Chart for stowaways – August 2020

August saw flashbacks to 1990, with the return of The Beloved to the charts with their debut studio album Happiness. From a humble re-entry at number 4 at the start of the month, it climbed gradually to the top spot, sitting there for the latter half of the month. For the final week, their 1989 single Your Love Takes Me Higher finally climbed up to the top spot on both the Singles and Catalogue Singles charts, finally deposing Pet Shop Boys‘ latest recreation of West End girls from both charts after eight weeks. Meanwhile, Sparks continued their domination of all the charts, with three previous chart-toppers remaining in the top ten for the whole month.

Here’s the album chart for the final week of the month:

  1. The Beloved – Happiness
  2. Erasure – The Neon
  3. Pet Shop Boys – Hotspot
  4. The Beloved – Where it Is
  5. Sparks – A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip
  6. Sparks – Past Tense – The Best Of
  7. Sparks – Gratuitous Sax & Senseless Violins
  8. Erasure – Hits! The Very Best of
  9. Erasure – Total Pop! The First 40 Hits
  10. Depeche Mode – Spirits In The Forest
