Forum - ARIA Charts: Special Occasion Charts - Annual charts from 80s/90s videos

Here are some annual ARIA chart videos I've compiled, with about 15 seconds from the music video (if one exists) for each song:

This is really cool stuff you're doing!
^ Thanks, glad you like.
Top 100 of 1991 (100 to 61) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3diMZj0CA1s , using the top 100 chart that ARIA published at the time, rather than the different (and contentious) 61-100 segment of the chart published in the other annual chart of the 1990s thread here.
Top 100 of 1990 (100 to 61) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VObUpIyVmEo
Top 100 of 1992 (100 to 61) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eBmBXRs-3k
These are great. Would love to see the rest of the 70's.
Thanks brosa0. Being born in '78, I probably don't know a lot of the top 50 of earlier years, but know most of the bigger hits (if not by artist/title, when i hear them). That being said, I discovered a few songs I didn't know that I like when compiling the '79 one, so (eventually) I'll no doubt do a few earlier years from the 70s.

At the moment, I'm more focused on doing the lower half of the top 100 for the years from the early 90s, and I want to do the same for the other 80s years (1988 won't be happening though unless I can get a full top 100 for the year from ARIA, if one exists) but that may change.

Done mainly because the rage top 50 (40 to 1) earlier upload only contains the top 40, and also has several videos missing that rage didn't air.
AMR top 100 of 1988 (only singles that didn't make the ARIA top 50 of the year) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_LTXSQprLI

I've made this since I can't get an ARIA top 100 singles chart for 1988. Surprisingly, only 3 singles made the ARIA top 50 that didn't make the AMR top 50 of the year; but then I guess they were using the same data for almost half of the year. That being said, there are a couple of big differences between the two charts.

I enjoyed watching these clips. Trip down memory lane for sure. Random question, in your 50-100 snippets you have some songs which have been played on Rage. When are these from? I was really surprised to see Toni Pearen's In Your Room as one of these songs. Rage has a very Triple J feel so most songs either fall in this bracket or in the big clasic bracket like Wannabe. In Your Room doesn't really belong in either so really surprised it got played as it's a song that fizzled out and not to really be heard again.
^ K8, all of the digital TV rage-sourced clips I've used have been aired since mid-2008. I have used 1 or 2 analogue signal DVD Recorder recordings from rage where the original aspect ration was preserved (e.g. Blue Boy's 'Remember Me') rather than the enlarged to appear 16:9 ratio used on the digital station. I've also resorted to using a couple of VHS recordings from rage I had where I had no other/better source of the clip to use (e.g. Gloria Estefan 'Turn the Beat Around', Screaming Jets 'Helping Hand', Quad City DJ's 'C'Mon N' Ride It (The Train)' - the YouTube uploads of the latter all appear to be cropped so as to appear widescreen; personally I hate when uploaders do that!), though re-did the audio with mp3 for these tracks so it sounds better.

My recording of Toni Pearen's 'In Your Room' is from a 2009 'Let's Dance' special (videos with choreography) that aired on rage. They also aired the video again in June this year, as part of a 90s special.

I agree that rage is (unfortunately, IMO) much more heavily focused on Triple J 'alternative'-type music; some of which I like, but not wall-to-wall every week. I thought that, from around 2008, rage seemed more open to including some more retro pop/dance in their playlist, and from memory, someone suggested to them (on the old rage website guestbook) that Toni Pearen song for the Let's Dance special. They've also aired Toni Pearen's 'I Want You' in 2010 as part of a Wild Card special, which I uploaded here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mHs3KbN2lM . I also uploaded 'In Your Room' here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EN2fxxbdeNU .

If you didn't know already, Monday night (technically Tuesday morning) on ABC, rage air a Vault episode each week. This always has some theme to it. Often it also plays alternative stuff, but some rare dance/pop clips have also been shown on occasion. They often play some clips that haven't aired in many years/ever on rage, too. The playlists aren't usually posted on the website, but the moderator of the rage facebook page posts the playlist there every Monday, usually before noon. I also post it in this thread on the Countdown Memories forum:

I compiled a video for singles that peaked within the top 10 during the 80s, but missed the end of year top 100 charts - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqQBgJSirr0 . Also included, towards the end, are singles peaking at #11 during the 80s that missed the end of year charts.
