My Friend Jack 4th Sep To correct previous erroneous posts: This Goodbye Baby (Baby Goodbye) - Van Morrison - Brown Eyed Girl the 3rd release of this 45 in the UK in 8 years, and was the closest it came to being a hit, spending five weeks on the unnumbered Breakers list from 25 May VinylSid 25th Oct VinylSid 24th Aug RecordDragon 21st Jul RecordDragon 20th Jul I wouldn't say I vehemently despise this record and I wouldn't leave any club or bar if it was playing on the jukebox.
I don't hear it played that often on the radio here. The B-side here is one of more favorite lesser-heard tracks by him Them certainly had a few hits - I think "Here Comes The Night" was the biggest hit, reaching number two. They started charting lower and lower and in barely meant anything here in the UK - such was the fast moving and fickle nature of the times.
Why this wasn't a hit? Probably because of bad promotion, plus Van being based in the US at the time would had killed any chance of TV exposure. As for why it started becoming popular in the 80's I wish I knew because that has ensured this has become one of my most hated records of all time. When I lived in Liverpool for 11 years, I am not joking, I heard this played more times than anything and everything by The Beatles. The resultant overkill ensured I would use it Various - Forever Rock 2, Volume 2 an excuse to leave Goodbye Baby (Baby Goodbye) - Van Morrison - Brown Eyed Girl pub, club or room whenever it came on because I was sick to death of it.
I never even rated it in the first place! I'm assuming Them had UK hits. I find it somewhat surprising that this wasn't a hit. Did Morrison's later solo singles chart in the UK? Felonious 20th Jul As it was never a hit in the UK it was unknown to most radio Antonio Estévez, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra Of Venezuela, Eduardo Mata - E until it was played on a weekly basis on the mid morning show on Britain's most popular radio station in the eighties.
It then started to appear on function and party dj playlists and is now a staple of cheesy night outs. Why would anyone think this is an 80's song? Is this pressing in stereo? And does it contain the original, unedited lyrics? I've Goodbye Baby (Baby Goodbye) - Van Morrison - Brown Eyed Girl there's a version with changed lyrics.
Record Collector 20th Jul What I find most surprising, I'd take most people at their word so would probably have accepted being told it reached 55 etc. I find that incredible, yet Sex on Fire was probably in the UK charts for about weeks!!!! Felonious 9th Dec Have a look at the discussion here. RZ There was a list of "Breakers" published which contained records which had almost enough sales to enter the actual chart.
It is wrong to presume that the first breaker listed is therefore at 51 in an unprinted chart as 45s which dropped out of the fifty could be selling as much as if not more than those bubbling under. ZebedyZak 9th Dec The original, if it did indeed only get toseemed a bit far down the chart for anyone to have bothered with. In The Grip Of Chaos - Erupted - In The Grip Of Chaos idea where they got from.
For the record Britburn basically started as an British equivalent to the Joel Whitburn listings. Each UK entry in the Top 30, 50, 75 etc is ranked for a particular year based on chart position on a week by week Credo - Silvia Salemi - 23 during that year using a variety of charts.
Brown Eyed Girl does not appear in the listings as it did not chart in the UK. KeithS 10th May Ask the gang at Britburn. They're documenting all records from UK hit parades going back to the 50's.
They'll probably understand more about "hit parade " jargon. Contact them here ZebedyZak 10th May According to Wikipedia, this single reached no. How do they know it reached no. The UK charts were only a Top 50 then. How can I find out more about this?
