Kenny Rogers’ ‘Lucille’ kept Boney M’s ‘Ma Baker’ at bay for a 3rd week as the former spent a 4th week at 1 while the latter sat at 2 for a 3rd week.
Peter McCann’s ‘Do You Wanna Make Love’ was the biggest climber this week, moving up 5 places from 10 to 5, giving him his first time as biggest climber.
Bonnie Tyler experienced her first biggest faller in a week as ‘More Than A Lover’ dropped 5 places from 12 to 17.
Joe Dolan’s ‘Hush Hush Maria’ moved on to 15 weeks and had now been the oldest on the charts for 4 weeks.
Two songs left the charts this week, the first being The Bellamy Brothers’ ‘Crossfire’ which spent 12 weeks in the top 20 and peaked at 6, falling 4 weeks short of the achievement of their previous hit (and only other to date), ‘Let Your Love Flow’ which had managed 16 weeks and peaked at 1.
Also leaving the chart was Cliff Richard’s ‘When Two Worlds Drift Apart’ which had only lasted 1 week and spent that at number 19. Cliff had had 3 songs so far that managed 2 weeks on the charts, one of which ‘Sunny Honey Girl’ spent both of them at 20, so this was his worst weeks to date, but not his lowest peak.
Brotherhood Of Man’s last hit, ‘Save Your Kisses For Me’ had finished its chart run on 6 August 1976, but they were back with a second hit, ‘Angelo’ which had been their second UK chart topper, knocking Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love’ from the top spot before spending just 1 week there. It also managed to top the charts in Ireland while going to number 2 in Belgium, 4 in Holland, 14 in Germany, 27 in New Zealand and 70 in France. There were some accusations that the song sounded too similar to Abba’s 1976 hit ‘Fernando’ but co-writer of ‘Angelo’ and a member of Brotherhood Of Man, Lee Sheridan denies that there was an attempt to copy.
The other new entry was ‘Oh Me, Oh My, Goodbye’. In South Africa the artist’s name was listed as Bubbley, while in other countries, including their native Holland, they were known as Champagne. Not sure why the name was changed in South Africa. ‘Oh Me, Oh My, Goodbye’ was their second single and it went to 2 in Holland, 3 in Belgium and 25 in Germany. The song features Martin Duiser in the song writing credits, Duiser had been the song writer on Cornelia’s 1975 hit ‘Another Love To Come’.
