Marty Wilde has secured the rare feat of chart success as a singer and songwriter across eight consecutive decades on the Official Albums and Singles Chart. The remarkable achievement by the former teen-pop icon – who is also the father of ’80s pop star Kim Wilde With his latest album Running Together, Marty landed at Number 75 on the Official Albums Chart and makes history in the process at the age of 81. The new album was written and recorded alongside Marty’s two daughters, Kim and Roxanne Wilde who both lend their vocal talents with additional input from son Ricky. The chart entry (Oct 9th, 2020)means that Marty’s hit-making talents have landed him success in the Official Chart Top 100 in every decade since the 1950s – as a credited performer in the 1950s, 60s, 90s, 00s, 10s, and 20s, scoring six Top 10 singles and 2 Top 20 albums in his own name. Plus, in the 1970s Marty also tasted chart success as a songwriter with hits he penned for Peter Shelley (Love Me, Love My Dog, No.3 in 1975) and in the 1980s for his daughter Kim Wilde, starting with 1981’s “Kids In America”, plus Hot Chocolate’s “You’ll Never Be So Wrong” in May 1981. The release and chart placement of Marty’s new material in this new decade arrives ahead of some of his other notable 1950s British pop peers who have also enjoyed long and successful chart careers, including Cliff Richard, Petula Clark, and Shirley Bassey.
