Forum - ARIA Charts: Special Occasion Charts - CHART POSITIONS PRE 1989, part 2

All right, let's start this thread off on a 2-Tone question. What are the chart stats for The Beat (and spin-off bands General Public and Fine Young Cannibals) and The Specials/The Special AKA?

Hi. I have a bit of a tricky question, but I'm hoping someone may be able to help... I'm interested in the ARIA Australian-only charts, as they serve as a kind of "bubbling under" for some songs by Aussie artists that charted below the top 100.

Does anyone know what date ARIA started publishing these, & if the information is available anywhere? Short of getting access to a full set of these charts (a dream I know), there are a couple of songs I'd love to see the entry dates/positions for in particlar, these being :

Ghetto Rose - "Time Flies" and "Left With The Sky" from 1995
Divinyls - Make Out Alright (from 1991)

Any help appreciated, thanks!

thanks sorry about the rudeness i just got carried away....
Can anyone please tell me the peak position of "Viva Hate" by Morrissey in Australia? ARIA said in their Chartifacts last week it went top 30 in 1988, but does not specify what. I know all of his studio album peak positions, but did any of his other albums (like a greatest hits) chart as well? And any of his singles? Although this is not all pre-1989. ;S

Thanks very much if you could tell me, as I'm inserting this information into Wikipedia, as there's no information on Morrissey's album peak positions in Australia on there.
Thanks for starting a new thread! I was wondering if "Hooked On Classics" or "Hooked On Swing" charted here? They came before the Jive Bunny medleys. Also, did the Weather Girls, Cheri, Cherelle, Donna Allen, Jean Carn or Marlena Shaw chart in Australia?

Thanks bulion
Oh and Rupert Holmes as well

sorry just realised we've done stevie wonder could i change that request to ray charles? much appreciated
hey thanks again for before any chance for robert palmer and deneice williams?
By the way, I'll just add my shock and amazement with regards to the last post on the previous thread -- "Khe Sanh" only peaked at 41??? Wow.
Hi, new to the site.

The opposing side to classics like Khe Sanh, is the number of songs that have charted highly but know one even remember now. These have offen charted much higher than the songs we remember.

Another strange one is songs from artists that chart highly, but are not the songs that we all know. One example from the Seventies was Procol Harum. Thier first hit, "Conquistador", got to No. 3 (go-set charts) while "Whiter Shade of Pale" only got to No. 17.

Seventies were my era and I certaily don't remember Conquistador!
yeah brian, totally agree. I noticed that on many songs recently and was surprised!

wow that is so interesting i thought the beatles had much higher peak positions then some of those shown (of course it was obvious that they were huge and that they all had no. 1's. interesting case for ray charles too. "shake your tailfeather" always get radio airplay yet it barley made the top 50. i think brian's got a point about the charts. any thanks again
wow thanks so much for the info bulion always thought robert palmer was bigger though but i guess its not aas much as a surpirse as ray charles. are they sure they got the charts right? i was watching countdown re-runs and i noticed that a lot of songs which actually charted in the top ten were never mentioned on countdown. a classic example carly simon with jessie. yet they managed to play songs which didn't even reach the top ten on the charts in thir top ten. bucks fizz "making your mind up" a classic example of this stuff up. any way thanks so much for the info its a real life saver
Oh wow, I remember "Free" by Deneice Williams, I'm so happy it charted in Australia! I'm surprised that Australia's own Rick Springfield only had fair success here but huge success in the US? Did Oz radio not support his music at the time? I find that a lot with many Aussie acts in the 80's.. Men At Work, Air Supply, Little River Band... their music charted a lot better in the US than it did here down under. Isn't that a bit of an insult to the local industry? Why are they doing so much better overseas than in their own country???

Did Eartha Kitt have any charting songs here? Particularly any off her "I Love Men" album!!!
yeah I noticed that too ginny, at least jessie's girl was a number one success for rick in OZ.
Shaun, something to look at for "Shake Your Tailfeather" is the 27 weeks it spent on the charts -- that's over 6 months as a hit single! I'm guessing it got lots of airplay in many parts of the country, but at different times. So when it was, say a top 40 hit in Melbourne it wasn't doing anything in Sydney, and then when Sydney came on board it was off the charts in Melbourne, etc. This would acount for its long chart run, but its relatively low national placing.

And if that 83 date isn't a typo, the song became a hit 3 years after The Blues Brothers soundtrack came out!

Oh, and Ginny, while some Australian acts did better overseas, if you compare US chart placings to Australian chart placings for Men At Work, you'll see Australia actually comes out a little ahead:

Men At Work in the US: Four top 10 hits (+one more top 40 hit),
Men At Work in AUS: Four top 10 hits (+2 more top 40 hits)

For Rick Springfield, meanwhile, there may have been some resentment that he left Australia for the US almost immediately after his first hit, never to return. (In fact, he didn't perform a single live show in Australia between 1972 and 2007!) So some lingering resentment + a lack of live supporting dates to promote his music is probably what had the biggest impact on Springfield's so-so Australian chart career...

well i guess that's a little more reassuring so i'll accept the fact that shake your tailfeather had a low chart position. but it really got me thinking though. anyway could i have some more info please? musch appreciated

i wonder if "down under" was an international #1?
Thanks breadalbane, I always wondered why singers like Rick Springfield, Olivia, Helen Reddy, etc had much bigger success in the US than Australia. It would be like someone from Sweden having a number one single in the US and not scoring anything in their own country. It's a bit of an insult, but I suppose I could see the resentment if they left Australia and never came back. I think Helen Reddy ran into this problem in the 70's, she ditched her Australian citizenship and it was like her way of spitting on her roots.

I used to hear Rick Springfield on the American Top 40 countdown all the time in the 80's and would always wonder why I never heard the same songs in Australia. In fact "Love Somebody" was my favourite song of his and I discovered that on the American Top 40 countdown! How odd is that?

hey bulion.

ac/dc chart positions
thanks so much bulion! as you can see i'm a huge eagles fan. hear your doing the anual top 100 charts so i'll leave you alone for a while. thanks again
fliptop, AC/DC were done on the first of these pages. 8-May-08. So if you click on Chart Position Pre-1989 and hit Ctrl+F, type in AC/DC, and it'll bring them up for ya.
thanks bulion

hey Bulion, i would seriously appreciate an answer for this one.

Several sources claim that the 60s song "I Live For The Sun" by The Sunrays was a #1 hit in Australia but I cannot find any source anywhere on the internet that shows when it topped the Australian charts and for how long.

Did it really chart at #1 or is it just another one of those mistakes that Wikipedia made?
The Sunrays:

11-Sep-65*HP-20*WI-23 - I Live for the Sun

The highest it reached was a No.2 position in Brisbane and No.3 in Sydney.
thanks, I'll get Wikipedia to change their "I Live For The Sun" article.
How did Lou Christie , Jan and Dean,and Lesley Gore do?
I'm interested in the positions of a couple of oldies - Graham Bonnet & John Fogerty (solo work). Thanks

Thanks for the very interesting info on the chart run (and relative market placings) for "Shake A Tailfeather"! I knew there had to be SOME reason it lasted on the charts for 27 weeks, and indeed it did seem to roll out slowly across the country (on and off the charts in S>A before it made its chart run in W>A, for instance.) Didn't realize it never charted in NSW, though. GIves you some indication that some of those lower charting hits could have been very popular in certain pockets of the country!

Hi bullion, is there any chance you could provide chart info for Ween albums? I know they have had albums in the top 100 in Australia, but not top 50 (suprisingly!).
Any info you could provide would be appreciated.
I am working on the Top 100 albums soon, so I don't have that info at hand yet.
Once again thank you bulion.
I'm looking for Johnny Diesel (& the Injectors), Diesel, Mark Lizotte, Diesel/Wilson. I've already got singles & albums from above search engine but was wondering if there were any pre-1989 or beyond #50 on ARIA's watch.

THX in advance.

I'm trying desperately to sort out Cliff Richard's hits in Oz - especially around the pre and post AMR/ARIA split. It's especially confusing because some titles appear to have much longer chart runs on the AMR Chart versus the ARIA Chart - I'm guessing because AMR was Top 100 -v- ARIA only Top 50 for a period anyway. However if ARIA went to a Top 100 in January 1989 is there any way of getting the full Top 100 runs for singles and/or albums?

Any data would be much appreciated.
Now I'm after Kevin Johnson: I'm know "Bonnie Please Don't Go" and "Rock and Roll I Gave You the Best Years of My Life" charted well. Could I get albums too: I'll check the albums page.

THX in advance.
Any chance of getting the Australian chart info for Sheena Easton's You Could Have Been With Me and Lulu's I Could Never Miss You? Thanks in advance.
Sorry I found Sheena's chartings in the preceding thread but didn't see Lulu's I Could Never Miss You so still hoping you can provide its chart info - thanks in advance.
Thx for the earlier post with the answers to my requests!

Not sure if these folks ever charted: Saints, Stranglers, Martha & The Muffins (a.k.a M+M)....
Johnny Diesel:

06-06-Nov-89*HP-83*WI-03 - Since I Fell for You (AMR)
11-23-Aug-92*HP-59*WI-10 - One More Time
15-22-May-94*HP-57*WI-07 - Still Got a Long Way to Go (w/ Jimmy Barnes)
18-18-Jun-95*HP-75*WI-05 - Get it On

(first column is single number in chart order)
His first single was the Nov 1988 "Don't Need Love", so nothing pre 1988 for him.
Last edited:

I only have ARIA Top 100's from Jan 1990 onwards, so any 1989 Cliff Richard info I supply is only from AMR. So below are his 1988 onward chart entries...

07-Aug-89*HP-63*WI-04 - The Best of Me

Thanks Bulion. Much appreciated.
Am looking to see whether any singles by the Australian bands' Crawlspace ("Away") or Turnstyle ("Spray Water on the Stereo") charted in the Australian singles charts.
How did Bill Withers and Teddy Pendergrass do?
hi bulion et al, I'm now searching for Renée Geyer.

Both singles and albums please. I'll remember to look at the albums list.

THX in advance.
Am also searching for any recordings by Ammonia which may have charted 1995-1998 (ie "Drugs", "Suzi Q", "Satin Only", "Monochrome" etc)
Hi bulion I just wanted to say thanks regarding the requests, i've never requested but I always take a quick look on this thread

I did have one request though, bring a New Zealander, I'd like to know the stats (if any) on "Poi E" by the Patea Maori Club in 1984.

Hey bulion,

thanks a lot for the charts. Could you write the charts from Keith West, The Herd, The Small Faces, Scott McKenzie, The Marquis Of Kensington, The Tremeloes, Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich, Michael Jackson Cat Stevens, Sting (with the song "Shape of my heart) and Status Quo (if it not write before), please?

Bulion, tell me please did Opus chart in Australia with "Life is Life" and any other songs?
Was chasing any chart details for an new wave Australian band, called The Expression. I believe they had a couple of singles and maybe an album that charted around the mid1980s.
Also whilst I'm at it did any of the legendary Painters and Dockers' releases ever chart - possible "Nude School", which I think was released in 1987?
Oh, and I'd also like to know if the bands Telex, Yello and Yellow Magic Orchestra had any singles chart entries

Hi & thx in advance, I'm after Billy Thorpe singles, both solo or with The Aztecs. I've already got albums and ARIA releases. I understand some of his early releases would be pre-1965.
Thnks for the last lot of chart details - can you advise on which singles by The Badloves charted.
Hi, thanks for your informations. Could you write the charts from Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Troggs, Modern Talking and Lynyrd Skynyrd please? And how long was the Song "Never Say Die" from Jon Bon Jovi in the australian charts?

Thanks for those bulion. I'm guessing the 1910 Fruitgum Co. cover of "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy" didn't chart then?
Something strange goin on
Something's wrong
Gloom in the room
Outside is the storm
All alone in the crib
Watchin the tube
Yo-o-o-o is that what I think?
Did I see somethin move?
Chill down your spine
Your heart fills with fright
Not filled by the things
They walk through the walls
With no time to stall
Well that's who you call!

That's right folks if you have a problem with ghosts in Queensland just call GHOSTBUSTERS!
I would love some chart posistions of:

Belinda Carlisle
Cheap Trick
Ultra Vox (Vienna esp.)
Jimmy Barnes/Cold Chisel

Thanks to all who've submitted info - It's been invaluable to me in putting my music video dvds together!
"Vienna" got to #11 in 1981. I can tell you that much.
Melissa, I will get to these soon. There is a specific Madonna thread that has all of her chart info too. If you click on the "Australian Chartifacts" header it will open up all of the previous threads. Go to page 5 and you will see a thread simply entitled "Madonna".

Also Cold Chisel's chart positions are in "Chart Positions Pre-1989" Part One.

only the version of "Jump in My Car" from a couple of years ago has he had on the charts (thankfully).
Thanks for the info you supplies bulion. Really surprised with the low peak of Somewhere Out There. Honestly thought it would have hit at least Top 20.

Thanx bulion. Was Ozzy Osbourne in the charts?
nothing from Ozzy on the singles chart.
Can you write the pre top50-charts since 1988 from The Rolling Stones, Simply Red, Londonbeat and REM, please?
spatz, The Rolling Stones were done in the "Chart Positions Pre 1989", part 1 thread last June. So click on the header of PRE 1989 and you'll a whole heap of previous posts, and then down the bottom should be "Chart Positions Pre 1989". Just use the Ctrl F keys to find The Rolling Stones.

Londonbeat's first chart entry was in January 1991, so they won't be done.


02-Nov-87*HP-84*WI-07 - The One I Love

Simply Red:

30-Sep-85*HP-21*WI-17 - Money's Too Tight (to Mention)

I actually mean the peaks 51-100 since 1988.

Thanks a million, bulion for the Mama Cass information. After purchasing David Kent's book of the 1970-1992, I'm beginning to think it will be worth while investing in the pre 1970 one as well.
Thanx a lot for the information! Could you write the peaks 51-100 from A-ha, Tasmin Archer, Take That, Bananarama, Extreme, Bryan Adams, Metallica; Jon Bon Jovi, DJ Bobo, Phil Collins, Genesis and Bon Jovi since 1988 too, please?

freakystevie, in answer to your question, The ARIA Top 100 charts for 1988 and 1989 were only published in-house and for record companies, but the original info is missing, so it has not been included in my upcoming book. So for now we have to rely on the AMR info.

Thanks for the answer Bulion. In hindsight I thought my question was a bit dumb.

Anyway it's a shame that this info went missing. Thesedays I reckon most people would probably prefer to use ARIA's data as the "official" charts for 88 & 89. However because ARIA's data only goes up to 50 I suppose we would have to combine the 2 different sets of data which unfortunately create some unavoidable differences. How are you going to deal with this in your book?

Coldcut featuring Lisa Stansfield's 'People Hold On' peaked at #79 on the ARIA chart (and #91 on the AMR chart). Although ARIA peaks beyond #50 aren't available pre January 1990, its 1989 peak of #79 is listed in the Chartifacts column for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels vs Lisa Stansfield's 'People Hold On' entry around January 1997.
Was "Fun Factory" in the charts?
Nothing for Fun Factory spatz
And Swinging Blue Jeans?

Hi Bulion. You once posted hits for Human League - and wrote that "then there was "Heart Like a Wheel" in 1990", which meant I should search this site. I tried to search, but no chart information on this band after 1989 is shown. Can you please verify, if Human League charted in Australia after 1989 (and with which singles)?

Thanks in advance!

30-Sep-90*HP-64*WI-8a - Heart Like a Wheel - Human League
Could I please get full week-by-week chart positions for singles by Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, Black Eyed Peas, Avril Lavigne, Lady GaGa and P!nk?Thanks in Advance.

Whos the current number right now? Who do you think will top it next week?

Also, is your chart book still available and how can I purchase a copy. Cheers!
helo, you can go to the ARIA website, scroll down and hit the section that says "This Week in Chart History", and then down the bottom of that page is a link to download the order form for the book.

Otherwise, go to the thread on this site and do it from there.
Have you the charts from Desmond Dekker, Harry Belafonte, Milli Vanilli and the Top-100 charts from Mr. Big?

Hi Bulion! Could you post single chart histories for Boney M, Chic, Eruption, Gloria Gaynor, Gibson Brothers, Ritchie Family, Amii Stewart, Sister Sledge, Sylvester, Village People, Grace Jones, Odyssey, Ottawan, Anita Ward, Diana Ross and Kool & The Gang.
Pasi, a lot of those bulion already listed in the first CHART POSITIONS PRE 1989 thread! I was also very interested to see how disco artists charted in Australia... was surprised that Gibson Brothers charted here with "Que Sera Mi Veda" (one of my favourites) but not "Mandalay"..

Have MSFB, Cerrone, Silvetti, or Salsoul Orchestra charted here?
Hi Kingofmasks! Thanks for your note, found information for most of artists I asked... So, now I'm intersted in singles charts for Eruption, Gloria Gaynor, Gibson Brothers (didn't find info for GB), Amii Stewart, Odyssey, Ottawan, Anita Ward, Thelma Houston, Loleatta Holloway, Claudja Barry, Lipps Inc, Patrick Hernandez, Dee D. Jackson, Ritz and Baccara.
Hi & thnx in advance. I'm now after singles & albums by Stevie Wright (ex-The Easybeats: I have their info already).
Whoa, there's a lot of people requesting positions. I just have two questions, anyway.

Did Ben E. King chart in 1961 and/or 1986/7 with "Stand by Me", and if so, what did he chart at; and did the soundtrack to the movie Stand by Me chart here in Australia? Thanks in advance.
Well I have "Stand By Me" down as charting at #45 in 1961 & #82 in 1987.
Have you the charts from Lionel Richie & Bruce Springsteen?
spatz; if you go to the green banner that says "PRE-1898", and click on it, it will bring up all the posts under that banner.
On the second page of that banner, is a thread called "Chart Positions Pre 1989", on which you'll find Lionel Richie and Bruce Springsteen's charting singles.

Or there is a link to it at the top of this page

Thank you for the peaks. Was Slade, Eric Carmen and Nick Kamen in the charts?
