CHARTS: UK Top 40 Singles Chart 12th July 1992

UK Top 40 Singles Chart for Sunday 12th July 1992

So this was the chart that Radio 1 DJ Bruno Brookes broadcast from 4-7pm with data from the GALLUP computer based on record sales from Monday 6th to Saturday 11th July 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, sixteen climbers and NO non-movers! And it was announced like this…

40. Shakespear’s Sister – “Goodbye Cruel World”
