Someone who posted on a pop forum I used to visit once posted a picture of a gold award for Mel & Kim's 'Respectable' that they'd bought on eBay. From memory (I don't think I saved it), it looked like an official ARIA award, too, and not one of the home-made 'gold presentation' discs.

So I'm piecing 1987 together and usually there are some duplicates. I've actually got a headache from trying to piece it together to not only eliminate duplicates but I have actual positions missing?

34 Weeks in total have some type of error. I'm sure it's a simple data entry issue but normally I find them straight away & not left scratching my head.

I'll post in here shortly the duplicates & if I can't find the missing them also.
Obviously all the top 50 charts from July to December are on my blog if the errors fall into those weeks/that section of the chart.

I can hopefully help with some info from the first half of the year depending what it is.

I assume I have the same spreadsheet you do - and I made corrections to the 1986 and 1985 tabs after noticing your posts about those years. But were there errors going back to 1980 as well? If so, I'll track down those threads and correct my spreadsheet for those years too.
I've completed 1984, 1985, 1986 so far. I plan to do the previous years.

I've gone right back to the beginning & noticed straight away that Elton John & Cliff Richard - Slow Rivers is listed as a sole debut in week three Funky Town was #01 but this is a Christmas break. So it's been moved to the next week & so forth but that then clashes with Owen Paul - My Favourite Time which cannot be shifted as it's a crossover from 1986 which all links together.

I'm going to shift back all the weeks back one tomorrow & adjust the points which will be a pain staking task but it must be done. Then I'll see what I come up with... I'm thinking not as many errors.

I need assistance in the year of 1987 would be greatly appreciated

In the week Mel & Kim - Respectable was spending it's only week at #01 I have a discrepancy.

#39?

I have x2 songs clashing at #36!

Angry Anderson -Suddenly
&
Chantoozies - He's Gonna Step On You Again

Anyone?

In the week Party Boys - He's Gonna Step O You Again was spending it's second week at #01 I have a discrepancy.

#67?

I have x2 songs clashing at #68!

Peter Gabriel - Big Time
&
Black Sorrows - Daughters Of Glory

Anyone?

In the week Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give Yo Up was spending it's second week at #01 I have a discrepancy.

#93?

I have x2 songs clashing at #95!

Chris Rea - Loving You Again
&
Cure - Just Like Heaven

Anyone?

Okay so the major errors were caused by ...

The The - Infected [1986] in the spread sheet has been denied it's second Christmas week at #86. Elton John & Cliff Richard - Slow Rivers has been given this position as it's debut. The remainder of Slow Rivers weeks fall correctly. The The - Infected is 100% #86! I refuse to believe otherwise. This would make Slow Rivers debut #88 giving it one less week.
I come to this conclusion based on the following;
If Slow Rivers was released in the Christmas period and sold enough to debut at #86 then all the positions below it would shuffle down one position rather than The The - Infected being completely ousted from it's frozen previous position.
There have been no debut's in a Christmas frozen week when it existed ever. The spread sheet provided has had many errors this is clearly one of them.
I awarded The The - Infected the secondary week this shuffled all the new debuts one week after they occurred. The missing positions were those songs that carried over from 1986 as they were then in the previous week.

There is one more issue however. The The - Infected actually made it's debut at #86 in the final week of 1986 so who's to say it didn't actually debut at #69?
We need something from either the last week of 1986 debuts or the first week of 1987 to reflect the official debuts to resolve this error.

If someone could help that would be great. Thank you.
*bump - this actual chart stuff - I need some answers
I only have top 20 data on me, but Are You Lonesome Tonight (double A side with I Gotta Know) first appeared in the top 20 at #14 in 1960, Daydream Believer (double A side with Goin' Down)at #7 in 1967 & Reet Petite at #15 in 1958. No info on the other two.

I can verify the query relating to the Top 50 positions:

w/e 26 July 1987 chart
TW LW TI
36 NEW 1 SUDDENLY Angry Anderson
39 36 4 HE'S GONNA STEP ON YOU AGAIN The Chantoozies

I'm not sure on the others, but the "yellow book 70-92" does show 'Infected' debuting on 29/12/86 and 'Slow Rivers' debuting on 5/1/87. Also the "green book Top 20s" doesn't perfectly repeat charts over the Christmas break for 22/12, 29/12 and 5/1 (unlike in other years). Most of the songs are steady but there are 4 small movements within the Top 20 of each 29/12 and 5/1. I'm not sure what the story for these were, whether there was a hidden chart or there was an extra Kent report or whatever. I never found an ARIA chart for those additional dates. But it does seem that at longest the Christmas break period was 2 weeks (29/12 and 5/1) with 5/1 the potentially repeated chart.
The spreadsheet did have 'Danger Zone' at #69 in that week you mentioned. Given the weirdness of the hidden? chart as shown in the "green book" with its minor movements I'd actually go with what was shown in the spreadsheet as its consistent with that and the "yellow book" debuts. Sorry if I've confused you. I don't have the Kent reports around this time so cannot verify it further than the points I've made. Just my own observations.
