Top 100 singles of 1976 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkGdD76wsso
Thank you, a favorite year of music for me, and pretty much the major start point of my collection as it is from here things get a whole lot of serious from now on.
This year also starts the rise of such shows as "Sounds" and "Countdown" as hit making powerhouses that we have come to know them as. As this is the first year their dual impact upon the 'performance on the show' and MAJOR and MEMORABLE 'hit record' is truly apparent, especially if the backing came from the "Countdown" direction.
^ Glad you like it. 1976 was 2 years before I was born, so I'm discovering some new (old) music through compiling these. Many of the 'videos' I've used are TV performances, but they're still interesting to see.
I re-did the audio for several (but not all) tracks that had mono or poor quality audio... which was somewhat of a challenge, given, for whatever reason, back then many of the videos (at least those I've sourced from rage) were playing at a different speed to the audio, requiring the audio to be sped up or slowed down to be in sync with the visuals. It's not just the '4%' speed difference thing that sometimes happens with PAL; the audio for these was up to + or - 5 point something% for a couple of tracks, and one I think was only a fraction (-0 point 8%) slower than the visual.
I will probably attempt a 1975 video at some point, but might give it a break for a while. This one took me nearly a week to put together.
Just watch your top 100 singles of 1976. Great work but just wonder where you find the Rock Me Gently clip from Sherbet. I never seen it before and can't find it in Youtube?
Thank you for your information. Hopefully someone will upload that Sherbet clip in full.
Scott - I don't know if it's the same performance/video used on Countdown, but I have a Sherbet greatest hits DVD.
It looks like it was a 'made for a TV show' video; but it's hard to distinguish back then what was a 'real' music video vs. what wasn't. Daryl messes his lip sync up at one point in this just-over-1-minute clip, so I assume it was all or mostly done in one take.
Thank you Brad I have the sherbet DVD. My Dad is a sherbet fan and he said it is the original rock me gently clip. He is also a Mad Hush fan and if anyone has any original clips such as Glad all over, Too young to know , Nothing stay the same forever etc. would be really appreciate if you can upload on YouTube thank you.
I can upload the 1:08 clip of the video I have, though obviously it would be better to have the whole thing.

You almost seem to forget just how "BIG' Country Music was as a chart entity during the early years of the 1970s. This brought all that back to me. It also was the year I started to develop my musical tastes (sadly was unaware of the group Taste at this point) that would mature and develop in the decades to come. It also saw the revival of Australian recordings on the charts and the first notches in many a now long career for many artists. A nice touch on the video was the more professional approach of the TOTP dancers, a level that the Countdown dance crew would only equal by decades end.
I've made a video featuring top 10 singles from the 1990s that do not appear in the end of year top 100 chart, plus #11-peaking singles from the 1990s that also missed the end of year chart:
I can definitely sense a decline in the quality of the music in this from around the mid 90s.
I may do a 1974 top 100 video in the future, but the 1975 one was a bit difficult in that I had to use TV performances for most of the 'videos', as a lot of songs don't have proper music videos (or, at least, they're not on YouTube) or a TV performance was used as the music video. Plus, 1974 is the first year that the Kent Music Report published these charts at the time. While David Kent later back-calculated annual (and weekly) charts for earlier years, I don't consider these official, as they were not published at the time. I'm not sure if the Go-Set charts (which preceded the Kent Music Report) published an annual chart.
Rage certainly aired a top 50 for 1988 as i remember staying up all night to watch it. As mentioned elsewhere there were several videos not played. I'm guessing they were running short of time.
JASE, I think it's more likely that rage discarded those videos they didn't air in the top 50 of 1988, though I guess it's possible that they also ran out of time. As it would have been the first annual chart they aired, they probably didn't know in advance that it was coming - so though they could chuck out videos they no longer 'needed' once they' fallen out of the top 50. Or so that's my theory.
I made a mistake in the top 10 (and #11) singles of the 1990s that missed the end of year chart video (I included a song that actually did make the end of year chart - Cliff Richard's 'The Millennium Prayer'), so here is the amended version - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTvNcrd-jjs
I remember Whenever You Need Somebody wasnt played in the countdown but it was played when Rick Astley guest programmed a few years back

I've had to re-edit some of these uploads to avoid issues with copyright ID. It seems now that WMG and UMG are identifying tracks where only 15 seconds have been used in a video - and, occasionally, the videos are blocked as a result ::)
