Thanks again Bulion, I loved "Stomp" by Brothers Johnson, always a party classic! Kenny Rogers' "Coward Of The County" is another great song, good beat and sad story. I haven't heard that one in a while though, one of my favourites!
Really appreciate the list...Good to see some accreditations for these years.

Now my countdowns won't look so bare for these songs.

Ah this took my back to my youth (yes I'm ancient). There's soooo many songs here that I'd totally forgotten about. Are you going to be posting any more of the list (and other years as well)?.


14/04/2009 23:40

Yes, I too would love to see the rest of this information even Just the TOP 10 entries

If needed Bulion, you can send me the info and i'll help type them up for you


Guys I moved your messages down here, as I wanted to have a consistent flow of the charting songs for each year.
I will be doing this for each year, so please don't put any messages on these threads until you see December of that year placed on the thread.
I'm glad you both liked the info.

Australian Chart Entries 1980 Part 1 (Jan to 7-July):


Australian Chart Entries 1980 Part 2 (14-July to 29-December):

"Tusk" by Fleetwood Mac charted in 1979 and 1980 and in both years it reached peak of No. 3? Or is it just an overall position? It seems that "Gimme Gimme Gimme" by Abba also charted in 2 years (Top 10), but no sign of it in 1980 Year Ending...
Abba peaked in January 1980 with Gimmex3, but it was probably not enough to secure a Top 100 EOY placing.

Tusk hit No.3 for two weeks in early December 1979, and spent two weeks in the Top 10 (7 and 9) in Jan 1980. It was #35 EOY in 1979 and #97 for 1980. Tusk spent 13 weeks on the charts in 1980 whereas Gimme stayed for only 10 weeks, falling fast and gone from the Top 100 by mid-March.
I have a missing entry on the 10 nov 1980 in my records. Does anyone know what was at position 67 that week?

Can't Help Myself by Flowers.
Thank you again. I'm going to assume this song is also the song which is missing from weeks 16 Nov pos. 80, 24 nov pos. 84, 1 Dec pos. 88 and 8 Dec pos. 98?
Hi, how are y'all?

I was comparing the data posted with the section Hits of the World published by Billboard Magazine on the issue of October 18, 1980. In this link you can find the issue.


And I found an incongruency on peaking position for "Private Idaho" by B-52's. The weekly top 20 published there reported that the song peaked at No 5.
I'm sorry, I made two mistakes in my last post.

Actually, I found two incongruencies, Billboard reported that "Private Idaho" peaked at #8, and Echo Beach peaked at #5.

The section Hits of the World can be seen on page 118 (if you download the pdf file)
I had a look at page 118 on the BB edition 18-10-1980.

Don't know what to say, other than its weird but it says Kent Music Report, but some of those placings/positions don't match up.

Private Idaho peaked at #11 and Echo Beach only made it to No.6.
