  • Of the 60,054 entries between 1952 and 2022 that have charted on the main chart - thus Top 100 for 1983-1991 and only Top 200 from 1994 - 152 entered at position 200. 15 went on to peak in the Top 100, and 4 in the Top 10.

    19/07/2014 - Jess Glynne - Right Here - moved 200 to 6 (it's peak)
    21/02/2009 - Lily Allen - Not Fair - entered at 200 and eventually peaked at 5 on 23/05/2009

    And then these two...

    29/11/2003 - moved 200 (entry) to peak of 1 due to leaked sales - Westlife and Mandy

    And then this one entered on 14/04/2012 for Labrinth featuring Emeli Sandé and Beneath Your Beautiful for a single week and then re-entered months later and went to the top on 03/11/2012 (climbing 85-1 in the process).


    As to the Top 200 (1983-1985 as posted here and 1986 which will follow) a record does entered at 200 in 1986 and climb into the Top 10 - so that's something to look forward to!

    Most however have simply entered at 200 and stayed there. One, which of course is not really for this list, entered at 200 on 8 Jan 1983 (the first time it appeared as a Gallup entry) and climbed to a peak of 43. It had been a number 1 years before and we have just seen it's Gallup chart peak a few chart weeks ago in June - Soft Cell & Tainted Love. Of course that should not be here as it was not a new entry to the Top 200 when adding in the prior years BMRB.

    • Thanks for the confirmation KOS on this point. I tend to regard the first two you mentioned as more truthful examples, as by February 2009 when 'Not Fair' entered at the bottom rung, the Top 200 was the actual 1st to 200th best-selling tracks without exclusions (bar the occasional oddity but no routine sales-based rules in play), and although streaming had just been incorporated, even in July 2014 when 'Right Here' arrived initially at the lowest published position the Top 200 was still exclusion/rules-free and a fair representation of the most sold/streamed tracks of the week. 'Beneath Your Beautiful's claim is just as legitimate in that the Top 200 was just that in April 2012, but as you point out, there was a 28-week hiatus before returning to it at 85, so not a consistent in-chart climb. Even these three had quirks about them though which would've accounted for their curiously low entry points - Lily Allen and presumably Labrinth's songs initially were available as album cuts ahead of their official release as UK singles proper and so it was sales on this basis that caused them to chart early, while I suspect Jess Glynne's first week at the bottom was as a streaming-only track ahead of release as a download?

      In November 2003 we were still beset by the age-old exclusion rules below 75 (and I think by then even below 40 i.e. 'the bargain basement rule') and so in truth 'Mandy' would've been nowhere near the actual 200th best-seller that week, which to my mind distinguishes it from the others, although as you say this uncharacteristically deep first appearance for Westlife was entirely due to modest leaked sales ahead of official physical release.

      I'm really pleased you haven't given the game away as to which 1986 song enters at 200 and rises to the Top 10! It'll be something intriguing to look out for and it's not so long to wait now as we're already almost half way into '85.

      Worth pointing the 'Tainted Love' situation out I agree, but of course it doesn't fully match the criteria given its prior Top 100 (or was it 200, still we seem to be unsure?!) BMRB-compiled chart era.

      • Early appearance from Bon Jovi on the latest chart.

        Critics at the time were quick to note the similarity between "In and Out of Love" and a single of the same name by Scottish band Heavy Pettin' released a year or so earlier....

        • I daresay their legion of fans around the world would hotly disagree, but looking at their initial stabs at singles - i.e the ones that weren't hits here - there was little clue as to either the finer songwriting skill or extended career longevity that they would enjoy as a b(r)and across the next two decades, and even to a lesser extent as a nostalgic 'legacy' act in the two after that despite the big hits having long-since dried up. Just another tired old cock-rockin' Americana-led group among many who would come and go at that point in time. I guess 'Prayer' altered that view to some degree as it showed some greater promise, but anthemic as it was, personally I still never really liked it, and even now only really would bother listening to two or three of their hit singles.

          • I always thought The Big Kiss debuted at #88. Nice to know it charted a week earlier.

              • I was never really into the Fine Young Cannibals but 'Johnny Come Home' (new at #35) is still excellent.

                • I forgot to upload this last week. It's the Year to Date singles from January to March 1985. The top 100 was posted last Monday but this is the full list of everything that charted inside the top 200 plus all the singles that were starred out. A top 692!

                  The chart was compiled by kingofskiffle and is based on Gallup data. The chart includes both panel sales and market sales (using 17 as the multiplier).

                  kingofskiffle has already provided me with the Year-to-Date sales from January to June 1985. The top 100 will be posted here next Tuesday and the full chart (a top 1,092!) will be available to download on the same day.

                      It's on its way! It'll be charting very soon...

                      From what I can see, the single was released in May 1985 but was quickly replaced by a remixed version in June 1985. I'm not sure why the track was so quickly remixed but I wonder if the lack of a chart appearance so far is down to the label withdrawing the original version and not having yet pressed up copies of the remix.

                        • Interesting to see where Marilyn's 'Pray For That Sunshine' landed, the single he didn't like and had omitted from his album reissue.

                          • The Beach Boys are back with 'Getcha Back' at #112 with their trademark harmonies and summer sound. I liked it and bought it.

                            • Robbie - A minor errorette either in the Gallup original report or Kobyhadrian's type-up - 'Out Of Touch' by Hall & Oates should be listed as a re-entry not new at No 78; it has of course had a prior chart track record that began in Oct '84.

                              I'm curious about this Level 42 EP arriving at joint no 87. Never heard of it and didn't realise they'd ever issued any EPs, at least during their run of hot hits in the mid-'80s.

                              Re The Beach Boys I didn't think they'd attempted a comeback until '88 with 'Kokomo', but it seems I was wrong given this new song at 112. Shame it didn't really catch fire for them.

                              • "Follow Me" was the track from the Level 42 EP that got some airplay.​​ Generally a low-key release for fanbase only.

                                  I'm curious about this Level 42 EP arriving at joint no 87. Never heard of it and didn't realise they'd ever issued any EPs, at least during their run of hot hits in the mid-'80s.

                                  Re The Beach Boys I didn't think they'd attempted a comeback until '88 with 'Kokomo', but it seems I was wrong given this new song at 112. Shame it didn't really catch fire for them.
                                  Looking at Discogs, Out Of Touch when released in 1985 was then released as a Shaped Picture Disc (C) 1985, which might be reason why it was classed as a New Entry.

                                  • It could also be me making a mistake - I’ve found a few double entries as I’ve been checking and I will go and double check when I get home tonight. At work now without the database.

                                    • The 1985 chart entry of 'Out Of Touch' has both a different catalogue number and B side to the 1984 release, so it's definitely a new entry.

                                        From what I can see, the single was released in May 1985 but was quickly replaced by a remixed version in June 1985. I'm not sure why the track was so quickly remixed but I wonder if the lack of a chart appearance so far is down to the label withdrawing the original version and not having yet pressed up copies of the remix.
                                        Are you talking about Huey (The Power Of Love) or Jennifer ((The) Power Of Love)? CONFUSED.COM!

                                        I can't find any dates for Huey in UK - just months, not actual dates. Jennifer was first released in 84 and Discogs doesn't even give months for the various 85 formats. She charts in the 100 in June, Huey in August.


                                        Big jump in sales for Duel even though it stays at 21. Some consolation then.

                                            • The Big Kiss and Pray For That Sunshine both deserved much higher chart positions.

                                              Comment


                                              • Al Corley new at 195 deserves place in Top 100.Great dance track-#1 in France and Top 20 in Ger,Aut and Swi.
                                                I can't believe Frankie beat Cherish in sales??Frankie-for me one of the worst 80s charttoppers in UK.The americans gave it 75th place and that's the real position for that song.

                                                • First release of Win's You've Got The Power - a great single used in an iconic advert.


                                                  Kirsty MacColl single that bafflingly failed even though it was playlisted


                                                  Indie hit from Doctor and The Medics

                                                  And the great original version of a future Bucks Fizz hit! Force 8 being a Dooleys offshoot


                                                  2 Fat Boys singles charting the same week!
