Ok I'll be the first to jump at this one. There's got to be something wrong with Bruce at Number 1. I've known this was the number 1 song of 1984 for a long time now and I've always suspected something wasn't quite right. Now I know it was in the chart for a long time, however it only peaked at number 5 - so it just has to to be wrong right?????.
i think 64 weeks in the charts would mean something. #1 isn't everything!
Yeah that's a point Chris, but weren't some of those 64 weeks in 1985?.

There was a similar situation in 1992 (or 1993) with November Rain finishing at Number 2 Year End after only peaking at Number 5 as well if I remember correctly.

Good day! Can you put there singles certification of 1984? We are very interested in it - we have many favourite songs in this year... Thannks
Certifications from 1982 to 1988 are not listed on the charts, so I can't handle your request.
1984 cleaned up, added to and finalized.
1984 was a good year for aussie hits, I see
1984 in music was indeed a VERY good. Some of my all-time favs came in '84.
Australian Chart Entries 1984 Part 1... January to mid July


Australian Chart Entries 1984 Part 2... mid July to the end of Dec.

1984 is my all-time favourite year of music. I was in Year 10 in high school. Prince's Purple Rain album was electrifying. Everyone wanted to go to the movies to see Footloose. We first heard of a lady called Madonna. Wham gave us Go Go t-shirts. The video for Thriller was released to huge hype. Springsteen released his epic Born in the USA, which he started recording in 1982. Frankie Goes To Hollywood completely captivated the UK. Cyndi Lauper released the anthem for all young girls, Girls Just Want to Have Fun. Lionel Richie released a flawless album, Can't Slow Down. My favourite cassette in high school was the various artists cassette, Throbbin '84. What a year.

ZZ TOP - Legs
TIME BANDITS - I Am Only Shooting Love


Hey Nate. I have the same errors in my chart information too. It's hard to determine the first one but for the second one, given that War Baby is listed with an EP (entry position) of #92 and it having made its debut during the week in question, I'd put my money on Only When You Leave being #91.

As for the last one, Legs has a chart run around that time of 13-14-23??-28-36 and I Am Only Shooting Love of 48-40-23??-26-16, which would suggest a more natural chart run if IAOSL was #32 instead of Legs. Hopefully somebody can confirm the positions, otherwise those would be my guesses.
Oh, I just noticed the posts above your most recent one. I can answer the David Bowie/Fixx one straight up. Modern Love is listed in my chart info at #39 for that week and One Thing Leads to Another at #38. And just like in the War Baby situation, In the Mood's EP is #90 (making I.O.U. #99) and To Sir With Love's EP is #85 (making When We Make Love #84).
I can confirm these from the late 1984 charts, straight from the ARIA Top 50 sheets:

22 16 14 I CAN DREAM ABOUT YOU Dan Hartman

23 14 12 LEGS ZZ Top
32 40 3 I AM ONLY SHOOTING LOVE Time Bandits

I also had MODERN LOVE at #39 in that week on my archives but don't have specific proof. The yellow book has ONE THING LEADS TO ANOTHER peaking at #38, so that would all seem to check out ok.
A big thank you to both savagegrant & DaveNT for assisting with the 1984 discrepancies.

In the week Wham! - Wake Me Up Before You Go Go was spending it's third week at #01 I have a discrepancy.


I have x2 songs clashing at #96!

QED - This One



FICTION FACTORY - (Feels Like) Heaven


It really could go either way on this one... Because these discrepancies are typo's I'm leaning towards QED being #93. I have come to that thought as the person in mind would have had it's debut of #96 in their mind causing them to re-type the entry as the same #.
No worries. By the way, it's only some of the Australian and Canadian releases of that Time Bandits single that are titled I Am Only Shooting Love. All of the other countries' releases are titled I'm Only Shooting Love and it's listed as such on all releases of the album that the single was taken from.
I have a missing entry on the 17 dec 1984 in my records. Does anyone know what was at position 94 that week?

Master and Servant by Depeche Mode.
Thank you
The thing to remember, freakystevie1, is that depending on sales, the single at number 5 one week may sell the same amount of units as the number 1 single the following week.
All of the Kent Music Report-era annual charts were calculated using a points system, based on chart runs; they were not based on actual sales. So the #1 single of 1984 doesn't necessarily mean it sold the most copies that year. Unfortunate that this is so, as we'll never know what the actual #1-sellers of the pre-ARIA years were. I suspect maybe the best-selling single of 1984 could have been 'I Just Called To Say I Love You', with that 8 week stint at #1.

The first sales-based annual chart in Australia was the ARIA top 50 of 1988 chart.
