  • Danish Chart Archive - Singles 1979 - ____ (B.T./IFPI DK)

    Hi.

    I am new to this forum. I have the official Danish Singles Chart from 1979 to 1992 as published in Danish newspaper, B.T.

    I can see elsewhere that people are wondering whether Denmark had official charts in the 80's - we did. However, they were compiled by the Danish record companies and overseen by Danish lawyer, Johan Schlüter (he is mentioned in both Billboard and Music & Media). The charts were NOT consumer charts but still contain a lot of fun songs from the period.

    I could put up the charts here if anyone is interested? I do, though, have a few questions.

    1) Is this the place to put them?
    2) Can I put them here without "getting into trouble"? (I guess they're copyrighted, but the chart IS defunct, though).

    I don't have the album charts - yet. Only singles.

    Anwyay, if anyone is interested I will see if I can find the time to put them up here.

    Hello Jan, welcome to the Forum! I for one will be absolutely delighted to see these charts - Danish chart info is a kind of mystery and if you put it here I'm sure everyone will be immensely grateful, you'll be a real hero! Share this info please-please-please!

    And I don't think there should be any problem with putting the charts here.

        Danish Chart(s) 1978

        Okay - here goes then. I will post the charts here chronologically. But before I start - here's a little introduction.

        In the years before 1979 there were no dedicated singles chart in Denmark. As seen in Billboard, the charts were a mix of albums and singles. However at the end of 1978 singles sales numbers were so high that IFPI Denmark decided to produce a singles chart (Top 10, later Top 15) from the beginning of 1979 published in Danish newspaper B.T.

        I have been to the Royal Danish Library in Aarhus and the following was the first I saw regarding the Danish singles chart.

        On 29 December 1978 a singles yearend chart was published and this was therefore the first real singles chart in Danish history.

        1 - Mabel - Skateboard Rider
        2 - Lone Kellermann & Rockbandet - Se Venedig Og Dø
        3 - Boney M - Rivers Of Babylon
        4 - John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John - You're The Only That I Want
        5 - Suzi Quatro - If You Can't Give Me Love
        6 - Boney M - Mary's Boy Child
        7 - Baccara - Parlez-Vous Francais?
        8 - Bonnie Tyler - It's A Heartache
        9 - Kate Bush - Wuthering Heights
        10 - Johnny Reimar & Smølferne - Smølfesangen
        11 - Eruption - I Can't Stand The Rain
        12 - Bee Gees - Night Fever
        13 - Chris Norman & Suzi Quatro - Stumblin' In
        14 - ABBA - Summer Night City
        15 - Smokie - Oh Carol
        16 - Bee Gees - Stayin' Alive
        17 - Dee D. Jackson - Automatic Lover
        18 - Smokie - For A Few Dollars More
        19 - Sheila & B. Devotion - Singin' In The Rain
        20 - Darts - Daddy Cool

        Next up: 1979 and the first ever weekly Singles Top 10 in Denmark

                Danish Singles Charts 1979, March (Source: BT/IFPI)

                - Tommy Seebach's Danish entry for Eurovision enters at the end of the month. At that time it was not allowed for Danish radio stations to play the winning song for weeks after the "Melodi Grand Prix" had taken place and you could also NOT buy it in the stores. Therefore the winning song entered a lot later then the other entries (Kim Larsen and Grethe Ingmann) when it finally did get released.

                  - A lot of the Eurovision songs, as you will see later on, entered the Danish Singles Charts in the 80's. Since these charts were not consumer based, one cannot tell if the Danes really did like Eurovision THAT much.

                                        Thanks. Very Interesting. Please keep it going.
                                        I'm looking for "TOP POPS/MUSIC NOW" and "MERSEYBEAT / MUSIC ECHO" Charts to complete my 60's singles charts collection.

                                          Official Danish Singles Chart 1980, January (Source: BT/IFPI)

                                          Here comes 1980 another year with a singles Top 10 all year before being expanded to a Top 15 i 1981.
                                          1980 is the year for a rare Dutch release that ends up on top the year-end chart along with a famous movie hit from UK and a German dance band...

                                          For January this should be noted:

                                          - Kim Larsen charts with yet another single from "231045-0637" before heading to the US for his great "adventure" (not)
                                          - Grace Jones gets her debut with a number four hit.
                                          - M's follow up to "Pop Muzik" doesn't get to be a very big hit. Only three weeks and a peak at number seven.
