What was the solo re-recording of "Roxanne" featured here?

Has anyone else previously had the Top 2, as Haircut 100 did on 17th March?

"A live solo version performed by Sting from the 1982 album The Secret Policeman's Other Ball received moderate airplay on album-oriented rock radio and reached number 28 on the Billboard Top Tracks chart."

Thanks #toobloodylazytocheckwikipedia

(and maybe I just don't like the song enough)

Can we assume that "Ever So Lonely" (which doesn't get enough love even among the most loyal early-82 pop freaks, and I fear I know the reasons) took off in London first? It was thriving in the Hitline before it had made the official Top 75.

Interesting that "Ring Ring" (which was a reissued old single on a different label I think?) made the Hitline but "Give Me Back My Heart" didn't.

This is the first time I can remember that they still had Hitlines on Bank Holidays. Manilow's fans must have been *really* dedicated and obsessive to keep voting him top, week after week after week ... shows the fallability of this system compared to a sales chart. (I know that is the case some people, especially here, make against streaming in charts, but criticising Manilow has no racist or classist elements attached to it, unlike a lot of the anti-streaming arguments.)
