My Sept 1985 charts

w/e 2nd September 2017

having peaked at 5 and dropped, it’s a sudden climb to top my charts for Bucks Fizz’ chart-flop (but fab) You And Your Heart So Blue, their 4th time on top. I think I bought the record in the cut-price basket and got to play it loud, as it should be. Mick & Dave go top 10 along with Bry just behind, all 3 of ’em dad dancing. The Thompson Twins shoot up into the 20 with Don’t Mess With Doctor Dream, not one of their bigger UK chart hits, but I liked it. Amii Stewart takes her 2 remixed 1979 top hits back into the 20, Red Box’ fabness drives into the 30, and highest new entry is the obscure follow-up to the classic Life In A Northern Town from Dream Academy, at 29.

Bananarama ask not to be disturbed, just about the last of their Jolly Swainey jangletoons, as Mai Tai also drink to making the top 40, and a rock classic, err, limps up to 36 for Bryan Adams, possibly cos I recalled the Summer of ’69 very well and it sounded much better than that! Blancmange are back, What’s Your Problem? they ask – to which the answer is, no more big hits, sadly. Enjoyed them recently in concert though (2016). There’s another well-recalled song from Bonnie Tyler popping in at 60, that was decent enough, but no Total Eclipse Of The Heart. Laura Branigan is also back, with a track I’ve forgotten, Dio rocks in, and best of all a ballad from Dusty Springfield brings her back into my chart, more in line with her 60’s stuff than the fab gentle disco of Baby Blue in 1979.

w/e 10th September 1985

It’s Dancing In The Live Aid Street as Bowie & Jagger outdo the Martha & The Vandellas original in my charts – though not in terms of quality! Red Box rocket to 2, catchy left-wing-pop, and The Twins get a 3rd or 4th top 10 and Dan Hartman a second, some 7 years after the first (Instant Replay). There’s loads of new entries in a busy chart, and Blancmange jump into the 40 at 22, Bonnie Tyler to 29 for 9 years of hits, and 2 early 80’s reissued Tears For Fears singles make the 40 belatedly – though Pale Shelter did it in 1982 in re-recorded form, a track used as the basis to the fab The Weeknd’s Secrets, which topped my chart months back as I write (2017).

Highest actual new track – If I Was. Midge Ure’s solo mini-masterpiece followed the Ultravox break-up, and gave him a first solo hit since his cover of No Regrets went top 10 in 1982, and 9 years since he was very young and Slik, Forever And Ever. Carly Simon, as ever in those days, back with the occasional minor hit at 38, her best since Will Powers’ Kissing With Confidence hit 2 in my charts in 1983 (she did all the singing). Billy Idol’s early 80’s American hit finally also charts in the UK, and recharts here, as follow up to White Wedding: Rebel Yell!

Others, Marillion dilly-dillying, Bucks Fizz are Magical, though actually less magical than the track dropping from the top of my charts, Strawberry Switchblade cover a 1976 top 10 for Dolly Parton, that’ll be Jolene then, Hipsway do a spot of gospel, the Frankie gals miss a perfect opportunity to retitle a song Dancing On The Jagged Sledge, Heaven 17 and Propaganda lease out their lead vocalists for a duet I’ve forgotten – though like the sound of it so I’m bound to youtube it and buy it as I didn’t get it at the time. Scritti Politti are back with a laid-back Green sounding American hit, Lloyd Cole causes a mild commotion a year on from Perfect Skin, and China Crisis get a paper cut. Phew!

18th September 1985

It’s a new number one, thankfully knocking off Bowie & Jagger from the top after one week only – Red Box and the fab Lean On Me. Tears For Fears grab another top 5, their 5th, with oldie Suffer The Children rocketing up. Blancmange also grab another top 10, their 3rd, and Stevie Wonder hits 9, 17 years after his first (For Once In My Life, a cover of a Tony Bennett minor hit from 1967). Stevie’s also back assisting uncredited on Cliff’s new song from Dave Clark’s musical album of the future musical Time, and Cliff is also 17 years in to his career.

Midge Ure shoots up to 12, If I Was, and it’s a magical rise to 26 for Bucks Fizz, back in the UK album chart this very week after an absence of 30-odd years – albeit known as The Fizz, and only three-quarters of the original line-up. Highest new entry is Madonna, she’s a UK singles chart Angel in 1985, totally her year, no question. Changing the face of megapop to female vocalists. In at 36, a future shoddy hit cover for Eric Clapton, but here the brilliant original from Greg Phillinganes, Behind The Mask. Featured on Jonathan King’s Entertainment USA, and still not a hit.

Rene and Renata have split up, and he’s with Angela now – just kidding, it’s a smooth soul act newly in, as The Cure are back swiftly with the fab Wardrobe-on-a-cliff Close To Me. At 60, Diana Ross follows up a great single with one that should have been brilliant, written by 2 Gibb brothers and Michael Jackson, who helps more than a little on production and vocals. Di had to wait a few months for a proper Bee Gees classic song though, without Jacko to bring it down a notch (clearly saving his best efforts for Bad).

Know how we look back fondly on those childhood novelty songs? There’s one at 70, I have no memory of it at all, prob because I was 27 and not 7. Sneaking in at 74, it’s 70’s rock divas Heart, at long last charting with the triff What About Love. Sadly it took another another 3 years to progress further as Heart became AOR late 80’s UK faves a good decade after US success. The Damned are also back. Is It A Dream? It’s not Classix Nouveaux at any rate…

w/e 24th September 1985

It’s Red Box for a second week on top as Stevie Wonder shoots up to get his last top 3 with new material, after a 17 year-run. Midge Ure is up to 4, beating his 1982 No Regrets cover, Madonna makes it 5 top 10’s in 1985 with Angel, and The Cure get a 5th top 10 up 32 places. Greg Phillinganes and David Cassidy stride into the 20, and the highest new entry is a classic at 37 as A-Ha debut with Take On Me. That spearheads a mass invasion of new tracks, many of them inspired by the new pop TV show Jonathan King’s No Limits – the theme tune itself debuts at 75, as new young presenters win an X-Factor type race to host the show.

In at 38, The Style Council are back with one of their best tracks, The Lodgers, and Dead Or Alive make it 4 hits in a row at 40, My Heart Goes Bang. At 42, Colonel Abrams funky dance Trapped, 44 is a recharting 1982 hit from America, and Kim Carnes is back 5 years since her debut with More Love, in at 50 and she’s crazy in the night. Aren’t we all.

Journey are massive in the 21st Century thanks to Don’t Stop Believin’, but back in 1985 they meant very little in the UK, though they had a few charting hits for me starting with Anyway You Want It in 1980. Steve Perrie steps out here for a solo hit, at 57, Cameo bung in some Single Life funk to follow up the fab She’s Strange, future monster hit in the UK (but not her home USA) Jennifer Rush enters with The Power Of Love, the 3rd song within 12 months to use the title.

The Smiths near the end of their chart journey as The Boy With The Thorn In His Side sneaks in at 64, and Twiggy returns 9 years on from her chart debut, and 20 years since she burst onto the iconic British fashion scene, Jennifer Holliday is back 3 years on from her show-stopping, and unsurpassable, version of And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going from Dream Girls – being sung these days by Amber Riley, former Glee star, Glee of course covering Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’ to huge success, and causing the original to finally chart big in the UK.

Elaine Page returns, 4 years since Memories started her showtune singles chart career, and fresh off her UK chart-topper with Babs Dickson. That leaves Lou Reed making a chart comeback after quite a gap of time, some 12 years since Walk On The Wild Side, and Hall & Oates also back with a cover – in this case a Temptations medley. Phew! Loads of drop outs!
