CHARTS: UK Top 40 Singles Chart 22nd November 1992
UK Top 40 Singles Chart for Sunday 22nd November 1992
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 16th to Saturday 21st November 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, nine climbers and five non-movers! And it was announced like this…
40. Enya – “The Celts” The title track of Enya‘s debut album reboot came onto the top 40 last week, but seven days later, she falls eleven places.
39. Michael Bolton – “To Love Somebody” After five weeks with us, Michael Bolton drops sixteen places with the first single from his covers album, “Timeless”.
38. Bassheads – “Who Can Make Me Feel Good?” The Bassheads come back for a third shot at a hit single with our first new entry. This is the follow up to “Back To The Old School” which made No.12.
37. INXS – “Taste It” INXS tasted so good last week as they were poised to go top twenty, but instead, they tumble sixteen places with the third single from their current album.
36. Electroset – “How Does It Feel?” How does it feel for producers Electroset this week as their debut single goes down nine places in its second week?
35. Cher – “Oh No Not My Baby” Cher went down last week with this song from her number one greatest hits album, but seven days later, she stays as a non-mover.
34. Shakespear’s Sister – “Hello (Turn Your Radio On)” Leaving the upper half of the chart this week are Shakespear’s Sister, four weeks after they said hello with the fourth single from “Hormonally Yours”, which is down sixteen.
33. Maxi Priest featuring Apache Indian – “Just Wanna Know” We’ve not seen much of Maxi Priest lately, but he’s back and he’s brought a new friend with him, Apache Indian, better known as Steven Kapur with his very first top 40 entry.
32. PM Dawn – “I’d Die Without You” The new single from PM Dawn drops back two places this week. The song comes from the soundtrack to the film ‘Boomerang’, which stars Eddie Murphy.
31. Chris Rea – “God’s Great Banana Skin” …is the title of Chris Rea’s new album and the title track lands a new entry this week, hot on the heels of “Nothing To Fear”.
30. Tasmin Archer – “Sleeping Satellite” The debut single and former number one from Tasmin Archer remains on the chart since she arrived back in August. This week she falls ten places with it.
29. Manic Street Preachers – “Little Baby Nothing” It’s been a great year for the Manic Street Preachers with three top twenty hits and could this be number four as the Welsh band score a new entry?
28. Faith No More – “Everything’s Ruined” Everything may be ruined but not for American group Faith No More who enjoy a ten spot climb this week to be the highest movers of all!
27. Diana Ross – “If We Hold On Together” It’s also been a great twelve months for Diana Ross with two top ten hits to her name and this new entry could be a third. The song comes from the soundtrack of the animated film ‘The Land Before Time’.
26. Jason Donovan – “As Time Goes By” Jason Donovan made his first steps away from PWL this Summer with “Mission Of Love”. For the follow up, he chooses something better known with this cover of a song that was written in 1931 by Herman Hupfeld (1894-1951).
25. Bizarre Inc. featuring Angie Brown – “I’m Gonna Get You” Bizarre Inc.’s most successful single yet departs the top twenty this week, down nine places for them and Angie Brown in their ninth week.
24. Cathy Dennis – “Irresistible” The irresistible Cathy Dennis continues to improve on her best chart poistion for twelve months as the second single from her second album goes up two places.
23. EMF – “It’s You” It’ you. It’ them! It’s EMF! The boys latest single climbs nine places having given them a chart entry this time last week.
22. The Pasadenas – “Let’s Stay Together” Also on the climb are The Pasadenas with their new entry from last week. They go up two places looking for a third top twenty hit next week…
21. Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine – “The Impossible Dream” Another band who have also enjoyed a great 1992 are Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine. Three top thirty hits to their name so far and this is number four and their version of a song that’s been recorded by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Shirley Bassey and Matt Monro to same but a few!
20. Kylie Minogue – “Celebration” Kylie is leaving PWL Records after five years and this could be her last single for them! She covers the Kool and The Gang hit from 1980 this time, which is taken from her “Greatest Hits” album that came out in the Summer.
19. Brian May – “Back To The Light” Kylie had a chart hit in August and so did Brian May and the both return at the same time. This is Brian’s third solo hit single and follow on from “Too Much Love Will Kill You”.
18. Ambassadors Of Funk – “Supermarioland” We still have one of the games console themed songs on the chart and it’s from the ‘Ambassadors Of Funk’. Five weeks on they go down five places.
17. Shabba Ranks featuring Johnny Gill – “Slow And Sexy” Mr. Loverman himself, Shabba Ranks, is back this week and he breaks into the UK top twenty with this new entry, which sees him join up with Johnny Gill, formerly with New Edition along with Bobby Brown.
16. En Vogue – “Free Your Mind” En Vogue free their minds just a little bit more this week with a climb of one place with the second single to chart here from the “Funky Divas” album.
15. Erma Franklin – “(Take A Little) Piece Of My Heart” Eight weeks on and the re-issue of this 60’s classic from Erma Franklin is holding its own, so much so the song is a non-mover this week.
14. Deacon Blue – “Your Town” We welcome Deacon Blue back this week with brand new material and a new album that’s due early next year. This is their first top twenty showing since “Twist And Shout” early in 1991 and it’s also this week’s highest new entry!
13. Rage – “Run To You” Rage may be going down with their rework of the old Bryan Adams hit, but its not running away that quickly. The song leaves the top ten, down three places this week.
12. Vanessa Paradis – “Be My Baby” Another artist leaving the top ten is Vanessa Paradis. She goes down four places with the lead single from her latest album, which is self-titled.
11. Simply Red – “The Montreux EP” Last week, Simply Red brought this collection of new and old recordings to the top 40, but seven days on they fail to do anything with it as they are non-movers.
10. Genesis – “Invisible Touch (Live)” Last week’s highest new entry came from Genesis with this live version of their 1986 single, but they probably wish they had been non-movers like Simply Red in week two instead of going down three places.
9. The Shamen – “Boss Drum” The Shamen fall three places this week with their third top ten hit of 1992, all from the same album of the same name as this single.
8. Guns’N’Roses – “Yesterdays” Good new for Guns’N’Roses, who were new last week with this track. They go up four places and return to the UK top ten.
7. Arrested Development – “People Everyday” Arrested Development have spent a month in the top three with their UK chart debut, but after two weeks at number three, they descend four places.
6. The Prodigy – “Out of Space” The last single from The Prodigy didn’t quite make the top ten but the follow up to “Fire” does as they go eight places higher than their entry position last week.
5. Undercover – “Never Let Her Slip Away” Undercover moved back into the top five last week with their second single, a cover of an Andrew Gold sing from 1978, but stay just there as non-movers.
4. Heaven 17 – “Temptation ’92” Jumping over them are Heaven 17 with the Brothers In Rhythm remix of their 1982 hit, going up five places and now two short of where the original peaked ten years ago.
3. Boyz II Men – “End Of The Road” Boyz II Men left the top spot last week with this song and fall just one more place again this week. The song has now been on our top 40 for three months.
2. Whitney Houston – “I Will Always Love You” Whitney’s cover of Dolly Parton‘s song from her new film ‘The Bodyguard’ goes up two places into the number two slot this week.
1. Charles and Eddie – “Would I Lie To You?” Still pleading the truth are Charles and Eddie, who stay top of the lot for a second week with their debut single. But can they make it three in a row, or will Whitney, Heaven 17 or someone else be more obvious? There’s only one way to find out…
