CHARTS: UK Top 40 Singles Chart 14th February 1993

UK Top 40 Singles Chart for Sunday 14th February 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 8th to Saturday 13th February 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 fifteen new entrys, four climbers and four non-movers! And it was announced like this…

40. Genesis – “Tell Me Why”
We kick off this week’s top 40 with a new entry and it comes from Genesis with yet another track from their 1991 album “We Can’t Dance”!

Having been loved the right way, Rapination and Kym Mazelle go the wrong way down the chart this week with a drop of fifteen places.

38. The Hothouse Flowers – “An Emotional Time”
