I was listening to the chart show for this earlier today actually, as it was put on Mixcloud! Here's part 1 and part 2 if anyone wants to listen.

For those who missed it or want to revisit; to mark the 10th anniversary five years back we re-ran the first Buzzjack chart show - this was actually the chart that followed the one in the OP where Chico held the #1 for a 2nd week

Thread here.

(eurgh at Chico though, so cringe - PCD deserved)

5 brand new entries all from different artists in the Top 10, that puts us in a different chart era for starters!

'Sewn' by The Feeling is brilliant and of course proof at #3 that a superior version of that track existed years before TikTok was thought up.

Note the Michael Jackson entry at #15 from when he tried to replicate the Elvis re-issue success of 2005 and thankfully failed.

Jack Johnson shockingly low here, that track never did make the Top 10. Same with Hot Chip and 'Over And Over'.

Both of those do feel a lot more well remembered these days than their chart peaks suggested!

Sewn is definitely my favourite new entry from the week though, I hadn't heard that one in many many years! wub.gif

Agreed on both counts. It's a shame Sewn was beaten by those shocking new entries in the Top 2 though.

Some of the follow up ‘Feeling’ singles seem remembered more than ‘Sewn’ for some reason!

Favourites from the Top 40

3 Put Your Records On
5 No Tomorrow
6 Thunder in My Heart
12 You Got the Love
13 Boys Will Be Boys
15 Rock With You
16 Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down
20 Standing On My Own Again
21 All Time Love
24 You Spin Me Round
25 The JCB Song
26 Hung Up
28 Better Together
32 Over and Over

16/40 isn’t great, particularly as 4 are effectively reissues.

Freemasons' Watchin is obviously the highlight for me the production is fab, it obviously was the height of the disco house trend in chart dance music at the time with Hi-Tack and a Meck and Leo Sayer song also in the chart. The latter not being so random and 'of the time' when soon we may have a Majestic and Boney M song in the chart ohmy.gif

I liked the Jack Johnson track at the time, Because of You is another very good Kelly Clarkson song.
Boys Will Be Boys is good but a bit jokey and overplayed as a soundbed in TV programmes since, Gold Digger is good but I prefer Touch the Sky.

You Spin Me Round, great and it really sounds different to anything else in the charts when it charted in 1985.

The Fall Out Boy song is good but its no Thnks Fr Th Mmrs. The Charlotte Chruch song is nowhere near as good as Crazy Chick. The Shakira song sounds a bit 90s alternative, its very good, I had forgotten about that song.

Thanks for those, listening to it now! What on earth did they do for the first hour of the chart show back then as they just whizzed through 40-21! So much nostalgia even with hearing Zane Lowe and Steve Lamacq doing commentary on the new entries

I think that would have been the albums?
