My 1989 Charts – March

Image

La Belle Paris…

 

5th March 1989

Donna Summer gets her first chart-topper since I Feel Love, 12 years earlier, with this joyous and yet sad song (for me, sad memories). A great melody, and even the SAW hit machine helped with the bursting enthusiasm. A welcome break from anxiety and worry was the Nana’s Top 5 Beatles cover, Help! In with a bang, though, it’s Madonna, a new look, flowing locks, controversial video and an awesome gospel song in at 7.

S’Express get a third Top 10, Jacko keeps his Top 10 run going, and Jesus Jones freak it at 16. In from nowhere, a novelty hit – Kon Kan at 18. Oh it was yodellingly funny, and not least for sampling Lynn Anderson’s Rose Garden, an old fave. Def Lep meanwhile rock it to 20.

A supergroup return at 28, the Wilbury’s, but minus the late great Roy. A great singalong gem. Inexplicably flopped, just like Jesus Jones. Gene Pitney, another great, gets a solo hit with a cover of Roy Orbison’s 60’s classic, so he’s there in spirit if not in fact. Jason Donovan follows up his Kylie duet with his own (lesser) SAW pop ditty, Randy Newman and Lou Reed add a bit of non-chart class to my list, 20 years on from making waves in the late 60’s, albeit waves that didn’t sell much at the time. Meanwhile I was playing The Fifth Dimension’s hits album a lot as my golden oldie.

12th March 1989

2 weeks for Donna, and Tom, Jeff, George and Bob line up at the end of 7. Kon Kan apologise at 10, and Paul Carrack gets a rare top 20 solo hit, getting a day off from Mike + The Mechanics at the time.

Highest new entry, perennial faves The Bee Gees with a great obscure flop track, Ordinary People being infused with the sadness of recent loss, younger brother Andy Gibb. Don’t do drugs! Elsewhere Randy Newman gets a bonafide Top 40 entry – and it’s not from Toy Story! New Order enter at 50, better quality than the hideous Poison bleating on about rose thorns at 67 for one week only. Thankfully not much longer till Nirvana did away with hair-do bland pomp metal.

19th March 1989

3 weeks for Donna, keeps off Ma-Donna at 2, and her 3rd number 2, and what a classic. If it ever makes the UK charts again, I wouldn’t bet against it getting to number 1! Big leap for Jesus Jones and their deliciously distorted racket of pumping guitars to 8, and not the last time they’d go Top 10. Fuzzbox and their Thunderbirds tribute up to 15, Sheena Easton having a massive jump to 17 (spot TV Highlander Brit actor Adrian Paul in the video), Guns ‘n’ Roses in at 39, INXS 45, and the late great Roy with a Bono song at 47. Quietly in at 50, the influential Soul II Soul…

26th March 1989

In at number one, not for the first time, a bundle of Monkees tracks on an EP, headed by major classic Daydream Believer. The Monkees were one of my huge childhood obsessions, TV show, records, bubblegum cards, and the rock fraternity welcomed them in (rightly) as credible musicians and songwriters. The British scummy press, however, took offence that they had been CREATED, shock horror, and pounded that theme relentlessly for decades, sniffily ignoring the substantial body of work. By the time of punk, they were being quoted as influences and an EP charted again in 1980 and topped my chart. By 1989 they were touring the UK (I was there) back together, minus Mike, and this EP charted.

Straight in at 9, a dance classic from Coldcut which introduced Lisa Stansfield, still releasing good northern-soul/Philly-inspired records in 2014. New at 23, and really a final fling from The Bangles, but Eternal Flame is a great ballad. Back again at 34, 1988 flop Midnight Oil, Roy leaps to 18, just behind new Order, and at the tail-end of the chart a brace of variable cover versions. Pat & Mick sounds like the punchline to a very non-PC joke from the 70’s, but it was actually 2 DJ’s who should have known better. Slap!

  1. So female Top 5, John! 🙂
    Even Top 7, i would say.
    I counted 4 songs from Fleetwood Mac and 3 songs from Kim Wilde in the Chart. Lovely No.1!

    • Thanks Andrej, yes all very Mac’ey and Wilde-ey in those days, and shortly to be very madonna-ey. The girls certainly were making pop inroads in the late 80’s on their way to world pop domination! 🙂

      cheers!
      john
