There are eight climbers in my September 2018 chart – and one of the biggest is the new, and 234th, number one. July’s Chartbuster and August’s highest new entry races up thirteen places to the top for 22-year-old singer/songwriter Angele van Laeken, as “Je Veux Tes Yeux” becomes the second song in French to reach pole position this year. The only other newcomer last time, the very belated second success for Brotherhood of Man, climbs fourteen places to number 26, making “Beautiful Lover” this month’s Rapid Riser – while there are an impressive eight brand new entries. The highest, arriving at number ten, is “Romantic” - last month’s Chartbuster, and potentially a second chart-topper, for Hooverphonic – while two others make their debuts inside the top twenty. Three decades ago, Man Two Man Meets Man Parrish peaked at number 25 with “Male Stripper” – but a remake of this by Purple Disco Machine, “Dished”, instantly improves on that by eight places. Three spots lower, number 20 is the entry position for one of the biggest selling, most streamed songs of 2018 – “One Kiss” by Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa. It’s the third hit for the 34-year-old DJ and producer from Dumfries, Scotland, and the first not also involving Ellie Goulding. Perhaps an even more well known DJ, Avicii, gains a twelfth hit with “Without You”, one of his last releases before his death earlier this year. New at 31, it’s the second success in my chart featuring vocals by Sandro Cavazza – the first was “Beautiful Life”, one of two number ones by Lost Frequencies. The other, “Reality”, featured Janieck Devy – who now has a solo hit, “Does It Matter”, in at 36. Two of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest entries also sneak into the top forty – Belgium’s Sennek with “A Matter Of Time” at 38 and Moldova’s DoReDoS with “My Lucky Day” at 40 – while the final new entry is for someone who won the contest thirty-six years ago at the age of seventeen. Now a grandmother, but still releasing new albums almost every year, Nicole gets her thirty-second top forty entry. “Halt Dich Fest”, which only reached number 80 when originally released in 1998, now enters at number 36. Meanwhile, twenty-four tracks move down this month, including the longest laster from the Gilde Duo and the fastest faller by Ofenbach. “Muhle Im Schwarzwald” slides four places to number 19, making its fifteenth appearance, while “Be Mine” dives thirteen places to 39 after almost as long in the chart.

This month’s trawl through the archives for overlooked potential hits focuses once again on the year in which I originally discovered pop music – 1978. In the latter part of that year, Blondie, the Dooleys, the Motors, Olivia Newton-John and Dollar were doing well in the UK charts with “Picture This”, “A Rose Has To Die”, “Forget About You”, “Hopelessly Devoted To You” and “Shooting Star” respectively – and all of those now appear in the breakers for the first time, alongside five promising much more recent releases. Brazilian singer and producer MC Fioti has been charting all over the world with a variety of versions and remixes of “Bum Bum Tam Tam”, while the success of 53-year-old Dana Winner has been almost entirely in her Belgian homeland. Two out of her four previous breakers (and many, many single releases) have gone on to reach my top forty – and “Als Je Zingt”, a cover version of Tanita Tikaram’s “Good Tradition”, could become the third. “Faded”, “Alone” and “Sing Me To Sleep”, the three previous hits for Alan Walker were all former Chartbusters – but his latest offering is only the third highest new arrival in the breakers this time. That’s “Darkside”, featuring AU/RA and Tomine Harket. Just above that is the fifth breaker, and potentially the fifth hit, for Zedd – “Happy Now”, with vocals by American singer Elley Duhe. But the new Chartbuster, guaranteed to enter the top forty next time, will become the seventh hit for a 50-year-old DJ, remixer and producer from Turin, Italy. Two of the others, “Silence” and “The Summer Of Energy”, went all the way to number one in my chart much earlier this century – but, like all his other previous releases, did not dent the UK chart at all. However, this latest one, already topping the charts in some parts of continental Europe, has finally given him some significant success in the UK. Could the magic ingredient be the Lithuanian producer/remixer about which very little seems to be known? My Record of the Month for September 2018 is Dynoro and Gigi D’Agostino, with “In My Mind”.

Now, there were an unusually high number of new entries in this month's chart - eight - but, in years gone by, there were occasions on which many more than that arrived all at once ! And an example can be seen in the first retro chart for September - going back to when I was twenty-two old, beginning my second year of full-time work, and also studying hard for the first of my professional exams. Meanwhile, I discovered a lot of impressive new singles, many of them from the charts of continental Europe. Thirty-two years ago, this is the music I was enjoying:

Thanks again, Benny - perhaps surprisingly, "Live To Tell" was one of Madonna's least successful hits on my chart. Generally her later works, and some of the less successful songs in the UK, fared better. Here's the full ranking of her twenty-nine chart entries:

Thanks again, Benny - looking back, I didn't really rate much of Madonna's earliest work at all. "Live To Tell" was actually the first of her singles to reach my chart - and "Dear Jessie" was the second, more than three years later. Of the eleven singles in between them, only "Like A Prayer" was a breaker - and of the ten that came before "Live To Tell", the only one I bought was "Material Girl" !

Now, this month's "recent" retro year was one in which Madonna "celebrated" her joint highest peak on my chart. Since I posted this annual list the first time, only Agnes Obel has added a new hit - and it went all the way to number one! - and the Asteroids Galaxy Tour had a belated breaker (when their album was eventually released on vinyl!). So there's very little change to the hits and breakers - but I've added in all of my other purchases from the year in question. Once again, in many cases I'm now thinking, "why did I buy this?" - although if my recent difficulties in finding impressive new releases continue, some of them could be brought into the breakers in the months and years ahead. Nine years ago, this is the music I was enjoying . . . . .

Ah . . . . . you're right, of course ! It looks as if this must have been wrong in some, most or all of my files ever since its release - I'll need to make the necessary corrections at some point.

I suppose this also reveals that I sometimes find it difficult to tell the difference between featured rappers - and, more often than not, I rather feel that the songs would be better without them . . . . .

Now, here's the second monthly retro chart for September - and the first one, just over a year since I had begun compiling a monthly chart, in which there was a new entry at number one. I was sixteen years old, in my first month in the sixth form at school, and only studying subjects I actually wanted to ! Another improvement was that all the school bullies and disruptive elements had finally left, hopefully finding other outlets for their thuggish tendencies. And I was enjoying the chart show of the UK on Sunday afternoons - while the Irish one was temporarily off air, but was about to return! Thirty-eight years ago - before, I suspect the vast majority of UKmix members were born ! - this was the music I was listening to . . . . .

I like all these, especially Johnny Logan's ESC winner. Did his other ESC winner, 'Hold Me Now' from 1987, also enter your chart?

I've never really followed the US charts at all - I did try briefly, probably at around the time Ottawan were having massive success in the UK and most of Europe. But it seemed to be a different genre of music that was finding favour there - not the kind that I really liked. I don't think much Euro pop or Euro dance was ever finding its way there - certainly nowhere near the top end.

Benny wrote:I like all these, especially Johnny Logan's ESC winner. Did his other ESC winner, 'Hold Me Now' from 1987, also enter your chart?
It did - but only for one month, and during the period in which my chart was a top fifty ! "Hold Me Now" was at number 45 in my chart of August 1987 - much less successful than "What's Another Year", which stayed in for nine months and peaked at number nine.

Although I don't think any of them travelled any further than Ireland, he had nine other top thirty hits there. The only one I believe I'd have the slightest chance of recognising if I heard it again now would be his cover version of one of 10cc's biggest successes - "I'm Not In Love".

Interesting, I always thought that he was a two-hit wonder!

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 :

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.

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 :
