Additional Information

On November 15, 1980, K-Tel‘s Chart Explosion (NE 1103) entered the UK Albums Chart at #15. On December 6, 1980 it peaked at #6 and remained on the chart for 12 weeks.

All tracks in this collection were hits in 1980, except “We Don’t Talk Anymore” by Cliff Richard, which had left the chart in October, 1979, and “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar, which did not chart in the UK.
The Tourists had a bigger hit in 1980 with “So Good To Be Back Again” [UK #8], or they could have even chosen “I Only Want To Be With You”, which charted in 1979 but peaked at #4 in January, 1980.
Kelly Marie and Odyssey both had bigger hits in 1980: “Feels Like I’m In Love” and “Use It Up and Wear It Out”, respectively. They were both #1 hits and both appear on Ronco‘s Radio Active, which charted the very same day as Chart Explosion.
“D.I.S.C.O.” by Ottawan also appears on Radio Active. However, the label on the cover claimed it had gone to #1. Only in the Netherlands and Norway. They could only manage #7 in their native France.
“I Die: You Die” by Gary Numan, and “Enola Gay” by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark also appear on Radio Active..
