Thank you! I've always wondered what the EOY charts of the '80s were. Any possibility of a decade end chart?
I know bulion posted a Top 100 from the 90s & 00s http://www.australian-charts.com/forum.asp?todo=viewthread&id=30544&pages=5 a while back but I don't think there's one for the 70s & 80s. Maybe I'm wrong?
Antlers, I've had all of them on my site for quite a while now, including a decade end list.

Kev, chri8topher calculated a Top 100 of the '80s for his Fun Countdowns thread a few years ago, which I have listed on my site. I also have a '70s one done by somebody else, but it's poor calculated, so I was hoping that chri8topher would do one as well.
There are old threads which have the EYO charts for the 80's, however this one has the AMR EYO chart of 1989 as well which I've been looking for (yay!) Grant's website is probably the best when it comes to chart positions as he lists all chart entries in each year as well as having the end of year and decade charts.

Love your top next top 100's but the way
No worries matty d. I'm pleased that you're enjoying looking back at the Top 200s. Yes, I agree Grant's website is magnificent. It was his site that inspired me to develop my charts. Well done Grant D!
Thanks Kev, though, credit goes to you for calculating the bottom 75 of the 1970 to 1973 AMR Top 100 Singles of the Year lists so that I could have Top 100's for all of the '70s years on my site. By the way, have you since recalculated them because I've noticed that the positions vary slightly in the lists you've posted here.
Cheers Grant! I'm in the process of calculating the biggest selling singles from the 70s (plus the 80s & 90s as the ARIA/AMR Top 100s are incorrect). I recalculated the Year End Top 100 from 1970 but the ones from 71,72 & 73 haven't changed. The correct 70-73 charts are the ones that I posted a few days ago.
Looking forward to seeing them Kev, especially the '70s list.
Just wanted to point out the Top 100 80's list on savaegrant's site is the official AMR calculation printed in Rolling Stone's Best Albums of the 80’s edition. I could be wrong, but this list always seems to me to be reminiscent of the 50-1 (or similar) points system. This system always ranks lower HP's and but longer WK's better over longer stays at #1 (check out Run To Paradise at #11 beating out the 8 week #1 We Are The World). This chart prompted me to start making my own calculations so many years ago to get to my own Top 100 80's list just revealed on the Fun Countdowns game, which honours owe #1 hits a little better.
I agree, the AMR chart is inaccurate. I'm too busy to calculate the decade charts, plus your 80s chart looks the goods. Well done chri8topher.

Looking forward to the 70s and 90s Fun Countdowns!
Does anyone know where I can find links to access mp3s of the take 40 end of year episodes for the late 80s with Barry Bissell? It would be great to be able to stream or download them?
Well done on these BigKev. It must have taken some time to put all of these together. I've noticed a few little nitpicky mistakes as I've started going through the next top 100 from 101 to 200 so I can compile them into mp3 lists. In the 1989 101 to 200, both Motley Crue's 'Kickstart my Heart' and Belinda Carlisle's 'La Luna' didn't enter the charts until the start of 1990. Still loving the lists though. Cheers. Finn
Updated the 1980's EOY Top 100 with the other Top 100 for each year. Adding US and UK peak positions also.
The AMR decade charts are a joke. From memory, 'Love Shack' was in the 80's one, yet it had only been on the chart for about 6 weeks (or less) by the time the 80's ended, and had only just made it to #1 at the end of the decade.
The thought has crossed my mind that David Kent made a mistake with the 1987 annual chart, omitting Cameo's 'Word Up'.

Looking at its top 40 chart run (entirely within 1987):

38 31 17 14 11 8 6 9 14 18 23 28 40

How could a run like that miss the top 100 singles of the year, when e.g. Rockmelons' 'Rhymes', peaking at #26, just scraped in?

Or Paul Simon's 'You Can Call Me Al' at #100 with this chart run during 1987:

7 8 12 13 23 28 34 42 50 63 96

That's 4 weeks in the top 20 vs 8 weeks.

It doesn't make sense to me, given David Kent's charts were based on chart runs/points. Even if they were sales-based and 'Word Up' peaked during a relatively low sales period, it still wouldn't add up, to me, that 'You Can Call Me Al' beat it.
