Thanks to everyone for the comments!

Yes, I noticed that the Hooverphonic single was charting in Italy recently - I wonder how much further it can travel? It still seems to be getting a lot of radio airplay in Belgium, even though it is now dropping right down the chart.

Unfortunately, in the last fortnight the Anna Rossinelli single has plummeted right down the Swiss chart: 03 -> 37 -> 63 !

Now then.....

So, the first trip through time with YouTube this month unfortunately has to be somewhat shorter than normal - two hours rather than the usual five and a half or six - as it's all the way back to 1976! Thirty-five years ago, I was eleven years old - and, as far as I remember, wasn't ever listening to music on the radio at all. I doubt that I even saw "Top Of The Pops" on the television - although, of course, those very editions are being repeated at present on BBC FOUR. I was almost certainly not encouraged to do such things - but instead to concentrate on my schoolwork, as "O" levels were only a few years away.....

However, I did discover and buy some records from 1976 in later years. How many? Well, it has been quite difficult and time-consuming to work this out in the last few days - as not only were a lot of tracks designated in my files only as "1976 or earlier", but I discovered that everything allocated to "1977" might as well have been "1977 or earlier", as many of those were actually from other mid-1970s years too! Despite frequently contradictory indications on the internet, I feel that I have now finally identified the "correct" release years for everything that pre-dates my monthly charts - but, as always, if anyone spots anything that still looks wrong, do please let me know.....

In recently preparing the index to my charts, I took a guess that the earliest individual years for which I would be able to put together annual charts of a reasonable length would be 1975, 1976 and 1977 - and indeed this looks to be the case. From 1974 and earlier, less than fifty hits in total have reached the monthly charts - and not many more than that reached the breakers, or "would" have done. I should hopefully just about be able to present a Top 50 of the 1960s and earlier at some point, and also a longer chart combining the first half of the 1970s. But for now, it's the Top 34 (!) of 1976 - the 12 charted tracks from that year, plus the 22 others that I bought.....

Only 34 songs but so many classics: Abba's 3 monster singles from the "Arrival" album, Smokie's biggest hit ever, Boney M's first charttopper, the Eurovision Song Contest winner of that year and my favourite song from the "Evita" musical. :D
Regarding "Ein Bett im Kornfeld", it's the German version of "Let Your Love Flow" by the Bellamy Brothers. I definitely prefer the original, I don't like Jürgen Drews at all. He started his career in the early 70s with the "Les Humphries Singers" which were quite good actually but later he turned into one of the most embarrassing German singers. You still see him on TV from time to time, he's a kind of c-list celebrity who would do anything to get some media attention.

It certainly is - as used at the beginning of the Kenny Everett shows from Thames Television later on the the 1970s, after which it became a hit!





potojr wrote:09 20 02 I'VE NEVER BEEN TO ME Charlene

No idea this was from 1976.

Another of a few songs in this list that charted in the UK or elsewhere upon later re-release - and entered my charts at much the same time! Those also include Red Sovine "Teddy Bear" (which I've just voted for in the 1981 retro thread - the popularity of CB radio around then caused this to resurface at that point) and Smokie's "....Alice", which charted with me much later, at the time of their and Gompie's remakes.





potojr wrote:31 ---- --- MORE MORE MORE Andrea True Connection

Ha, the porn girl! :D

I never knew about that until very recently!!! :o

Something else that I discovered for the first time in researching/checking what years all these earliest releases should go in was that "Mr Walkie-Talkie" (whose track would be recognisable to many in the UK, even though it was never a hit there, as the theme from
Kick Start, the early evening motorcycle-obstacle-course programme) was actually
Drafi Deutscher under yet another name! And I also learned that he wrote another song in my top ten of this year - Tina Rainford's "Silver Bird".

While he was evidently extremely well-known for decades in Germany, however, it struck me that he had probably almost never been seen on UK television.....the only definite instance I can recall being in a clip from It'll Be Alright On The Night in which he stumbled down a staircase while recording a performance of Mixed Emotions' "You Want Love".

Your further observations tie in with what I recall of seeing him on German television! I prefer the Bellamy Brothers' original too - but in researching the years, I discovered scans of two different releases of "Let Your Love Flow", both of which were dated 1975 - so that had to make a very belated exit into the prior year. It will turn up there at some point in the months ahead, when 1975 is featured - along with another track which I had also mistakenly included in 1976, right up until this week. Oddly enough, that one was the subject of an almost certainly much more well-known It'll Be Alright On The Night out-take. All will be revealed (well, maybe not as much as accidentally appeared on that occasion ) in a further retro chart.....

Ancient, compared with most here! :D



There was a clue in the introduction to this retro chart:

I wrote:1976! Thirty-five years ago, I was eleven years old....
A while ago, I discovered a website in which you could find out who was the most famous person that was born on the same day as you. In my case, it was at least a name I recognised:

Same here,a product of the late 60's.
Born when 'Abbey Road - Beatles' topped
the Uk Album Chart.

I remember from 1976,that my Auntie
bought the records of that time,and
i had permission to play them on
her record player...Abba was her favourite.

I wrote:Back in 2000, Ann Lee was at number one and number two in my chart with “Voices” and “Two Times” - and it looked possible that this might be the first time since then that exactly the same act took the top two places.
Mindful that the previous retro year selected this month would have to be a considerably shorter chart than usual, I managed (just this once!) to pick alongside it a year with which I knew I would be able to compensate for this to some extent. It's a year in which more singles reached my top forty breakers than almost any other - indeed, only the mid-1990s previously saw my music buying rise to such a high level. I identified no less than 156 potential future hits from this year, and only three of them are not now available on YouTube. That leaves 153 which fitted snugly into a nine-hour marathon for an extended trip back in time today, to the first year of this new millennium - 2000 !

Back then, I was still in the "pre-internet" days (even if others were not!) and most closely in touch with the UK and German charts on television and radio - so the vast majority of my selections here were successes (but not necessarily major ones) in those countries. Much of the top end will look very familiar to regular participants in the 2000/2001 threads in the Retro forum - as almost everything appeared on its playlist, and their actual positions in my all-time ranking (descending month-by-month, as some current hits manage to overtake all but the very highest ones) can be seen there. However, there may be more surprises further down - another reason for extending the feature this time to cover all of the 2000 breakers! Hopefully it's not just a triumph of quantity over quality.....

As far as my monthly top forty charts of the year were concerned, eighty tracks qualified - a much higher total than any year since then, and also surpassing eight out of the ten years of the previous decade. Twelve of them went all the way to number one - including six former Records of the Month - so they must be among the strongest contenders for the top track of the year. Both ATC and Sash! took pole position with two ex-Chartbusters.....and 2000 was not the only year from which there were chart-toppers from Alizee, Dario G, Enya and Ian Van Dahl. Or could my only number ones by Baha Men, Black Box Recorder or Commercial Breakup beat all rivals? Maybe it's a "Victory" for instrumentalists Bond? Without further ado, let's find out!

The Lone Ranger:

The label's MD, Jeremy Thomas, felt that the song "The Lone Ranger" was a potential hit single if only it had something more "interesting" for the intro. Hine picked up on his remark and sang the longest word in the world (listed in The Guinness Book of Records) a capella, replacing the original intro to the song altogether.[1] The word in question, taken from the language of the Maori, New Zealand's indigenous people, was the name of a hill in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. On the record, the word (made to sound as if it were Native American, in keeping with the Lone Ranger and Tonto theme) is chanted as follows:

Taumata-whaka-tangi-hanga-kuayuwo
tamate-aturi-pukaku-piki-maunga
horonuku-pokaiawhen-uaka-tana-tahu
mataku-atanganu-akawa-miki-tora

"The Lone Ranger" was first released as a single in 1976. After it was chosen as Tony Blackburn's "Record of the Week" (the nationwide morning radio show with the highest ratings in the UK at the time), it was banned - some fragments of lyrics were deemed to have "drug" and "homosexual" references. The BBC stopped playing the record and it failed to chart as a result. This, added to disillusion with the length of time it had taken to get the original record deal and the lack of any really cohesive management, resulted in guitarist Mark Warner's decision to leave and join Cat Stevens' live band.
The band would however make an unexpected return two years later, when a re-release of the "Lone Ranger" single became an unexpected hit. The song had been widely played by Kenny Everett on both his radio and TV shows. Re-released in 1979, it eventually reached number 5 in the UK Singles Chart.[2] The band (including Mark Warner) reconvened for an appearance on Top of the Pops.
Great track - as is Alizee for 2000!

Interesting! I never knew it had been derailed from becoming a hit first time around in this way.
Then again, maybe being a "record of the week" with one of the country's most influential DJs wasn't a guarantee of success back then. In the "Top of The Pops" of just over 35 years ago, repeated last night and again tomorrow late-night on BBC FOUR, Noel Edmonds introduced his then record of the week, by.....The Surprise Sisters !

There is only one non-mover in my top forty this month - former Chartbuster “Chasing Dreams” makes a fifth appearance at number eleven for Sebastian Cruz and Miryel, the highest of just five tracks in the chart not available on vinyl. So there is another brand new number one, coming from the third Belgian act to rise to the top this year! The title track from the latest album by electropunk band Goose (Mickael Karkousse, Dave Martijn, Tom Coghe, and Bert Libee), “Synrise”, becomes my 185th chart-topper, climbing eight places from its number nine debut in June. Only five other singles are moving up this time - including last month’s Rapid Riser by Katie Melua, and the former Chartbuster from Kate Ryan. “The Flood” advances another nine places to number fourteen - while “LoveLife” is just below that, up three at fifteen.

After sticking at its number five entry position last time, Alexandra Stan’s “Mr Saxobeat” now slides up to number four, but there are three stronger potential future number ones elsewhere in the top ten. Agnes Obel races up ten places to number three with “Riverside” - not many Danish acts have ever gone higher - but the Rapid Riser is Lady GaGa, as “Judas” clambers up all of thirty places to number ten. And it is the very same artist who has the highest of this month’s five new entries - with “The Edge Of Glory”, a current hit from her latest album, she crashes straight in at number five. Although “Dance In The Dark” and “Born This Way” continue to only make sluggish progress towards the top forty, and “LoveGame” peaked at a dismal 119, this brings her total of hits to eight - all reaching the top ten. The first still remains the biggest - “Poker Face” was my number one in April and May 2009.

Martin Solveig was number one much more recently with “Hello” - and now follows it up with “Ready 2 Go”, on which he has teamed up with Kele rather than Dragonette. That’s new at 25, seven places higher than the latest hit for Armin van Buuren - “Drowning”, featuring vocalist Laura V. All five of his previous successes have reached my top five - can this do likewise? Gianna Nannini has never been in my top five, but I began searching for the earliest of her four previous chart entries as long ago as 1985 - that was “Fotoromanza”. Decades later, “Ogni Tanto” returns her to my top forty, at number 40. Not far above that, among twenty-eight hits descending, are the fastest faller and longest laster - “Barbra Streisand” by Duck Sauce at 38, and “We No Speak Americano” from Yolanda Be Cool and D-Cup at 37 - but there is better news for last month‘s Chartbuster. Anna Rossinelli‘s “In Love For A While” is new at 19, becoming the eightieth Eurovision Song Contest entry to reach my chart - but only the fifth from Switzerland.

Meanwhile, in a poor month for new releases, there are just six new potential future hits. Alex Gaudino is looking for a first top forty entry with his second breaker, “What A Feeling” - with vocals by Kelly Rowland, who previously peaked at number four in my chart with David Guetta on “When Love Takes Over”. Both Coldplay and Owl City could be on the way to their third hits, with “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” and “Alligator Sky” respectively - while Shakira has already reached my top forty seven times, with four of her hits peaking at number two. “Rabiosa” might be her next success - but the two strongest new breakers this month are both by American acts impressing me for the first time. Fourteen-year-old Rebecca Black has already charted in at least six countries with “Friday”, despite receiving widespread criticism - but it’s a twenty-four-year-old singer-songwriter from Philadelphia who has the new Chartbuster, guaranteed to enter my top forty in August. Although originally released in America almost exactly a year ago, her single has only more recently spread to Europe and other parts of the world. My Record of the Month for July 2011 is Christina Perri, with “Jar Of Hearts”.

Not at all, really - I had heard that the original had been withdrawn, but there were at least a few further uploads of the track available on YouTube!

I had to wait, however, for an official physical release - which I received a couple of weeks ago. Its inventive, and no doubt somewhat meaningful, catalogue number is MARMITE 001.....

Strange how you never linked the actual video!
Is that actually official? Sanctioned by Rebecca (as Ark Music technically don't own it)?

In one of the most convoluted, contrived references ever, I wrote:Gianna Nannini has never been in my top five, but I began searching for the earliest of her four previous chart entries as long ago as 1985 - that was “Fotoromanza”.
So, 1985 is the first completely randomly-chosen (!) retro year this month - and it's the one in which I reached the age of 21. In theory, or by tradition, I should have received the "key of the door" - but, in practice, I completed my degree and began full-time work. This probably meant that I had rather more time to listen to music between those events - the end of May to the end of August - although I'm not sure that this is really reflected in the spread of my hits from this year. Partly by attaching a number of radios and cassette recorders to timer-switches, I was tuning in throughout 1985 to the various broadcasts of the Europarade, and to the chart shows of several of the countries included therein - the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Austria and (when possible) Germany. So the vast majority of my choices had at least some success in one or more of these charts - although there also seem to be at least a dozen television theme tunes!

Back then, my monthly chart was a top fifty, and exactly one hundred 1985 tracks entered - subject to, as previously mentioned, some slight blurring of where each mid-eighties year began and ended. One particularly unfortunate effect of this, I now see, is that I charted three tracks from the same Bangles album - but only two of them are here, as the third has already been allocated to 1986 ! There may be other anomalies too - but hopefully not too many. I must admit, I was quite surprised today to discover that some of what I thought were the more obscure tracks actually were available on YouTube - but, regrettably, nine of the top hundred are not there. So, to fill the usual six-hour session, I included, throughout (but especially in the third hour, covering only positions 60 to 48), several extended versions instead of the shorter / more famiiar radio edits. And now - here they all are!
