25 Years Ago This Week: March 29, 1992
Fifteen. That's how many songs from 1992 we have ahead of us in this week's flashback to the ARIA singles chart from 25 years ago. OK, 13 songs and two EPs if you want to get picky! A number 2, a number 3, a number 4 and a number 5 - but which is which? Not...

It didn't have a proper music video. It was performed by a model discovered in a night club. It had some pretty dodgy lyrics. It was one of the biggest hits of 1987. Paul's audition for Darth Maul didn't go as he'd hoped Thirty years ago this week, the song...

This Week In 1984: March 25, 1984
One song can change everything. There you'll be, plodding along releasing moderately successful records and then one of your singles explodes. Suddenly, you're one of the hottest properties in the world and everyone wants more of the same, thank you very mu...

The ARIA chart loved a makeover. Since its debut in 1983, the top 50 printout had been through four major format changes, with a few tweaks here and there along the way. This week in 1992, a five look made it national debut, having been trialled in at least...

As well as being a big year in music, 1987 saw significant developments in music TV in Australia. While  Countdown  was just months away from airing its final episode, Video Hits  had recently started on Channel 10, and  rage  and MTV  were about to launch....

This Week In 1984: March 18, 1984
The ARIA singles chart was a bit of a funny one this week in 1984. Three of the songs that entered lower down the top 100 would re-enter later - two going on to much greater success next time around. The other two top 50 misses were minor hits by male singe...

Number 1 singles and albums are pretty hard to achieve. Even harder - a career made up entirely of chart-toppers. Although, it must be said, the odds of managing that are somewhat increased by not releasing that many records. Eight years later, The Twelfth ...

30 Years Ago This Week: March 15, 1987
I love a chart week like this one. Four future top 10 singles - three of them top 5 hits. And I actually like all of them! A slew of big new hits debuted on the top 50 this week in 1987 From a Stock Aitken Waterman-sounding cover version to an emotional due...

I'm sure no band ever sets out to be a one-hit wonder. But if you had to be one, then best to have your sole smash single in the '80s. They looked the part and got off to a good start, but Re-Flex were just another short-lived '80s band Why? Well, as we all...

25 Years Ago This Week: March 8, 1992
Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers... If I was a rock music fan, I'd be loving delving back to when all those bands had their first big hits in Australia. But, I'm not. Still, no one forced me to do these chart flashbacks, so I guess I'll take the ro...
