12th November 2017

2 weeks on top for Tears For Fears holding off (Bucks) Fizz and a strong drive from the fab Sufjan Stevens gentle ballad. The theme is very much duos this week, multiple entries for Pet Shop Boys, Hurts, Tears For Fears, Sparks, Sofi Tukker, not to mention duets, and in with that (sort of) come OMD - a band in the early days, but largely a duo or solo for most of their career. Anyway I saw a fab gig at Southampton Guildhall, the first time Ive seen both Andy McLusky and Paul Humphries together. Highlight was the awesome Maid Of Orleans, and Messages, but they have had good runs. They played several tracks off the new album, and the first 2 tracks off it sounded just as good as the oldies - so they re-enter as they under-performed in my chart a couple of months ago. The highest re-entry the title track, The Punishment Of Luxury, while their first single and set closer, the terrific Electricity never made my chart in 1980 so here at long last it is in at 32, only 37 years late.

Highest actual new act is at 16 - Tungevaag & Rabaak, a name that trips off the tongue. Well twists it at any rate. Very Europop 2015. Rita Ora bounds up to 21 and into the 40, despite the electronic version of Little Jimmy Osmond's Tweedledee noises interrupting the song. I'm tempted to do a mix with Jim's oldie... if I actually knew how.

The FatRat have a second chart entry. From 1978, because it's in the itunes chart and no other reason, the fab Blue Oyster Cult classic is back for a second run almost 40 years on, PNAU grab a second entry of the year, Clean Bandit a 3rd, Dannii Minogue a second of the year, and Delta Goodrem returns to my chart after a gap of 14 years - and her previous entry peaked at 74, Born To Try. 2 places higher and it's her biggest hit. She currently holds the least-succesful-act in my chart record for any non-one-hit-wonder. Oops!

John, when you said two obvious Fizz's # 1s I thought about "Making Your Mind Up" and "The Land Of Make Believe".
I just finished my list with top 100 favourite UK # 1s. All their 3 # 1s are in top 40.

Great to see some OMD in your chart biggrin.gif OTOH, I'm sad to see that Maid Of Orleans didn't make it. That's one of my favourite songs of the eighties (possibly even number one). Does Andy still do his Dad dancing to it? I think it's fair to sat that Electricity would have been high in my chart if I'd compile one at the time.

What has prompted the return of the brilliant Don't Fear The Reaper? Oh, and it's good to see The Big O making some impact as well. The new album could have been just a gimmick but I've been impressed with what I've heard so far.
