but being insta A-listed didn't guarantee you a hit for what I can see,
for instance Breathe are insta A-listed with their flop Jonah smile.gif

Thanks for posting. Great to see some retro playlists and to be reminded of the days where tracks used to drop down the playlist on their way out.

I never knew Frankie Valli re-issued 'December 63' in '88.

There probably are, it's very time consuming to post the full runs of every song on the playlist and Ne Plus Ultra may not have all the playlists to hand to be able to do that.

Why was there no C-List in the 1991 one posted a few months back but one in this earlier editions? Interesting that the number one by Phil Collins drooped A-C 😮. And I note the Human League were instant A-Listed still at this stage as were Duran Duran.

All the cheese stick in the C-List such as Sinitta and Sabrina!
