  1. I'm going to have to go back through the old threads to edit them and make them vaguely readable at some point!

  3. Fantastic stuff, it's just like the Guinness Book Of Hit Singles! Hope these get updated every once in a while.

  4. That's the idea!

    I hadn't realised quite how many weeks Talking Heads had racked up!

    Donna Summer's lead is quite impressive when you realise she hasn't been on the retrochart top 100 at all for almost 6 months now.

  5. That was the first thing which really struck me too. Who knew, etc.

  6. All I know from my own stats is that my Adam Ant stanning is as ridiculous as it should be, given how I loved those records in 1981. 15 weeks at #1 in all, and that's just in 1981....with one more single to go!

  8. Now we are almost 3 years in, I'm going to start adding chart histories for some of the acts racking up hits. I'll re-edit as time goes by. Although he's been a bit patchy so far, as he is currently number one, we'll start with macca!
