DISCUSSION FORUM

Does anybody have any ARIA charts from before 1989? In particular looking for Top 50 singles and Top 50 albums from the last half of 1988. If anybody can help at all, PLEASE get back to me, I am desperate!
Thanks heaps :-)
Let's Add Pre-1989
Hi

I had ARIA charts from 1988. Not many do...

Contact me if you'd like to have a look-see...

Yours,

I was informed by someone who worked in the industry that ARIA began around the beginning of 1989 (Hence the date here). The only reference I know of for charts prior to this date in the Australian Music Report.
His books are available online:
http://www.austchartbook.com.au/
I think they are a very good reference, even if they are not completely accurate, but you will find that prior to ARIA charts these were the best Australia had.
ARIA began their printed (free) charts in record stores in January 1988. The National Library of Australia does have some records of these. Many have been stolen or not included in the listing.

RAGE - the music program on ABC TV in Australia started running the TOP 50 SINGLES section of the ARIA chart from September 1988. Come 1989, the free charts in stores were increased and that's why complete charts listed thru many website sources begin W/E 8 Jan 1989 as most of 1988 is incomplete...

I'd love to have the entire 50 singles and albums charts from 1988... currently I only have 36 on my personal databases.
The Australian Chart Book and it's subsequent Australian Music Report (which closed in 1998) is not accurate because it's music samples generally came from the Sydney area. Thus, ARIA is the way to go for accuracy in music chart reporting.

However, now with the addition of downloads and some songs (eg "Black Fingernails, Red Wine" and "Flaunt It") lasting years on the list with no physical single available in stores is a non-sense... But I 'spose, gone are the days of the CD and Cassingle...

Hey Everyone

Aria started compiling it's chart's in-house the week ending June 26th 1988. Before this was the Kent Chart which was from 1983 which ceased in 1999.

I don't believe songs like Eskimo Joe - Black Fingernails, Red Wine & TV Rock & Seany B - Flaunt It lasting years in the Aria top 50 is non-sense. By combining physical singles with digital downloads that gives you the exact order of sales for any given week. The reason for their longetivity is due to low sales. Or little competition on the charts.

Also i know the official highest selling song from each year beginning in 1955 - Frank Sinatra - Learning The Blues till 2006 - Sandi Thom - I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair)
Actually Rage started showing the top 50 well before September 1988... I remember the first time I saw it Madonna's "Causing A Commotion" was in it and that was late '87/early '88. I started writing it down religiously as of the week ending 8th May 1988, and I only remember that because I remember that Suedehead by Morrissey was No. 50!
ARIA used the Kent Music Report charts from mid 1983 and even when they started compiling their own chart in 1988 the record companies who financed the chart strangely still favoured the Kent chart over their own.
As for its samples mainly coming from the Sydney area I think you may be confusing this chart with "The Book" Top 40 Research.
Rage starting screening on April 17th 1987. Aria started collecting data in 1986 which was lost.

Nate
Hey my friends and I putting together a CD for a friends 21st birthday with 21 singles that were no. 1 on the arias on her birthday each year of her life. We need the pre 1989 singles still. She was born 19 May 1986 can anyone help?
1988 - Billy Ocean - Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car
1987 - Paul Lekakis - Boom Boom (Let's Go Back To My Room)
1986 - Cliff Richard & The Young Ones - Living Doll
wow awesome topic! Yeah it would be good to find out the other info prior to Jan 1989! So many great songs.
These charts are fantastic!! I hope that there will be pre-1989 weekly charts on the net soon! The sooner, the better!
I remember seeing on an old ARIA Report that Midnight Oil's Species Deceases was the first #1 debut recorded on the ARIA chart in 1985, so there is definitely records about somewhere.
I've got a majority of the ARIA Top 50 handouts from 1984-1992 (some years I have less than others including 1986 when the went to poster sized charts rather than hand out sized). I can probably help out. I've been trying to source the 51-100 chart positions for the ARIA chart from June 88 (when they discontinued the Kent Chart data) and Dec 89 (just prior to them publishing the Top 100 each week in the ARIA report). This would fill the gap of having the TOP 100 from the 70's to today using Kent Charts until mid-88 and ARIA post mid-88. Anyone got access to ARIA chart database per chance????
I've tried on many occasions to find out from ARIA regarding their archive and it's been years since they've stated on their site "we will make our archive public soon", if you have the old Top 50 charts pre 8-1-89, i'd love to have a look at them!!!! ta
I stumbled across a L.P with a COUTDOWN/ARIA chart dated week ending 11th September 1983!
If this is of any help to anyone
Hi BeansterBarnes,

I'll pay you for that chart.. Contact me!!

TONy (041 207 3288)
I have a computer database of every ARIA singles chart from January 1993 onwards plus an incomplete number of other chartss dating back to pre-ARIA times (1986-1988). In addition, complete album charts dating back to 2000.
www.onmc.iinet.net.au, which has a list of all the Australian number one singles, has no record of U2 & Green Day- The Saints Are Coming ever being at number one. I'm certain that peaked at the top of the music charts in November.
Ive got the ARIA charts from sept 1988 that i got from a record store. i can upload them if you want the ones i have pre 89.
I have almost all the ARIA charts I picked up from record shops from late 1987 until about 1990 sitting in a box. I could scan them, although early on I highlighted the songs I liked and it could be a bit embarrassing. "Star trekkin'" anyone? Anyway, there's heaps so if anyone has any specific questions I can probably have a trawl through.
*Shane

If you could share that would be so great and don't worry about your favourites I admit i've had a few cringe choices myself throughout the years hehe!

Does anyone know what source ARIA uses as reference in it's Chartifacts pre-85ish?
People - the self-compiled ARIA Charts were not running in 1985 nor 1987! Perhaps you've got them mixed around with the Kent Music Report, which later changed its name to the Australian Music Report in 1987? (1974-1999)?

The official ARIA Charts began being compiled in 1988, but they had started from 1983 using the Kent Music Report's information.

But I guess what you were saying sortof makes sense now... I don't know where they got their information of the Charifacts from pre-1985 from... I didn't even know Chartifacts was running then... but does I'm guessing, as they do nowadays, got their info from the Kent Report, found some info on singles and albums that had debuted that week, and published it? Surely there's not much more to it? I'm not entirely sure because I have not looked at them from this period. And, John, I've seen that onmc.iinet.net.au is not always 100% correct.. perhaps that's why it doesn't list U2 and Green Day's cover of "The Saints are Coming" going to #1? I'm 110% sure it did, because I even remember reading the charts that week... anyway, that's all from me.
Hello,

I have a book titled "The Book" which is written by "Jimmy Barnes". He shows the Aussie charts going back to 1956.I'm just wondering where he got this data from.
So there was no official SALES chart before 1988? There must be, I don't know what anyone elses view on it is but radio airplay charts are very much obselete to me.
Beginnings of the ARIA Chart
In the early 1980s the major record companies in Australia, EMI, Festival, CBS (now known as Sony), RCA (now known as BMG), WEA (now known as Warner Music) and Polygram (now known as Universal), joined together, along with representation of some of the smaller record companies, to form an industry association under the name of ARIA (Australian Record Industry Association). ARIA was established as an industry body to manage music industry issues such as copyright and piracy. A secondary goal of ARIA's was to have an industry published chart.
Rather than re-invent the wheel and start from scratch ARIA recognised that the Kent Music Report was already conducting chart research and publishing the results. ARIA and the Kent Music Report entered into a business agreement where-by ARIA provided funding to the Kent Music Report to further establish its research base, making for an even more accurate chart. In return ARIA were allowed to publish the Kent Music Report charts, under license, under their own banner. This was the beginning of the ARIA chart that was published and distributed amongst record stores and is known to most music fans in this country to this day.

The licensing arrangement between Kent Music Report and ARIA lasted from 1983 until 1988 when ARIA, wanting to gain a higher level of control of the chart research and publication, ended its agreement with Kent Music Report, formed their own research and chart publishing group and started publishing their own give-away chart.

Top
Two National Charts
Although the licensing agreement between ARIA and the Kent Music Report had ended, the Kent Music Report continued to conduct it's own research. In 1987 the Kent Music Report had actually changed its moniker to Australian Music Report (AMR) for the purposes of establishing a broader and more recognisable name. With ARIA promoting itself, some-what questionably, as 'the official' chart there arose the situation where two national charts were being published each week in competition to each other.
Both charts had similar research bases but the levels of agreement between the charts could differ. In most cases the top 10 between each chart would be very similar but often the data that made up the rest of the chart could differ quiet significantly. It is ironic to note that the record companies themselves, those whose money was being channeled to fund ARIA and it's own chart research, would continue to subscribe and use the Australian Music Report.

For a breakdown of who used the AMR versus ARIA click here:
I almost cry myself to sleep at night knowing that I had EVERY edition of the ARIA (Kent) charts from mid 1984 til when they stopped the original print run - then threw them out in a mad purge sometime in the 1990's.

I don't know how I face waking up each day.

But I've recently discovered The Kent Report online, where you can buy some pretty good chart collation books. When I get my first one I'll post a review.
I have a couple of questions:

On the online chart here for 08-01-1989 every song is a "new entry" but I'd like to know which songs on the printed chart were new entries that week and at what number?

Is there a chart for 01-01-1989? I don't think one would have been released that week, but I don't mind being wrong (heh-heh)

>>> Kat was here <<<
Hey Kat,

The new entries were:
2 NEW 1 2 ESPECIALLY FOR YOU - Kylie Minogue & Jason Donovan (Mushroom/Festival) K717
21 NEW 1 21 IMAGINE/JEALOUS GUY/HAPPY XMAS (WAR IS OVER) - John Lennon (Parlophone/EMI) A2182
28 NEW 1 28 EVERY ROSE HAS ITS THORN - Poison (Liberation/CBS) LS2036
38 NEW 1 38 SMOOTH CRIMINAL - Michael Jackson (Epic/CBS) 653026.7
42 NEW 1 42 I'M GONNA BE (500 MILES) - The Proclaimers (Chrysalis/Festival) K644
43 NEW 1 43 TWO HEARTS - Phil Collins (WEA/Warner) 7-257750
48 NEW 1 48 A CUPPLA DAYS - Con The Fruiterer (CBS) 653148.7

The previous chart to this was dated 25-12-1988.
Thanks Liam

Wow, "Two Hearts" first charted in 1989? I could have sworn it was 1988, but I was only 10 years old back then and getting my chart info by watching "Rage" in the mornings. That's memories for ya!

>>> Kat was here <<<
Well it would probably have been in the Top 100 in 1988. According to AMROC, the single was released on the 12th December 1988 so would have had its first opportunity to chart w/e 25th December, the chart issued immediately before 8th January.
Hi, does anyone know where House of Fun by Madness charted? I've been told it was at #5, but I don't have any source.

Can anyone who knows please let me know, and state their source if possible.
Hey Sam,

It was indeed #5, according to the Kent Report.

It was also re-released in 1992, when it peaked at #73 (source: ARIA).

Cheers,
Liam
Hi Liam, i was wondering what the Kent report says about Belinda Carlisle's album Heaven on Earth.
Hi Kate,

According to the Kent Report, Heaven On Earth debuted at No. 36 on 29th February 1988, peaking at No. 13 on the 21st March. It spent 16 weeks in the Top 100 in total.

The week following its departure from the chart, ARIA began their own charts but Top 100 info for their 1988/89 charts is hard to come by, so it's impossible to tell if the album remained or re-entered after the 19th June 1988.

Cheers
Liam have you got access to the other Top 100 singles charts from before #449?
David Kent is an extremely nice guy who still to this day compiles national charts.

As for ARIA, they have no record of a Top 100 prior to late 1989, when the first ARIA report was produced for purchase. Unfortunately, they also have no plans to produce a chart book (along the lines of David Kent's chart books), even though the idea has been mooted many times over the years.

Who else here really, really misses Rage showing the Top 50 each week??
Yes I have :-)
Hi Plang,

Just wondering if you could please help me with getting some Aria charts from the 1984-1988 period. I could send you blank discs to burn the scans on if possible. Thanks
Hey Every 1!
Hi Liam...
I agree with Scott! I miss Rage showing the Australian Top 50 countdown each week.
Also does Any 1 know what songs were at positions #43, #45, #47, #48, #49. On the Digital Track Chart for the 8th January 2007? Some Help Plz...
I need them for my own charts.

Cheers
Hi Nate, here is the digital track chart you requested
#43 - "You Know My Name" (from Casino Royale) - Chris Cornell
#45 - "Over My Heard (Cable Car)" (album version) - The Fray
#47 - "Hurt" - Christina Aguilera
#48 - "Funky Tonight" - John Butler Trio
#49 - "Temperature" (album version) - Sean Paul

Thanks Ben, But the information you actually posted is week 2 of 2007. the 15th of january. which means they arn't the positions i am after.
Hi... Does anyone have or know someone who has Countdown Charts for the years 1984, 1985 and 1986 - maybe the first half on 1987 too. I have everything from 1988 onwards and some of 1983 (thanks to the National Library) but I can't find the rest anywhere. No one has ever hung on to them... Not even the ABC.
Get in touch and let's talk the ARIA Countdown Chart Top 50 singles and albums...
TONY
Hi everyone!

Cheers
Summer

Does anyone have the Rage year ends on tape?

I had a copy of all the year ends but local flooding destroyed my bottom level of my house where I had my tapes and unfortunetly I had to throw them out. =0(

I haven't been able to find a copy of them since, I even contacted ARIA but due to copyright they can't be of any help.

So if anyone can help please let me know.
Cheers Joe.

If anyone wants them get in contact with me & we'll work something out.

Thanks so much, very appreciated

btw the Pandora link you mention has a problem, it links to Issue 810 not 811
Hi Don,

That was strange but I'm pretty sure this link does link to the Report for 12th September 2005.
Enjoy.

Just realised that on the latest Top 50 Albums chart (28th of Jan 2008) 3 of Bon Jovi's old albums including Slippery When Wet (1986) and New Jersy (1988) have re-entered the charts due to their Aus Tour.

But next to these albums, it has their Gold/Platnium status.

If these albums were pre 1988, where did they get the information from?
Hey guys,

I was just wondering if anyone knew what date INXS' "Never Tear Us Apart" hit #1, (and for how long it was there - I assume it topped the charts anyway). Just that I was born in '87 & I'm sure it was out that year (ie, wondering if it was #1 on my birthday lol).

As has already been posted - an awesome topic!
Cheers

Mat;
It didn't quite peak at No.1, but made it No.11 for two weeks at the end of September 1988 (not 87) (according to AMR). So if you wanna know what was No.1 on your birthday, just reply with your date of birth in either this thread-topic or the one about Birthday Songs.

Regards, Bulion.
Anthony,

The record company (in this case, Universal) applies for gold and platinum accreditations with ARIA based on their own sales data (ie. shipped TO stores, not scanned from stores). However, this information is not always accurate, as it may not have been updated for years, OR perhaps the albums in question have been available through different record companies and the newer company may not have access to the previous distributor's sales info (a good example of this is "Play" by Moby, which came out through Festival originally, then EMI when the Mute label was bought by them). In the case of Bon Jovi, however, Universal should have complete sales histories for those albums...

Basically, the moral of it all is not to take too much notice of the accreditations, they really are only a rough guide.
Oh k. Thanks for the reply Chartboi!
A further four Bon Jovi albums have re-entered the charts in the lower half of the Top 100. Cross Roads-The Best of (57), These Days (58), Bon Jovi (59) and 7800 Fahrenheit (66).
So they now have EIGHT albums on the chart.

Regards, Bulion.
Howdy guys
I need to know what was Bon Jovi's "Bad Medicine" peak position?
As the charts on this forum start in the first week of '89
I believe the single first charted in mid October '88.
Craig
BB, BJ's "Bad Meds" peaked at No.5 on the AMR Charts in it's second week on the charts, having debuted at N.10 on the 10-Oct-1988.
On the ARIA Chart, Bad Medicine peaked at #4.
Great website!! I have several old Aria/Countdown Top 50 charts from 1984 to 1988 (all of 1988) which I still have after all these years. Am interested to trade to get missing weeks from 1983 to 1987.
Hi There, i have just stumbled upon this forum and think it is awesome. I religiously taped rage and wrote down the top 60(up to 93) and the top 50 from the beginning of 1991 unitl about 2002. I have over 200 aria charts from music stores from 1991 until 1998 as well. I was wondering if there was any way in finding out what the top selling singles in Australia are in the 1990's? Is there a definitive accurate list of the top 100? Or can we just assume by their platnum rankings? Obviously candle in the wind/something about the way you look tonight would be number 1(14 times platinum?) I will always love you(4x platinum), doctor jones and barbie girl (3x platinum) just to name a few. Thanks!
Nathan the official aria site has the year end top 50 from 1988 - present.
Hi there Nate, thanks for that. I meant overall as in the ten years of the 90's combined. I wasn't clear sorry!
That would be interesting to find out. I think I remember hearing Whitney Houston was number one
Maybe Bulion has the answers.

BTW Drop me a e-mail reguarding your RAGE tapes Nathan.

Do you know what the song "Dancing With Myself" is about? If not, I'll let you know.

Regards, Bulion.
According to wikipedia, the song is reportedly about masturbation but is actually about pogo dancing.
I always heard it was about masturbation, just like "Turning Japanese" by The Vapors is also on that subject.
hi.
i am pretty disappointed that this site doesn't have any chart runs for one of my favourite bands 'Faith No More'! I do remember them being very popular with their albums in Oz, so does anyone have any of thier albums chart runs and certifications? thanx.
