So this was the chart that Radio 1 DJ Bruno Brookes broadcast from 4pm-7pm with data from the GALLUP computer based on record sales from Monday 8th to Saturday 13th June 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 thirteen new entrys, nine climbers and three non-movers! And it was announced like this…
40. Martyn Joseph – “Dolphins Make Me Cry” Welsh singer Martyn Joseph has been around since 1983, but after six studio albums, he makes his debut in the top 40 this week with our first new entry.
39. Shakespear’s Sister – “I Don’t Care” Still not caring about a thing with their latest chart hit are Shakespear’s Sister. Six weeks on and they drop eighteen places from the hottentot.
38. Crowded House – “Four Seasons In One Day” Crowded House delight us with more meteorologic forecasts with their new entry that follows their first top ten hit, “Weather With You”.
37. The B-52’s – “Good Stuff” Coming back to the chart after a two year absence are The B-52’s with this new entry that will feature on their upcoming greatest hits album, so expect a few rock lobsters and a few love shack’s on that!
36. Tori Amos – “Crucify” Also back but a little sooner is American singer Tori Amos who made her UK chart debut earlier this year with “Winter”. This is the follow up and it comes from her debut album, “Little Earthquakes”.
35. Naughty By Nature – “OPP” Naughty By Nature are an American hip hop group that formed in 1986. They released their debut album in 1989 and the follow up came out at the end of last year. This is the lead single and it puts them in the UK top 40 for the very first time.
34. Craig McLachlan – “One Reason Why” Henry from Neighbours aka Craig McLachlan achieved two top twenty hits in 1990 with his debut releases, but his comeback has fallen short as the song falls five places in its fourth week.
33. Faith No More – “Midlife Crisis” Meanwhile, Faith No More achieved their very first UK top ten hit with this song three weeks ago, but it takes a tumble of twenty places and right out of the upper half of the chart this week.
32. Loose Ends – “Hangin’ On A String” Loose Ends are lead by Carl McIntosh and have been beavering away with music since 1982 but without much commercial success. They came very close in 1984 with the single “Emergency (Dial 999)” but today they finally cross the line with this new entry.
31. Soul II Soul – “Move Me No Mountain” Jazzi B’s Soul II Soul are moving on up this week with their second new single of this year as it climbs five places in week two on the chart.
30. The Mission – “Like A Child Again” The Mission hit back with a second helping from their brand new album, “Masque”, which gives them an eleventh consecutive top 40 hit since “Stay With Me” back in 1986.
29. SL2 – “On A Ragga Tip” SL2 achieve ten weeks on the top 40 with their biggest hit yet but it leaves the upper half of the chart for the very first time, going down fourteen places.
28. Tia Carrere – “Ballroom Blitz” Actress Tia Carrere hit the ballroom last week with a big climb with her debut single, but seven days on the song fades in our memory as it drops back two places.
27. Annie Lennox – “Precious” That is also the case for Annie Lennox as the second single from “Diva” also falls back after a big push last week. The song is down four places.
26. Innocence – “I’ll Be There” UK group Innocence are back in the chart with new music after four top 40 hits in 1990. This is the first to come from their second album, which is out next month.
25. Inner City – “Pennies From Heaven” Inner City haven’t had a top twenty hit since late 1989, so they were hoping this one would do it this week. Sadly it doesn’t as the song slips back one place.
24. En Vogue – “My Lovin'” En Vogue come out of the top twenty this week with their highest charting hit here in the UK to date as it goes down ten places.
23. Prefab Sprout – “The Sound Of Crying” It’s been a great week for Prefab Sprout, who have only achieved one top ten hit to date with “The King Of Rock And Roll” back in 1988. They are the highest climbers with this new track going up fifteen places!
22. Incognito – “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing” Just one week, that’s all Incognito have been blessed with this time in the top twenty as their latest slips out and down three places.
21. Messiah – “Temple Of Dreams” Messiah are what’s known as a ‘death metal’ band and they come from Switzerland. The group formed in 1984 and are about to release their fourth studio album. This is the lead single and it brings them to the UK top 40 for the very first time.
20. Diana Ross – “One Shining Moment” Diana Ross gets a second big entry into the UK top twenty in six months with the third single to come from her latest album, “The Force Behind The Power”.
19. The Cure – “Friday I’m In Love” One above her are The Cure with their latest top ten hit, their second of this year, which is down seven places in seven days.
18. TLC – “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg” TLC are an American all girl group who formed two years ago. This is their debut single, which came out late last year and made No.6 in their home country. The song is now breaking charts internationally and that includes the UK here they get a big new entry this week.
17. Manic Street Preachers – “Motorcycle Emptiness” The Manic Street Preachers did that last week with this new entry, but seven days on they fail to progress, at least they don’t backwards as the song is a non-mover.
16. The Beautiful South – “Bell Bottomed Tear” There is some good news for The Beautiful South, who finally break out of the top thirty with this track and go up fourteen places, which is their first top twenty showing since “A Little Time” in the Autumn of 1990.
15. Cyndi Lauper – “The World Is Stone” From this week’s to last week’s as Cyndi Lauper continues to build on her best UK chart position for three years and goes up three places.
14. Oceanic – “Controlling Me” Oceanic returned to the top twenty last week with their third chart hit single and enjoy an even better week two as the song is up six places.
13. U2 – “Even Better Than The Real Thing” Also back in the upper half of the chart are U2 with the fourth single from the “Achtung Baby” album that follows “One”, “Mysterious Ways” and “The Fly”.
12. The Orb – “Blue Room” One place higher you will find this week’s highest new entry and it comes from The Orb, who follow up on last year’s chart debut with “Little Fluffy Clouds” and “Perpetual Dawn”.
11. Guns’N’Roses – “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” Guns’N’Roses have been knocking on heaven’s door in the top ten for a month now but by no one answering, they slip one place and drop out this week.
10. Elton John – “The One” Swapping places is Elton John, who moves up one more place and into the top ten with his brand nee track, which is his first as a solo artist since “Sacrifice” in the Summer of 1990.
9. Ugly Kid Joe – “Everything About You” One down, one up and another one comes down one place as Ugly Kid Joe are one place lower this week with their debut UK chart hit.
8. Take That – “It Only Takes A Minute” And one’s keep occurring as Take That go up one place this week with their very first top ten hit, a cover of a Tavares 1975 US top ten hit that never made the top 40 here.
7. Kris Kross – “Jump” The young duo of Kris Kross are only jumping in a downwardly direction and not rebounding as their debut single leaves the top five, down four places.
6. Utah Saints – “Something Good” The Utah Saints, from Harrogate in Yorkshire, are non-movers this week as their second single freezes outside the top five. That’s can’t be good.
5. George Michael – “Too Funky” And there’s no good news for George Michael as his brand new single, which debuted last week, actually drops down one place, with all the anticipation of a number one this week.
4. Richard Marx – “Hazard” Richard Marx has been on the chart for seven weeks now and he was a non-mover last week but continues his journey to Hazard and goes up one.
3. KWS – “Please Don’t Go” There’s no sharp exit for the former number one from KWS as their cover of KC and The Sunshine Band‘s 1979 hit is down one more spot this week.
2. Nick Berry – “Heartbeat” Moving up five is form Eastender Nick Berry, who is now located in the North York Moors with his latest series. This is the title track and it could take Nick back to the top of the chart where he was six years ago…
1. Erasure – “ABBA-esque” (EP) Erasure, who were last week’s highest new entry straight into the top, maintain their stance and bag a second with their collection of four ABBA songs in the Erasure style. But can they make it three in a row, or will Nick Berry or Richard Marx take over? There’s only one way to find out…
