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 29th March to Saturday 3rd April 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 eleven new entrys, seven climbers and eight non-movers! And it was announced like this…
40. Sonic Youth – “Sugar Kane” Sonic Youth made their second UK top 40 appearance last week with this track, but seven days later, it goes down fourteen places.
39. Whitney Houston – “I’m Every Woman” Eight weeks later and Whitney is still with us with her second single from ‘The Bodyguard’ soundtrack and it also goes down fourteen places.
38. Chris Isaak – “Can’t Do A Thing (To Stop Me)” Chris Isaak stayed at the “Blue Hotel” and played a “Wicked Game” in 1990. This year you could do more to get him a hit single as this one drops two places.
37. LL Cool J – “How I’m Comin'” It’s been two years, but LL Cool J returns to the UK top 40 this week with new material and this is our first new entry of this week.
36. Jesus Jones – “The Right Decision” Jesus Jones also made the right decision to release this single as it gives them a second chart entry of 1993, the follow up to “The Devil You Know”.
35. The Lemonheads – “It’s A Shame About Ray” The Lemonheads come back with a follow up to “Mrs. Robinson”. This is the title track of their most recent album, released last year.
34. PM Dawn – “Looking Through Patient Eyes” Five weeks of looking through patient eyes causes PM Dawn to fall fourteen places with their latest sampled release.
33. Jamiroquai – “Too Young To Die” British group Jamiroquai also notch up five weeks with their biggest hit so far, which goes down twelve places this week.
32. Cliff Richard – “Peace In Our Time” Cliff searches for peace in our time with his latest single, his 114th in fact, but it takes a big dive in week three of twenty places.
31. Michael Jackson – “Give In To Me” Michael Jackson’s latest offering from the “Dangerous” album registers a seventh week but falls fifteen places and out of the top twenty.
30. Shinehead – “Jamaican In New York” Shinehead’s take on Sting’s “An Englishman In New York” arrived on the chart last week and becomes less of an alien with a climb of five in its second.
29. World Party – “Is It Like Today?” World Party were last in the top 40 in 1990 with “Put The Message In The Box” and they have a new album coming out later this month, from which this is the lead single and a new entry.
28. East 17 – “Slow It Down” East 17 love to go ‘deep’ and slow things down and they do with the follow up to their very first top five hit, which is also a new entry today.
27. Lulu and Bobby Womack – “I’m Back For More” Lulu and Bobby Womack came back for more, together last week with this song, but a week later and they can do no more as the song is a non-mover.
26. Sunscreem – “Pressure Us” Sunscreem latest top twenty hit has been a non-mover for the past two weeks, but is so no longer as it goes down seven places.
25. Annie Lennox – “Little Bird”/”Love Song For A Vampire” Annie Lennox flies out of the top twenty this week with her little bird and her vampire as they all go down eight places.
24. Dr. Alban – “Sing Hallelujah” Hallelujah, Dr. Alban is back! The artist who made his debut late last Summer with “It’s My Life” returns with the follow up.
23. The Beloved – “You’ve Got Me Thinking” Coming back with a follow up more recent than that are The Beloved with the second single from their new album, “Conscience”.
22. Barry Manilow – “Copacabana ’93” Coming back to the UK top 40 for 1993 is Barry Manilow. Take That covered him last year with “Could It Be Magic?” and now he comes back with a remix of a 1978 song that was a top ten hit in America.
21. David Bowie – “Jump They Say” David Bowie’s new album is out tomorrow, it’s called “Black Tie, White Noise”, and this is the lead single from it, which falls twelve places.
20. Lenny Kravitz – “Are You Gonna Go My Way?” Eight weeks on and Lenny Kravitz is still top twenty with the title track of his latest album and it’s down just five this week.
19. Aerosmith – “Livin’ On The Edge” Aerosmith come back to the UK singles chart this week with a big new entry. This is their first to make it this far since “Love In An Elevator” back in 1989.
18. Arrested Development – “Tennessee” Arrested Development were new this time last week in the top twenty, but fail to make any advances on that entry as their latest sticks in the same spot for a second week.
17. Duran Duran – “Come Undone” Coming back for more are Duran Duran with this new entry and the second single from their latest album, which follows “Ordinary World” and debuts in the upper half of the chart.
16. Bill Tarmey – “One Voice” Coronation Street’s Jack Duckworth made his chart debut last week and the actor who plays him, Bill Tarmey, enjoys a good second week with a climb of eight places.

14. WWF Superstars – “Wrestlemania” The WWF Superstars have wrestle mania on their mind and took to the charts for a second time last week, but like so many others this week, it’s a draw and a non-mover.
13. Gloria Estefan – “Go Away” And here’s someone else that is a non-mover, Gloria Estefan, also another of last week’s newcomers and she pauses instead of going away.
12. Cappella – “U Got 2 Know” Cappella, on the other hand, do move and go up ten places, which is this week’s highest and also their best since 1989.
