My 1984 Charts – March

Image

Fashion Police Alert!

5th March 1984

2 weeks at 1 for Rockwell, while Van Halen Jump to 4 (ho ho) and Nena floats back up to 7. Cheers theme is at 11 in the singles chart, and 4th in my TV chart. I’ve set myself a task to spot music links to the TV list. OK here goes, Comic Strip: French & Saunders had a few hits, as did neil, and The Young Ones. MASH was a number one record. Norm in Cheers was in a Michael Jackson video. Billy Crystal from Soap had a US hit with You Look Marvellous, and another cast member was a Pink Lady in Grease. The Rockford Files theme was a US hit, Patrick MacNee & Honor Blackman had a hit with Kinky Boots (Avengers), The Twilight Zone theme has been featured in many hits, Kylie starred in Aussie soap The Sullivans, Howard Keel (musical star) was in Dallas, and the Doctor Who theme has been a hit and pop stars featured, such as Leee John and others.

Show-off. I had a lot of unemployed TV time on my hands in those days.

Back in chartland, Highest new entries from three former chart-toppers, Culture Club going for the wrong single (the USA went for the right one off the album, Miss Me Blind, never a UK single), but it was still good enough to beat late hero John Lennon’s posthumous and sad Borrowed Time and Soft Cell’s slap-clappy synth Subway song, a bit of a change in sound for them.

The Nana’s were back with one of their best self-written songs, all about Robert de Niro. You talking to me?! A bit of Ravel pops in, courtesy of a bit of fancy ice-skating. OK a bit of perfect ice-skating. Fleetwood Mac’s Christine gets a solo hit of sorts, she’s fab and rejoining them in 2014, yay! Let’s not mention the Fraggle Rock theme, I was, after all, 26 years old and should have known better!

12th March 1984

3 Weeks for Jacko & Gordy Jnr at 1, and Jonesy at 2, poor Howard never did get that number one. Joining such unlucky acts in my charts (of those that have deserved number ones) such as Pink, The Sex Pistols and others. Van Halen hit 3, Nena hits funf, Kool and The Gang get the second of only 2 top 10’s they ever had (Celebration, of course, being the first) and Slade extend their run of top 10 hits to 13 years.

A big climber for Robert De Niro, waiting, and Julia & Co, while 1983 entry It’s Raining Men pops back bigger at 28. Hallelujah! Highest new entry is the cool jazzy sounds of Sade heralding cocktail album music huge sales for many-an 80’s act. Phil Fearon keeps British dance music going, head-flipping during singing and dancing. He was quite fit, you know. Bottom end (shock!) entries for future anthem and protest song Nelson Mandela, influential Afrika Bambaata Funking Renegades and the sound of the next decade, Lionel Richie’s hilarious Hello (video), and err The Alan Parsons Project, punchline of many an Austin Powers gag set-up.

19th March 1984

A big leap to the top for Culture Club’s catchy Miracle, it looked like there was no stopping Boy George at this stage, 4 number ones in and all very different. John Lennon’s last big posthumous release hits 3, and Jacko goes further than anyone in history – in drawing yet another hit single off one mega-album, the 6th. With it the birth of the “flogging it to death, bonus tracks (also Jackson to blame for that) and special editions (ditto) it’s all about milking it rather than doing new stuff” syndrome. It WAS good, of course, and in at 5.

Was (Not Was) get a top 10 hit debut, Hall & Oates get yet another of many, and Mel Brooks gets a rare novelty Top 10 hit. Scritti Politti leap up, the Weather Girls storm (geddit?) the 20, and Lionel Richie greets us all at 30. To be honest it wasn’t him I was looking for, but he could see it my eyes, and it sounded OK for a few weeks. New in: yes, it’s Yes, Trevor Horn acapella fab, Icicle Works tell us Birds Fly, as I found out yesterday when I was on the M27 doing 70 and a pigeon flapped down onto my windscreen. Sadly, he only briefly held the world record for the fastest bird somersault.

Siouxsie swims with horses, Lulu has one of her periodic comebacks in my charts, and Chris Rea has the latest in a very long list of minor chart entries. On TV Joan Rivers was hot and her material still fresh, and TV sitcoms and soaps loomed large in my world as the long days of job applications was too tedious to stand for more than a few hours. It’s soul destroying and anyone doing it now has my sympathy!

26th March 1984

2 weeks on top for Culture Club, and a new challenge from sweet-voiced Green Gartside at 3 with what would be termed EDM these days, and rather pioneering in sound. Lionel gets his 3rd solo top 10 – there aren’t many more after this one though. Name dropping is all the vogue, the Nana’s with Robert De Niro joining Scritti’s Aretha Franklin and Madness’ Michael Caine, not to mention The Specials Nelson Mandela hitting the Top 40. Biggest leap? Siouxsie & The Banshees’ horses! Obviously not on the flat, must be jumpers.

It’s all about an invasion of brilliant new entries though – The Beatles with childhood key 45 Can’t Buy Me Love (one of my dad’s first singles) at 15, one-hit-wonder Madonna showing she ain’t with Lucky Star, rival cyndi does the same with Time After Time, Depeche Mode come back with a new influential industrial sound, Captain Sensible nips in with a bit of nice pop, Simple Minds chart one of their most exciting records of all, Up On The Catwalk, Billy Idol gives a Rebel Yell a year ahead of getting a hit with it, Dead Or Alive debut with a KC & The Sunshine Band cover that in no way comes close to the classic original, Weird Al has a funny video to take the Michael out of Jacko, and finally, Propaganda chart the brilliant Dr Mabuse, a Trevor Horn epic that never got the success it deserved, Brilliant.

2 thoughts on “My 1984 Charts – March

  1. Hi, John!
    What a nice Number One! One of my faves from 1984. I think it could have been my No.1 too had i made the Charts then. Another favourite at the time was Nik Kershaw. Lovely entry from Van Halen at No.4.
