15th January 2017

3 weeks on top (7 in total) for A Different Corner, as the late much-missed George Michael also has many other tracks shooting up my charts, notably the sombre and powerful Praying For Time, up to 3 after topping my chart in 1990. George was very much a man with a social conscience, and a way with words and melody, on top of his flawless vocals. That would also apply to Hand To Mouth, a 1987 album track easily good enough to be a single, and up to 28 at long last becoming the top 40 "hit" it always should have been (I disallowed album tracks from 1976 onwards until the 21st century - a foolish decision! - so I have spent opportunities since giving lost great album tracks a second chance, and sadly George's death at least allows great tracks like the groovy Soul Free and the very minor hit Cowboys And Angels (gorgeous for every laid-back and moody 9 minutes or so) to get proper chart positions.

It's a new peak for Noah Cyrus and Labrinth at 4, a big climb for Lukas Graham, and an instant top 40 new entry shock comeback from Right Said Fred - in the list of most-unlikely returns to impress me, the lads would have figured quite highly on my list! Putting aside the awful novelty big hits they had (bar I'm Too Sexy which was quite clever), they had some very decent pop dance tracks, a couple of them making my top 10. Happily Sweet Treats is in that vein, and gives them a run of new hits over 25 years. As does Testify at 47 for guest vocalist Crystal Waters, Hifi Sean doing the twiddly bits. At 58, another of those multi-artist tracks featuring X Ambassadors, and Elle King, and Wiz Khalifa, all having made my top 10 previously, but not the lead act - hello to Alex Da Kid. The video is excellent.

That leaves 2 re-entries for the sadly late Peter Sarstedt, both from 1969, both I loved as an 11-year-old and I learnt all the lyrics to Where Do You Go To - I used to cut them out of a magazine mum bought (I think it was called Weekend, and they published one pop song a week - the first one I discovered was Autumn Almanac by The Kinks in 1967!). I saw Peter and his two solo hit-making brothers in concert together (Eden Kane and Robin Sarstedt) back in the 90's and good they were too.

Hi Jason, thanks fr the long list! Noah Cyrus is a great song, shame it's not a hit in the UK sad.gif

I'd also love to hear Shed A Tear in a club, bet it sounds great - dont get the chance these days sad.gif

Right Said Fred is a barnd new song from a new album, and it's pretty good, surprsingly! yahoo.gif

Starley is good, the intro reminds me of that fab Eurovision track from the gal with the blue hair, Poli Genova cool.gif

Cheers!
