UK Top 40 Singles Chart for Sunday 29th March 1992
So this was the chart that Radio 1 DJ Bruno Brookes broadcast from 4:30-7pm with data from the GALLUP computer based on record sales from Monday 23rd to Saturday 28th March 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, ten climbers and four non-movers! And it was announced like this…
40. Love/Hate – “Wasted In America” US rock band, Love/Hate, formed in 1985 and released their first album two years ago. After a number of singles and a follow up, the group finally break the UK top 40 this week with our first new entry.
39. Tori Amos – “Winter” Making her first appearance on the UK top 40 last week was singer Tori Amos. But seven days later, she fails to make good on her entry and takes a big fall of fourteen places.
38. Clivilles and Cole – “A Deeper Love” Going down seventeen places this week are producers Clivilles and Cole with their second release of this year, less their Music Factory.
37. James – “Ring The Bells” Ring the bells, James are back! The British band bag a second new entry this year with the third single from their current album, “Seven”.
36. The Lightning Seeds – “The Life Of Riley” Three years ago, The Lightning Seeds reached the top twenty with their debut single, but their second top 40 appearance falls short of that as it goes down eight places.
35. Toxic Two – “Rave Generator” The Toxic Two take their rave generator down seventeen places this week and out of the upper half of the chart, where they’ve been for the past three weeks.
34. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers – “Too Good To Be True” We welcome back to the UK top 40 Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers this week with their first new entry of the 1990’s here and their first to get this far since “I Won’t Back Down” in June 1989.
33. Shawn Christopher – “Don’t Lose The Magic” US singer Shawn Christopher was making magic on her own for the first time with this release, but three weeks in, it drops back three places.
32. Ten Sharp – “You” Dutch band Ten Sharpe arrived this time last week with their latest offering, which has already been a hit across mainland Europe. Week two sees the song climb eight places.
31. Wet Wet Wet – “More Than Love” There will be no number on this time for Wet Wet Wet as the follow up to “Goodnight Girl” leaves the top twenty and slides twelve places!
30. The KLF – “America: What Time Is Love?” Following them, but with a few more weeks there are The KLF with the new version of “What Time Is Love?”, which is down sixteen places.
29. Inner City – “Hallelujah” Hallelujah indeed! Inner City are back this week for 1992 with a new entry. The Duo of Kevin Saunderson and Paris Grey achieved five consecutive top 40 hits between September 1988 and December 1989.
28. Curtis Stigers – “You’re All That Matters To Me” Curtis Stigers hasn’t left it that long, only a few weeks since his first, “I Wonder Why”, left us. Now he’s back with the follow up and hoping for a second top ten hit at the very least.
27. Bruce Springsteen – “Human Touch” Bruce Springsteen’s brand new song arrived three weeks ago but has struggled to move a muscle ever since. This week he does, but it’s down sixteen places.
26. The Pasadenas – “Make It With You” The Pasadenas have one of the biggest hits of this year so far with their comeback and after a week’s gap, they are back with another cover, this time of a David Gates 1970 hit, which made No.5 here. So can The Pasadenas take it any higher…?
25. Praga Khan – “Injected With A Poison” Dance act Praga Khan along with singer Jade 4 U make their UK chart debut this week with this rave/dance number, which is already top five on the dance chart.
24. Manic Street Preachers – “Slash’N’Burn” You may have loved their last single more, but clearly not the Manic Street Preachers follow up to “You Love Us”, which falls four places in its second week.
23. Salt’N’Pepa – “Expression” Meanwhile, Salt’N’Pepa arrived with their latest number last week as well, but seven days on, it fails to go anywhere at all, preferring to be a non-mover.
22. Kym Sims – “Take My Advice” On the up is Kym Sims with her new entry from last week, which is seven places higher as she looks for a second top twenty hit next week.
21. Roxette – “Church Of Your Heart” Also on the up with one of last week’s new entries are Roxette with the fifth single from their “Joyride” album, which is up five places.
20. Liquid – “Sweet Harmony” EP Liquid remain top twenty for a third week since their arrival with their latest EP of songs, but this chart collection falls five places.
19. Prince – “Money Don’t Matter 2 Night” Prince enjoys a very good second week on the chart with the latest single to come from his “Diamonds And Pearls” album, as the fourth cut goes up twelve places.
18. The Cure – “High” The cure, however, will not be feeling so ‘high’ as their new entry from last week actually goes down, ten places, and out of the top ten!
17. WASP – “Chainsaw Charlie” American rock band WASP have been accumulating UK hit singles since 1987, but so far none of them have gone any further than the top twenty. This week, they break out and strike their highest chart position yet with this new entry.
16. Lisa Stansfield – “Time To Make You Mine” Lisa Stansfield continues to go up, even if it’s only one place higher than she was last week with the third single from her “Real Love” album.
15. The Temptations – “My Girl” The Temptations came crashing out of the top ten last week with their classic tune from the new film of the same name and put the brakes on a bit as this week the song falls just two places.
14. Hammer – “Do Not Pass Me By” The bare naked Hammer, as he is now, takes his latest single further up the UK chart with a climb of two this week.
13. Crowded House – “Weather With You” Australian band Crowded House also left the top ten last week with their biggest hit here to date and descend just three places this week.
12. Mr. Bean and The Smear Campaign – “(I Want To Be) Elected” In case you hadn’t noticed, there is a general election coming in a few weeks time and to win your vote, Mr. Bean is running for office and to make sure he wins the keys to No.10, he’s put it all to music with the help of Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson. Make sure to put an “X” next to his name! No, please do!!
11. Vanessa Williams – “Save The Best For Last” American actress and singer Vanessa Williams finally reached the UK top 40 last week with this former US number one and she’s heading that way here now with an almighty leap of twenty five places, she is this week’s highest climber!
10. Shanice – “I Love Your Smile” Shanice arrived in the UK top ten seven weeks ago and she’s still here. Just. Her very first UK chart hit is down three places this week.
9. Soul II Soul – “Joy” Coming back to the top ten for the first time since early 1990 are Soul II Soul with the lead single from their third studio album, which is coming out soon, and in doing so, claim this week’s highest new entry.
8. Erasure – “Breath Of Life” The fourth single from Erasure‘s latest album gave Vince and Andy a fourth top twenty hit last week upon arrival. A climb of four places give them a third top ten hit this week!
7. Eric Clapton – “Tears In Heaven” Eric Clapton has been ‘supporting’ the top five for the past two weeks with his biggest hit for many years, but the lead single from his MTV unplugged sessions moves back two places on this weeks chart.
6. Annie Lennox – “Why?” Former Eurythmic Annie Lennox made her debut last week with the first single to come from her upcoming debut album and enjoys a climb of three places in her second week.
5. Ce Ce Peniston – “Finally” The second coming of Ce Ce Peniston‘s “Finally” became the strongest challenger for the top spot this week, but drops back three places and rules itself out of the running.
4. Right Said Fred – “Deeply Dippy” The first two of Right Said Fred‘s singles both made the top three. Their third single stops short as it becomes a non-mover, nevertheless, giving the band three top five hits so far.
3. Mr. Big – “To Be With You” American band Mr. Big’s former American chart topper also go nowhere as their very first UK chart hit sticks for a second week in third place.
2. Def Leppard – “Let’s Get Rocked” Overtaking them all is last week’s highest new entry from Def Leppard, which climbs four places to become the band’s highest charting single yet. But can they go the extra mile…?
1. Shakespear’s Sister – “Stay” Watch out Bryan Adams, Shakespear’s Sister are after your record as their biggest hit so far ‘stays’ on top for a SEVENTH week running! Can they register an eighth, or will Def Leppard or someone else stop them? There’s only one way to find out…
