Updated - somehow, Perfect defied the midweek chart to notch another consecutive week in the Top 75, meaning it makes that top 10 outright, ousting Counting Stars.

Cheers for the comments. On the point about ACR, for sure without it SOY would have overtaken TOL to top most, if not all, of the lists in the first post - however the domination of songs from circa 2014 here (the early streaming era) goes some way to explaining why ACR was introduced in the first place.

Two older songs deserve a footnote - one made just one of these lists, the other didn't make any of them - I'll expand on this in the next update.

Updated - once again Perfect lives to fight another week in the Top 75, itís now joint 9th in that list.

I mentioned above that two songs deserve a footnote, these are:

(1) Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars: it was ineligible for the charts for 7 weeks in late 2006 as it had been physically deleted - such were the rules at the time, which were then scrapped, allowing it back in. Had it not been for those rules, it would have spent 112 consecutive weeks in the Top 100 (still a record by some distance) and 72 consecutive weeks in the Top 75 (currently placing it 3rd in that list). It would have also been the first song to claim 99 and 100 in the list in my second post in this thread.

(2) Frank Sinatra - My Way: we may never know how long some songs would have spent in the early charts had they been a full Top 100. However in My Wayís case, itís safe to assume it would have easily topped the most consecutive weeks in the Top 75 and Top 100 lists to this day, while also cleaning up most positions in my second post, had the charts been a Top 100 in the early 1970s. Its longest consecutive run in the chart, then a Top 50, was 42 weeks - yet in the space of its first 122 weeks it only spent 9 of these outside the Top 50, and no more than 3 of these in a row.

Updated - Perfect refuses to drop out of the Top 75 again, so it's now outright 9th on that list. If nothing else, it has raised the bar for This Is Me which would need another 13 weeks to emulate Someone Like You in 10th place.

Updated - Perfect has finally dropped out of the top 75 (most of Buzzjack rejoices). There can't be any further updates to these lists until March at the earliest, depending on how This Is Me (that other Buzzjack favourite) holds up in the next few months.

Updated - This Is Me has arrived rolleyes.gif more on that next week.

Had it not been for a single week in early December when it dipped to #41, Shotgun would now be spending its 40th consecutive week in the Top 40, something only 7 songs have done. Still I'd expect it to impact some of the other lists above in the coming months.

Updated - of the 62 weeks to date The Greatest Showman has been in the albums Top 5, this is the first where there have been less than 3 of its songs in the singles Top 100, but one thing that has remained constant is the highest placed of those songs - This Is Me. In those 62 weeks, it has yet to drop below its current position of #65, so that takes it to joint 9th on the most consecutive weeks in the Top 75 list, knocking Someone Like You out of that particular top 10.

Updated - its parent album's run in the Top 5 may be over, but This Is Me clings on in the Top 75 (just), taking its run to joint 6th on the all time list. Perfect drops to 10th and its stay may be brief as Shotgun has it in its sights.
