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”.

I've completely lost interest in current music, that's why I only like the older songs

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 . . . . .
