    I'm loving seeing these in your bubblers. Did these never make your chart at the time, they're all from 1999?

    32 [ 40 ] MATERIAL GIRL Madonna <---
    33 [ 35 ] THE BEST Tina Turner <---

    Those last two are older than Baby one more time.
    It's almost a year and a half now since I made the decision to add some previously unlisted much older tracks into the breakers every month, as a result of the declining availability of physical singles and albums and a noticeable reduction in the number of new tracks I felt were good enough to buy at all ! I'm glad that some of these are proving popular with others too. No, none of those UK chart-toppers from 1999 even reached the breakers back then - partly as there were so many other more promising tracks that did. In the month of March 1999, for example, there were twenty-five new breakers - nowadays there might not be many more than this in a whole year.

    I'm loving this, i entered this into the FSC earlier in the year and won. I really didn't think it would be that popular so i was amazed at how well received the song was.

    33 ---- 01 PRAYING Kesha

    Better late than ever. Does this mean you've managed to buy Praying as a physical single or did you buy Kesha's album?

    01 [ 00 ] FEEL IT STILL Portugal. The Man [Chartbuster] ##

    Ohh i would love to see Feel it still breakthrough into your main chart. Does this also mean you've bought the single/album? Excellent choice for your record of the month.
    I see that Ofenbach are now doing well in some countries with a follow-up, "Katchi" - but as "Be Mine" never made it to the UK, I don't suppose that will either . . . . . I have managed to buy a CD single of "Praying" - but the only vinyl release of it seems to be on her album, so of course I also had to buy the LP . . . . . and I currently have the LP and 7" single of "Feel It Still" on order from the USA. If they arrive by the end of this month, it will be eligible for a top ten new entry; if not, it will not be allowed to enter higher than number eleven. However, because it's the record of the month, it will definitely be in the chart somewhere next time ! There doesn't seem to be a CD single available of this one, but it will no doubt be available on a reasonably priced compilation CD at some point.

    I did once post a full list of Kylie's breakers - but that was in 2008, and she has had eight more since then, bringing her total to twenty-five! Only five acts have ever had more breakers than this. Here's a fully updated version of that summary of how they all have fared:

    25  Nov-2010 374  120 --  115 of 2010   4103   GET OUTTA MY WAY
    So seventeen of her breakers have gone on into the chart . . . . . ten of them reached the top ten, and nine of those are in my top 1000 of all-time ! But no, she has never had a number one, nor even reached the top three - "Got To Be Certain", "If You Were With Me Now" and "All The Lovers" came closest, all peaking at number four.

    That peak for Can't get you out of my head though! Did you really not like that song as one month at #100 seems incredibly harsh.

    Well, "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" actually spent four months at number 100 - its full run in the extended chart was

    120 112 112 112 108 100 100 100 100 106 109

    so it was in the top forty breakers for the first nine of those months (disappearing as soon as it moved down) - but in comparison with many of her other singles, I felt that it was a bit dull and repetitive. Perhaps that is partly why it did so well in the UK ! ( afterthought: actually, I seem to recall that the video was probably very helpful? ) I've just had a look at what was above it in its final month at 100, to see if it might have maybe been a little under-rated at a time when there was a lot of competition . . . . .

    . . . . . there really were a lot of very good singles (to me!) around at that time, compared with now - but also quite a few Eurodance cover versions of earlier releases.

    . . . . . there really were a lot of very good singles (to me!) around at that time, compared with now - but also quite a few Eurodance cover versions of earlier releases.
    Oh wow, so you love european music then, i don't recognise the majority of that list.

    From the songs i know, i like these:

    003 ( 002 ) WHITE FLAG...........................................Dido
    011 ( 012 ) THE CLOSEST THING TO CRAZY....................Katie Melua
    026 ( 016 ) FOREVER AND FOR ALWAYS.......................Shania Twain
    039 ( 036 ) LOVE PROFUSION....................................Madonna
    046 ( 043 ) FLY ON THE WINGS OF LOVE XTM and DJ Chucky presents Annia
    056 ( 055 ) OBJECTION (TANGO).................................Shakira
    057 ( 057 ) BEAUTIFUL..............................Christina Aguilera
    058 ( 053 ) I'M ALIVE.....................................Celine Dion
    066 ( 062 ) THE KETCHUP SONG (ASEREJE)....................Las Ketchup
    067 ( 067 ) POINT OF VIEW................................DB Boulevard
    070 ( 070 ) WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME......................Christina Milian
    075 ( 073 ) I BEGIN TO WONDER..........................Dannii Minogue
    080 ( 080 ) AMERICAN LIFE.....................................Madonna
    081 ( 077 ) YOU'RE A SUPERSTAR..............................Love Inc.
    083 ( 063 ) MR VAIN......................................Culture Beat
    096 ( 095 ) UNDERNEATH YOUR CLOTHES...........................Shakira
    100 ( 100 ) CAN'T GET YOU OUT OF MY HEAD................Kylie Minogue

    White flag was amazing, so its great to see Dido did well. Shame it wasn't a UK #1 as this would appear in my top 100 countdown had it qualified.

    And already it's time for the first retro chart of November - from the year in which I began full time work, at the age of 21. I used timer-switches to record the radio broadcasts of the chart shows of various European countries while I was out - and these were the hits I was enjoying thirty-two years ago, as we approached the end of 1985.....

    Thanks again, Benny - with the possible exception of "Spanish Eddie", I think all of those others are still getting significant radio airplay in the UK and continental Europe thirty-two years later !

    Time now for the second retro chart of this month - and a return to when I was fifteen, in the fifth form at school, and only tuning in to the chart shows of the UK and Ireland. Here's what I was enjoying all those decades ago - probably before most members of this forum were even born ! - in November 1979 . . . . .

    'Maybe' is beautiful. It was a huge number one hit in Germany because it was the theme song to a TV series. It wasn't as successful in the UK though, only reaching number 14.

    Thanks again, Benny - that series wasn't as widely networked in the UK, I think some regions just showed it occasionally on weekday afternoons, It must have been in a better timeslot on one of the main German channels, also viewable in Austria (where the theme reached number two) and Switzerland (number eight).








    Just two new entries back in that month of 1979 - and now . . . . . yes, just two new entries in my last chart of 2017!

    Their second hit of the twenty-first century, and their twelfth in total, becomes the first number one for Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) this month. “One More Time” is one of eleven climbers in the top forty, moving up four places to become my 230th chart-topper, and it’s also one of no fewer than six former Chartbusters now in the top ten. The others include last month’s top two from Earl and Ofenbach – “Tongue Tied” and “Be Mine” both dive five places, landing at six and seven respectively. But Harry Styles rises six places to number eight with “Sign Of The Times”, and Axwell ^ Ingrosso advance another five places to number four with “More Than You Know”. Possibly the strongest challenger to become the first number one of 2018, however, is November’s Chartbuster from Portugal. The Man – “Feel It Still” comes straight in to the chart at number five. The only other new entry is by someone who previously reached number one with “Just So” – the 37-year-old singer-songwriter from Denmark, Agnes Obel. “It’s Happening Again” arrives at number twenty-six. Among twenty-seven hits on the way down, Hooverphonic have the fastest faller this time, as “You” tumbles nine places to number 27, and Marco Z continues to be the longest laster with “Fill My Life Up”. That slides five places to 37 in its fifteenth, and possibly final, month in the top forty. Meanwhile, the Rapid Riser is Kesha, racing up eighteen places to number 15 with “Praying”.

    1991 is the year providing five previously overlooked potential hits for the top forty breakers this month – although it would have been difficult to overlook Bryan Adams’ “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You” back then, as it spent sixteen weeks at number one in the UK. Very successful too elsewhere in Europe were “Bacardi Feeling” from Kate Yanai and “Desenchantee” by Mylene Farmer. The former performer is a singer-songwriter from Los Angeles, Kate Markovitz – while another Kate, Kate Ryan from Belgium, has already taken her cover version of the latter song to number four in my chart. Meanwhile, the most well-known act with a new breaker this month are surely R.E.M., the American rock band with worldwide successes over several decades. They previously fell twenty-three places short of a top forty entry in my chart with “Everybody Hurts”, but could now be on the way to improving on that with “Losing My Religion”. In complete contrast, Captain Gumbo are not even famous enough to have a Wikipedia page that runs to more than four sentences in Dutch – although they are still touring almost three decades after their only marginally significant chart success in their homeland, “Allons A Laffayette”, and have released six albums. That’s two more than (Kate) Earl, whose title track from her latest has been one of the biggest successes in my chart in 2017. “All That Glitters” may be about to become her second top forty entry – and “Katchi” might prove to be an impressive follow-up to “Be Mine” for Ofenbach. Featuring Nick Waterhouse, it has already reached number one in France and Mexico. But it’s another single currently riding high in the charts of her homeland that, as this month’s Chartbuster, is guaranteed to become the first success for a 21-year-old singer from Hénin-Beaumont in France who took part in that country’s version of “The Voice” in 2013. Her number one hit there at the beginning of 2015, “Avenir”, didn’t make it through the breakers into my top forty, peaking only at number 85 – but she is already twenty-three places higher than that with her latest release. My Record of the Month for December 2017 is Louane, and “Si T’etais La”.

    Now, let's turn the clock back again - and to a time when, at least as far as my chart was concerned, I seemed to be looking forward to Christmas somewhat more than I do nowadays ! Twenty-eight years ago, I was frequently obtaining singles from continental Europe that I hadn't been able to find in the UK - so there were quite a few here that had originally been released rather earlier than . . . . . December 1989. Here's what I was enjoying at the age of twenty-five, while working hard towards the last promotion I would ever receive at work.

    Thanks again, Benny !

    Something that sticks in my mind about "Lambada" is that in the week when it was heading for the top forty in the UK there were technical problems, with the result that the chart was not finalised in time for the Sunday evening Radio One chart show. They only had data covering six days of the week, I think - so, announced with something along the lines of "as far as we can tell at the moment, it looks as if Kaoma have the first new entry at -" . . . . ."NUMBER FORTY" ! (Bruno Brookes used very loud jingles at this time).

    When the missing data was eventually added, it turned out that "Lambada" was at number forty - although some of the hits above it moved around, and there was a higher new entry that hadn't been known about on the Sunday. It was very unusual back then for hits in languages other than English to chart in the UK, so this one did well to go on to peak at number four. This was the same position as it reached in my own chart - where foreign language hits have always been much more common !








    . . . . . and this had already been the case six years earlier, in the second of this month's retro charts. There weren't as many Christmas singles charting when I was nineteen years old, and had just completed my fourth term (or I think they were called "semesters") at university - but the highest new entry was a comedy celebration of that special time which had previously charted in Ireland a Christmas earlier. And the same artist who was at number one in December 1989 was also there in December 1983 ! Here's the full list of what I was enjoying thirty-four years ago.

    Indeed - and it did well elsewhere too ! One of very few hits that went to number one in the Europarade without ever scoring in the UK.

    Just one hit remains in the same position in my first chart of 2018 that it occupied in the last chart of 2017 – and it’s the number one, as Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) stay at the top for a second month with “One More Time”. Although last month’s runner-up may no longer be a likely challenger – “Little Hollywood” is among twenty-five tracks moving down, sliding two places to number four for Alle Farben and Janieck - there are three other potential chart-toppers, all of them former Chartbusters, completing the top five. Nine climbers this time include Axwell ^ Ingrosso, advancing again from four to two with “More Than You Know”, and Portugal. The Man with “Feel It Still”, up two places to number three. Neither of these could reach the top end of the UK charts, despite hanging around for quite some time lower down – although their success elsewhere was considerable. And we surely won’t ever see Louane charting in the UK – but her latest single, “Si T’etais La”, has been seriously impressing music buyers in her French homeland recently. For the third month in succession, the Chartbuster has entered my top forty at number five. Four other new entries are evenly split between the new and the (very) old. “Katchi”, featuring Nick Waterhouse, means that Ofenbach replace one top ten hit with another – as “Be Mine” slides four places to number eleven, the follow-up crashes straight in at number nine – while Earl remains in the top ten with her former number one “Tongue Tied”, down two at eight, and adds a new hit at number sixteen with “All That Glitters”.

    Meanwhile, after being close to the top forty for a few months since I heard it a few times on Rex’s “VRD Archief Parade”, “Rock And Roll Star” sneaks in at number forty for Champagne, a Dutch pop and disco quartet consisting of Paulette Bronkhorst, Trudy Huysdens, Jan Vredenburg and the now deceased Bert Van Der Wiel. This was the first and biggest of eight hits for them in their homeland in the late seventies and early eighties, but attempts to spread this success into countries such as France and the UK – where they were rebranded as “Dutch Champagne” and “Bubbley” respectively, no doubt to avoid confusion with other similarly-named groups – unfortunately failed. Now in her seventies, but still very well known on Italian television – where she was a coach and judge on the most recent series of their version of “The Voice” – Raffaella Carra scores another hit in my top forty, her ninth, with “Fatalita”. Originally from 1984, that arrives at number thirty-seven. She also has the fastest faller this month, as “Ratatataplan” dives ten places to thirty-one – while the longest laster is Hooverphonic’s “You”, down two spots to twenty-seven and just above the Rapid Riser. Nothing is ascending faster this time than “Everything Now” by Arcade Fire, up six places to number twenty-eight.

    Most unexpectedly, Sara Cox’s Friday night show on Radio 2, “Sounds Of The 80s” provides two new back-catalogue breakers. The only section of this that I listen to is the one in which she revisits the UK top five from a week of that decade, playing the number one in full followed by the number one of another country – and normally the latter is something that would be very familiar to UK listeners anyway. However – in hopefully a good omen for future shows – this month she included a Swedish number one from 1986 that I don’t believe I had ever been previously aware of at all, and a Spanish number one from 1987 that I only vaguely remembered. “The Way You Are” by Agnetha Fältskog and Ola Håkansson, and “Soul Survivor” from C.C. Catch could now be on their way into my top forty for the first time. Alongside them are two other chart-toppers from the late 1980s – “Especially For You” by Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan, which was a number one in the UK and elsewhere, and “St Elmo’s Fire (Man In Motion)” which was a Billboard number one in the USA for John Parr.

    Dance music used to make much more of an impact on my top 40 – although nowadays it doesn’t tend to be as successful in the national charts that I follow regularly, so I’m hearing less of it. In an attempt to rectify this – but also because it was presented by one of my new favourite DJs, Evelyn De Backer - I listened in full this week to the top 100 Ultratop dance hits of 2017. However, just one previously unknown track to me stood out above all the rest. Apparently released towards the beginning of 2017, “Araya” by Dutch producer Bas Bron, billed as “Fatima Yamaha”, arrives at number 100 in my extended chart this month – nine places higher than a recent Belgian chart-topper by Regi (Penxten). That’s “Where Did You Go (Summer Love)"; – featuring (but not necessarily crediting) Alexander. However, as it makes its debut a little higher – number 94 – the new Chartbuster is a guaranteed third top forty success for a 38-year-old singer, songwriter, dancer and actress from Pennsylvania. Both of her previous hits were from 2012 – but she has been impressing music buyers all around the world much more throughout this century, having apparently sold over 47 million albums and over 70 million singles. My Record of the Month for January 2018 is the title track and latest single from her seventh studio LP, which has quickly become a number one album in many countries – “Beautiful Trauma”, by P!nk.

    Well, my latest January chart created what Sir Humphrey might have described as "masterly inactivity" - but here now is the very first January chart, going all the way back to 1980 ! I had only discovered, and was very much enjoying, the chart shows of the UK (presented by Tony Blackburn) and Ireland (presented by Larry Gogan - although it was Ken Stewart sitting in on the first Sunday of this month, and Vincent Hanley on the second one). Little did I know that the latter programme was about to disappear from the airwaves for the next eight months! I was fifteen, in the fifth form at school, studying hard for eight O-levels to add to the one (Mathematics) that I already had - and this is the music I was enjoying thirty-eight years ago.

    Nice song by the Bellamy Brothers, one of only two songs by them I know (besides 'Let Your Love Flow').

    Thanks, Benny - both of those still get significant airplay these days, I think ("Let Your Love Flow" to a greater extent, perhaps). There's only one other song from them that I ever charted - "I Need More Of You", which I heard in the Austrian chart. I don't think it performed very well elsewhere, however.

    Now, I realised - with some surprise - while doing the UKmixParade year-end countdown recently that I hadn't posted any of my own year-end charts here since the one that covered 2011 ! I have always based the annual lists on tracks first released in that year - even if it was some time later that I discovered and charted them - with the result that they can't really be finalised until all the hits released in a particular year have dropped out of my monthly top forty. However, by now, that does seem to have happened for 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 - so at around the middle of each of the first four months of this year, I'll be posting an extra list looking back on those years. Even if 2016 and 2017 can't be finalised by May and June respectively, I think I'll then do as up-to-date as possible versions of the lists for those years too.

    [quote=";When I posted my 2011 chart, I";:3hfnyik4]So how was 2011 for music ? Well, we were definitely beginning to enter a ( sadly, possibly irreversible ) decline in the availablity of music in physical formats - and perhaps the general quality of releases was decreasing too. Just fifty-five from a total of eighty-one breakers from 2011 entered the chart, making this a rare year in which I would have to consider the other CD singles that I bought, but didn't regard as good enough to even list as breakers - for a full-length chart. [/quote:3hfnyik4]

    And things haven't really improved since then - indeed, they have become much worse. There were slightly more breakers from 2012 than from 2011 - eighty-eight. However, there were fewer hits, just fifty. But there were other 2012 singles that I did buy, which didn't seem to me to be quite good enough to even make the breakers. Looking back on these now, some of them might just possibly go on to appear in the breakers in the future, as I am continuing to bring in selections of less-than-current releases as well as brand new recordings in the hope of creating more chart entries and faster chart turnover. But others, five years on, are creating more of a feeling of ";why did I ever think that was worth buying?";

    So I have expanded the format of the annual chart very slightly - instead of just a single lengthy list, I have divided it into several parts - one of them completely new, but also disappointing and frustrating. Early in the present decade, we sadly reached the situation in which some tracks did not receive any physical release at all - even on a compilation album, which (whether on vinyl or CD) would enable them to be eligible for inclusion in any of the higher sections. Thankfully, this doesn't yet seem to be a major problem - with only two tracks from 2012 falling into this category. Including them brings the total number of hits, breakers and others here to 122. So - after what turned into a somewhat longer introduction than I had planned when I started ! - here is everything that I liked, even slightly, from 2012 . . . . .

    I was checking just now whether that had an official release as a single in many countries - it didn't in the UK. It seems not - it was only a rather minor chart success in France and Spain.

    31 23 13 ANOTHER LOVE Tom Odell

    This one is there pretty much entirely based on the "Zwette" version - which I think I remember you expressed a preference for too back at the time. It doesn't feel like five years ago - but time just seems to pass so quickly nowadays . . . . . .

    Incidentally, congratulations on your very high position in the "Favourite Members" poll. As I voted this time, you climbed twice as many places as you would otherwise have done !







    Now, time for the second of this month's revisits to a much more bygone age. I was twenty-two years old, in my second year as an audit assistant, and (by using timer-switches to record them while I was at work) enjoying the chart shows of several European countries. That's how I discovered most of my favourites of thirty-one years ago :

    I also prefer the 'Zwette' remix of 'Another Love' to the original version.
    Thanks for your vote and congratulations to your high position as well, you were also very high in my votes!
