My November 1986 Charts

4th November 1986

It’s a 3rd week on top for Pet Shop Boys, with Berlin’s classic movie theme breathing down their neck at 2, and Lloyd-Webber’s gorgeous Phantom song at 3. Anita Baker finally makes the top 10 with Sweet Love, and Shaky gets a rare top 10. His 4th, but his hit-rate is quite low. Madness chug into the 20, Boo! That’s “Boo!” as in ghostly fright, not an exclamation of displeasure. Kim Wilde also goes top 20 with her Supremes cover, climbing slowly, while Duran notoriously climb faster. Highest new entry is Debbie Harry’s best post-Blondie solo single, French Kissing In The USA, at 22, for 8 years of non-stop success in my charts, and China Crisis are back with the nice Arizona Sky at 26. That under-performed Uk chart-wise sadly.

Mel & Kim get a big climb into the 30, and Erasure, Swing Out Sister and Bon Jovi into the 40 ditto, as the fab emotive, hugging Peter Gabriel & Kate Bush are new at 39. Don’t Give Up is timeless advice. Future cheesy anthem Europe enters at 61. I was heading a Highways team, surveying Dorset roads back in this day, and a few weeks later I had a heated discussion with my young post-grad music student assistant which annoyed me so much it still burns cos I was so sure I was right in my opinion and he was wrong in his assessment that the chart were rubbish and the music disposable destined to be forgotten. “I bet you” I said, “that Berlin and Europe, at the very least, are remembered decades from now”. They had the ring of lasting popularity to me. Nice to be right.

The Cars main man is solo at 62, Madonna gifts a song for the first and last time, to male model Nick Kamen, he of the Levi 501 laundrette strip off advert. In at 70, just ahead of Janet Jackson and a more pedestrian follow-up to a fab single, in Control, another movie song from Kenny Loggins, and a lovely song from Bucks Fizz keeping each other warm, not to mention the cockles of my heart.

11th November 1986

It’s a first week on top for Berlin’s movie classic, with Anita Baker looking Sweet at 2. Debbie Harry leaps into the top 5, the first time she has troubled that end of the chart for almost 6 years with Rapture, as Kissing The Pink get a second top 10 3 years on from The Last Film. Bon Jovi’s future classic anthem shoots up to 12 and Swing Out Sister Breakout into the 20. OMD get the highest new entry with the laid back We Love You, as future chart biggie Europe is up 29 places to 32, but is leapfrogged by Nick “Madonna” Kamen at 31. The Smiths, Tina Turner and Cutting Crew all return to the 40.

Eurythmics also go low-key with a sort-of Xmas ballad that everyone has forgotten these days, new at 49, just ahead of Spandau’s comeback after other projects, the Northern Ireland-referencing Through The Barricades. The under-rated Lone Justice enter at 56 with Shelter, though singer Maria McKee would eventually top the UK chart, Greg Abbott’s Shake You Down gets a decent new entry, Human League return with another Jam & Lewis track, this one uptempo, and under-performing considering the track record of all parties concerned in my charts. That also goes for Kate Bush’s Experimental single, and Frankie’s Wasteland, while Boston get a brief one-week return to my charts after, ooh, 9 years away. Ultravox scrape in as their best chart days are well and truly behind them at this point.

18th November 1986

It’s 2 weeks on top for Berlin as Shaky gets a career-high of 3 in my charts – with one of his most obscure hits! Bon Jovi make it 2 consecutive top 5’s with their signature tune, and Mel & Kim get a first top 10 and get the ball rolling proper on the SAW years of pop dominance. Kim Wilde makes it 5 years of top 10’s and Madness 7 years. Nick Kamen climbs into the 20, and Bucks Fizz shoot up into the 40 – keeping their record of top 40’s 100% in 5 years.

Highest new entry is Womack & Womack keeping up the run of post-Love Wars tracks to chart, at 42 with Soul Love/Soul Man, as Cyndi Lauper leapfrogs herself as True Colors drops like a brick and the good Change Of Heart enters at 51. Cameo are back with Candy, sweet! Phil Fearon is back with another cover, this time the 1968 Showstoppers song Ain’t Nothin’ But a Houseparty, and some substantial goodies enter at the lower end, from Robbie Nevil’s C’Est La Vie, Oran ‘Juice’ Jones terrific The Rain, The Communards best-single to-date So Cold The Night, and also a bunch of lesser entries from Glass Tiger (over-rated), Simple Minds, a Springsteen cover of Edwin Starr’s classic War, Grace Jones, and a superstar duet from Elton and Cliff, who collectively had made the UK charts every year since 1958, and for quite some time after 1986, Elton having non-stop runs from 1971 through 1999, while Cliff had 1958 through 1974. In my charts Elton had a non-stop run from 1971 through to 2002 with new material, or 2004 including oldies.

25th November 1986

It’s a sudden leap to the top spot for Erasure, Sometimes has pottered around climbing slowly for a few weeks, before stopping Debbie Harry getting a solo topper – though Blondie would be back for some more in the 21st century anyway. Vince Clark had already topped with Yazoo’s Only You 4 years earlier, and it wouldn’t be his last chart-topper either. Cyndi Lauper rockets into the top 20 with Change Of Heart, easily outdoing True Colors which was pleasantly dull in comparison, and giving her a 4th top 20.

Highest newie is The Damned, 7 years of chart entries and counting, followed by a 3rd for Fuzzbox, both inside the 40, just behind a leaping Jam & Lewis Human League, and ahead of a cool Oran ‘Juice’ Jones, both climbing fast. Genesis also return with one of their very best singles, Land Of Confusion and it’s Spitting Image video, and the smooth Shake You Down gives Gregory Abbott a debut. Actor and comedian Billy Crystal, long a fave from the sitcom Soap, and en route to movie stardom, slips out a whimsical US hit single, You Look Marvellous, done in the style of latin Hollywood movie star Fernando Llamas, and tickles my fancy as I also liked Fernando. The Housemartins cover the Isleys, and instantly outdo them with their accapella version.

Talking of Yazoo, Alison Moyet is also back with a goodie, Is This Love, and Howard Jones & Five Star add to their list, while new in at 75, briefly, it’s Wendy Richard reprising her 1962 smash Come Outside, which I adored as a 4 or 5-year-old and thereafter, though she swaps lead singer from Mike Sarne to Mike Berry who had been hitless for 6 years, but gets 11 years of chart entries since his 1975 cover of Don’t Be Cruel, some 10 years since his 60’s popstar career stalled.
