Last month, Glass Animals became the first British group to topSpotify’s global songs chart with the song , garnering 4.26 million plays per day on the streaming platform. Some of the song’s success stemmed from being used in a recentTikToktrend. Mercifully, the rules were quickly changed to stop such a monopoly from happening again, and today no artist can have more than three songs from one album in the charts. But the charts were forever changed – the same as always yet fundamentally altered.
Either way, if you decide to answer, thank you very much for your time. And, once again, this isn’t meant in any way as a derrogation, rather just me wanting to clarify stuff up for myself. A US music historian called Joel Whitburn has used the information from the irregular charts, the Billboard magazine contents and other sources to retrospectively calculate the charts from https://www.wikipedia.org/ 1890 to 1958. This is published as a spreadsheet by a guy calling himself “Bullfrog” . The other site you mention has to be rejected for two reasons, firstly because it is a single critics list . But more importantly we already have far too much chart data from the UK, for some reason the people of Britain are more prolific than any others in sharing their musical knowledge .
Our position is that a link on each artist’s Wikipedia discography page to the matching page here would be helpful to most Wikipedia users. Of course Wikipedia’s “Conflict https://www.cdoass.com/ of Interests” rules mean that we wouldn’t add such links ourselves. There is always a delay between the end of a year and when we can start collecting the data for it.
Woody Herman has his own page (you can get to it by clicking on his name, via the “Song Artists” list, the alphabetical list of artists or the site index). Hello, great site, currently used some of the chart info for wikipedia however some other contributors believe this site is not a valid source of chart positions. Any way I can prove this site is valid, what sources does this site use? I am seeking some information about a song I think was titled “Wheels”. The lyrics are “Wheels you’re the ruin of me, you drove me to the end of the line. Wheels, I lost the girl that loved me, you took me for a ride the very last time”. We have 22 Little River Band songs listed in the complete dataset, they still don’t make the top 1000 .
We modified the scoring system to overcome some issues with having too many charts from smaller countries. However, I can’t seem to find this song on your site, or in the csv data file I got from you. My main interest is in cultural variations, juxtaposed against the big picture. As such, I’m probably in the minority here, but I’d also love to see a sort option that would allow you to select a country or region and see a list of songs that only charted in their part of the world in a given year. You might like to look at the FAQ question “Can the charts here tell us anything about long term trends”, as well as some of the anlalysis on the “Sales over time” section of the “albums sales” page. According to the R.I.A.A., the governing body that certifies Gold, Platinum, and Multi-Platinum Record Sales, the Leading all time Artist in Record Sales is ELVIS PRESLEY. Elvis is the leading sales artist for both Solo Artist or Group.
To be honest we wouldn’t have complete faith in our own listings for any period less than 5 years old, the data is too recent for our data analysis approach. We’ve added the charts, but made it so they don’t contribute to the overall score . We have added this chart as a contributor to the details, so users can see what this critic’s view of each album was, however we’ve ensured that this does not affect the overall score. The “Village Voice” critics seem to be typical of attempts to identify “the best” music, rather than “successful” music. Now we have no issue with that approach but this site attempts to focus on music that was, and continues to be successful, rather than telling users which music they “should” be listening to.
