It happens a lot less now though because of OAOS, a lot of the examples above are by songs that reached the top because of held back releases which jumped in at the top. Although of course there's loads of tracks that were held back and just were unlucky at time of release!

Love the Way You Lie and everything that kept it off the top. The only song to never reach number 1 and still be the biggest track of the year.

Groove Is In The Heart vs The Joker in 1990 - I would guess that Groove Is In The Heart has sold more in the long run in the UK.

Your signature reminds me, Jester, has Feel Good Inc sold more in the long run than Akon's Lonely?

Has Foundations outsold The Way I Are? That was the most razor-thin of chart battles

In 1996, Robert Miles 'Children' did more than both 'Don't Look Back In Anger' by Oasis and 'How Deep Is Your Love' by Take That. Oasis may well have caught up since. Also in 2000, Baha Men stalled at 2 twice, behind both Steps and estlife, but ended up as the 4th best seller of the year!
