My 1979 Charts – June

Monastir 1979

5th June 1979

Still at College, towards the end of the second year and plans for a trip to california (after working over the summer to pay for it) were firming up. Meanwhile I became enraptured by a TV mini series called Centennial. Part of my degree involved American Studies – history, geography and literature (I always have had a thing for the USA!) – so this series was quite relevant to me, being as it covered an era I’d been studying, the Native American getting wiped out at worst, relocated onto badlands at best, in the movement West. It pretty much covered generations of settlers with an all-star cast, much-loved actors by me like David Janssen, Lynn Redgrave and new star Gregory Harrison. I loved it so much I wrote a letter of comment to Radio Times when it finished, which they printed, yay! It’s taken 35 years but I have a Dutch DVD version of the series now. Unlike new Glen A. Larson series Sword Of Justice (action-adventure) which I also liked a lot – only to never be repeated or available ever again.

Back in pop land Debbie Harry ruled, everywhere it seemed, a pin-up fave of the boys at College, and Blondie duly topped my chart for the third time with the fab Sunday Girl. Ooh la la! ELO were also huge, and go up to 4 with a slightly-below-par single (but only slightly) while the fab Tubes shoot up to 5. Love that melody. Dollar’s synth-poppiness gets them a top 10 for the second time, The Skids shoot up to 11, Mcfadden & Whitehead at 17 prove there’s no stopping ‘em now, The Shads get a rare Top 20 hit and Tubeway Army rocket up to 22 after an enigmatic TOTP performance.

Highest new entry is future UK topper Ring My Bell, Linda Ward sounding catchy for a while, and beating out more street-cred disco of The Bombers in at 30. Gerry Rafferty get’s a 3rd Top 40 hit, Night Owl entering at 37, and Edwin Starr gets 2 in a row thanks to some happy radio plays. The Village People get a 3rd hit, a lowly 58 to start with, but future-anthem Go West would eventually top my charts – by Pet Shop Boys and their genius take on this fairly standard gay disco track. Hot Choc make a statement about Mindless Boogie, and get rewarded with a relative flop, but hey they get 9 consecutive years of hits in my charts, big fan was I. Not many new entries though, and the short list of TV shows makes me think I was away somewhere, maybe London with the art or geography shtudents who were my natural crowds of friends. Must check my diary if I ever find it…(you didn’t think my ramblings were from notes did you!?)

12th June 1979

2 weeks for Blondie on top, a lot of shuffling abaht, but not much going on, really. Only 6 new entries, top one from Linda Lewis at 39 with a musical track from Evita. It’s fab, and how I wish some of Linda’s early TV performances had survived (circa 1973 she was a singer-songwriter, hitting with Rock A Doodle Do, then a disco diva covering It’s In His Kiss decades before Cher, and eventually morphed into backing singer for 80’s pop stars). She had a unique voice, very girlie, which I loved. At 54 it’s another gem from Squeeze, a whole soap opera in over 3 minutes or so, Glen Tilbrook showing his great vocals this time solo. Patti Smith gets a follow-up in my charts at least (Frederick), John Williams gets his original version of Cavatina in the chart to join the dropping Shads, and The Scorpions debut over a decade before they got that huge hit, making do with 75.

Elton’s future number one (21st century that is) goes Top 40 (that’s one up on the UK Top 40, hooray!), The Skids go Top 5 for the 2nd time in a row, Earth Wind & Fire get their 3rd Top 10 hit, and Anita Ward ding dong dings up to 9. Happily the far better Tubeway Army and Sister Sledge go top 20 along with Donna Summer and Quantum Jump. Centennial still rules on TV for me as Levi Zendt starts to establish the town of Centennial and marry a native Indian girl after being traumatically widowed after just getting married, running away from his Quaker community. It’s not just history, it’s soap drama!

19th June 1979

In which nothing much happens music chart-wise. So little in fact that the awful Gertcha sneaks in at the bottom of the charts. hey ho, at least the top end was still fab, Blondie getting three weeks on top and Tubeway ASrmy challenging at 3. Sister Sledge get their first (but not last) Top 10 hit, Gerry Rafferty his 6th Top 20, and Squeeze rocket right up the junction at 16 for their 3rd Top 20. Even the Village People get their third Top 20, and I don’t recall liking it that much at the time – the chart position says otherwise!

The Clash at last break into the 30 with the old Bobby Fuller Four 60’s USA hit, while, hooray! New Entries! Nick Lowe gets Cracking Up at 50, he was always pretty decent. Olivia Newton-John enters at 57 with one I rather liked a lot, being as it became an American holiday hit on US radio in 2 months, but which didn’t do much in the UK. Trust me it sounded great cruising down hot sunny Californian desert highways! Deeper Than The Night! Eddy Grant is back, meanwhile! Eh? Back for me, as he was very much a voice and face I knew from Top Of The Pops in the 60’s with the Equals, Viva Bobby Joe especially, and here he was 10 years on with dreadlocks and looking and sounding all Bob Marley. Living On The Frontline was throbbing and fab.

TV? A Python revival on TV, Centennial was still gripping me, and new pop show Jukebox Jury outdoes TOTP. I say new. Actually it was another childhood fave which had been revived (pop stars review new releases then get embarrassed for slagging them off when said new record release artist pops out from backstage). It was fun.

26th June 1979

A new Number One, hooray, and the chart comes alive again with great new entries. Tubeway Army gives Gary Numan his first (and last) chart-topper with the awesome Are ‘Friends’ Electric. Gerry Rafferty gets his 3rd Top 5 hit, at 3, Squeeze their 2nd Top 10, and Quantum jump up with that masked man to 10. Highest new entry is Amii Stewart, back with another disco-fied 60’s classic, this one Light My Fire at 14. I had huge love for the Jose Feliciano gentle latin version, which went top 10 in 1968 in my charts, and it was becoming obvious that this great Doors song was pretty indestructible, it can be done in any style, by anyone, and it’s still good, cos the song is just so perfect.

Even better, the Beach Boys were back proper, a year ahead of their triumphant reunion tour (I was there Knebworth 1980) with a fab album and a bonafide hit, this time the Bach-based Al Jardine song, the gorgeous Lady Lynda. Wings were back in Old Siam, Sir, rocking it this time at 25 and Supertrtamp’s Breakfast In America nestled next to The Logical Song in at 33. Voyager have a halfway hotel at 35, and The Dooleys change tack, this time giving the two girls vocal duties, with a song that sounded like an Abba album track, and a rather damn fine one at that. It still sounds good, and it still sounds Abba 1979.

Toto show their jazzy side, soon to be their only side, as Georgie Porgie kisses the girls at 55. That topnotch popstar Kevin Keegan (and part-time footballer hero of the 70’s) has a pop at a hit at 58 – basically, it’s a Smokie record. Without the harmonies. In at 63, a record that has yet to make the UK top 40, criminally. Another huge American holiday radio hit, Driver’s Seat still sounds marvellous and fresh, and is long overdue being a hit. The annoying thing is they are British, and the USA recognised it as a classic, but in the New Wave climate of 1979 the UK snubbed it.

There’s still more: Art Garfunkel’s follow-up to Bright Eyes, a 50’s US ballad classic, the wonderful Since I Don’t Have You, was the first version to chart in my charts, later Guns ‘n’ Roses had a good go, but the best version was never a hit (also the most faithful to the original Skyliners version) – Don McLean – except in my chart. Thin Lizzy are back, starting to sound a tad formulaic, at 68, and the jazzy fab Chuck E’s In Love pops in for Rickie Lee Jones at 75. Phew!
