My April 1987 Charts

7th April 1987

It’s a quartet of chart-toppers for Madonna from the True Blue album, something only Abba had managed previously (Voulez-Vous was the album). That holds off Prince in runners-up again, though he would top with it at last after his untimely death in 2016. Labi Siffre gets his first top 10 since Watch Me in 1972, Rod Stewart finally makes the top 10 12 years late (The Sutherland Brothers original from 1972 was WAY better), and U2 finally get cracking with a huge jump to 11 for With Or Without You. Ken Boothe gets a second-time top 20 with the same song.

Dead Or Alive keep the top 40 run going, Terence Trent D’Arby gets his first, and David Grant gets a big climb into the 40 7 years since he was in Linx with You’re Lying. High new entries from Julian Cope (Eve’s Volcano explodes at 33) Gary Numan combines with Radio Heart for an 8-year run since he started with a Tubeway Army chart-topper, and Bowie enters at 40 with Day-In Day-Out, one of those rare occasions when he was slagged off by the rock media for both the album and the Glass Spider tour. I rather liked the singles off the album, and saw the tour from right at the back of Wembley Stadium – a bit like being at the back of a big outdoor rock festival where people talking at the side of you dominate more than the busy stuff going on in the far distance. It was a bit self-indulgent, and the new album was plugged heavily, sadly, I wanted the great stuff.

Starship pop in with a classic 80’s anthem at 50, though I still prefer the Jefferson and Grace Slick versions from 1980, or the Jefferson Airplane 60’s versions. Kim Wilde does a duet with Junior, which gives them both some chart comeback action nicely, she’s still fab in concert to this day, and The Cure return with Why Can’t I Be You – for me this was the point at which they lost the quirkiness and got all serious and Big In America. Whitesnake return with the Rock, Steve Miller Band get a 13-year chart-span, albeit it ain’t no The Joker. Or Rock’n’Me. Or Abracadabra. Down the tail end returns from 4 current chart acts of the time.

14th April 1987

It’s 3 weeks on top for Madonna and 3 weeks at 2 for Prince as Hot Chocolate take their 1978 number 3 back to 3 in remix format. Lean On Me makes the top 10 for the 3rd act, since topping for Bill Withers in 1972. There are big climbs for John Farnham, Wet Wet Wet, Radio Heart & Gary Numan into the 20, and Starship into the 30. Highest new entry is Living In A Box debuting at 32 with their brilliant eponymous song just ahead of OMD keeping the run of top 40 hits at 7 years, and that’s not a Shame.

Johnny Hates Jazz debut and start a good run of singles with the great Shattered Dreams at 42, with the cool Sly & Robbie having a hit in their own right, the quirky Boops, rather than being backroom producers, in at 43. Elvis is back with another oldie, this time the fun Bossa Nova Baby from one of my fave childhood Elvis films, Fun In Acapulco (the title track was my brothers first-ever single he bought in 1969) and was another Lieber & Stoller song, one of many he recorded.

Five Star & Bon Jovi follow-up, That Petrol Emotion debut, the SOS Band keep the revival going, The Smiths bow out, and Elkie Brooks tries to break the chain. One thing I’ve noticed, in terms of highlighting which tracks I remain eternally loving, the best guide isn’t chart position of songs at the time they were hits – it’s the tracks that crop-up in my weekly playlist faves of the week, by and large oldies that I loved years after the event remain faves forever more, while big faves of a moment in time can suffer from overplay or being “of their time”. My fave current tracks in the 1987 chart these days is Prince, which didn’t top my chart then, and Living In A Box, which did. While U2 peaked at 11, and is very much a classic that took years to grown on me properly.

21st April 1987

It’s a first week on top, and straight in, for 1964 oldie Move Over Darling, Doris Day’s classic theme to the movie of the same name, of her best and areal feel-good fave of mine as a boy, adult, and right now too. Tracey Ullman had a hit with it a few years earlier too, but Doris’ original is the best and charted all over again thanks to an advert. Living In A Box rocket into the ten, along with Wet Wet Wet and Terence Trent D’Arby all getting a top 10 debut.

Crowded House enter with the top-notch classic Don’t Dream It’s Over, not the last time it would chart for the former NZ Split-Enz brothers, who had a few top 10’s in the early 80’s. Irish Rover is an old song, brought back by The Pogues – the presence of The Dubliners put me off, as they were responsible for one of the records of my childhood that used to annoy me (Seven Drunken Nights), but it’s not bad and also into the 30.

Down the bottom end 60’s legend Tom Jones is back with a theatrical big ballad, and three country girls join as a Trio for a cover of the 50’s song To Know Him Is To Love Him. The late Warren Zevon is in with his fab Werewolves Of London, and Latin Quarter keep on being right on again with another newie.

28th April 1987

It’s back up on top for La Isla Bonita giving Madonna 3 weeks in total, as Doris drops to 3 and Herb Alpert gets his 2nd equal-biggest chart position 19 years on from This Guy’s In Love, and thanks to Jam & Lewis. Starship get a second top 10, though they Jefferson’s when Jane did it in 1980, John Farnham gets his first since Little River Band’s 1979 Lonesome Loser, Fine Young Cannibals get Buzzcocks a top 10 song at last with Ever fallen In Love, and Gary Numan gets his 7th top 10 8 years since Are ‘Friends’ Electric topped.

The Damned get a good top 20 climb with the Love classic, OMD leap up even more, not a Shame! Two footballers get the highest new entry, not that footie meant anything much to me, and footie singers generally had dire results, but there you go, in at 33! The Smiths & Tom Jones get big climbs into the 40, and lower down Jaki Graham keeps the string of hits coming, Slade have a final chart entry after a whopping chart run of 16 years, Paul Simon sneaks in with his album title track – never a huge fave of mine off the album – and Cameo keep coming Back & Forth.
