apparently 'Burn' re-entered the chart at #1, must've charted in the top 200 on leaked copies at some point.

'Burn' was #98 on imports before climbing to #1. It was also #197 before that week too.

197-98-1-1-3-5-7-11-18-22-26-39-47-57

Ah that sums it up smile.gif so those must be top 100 weeks listed then. I remember it happened every now and then with releases back then.

Burn's full chart run:

[20/06/2004] 197-out ChartsPlus: "Import sales and leaks. This entry has the same catalogue number as the full release in two weeks."
[27/06/2004] 98-out ChartsPlus: "2nd Import."
[04/07/2004] 01-01-03-05-07-11-18-22-26-39-47-57-out (for 10 weeks)
[05/12/2004] 172-145-168-154-132-172-out (for 1 week)
[23/01/2005] 161-184-198-out (for 10 weeks)
[24/04/2005] 217-out (for 1 week)
[08/05/2005] 224-229-250-235-out (for 1 week)
[12/06/2005] 238-241-out

Quite surprised that Burn has had no chart action since 2005!

I really dislike the old rule that lead to singles being removed from the chart (i.e. Burn going 57-out)*. It'd have been more interesting to look back on these charts if they'd truly been the 200 best selling songs. Only the 1-75 area could be considered as the best selling songs in order.

* "A single which, in the normal course of events, would appear between positions 76 and 200 of the combined Singles Chart is excluded if its sales have fallen for two or more consecutive weeks AND have fallen by more than 20% in the past week. Once excluded in this way, a record will only re-appear in the chart if its sales increase. Records excluded by this rule are shown on the printed chart report with their sales index and asterisks (***) in place of a chart position." (from zobbel.de)

The midweeks were a bit thin on the ground back then... this was the midweeks from Music Week from Tuesday 13 July 2004. Notice the lack of sales information...

Shapeshifters and Morrissey battle for number one

July 13th 2004 at 10:58AM

Positiva look set to score their first number one since last year's Room 5 single Make Luv, with Shapeshifter's Lola's Theme selling outselling Morrissey's First Of The Gang To Die (Attack/Sanctuary) by more than two copies to one, early retail reports suggest.

Morrissey's likely top three chart position, which follows the top three placing of comeback single Irish Blood, English Heart, continues the former Smiths frontman's most successful chart run in his 21-year recording career.

Rachel Stevens is looking to experience a similar commercial rejuvenation, with her Sports Relief-backed single Some Girls (Universal) also vying for a top three placing.

Jamelia (Parlophone), J-Kwon (LaFace) and Flip & Fill feat. Karen Parry (AATW) are also set to enter the chart's upper echelons, while Marillion are looking good for a second consecutive top 20 hit with Don't Hurt Yourself (Intact).

In a seasonably slow album chart, the sole changes of note are likely to be trading of positions one and two, between Scissor Sisters (Polydor) and McFly (Universal).

Damien Rice's O (DRM/14th Floor) is set to rise into the top ten for the first time in its 38-week chart spell, thanks largely to a rousing Glastonbury appearance and the success of the reissued single Cannonball.

=================================================

And the sales at the end of the week were:

SINGLES

51967 Shapeshifters
43000 Rachel Stevens
20000 Usher
19000 J-Kwon
18300 Jamelia
16800 Morrissey

9600 Flip & Fill (11)
4949 Snow Patrol (23)
2600 Nelly Furtado (40)
1300 Magnolia (55)

ALBUMS

45000 Scissor Sisters
41000 Streets
35000 McFly

17345 Will Young (7)
15555 Eva Cassidy (11)

COMPILATIONS

62310 Clubland 5

They were just as thin on the ground too...

The number 1 Download in what were still then the unofficial and which were test charts by the OCC was 'Dry Your Eyes' by Streets. There was still another 7 weeks to go before the Download charts became official and nearly 9 months before download sales were incorporated into the main Official Singles chart.

I saw a lot of people on Twitter doing jokes about that Usher song the other day because there was a story he'd given somebody an STD.

The right song definitely got the number 1 that week imo! Its success led to a retro influenced house revival in the mid 00s and quite a few other dance tracks making the charts with violins in them. dance.gif

One of the cheesiest songs ever to make the charts making number 11 that week! laugh.gif

QUOTE
Two years is a long time in pop music, but for five young ladies it was more like a lifetime. Since bursting into the Official Singles Chart with Wannabe in July 1996, Victoria Adams, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Geri Halliwell had enjoyed an impressive run of six Number 1 singles. (Only Stop had stalled at Number 2, beaten to the top of the charts by the monster smash It’s Like That, by Run-DMC & Jason Nevins.)

By May 1998, however, the dream seemed to be over. Ginger Spice had waved goodbye to Sporty, Scary, Baby and Posh – and she wasn’t coming back. Would this be the big finale for Britain’s craziest pop phenomenon since the Beatles? Did friendship really never end? Well, it seems that there was still one last hurrah to come as a fivesome – a little bit of unfinished business – and that was Viva Forever. And what a way to go.

Arguably their strongest ballad, Viva Forever - released 19 years ago this week - was the last spin-off from their million-selling second album Spiceworld. The girls had been so busy travelling the world promoting the album, they’d elected to have an animated video for the song – which turned out to be a pretty good idea given that Geri had left the building by the time the track was released.

Featuring the five girls as cheeky little fairies and dressed in their most iconic looks, the song’s nostalgic musings on friendship and love seemed like the perfect ending to a short but insanely intense career for the Spice Girls. Looking back, we can’t believe we didn’t see it coming. Looks like Geri was one step ahead of us all.

The dreamy number seemed to to sum up the mood of every pop fan as we collectively breathed out after a chaotic two years of Spice domination. Although the album had been available for some time by its release, the UK still flocked to the shops to buy Viva Forever – it’s sold over 690,000 copies and been streamed 1.8m times since records began in 2014.

The track logged two weeks at Number 1, shifting 278,000 copies in its opening week and holding off a new entry from Will Smith - his cover of Just The Two Of Us landed at Number 2.

Post-Viva Forever, the Spice Girls soldiered on, scoring two more Number 1 hits with Goodbye and Holler/Let Love Lead The Way. But it seemed some of the magic was missing once the spice rack lost its most outspoken and cheeky jar, and the band drifted off into a near-permanent hiatus, with the ladies concentrating on solo projects instead.

Elsewhere on the Official Singles Chart this week in 1998, Norwegian-Danish group Aqua were a new entry at Number 6 with My Oh My, the fourth single from their debut album Aquarium, and Welsh rockers Catatonia just missed out on a Top 10 with Strange Glue, landing at 11.


Viva Forever total sales stand at 708k (including 18k streaming equivalent sales).

I'd forgotten that 'You're The One That I Want' had been re-issued in 1998, 20 years after it was at number 1 in the charts. Back this week in 1978 the single had just passed a million sales - having been awarded a Platinum certification the previous week (which back then was for a million sales rather than 600,000) - with its weekly sales still well over 100,000 (with sales of 130,000 according to the sales figures in Record Business, the then alternative industry chart to the BBC / Music Week chart) as it continued its lengthy run at number 1. During its 9 week run at the top in 1978 it wouldn't have entered ACR and would only have done so the week it had fallen from the top, had ACR been applied to record sales back then (as there was no streaming, of course!)

What an astonishing #1 there in the form of 'Viva Forever' wub.gif easily my favourite Spice Girls song and in my all-time favourite top 10. It is such a haunting and beautiful moment from the girls that will never cease feeling really special. It was actually the song at #1 the day my brother was born, eternally jealous kink.gif

Another new entry that stands out there is Lovestation's 'Teardrops'! I have been familiar with the Womack & Womack version for years (Singstar R&B classic!!) but only discovered this version on Kisstory a couple of years ago, good song.

Nah, this is wrong, Viva Forever was never 19 years ago! This is a dream!

But seriously LOVE that chart! I remember listening to this one so clearly back when I was 9. This was during the time I became obsessed with the charts. I tuned in to see who would win between Spice Girls and Aqua-little did I know there was no contest!

I remember that Harvey Danger song looked like being a huge hit at one time but didn't make it. I liked it then, suspect I would be less keen now.

I guess FAB! were officially the least successful Lynch family act, behind Boyzone, B*Witched and Buffalo G.

Oh, in case anyone was wondering the lead track on Eight EP by Mansun was 'Legacy'.

Well this chart is all kinds of amazing, much like all of 1998. The Catatonia and Charli Baltimore songs are the only ones in the top 20 that I don't still listen to today! Viva Forever and Life Is A Flower are routinely amongst my most played songs of every year.

2006: Scissor Sisters' first UK #1

sales summary: 'I Don't Feel Like Dancin' has 702k combined units to date, 625k from sales.

QUOTE
The pressure was on for Scissor Sisters' second album. Their self-titled debut from 2004 was a slow burner that became a surprise hit and finished as the UK's biggest album of that year, with 1.6 million copies sold. So, how were they going to follow it up?

The band's answer was I Don't Feel Like Dancin', a song that dialled up the camp and cartoonish of their debut up to 100. Don't feel like dancin', dancin', even if I find nothin' better to do" they sing over the stuffed-to-the-brim chorus that sounds part Bee Gees era disco, part line-dancing anthem. And if that wasn't enough, the song was co-written by Elton John, who also provides the piano.

The result was their first Number 1 on the Official UK Singles Chart 11 years ago this week, shifting 67,000 copies that week. It wasn't an instant hit though; debuting at Number 4 on its first week before knocking Justin Timberlake's Sexyback to take the top spot the following week.

It spent four weeks at the summit, holding off competition from The Killers' When You Were Young and Fergie's London Bridge before eventually being knocked off by Razorlight's America. To date, I Don't Feel Like Dancin' has sold 625,000 copies in the UK and notched up 7.7 million plays on streaming services. And it still gets some love 11 years on: last week it was downloaded 64 time and racked up just over 81,000 plays in the UK.

The track helped send their second album, Ta-Dah to Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart, but Dancin' was to be the biggest spin-off from the collection - follow up Land Of A Thousand Words reached Number 19, while She's My Man topped out at 29.

Elsewhere on the Official Singles Chart that week, Robbie Williams landed his 24th solo Top 10 with Rudebox at 4, and Fame Academy finalist Lemar reached Number 7 with It's Not That Easy.

Further down, Jamelia debuted at 28 with Something About You, a song that would go on to peak at 9, and funky-house number Lucy by dance outfit Jealousy was new at at 30, and New York band The Rapture landed their biggest UK hit with Get Myself Into It at 36.

1983: Culture Club at #1

QUOTE
It is a time of eyeliner, layer upon layer of lippy and long lustrous hair – and that's just the boys. The year is 1983 and while pretty much everyone on Top of The Pops looked like they’d been covered in superglue and rolled around a charity shop floor, there was one shimmering beacon of style who outdid all the rest. Boy George, with his expertly made-up pretty, ragged dreadlocks and shabby chic style made sure all eyes were on him.

But it wasn’t a case of style over substance for Boy George and his band Culture Club – they had the toe-tapping tunes to match that eye-popping look. They’d already made headlines when their debut hit Do You Really Want To Hurt Me peaked at the top spot in September 1982, and enjoyed success with their first album Kissing To Be Clever, but it was Karma Chameleon that would cement their place in pop history.


Full article linked above.

It was revealed recently that 'Karma Chameleon's total sales stand at 1,623,347 - made of 1,528,498 single sales and 94,849 SES. The article also reveals the song sold 955k in 1983 alone.

2002: P!nk's first solo #1 - 'Just Like A Pill'

QUOTE
Many successful popstars credit reinvention as a key to their longevity. For P!nk though, the change from slick R&B star to growly pop-rock singer was more a necessity than a gimmick, unshackling herself from a persona she since said she felt uncomfortable with and took more creative control.

While on the surface the change didn’t seem radical – just a short trip to the hair salon and a quick wardrobe clear-out, really – the switch in musical style and attitude was huge.

By 2002, gone were the early R&B vibes of her debut album Take Me Home, released two years earlier. And while she kept her trademark sass, there was more of a bite to P!nk than there’d ever been before. By the time Just Like A Pill was released – the third single from her second record Missundaztood - Pink was already in the enviable position of having her first six singles all go Top 10.

The first clue Pink was changing her outlook came with album leader Get The Party Started, before Don’t Let Me Get Me came along and confirmed this was a new Pink. Just Like A Pill, however, hammered the point home.

Pink was angry, she was fed up and she was going to tell the world. The formula worked – it scored Pink her first solo Number 1 (she’d featured on the chart-topping Moulin Rouge version of Lady Marmalade the previous year). Just Like A Pill spent a week at Number 1 15 years ago this week in and to date has notched up combined sales of 452,000, split between 200,000 physical sales, 181,000 downloads and 7.2 million streams.

Just Like A Pill propelled sales of Missundaztood in the UK and it went on to become the second biggest selling album in the UK that year. To date, its combined sales stand at 1.83 million. The single ranks as her sixth biggest overall, just behind her 2012 single Try. Check out P!nk's Official Top 20 biggest singles here.

Elsewhere in the Top 40 that week in 2002, P!nk had knocked Atomic Kitten’s The Tide Is High (Get The Feeling) down to 2 after a three-week stint at the top, and pop-rock trio Busted arrived on the scene with their debut single What I Go To School For, landing at Number 3.

The Top 10 also featured new entries from Eminem at 4 with Cleanin’ Out My Closet, Bon Jovi at 5 with Everyday (their 15th Top 10), British musician Aqualung at 7 with Strange And Beautiful, and Beenie Man at 9 with his Janet Jackson collaboration Feel It Boy.
