side of December 1986 single 'Give Me Peace On Earth'.

                                    (No need to spoiler these Robbie, but if you like you can say how many of them chart).

                                    • A four-way tie at 123?! Got to be a first and possibly last.

                                      Willy Finlayson's back I see, with a version of 'The Skye Boat Song'. Haven't heard his take but I suspect I'd prefer it to Roger Whittaker's which went all the way into the Top 10 a year later.

                                      • Cheech and Chong - famous high-headed comedy actors doing a riff on Born In The USA.

                                        I'm not keen on that Willy Finlayson cover, sadly.

                                        Zinno single is a James Bond inspired dance track. Doesn't credit Monty Norman but some releases subtitle it as Theme from Dr. No.

                                        Is #187 this? Nino Rota? https://www.discogs.com/master/76225...iet-Love-Theme
                                        It's very badly labelled but clearly "Romeo & Juliet" is not the actual artist. And why was a 1968 theme suddenly released as a single?

                                          Of the above only Angie Gold doesn't make an appearance...

                                            That's the one, Stiff BUY 231. The credit listed here is the same as the one used by Gallup on the chart report. As you've posted, it's very badly labelled with no actual artist credit other than Romeo & Juliet.

                                            The version you linked to is a promo copy. The commercial 7" version is at https://www.45cat.com/record/buy231

                                            The comment at the above link indicates that the artist is Bob Andrews who had a long time connection to Stiff Records https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Andrews_(keyboardist)

                                              and there we find the reason for release - Simon Bates' Our Tune.

                                              It is correctly listed as Bob Andrews further down the Discogs list.

                                              Don't worry - i won't be asking for a correction here. Clearly that's what the label says so that's what you go with.

                                                  It would have done better with a different title, I suspect....
