So this was the chart that Radio 1 DJ Mark Goodier broadcast from 4:30-7pm with data from the GALLUP computer based on record sales from Monday 24th to Saturday 29th February 1992.
This is how the charts USED to look with new entries, climbers and non-movers, all based solely on record purchases. This week, thirty years ago, there were ten new entrys, seven climbers and seven non-movers! And it was announced like this…
40. Massive Attack – “Massive Attack” EP Massive Attack’s self-titled EP slides down thirteen places this week, three weeks after its arrival on the chart.
39. Julia Fordham – “Love Moves (In Mysterious Ways)” Julia Fordham ‘moves’ down eleven places with her biggest chart hit so far and the first to come from her current album, “Swept”.
38. Army Of Lovers – “Crucified” Swedish pop act, Army Of Lovers, were hoping to at least emulate the top ten success of this track here, their first UK chart hit. But sadly the song slips seven places this week.
37. M People – “Colour My Life” M People are back and they claim this week’s first new entry with the follow up to “How Can I Love You More?”, the second from the trio’s debut album, “Northern Soul”.
36. Queen – “Bohemian Rhapsody” The former number one from Queen is down fifteen places this week, now with three months in the top 40, but could this be their last…?
35. PM Dawn – “Reality Used To be A Friend Of Mine” PM Dawn scored their first chart entry of 1992 last week with this song, but seven days later, reality sees them drop six places.
34. Adeva – “Don’t Let It Show On Your Face” What expressions will Adeva show on her face this week as her chart entry from seven days ago does absolutely nothing and stays just where it came in?
33. Billy Bragg – “Accident Waiting To Happen” EP One person who is on the move in week two and in the right direction is Billy Bragg with his latest, which moves up seven places.
32. Eric Clapton – “Tears In Heaven” Eric Clapton is back with new music this week, which also features on the soundtrack of a new movie called ‘Rush’, while Eric himself has recently recorded a live session with MTV.
31. Joe Cocker – “(All I Know) Feels Like Forever” Also back with new music is Joe Cocker and we haven’t seen him since his Oscar winning duet, “Up Where We Belong”, back in 1982. This song is also from a new film due out soon called ‘The Cutting Edge’.
30. Toxic Two – “Rave Generator” Damon Wild and Ray Love go by the name of Toxic Two and this is their debut single, which has been released through Pete Waterman’s PWL Internation label. It’s also a new entry this week!
29. Gary Moore – “Cold Day In Hell” Gary Moore brought new music to the chart last week, but seven days on, the lead single from his upcoming new album is down five places.
28. Barbra Streisand – “Places That Belong To You” Barbra Streisand is back in the UK singles chart for the first time in four years this week and in keeping with the many film songs, hers come from a new movie called ‘The Prince Of Tides’.
27. N-Joi – “Live From Manchester” N-Joi’s live tracks from Manchester have seen their time as the group’s latest offering falls fifteen places and out of the top twenty.
26. DJ Seduction – “Hardcore Heaven” DJ Seduction’s first chart hit moved closer to heaven last week with aa climb, but settles just below with a non-mover in week three.
25. Tears For Fears – “Laid So Low (Tears Roll Down)” Coming out of the top twenty after one week there are Tears For Fears with their brand new track, which is down eight places.
24. Peal Jam – “Alive” And having yoyo’d back up the chart last week, Pearl Jam’s first UK top 40 hit is also down as it also drops eight places and out.
23. U2 – “One” U2 are back with a new entry and the third single to come from their number one album last year, “Achtung Baby”, but the first not to enter in the top twenty.
22. Curve – “Fait Accompli” British band Curve are back for 1992 with this new entry this week. The band are putting together their first album and this is the lead single, having charted twice last year but not making it this far.
21. Wet Wet Wet – “Goodnight Girl” Wet Wet Wet are not only out of the top ten this week but also the upper half of the chart with their most recent number one, which slides fourteen places!
20. Curtis Stigers – “I Wonder Why” Continuing the downward theme, Curtis Stigers is down seven places this week, but stays top twenty for a sixth week with his first chart hit here.
19. The Charlatans – “Weirdo” The Charlatans have been working on the follow up to their debut album for the past twelve months and are about to unleash it upon us all. This is the lead single and it puts the band back in the top twenty for the first time since “Over Rising” last year.
18. Rozalla – “Are You Ready To Fly?” Rozalla was flying last week with her latest single, which followed the previous two into the upper half of the UK top 40. But this week, she finds herself falling, down four places.
17. 2 Unlimited – “Twilight Zone” Following her are 2 Unlimited, who go down six places and the second single on the chart to be released on Pete Waterman’s PWL International label, with another one yet to come…
16. Alison Limerick – “Make It On My Own” Alison Limerick‘s second top 40 single became her best yet when it joined us last week. And she betters that still with a climb of three places this week.
15. New Atlantic – “I Know” Also fresh on the chart last week were New Atlantic with a bold arrival in the top twenty. They too go up in week two, three places also.
14. Simply Red – “For Your Babies” Simply Red have brought up their babies now so they can leave the top ten this week, down five places, with the latest track from the album, “Stars”.
13. Everything But The Girl – “Covers” EP Hull’s favourite duo, Everything But The Girl, were last week’s highest climbers with this collection of new recordings of old songs. Ben and Tracey are climbing further up, seven places in fact this week.
12. Inspiral Carpets – “Dragging Me Down” Meanwhile, last week’s highest new entry came from the Inspiral Carpets with this new track, which is also on the up, three places higher than where it came in.
11. Crowded House – “Weather With You” With Kylie gone this week, Crowded House have to fly the flag for Australia on the UK chart and they do so admirably as a climb of twelve places makes them this week’s highest and also nets them their highest charter to date!
10. Michael Jackson – “Remember The Time” Michael Jackson’s latest gets to make it a full month in the UK top ten, but four places lower than last week.
9. The KLF – “America: What Time Is Love?” The KLF are back with yet another top ten hit and this time it’s a different twist on their top five hit from late 1990 which reached No.5 back then. Can this version make it any higher?
8. Bryan Adams – “Thought I’d Died And Gone To Heaven” Bryan Adams came back to the UK top ten last week for the second time ever but he’s not looking like getting a second number one as the song stops and stays in the same place for a second week.
7. The Pasadenas – “I’m Doing Fine Now” The Pasadenas know all about that. They’ve been non-movers for the last four weeks! They are no more, as their biggest hit so far drops back three places.
6. Madness – “It Must Be Love” Madness reached No.4 back in 1981 with their version of this song, A climb of four places this week, but them two short of that target to equalize at the very least.
5. Opus III – “It’s A Fine Day” Opus III are the third song to be released by Pete Waterman’s PWL International and also the highest. But their very first chart hit remains in the same position they ascended to last week.
4. Guns’N’Roses – “November Rain” Guns’N’Roses have made a habit of entering the UK top ten in the past six months. Their two previous songs did and now this one does and it’s also the highest for this week!
3. Shanice – “I Love Your Smile” Shanice loves you smile and she sings it so beautifully and with an infectious tune. That doesn’t help her this week as she is a non-mover, refusing to go any higher.
2. The Temptations – “My Girl” That also goes for The Temptations, who positioned themselves to challenge for the top spot this week only to find their have to make do with a second week in second place.
1. Shakespear’s Sister – “Stay” Which means for a third week running, Shakespear’s Sister ‘stay’ on top of the lot with their very first number one. But can Siobhan and Marcella make it a whole month, or will Guns’N’Roses, Madness or someone else knock them off? There’s only one way to find out…
Make sure you come back in seven days time for next weeks chart!
