There are fourteen climbers in this month’s chart – the greatest number for more than a year – and the Rapid Riser is the brand new, and 235th, number one. Although there is a different lead vocalist, with Luka Cruysberghs having replaced Noemie Wolfs, it’s the second chart-topper for Belgian group Hooverphonic, who were previously in pole position back in June 2011 with “Anger Never Dies”. “Romantic” races up nine places to the top – while three of the other upwardly mobile hits this time advance eight places each. Henry Mancini’s theme from the “Pink Panther” movies becomes the latest release from the 1960s to reach the top twenty, more than fifty years after it was recorded, as it moves from 23 to 15 – but the other two big movers are much more recent releases. Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa go from 20 to 12 with their worldwide smash “One Kiss” - and Purple Disco Machine’s remake of Man Two Man Meets Man Parrish’s “Male Stripper” zooms from 17 to number nine. “Dished” isn’t the only new arrival in the top ten, however - as the most impressive of this month’s three brand new entries makes its debut one place higher for Dynoro and Gigi D’Agostino. Also spending a fortnight so far at number eight in the UK, “in My Mind” is the first ever hit there for the young Lithuanian producer and much older Italian DJ, singer and remixer – although the latter has had six previous successes in my top forty, including number ones with “Silence” and “The Summer Of Energy”.

The Russian/German DJ, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Anton Zaslavski has never reached number one in my chart – but has come pretty close with all four of his previous hits. For that is Zedd, who previously peaked at number two with “Clarity”, number three with “Stay The Night”, number four with “Break Free”, and most recently number four again with “I Want You To Know”. I’m not sure whether he operates a deliberate policy of only working once with any female vocalist, but all of these featured different singers – Jameela Jamil-lookalike Foxes, Paramore’s Hayley Williams, accolade-gathering Ariana Grande, and dance pop singer/actress Selena Gomez. His fifth hit, Happy Now”, is new at number 24, and features a much less well-known performer - singer/songwriter Elley Duhé, who was born in Alabama in 1992 but is now based in Los Angeles. That has already reached the top ten in the Netherlands, and is ascending the charts in other countries too – while an unusual release by Brazilian singer and producer MC Fioti, which has already had major success in France and Spain, sneaks in at 40. "Bum Bum Tam Tam" samples a Bach composition, “Partita In A Minor”, adding such truly inspring lyrics as:

Vai com o bum bum tam tam, Vem com o bum bum tam tam
Vai mexe o bum bum tam tam, Vem desce o bum bum tam tam
Vai mexe o bum bum tam tam, Vem desce o bum bum, Vai com o bum bum
Vem com o bum bum (com o bum bum, com o bum bum)

Meanwhile, the Gilde Duo needed no lyrics at all to spend sixteen months in my top forty – they arrived in July 2017, then climbed in twelve consecutive months to an eventual peak of number six, But “Muhle Im Schwarzwald” is now making a much quicker descent - diving ten places to number 29, that’s the fastest faller as well as the longest laster, among twenty-three hits on the way down this time. And it’s a most disappointing month for new music – with absolutely no eligible potential hits arriving in the breakers. The only track appearing there for the first time is a previously overlooked release from 1982, “Margate”. This was only a minor hit in the UK for pop rock/folk duo Chas and Dave – and returning alongside it are their six former successes in my top forty. Any or all of “In Sickness And In Health”, “Rabbit”, “Snooker Loopy”, “Wish I Could Write A Love Song”, “When Two Worlds Collide” and their biggest seller “Ain’t No Pleasing You” could re-enter the chart in the months ahead, following the sad death in the last fortnight of Chas Hodges, at the age of 74. But guaranteed a place in the next top forty is the highest climber into the top 100 of the extended chart. Moving from 101 to 61 on its way to becoming his fourth consecutive hit, and indeed his fourth consecutive Chartbuster, my Record of the Month for October 2018 features AU/RA and Tomine Harket. It’s Alan Walker, with “Darkside”.

Thanks again, Benny - yes, the state of current music just seems to be becoming more and more desperate. Nothing at all "new" impressed me last month, and there's nothing yet this month either. Such a decline since the retro years - of which this is the first for October. Twenty-eight years ago, I was entering the second half of a six-month secondment to London, and enjoying these hits from the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands and other parts of continental Europe :

I think the UK success of Cliff Richard's version of "From A Distance" at around this time must have reminded me of how much better Nanci Griffith's original was . . . . .

Now, halfway through another month, time for a trip to the (relatively) recent past as I update and expand a full annual chart. Continuing to move back one year every month, it's now 2008 - and I must admit that it doesn't feel like ten years since some of these were in my chart (plus, in most cases, sales and downloads charts around Europe). Of course, several stuck around until 2009 or even later, but still . . . . . Only one new hit and one new breaker from 2008 have arrived since I previously covered this year - but, as with other more recent years already featured, there were several other CD single purchases that I haven't mentioned before. And, as it becomes more and more difficult to find promising newer releases to include in the breakers nowadays, perhaps some of them will still get there in the months and years ahead !

'Pjanoo' is the track, man, this is among the dance anthems of 2008. Wonderful entries are 'Listen To The Voice Inside', 'Skankin', 'Live Your Life', 'Feel the Rush', 'Unforgivable', 'Forgive Me'. I like most of Gaga's songs here, except 'Lovegame' (this hit is great the way it is sung), in their remix versions, the original ones are way too boring.

Thanks for the comments ! :D

Benny wrote:05 10 03 TONIGHT New Kids On The Block
Several of the singles you picked out from October 1990 were, for me, by one-hit wonders - perhaps surprisingly, including this one ! Although New Kids On The Block had many other successes in the charts of the UK, Germany and elsewhere, "Tonight" was the only one that ever impressed me. It was on its way to a peak of number two, and a very good 160 in my all-time list.

Benny wrote:37 14 06 MILES AWAY Madonna
It's a real mystery to me how this flopped so badly in the UK - after over sixty hits, all of them reaching the top twenty, this could only get to number 39 even though it seemed to be well up to the standard of those that had made the top ten a few months or a couple of years earlier . . . . .

I suspect that some of the later ones you mentioned are relatively less well known on UKMix - and indeed in the UK, where they weren't hits ! But "Pjanoo" certainly did deservedly well - number two in the UK, some good peaks elsewhere too.

Oh, I have vivid memories of this. It's nice.
I discovered this one in the Belgian Ultratop 50, during its first year on MNM radio. I was a little surprised when it turned out to be the biggest selling hit of 2009 there that didn't reach number one - I thought that was more likely to be Paul and Fritz Kalkbrenner's "Sky And Sand". However, they were side by side at eight and nine in that country's chart of the year :
