    There are fourteen climbers in this month’s chart – the greatest number for more than a year – and the Rapid Riser is the brand new, and 235th, number one. Although there is a different lead vocalist, with Luka Cruysberghs having replaced Noemie Wolfs, it’s the second chart-topper for Belgian group Hooverphonic, who were previously in pole position back in June 2011 with “Anger Never Dies”. “Romantic” races up nine places to the top – while three of the other upwardly mobile hits this time advance eight places each. Henry Mancini’s theme from the “Pink Panther” movies becomes the latest release from the 1960s to reach the top twenty, more than fifty years after it was recorded, as it moves from 23 to 15 – but the other two big movers are much more recent releases. Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa go from 20 to 12 with their worldwide smash “One Kiss” - and Purple Disco Machine’s remake of Man Two Man Meets Man Parrish’s “Male Stripper” zooms from 17 to number nine. “Dished” isn’t the only new arrival in the top ten, however - as the most impressive of this month’s three brand new entries makes its debut one place higher for Dynoro and Gigi D’Agostino. Also spending a fortnight so far at number eight in the UK, “in My Mind” is the first ever hit there for the young Lithuanian producer and much older Italian DJ, singer and remixer – although the latter has had six previous successes in my top forty, including number ones with “Silence” and “The Summer Of Energy”.

    The Russian/German DJ, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Anton Zaslavski has never reached number one in my chart – but has come pretty close with all four of his previous hits. For that is Zedd, who previously peaked at number two with “Clarity”, number three with “Stay The Night”, number four with “Break Free”, and most recently number four again with “I Want You To Know”. I’m not sure whether he operates a deliberate policy of only working once with any female vocalist, but all of these featured different singers – Jameela Jamil-lookalike Foxes, Paramore’s Hayley Williams, accolade-gathering Ariana Grande, and dance pop singer/actress Selena Gomez. His fifth hit, Happy Now”, is new at number 24, and features a much less well-known performer - singer/songwriter Elley Duhé, who was born in Alabama in 1992 but is now based in Los Angeles. That has already reached the top ten in the Netherlands, and is ascending the charts in other countries too – while an unusual release by Brazilian singer and producer MC Fioti, which has already had major success in France and Spain, sneaks in at 40. "Bum Bum Tam Tam" samples a Bach composition, “Partita In A Minor”, adding such truly inspring lyrics as:

    Vai com o bum bum tam tam, Vem com o bum bum tam tam
    Vai mexe o bum bum tam tam, Vem desce o bum bum tam tam
    Vai mexe o bum bum tam tam, Vem desce o bum bum, Vai com o bum bum
    Vem com o bum bum (com o bum bum, com o bum bum)

    Meanwhile, the Gilde Duo needed no lyrics at all to spend sixteen months in my top forty – they arrived in July 2017, then climbed in twelve consecutive months to an eventual peak of number six, But “Muhle Im Schwarzwald” is now making a much quicker descent - diving ten places to number 29, that’s the fastest faller as well as the longest laster, among twenty-three hits on the way down this time. And it’s a most disappointing month for new music – with absolutely no eligible potential hits arriving in the breakers. The only track appearing there for the first time is a previously overlooked release from 1982, “Margate”. This was only a minor hit in the UK for pop rock/folk duo Chas and Dave – and returning alongside it are their six former successes in my top forty. Any or all of “In Sickness And In Health”, “Rabbit”, “Snooker Loopy”, “Wish I Could Write A Love Song”, “When Two Worlds Collide” and their biggest seller “Ain’t No Pleasing You” could re-enter the chart in the months ahead, following the sad death in the last fortnight of Chas Hodges, at the age of 74. But guaranteed a place in the next top forty is the highest climber into the top 100 of the extended chart. Moving from 101 to 61 on its way to becoming his fourth consecutive hit, and indeed his fourth consecutive Chartbuster, my Record of the Month for October 2018 features AU/RA and Tomine Harket. It’s Alan Walker, with “Darkside”.

    I've completely lost interest in current music, that's why I only like the older songs

    Thanks again, Benny - yes, the state of current music just seems to be becoming more and more desperate. Nothing at all "new" impressed me last month, and there's nothing yet this month either. Such a decline since the retro years - of which this is the first for October. Twenty-eight years ago, I was entering the second half of a six-month secondment to London, and enjoying these hits from the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands and other parts of continental Europe :

    Now, halfway through another month, time for a trip to the (relatively) recent past as I update and expand a full annual chart. Continuing to move back one year every month, it's now 2008 - and I must admit that it doesn't feel like ten years since some of these were in my chart (plus, in most cases, sales and downloads charts around Europe). Of course, several stuck around until 2009 or even later, but still . . . . . Only one new hit and one new breaker from 2008 have arrived since I previously covered this year - but, as with other more recent years already featured, there were several other CD single purchases that I haven't mentioned before. And, as it becomes more and more difficult to find promising newer releases to include in the breakers nowadays, perhaps some of them will still get there in the months and years ahead !

    'Pjanoo' is the track, man, this is among the dance anthems of 2008. Wonderful entries are 'Listen To The Voice Inside', 'Skankin', 'Live Your Life', 'Feel the Rush', 'Unforgivable', 'Forgive Me'. I like most of Gaga's songs here, except 'Lovegame' (this hit is great the way it is sung), in their remix versions, the original ones are way too boring.

    Thanks for the comments !

    Several of the singles you picked out from October 1990 were, for me, by one-hit wonders - perhaps surprisingly, including this one ! Although New Kids On The Block had many other successes in the charts of the UK, Germany and elsewhere, "Tonight" was the only one that ever impressed me. It was on its way to a peak of number two, and a very good 160 in my all-time list.

    It's a real mystery to me how this flopped so badly in the UK - after over sixty hits, all of them reaching the top twenty, this could only get to number 39 even though it seemed to be well up to the standard of those that had made the top ten a few months or a couple of years earlier . . . . .

    I suspect that some of the later ones you mentioned are relatively less well known on UKMix - and indeed in the UK, where they weren't hits ! But "Pjanoo" certainly did deservedly well - number two in the UK, some good peaks elsewhere too.

    I discovered this one in the Belgian Ultratop 50, during its first year on MNM radio. I was a little surprised when it turned out to be the biggest selling hit of 2009 there that didn't reach number one - I thought that was more likely to be Paul and Fritz Kalkbrenner's "Sky And Sand". However, they were side by side at eight and nine in that country's chart of the year :

    Thanks again, Benny !

    Although this Stevie Wonder song was one of his greatest sales successes, a massive hit in the UK and the rest of Europe, it was one of the least successful Chartbusters for me - spending just three months in my chart, and peaking only at number 31.

    It's a good song but a bit overrated IMO. Regarding Stevie Wonder's 80s hits, I prefer 'Part Time Lover' by far.

    I still hear "Part Time Lover" on the radio sometimes, "I Just Called To Say I Love You" maybe not quite so much . . . . . although I wonder if very many of the biggest sales and streaming successes in the charts of 2018 will continue to be played thirty or forty years later ! Returning now to another pretty dreadful month of the current year :

    There are two non-movers in the penultimate chart of 2018 – and they’re right at the top, as Hooverphonic remain in pole position for a second month with “Romantic” and Angele’s former chart-topper “Je Veux Tes Yeux” stays in the runner-up spot. Completing a top three consisting entirely of former Chartbusters – for the third time this year, as it also happened in January and February – Dynoro and Gigi D’Agostino move up five places to number three with the Europe-wide smash “In My Mind”. The first success for the young Lithuanian and the eighth for the older Italian, it could give the latter his fourth number one – after “Silence”, “The Summer Of Energy” and “Soleado”. But there are two other strong contenders climbing into the top five – Purple Disco Machine with “Dished (Male Stripper)" advance five places to number four, while Zedd and Elley Duhe have this month’s Rapid Riser, racing up nineteen places to number five. “Happy Now” becomes the fifth consecutive top five hit for the Russian/German DJ, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter – each of them involving a different female singer! So far, however, the only one of the five who has reached my top forty without Zedd’s help is Hayley Williams – she peaked at number 22 with her group Paramore, and “Still Into You”. Seven other climbers this month include two battling to become the next single to reach my top ten more than forty years after their original release – Brotherhood Of Man are up from 20 to 14 with “Beautiful Lover”, and Henry Mancini goes from 15 to 11 with “The Pink Panther”. Nicole and Avicii featuring Sandro Cavazza continue to move closer to the top twenty with “Halt Dich Fest” and “Without You” respectively, and MC Fioti climbs five places to 35 - while Janieck and Sennek only manage one-place gains in their third appearances, with “Does It Matter” and “A Matter Of Time” landing at 30 and 32. Meanwhile, twenty-five hits are descending – including the longest laster from the Gilde Duo and the fastest faller by Axwell ^ Ingrosso. “Muhle Im Schwarzwald” slides from 29 to 33 in its seventeenth month in the top forty, while “More Than You Know” dives seven places to 39 in its fourteenth.

    Three songs move into the top forty from the breakers – and the highest is the fourth consecutive Chartbuster for the 21-year-old DJ and record producer Alan Walker. “Faded” reached number one, while “Sing Me To Sleep” and “Alone” both ground to a halt at number 11. Now “Darkside”, featuring AU/RA and Tomine Harket, arrives at number 15. New at 38 is the third hit for Belgian singer Dana Winner – almost twenty-five years after the first! “De Oude Man En De Zee” peaked at number four at the beginning of 1994, while “Het Dorp” reached number 14 at the beginning of 2007 – and is now finally followed up by “Als Je Zingt”, a cover version of Tanita Tikaram’s “Good Tradition”. And a song that originally failed to make it through the breakers, only going as high as number 96 in 1998, now enters my top forty at number 31. That’s “Flugzeuge Im Bauch” by Oliver Alexander Reinhard Petszokat – or, as he is mercifully abbreviated, Oli P. Meanwhile, my search for undiscovered potential hits from years gone by focuses this time on 2001 – with Creamy’s version of “Never Ending Story”, Reamonn featuring Xavier Naidoo’s take on “Jeanny” and Atomic Kitten’s recording of “Eternal Flame” possibly being about to bring back into my chart songs that originally did well for Limahl, Falco and the Bangles. There’s also an instrumental by Yiruma, “River Flows In You” that I only found much more recently . . . . . the ninth single by pop duo Alisha’s Attic, which surprisingly failed to match the success of any of the other eight, “Pretender Got My Heart” . . . . . and “Wonderful Dream (Holidays Are Coming)” by Melanie Thornton, which has re-entered the German charts every year since her death at the age of thirty-four, less than a month after its original release. Returning to the breakers following the death this month of Montserrat Cabelle at the age of 85 is her duet with Freddie Mercury, “Barcelona” – but, in yet another desperately poor month for new music, there are just two impressive recent songs. Angele has followed up “Je Veux Tes Yeux” with “La Thune” – but the Chartbuster, guaranteed to be a new entry in December’s top forty, comes from someone from the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, who was previously a professional surfer with a first name, Paul – but is now a DJ and producer known only by his surname. My Record of the Month for November 2018 is Fisher, and “Losing It”.

    The remake of Herbert Grönemeyer's 'Flugzeuge im Bauch' was one of the biggest selling singles of the 90s in Germany, how come that it appears now on your chart?

    Thanks again, Benny . . . . .

    . . . . . while I'm still searching through my record and CD collection for tracks that may not have reached their full potential at the time of original release, I have heard this particular one a few times on the radio this month. Both the Swiss and Austrian weekly chart shows now regularly feature tracks that were number one several years ago - the former four-hour programme on Sundays includes an old number one towards the beginning of almost every hour, since reducing the coverage of the current chart from a top forty to a top thirty - while the latter three-hour top forty show on Friday evenings is increasingly playing the occasional old number one instead of the German rap that dominates to a greater extent than ever before, and which I guess they don't want to inflict too much of on their listeners ! So Oli P's hit has been played because it's exactly twenty years ago that it was number one in those countries - as well as Germany, of course. I recall that I was able to see the German versions of "Top Of The Pops" - on which it would have appeared many times - back at that time on satellite television. I believe that was on RTL Television, and later on there were repeats on Super-RTL.

    I remember the German version of 'Top of the Pops' in the late 90s. RTL hoped that it would became as big as it's equivalent in the UK but that was not the case.

    Now, another retro monthly chart - and going back a long way, to when I was seventeen years old - as indeed was the German singer who was about to win the next Eurovision Song Contest, one of whose earlier singles I had recently heard on a German radio station ! It was among this month's new entries, the others being hits here in the UK. Two of the others were medleys - joining four others already in my top thirty. Yes, this was the year unlike any other in which the charts of the UK, Ireland - and to some extent other parts of Europe too - were over-run with medleys including a disco beat, as many other acts followed on from the success of Stars On 45 (billed as "Star Sound" in the UK). It could only be . . . . . 1981 !

    Regarding 'Stars on 45', I only know the first 2 medleys (Beatles and ABBA), and I like them both!

    Thanks again, Benny - "Stars On 45 Volume 3" was rather less successful than the first two both in my chart and in the sales charts of the UK and elsewhere. In contrast with the well known hits of the Beatles and Abba, that was just a collection of somewhat unconnected instrumental intro's. Later there was some sales success for a medley of Stevie Wonder songs - but it wasn't until 1983 that their medley of Andrews Sisters wartime songs became a massive hit in the Netherlands and Belgium. That did nothing at all in the UK, however - and not much in other countries either. In Germany, it peaked at number 35.

    Thanks again, Benny - I don't hear "Mr Rock And Roll" very much on the radio nowadays, and "Poison Prince" not at all ! But "This Is The Life" still seems to get plenty of airplay. Although not a big hit in her UK homeland, it went on to spend a vast number of weeks in the Europarade, as it made its way into the charts of continental Europe very slowly. I remember that it wasn't until several months after its original release that it got to number one in Austria, and it took something like a year before it went to the top three in Spain, having reached similar peaks almost everywhere else along the way . . . . .

    Yes, 'This is a Life' remained on the European charts for a very long time, climbing slowly but steadily. In Germany, it stayed in the charts for 56 weeks, peaking at number 2.

    Now, the second monthly retro chart for November covers my favourite hits from exactly thirty years ago - the more well-known of which can also be seen in my votes in the Retro forum ! While most of these were hits somewhere at the time, many of them weren't successful in the UK, America or the other major countries included there. And, curiously, the highest new entry, coming in at number one, wouldn't be a top three hit in the UK until the following year - in a longer single version that had originally been released in Australia ten years earlier. But I had recently obtained the original version, the theme from a television drama serial that had ended in 1986 after nearly seven hundred episodes, on an album containing several dozen original tv themes. Thirty years later, it's still the shortest song ever to top my chart ! .

    I like all these, especially Whitney's epic 'One Moment in Time', 'Ella elle l'a' from the late France Gall and Tanita Tikaram's twist in sobriety.

    Thanks again, Benny - "Twist In My Sobriety" was on its way to becoming the second of four number ones on my chart for Tanita Tikaram. It's the only one of the four I ever hear on the radio nowadays - probably because, although not a big success in the UK charts, it did much better in parts of continental Europe.
