Here we go with the F's. Just over 400 artists, so split into 4 parts.

A reminder of the notes and conventions used in creating the data:

1. The first rule is that all rules have exceptions, common sense (and my own inconsistencies) may sometimes take precedence

2. Act names - I've tried to reflect the act names as given on the charts, occasionally this is different from that shown on the label or sleeve/cover. If the chart credit is undeniably wrong (e.g. "Elizabethan Reggae") then common sense has been used. An initial "The" from artists names has almost always been dropped, a separator of "And" is usually replaced with an ampersand.

3. Personal names - I have tried to show "real" names of performers where possible, middle names are not shown unless they have some relevance to the stage name (e.g. it would not make sense to show Rihanna's real name as just Robyn Fenty). Where the name an individual goes by is a standard short form of his/her given name (e.g. if someone known as Andy is really an Andrew), I normally haven't bothered showing this. Diactritics are shown where possible, but the software used in compiling the data has difficult with some non-ASCII characters, and the ý in Mýa. I have not shown aritst names in anything other than the Latin script, so for artists whose "real" names are written in Cyrillic, Burmese or Korean for instance, I have used the transliteration as normally shown on the charts. Artists from Northern Ireland are shown thus, rather than being from either the UK or Ireland which hopefully will reduce arguments!

4. Dates of birth/death - Shown where I have found these while checking out other details. Any additional information gladly received

5. Band membership - Normally relates to their hitmaking period only. Changes in personnel before or after this are very rarely shown. Members are normally shown in alphabetical order (but with some exceptions - e.g. Crosby, Stills & Nash are treated in that order) for either the debut hit or the main part of the groups career, with changes usually noted in chronological order

6. Featured artists - This got complex! Where a combination of lead/featured artist ONLY had hit(s) together (e.g. Gotye featuring Kimbra) they are only shown as effectively one act. Where the lead artist has had other hits but the featured one isn't, the lead artist only has a separate full entry. Where either the featured artist has other credits, or both do, both have individual entries. The same (more or less) works with normal duos - for instance Simon & Garfunkel's hits are listed under both Art Garfunkel's and Paul Simon's solo careers.
6a The OCC has sometimes changed the credit shown on the chart during a chart run. In such cases I have tried to use the most inclusive credit.

7. Where a record has been in the charts as both a "normal" A-side and a Double A-Side (whether in combination with a track by the same artist or a different artist), it is shown with separate lines (e.g. "Last Christmas" by Wham!)

8. When a record has re-entered the chart with a different artist credit, I have normally amassed the two together (e.g. "Woman In Chains"). Which artist credit I have used depends on the song itself, and a note is attached showing that an alternate credit exists.

9. Remixes/Re-Recordings/Live Versions used to be charted separately and are shown as different hits, but current practice is for all versions to be collected and charted together, so for any chart runs of such tracks since the advent of the download era are normally added to the original hit version

10. Labels and catalogue numbers are completely omitted

11. EP/LP tracks are shown where known when the chart entry was credited to an EP/LP. If an EP was released on two different CD singles, it is usually the tracks of CD1 that are listed

12. Most of the "bio" information comes straight from Wikipedia (to save time), so there is the likelihood that a number of the entries contain mistakes. Please let me know of any of these, or if there's anything that you think is significant enough to be mentioned. I have tried to keep opinions out of them, and kept references to genres to a minimum as those tend to cause more disagreements than almost anything else. Honours such as knighthoods, OBE's etc. are shown. Oscars, Grammys & Brits are a work in progress and will eventually all be shown, less high profile awards (e.g. MOBOs, Mercury Prize, etc.) are unlikely to be listed unless a particular artist has achieved something extraordinary.
12a Close family relationships between hitmakers are shown where possible, and also in some cases to other famous people (e.g. it made no sense to write even a sketchy bio for Jane Wyman and not mention she was married to Ronald Reagan)

13. Cross-references ("See also....") are a work in progress, as are the marking of US number ones. Expect these to get more comprehensive as the series goes on

14. Alphabetisation - aritsts whose name is an acronym (and is pronounced as such), e.g. ABC are sorted as if the name is a series of spaced letters (i.e. A B C). All such acts are listed at the start of those with that initial. Where an acronymic (?) name is usually voiced as a word (e.g. ABBA) then it is indexed under that word. Numbers are treated as if they are spelled out, punctuation is ignored. Individuals are indexed firstly under their surname then their given name(s). For some artists, it can be difficult to determine whether a name is a given name followed by a surname, or whether the whole thing is to be treated as one name. In these cases (most of which involve seem to involve rappers), I have tried to use the sorting sequence used for that artist within Wikipedia categories.

15. Where an artist has had hits under two (or more) different names, they are merged (e.g. Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus). With some combinations (usually European production outfits), it can sometimes be difficult to identity which pairings work under which names!

16. Nationalities - I've tried to use the nationalities where people grew up rather than the place they happened to be born. Where there is some difference of opinion I have usually come down on one side of the coin or the other. Large groups are given under the likely most-common nationality (e.g. the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is shown as Austrian, even if a number of them may not have been). Club football teams of the modern era are usually shown as "Mostly British". Anonymous cover version acts may be shown without nationality. Where a country has changed name since the person was born, I have no hard and fast rule about which name to use but hopefully this should be clear either way. Where I know a person has changed or taken on a second citizenship I have mentioned it

Index
A was split between two threads - A-Akon and Alabama 3-Azzido Da Bass
B - BB&Q-Bystanders
C - C & C Music Factory-Miley Cyrus
D - DB Boulevard-Dyverse
E - EAV-George Ezra

First part of the F's posted including Adam Faith (most weeks on chart of this batch), Faithless, Adam Faith, Fall Out Boy, Georgie Fame and Fatboy Slim (all over 100 weeks). Paloma Faith should reach that mark too, as should Fergie if she releases any new solo material.



There probably wont be a post next Monday, concentrating on this has meant I've got behind on my main website stuff, and with the FA Cup having started this weekend just gone, I need to spend any spare time this week on that. If I do get time, I will do an update next Monday, but don't count on it! Normal service will probably resume on 1st September.

Assorted corrections / comments (haven't done this for a while):

- 'Smash Sumthin'' by Redman feat. Adam F and Adam F feat. Redman are the same song AFAIA, just one was released to promote a Redman album and the other for a later Adam F album. I have credited both to Redman feat. Adam F in my spreadsheet but it's kind of hard to find information about any differences between the two.
- Fabolous' 'Baby' is capitalised for some reason.
- Donald Fagen, not 'Fagan'.
- Jad Fair's hit with Teenage Fanclub was 'Near To You'.
- Christian Falk died on 24th July of this year.
- Fall Out Boy's 'This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race' doesn't have a 'This' in the middle.
- Fergie's 2008 #56 hit is 'Labels Or Love' (I had made this exact mistake myself before, so I assume this must be a mistake with the OCC/Polyhex that I blindly copied).

Norman Cook was born Quentin Leo Cook. He changed his name to Norman Quentin Cook later. He was at school with my brother and the current head teacher of that school is Alvin Stardust's son!

Presumably not the same son who's Adam F though.

When The Sun Goes Down (2004 collaboration with DJ Fresh) is missing from Adam F's entry.

Faithless' 2005 hit was called Why Go?

Harold Faltermeyer's 2nd hit was Fletch Theme.

Fargetta was a member of The Tamperer.

Other than that, great stuff as usual!

Next part added. The usual mix - the urban 50 Cent, the urban-lite Flo-Rida, veterans Fleetwood Mac, boybands Five & Five Seconds Of Summer, the soulful Roberta Flack and the suave Bryan Ferry.

Not quite sure where A Flock of Seagulls would fit in, probably more remembered now for Mike Score's haircut than a string of excellent singles. Lupe Fiasco seemed like he was going to make it big here at one point but never did. Ella Fitzgerald's influence and career dwarf her comparitively small presence on the singles chart over the years (i guess the same can be said for Gracie Fields.

Finally, the criminally underachieving Fischer-Z deserved far more than a token two Top 75 hits.

The usual thanks for all the corrections/updates above. It is a pleasant change on the internet to have a forum where people point out things that I've got wrong in a constructive manner rather than a dismissive or insulting manner. Having said that, this week again has seen me concentrating on football data rather than music data so please fire away with the replies and I'll include them all in next week's offering!

I've commented in the Chart Mods Lounge on how well this project is going. This is how crowd sourcing should work. Congratulations to you and to the Buzzjack membership!

A few additions:

Fine Young Cannibals should have a link to Two Men A Drum Machine And A Trumpet.

Nasir Jones and Inga Marchand of Firm are Nas and Foxy Brown.

Reginald Penxten of Flesh & Bones also charted as part of Milk Inc.

Flipmode Squad were credited on Busta Rhymes & Mariah Carey's hit I Know What You Want.

Great stuff as usual, though!

I see for Roberta Flack you have "Killing Me Softly"...that was how the Fugees titled their version whereas Roberta's should be "Killing Me Softly With His Song".

Next part added. Not a stellar selection to be honest (in comparitive terms at least).

The Four Tops have the most weeks on chart of this batch, Connie Francis the second and only Florence & The Machine, Four Seasons & Foo Fighters have over 100 weeks on chart.

Tennessee Ernie Ford had a short but impressive chart career, Foreigner seemed to be around for ages, and the Flying Pickets' accappella hits were a short term phase. Samantha Fox is best known for her other assets, Peter Frampton was more successful in the US than here, and George Formby's success mostly pre-dated the chart era.

Finally a shout out for Julia Fordham whose talent deserved more than just two Top 40 hits among her discography.



Note - most of the above corrections have been made, but Flipmode Squad don't seem to have been listed on the charts as printed at the time, and aren't shown in the OCC archive as being featured on that track. Still, I've made a note so that when that record comes up again (either in a re-post of the Mariah Carey section or when we get to Busta Rhymes, it will be shown as an alternative credit)

Matt Schwartz of 4Tune500 is from Israel.

Mick Jones of Foreigner is British (hence the band's name).

Male is misspelt in the Four Pennies entry.

Maria Rubia is misspelt in Fragma's entry.

Other than that, great stuff!

Part 31 added, that brings us to the end of the F's and approximately one-third of the way through the project.

Only four long runners this time around - Billy Fury & Aretha Franklin of the oldies, Frankie Goes To Hollywood from the 80s and Nelly Furtado of more recent vintage.

Fuse ODG of today's crop is included, as are the likes of Fun, Frankee and the Fugees who all reached number one.

Frida is also here, but of course is better known elsewhere.



Now here is where I am asking for a little bit of help to finish of the G's ready to start posting them next week.



1) Gene Loves Jezebel - I've been having trouble working out what their line up was during their 1996-97 hitmaking period. Can anyone clarify please?


2) Grange Hill Cast - I've just got them listed as "British male/female actor/vocal group, from the BBC TV show "Grange Hill"", but I'd like to name those actors who did the vocals on "Just Say No". I know there may well be several, but does anyone know which ones they were please?

I know the rap on 'Just Say No' was by Mmoloki Chrystie, because my Dad had an autographed copy of the single and he was specifically credited for that. I can't remember whether all the other cast were listed on the sleeve.
Anyone want to try and recognise them from the video?

Kate Holmes of Frazier Chorus also had hits with Technique and Client.

David Oliver of Freefaller was also in Point Break.

Nicki French - Total Eclipse Of The Heart peaked in 1995.

Great stuff as usual, though! (sorry I couldn't be any help on the G questions)

Aha, I've found an image of the Grange Hill single cover on Discogs and it does have a list of "actors" on the back (I guess they weren't brave enough to call them singers). Hilariously, the first on the list is John Alford:

(I've also corrected the spelling of Mmoloki Chrystie's name in both my posts).
