11th November 2018

It's straight in at 1 for a 3rd time on top for The Cars and Drive, their 1984 hauntingly moving song about mental illness, which became the spine-tingling moment at Live Aid in 1985 when it became a hit all over again when matched with famine footage. The odd mix made it heartbreaking all over again, and it topped for a second time. This time round it's a new orchestral version from an album of 80's classics re-imagined as orchestral works. It doesn't work with all of the choices, but 3 of the more radical and tasteful versions that it suits all chart again - another 1984/5 chart-topper from Foreigner, and Bronski Beat also from 1984. They join Radio Gaga, Queen's '84 chart-topper which climbs into the 20 following a viewing of the Bohemian Rhapsody movie where it was the re-made Live Aid footage that showcased it again. Queen also enter with Seven Seas Of Rhye, a 1974 chart-topper for me, We Will Rock You, 1977 former chart-topper, and others including 2 new entries from A Night At The Opera, which has re-entered the UK charts is response to the movie: Love Of My Life has never charted before, and neither has the fab '39 - in at 39.

That means just one week on top for Black Atlass after entering last week, as veteran rapper Ice Cube, known mostly for his brilliant It Was A Good Day social commentary song from 1989, returns with his career-best new song Arrest The President. It's brilliant, pure vitriolic poetry spouting so many truths in clever ways it should become a "How To Do It" study. The last time a great record slagged-off a sitting President it was Stevie Wonder's You Haven't Done Nothin' in 1974, which a more generalised critique: this is one is very very specific, and doesn't let other younger more successful rappers get away with their stupidity either, telling it like it is. Reminds me of when I loved rap, when it was saying something, not self-ego-boosting money-chasing sexist cliches, as some less talented artists have tended to drift into.

It's a hugely busy week, 18 new entries pushing out loads of tracks early and abruptly, and many big falls and climbs amid the changes: Rhys shoots into the 40 at 9, The Knocks and Sofi Tukker go top 10, Boyzone leap into the top 30 as Take That climb and Backstreet Boys enter at 59, their first new track in 13 years to chart, and helping to knock out New Kids On The Block and preventing an 80's boyband reunion. If you had said in 1998 that I would be simultaneously charting new tracks by the aforementioned in 2018 I would have been incredulous. And yet what were the Chances?

Ariana Grande's good UK chart-topper enters the 40 her 3rd of the year, Muse also grab a 3rd of the year, Meghan Trainor also grabs a 3rd, and there are returns from Ariana & The Rose, a top5 act from a few years back, ditto Nicky Romero, Walk Off The Earth, X Amabassadors, and oldie Star, from Kiki Dee, is back following some itunes sales TV ad-pushed action, a top 10 from early 1981.

Hi John! Very impressed to see for KING & COUNTRY on their alternative take on Christian genre with "joy.". Great to see more Swedish starfish in charts. Also, great to see the symphonic versions of old songs while I have "Take On Me" in one week's best new releases of New Music Friday. Nice to see Ariana and The Rose in your chart and I will definitely have a wee listen! Great overall!

Hi Uhsting, thanks for calling in! smile.gif

I hadn't realised joy. was a Christian track but it makes sense for an overwhelmingly positive message song. I'm very much into message songs at the moment, positive, critical (Ice Cube) or just "why can't we all just get along cos we SO need to right now" (my Buzzjack Song choice) cool.gif

Hope you like Ariana & The Rose! smile.gif

cheers!

New Christmas single from Bucks Fizz.


Hi Alex, thanks for the tip, I played it and I bought it right away, my first new Xmas single for this year, sweet old fashioned video and xmas mood. My seconf xmas purchase was...also The Fizz, and their lovely version of my fave Xmas of 1988 track, Keeping The Dream Alive - it wasn't really a xmas song as such but had the xmas vibe with the Paul McCartney-ish production and melody, and suits them well! smile.gif

Thanks as always AH, and yes on some of the tracks you wonder why they bothered! Farting around the edges of a classic just detracts from it's perfection, but if you re-invent it it takes on a new mood that is different from the original, and then there's a point to it. I love that Mylo track, and the Judy Tzuke samples are just gorgeous, the lushness is topnotch, SO glad you entered it into BJSC and made me love it! Thanks! biggrin.gif

cheers! cool.gif
