My July 1987 Charts

7th July 1987

2 weeks on top for It’s A Sin, still epic 32 years later, Herb Alpert gets 2 top 3’s in a row, Madonna shoots up into the 10 with Who’s That Girl, and Cliff gets another top 10 to add to his 19-year-long-run (or, more accurately, 25 years as Bachelor Boy would have topped my hypothetical charts had I been doing them as a 4/5 year-old). Highest new entry is Black, in at 13 with Sweetest Smile, hot on the heels of Wonderful Life.

Bananarama get a big top 40 climb with one of their very best singles, a-ha keep up the run of top 40 hits with the Bond theme climbing 33 places, and Simple Minds keep the live version trend going with a big climb for Promised You A Miracle, 5 years on from the original. Elton is also doing the same, Your Song entering at 46 16 years after the original, behind David Grant in at 38 with Change, a good single that flopped a bit at the time as his 7-year run of success ran out of steam.

Mel & Kim enter with FLM, their penultimate hit as their career was about to abruptly end due to the impending tragic illness and death of young Mel, very sad. Red Box keep the native sounds coming on Chenko, and Boy George is back with a bit of oomph in his great single Sold. Art Of Noise do another 50’s TV/movie theme, this time for the new Dragnet movie. I was old enough to remember the TV show which was still running in the late 60’s, starring future Colonel Potter Harry Morgan of M*A*S*H fame.

In at 72, Wax are back, having flopped with the fab Right Between The Eyes, they hit with Bridge To Your Heart, giving Andrew Gold a decade of hits, and Graham Gouldman 15 years since 10CC started – or 21 years as a songwriter of Hollies hits and Herman’s Hermits chart success which would have charted for me as a boy. 10CC/Graham did this track in tribute to Andrew last year when I saw them and they were fab. Finally Kenny G enters with his Songbird, notorious for introducing a new style of coffee-table instrumental jazz music used in elevators and holding-patterns on phones and the like. So “nice” it became a marmite thing….

PLAYIST OLDIES

1 TOMORROW NEVER KNOWS The Beatles
2 I WANT TO STAY HERE Steve & Eydie
3 PANINARO Pet Shop Boys

14th July 1987

It’s a first week on top for Jackie Wilson’s 2nd oldies chart-topper of 1987, originally hitting my top 10 in 1969, and top 30 in 1975, now going Higher And Higher, knocking Pet Shop Boys classic It’s A Sin off the top after only 2 weeks. Not to worry they’d do their own bit of oldies re-issue charting with It’s A Sin down the line. In at 3, talking of oldies, The Beatles Summer Of LOve ’67 classic is also back on it’s 20th anniversary re-issue, at 3, having topped my charts in 1976 already. Heart get a big leap up to 5 with Alone, their 2nd top 5, Black get a second top ten, and Bananarama grab a 6th top ten 5 years into their career – and with a to-date further 32 years and counting to come – with the great I Heard A Rumour, proving Stock Aitken & Waterman could make great singles when they tried.

In at 19, a debut for Star-Trek Priestess T’Pau – or Carol Decker & friend – and the fab Heart & Soul, their best record by far, still love it, and the start of a trickling of tracks into my charts (see Los Lobos) which will accompany me & my parents on US car radio stations in a couple of months on our trip round California/Nevada/Arizona. In at 20 another oldie, but this time a remake – Mungo Jerry had topped my charts in 1970 while I lived in Singapore, and again in 1975 when In The Summertime was reissued, reminding me of happy boyhood tropical eternal sunny summer days – before inferior cover versions, over-use in TV adverts and other constant media profiles sucked all the joy out of it for me.

Boy George sells a big jump into the 40, Freddie MacGregor’s decent reggae cover of 70’s Philly track does the same, and the classically-trained Billy Joel enters at 46 with A Matter Of Trust. Billy was a wanna-be Boxer with a sensitive side who never seemed to get the recognition for his talent, but then he didn’t always release commercial singles, like this one. Los Lobos debut at 58 with the theme to the Ritchie Valens biopic, his hit song from his very short career – dying in the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly & The Big Bopper. Jennifer Warnes covers Leonard Cohen, giving her 11 years of hits in my charts, and Cohen his first charting song – Jennifer’s voice is easier on the ear than ol’ Len’s, I have to say, and she was a fan and friend of his.

Iggy Pop is back, Pseudo Echo cover 1980 Lipps Inc (it seemed far too soon to me!), and the great Was (Not Was) – pronounced Waz (not Woz), the stage name of Don & David Was – are back after their 1984 debut with the terrific (Return To The Valley Of) Out Come The Freaks, with the equally terrific romping Spy In The House Of Love, which had to wait a year to chart properly in the UK. Peter Gabriel also goes political on Red Rain, as per normal then.

3 PAPA DON’T PREACH Madonna

21st July 1987

It’s a first week on top for the 20th anniversary Beatles reissue, as the Summer Of Love classic tops my chart for the first time since 1976’s Beatles reissues – or rather, new sleeves and formats – the catalogue numbers remained the same as they were never deleted. Madonna is denied a 4th consecutive chart-topper, at 2, and Boy George gets his second solo top 10, Billy Idol his 5th solo top 10, and George Michael guesting on a top 10 for the second time – David Cassidy’s The Last Time being the first.

a-ha and Fleetwood Mac keep those top 20’s going, there are big climbs for Red Box, a 3rd top 40, Jennifer Warnes, a second solo a decade on from Right Time Of The Night, and Smokey Robinson is back with his classic Motown ballad, Tracks Of My Tears, having first charted for me in 1969 – when it was already a few years old! The Gap Band revamp their 1980 hit at 51 – Oops! – and SAW debut as artists in their own right with the Northern Soul-flavoured dance-stomper Roadblock, and rather good it was too, at 53. At 59 Def Leppard return 4 years on from Photograph, with the even better Animal, a fab rocking record, even with the drummer Rick Allen having lost an arm in an accident. Technology helped him continue, with the band’s help.

Sly & Robbie follow up Boops with Fire, and The B52’s are back assisted by the Rock Lobster reissued hit, Wig giving them 8 years of entries. Skulking quietly in at 73, New Order are back with a bang, and a career highlight, as True Faith debuts – it wouldn’t top my chart till the 90’s remix, but it’s still a major classic. Wet Wet Wet follow-up a brilliant debut with Sweet Little Mystery. Which is not in the same class at all. Start as you mean to go on…

28th July 1987

It’s a first week on top for Madonna’s Who’s That Girl, giving her 5 chart-toppers in a row, and in total, as T’Pau race into the top 3 with Heart And Soul, joined by a remix of The Temptations classic Papa Was A Rolling Stone remixed to peak higher than the original did in 1973, at 8. Closely behind at 9, it’s a new entry for the original ska song My Boy Lollipop by Millie, a fave of kiddie John in his early schooldays, charting for the first time, and after the lesser Bad Manners version. David Grant gets a first top 10 in 4 years, while huge leaps for Wax and Def Leppard in to the 20, and New Order into the 40 make up the big climbers.

In at 20, it’s the first track off the forthcoming Bad album, the charming I Just Can’t Stop Loving You, with Siedah Garrett, returning the favour for donating Man In The Mirror to Michael Jackson. It’s Siedah’s second chart hit, Michael’s umpteenth, 17 years on. Bill Withers brings his Lovely Day back into the chart 9 years on, and a year ahead of the remix hit version, The Beastie’s get a 3rd, and Danny Wilson a first, chart entry. She’s On It, and the sweet Mary’s Prayer – which had to wait till 1988 to chart big. Aussie band Icehouse also had to wait a while for Crazy to catch on, but straight in here, 4 years on from the fab Hey Little Girl.
