31st December 2017

It's Aretha Franklin's orchestral oldie on top, almost exactly 44 years since the gorgeous Stevie Wonder song first charted for me, and it's been a week of oldies xmas invasions, as a refuge from the stress of having a father unexpectedly in hospital from xmas eve (and still there) while caring for a mother who needs help with everything. Lots of TV playlist oldies has created a nostalgic xmas chart invasion, belatedly, some of them having charted dozens of times before, some just a couple or a few times.

The Fizz make it 2 top 10's with the christmassy Home For My Heart, and also give Rick Wakeman his first ever top 10 singles chart credit - though he was tinkling the ivories in my top 10 way back in the early 70's on many records. Paloma gets a second top 10 of the year, Streets Of London incredibly makes my top 20 for the first ever time, criminal for such a great song! Joe Goddrad heavily samples a 70's disco soul flop from Brainstorm, one I didn't know at the time (or since) so I've given them credit, cos it's great.

Buckingham McVie return for 5th track off the Mac-side-project album, Oh Wonder get a second chart single, Taylor Swift gets her first of the year, and Jose Feliciano's xmas oldie finally charts - largely because I keep hearing it, having spent the best part of 45 years never having come across the 1970 track at all. Jose Feliciano had a top 10 fab hit with me in my first charting days in late 1968, with the Doors song, Light My Fire - a stylised version covered by Will Young more recently - and then...nothing. Never made my chart again, not even his current Jools Holland stuff. So, a new chart record - albeit with an oldie - for Jose, as his 49-year-drought comes to an end and he finally gets a follow-up.

Thanks Jordan,

I re-set my oldies every year - I include re-entries during the same calendar year as part of the run but if it's a good break and a different year I like to see how the different chart runs compare in each year, including peak, weeks on chart and "sales", though I also keep a running total of "sales" too. So John & Yoko have been appearing in my chart since I was 14 years old when I was totally mad on it over xmas 1972, and it hit number one. It's topped my chart many times since but not in the 21st century as I prefer to go with less familiar (to me) xmas songs mostly these days! Elton's xmas song made my top 10 in 1973 but wasn't one I loved compared to his other songs at the time, but I've remained fond of it with time passing.

Fall Out Boy is a goodie, it's a shame they don't chart singles anymore in the UK. I'm glad you know The waitresses song, I wasn't even sure it would be known at all in the US! Just bought Andy Grammer's track to appear on my next car CD (I'm still old-fashioned laugh.gif )

Cheers
