UK Top 40 Singles Chart for Sunday 10th January 1993
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 4th to Saturday 9th January 1993.
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, ten climbers and three non-movers! And it was announced like this…
40. Arrested Development – “People Everyday” After a chart rebound last week, the oldest of the two Arrested Development singles on the top 40 slides nineteen places.
39. The Time Frequency – “New Emotion” (EP) Our first new entry is a top 40 debut for Scottish group The Time Frequency. This is their third release and their second EP, but it is third time lucky for them in getting this far.
38. Simply Red – “The Montreux EP” Simply Red’s EP has been in the top 40 for nine weeks now, but this could be their last as their collection of new and old songs falls fourteen places.
37. Cher – “Many Rivers To Cross” Cher is back with another track from her number one “Greatest Hits” album from last year. This is the follow up to “Oh No Not My Baby”.
36. The Farm – “Love See No Colour” Last week’s highest climber from The Farm drops down one place on this week’s chart. This is the title track of the band’s latest and second album, released last year.
35. Heaven 17 – “Temptation ’92” We are making way for a few new entries this week and one of those leaving the top twenty are Heaven 17 with the remix of their 1983 hit, which goes down nineteen places.
34. Go West – “What You Won’t Do For Love” Another 80’s band coming back to the top 40 this week are Go West with this new entry which follows on from their top twenty hit “Faithful” last year.
33. The Lemonheads – “Mrs Robinson” The Lemonheads version of “Mrs Robinson” has ‘been around’ for seven weeks now but drops eleven places for the American band this week.
32. WWF Superstars – “Slam Jam” Ding ding, it’s the end of the round and the end of the contest for the WWF Superstars as they prepare to leave the ring and crash out of the top ten with a massive drop of twenty six places!
31. Boney M – “Boney M Megamix” Also taking a hefty tumble are Boney M with their hit megamix, which accumulates seven weeks on the top 40 and slides twenty places.
30. Madonna – “Deeper And Deeper” It’s six weeks for Madonna this time with the second single from her “Erotica” album, which gained a second wind last week but falls eighteen places, seven days later.
29. Diana Ross – “If We Hold On Together” Diana Ross achieves two months on the chart with her these from the film ‘The Land Before Time’, she too leaves the top twenty, down twelve places.
28. 808 State and UB40 – “One In Ten” It’s a game of numbers for 808 State and UB40 and with the title of their collaboration, which follows the crowd and drops nine this week.
27. Paul McCartney – “Hope Of Deliverance” Going this other way is the new song from Paul McCartney, which joined our first chart of 1993 last week and climbs three places in week two.
26. Sultans Of Ping FC – “You Talk Too Much” That also goes for the Sultans Of Ping FC, who bagged their first top 40 hit ever last week with this track and take it six places higher a week later.
25. The The – “Dogs Of Lust” We welcome The The back to the top 40 in 1993 with this new entry, their first new material for nearly three years and their first time in the top 40 since “The Beat(en) Generation” way back in 1989.
24. Prefab Sprout – “Life Of Surprises” It’s been a good week for Prefab Sprout with the title track of their greatest hits album of last year, which shoots up fourteen places this week.
23. Slipstreem – “We Are Raving” Slipstreem were raving last week as their debut single cracked the top twenty, but it has been short-lived as they leave seven days later with a drop of five places.
22. En Vogue – “Give It Up, Turn It Loose” The En Vogue girls are back with a new entry this week and another track from their “Funky Divas” album of last year, which has already produced two UK top twenty hits.

19. The Prodigy – “Out Of Space” We find ourselves in a similar situation as we did last week with two records selling exactly the same amount of copies and so there is no No.20, instead The Prodigy fall ten places for our first…
Lisa Stansfield – “Someday (I’m Coming Back)” …and Lisa Stansfield is the other one, who falls six places with her new offering from ‘The Bodyguard’ soundtrack and film.
18. Gloria Estefan – “The Miami Hit Mix” Getting a chart position all to herself is Gloria Estefan as her hitmix goes down eight places, just a sample from her chart topping “Greatest Hits” album.
