Update for week ending 6 August:

Well Taylor would have had around 12 in the Top 50 with a level playing field, but only 1 in the Top 10, so the ACR rules helped her while the 3 artist cap stopped her dominating.

I’m still not convinced the artist cap is really necessary. The odd mid table hit peaking this week (possibly Little Mix) would have peaked lower without it but it’s mainly old songs on their way down that benefit from it.

That would have seen Blinding Lights end a run of 27 consecutive weeks in the Top 5 - a week short of the all-time record (Frankie Laine - I Believe). Nothing has come close to that officially, and even in this ACR-free chart I think Someone You Loved would be next nearest with 22 in a row.

I'm not keen on the 3-track rule either, but I suppose the OCC had to do something after the Divide and More Life releases in 2017 meant Ed Sheeran and Drake tracks took up 23 places in the Top 40 one week.

Interesting - I estimated 29 weeks Top 5 in total for Dance Monkey but knocked out at Christmas of course.

I think this is a brilliant topic. I think ACR has ruined the charts in my opinion.

Thanks! I wish I could see the real chart without ACR but my estimated one will have to do.

Update for week ending 13 August:

Lots of climbers due to the Taylor exodus.
Billie Eilish made the official Top 10 but I reckon there would have been no fewer than 5 ACR songs ahead.
Khaled and Brown wouldn’t be Top 10 yet either.
Harry would have made a new peak but still not Top 5.
I think Breaking Me would be matching its peak from June, which suggests its consignment to ACR was somewhat premature.
