Enjoyed reading about Morrissey saying "there are some bad people on the right". Fast forward 30 years he (arguably) is one of them!!!
I was almost going to comment that many think Moz is of the right these days; but thought I'd try to keep it more focused on the chart stats.
Agreed! Amazing to see these chart flops, can't wait to see if any of my favorites pop up over the years

Another good week with JAMC, PWEI and Michelle Shocked. You're right PWEI-zation was the one promoted as the single.
^ Thanks for the info, OBOne! I have no recollection of hearing that PWEI song before, though I only really knew 'Wise Up! Sucker' by them at the time.
I find the chart history of PWEI to be rather odd. They had fair success in the UK but only one single that i know of made the top 100 (X,Y and Zee Number #89 in 1991) and yet everything else fell below the top 100. Aussie chart pickers must have liked that one enough to boost it's success i suppose. Thank you very very much for the blog this year. It's nice to have this info out there preserved for posterity as it were. Look forward to 1990.
Thanks Jesse'77! I'm glad some people enjoy reading the blog, as I know it has a somewhat niche audience.

Yeah, I always find it strange when songs I know from then don't chart at all, while plenty of others I've never heard of before do.
I've posted a list of all singles debuting in 1989 that peaked within the 101-150 region of the chart here:

This week in 1990 - the first ARIA chart of the 1990s... with new top 150 entries from James Reyne, The Shivers, Gene Pitney, and Katrina and The Waves.

This week in 1990 - new entries from The Georgia Satellites, Underworld, Quincy Jones featuring Ray Charles and Chaka Khan, Malcolm McLaren and the Bootzilla Orchestra, and Paul Simpson featuring Adeva.
