~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


More recently known as the Euro Hit 40, the Europarade was a chart combining the weekly charts of various European countries into a single countdown..It was first compiled and aired in May 1976, and was broadcasted weekly on a variety of AM/FM radio stations around the continent until the beginning of 1994. The main weekly shows were those of TROS-Radio on Hilversum 3, and on SR-1 Europawelle - the former were the original compilers, but by the end of this period, responsibility had shifted to the latter - and the charts and other details which are now going to be presented in a series of these threads, each covering a three-year period, are primarily from notes made while listening to these broadcasts, and others, during these years.

Changes in the basis of compilation - and indeed the presentation of the weekly programmes - will be mentioned at appropriate points of the various threads. However, the main raw material for the chart was the top fifteen positions of each major country's weekly singles chart, combined on a points system. Each chart-topper received 15 points, each number two received 14 points, and so on down to each number 15 receiving 1 point.

Initially, only six countries were combined into the Europarade - Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain and the UK. During 1979, Denmark and Italy were added; during 1980, Austria and Switzerland; and in 1983 Ireland wa added. From that point on (and, therefore, the majority of the period covered here) the Europarade was a top 40 chart based on the charts of these eleven countries. 1983 was also the year in which the length of the chart was increased from a top 30 to a top 40.

I will try to update at least a couple of these threads with a couple of weeks each day if possible - but there is some incompleteness/uncertainty in the notes - so corrections and other observations will be very gratefully received. For at least part of this period, virtually all the constituent charts are now accessible in various places, so it may be possible to completely analyse the occasional chart into its points totals from each and every country - but to do this for every chart would involve far too much extra work. However, as some of the Europarade presenters used to mention every country in which each hit was charting, those details will usually accompany the weekly charts on these threads.

The first time I heard any part of the Europarade was on Sunday, 16th January 1983. As I found the show by chance on Hilversum-3 at around 11.40am (UK time), the number 20 hit by Musical Youth was playing - and when it became clear what I had discovered, out came the notebook, and I listed all the further tracks played and chart details mentioned. The major surprise was that the number one was a track I had never previously heard of! From the following week onwards, I was sure to tune in from the beginniung of the two-hour show (11.00pm UK time). The presenter was Ad Roland, and after beginning with the short "Eurovision" theme, it was then a straightforward run through all 30 hits, ending with the number one. The show then ended with short snippets of the American top 10, and a little more of America's number one. The jingles for this segment were in English, whereas those for the rest of the show were mainly in Dutch, although there were some in other languages too. In particular, there were multi-language introductions for the new entries - "MUZIK AUS DEUTSCHLAND!! NEU IN DER EUROPARADE" / "Et maintenant, musique de La France - Nouveau dans l'Europarade" and so on. This format remained unchanged for quite some time.



A few posts down, the charts will now begin, from the start of 1983. :D

With thanks to francisplaiy for the above corrections, and the first two charts of 1983, below.

I have now amended the third and fourth weeks, and moved them to after the first two weeks below, so from now on we can continue in the right order!

I think by seeing his chart- and weekruns in the chart that 'DER KOMMISSAR' of FALCO must be one of the greatest Europarade songs ever made.

Could possibly be Dorothée with "Hou La Menteuse", she was in French top 5 around that time.

What's the significance of the 4-day date period above the last few charts? The 2 dates that the same chart was broadcast on the two different stations(TROS/SR-1, the latter being the station I discovered this chart on in 1989)?

Yes, each week's chart was broadcast on various stations on different days, Thursday-Sunday. (For a rather brief period later on, TROS were the last to broadcast it, at lunchtime on Mondays on a different radio station)

I think the SR-1 broadcast was only ever on Saturdays/Sundays.

30 ---- 01 NENA - 99 LUFTBALLONS (D)

As the weekly show had begun with Trio every single time since I'd heard it in full, it seemed strange for someone else finally to be at number 30 this week!!

The new entry at #20 is a Dutch-language cover version of the song by Renee and Renato which is four places above it in this week's chart.

I don't have the chart on that date,but a quick look in the German charts says that 99luftballons reached nr2 and Nur getraumt is nowhere to be seen.

I'm wondering now if the Ö3-Hitparade was used for the Austrian chart at this point - it certainly was later on - because a number one there from January 1983 - Drahdiwaberl & Lukas Resetarits "Lonely" - doesn't seem to have reached the Europarade, yet Nena "Nur Getraumt" seems to have charted from Austria alone, but was almost always a place or two lower.......

However, it does seem that "Nur Getraumt" was too far down the Austrian chart by now, so "99 Luftballons" is more likely, and I've now amended that week's chart accordingly.

I noticed that too and thought that maybe the Musikmarkt Top 30 (although only bi-weekly back then) was used instead, but the data doesn't fit with that one either.

Very belated note:

Now that the "weeks on chart" have been amended up to this point for the earlier history we didn't know when we began the threads, it can be seen that, as cavefan noted elsewhere, Falco's Europarade run with "Der Kommissar" ended here on an incredible total of 52 weeks - which would not be equalled for several years!!
