UK Top 40 Singles Chart for Sunday 28th March 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 22nd to Saturday 27th March 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 thirteen new entrys, six climbers and two non-movers! And it was announced like this…
40. Van Halen – “Jump” (Live) Van Halen scored their first UK top 40 hit of the 90’s with the live version of their best known song here last week, but seven days on, it drops fourteen places.
39. Suede – “Animal Nitrate” Five weeks on and Suede are stepping perilously close to the edge as their biggest hit yet goes down sixteen places.
38. The Almighty – “Addiction” Scottish band The Almighty are back for 1993 with a brand new album coming. This is the lead single and our first new entry this week.
37. Right Said Fred – “Stick It Out” The relief for Right Said Fred is that their Comic Relief single for this year is heading on out with a drop of twenty two places.
36. Chris Isaak – “Can’t Do A Thing (To Stop Me)” We welcome Chris Isaak back to the UK top 40 this week with a new entry. He has a new album on the way and this is the lead single from it.
35. Shinehead – “Jamaican In New York” Edmund Aiken calls himself ‘Shinehead’ and although he is Jamaican, he hails from Kent and this is his take on Sting’s 1990 top 20 hit, “An Englishman In New York”!
34. JTQ with Noel McKoy – “Love The Life” The band JTQ score their first UK top 40 chart hit this week with a new entry and they rope in singer Noel McKoy for good measure for this debut for both parties.
33. Worlds Aparts – “Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel” Boy band Worlds Aparts made their top 40 debut last week with this cover of The Tavares hit, but seven days later finds them closer to earth and down four places.
32. Bananarama – “More More More” Keeping with the covers, Bananarama‘s version of this old Disco hit suffers less, less, less as they drop back eight places, three weeks in.
31. Therapy – “Shortsharpshock” EP The new EP from the band Therapy arrived in fine style three weeks ago as the highest new entry, but having left the top ten last week, they slump twenty places.
30. Apache Indian – “Chok There” Doing much better than them is Apache Indian with his latest chart hit, which moves up two places hi give him a third top thirty hit.
29. Monie Love – “Born To Breed” Monie Love has been on stop for the past two weeks with her comeback top twenty hit, but she is no more as the song goes down eleven places.
28. Ice Cube – “It Was A Good Day” Meanwhile, American rapper Ice Cube made his UK top 40 debut last week with this track that slips one place in its second week.
27. Lulu and Bobby Womack – “I’m Back For More” Lulu came back for more hits in January with “Independence” and she’s cementing her presence with this new entry in which she is joined by legendary R&B singer Bobby Womack, who gets his first top 40 hit here since 1987.
26. Sonic Youth – “Sugar Kane” Sonic Youth scored their first UK chart hit last year with “100%” and they want more and get more with this new entry, another song from their album, “Dirty”.
25. Whitney Houston – “I’m Every Woman” Whitney Houston is reduced to just one song from her film ‘The Bodyguard’ this week and it’s her version of Chaka Khan’s hit, which is down eight places.
24. Bill Tarmey – “One Voice” We’ve had Kylie, Jason and even Stefan Dennis from the soaps, now it’s Coronation Street star Bill Tarmey’s turn as Jack Duckworth gets his very first top 40 chart entry!
23. Mica Paris – “I Never Felt Like This Before” It’s been three years but it is great to see Mica Paris back in the top 40 with new music and a new album due very soon, from which, this is the lead single.
22. Cappella – “U Got 2 Know” Cappella also come back to the chart this week with a new entry. The Italian group first hit back in 1989 with “Helyom Halib” and were last seen in with Loleatta Holloway last year with their top thirty hit “Take Me Away”.
21. Jamiroquai – “Too Young To Die” Jamiroquai may be too young to die, but his first top ten hit is obviously too good for the chart as it falls eight places and out of the upper half of the top 40.
20. PM Dawn – “Looking Through Patient Eyes” PM Dawn survive a fourth week in the UK top twenty with their biggest in nearly two years, which is down six places.
19. Sunscreem – “Pressure Us” Sunscreem landed a third top twenty hit last week with this track, but a week later and they can do nothing with it and get a non-mover.
18. Arrested Development – “Tennessee” Arrested Development have already had two top twenty hits since November last year and here comes number three with this new entry.
17. Annie Lennox – “Little Bird”/”Love Song For A Vampire” Annie Lennox‘s smash double A sider still lingers on after two months on the chart and it falls just five places this week.
16. Michael Jackson – “Give In To Me” Time’s up for Jacko in the top ten with his latest single from the “Dangerous” album and it’s down seven places and out.
15. Lenny Kravitz – “Are You Gonna Go My Way?” Lenny Kravitz wanted some answers last week with this single paused on hold in the same place for a second week, but finds himself out of the top ten a week on and down nine places.
14. WWF Superstars – “Wrestlemania” The WWF Superstars are back for a second shot at chart success. The follow up to “Slam Jam” gets the tag team a big new entry here in the UK.
13. Gloria Estefan – “Go Away” Above them is Gloria Estefan also with a new entry and with one of the new tracks from last year’s “Greatest Hits” album.

7. Ugly Kid Joe – “Cats In The Cradle” Ugly Kid Joe returned to the UK top ten last week for the first time in twelve months, but their biggest hit since “Everything About You” stops going any higher and is a non-mover.
6. Madonna – “Fever” Madonna loses her “Bad Girl” image this week and replaces it with her cover of this Peggy Lee number that comes from her album “Erotica” and it’s also this week’s highest new entry!
5. 2 Unlimited – “No Limit” Ten weeks on and 2 Unlimited have yet to leave the top five with this chart topper, which drops just one place on where it was this time last week.
4. Shabba Ranks – “Mr. Loverman” Shabba Ranks has done much better this time with the re-issue of this song from late last year but he misses taking to number one and instead drops back one place/
3. Snow – “Informer” Snow also fails to achieve a number one with his debut single, which positioned itself well last week and slips back one place on this week’s chart.
2. Shaggy – “Oh Carolina” Keeping the theme of dropping one place going is last week’s number one from Shaggy, who leaves the top and drops one spot after two weeks there.
1. The Bluebells – “Young At Heart” It’s taken nine years and two releases, but The Bluebells finally take their best known track to the top spot. Last week’s highest new entry goes up four places to give the Scottish band their very first chart topper! But can they remain young at heart for a second, or will someone else put a stop to that right away? There’s only one way to find out…
