UK Top 40 Singles Chart for Sunday 29th 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 23rd to Saturday 28th 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 sixteen new entrys, three climbers and three non-movers! And it was announced like this…
40. Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine – “The Impossible Dream” “The Impossible Dream” is a classic song from many varied crooners but not it seems from Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine, who tumble nineteen places with their version in week two!
39. Cathy Dennis – “Irresistible” The latest song from Cathy Dennis was doing much better than her last, but week three finds the song dropping fifteen places.
38. Prince – “7” Short and sweet is the order of the day for Prince with the latest cut from his new album, “Love Symbol”, which is this week’s first new entry.
37. Maxi Priest featuring Apache Indian – “Just Wanna Know” Maxi Priest will just wanna know why his new song is going down four places after a new entry last week along with chart newcomer Apache Indian.
