2nd December 2017

It's a first week on top for the fab Amen, (Bucks) Fizz' best record since Heart Of Stone or New Beginnings, possibly since My Camera Never Lies! It's either their first number one (for the new bloke and the band under that name) or their 6th (for Cheryl and Mike) or a 5th (for Jay). Whatever, it's been a gap of 31 years between chart-toppers with new material, so that's pretty much up there with the longest gaps.

David Cassidy drops to 2 with his classic 1972 UK chart-topper, but climbs to 5 with his 1973 gorgeous I'm A Clown, which peaked at 3 originally for me. Another late fave, Glen Campbell hits 4 with his version of Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now. Glen's version is my fave version, though I love others too. I was 13 when I first loved it. I was 14 when I first loved Steely Dan's Do It Again, and 13 when I loved The Partridge Family's I Think I Love You. All my teen faves dying is so sad.

Cola is top 10, better late than never, Craig David & Bastille jointly outdo their recent solo stuff for me, on a track that I shouldn't have liked on paper, but actually do! Best thing either has done in quite a while. Pet Shop Boys are in yet again, this time with a track I didn't know off their recharting Fundamental unreleased or obscure tracks, Fugitive at 30. Clean Bandit and Tame Impala have big climbs, Nick Jonas is back, one of the few new entries that is actually new, and 2 Xmas oldies sneak in as the tinsel appears everywhere!

Poor Sufjan! I hope only musicians you don't care for die this week and that you don't go to see any more gigs or indeed venture outside at all for fear of hearing a forgotten classic somewhere.

You may venture outside again once Sufjan has ruled.

amen is actually not bad at all and possibly should've done better on my chart but was pushed out by competition...
nice craig & bastille doing well for you aswell...
impressed at pnau going top 30 too, now top 10 for me...
that marshmello silence track is an odd one for me too, liked it, hated it, now love it again....

good chart!

There is a big gap in quality between oldies (even if we talk about new songs from old acts) and the modern songs from 2017.

Yes, bad bad Popchartfreak, I felt ashamed even as I was compiling it - I had totally expected it to top my chart this week but the Fizz video just edged it, and I do enjoy edging ohmy.gif

There's always next week.... laugh.gif

Hi Toffo,

Yes, Amen is ebbing and flowing weekly for me a the mo, but it's such a great tune.

marshmello, snap, I like it then, got a bit bored with it, now I like it even more than I did.

Mood is everything in chart positions! laugh.gif

cheers!

...not counting The Fizz, though, I expect you'd enjoy seeing it on top, Alex smile.gif

John, it's not only about Bucks Fizz.

Put on the first scale old acts from your chart (David Cassidy, PSB, OMD, Roy Orbison, Beatles, Glen Campbell, George Michael, Bucks Fizz) and any current act (Burak Yeter, Alma, Rita Ora e.t.c.) on the second. laugh.gif

Hi Jordan,

Thanks for the comments, I just don't seem to get bored with Get Low at all, and Train always have a long shelf-life in my charts smile.gif

Yes, Craig D & Bastille, didn;t see that one coming, or me liking it!

Nick Jonas is consistently good it's a shame the boat seems to have sailed in the UK, but then I look at the streaming-based chart and I'm mystifed generally why some tracks are popular laugh.gif

Will comment on your chart monday or tuesday) cos I fly tomorrow on me usual December week in Gran Canaria and I can listen to some of the newies in your chart properly (and other folks) I def need them as good new entries are a bit thin on the ground in my chart the last few weeks! ohmy.gif

cheers!
