26th August 2018

It's a Hey Jude! 50 years ago today The Beatles greatest single was released and sometime during the following chart week my dad came home from work at RAF Swinderby and told me The Beatles had gone to Number One. That sparked my interest in the pop charts, I discovered Alan Freeman's Sunday Pick Of The Pops chart rundown, and from then on I became obsessed with music charts. I had been obsessed by pop music for at least 4 years already. Sometime later in 1968 I did my first personal chart, and a few more followed in 1969, but they weren't weekly. By 1971 they WERE weekly, by 1972 I was doing 4 or 5 a week as I went chart mad. However, once I managed to buy the first published book of pop singles charts, which gave me access to information on the 60's and early 70's, I decided that the start point was Hey Jude, and retrospectively compiled charts based on what I liked at the time for all missing weeks - which was still more or less what I liked in the early/mid 70's. So the "week-ending date for this chart (if I followed the UK singles chart) would be 1st Sept 1968, near enough as dammit 50 years since my charts "started".

So Happy Anniversary To Me, and Happy 50th Beatles Hey Jude! Still an epic single which has charted in the 60's, 70's, 80's, 00's in the UK charts and mine both, and now in the teenies too. It hit the top everytime in my charts cos I'm a bit of a fan. Aretha Franklin's I Say A Little Prayer was also in the very first chart and is number 2 this week. Very appropriate, albeit for tragic reasons, and she adds another entry lower down, with another waiting in the wings.

Biggest climber is Calvin Harris & Sam Smith, up to a promising 6 - Calvin Harris' 6th top 10 including 2 chart-toppers, and Sam's 4th including one chart-topper with Naughty Boy. Keeping up with the kiddie oldies theme The Partridge Family TV theme, as featured in Ant-Man & The Wasp, becomes their 10th top, David Cassidy's 16th including solo hits. Alan Walker gets a 4th top 40, Madonna's Like A Prayer gives her a 60th birthday top 40, Pet Shop Boys original version of Eighth Wonder's I'm Not Scared (aka Patsy Kensit) charts for the first time 30 years late, and Ariana Grande gets a second hit of the year, her 10th in all, including chart-topper Love Me Harder.

Hello John!
Amazing #1, I still remember a couple of years ago, that my classmates and I sang this at school! That's how I learned about this song, however I knew about The Beatles a long time ago, before I listened to "Hey Jude". True story.
Also like the big gains for "Darkside", "Natural" and "Missing U"!
And I like the debuts for "Breathin" and "Eastside"!
Great chart as always!

Hey there John hi.gif

Excellent choice of #1 *.* It's hard to pick a favourite Beatles song but I feel like 'Hey Jude' is probably my favourite of their absolute classics. I had such an amazing time at the Beatles Story museum earlier in the month and it's resulted in me revisiting their discography all over again heart.gif

My favourite modern new entry is 'breathin' by Ariana Grande <3 can definitely see why that's been the most cherry-picked album track, it's so good.

Great stuff happy.gif

Thanks Sergej! I love anecdotes for songs in everyone's life, they stay with you for life! I would have been very enthusiastic about music lessons if they had pop music in it, even old pop music, but I think it was mainly classical or jazz. Yawn! laugh.gif

Thanks Alex! I can hardly believe it myself, it doesn't seem that long at all since I was getting all excited about Those Were The Days knocking off Hey Jude. I adored that record! laugh.gif

Hey there Jade - I still haven't got to the Beatles museum yet sad.gif I think in honour of your visit the least they could have done was a special version of Hey Jude just for you - Hey Jade! laugh.gif It did rechart on itunes a few weeks ago after Carpool Karaoke, so it's sort of official but delayed for a special reason for me!

Yes I agree about Breathin', must be the next single

cheers!

Hey James!

Glad you're loving Aretha tracks at the top end, thanks for the picks and comments! I agree about Janet Jackson, it's her first proper pop tune in 15 years - probably out of fashion sadly, but great to hear her back on poptastic form. I used to enjoy Mad'house, I was almost half-suspicious it was madonna herself for a while when I first heard it! laugh.gif

cheers!
