There’ll be a few Christmas songs what have managed this I’d think. Mariah must’ve done it a lot.

As for non Xmas tracks. 3 Lions come to mind and Bohemian Rhapsody.

There will be loads of singles that returned to the top 10 after someone died but these are two that spring to mind that were just normal re-releases:

Fleetwood Mac - Albatross (1968 and 1973)
Bobby Goldsboro - Honey (1968 and 1975)

I believe the record for most separate top 10 runs within a single chart run (so excluding Christmas songs re-entering over several years and 'Three Lions' etc.) is 4, which has been done at least three times - Adele's 'Make You Feel My Love' was I believe the first (having four separate one-week runs), and it's since also been done by Post Malone and Swae Lee's 'Sunflower' and most surprisingly Freya Ridings' 'Lost Without You' despite that never peaking higher than #9. May have been done again since then but those are the ones I remember.

Elton John's 'Something About... / Candle In The Wind 1997' did this too: 1-1-1-1-1-3-3-4-5-7-11-10-11-10-11-10-13-21-32-39...

Acker Bilk did it way back in 1961-2!

Running a quick program against my data:

8 - Pogues featuring Kirsty MacColl - "Fairytale of New York"
6 - Mariah Carey - "All I Want For Christmas Is You"
5 - Band Aid - "Do They Know It's Christmas?"
5 - Wham! - "Last Christmas"
4 - Baddiel, Skinner & Lightning Seeds - "Three Lions"
4 - Shakin' Stevens - "Merry Christmas Everyone"
plus the 5 songs mentioned above as doing it without a break.

Notes:
"Last Christmas" had one more top 10 run as a double A-side with "Everything She Wants"
"Three Lions" excludes the one run as "Three Lions 98"
Band Aid excludes versions by Band Aid II, 20 or 30 (all one run except for Band Aid 30 which had two runs.


"Bohemian Rhapsody" had just the one top 10 run in it's original form and one more as a Double A-Side with "These Are The Days Of Our Lives"

As usual, corrections and amendments welcome.

Frankie Goes To Hollywood's 'Relax' and 'The Power Of Love' have both had three top 10 runs, plus at least two covers of 'The Power Of Love' have reached the top 10.
