  • Irish Charts 1985 to 1987

    As part of a continuing plan to produce seven handy threads, each covering three years of the Irish charts of the last 21 years of the twentieth century - the majority of which are already complete! - this one will cover the charts from 1985 to 1987, as broadcast on RTE Radio 2.

    The charts for this period were almost entirely featured previously on the "Chart Archives - 1980's" thread, albeit posted in a somewhat random order by Shakyfan, beatlened and myself, as we gradually located and collated our information. However, I had a brief look at parts of this recently, and I think there may still be the occasional omission or error there that can now be corrected. (Apart from a week in mid-1986 in which the chart compilation basis changed, creating an additional chart which will possibly remain forever incomplete! :( )

    I'll aim to add at least a few weeks here each day, if at all possible. Starting - now!

    You're a true superstar CZB. I wasn't expecting you to do this!!

    I guess you'll be keeping us busy looking for the odd typo. So here's a few I noticed:-

    The Brendan Grace hit should be MORNINGTOWN RIDE as far as I know.
    The James Ingram/ Michael McDonald hit is YAH MO B THERE
    STEP OFF is by Grandmaster Melle Mel & The Furious Five
    HAPPY XMAS (WAS IS OVER) is by John Lennon and Yoko Ono (and the Harlem Community Choir but there's really no need to type all that!! - sorry if any Harlem Community Choir people are reading this )
    The 65th Beatle

      There were 31 records in the Top 30 this week (!) - the explanation being that the "Show Some Concern" record was so far ahead of the rest that it had been designated a "special" number one.

      And this week, even more bizarrely, there were 32 records in the Top 30 - as "Show Some Concern" remained so far out of sight as to maintain its "special number one" status, and there were two records tying for the number 30 position!!!

        On the subject of "special" number 1s.....

        There was an article in the Irish News at the weekend about Self Aid. Someone was obviously doing their research properly because it mentioned the Make It Work single being awarded the title even though it is doubtful that it sold enough copies to earn the title!

          I said it before but I've never been convinced that these "special" number ones were based on sales. If a record sold enough to be number one it'd be number one, pure and simple. I always maintain that the title was given to worthy charity records that were "moral" number ones but hadn't sold enough to top the charts. No matter what the DJs said. Sure those eejits'd say anything :-)

            Hope you're not calling Larry an eejit!

              To restate my position too, I can believe that the Band Aid and Concerned records sold well enough initially to justify this treatment - but I do have major doubts about "Make It Work", in view of its unconvincing chart run after it lost the title!

              Unlike the others, the Self Aid song was played before the official (real?) number one on the chart shows. When this subject originally came up, I don't think I had found my notes covering that year, so I may have given the contrary impression.

              So on we go, as the Concerned move down to number one.......

                    I just noticed that the previous posting of this week's chart right at the beginning of the "Archives" thread had "Glory Days" and "Empty Rooms" the wrong way around. I'm not sure if a correction was later posted - but Bruce Springsteen was definitely number 9, and Gary Moore number 12.

                          I just realised that the Chris Rea hit this week is a re-entry - it first charted on 7th October 1984. So www.irishcharts.ie correctly shows 2 weeks in, highest position 26, but doesn't note that the two weeks were (extremely!) separate.

                          Counting down this week - the UKMixParade Top 200 of 2019

                              There were a few gaps in the previously-posted January 1986 charts, which I think we all somehow overlooked?! - but here now are the full versions.

                                U2 have always been Irish based. I guess Larry didn't think so. Or maybe back then, that wasn't the perception. They reached number one in 1985. :-?

                                    It may have been at the time as traditionally the majority of artists most weeks in the Irish charts had come from the UK, the USA or Ireland ...but.... it may have been an early indication that the pop world was changing, and these days it's not unusual to see acts from all over the world on the chart. In fact, if Larry had waited just 2 weeks, he would have found artists from 8 nations on the charts

                                    It's also interesting that of the UK acts, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are all represented, so you could say there's 11 countries in this week's chart!!

                                          Played just before the chart countdown and Ireland's official number one in the last two chart shows of May 1986 was a "special" number one - "Make It Work" by "Self Aid", a project involving Christy Moore and Paul Doran.

                                          The following week, this single would fall into the Top Thirty at number 2, then a week later it would drop straight out again - which, even twenty years on, has caused speculation on whether it ever sold significantly more copies than the official number one, as was much more likely to have been the case for the only two previous "special" number ones from Band Aid and The Concerned.

                                              From this week onwards, the Sunday chart show was the first revelation of the new chart, probably covering shipments to the Friday/Saturday just gone, and was therefore almost a week more up-to-date than it had previously been. [ The same thing occurred with the UK chart at some stage - I'm not sure when? ]

                                              All thirty hits were played in this week's chart show - for the first time since 17th November 1985. It is probably no coincidence that Ian Dempsey was the stand-in presenter on both occasions.......

                                              Unfortunately, he didn't mention the prior chart position of number 20......nor number 19, but thanks to some marvellous analysis by cevving below, it can be confirmed that "Venus" must have made its debut at number 14.

                                              Counting down this week - the UKMixParade Top 200 of 2019

                                                Venus - Bananarama must have been #14 on 22th June 1986.

                                                It was #5 in the Europarade in that week listed in CH,D,UK,IRL,NL. The next week only in CH,D,UK,NL and the week after in B,CH,D,UK,IRL,NL. The Europarade took only the Top 15 positions from each country!

                                                  You mean the "25th June 1986" chart - and yes, you're absolutely right! In the Europarade in which "Venus" climbed from 23 to 5 and scored in the first five countries you mentioned, "Grace" has 14 points from Ireland, "Spirit In The Sky" has 13 and "Hunting High And Low" has 12. So it's definitely that week's Irish chart that was used, and Bananarama must have been number 14 in it. Brilliant! I've amended the June posting accordingly.
