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!

I don't know if you know his version - it never charted, and may not have been released as a single, though it received a lot of airplay at the time, to the extent that it has totally usurped the original in my mind - but Brendan Grace did a parody version.

I mentioned this only a few days ago on The Apprentice thread! (One of the final five is a certain Mr. Eastwood). I searched for it online too and couldn't find it either! RIP Dermot.

He's in the news here this week - he's going for new hair transplants.

A great song, written by the English husband-and-wife team of Paul and June Colclough after a trip to the Dingle Peninsula. It's been recorded by a plethora of artists down through the years, my favourite being Mary Black's recording from 1983 when she was with De Danann, from their album of the same name - but surprisingly, only The Barleycorn ever released the track as a single.

Though songs like 'Walk Like An Egyptian' were in facts big commercial hits later in 1986.
But this are all excellent songs,those were the days.

Both Belgian acts, of course - although I heard them in the Dutch TROS Top 50 back then. "Lena" also entered the Nationale Hitparade - peaking one place higher, at 39 - but it didn't quite reach the Nederlandse Top 40. "What's My Name" was actually released later on in the UK. However, despite its "James Bond" references, it only managed four weeks in the top 100 (99 93 94 95) - so it wasn't officially a hit here.....

Oh dear..... "My heart is in Holland, my lungs are in New York, my liver's in London, my brain is in Bangkok, I hear that my kidneys are somewhere in Sydney....." Very good! I'd never heard of this version before. I don't think it was a single - and, although I've only just searched briefly, I haven't even found any evidence that it was on any of his albums either. It's certainly not on a three-CD compilation I bought a few years ago, primarily for his "Teddy Bear" parody "Bottler On CB" - but this was pretty much entirely "Bottler"-related songs.

And then I find this....

b) it's in the wrong year - as stated above, it's from the 1983 album "Song For Ireland"
I think here that you've exposed not only another anomaly in my mid-1980s year allocations (I will have to look into these again at some stage when I have more time, to ensure that the hits are divided by year as appropriately as possible, while not allowing more than 100 in each!) but a flaw in my supporting files. These record that I have this track on a 7" single as well as an LP and CD - but I can find no reference to any further detail, such as a catalogue number, that would confirm this. I have even checked my index-card system (which I haven't updated for several years - there's something else to add to the "to do" list!) and there's no indication on the relevant card there either. I suspect that you are quite right, and this is one of (very few of) my hits from the 1980s that isn't on a 7" single!





irishguy28 wrote: ONLY LOVE Nana Mouskouri ##

I loved this at the time!!! Here's what I believe to be the original video.
The interesting thing about this one was that, for some reason, there were two different releases of it at the same time in the UK - some time after its success in the Netherlands charts, where I heard it first. I think the version on Carrere Records was the same one that had charted elsewhere, while the Phillips one (a slightly different recording, especially at the end) might have been from a UK album, I'm not sure! Combined together, it did well to reach number two in the UK. And number one for a week in Ireland..... One of the nine tracks not on YouTube from this year, KARLEKEN Johnny Wendelnas, is a Swedish version of the same song - which I received by chance as part of a "20 obscure continental singles of our choice for a fiver" deal or something like that, from Oldies Unlimited.....I haven't thought about them for years! I, and no doubt many others, used to be sent monthly catalogues of singles at rock-bottom prices.....

Not the only music from the Norwegian group to find its way into ongoing use elsewhere - for as long as I can remember, Radio 538 have used a segment of "The Living Daylights" as the backing for their revelation of the new Alarmschijf at about 1550 (European time) on Friday afternoons!

Indeed...much, much later, though as a different song, and credited instead to Rihanna feat. Drake!

:wink: :D

Perhaps "Song For Ireland" by Dé Danann was released as a single - though its absence from the Irish Top 30 would make me think that it wasn't released in Ireland. To be honest, I'm a little surprised that the only version that charted was by The Barleycorn, hence my assumption that they were the only ones to hit upon the idea of releasing the track as a single. I'm biased, of course, but I wouldn't consider their version in anyway definitive (Dé Danann, Dick Gaughan, and Luke Kelly all recorded far superior versions).

If you do find evidence of it having been released on single, pleae PM me (I may miss it if it is merely mentioned in this thread). And if you can think why you might have "noticed" the track, and charted it, in the absence of a single, I'd also love to know.

I should correct a mistake I made earlier - the songwriter was Phil(ip), not Paul, Colclough.

Will do - although I fear that it may be months, if not years, before I have the opportunity to open the currently rather inaccessible record boxes in which the single would be, if it exists (and I now strongly suspect that it doesn't!)

That, I can answer straight away! It was a track on a compilation LP that I must have bought in order to obtain some other Irish hit not otherwise on release in the UK - which, knowing of both the song and the group, I listened to, liked and charted! No doubt that was in 1985, hence its allocation to the wrong year.....

I wrote:Lady Gaga.....with “The Edge Of Glory”, a current hit from her latest album.....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.
So for this month's second trip back in time, it's only a few short steps back to the final year of the "noughties", which ended less than nineteen months ago. (It feels like longer!) Although two tracks from 2009 are still in my top forty breakers, it now seems certain that neither of them will improve on their current peaks - and the last two hits originating from that year dropped out of the top forty at the beginning of this month, so its overall chart can now be finalised. For all the preceding years in the second half of this decade, fewer than a hundred tracks reached the breakers, and to complete annual top hundreds I had to add some further CD singles I bought. However, 2009 saw a marked improvement - with a grand total of 114 breakers. So I extended today's retro countdown to a seven-hour YouTube journey covering them all!

Sixty-four of the breakers went on to enter my top forty, half of those reached the top ten, and fifteen peaked in the top three - including seven number ones. Anyone who has followed this thread in recent years will have seen those come and go, in this order - Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Little Boots, Fake Blood, Dash Berlin, Bananarama, Lady GaGa and finally Caro Emerald - so these ought to be the strongest contenders for the top track of the year. However, it was a very close battle at the top between (most of) these and some of the other major successes from 2009. Could something else that didn't get to number one manage to beat all of those that did? If so, it would have to be something special. A most unusual, distinctive worldwide hit - maybe even a collaboration between a Romanian and a Russian? There can't be many of those.....can there?
