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 13th to Saturday 18th 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 eleven new entrys, ten climbers and two non-movers! And it was announced like this…
40. Electronic – “Disappointed” Electronic‘s disappointment has lasted just four weeks on the chart and three of those have been going down. This week it’s by seventeen places.
39. Nick Berry – “Heartbeat” Nick Berry has lasted seven weeks with his cover of Buddy Holly’s “Heartbeat” from the TV series as he drops fifteen places.
38. George Michael – “Too Funky” And down eleven places also with seven weeks on the chart is George Michael with his first new song since the “Listen Without Prejudice” album two years ago.
37. Thomas Dolby – “I Love You Goodbye” Thomas Dolby is not faring as well as he had with his last single here in the UK. This one slips a single place in just seven days.
36. Billy Ray Cyrus – “Achy Breaky Heart” Time for something new and our first new entry is also a UK chart newcomer. Country singer Billy Ray Cyrus is causing a sensation with this song back home in The States and he’s hoping to do the same here. Yeehaw!
35. Monie Love – “Full Term Love” It was back in 1989 that we first said hello to Monie Love and she’s been popping up ever since pretty regular. This is her latest and it gives her a new entry also this week.
34. Bruce Springsteen – “57 Channels (Ain’t Nothing On)” Someone who certainly needs no introduction is Bruce Springsteen. He’s been kicking about for twenty years now and this is his latest offering, which scores him another UK top 40 entry.
33. Genesis – “Jesus He Knows Me” And they keep coming with Genesis up next with a new entry and another track from their album “We Can’t Dance” from last year.
32. Shakespear’s Sister – “Goodbye Cruel World” From this week to one of last week’s new intake and the first of them all was from Shakespear’s Sister, who go up eight places in their second week with us.
31. INXS – “Heaven Sent” Also new on last week and a brand new recording came from INXS with the first sign of their upcoming new studio album, although the lead single moves up just two places in week two.
30. KWS – “Please Don’t Go” The song says “Please Don’t Go“, but with a fall of ten places, KWS are going…going…nearly gone with their former number one.
29. Utah Saints – “Something Good” Also out of the upper half of the chart are the Utah Saints, down fifteen places with their biggest hit so far, which has now been with us for two whole months.
28. Kris Kross – “Warm It Up” The young Kris Kross-ers have left us this week with their debut single “Jump”, but make a quick comeback with the follow up. Will it ‘jump’ as high as the first one did…?
27. Jason Donovan – “Mission Of Love” It’s not a good week for Jason Donovan, who came back with a brand new song seven days ago, his first away from PWL records, but seven days on it actually drops back one place!
26. Jose Carreras and Sarah Brightman – “Friends For Life” Also down one place are opera stars Jose Carreras and Sarah Brightman with the official song for this year’s Olympic Games being held in Barcelona.
25. Joe Cocker – “Unchain My Heart” Joe Cocker achieved his biggest UK hit since “Up Where We Belong” last week, but crashes straight out of the top twenty, going down eight places.
24. Morrissey – “You’re The One For Me, Fatty” Could be the title, who knows, the same goes for Morrissey, and he was a new entry last week with this new song, which falls five places.
23. Sunscreem – “Love U More” UK dance act Sunscreem formed in Essex last year and they’ve so far released two singles. This is number three and it’s third time lucky as this one lands inside the top 40!
22. Bryan Adams – “All I Want Is You” Twelve months ago Bryan Adams was at number one, but we had no idea for how long he would be there. This latest is powering its way there twelve months on, with a climb of twelve places, he is this week’s highest!
21. Siouxsie and The Banshees – “Face To Face” Peek A Boo – it’s Siouxsie and The Banshees! They are back in the top 40 with this new entry which comes from the soundtrack of the new Batman film, ‘Batman Returns’.
20. Diana Ross – “One Shining Moment” Diana Ross‘ one shining moment in the top ten was over last week and this week she falls eight places with the second biggest from her latest album.
19. Wet Wet Wet – “Lip Service” One of last week’s two joint highest climbers came from Wet Wet Wet with the fourth single from their most recent album. Seven days on, however, it drops four places.
18. Nirvana – “Lithium” There’s a new entry next from American grunge band Nirvana with another single from their hugely popular album, “Nevermind”.
17. Simply Red – “Your Mirror” And back with a FIFTH single from their album, “Stars”, are Simply Red. This is the fourth of the five to make the top twenty.
16. Dina Carroll – “Ain’t No Man” Continued good news for Dina Carroll‘s first solo top 40 hit, which goes up two places this week. She was last in the top twenty with “It’s Too Late” with producers Quartz in early 1991.
15. Sophie B. Hawkins – “Damn, Wish I Was Your Lover” Also on the up again is American singer Sophie B. Hawkins with her very first single release, which is one place higher than it was.
14. Richard Marx – “Hazard” Richard Marx has been a hazard in the top ten here for the past nine weeks, but all good things come to an end and he departs, down four places.
13. U2 – “Even Better Than The Real Thing” As are U2 with the remix version of this single, which peaked higher than the original did only three weeks earlier. They are down five places.
12. Michael Jackson – “Who Is It?” Back to the new entries now as Michael Jackson finds the fourth single from his album “Dangerous” debuts on the UK top 40 this week.
11. Mariah Carey – “I’ll Be There” One above him is Mariah Carey with her version of a song Michael and his brothers originally recorded in 1970. Mariah leaves the top ten, down six places this week.
10. Was Not Was – “Shake Your Head” It’s been nearly five years since Was Not Was were last in the UK top ten, walking their dinosaur but they are back with a climb of three places.
9. Erasure – “ABBA-esque” (EP) Meanwhile, falling five places are Erasure with their collection of ABBA songs that had been number one for five weeks only a fortnight ago.
8. Roy Orbison – “I Drove All Night” Roy Orbison is back in the UK top ten this week with the original recording of this Billy Steinberg/Tom Kelly song. It’s his first since “You Got It” at the beginning of 1989.
7. The Shamen – “LSI” Another good week for The Shamen as their brand new tune goes up two places in its second week on the chart. The group are putting the finishing touches to a brand new album.
6. Urban Hype – “A Trip To Trumpton” Urban Hype are taking a trip to Trumpton and for some of us, a trip back to Trumpton. But it halts this week as the song is a non-mover.
5. Madonna – “This Used To Be My Playground” Our highest new entry this week sees the return of Madonna with a brand new song and one that comes from a new film which she also features in called ‘A League Of Their Own’.
4. Prince – “Sexy MF” One above her is last week’s highest new entry which came from Prince and his New Power Generation, which climbs three places into the top five.
3. Smart E’s – “Sesame’s Treet” Going down one place are Smart E’s with their childrens TV theme from the long-running American series, which drops back to where it came in two weeks ago!
2. Snap – “Rhythm Is A Dancer” Swapping places with Smart E’s are Snap, who go up one place withe their new tune which is their highest here since “The Power” in April 1990. Can they go one more next week and claim a second number one though…?
1. Jimmy Nail – “Ain’t No Doubt” For this week, however, there ain’t no doubt who is at number one, it’s Jimmy Nail for a second week with his ‘comeback’ single. Can he hold it for a third, or will Snap, Prince or Madonna topple him? There’s only one way to find out…
Make sure you come back in seven days time for next weeks chart!
