I think it might be my first top 75 this week! Hairycub and nnnumb like this. At number 40 a new entry: Prince - Sexy dancer.
As usual Prince is up to no good getting funky on the dance floor this time. Last edited: Mar 23, HairycubMar 23, At number 39 a new entry: OMD - Electricity. This is the third time the debut single by OMD has been released and it comes hot off the back of their recent minor hit "Red frame, white light" "Electricity" was first released on the indie Factory label last May and then it was re-released in Sep after they had signed to Virgin records offshoot Dindisc and were busy supporting Gary Numan in concert.
This time it's certainly taken off in The Cubster region! A new entry at number The Selecter - Missing words Single number three from this two-tone band and the third hit following "On my Dream Awile - The Ink Spots - Sincerely Yours and "Three minute hero" into the Cubster Retrochart.
The SKA revival remains as popular as ever at the moment:. This week's champs are The Detroit Spinners and "Working my Tom De Neef - From Antwerp With Love back to you" - they took five weeks to get there: Meanwhile, stuck at number 3 are Liquid Gold and "Dance yourself dizzy", but climbing up fast behind them are Genesis and The Clash who's "Train in vain" is climbing up the USA chart but they refused to release it as a single here in the UK, apparently!
The Pretenders have this week's highest new entry at number 21 with "Talk of the town" but the big controversy at the moment is at number 40 - Prince's "Sexy dancer" which is lyrically causing a stir in the Cubster region.
Eric Genericnnnumb and phoenix like this. Ooh, busiest week of the year so far, with no less than six new entries. I even had to retire the Dead Kennedys single a couple of weeks earlier than planned - but then again, it was kind of on borrowed time to begin with, as I had used the late UK license as an 'excuse' to fit it in my six-month rule anyway Luckily both Madness and The Undertones only had to upstage their own singles from six months earlier, but Prince thanks Hairycub for the reminder!
