UK Top 40 Singles Chart May 11 2017

It is the current UK top 40. Ed Sheeran looking to dominate the top 3 again and a 12th week on top maybe? So after the Drake and Ed Sheeran domination of the supposed singles chart (where now any old album track can enter apparently) we see that Ed still has the best of his “divide” inside the singles chart, and Drake is left with some “Passionfruit”. It’s a bit more evenly placed this week.

We have the entire top 20 singles and, some of those between forty and twenty and a delve into the album chart. New entry there from Gorillaz. At the top of the singles the Beiber boy is back fighting Mr Sheeran and Lara for that top spot. Who is gonna win. Join me to find out. Enjoy!

I am taking you back 33 years, yes that’s how old you are, to 1984. Style Council, Howard Jones, The Smiths. Some lost in the wilderness bands like Break Machine or Bronski Beat yes the eighties were cheesier than a double whopper with extra cheese, and that’s a lot of cheese, not really good for you know, you really gotta cut that shit out and eat some more healthy shit.

Anyway, the music Wham! Check, Duran Duran, Check, Status Quo Check, Gene Vincent Check, … wait a minute… Gene Vincent? Ohhhh he’s in the album chart section, check, a bit of Pointer Sisters, Sister Sledge, Madness, OMD, Phil Collins and Bob Marley. Download it live it.. breathe it… beeee it.

Through The Music - UB40

The story of UB40 has been a prominent one from day one. The politics, the music, the break-ups, the makeups, the splits, the replacements (that didn’t work out). But none of that is relevant apart from what is disclosed in their own writing. Through The Music.

They first caught our attention with hits like “My Way Of Thinking”, “Food For Thought”, “The Earth Dies Screaming” through to the biggest period with number ones in the eighties and nineties, cover versions that they seem to do so well. Here are thirty handpicked gems from the greatest Reggae Fusion band there is, and a few extras in there too. Enjoy! 

The Tunes That Never Get Old. Unlike the rest of us. These are the classics that stand the test of time, even some as recent as 2016. There’s a mix of pop. Rock, dance, R&B and a smidgen of reggae for the connoisseur. A bit of everything to keep anyone who loves music happy.

Get yourself involved as we spawn seven decades of music to bring you the very best dating back to “Bobby Vee” right up to date with Justin Timberlake, Iggy Azalea, Walk The Moon, John Legend and more. Back to the seventies with Lou Reed, David Bowie, the eighties with Heart and “Alone”, Cyndi Lauper and the classic Rocker’s Revenge. There’s nineties favourites from Michael Jackson, Ultra Naté, Crash Test Dummies and more. Enjoy!

Way back in time we go to February 1982. When peeps like Barry Manilow, Sheena Easton And Olivia Newton John was taking up chart positions. Now those days are gone. I suppose we should be thankful for that at least. But Olivia’s “Physical” was a cracker and features in this chart. Expect some Hall & Oates, Kenny Rogers, Stevie Wonder, Quarterflash, Joan Jett + Diana Ross.

I will take a look at the top Pop Albums of the time, playing the entire top 20 singles, along with a few from the bottom of the chart. The fight for number one was on J Giels Band held off all competition but can they do it in this particular week or are Hall + Oates, Quarterflash or Journey going to end their run. Lots of great eighties classics in here. “Leader Of The Band”, “Chariots Of Fire”, “Abacab”, “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” and “Centerfold”. Lots more to add to the bargain. Get it now!

Ah, yes back to the days when they killed off ole Den Watts in Eastenders [well, the first time anyway]. And everything else happening around the UK is too depressing to even contemplate telling you. SO onto the happier climate of the music. March the 4th 1989 Michael Jackson was at battle with Simple Minds of all creatures for the top spot.

Paula Abdul has her first UK top 40 hit, as do Texas and Sam Brown among some others. There’s new entries from The Reynolds girls attacking the oldies of the music scene [bad move girls]. We hear some classic Deacon Blue, Posion, Depeche Mode, Donna Summer, Holly Johnson and Def Leppard. There’s a foray into the top ten albums which is all good. A good wee trip back to 1989 then!
