    - I have double checked this chart and B.T. actually put "Raise" as the title here. But that is the title of Earth, Wind & Fire's album! So either it's "Let's Groove", "Wanna Be With You" or "I've Had Enough" OR not even EW&F at all! No way to truly know this since this is my only source. Have checked Billboard. Doesn't help in this case. :-/

      Last post for now - I'll see if I can find some more time to post later tonight. :-)'

      - Nicole replaces herself at number one and she has a fantastic year on the Danish chart.
      - Dr. Hook get their only Danish hit but at least it ends up going to number one.
      - Anne Grethe enters late on. In Denmark she is known for the Danish version of "Islands In The Stream" - recorded in 1984 together with Danish blues legend Peter Thorup.

        Here comes the rest of 1982.

        - Still a lot of Eurovision succes for German Nicole before first Dr. Hook and then Austrian Falco top the chart.
        - Danish duo Laid Back enter with a number one hit - so do Germans Trio - "Da Da Da" becoming one of the biggest hits of the year.
        - The girls of Sønderjylland, Vos, chart with a follow-up to "Æ Spritte" called "Pich Ska' Gyvt Sæ" (A Girl Must Marry - in southern Danish dialect).

        - Yikes! A mix-up here put Falco at number one but he was actually only number three giving Dr. Hook two weeks at the top.

          Official Danish Singles Chart 1982, August (Source: BT/IFPI)

          Songs in German charting very high and being played on the radio was very common in the 80's in Denmark. Doesn't happen very often today.

          - All German/Austrian number ones this month.
          - Steve Miller Band enter ending up at number one for four weeks.
          - O.M.D. enter with their only (!) hit on the official Danish charts.

            Official Danish Singles Chart 1982, September (Source: BT/IFPI)

            - Boney M get their last Danish hit of the 80's.
            - Popular Danish duo Rugsted/Kreutzfeldt (especially when it comes to albums) get their first of two singles chart entries.
            - Survivor chart for the first and only time in Denmark.
            - Famous Danish group Rocazino chart for the first time. Another big radio hit "All My Love" never charts which is very, very strange (and probably due to the fact that this is not based on over-the-counter sales).
            - Ex-ABBA member Frida goes to number two in Denmark.

                - Dionne Warwick enters with a number two hit in Denmark.
                - ABBA chart for the last time in the 80's.
                - 80's rarity Ingrid Kup gets a number two hit.
                - Kim Larsen enters with "5 Eiffel" (which was the name of a small pack of cigarettes in the 50's and 60's). The EP contains an old Elvis Presley song "Just Tell Her Jim Said Hello" (Kim Larsen was a big fan of Elvis) and a couple of poems by famous Danish poet Frank Jæger with Kim Larsen adding the melody - and, oh, going to number one for five weeks.

                    29 - Chips - Day After Day
                    30 - Dollar - Mirror Mirror

                    Huge misses (in my opinion):

                    Chicago - Hard To Say I'm Sorry
                    Duran Duran - Hungry Like The Wolf
                    Duran Duran - Save A Prayer
                    Duran Duran - Rio
                    Fleetwood Mac - Oh Diane (Fleetwood Mac: ZERO hits in Denmark!)
                    Forrest - Rock The Boat
                    Irene Cara - Fame
                    Joan Jett & The Blackhearts - I Love Rock 'n' Roll
                    Toto - Africa
                    Toto - Rosanna
                    Yazoo - Only You

                    I bet there are more - but these do not chart at all! "Fame" was pretty popular as a tv series in Denmark so I really believe the song would have charted big time had these charts been compiled from actual sales.

                    (Don't worry - some of the big hits of 1982 missing chart in 1983 ;-))

                    Next up: 1983

                      That Brixx song is actually very good - an uptempo New Wave number with nice lyrics and a great chorus. I like it in both English and Danish versions, the latter maybe more Highly recommended - and a shame that Eurovision sticker maybe hampered its chances to become a big hit outside Denmark. Would love to hear some more songs in that vein!

                      Very strange how Bolland's "In the Army Now" charted strongly in all the Scandinavian countries (also going Top 3 in Norway, Sweden and Finland) but received almost no recognition anywhere else - even in their homeland of The Netherlands! You'd think at least German-speaking countries would react favourably - but no... It took Status Quo to turn the song into global (well, cross-European) hit in 1986-87.

                      Nice to see Suzy Quatro having a hit with the single from her New Wave-influenced, synth-based album! I thought it was a complete flop everywhere (despite being a nice - and very unexpected from such a rocker girl - disc).

                      Funny to see "Der Komissar" versions by Falco and After the Fire (a great band, by the way, very much underappreciated!) in the same charts for several weeks! And a bit surprising - I though the cover was from the next year... The same with Trio and Zander versions of "Da Da Da" - and strange how big a hit the latter was! I expected it to chart for a week or two being just a humorous take on an already funny song. But no, it actually turned out to be quite a success in Europe and, oddly, Australasia!

                      Also heartening to see "Child Come Away" by Kim Wilde being a noticeable hit. Fantastic song and, sadly, her first flop in the UK and most other countries (though it's understandable from its content - and I'm still at a loss as to why it was even released as a single, being completely at odds with Kim's image).

                      Overall, an interesting years, something of a watershed between the old and the new in music. Thank you, Jan!

                        Official Danish Singles Chart 1983, January (Source: BT/IFPI)

                        Time for another year in the Danish Singles Chart. Like I have said before the charts between 1979 and 1992 were not consumer charts but shipping to stores based and ordered by IFPI themselves. Still they contain a great deal of fun, great and forgotten songs. 1983 no exception!

                        - Kim Larsen gets a flying start to the year with his "5 Eiffel" EP. Taco eventually takes over the top spot.
                        - Gnags - another great Danish band succesful in the 80's and 90's - debut although they got together as far back as 1966.
                        - Dexy's Midnight Runners enter but their run in the Danish chart doesn't quite match their success in the UK or the US.
                        - Brødrene Olsen - the Eurovision winners of 2000 - get their first hit of the 80's.

                                - Bonnie Tyler enters but peaks only at number six. I remember this as a huge hit in Denmark. Might have gone to number one on a consumer chart.
                                - Eurovision time again. Yugoslav Daniel got 12 point from Denmark and soared to number one for three weeks.
                                - Swedens entry Carola's "Främling" also peaks at number one.
                                - Entries from UK, Israel and winning Luxembourg also chart.

                                                Some big hits that are missing (and it simply HAS to be due to the fact that the charts were not based on actual sales until 1993).

                                                Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton - Island In The Stream

                                                Pointer Sisters - I'm So Excited (even Jump doesn't chart either!)

                                                Spandau Ballet - True (Spandau Ballet NEVER chart!)

                                                Oh, well. Still fun looking at these charts and I hope you enjoy going through these strange listings too.

                                                Next up: 1984.

                                                    I think her first three hits would have charted higher in a consumer chart. Take a look at the charts for Nordjylland (northern part of Denmark) compiled by the radio station I work at. She had three number ones.

                                                      can't wait to see where Kylie's songs offically charted in 1988 and 1989
                                                      Since it might be a while before I get there here are Kylie Minogues chart positions in 1988 and 1989 (and one in 1990).

                                                              Jan, I don't think you should be surprised at Duran's lack of hits - they really became big worldwide only by the end of 1983. Before that they mainly were the UK/Australasia sensation, later broke in North America and only after that - in Europe in a big way.

                                                              Spandau's lack of hits isn't surprising, really. In Scandinavian countries they were an albums band, with only a couple of hits for Sweden, Norway and Finland overall. They were big in West Germany, Switzerland and Benelux, but not France or Austria. In the South of Europe, they had huge success in Italy and Spain (but not Portugal, strangely). So a really spotty history - and they also had big hits in parts of Europe only between 1983 and 1986. In fact they were more of an albums band.

                                                              What is strange is why Men at Work didn't chart. "Down Under" has been a huge hit in Scandinavia and Germany and even with the shipment-based chart they should've at least get a look-in. The same with Nena - another puzzling omission.

                                                              Paul Young also broke in Europe with "Come Back & Stay", not "Wherever I Lay My Hat", which is only his biggest UK hit but not much of one anywhere else.
