    'More Than Words' is beautiful, what a shame that the band became a one-hit wonder.

    Thanks, Benny - from the many you've quoted, I think "More Than Words" is the one I still hear the most on
    the radio nowadays (with "Gypsy Woman" and, to a lesser extent, "Sadeness" probably the next most often
    played).

    Extreme are certainly one-hit wonders as far as my chart is concerned - but (even though I've been listening to
    the weekly chart for over forty years), I'm amazed to find now that they actually had eight other hits in the UK,
    five of which made the top twenty!

    Apart from "More Than Words", I was expecting to find just one more - "Hole Hearted", as that was the only
    single from them that I even remembered the title of - but I doubt I would recognise that, nor any of the
    others, if I heard it now.

    There are some fantastic choices in your 1991 chart, especially "Luton Airport" (re-issue ???), "Winter Wonderland" and my favourite song of 1991"A Message To Your Heart".

    Add "Morgen Wordt Alles Anders" in my YouTube playlist.
    My celebrity crushes : Monika Sedziuviene, Kristina Ivanova (YVA).

    Dreamer, you must to visit Lithuania and see/listen a live concert of your YVA strawberries.

    Thanks, LastDreamer!

    "Luton Airport" wasn't re-issued - it reached my chart twelve years after release because I didn't manage to
    get a copy until then! Back in 1978/1979, when I was fourteen/fifteen years old, I tended to wait for singles
    to reach the bargain bins - and some never did.

    I don't know whether much of her television and film work would have reached your part of the world, but
    Samantha Janus (now Samantha Womack) is much more well known as an actress rather than a singer.

    "Morgen Wordt Alles Anders" was Bonnie St Claire's highest-peaking song in my chart, on its way to number
    four. But it only spent six months in the chart, while her duet with Jose "Zoals Vrienden Doen" (a cover
    version of Abba's "The Way Old Friends Do") had peaked at number 16, and spent eleven months there - so
    this is a few places higher in the overall ranking.

    .




    Now . . . . . the second retro chart for this month. Thirty-four years ago, at the age of twenty-one, I
    was just about to start work, and in a brief period in which, having recently completed my degree, I
    had no studying at all to do! Perhaps that's partly why there were so many new entries, and much
    more major movement, in my chart back then than there ever seems to be nowadays. A very strong
    top five, however, were completely unchanged.....in August 1985!

    Thanks again, Benny - although the front man of "Tarzan Boy", who died at a young age ten years after this
    success, was from Northern Ireland, the UK was among the last countries in which this song charted! But at
    least it did eventually do very well there (as elsewhere) - unlike the first German number one from Modern
    Talking, which was released twice but never went higher than number 56. And I thought the big Bad Boys Blue
    single also had a good chance of being a hit in the UK - but it did nothing at all.....

    Last month, “Blue Tango” by the recently-deceased Sid Ramin, returned to number one – but now it is among twenty-three tracks moving down, landing at number seven, and eleven climbers include my 241st chart-topper. That’s “You Say”, from the 27-year-old American contemporary Christian music singer/songwriter Lauren Daigle, who is still doing remarkably well in the official charts of Belgium and the Netherlands. Three singles that have had somewhat more widespread success in 2019 are the only ones remaining exactly where they were last time – “So Am I” stays at two for Ava Max, “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” from Mark Ronson featuring Miley Cyrus sticks at three, and “Speechless” by Robin Schulz featuring Erika Sirola holds steady at four. The follow-up to that last hit, and former number one, is one of three new entries this month – “All This Love”, with vocals by American R&B singer Harloe, sneaks in at number 40. The late Avicii continues to have two songs in the top forty – “Without You” drops out, while “Heaven”, sung by Coldplay’s Chris Martin, arrives at number sixteen and the first single from his posthumous album “Tim” is the Rapid Riser for a second month. “S.O.S” races up another twelve places to number eleven. Two of last month’s new entries nearly match that move – Elisabetta Viviani advances from 20 to nine with “La Bande Dei Cinque” and Alec Benjamin featuring Alessia Cara are going up quickly from 33 to 22 with “Let Me Down Slowly”. But there are more modest moves of six places each to 29 and 34 for the other August debuts, from Hooverphonic and Madonna – “Looking For Stars” and “Dark Ballet”. Meanwhile, last month’s Chartbuster is this month’s highest new entry, as Frank Mills arrives at number five with “Happy Song” – while other former Chartbusters are now the longest laster and fastest faller. “Zoutelande” hangs on in for a seventeenth month for Blof featuring Geike Arnaert, sliding from 38 to 39 - while the former number one from Fisher, “Losing It”, dives nine places to number 25.

    It’s another month in which a combination of declining availability of new releases in eligible physical formats and declining quality of the vast majority of current sales and streaming successes means that there are no impressive recent tracks arriving in the top forty breakers. However, I am at least somewhat cautiously optimistic that there may be some next month! My search through the archives for previously overlooked potential hits this month focuses on Dutch artists singing in their own language – and ten old hits from the 1980’s and early 1990’s now have very belated opportunites of reaching my top forty. Three of them are cover versions of songs that have already charted – “Effe Eentje Tussendoor” by Gerard Cox was previously “Turaluraluralu” from Trio, while two of Andre Van Duin’s many releases lose a little more in translation. “Voor De Kat’s Viool” and “Grote Voeten” (“For The Cat’s Violin” and “Big Feet”) had been “The Chicken Song” and “Love And Marriage”. The others, I think, are all originals – “E.T. en Elliott”. “Groetjes Uit Rio”, “Het Grote Meneer Kaktus Lied”, “Ik Hou Van Jou”, “Kiddy Kiddy Kiss Me”, “Kon Ik Maar Even Bij Je Zijn”, and “Vrienden Voor Het Leven”, from Melchior, Willeke Alberti, Meneer Kaktus, Maribelle, Highway, Gordon and Danny De Munk respectively. Meanwhile, as none of these arrive inside the top 100 of the extended chart, the new Chartbuster is the biggest climber there – and a move from 116 to 59 means a guaranteed top forty debut next month for an instrumental released in the year I was born. And, back then, it’s quite possible that it was most enjoyed by people of around the age I am now! It was only a minor hit in the UK, peaking at number 31 – although it was used as part of the “Let’s Party” medley which was the third UK number one for Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers. That reached number 30 in my chart – but perhaps the original version will now go higher. My Record of the Month for September 2019 is Joe Loss and his Orchestra, and “March Of The Mods”.

    That appears to be the first track from a new Nicole album due out in five or six weeks' time - so it wouldn't be
    eligible for my chart or breakers until there is a physical release. Hopefully it will reach the German albums chart,
    like all of her earlier albums this century and most of those of the previous one:

    https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicole/Diskografie

    Her newer material hasn't done so well in my chart, but she has had more breakers than almost any other act (39) and more top ten hits (22) than anyone else. On my points-based "Top recording acts" list, she is so far ahead of her closest challengers that I doubt she will ever be overtaken.

    Will Ava Max's new single 'Torn' enter your next chart? People say that it samples ABBA's Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (like 'Hung Up') though in this case I don't hear it.

    "Torn" will certainly appear in the breakers next time - I already think it has a reasonable chance of being the
    third consecutive Chartbuster for Ava Max - as it's one of three recent releases that I hoped would be
    available physically and therefore be eligible. I obtained all three today!

    I'm not sure whether the track includes an Abba sample or not, although I did hear a few radio presenters
    suggesting this when it was first premiered. I think I can just about see what they're getting at, although if
    they're right it only seems to be a very, very small element of the new song.

    Now, the first retro chart for this month. Thirty-seven years ago, I was just about to begin my degree at
    university, and was also just beginning to find the radio broadcasts of the charts of countries other than the
    UK and Ireland. And I had bought a few albums, including the first English-language one by Nicole! Here's the
    music I was enjoying back in 1982.....

    Now, half way through the month, it's time for a short celebration. My latest monthly chart was my 480th,
    so it's forty years since the first! Time constraints mean that any different or better ideas will have to wait
    until another suitable landmark - and this one will just be a quick summary listing, for each year, the most
    successful single originally released in that year. It may be in surprising in some ways, in that not all of these
    tracks reached number one in any month - some of them were even excluded from the monthly top ten
    because no vinyl release was available at the time - and a few of my favourite artists of all time don't appear
    here at all, despite having songs close to the number one in multiple years! Similarly bizarrely, one act has
    the top song in three different years - but those three are all actually among the lowest ranking in the all-
    time chart of all those appearing here. Anyway, here they all are!

    Thanks, trebor and Benny!

    "Lemon Tree" is a good example of my top hit of the year never actually reaching number one - it only peaked
    at number six, but spent much longer in the top twenty than any of the hits of 1995 that went higher. I
    remember knowing instantly that it would be my Chartbuster when I first heard it on the radio, back when
    there was a German chart broadcast there - I think it was on "Eins Live"? Bafflingly, the single missed the top
    twenty in the UK despite going to number one in Ireland - as well as all its massive success in other Western
    European countries.

    It was nice to listen Barbara Dex's song, which I didn't know before.

    My top 3 (from your # 1s) :
    1. Sue Wilkinson
    2. Barbara Dex
    3. Sophie Ellis-Bextor
    My celebrity crushes : Monika Sedziuviene, Kristina Ivanova (YVA).

    Dreamer, you must to visit Lithuania and see/listen a live concert of your YVA strawberries.

    Wow, CZB - congratulations on 40 years of personal charts - that is an incredible level of commitment. I'm just over halfway there myself. You should produce some all-time stats in honor of the chart

    I don't recognize most of your year end songs, but love love love Twist in My Sobriety - a real hidden gem of the 80s.

    That Warm This Winter in your current chart is near the top of my list for favorite Christmas songs. I didn't realize until a year or so ago it was a cover form the 1960s. Good on her for rediscovering such a fun seasonal song.

    Hoping we'll see either Ava or Avicii (since he's got some big moves below) at #1 in your next chart.,

    Thanks, Blondini, LastDreamer, cheapthrills and LOVE+FEAR for the further comments!

    That would depend on me living to at least 95 years old! Alizee had two number ones in my chart - the
    other, of course, being "Moi....Lolita", which was the fourth biggest hit of the year 2000. But her other three
    breakers all finished way, way short of a top forty placing - "L'Alize". "J'ai Pas Vingt Ans" and "Mademoiselle
    Juliette" peaked at 122, 124 and 125 respectively in the extended chart.

    2. Barbara Dex
    3. Sophie Ellis-Bextor
    "Before" was only a minor hit for Barbara Dex in her Belgium homeland, peaking at 37 in the chart there -
    she had previously had two much bigger sales successes, including the Eurovision Song Contest entry
    which I'm sure you'll know. But I wasn't impressed with that or any of her many other releases.

    Sophie Ellis-Bextor, in contrast, has had seven breakers over quite a few years, and all of them went on into
    the top forty. "Rock With You"/"F**k With You" peaked at number 14, but the rest reached the top five,
    including three number ones!

    I haven't yet begun to compile my next chart - although there are just seven days left in the month. But I
    think Avicii could well have two climbers into the top ten, one of them maybe a contender for a future
    number one. "Levels", peaking at number three, is marginally his most successful single in my chart to date,
    slightly higher than his only number one, "Collide/Fade into Darkness/Penguin". That was probably the only
    instance of the same instrumental being the backing track for two completely different songs!

    "Twist In My Sobriety" is surely Tanita Tikaram's most well-known song, and her biggest success in many
    countries - but not the UK! It was one of four number ones from her in my chart.

    I thought of adding a further line to the table of annual number ones for "2019 - so far" - although really it's
    far too early to say. But "So Am I" is already in the lead, and I think it's very likely to be my number one of
    this year. "Torn" will certainly arrive in the breakers next week, and looks virtually certain to be a chart entry
    the following month.

    Now, the second retro monthly chart for September - and it's back to thirty years ago, when I was
    twenty-five years old, beginning a very hard-working year as an audit assistant manager, and enjoying
    the hits in the charts all over Western Europe. Especially.....these!

    Thanks again, Benny - of those you've quoted, the Soulsister single is surely the least well-known in the UK. Yet
    another one that somehow missed out on major success here, it spent ten weeks in the top 100 without ever
    going higher than number 81 - while reaching number 16 in Ireland and the top ten in several other countries.

    There is just one non-mover in my top forty this month – and it’s right at the top, as 27-year-old American contemporary Christian music singer/songwriter Lauren Daigle spends a second month in pole position with “You Say”. This still continues to chart strongly in Belgium and the Netherlands, despite being quite unlike most other current successes in those countries. However, Avicii could potentially be the second deceased artist to top my chart in 2019 – the late Swede rises into the top five with his two very popular posthumous releases. “S.O.S”, featuring Aloe Blacc, advances from eleven to five – while “Heaven”, featuring Chris Martin from Coldplay, is the Rapid Riser, racing up fourteen places to number two. Seven other hits climb this time – “back catalogue” singles from Frank Mills, Elisabetta Viviani and Henry Mancini make modest moves inside the top ten, while there are more impressive gains for Alec Benjamin featuring Alessia Cara, Hooverphonic, Madonna and Robin Schulz featuring Harloe. “Let Me Down Slowly”, “Looking For Stars”, “Dark Ballet” and “All For Love” climb six to nine places each - landing at 15, 20, 28 and 33 respectively. Meanwhile, twenty-eight tracks are descending – the fastest faller is “Best Friend” by Sofi Tukker featuring Nervo, the Knocks and Ailsa Ueno, diving eight at 39, while the longest laster has proved even longer-lasting as one of the top Dutch-sung hits in Belgium, reaching 100 weeks in that chart. That’s “Zoutelande” by Blof featuring Geike Arnaert, possibly coming to the end of its time in my top forty as it falls one place to 40 in its seventeenth appearance. All of that leaves two new entries this time – nine years after his death at the age of sixty-four, Mick Lally enters at 25 with his Irish chart-topper from 1990, “The Byroad To Glenroe”, and almost thirty years after his passing at the age of eighty, Joe Loss comes in at number ten with last month’s Chartbuster “March Of The Mods”.

    My ongoing search for previously overlooked singles from years gone by deserving of a chance of belated success focuses this time on 1979 – my first full year of following the charts of the UK and Ireland, in which I originally heard “Do That To Me One More Time”, “Escape (Pina Colada Song)”, “Living By Numbers”, “Money”, “Morning Dance”, “Que Sera Mi Vida (If You Should Go)” and “Rock Around The Clock”, from Captain and Tennille, Rupert Holmes, New Musik, Flying Lizards, Spyro Gyra, Gibson Brothers and Telex respectively. Three continental successes from that year that I discovered more recently also arrive in the breakers for the first time – “Casanova” by Luv’, “Please Me, Please Do” from Babe and “Ich Bin Fur Dich Da” by Vicky Leandros. The last of those is a German version of a song that previously reached number four in my chart for Hot Chocolate – “I’ll Put You Together Again”. Meanwhile, there are five much more recent impressive releases, all of which make very strong debuts at the top end of the breakers and have excellent prospects of advancing into the top forty next time. Two of them are acts that have never appeared before – Gamper and Dadoni featuring Emily Roberts have had some success in Austria and Germany in the last few weeks with their version of “Bittersweet Symphony”, while Tones And I, Australian pop singer/songwriter Toni Watson, seems to be heading for massive worldwide chart domination with “Dance Monkey”. Returning to the breakers after being absent for more than five years – despite releasing plenty of other material during that period! – are Martin Garrix and Lana Del Rey. “Animals” was the only previous success in my chart for the 23-year-old Dutch DJ and producer, and “These Are The Times”, with vocals by Jamaican singer JRM, could become the second – while the multi-talented 34-year-old from New York City previously had seven top ten hits. The first and biggest was “Video Games”, the last was “Young And Beautiful” – but now, “Doin’ Time” could give her an eighth hit with her ninth breaker. However, guaranteed to become a new entry in next month’s top forty is the third consecutive Chartbuster for a 25-year-old singer/songwriter from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. “Sweet But Psycho” was my number one in April, then “So Am I” was there in May, June and July.....could she possibly have a third chart-topper before the year is out? My Record of the Month for October 2019 is Ava Max, and “Torn”.
