6th January 1987

It's 3 weeks on top for Madonna as Slade get a post-christmas high entry at 2, a new peak for the track 13 years late in one of it's many festive appearances until I got so sick of it I can't bear charting it any more. I've not gone mad, oldies only made my charts if they made the UK singles chart, at the time, and Slade sneaked in in the published charts over the Christmas period, so the delay is due to that.

Elkie Brooks gets her first top 10 since Sunshine After The Rain a decade earlier, David Cassidy has a live EP of his biggest 70's UK singles enter at 17, and by this time I was well into 70's nostalgia, the lead track turning out to be the under-appreciated (by me) version of How Can I Be Sure, now one of my all-time fave records and better even then Dusty's version (the roiginal 1972 studio version that is, not this live cover).

Little Richard is back with his first ballad to make my charts, 30 years since his heyday predating me never mind my charts! Siouxsie covers This Wheel's On Fire nicely, albeit not as classic as the original, for 9 years of hits, Swing Out Sister get a soundalike follow-up, UB40 change lead vocalist for the rat in the iamspamspamami Dead Or Alive keep the string of SAW-pop hits coming 2 years on, The Bangles sneak in with a lesser track, and Lou Reed covers Sam n Dave's Soul Man, and brings along Sam to boot...

In my chart "Open Your Heart" wasn't # 1, but spent some weeks at # 2 behind "Keep Each Other Warm" and Lulu - My Boy Lollipop.

'Something In My House' by Dead Or Alive is great, much better than any of their other singles since 'You Spin Me'.

And one of the last 'proper' Hi-NRG productions from SAW, they would go more towards cheesy dance-pop by mid 1987.

Oh this is the same song that Berri had a hit with in 1995! (which heavily sampled the instrumental of 'I Feel Love')

I didn't know the Berri version was a cover until recently.

Open Your Heart is my least liked of Madonna's singles from True Blue. Much prefer the title track, Live To Tell and La Isla Bonita.

Good to see you have started 1987, quite a few big 80s anthems I really like from that year, my favourites would be Living In A Box, It's A Sin, You're The Voice, True Faith and Criticize, looking forward to see where they chart in your personal charts!

Hi Alex, glad you liked madonna to, Keep Each Other warm is still a lovely track, Bucks Fizz so under-appreciated. I think I charted that Cheryl solo single, but I can't recall when or what position so that should be fun finding out smile.gif

Hi Snakey,

Yes that kitchon spam thing is very annoying, there are far more songs using it than you would guess!

Something In My House was their last hurrah I think, prob for that reason you say, it should climb high I think though it's a bit slow off the ground this week biggrin.gif

Yes Sunshine After The rain was an Elkie song, loved the original which was a hit just as I started uni life, the Berri version less loved by me, but happy to see it brought to a new audience.

Cheers!

Hi Chris, Oddly enough, despite its weeks on top of my chart, I agree with you about the other singles nowadays - I think it dominated my chart in a quiet period over Christmas for classics (for me) laugh.gif

cheers!

Good choices there Snakey smile.gif Well, without giving it away, 2 of those top my chart during the year, one tops my chart on a remix a few years later and the other two go top 10 (or top 5, I forget!) laugh.gif Ooh the suspense! laugh.gif

13th January 1987

It's a first week on top for David Cassidy since 1972 when he had 2 of 3 chart-toppers with The Partridge Family, but my residual affection for his solo singles - none of them topped my chart - is enough for these lesser versions to top my chart in combination by way of compensation in particular for How Can I Be Sure which remains one of my tear-jerking singles in the original version, but which fell short of my top 10 at the time. a-ha keep the top 10's coming, Paul Simon makes it 2 in a row for the first time in 14 years, and Alison Moyet gets a 4th solo or 7th in total.

A big climb for Siouxsie's Wheel into the 20, Little Richard goes top 40, and Randy Crawford is the highest new entry 8 years since she had her Streetlife with The Crusaders debut a run of solo follow-ups. In at 44, it's annoying Jacking sparking off - obviously I quite liked it at first, but it led to dross and this off-spin of House got annoying quickly. Steve Silk Hurley's minute in the sun. At 53, it's 5-years since her last hit so it must be Carly Simon: check out the dates: 1972/1977/1982/1987 are all debuts or comebacks regular as clockwork!

In at 58 it's Drum Theatre who I think supported the Human League who I saw at the Poole Arts Centre (now The Lighthouse, despite not being any such thing) this week, which explains their tracks going back up, and my listing of my fave tracks that night (they were fab, despite me being quite high at the back and having to watch the girls legs only when they sang on a raised platform at the back of the stage) has a lovely co-incidence: Rock & Roll was my top Gary Glitter track the week before for his annual Xmas/New Year gig (it was always hits-packed party-time) and the same song was done good by Phil & co, the Human League being the current regular reliably fab hits-packed party time leading up to christmas most years for the last couple of decades. Happily you can still say you like the Human League.

Jack Your Body was quite an unusual track to get to #1, I think the success of Paul Hardcastle's 19 a few years earlier paved the way for further underground dance tracks and house in general becoming popular (before the genre started getting a life of its own after the rise of raving in late 1987 and 1988).

By the rise of 'Jacking' I take it you mean all the Mirage 'Jack mixes' that started making the chart in 1987!

By 1988, there were also some other house songs making the chart with 'Jack' in the title. My favourite is 'Jack That House Built' by Jack n Chill!

I think them and producers Stock Aitken Waterman were trying to be trendy and joining the house trend.

Anyway, the lyrics which speak unfavorably of rock artists and older radio disc jockeys do leave a bad taste in the mouth sad.gif

From all 80s Madonna singles only "Papa Don't Preach" wasn't represented in my chart and almost every her early track was a big hit.

Here is the list with my top 20 favourite Madonna singles, compiled in 2015.

I love "Like A Prayer", but it was overplayed to death that's why this single was finished a little lower than must be.

Hi Snakey, yes I mean the non-naughty version, and some of those mentioned. I quite liked that Jack n Chill track, though I cant recall how it did in my charts, part of the fun of revisiting them! House itself was huge in influence, Pet Shop Boys notably borrowed elements (Chris was a huge clubber in those days) quite apart from the piano-House domination of dance in the late-80's/90's.

Hi Alex, Dear Jessie is so under-rated, not even a single in the USA, yet so sweet. Interesting choices of Madonna singles, you liked her Evita period stuff more than I did (though I love Evita), and on the whole you like her ballads more than I did at the time (though some have grown since). I agree about overplaying of classics. I love Like A Prayer but would rather hear lesser-played Madonna tracks as that will make it fresher after a good long gap of not hearing it.

All four first Madonna albums and first three from Kylie are true classic of pure pop.
From late albums "Evita" era was the most successful in my charts, the last big era was "American Life" when "Love Profusion" became her first # 1 after Evita days and last # 1 for Madonna in my chart.

You will see "Dear Jessie" success in my retro 1989 charts.

From my seven "years ago" charts I already did the first week charts for 4 (1949, 1969, 1979 and 1999).
My first charts for 1959, 1989 and 2009 years will come soon.

'Dear Jessie' is nice, it reminds me a bit of 'Moonlight Shadow' by Mike Oldfield for some reason and I like the violin production.

Of course Rollergirl had a Eurodance version in 2000, which I quite like!

Rollergirl is only the one Eurodance singer, which I love and had the hits in my chart.
"Dear Jessie" was in my top 10, but her most successful song was "Superstar" in 2000.
