Chart Hits Now All About That Bass Plus 11 More Top Hits

And finally, following their success on the Official Albums Chart this week with Disrespectful, Bradford’s Bad Boy Chiller Crew crack the Top 40 with BMW , their second Top 40 hit. Encanto fever continues as We Don’t Talk About Bruno settles in for a sixth week at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart, racking up over 7.8 million UK streams over the past seven days. Glass Animals have broken a US chart record, with their song ‘Heat Waves’ topping the Billboard Hot 100 after the longest ascent in history. Atop the Official Trending Chart are LadBaby, Elton John and Ed Sheeran with ‘Sausage Rolls For Everyone’. In the midweeks, that track was ahead of the song it is parodying – ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ by Elton John and Ed Sheeran. Does this latest stat revelation mean that it is still on course to be number one in the Official Singles Chart on Friday?

Michael Jackson made the top 20, placing number 16 on the list of all time Record Sales. His Album Thriller is the Biggest Selling Album of all time with over 50 Million Copies Sold. Michael’s personal sales as a Solo Artist, along with the Jackson 5, has sold a total of 185 Million Records worldwide. According to the R.I.A.A., with help from EMI, the Beatles place number 2 on the list of All Time Record Sellers with nearly 1.6 Billion Records sold worldwide.

If it’s because they weren’t popular outside the rural American market, wouldn’t that be true in similar extent of his albums as well? There are two reasons why the total scores for songs, albums and artists can be inconsistent with the sum of their parts. The main one is because of the way scores get assigned to contributing artists. Suppose for example we consider the song “Blurred Lines” byRobin Thicke, T.I. & Pharrell Williams, on its own this gets a score of something like 16,500, so the artist responsible gets assigned that score.

Also the CSV file (available from the “Versions” page) could provide some evidence to support whatever argument you might want to put forward. Personally I wouldn’t like to have to single out any one decade as being “the most remarkable”, I can think of good arguments to pick any of them. We suspect that any such efforts are doomed to failure because there is a lack of agreement about the genres that exist. The software that does the calculation takes a number of steps to ensure a lack of bias for the top positions and these complicate the lower ones. There has not been a major update in the last 3 months because we all have been busy with other stuff. Our calculation is that if Madonna continues to be successful for another decade or so she would join that elite list.

PS – We’ve looked at , it has a number of lists, like “Top 200 Songs of the 1960s”, but they all seem to be selected by a group of critics, and selected recently. Would you label yourself as the most concise chart site/archive on the net? Also wondering if you continue to add charts for the more recent years as you go along/they be come available (and around when do you think viewers could expect an accurate representation of the last few years, etc.).

The ‘Sk8er Boi’ legend has even teamed up with artists such as Machine Gun Kelly and blink-182’s Mark Hoppus on some of the new tracks. This week you’ve seen Witch Fever as our cover stars, announcing their new album. And you’ll have seen them at some shoebox called Stadium MK opening for My Chemical Romance. Afrobeats legend Fireboy DML and Ed Sheeran once again re-peak at Number 2 with Peru, but the boys will have to put in a lot of work to de-roost Bruno from the top spot. Rising teen pop star Mimi Webb, scorches into the Top 10 with House On Fire – this week’s highest new entry at Number 6, and a personal best for Mimi on the Official Chart, her previous highest peak was Number 8 for Good Without.

The site also supplies answers to the questions of who were the world’s greatestsong andalbum chart acts of all time, some informed guesses about the 300 biggest sellingalbums of all time and a whole host of other analysis. After that it declined and has gotten worse and worse every decade. There were many great artists in the 40s, 50s, early/mid 60s, and the few in the 70s werent didn’t have a place in the mainstream or commercial viability. +Im particularly pertaining to artists in these lists that were significant for whichever year, decade etc. And based off everything I’ve seen and been told its seems to me that the Beatles were the most over-rated, hyped up media affair. Im not undermining the good music they made but it boggles my mind how they were at the top of everything when they were in no way as great as they were perceived historically.
