The 40 songs in the Top 40 for w/e 8/11/14 have a total of 481 previous weeks in the Top 40, with Idina Menzel's "Let It Go"'s re-entry adding a whole chunk of weeks. With so many long runners (11 of them with 18 or more previous weeks in the Top 40) it is no surprise that this sets a new record, and by quite a distance

481 w/e 8/11/14
412 w/e 5/5/12 & 1/11/14
403 w/e 3/3/12
399 w/e 4/1/14
397 w/e 25/2/12
396 w/e 12/1/08
395 w/e 28/7/12
392 w/e 7/1/12, w/e 6/9/14
385 w/e 9/1/10
381 w/e 14/1/12


As a contrast, the same week 10 years ago (i.e. w/e 6/11/04) had a grand total of 73 (!) previous weeks, and the following week shares the record for the lowest total from when the chart has been at least a top 40 - 62 previous weeks, no one record contributing more than 7 such weeks.

I was going to comment on the fact that this week's top 40 songs had an average chart run of 13 weeks (12 previous weeks plus this week) but didn't in the end. You've now done it for me biggrin.gif

The current Hot 100 top 40 have a combined total of 458 top 40 weeks (excluding the current ones). This is in a week with four songs entering the top 40 for the first time so I'm sure there must have been much worse weeks.

W/E 15/11/2014 - 424
W/E 22/11/2014 - 417
W/E 29/11/2014 - 369
W/E 06/12/2014 - 337
W/E 13/12/2014 - 452
W/E 20/12/2014 - 543
W/E 27/12/2014 - 535
W/E 03/01/2015 - 620
W/E 10/01/2015 - 637
W/E 17/01/2015 - 594
W/E 24/01/2015 - 586
W/E 31/01/2015 - 581
W/E 07/02/2015 - 486
W/E 14/02/2015 - 494
W/E 21/02/2015 - 478
W/E 28/02/2015 - 446
W/E 07/03/2015 - 517

47% of this week's 517 coming from Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and George Ezra.
