  • Irish Singles Charts 1976-1978

    I'm gonna try and collect as many of the Irish singles charts as I can find and post them in yearly threads because I may not find enough to do longer threads. I have completed the charts for 1959 -1962 and will finish those posts as soon as I can. Threads for 1978-1999 are up already thanks to CZB and Shakyfan. I picked 1976 as my starting point for the yearly threads because in that year the Irish chart was split between international and homegrown acts and I don't know much about it so I thought I'd look it up. Luckily enough access to these charts seems fairly easy to come by.

    For 1976 in addition to the top 20 listing there was a weekly list of "Near Misses" so I'll list these as well. Often when these charts appeared in the regular top 20 the last week position was given so I've listed that unofficial position where known in the "Near Misses" list though I've listed the record as a new entry (ne) or re-entry (re) when it made the top 20. This chart included records which had dropped out the previous week so I guess they would have been in the chart had it been expanded to a top 30. The near misses list wasn't confined to 10 records though and wasn't listed in sales order. I've shown them in the order they were published except where I knew the position from the "Last Week" column where I've listed these at the start and the rest in the order they were listed.

    The Irish artists chart became a separate "official" chart from the summer of 1976. Before then there was a top 10 Irish records chart, which listed the Irish records separately, but these could also make the regular top 20 so I guess it's not treated the same way as the later Irish charts where, I assume, a record could make one chart or the other but not both. I'll find out when I get that far.

    Just one thing about chart dates here. The charts were always published in the Evening Herald on Thursday for the w/e the previous Sunday. The Irish Charts website uses the Day after the Herald published them as the chart date. Maybe this was the broadcast date? In all cases I'm taking the w/e date from the charts and using them here. So for example the First chart was published in the Herald on 7th of January, listed as the 8th of January on the Irish Charts website and was dated "w/e 3rd of January 1976". So I'm using 3rd of January 1976 as the date even though it contradicts some posts elsewhere, including some of my own. But make your own mind up!!

    So here's the list for 1976... so far

    Any help/ comments greatly appreciated

    Edit: I've decided to amend all the chart dates to match the date that the chart was published in the Herald. Its more consistent than the week ending dates which were all over the place!!

        * The artists for the songs at #8 & #10 were switched by mistake. In order words Loudest Whisper was listed at #10 with "Turn Out The Lights" and Brendan Shine at #8 with "Come Back Paddy Reilly". I'm making the assumption that the songs were in the right positions. I don't know for sure.

          I just discovered, though I should have realised it earlier, that the Irish charts at this time were not based on record sales, but on a weekly opinion poll!!!

          In an article in the Evening Herald on 20 October 1976, the singer Big Tom and his manager accused the Irish chart of being unfair, on the basis that his single was the biggest selling record in the country at the time but that wasn't shown in the charts. The single in question was "It's A Weary Weary World" which never charted!!

          I don't know when the opinion poll method started but all of the 1976 charts were compiled this way, and it continued on up until the Irish and International separation of the charts was dicontinued in 1977.
          The charts were listed as "Compiled on behalf of the Recorded Music Industries of Ireland by Aubrey Fogarty Associates, 72 Haddington Road, Dublin 4". On occasion instead of "Compiled on behalf of .." the words "An opinion poll on behalf..".

          In an interview in the same article with Myles McWeeney, who was the chart compiler for Aubrey Fogarty Associates, he explains how the chart is compiled. The charts were compiled in agreement with the RMII and sanctioned by RTE. They were published in the Evening Herald as well as the magazines Starlight and Scene. The charts were based on the panel's choice, the panel being made up of around 200 (anonymous so as to avoid the possibility of record company interference)people between the ages of 14 and 36, from the cities and from the country. Each week the panel was asked to rate the records listed in all the charts, the Top 20 international, the Top 10 Irish, those records listed as Near Misses or On The Move for both charts and a listing of New Releases, both International and Irish. If a new release got enough votes it became a new entry or made the On The Move chart the following week. There were blank spaces in the voting list for records which the panel member could vote for which weren't listed but usually the new entries came from the list of new releases supplied for the voting panel and published in the paper. I'm not sure if an unlisted record ever charted the following week. Published alongside the charts was a panel for each voting member to give their name address and panel number, and as far as I can make out, they were eligible to win free LPs for their troubles.

          Certain records were placed "according to their sales figures", namely those on two record companies, Hawk and Release, who requested that their record sales be taken into account when compiling the chart and this was done on condition that their record sales could be audited at any time but these could be pushed down the chart if enough other records were voted for. No other record company requested this.

          It was stated that "RTE will not countenance under any circumstances a chart based solely on sales figures". I presume that there had been trouble with chart manipulation in the past, and as far as I remember alleged hyping was to rear its ugly head again at the end of the 70s.

          Finally, the chart compilers acknowledged that Big Tom had indeed the biggest selling record in the country. But he still didn't chart with it

          I'll post the remaining 1976 charts soon. Seems like it was a good place to start researching after all

            Hello,
            I find these Irish Charts fascinating, Beatlened.

            When you have finished 1976, please do 1974, 1975, 1977, and 1978 too - thanks. (1979, and beyond, is already being done in Threads here).

              I have all of the charts for 1976 and I'll post them easy enough. I have the first few of 1977 and hopefully I'll be able to do all the charts to catch up with what CZB has posted for 1978. After that I plan on doing the rest of the 60s and 70s. It's gonna take a while but if the charts are out there somewhere, I'll find them.

              Here's the next few for 1976

                      "Because of the increased interest in Irish Artists and records, it is felt that the Irish Top 10 should come first. Panel members are now asked to vote one to ten for the Irish Top 10 and new releases as well as voting in the usual [way] for the international releases"- The Evening Herald (14/7/76)

                      From this week, Irish records were excluded from the International chart, hence Joe Dolan's huge drop off the chart from #2. Thin Lizzy, who had featured in the Irish Top 10 for June 30th were dropped the following week, and were now featured in the International chart and not the Irish chart. Presumably because they were on an international record label.

                      Although the Irish charts were printed first, I'm continuing on here with the first International Artists only chart. Bear in mind that anything greater than position 20 was considered "On The Move" and is not considered a hit. I will post all the Irish only Top 10s from the period 14/7/76 up to its demise in February 1977, after I have finished posting the remainder of the International Charts for 1976. It's starting to get quite messy!!

                      Note also that the first few international charts included some Irish records in the On The Move section. The Irish Artists Top 10 would get its own On The Move section from August.

                                      The complete list of the Irish Artists only chart from 14/7/76 - 16/2/77

                                      From 14/7/76 records by Irish artists were given their own chart and was the first listed chart in the music press. This was a move aimed at raising the profile of the Irish music industry. Before the split in the charts, Irish records had taken typically a quarter of the top 20. When the split charts were dropped in 1977, Irish records took over half the positions in the new combined chart. Looks like a success story!!

                                      I'll post all of the Irish Artists only chart at this point and then continue on with the charts from 1977 at the end

                                      * The Last Week positions here are from the Irish Artists chart for 7/7/76 which contained records which also featured in the main Top 20. It's not part of the official list of recognised "Irish Hits" charts but is posted earlier in this thread

                                      * IF I DIDN'T HAVE A DIME was a re-issue and a double a-side with KATIE DALY. This song did not get listed on the chart

                                                  A chart was compiled but it wasn't published in the Herald. I'll have to track down one of the other sources. In the meantime, these 10 records were more than likely in the Top 10 that week. Positions unknown for now, apart from the numbers one and four.
