My 1984 Charts – February

Image

OMG!!! I had a perm. Well it was the mid-80’s…..!

7th Feb 1984

MY final Mansfield chart and the music scene goes electric with excitement, video in particular affecting my enjoyment of singles – they were getting creatively arty in their own right, and special effects were getting pretty sophisticated. Witness Queen: Brilliant video, brilliant Roger Taylor song and synth clappy sound, the sentiment is nonsense of course, pop music was fabulous. Queen’s first topper since 1981, and fifth since 1974.

My charts, meanwhile go mad with movement, huge climbers, huge drops, and 13 new entries, almost all of which deserve a you tube link. Great stuff, and lookit that awesome Top 7! Madonna! The Killing Moon, brilliance as used in the fab Donnie Darko, from Echo & The Bunnymen, Relax (many times a hit and million seller). Elton’s single flips for Crystal as the main track now, shoulda been a hit and hits 8 here, ABC get a 5th Top 10, and Nik Kershaw gets highest new entry with the fab Wouldn’t It Be Good.

Ultravox go rock, just like Simple Minds, and get an instant Top 20 hit (not always something they managed in synth-vibe), Hot Choc go Top 20, Duran enter at 28 with the New Moon, Shannon dances into the 40, just ahead of The Smiths, Slade rockin bagpipes at 38, and solo Robin Gibb 15 years after his first chart hit, and 29 years before his last. Time flies.

New lower down? Excellent Rockwell (actually Berry “Motown” Gordy’s shirtless son and Michael Jackson) setting up a 21st Century sampled-hit; Nena’s worldwide German hit, for some reason in English Language in the UK; Van Halen’s well-known Jump, just before they lost the plot when David Lee Roth went solo; Madness’ subtle and gorgeous Michael Caine, one of their best records;; The one-hit wonders Swansway with a retro-groove Soul Train (fab); Stewart “Police” Copeland back almost-solo after 6 years, with Stan(ward) Ridgeway, who Camouflaged himself into the charts in 1986.

TV? Like Pixar movies? Well, they use wonderful actors, especially comic actors like Ed Asner (“Up”) from Mary Tyler Moor Show, Billy Crystal (Monsters Inc) here in Soap, John Ratzenberger (every single Pixar film to date) here as Cliff in Cheers. I love US sitcoms, still do. Top of my list this week though, quite rightly back on top after 20 years of love from me, Doctor Who and some Daleks…

14th Feb 1984

This was the week I waved goodbye to Mansfield, got in my Austin 1800 (dad’s old car) and drove down south to anew life, most precious records onboard, along with a fish tank full of goldfish (hey I kept tropical fish for 14 years and am proud of it!). The rest of the stuff went by lorry, mum and dad already in Poole, wouldn’t you know it, the car developed engine trouble but limped to the newly-built house and then gave up. I was upset when it went to the scrap yard, not just out of sentiment, I was also stuck on a new housing estate, no buses, no job, no friends and no transport. Suddenly I felt very cut off from my old life…

Musically, lots of new entries, all of them obscure this week in contrast to last week’s influx. Queen reigned again, just keeping off The Killing Moon (damn!), and Madness really do leap up from 69 to 7! Madonna gets her first top 5 hit and one really, honestly, truly would not have put money on her becoming a phenomenon, never mind having 30 years of hits nearly! You never know, eh? Big Country get another Top 10 track, ditto Ultravox, and Kool & The Gang get one of their irregular Top 20 hits with the pleasant Joanna.

Elsewhere Smiths at 22, Nena climbs high, Rockwell was being watched, Van Halen Jump-ed up, and Marillion punched their way to 40 and highest new entry. Poor old Judy, always loathed them actually (the Puppets, not Marillion). Cow-punk newcomers Yip Yip Coyote yee-ha into the charts, the Boomtown Rats chart-hits dwindle in the real charts, but still enter mine, and Bette Midler covers the Rolling Stones and places higher in the charts as both enter. Juan Martin, Spanish flamenco guitarist, sneaks in at the rear with his instrumental (with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra)…

On TV some Slags! Top my viewing chart, MASH is the first show I watch in Poole, and The Other Side Of The Tracks slips in , perfectly written and presented by the Encyclopedia of Rock and Pop, Paul Gambaccini, a personal hero of mine. By this time he’d already sent me a letter when I’d spotted some typos and missing tracks in the first edition of the Guinness Hit Singles book. I sincerely hope his enforced “garden leave” goes the same way as DLT’s. People’s memories of what may or may not happened 40 years ago is unreliable (according to the jury), especially when there’s the prospect of large sums of cash for the alleged victims (as noted by me)…

21st Feb 1984

So, first chart in Poole and astonishingly here I still sit 30 years on. Where did the years go…?

3rd week for Queen on top, highest new entry from Men At Work with an actual UK flop (I’d bought it as a maxi-pack single with previous hits included), it wasn’t bad though. Nena of the Noine noine Luftballons hits 10, and a great newie emotive ballad and fab video for Howard Jones at 19, just ahead of classy Style Council’s mood-changing new one. My number one TV show that week (Cheers) had a great TV theme which became a minor hit cos, we all wanted to be where everybody knows your name (NORM!).

Dance music had started to get a bit more street urban, and Street Dance body-popped it’s way into the Top 40, Will Powers popped in for the second time, this time without Carly Simon, but still trying to sound like a computer-generated man (despite being decidedly female), and Hall & Oates had yet another Top 40 in a long run. They only sporadically charted in the UK, but as they were consistently good my charts reflected their US success more…

Lower end titbits: UB40 with another reggae cover, The Romantics pop in with a track that Bucks Fizz had a hit with later in the year in the UK (US hit original here though), Mel Brooks Director-actor-comedian-writer of the genius Blazing Saddles & more has an unlikely rap dance novelty hit roughly based on his latest comedy movie, and it’s still fun to listen to! By way of Illustration, and nothing to do with bragging, just note that I’ve seen 25 of this week’s chart acts in concert….in contrast to only 3 of this week’s UK Top 75 (0r 13 of my 75). Booooo!

28th Feb 1984

All change at the top, Rockwell (and Michael Jackson) on top. As he gets no billing, MJ doesn’t get any credit for this (but it’s his 8th to date). In those days superstars were happy to lend more than a hand as a favour, without getting label credit, and generally without needing songwriting armies too. There are two videos, both a bit spooky, one very 80’s clothes! Howard Jones jumps high to 2, in contrast stylistically, and ditto Break Machine at 5. Hot choc get their final Top 10 single after a long run of 15 consecutive years, more or less.

Very few punk or New Wave bands around by this time, but the Rats go up to 31, Tracey Ullman covers Madness for the highest new entry, Scritti Politti enter with a classic, Green Gartside’s vocals very other-worldly and sweet, the record unusual, and the same could be said of Was (Not Was) a cool American act, almost retro-soul in an 80’s stylee. Tina Turner covers the Beatles, The Beat split and half-reappear as General Public, George McRae’s back after 9 years away, and Roger Daltrey pops in with one of his occasional solo hits (Who?!)

A lot of records drop, most criminally Talk Talk’s classic It’s My Life. Of course it eventually became a hit in the 90’s, but it wasn’t getting a lot of airplay in the UK, I think, as I don’t recall hearing it much… TV-chart increases as I allow video recordings in now. Yes, I owned a (persistently faulty) Betamax machine, and the rubbish Channel 4 reception in Dorset got on my nerves when I wanted to record stuff, and I eventually had to buy loads of VHS tapes to copy over as Betamax was killed off. Booo! To date, I have yet to find time to copy over to DVD all those fab 80’s TV shows and videos. Boooooo!
