Double Listing - Quick Step & Side Kick

#3 & #8 are the same. Per Wikipedia the British title was changed to just 'Side Kick' in U.S. & Canada.

Data fixed, thanks

We can only deal with complete charts, and only those charts we can access. For example we do not have a (good) complete chart for albums in the USA, if you know of where we can access one we will add its entries.

Tell us your sources

Outstanding Research on Chart Entries!

This is the most reliable, most accurate and most researched list of ThompsonTwins' singles I've ever seen on the net before. Well done! Extremely informative, I shall refer to this list in my endeavors to continue keeping the music of the Thompson Twins alive for future generations to come. I personally know member Joe Leeway and will share this page with him as well

Thank you

Two of us (Steve & A) first saw the Thompson Twins when they were playing a University gig. There were two other bands in the two main rooms so they had to play on a tiny stage at one end of the Lounge Bar. Their set was so good (and word spread so quickly) that by the time they'd finished the room was completely packed. Next time they visited they got the biggest venue. Their gigs were always fantastic. Pass on greetings from a couple of fans
