    • Spirit In The Sky going straight in at 40 (seemingly with no major airplay) two places above Fuzzbox who had been performing the song live for some time. Their plans to release it now scuppered - it would end up as a 12" b-side to Love Is The Slug.


      LMAO at the failed attempt at a hit by four snooker players while Snooker Loopy hits big.

      • If The Love Fits new at 134 for Lewis (Sisters) with the original version of Can't Wait Another Minute on the b-side

          Indeed... At least Four Away is a better name than the Matchroom Mob

            and with this b-side flagged on the cover and co-listed by Discogs. There's no trace of the a side on YouTube. https://www.discogs.com/master/43571...Another-Minute

            Dee, Linda and Shirley Lewis who all the made the top 100 solo. Fascinating!

            • So the 2nd lowest panel sales of 1986 and smallest gap between 1 and 2 is reset again 1 week after previously being set to 2634 and 49, respectively (2041 for the Pet Shop Boys at the beginning of the year still the lowest). I wonder why it lost 16.6% of its sales; perhaps gearing up for the start of the summer period?

              • Sly Fox's future hit really took a while to catch on - 132 last week and now down to 162. Who knew it would eventually almost go all the way?!

                      It's definitely Run - this is a charity version (for Sport Aid) which was released in May 1986. The Rule version had been a top 5 hit in 1985.

                      It's a strange one as the single wasn't released until Friday 23 May 1986 (therefore two weeks after the sales period the above chart covers) but it's listed under the Run title on the Gallup chart report. My take is that it's probably the original version that's selling but Gallup is listing the record under the Run title.

                      • The Belle Stars 'World Domination'' not exactly dominating, but at least charting now.

                        • Chart debut of Primal Scream when they were a jingly jangly indie band (in style as well as label definition).

                            Robbie e - incidentally, how you do know it was the Friday of that week that this single was released? I only ask because while we have access to most weekly release lists of the period, in that 1980-'87 period it's hard to know without other sources corroborating it whether the actual day of release was the Monday or Friday of that week (or indeed any other day, although one surmises that it'd normally be one or the other). I tend to find that by late '85 labels are defaulting mostly to the Monday, and by '86 that was the most common day of the week for releases.

                            EDIT - WIkipedia shows Fri 23 May apparently derived from Record Mirror, but wider question still stands when looking at Music Week release lists - presumably we can't tell if a product was issued Monday or Friday?

                            • Interesting to find 'Crush On You' by The Jets charting eight months before it became a solid hit; I didn't know it'd been re-released.

                              Lowly arrival for the underrated 'The Promise You Made' by Cock Robin at 156. Sly Fox rebound to 104 but still two weeks off breaching the 75.

                              Great to see the excellent 'Quiet Life' by Ray Davies appear at 116, albeit little surprise that it didn't make much more of an inroad into the chart at that time.

                              • The awful 'I Wanna Be A Cowboy' from Boys Don't Cry sneaks in at #170. It was a huge hit in America and Australia (and #1 in New Zealand). Mercifully it never took off here...

                                Re-issue of The Damned's classic 'New Rose' makes the Top 100. Guess we'll never know if that's better than it managed back in '76...

                                  'The Promise You Made' by Cock Robin is excellent. It should have been a much bigger hit.

                                  I remember hearing 'Crush On You' in 1986 on Capital Radio in London. This is definitely the era where an increasing number of records were having to be re-issued with better promotion in order to become big hits.

                                        • By this point Grandmaster Flash was the name of the whole group - as they say in the chorus. The Furious Five had split and a new group was formed.
                                          So he went from not actually being on records he was credited for to being the name of the entire group.

                                              • another example of the difference between chart positions and sales peaks.

                                                Have a look at Falco's weekly sales figures in April and May 1986 with Rock Me Amadeus. Then look at his chart positions. Who would have guessed his highest weekly sales would have been when he was number 3 in the UK chart, and not at number 2 or 1 as he reached in subsequent weeks? Even more surprisingly, as it dropped from 1 to 4 it increased its sales total slightly. It's lowest total in these particular week being the week it spent at number one!!

                                                  • I wonder if The Mission single had a format boost to make it jump to 76? There's no apostrophe in the word Serpents, by the way.

                                                    The Immortals was a one-off group featuring Queen's John Deacon for the film Biggles.
