Here is the chart for 5 July 1992... with Top 5 debuts for Smart E's(!) and Jimmy Nail - at the time the #3 debut by Christopher Howell, Tom Orton and Nick Arnold (Smart E's) was the joint-highest ever for a uncharted act matching the #3 debut by Crystal Waters' “Gypsy Woman” a year earlier. The track is based around the piano refrain from the theme from Sesame Street and latched on to the so-called Toytown Techno trend of remixing children's TV theme/information films into rave tracks that was started with The Magic Roundabout sampling Mark Summers “Summers Magic” in 1990. That was eventually a #27 hit early the following year - and was followed quickly by the Prodigy's “Charley” which stormed into the UK Top 10 months later. This trend appeared to reach its peak this month with the #11 by Urban Hype “A Trip To Trumpton” being a remix of the theme from Trumpton, and would the following week jump to #6. No idea why Jimmy Nail was so popular at the time (Auf Wiedersehen, Pet?) but “Ain't No Doubt” was his first hit in 7 years, went straight in at #5 and would be the song that would depose the current #1 the following week.

Erasure sat at number 1 for their fifth and final week at the chart summit with their only ever #1 in a career of 16 Top 10 hits - The “ABBA-Esque EP” - a four track EP of ABBA covers, featuring among others “Take a Chance on Me” which was played in the re-cap at the head of the show and “Lay All Your Love On Me” which was played at the end, and was the one I assume with most of the video/airplay, although videos were made for all four tracks.

Lots of other new entries here, including the rather bizarre but wonderful Was (Not Was) at 20 with Kim Bassinger and Ozzy Osbourne on vocal duties- I kid you not!

“Motorcycle Emptiness” by the Manics is probably my fave here - I loved a lot of their 90s output but that was their peak for me. : )

Certainly one of my top 5 manic tracks, and it was the one that converted me...

I used to obsess over Erasure around this period and I was so happy when they got to #1, even if it was with a covers EP. I still like their version of Lay All Your Love On Me and they did choose the best ABBA track to lead with.
