When I started this, I assumed the "J" Section would be one of the bigger ones, but that has turned out not to be the case, with less then 300 artists splits into 3 weekly posts

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 artist 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 - artists 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

C - C & C Music Factory-Miley Cyrus

Welcome to the "J" thread.

Phrases like "All time Legend" and "All time great" are sometimes overused to the point where they are so watered down they make little sense. One of the artists in this batch certainly qualifies though - Michael Jackson. Very few acts since the inception of the charts have had so many hits, so many weeks on chart (both in singles and albums) and as much influence on the development of music in the industry and on the public as a whole.

Second on "weeks on chart" in this batch is his sister Janet, who has had a very good career without ever being considered on a par with her big brother and may unfortunately eventually be more remembered for her "wardrobe malfunction" than her music.

The family group (originally the Jackson 5, later the Jacksons) add another large batch of hits including a number one, while the guy who left in between the Jackson 5 becoming the Jacksons, Jermaine, clocking in with a few of his own.

Outside those originating from Gary, Indiana, Jessie J has turned into a real Marmite act, The Jam were the biggest act around in their heyday, Jamiroquai went with the trends for a decade or so putting together a nice discography, and JLS were perhaps the first of the current crop of reality-TV created boy bands that pumped out a quick succession of records virtually indistinguishable from each other.

Another X-Factor alumnus, Leon Jackson, also appears in this group but with only two hit singles he is lost within the general mass of Jacksons.

Ja Rule appeared on a number one but was never as big of a star in the UK as the US, Jamelia came and went, on and off, for a little while before making for TV, both James & Japan were favourites of the music press, Mick Jagger is better known as a member of the Stones than his solo work, and Jean Michel Jarre has performed numerous live shows on a truly vast scale.

The 2012 re-entry of The Jam's 'Town Called Malice' has been listed as a separate entry. I'm assuming this is because the original release was listed as a double A-Side but I don't know if this is a rule you've used throughout or just an error so I thought I'd point it out anyway.

David James' hit should be '(Always) A Permanent State'. A couple of other very minor title corrections, Jack Ü's hit should be 'Take Ü There' (it looks a little odd using the 'Ü' for the artist but not the track) and Jermain Jackman's hit was 'And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going' without the first contraction of 'I Am'. 'British' (or is it 'Irish'?) is also typoed as 'Iritish' in the JJ72 biog.

Great stuff as always.

Great work.
Some extra information for the JALN Band. JALN stands for Just Another Lonely Night. They were the brain child of Pete Waterman.

All done, thanks for picking these up.

After last week's batch featured Michael Jackson, two more of the mega-big names from UK Singles chart history appear in this little lot.

Reg Dwight, or Elton John has racked up over 600 weeks on the chart, while Shawn Carter, or Jay-Z is now over the 500 mark.

Elton was famously one of the most successful singles acts without a solo number one for some time, but has since put that right and counting time with various collaborations has 23 weeks at the summit.

Jay-Z has 15 weeks at the top split across 4 records, but the bulk of them come of course from "Umbrella"

Who else is here? Billy Joel has next most weeks on chart, followed by Johnny & The Hurricanes whose last hit was before I was born, let alone most of you readers!

Carly Rae Jepsen shone for a few months, Jive Bunny irritated most of us for a couple of years, Jethro Tull have been around forever and the Jesus & Mary Chain's innovative early singles led them to develop a fan base which kept them going for over a decade

The only other Number One act here is Holly Johnson, whose solo work never got anywhere the brilliance of Frankie Goes To Hollywood, while Jeremih's presence in this batch brings the group bang up to date

'name' is misspelt in Jacksons' biog.
Jam & Spoon should have a cross-reference to Storm.
Joni James' real name is Giovanna Babbo.
Ryuichi Sakamoto's name is misspelt in Japan's biog.
Javine was born 27/12/81.
Oris Jay appears to be from the UK.
Jazzy Jeff's biog should mention the hits that he had with The Fresh Prince (a.k.a. Will Smith).
Jimmy Eat World's 3rd hit was Sweetness, not Sweatness.
Jive Bunny & The Mastermixers' biog should contain a reference to Les Hemstock's hit with Paul Van Dyk (Nothing But You).
Elton John's 2009 hit was Tiny Dancer (Hold Me Closer).
Marv Johnson's 4th hit was I'll Pick A Rose For My Rose.

Other than that, great stuff as usual!

We come to the end of the J's and as per the first two, we have a legend included in this batch.

Sir Tom Jones is the legend in question. Still a major name after 50 years in the business, and a 40-year spread of Number Ones puts him in a very small club indeed.

It's a big drop off then to 80s man Howard Jones, the 70s king of double entendres Judge Dread and the group who've got "Glee" to thank for most of their UK sales, Journey.

If you're keeping up with the Joneses, we have a number one from Jimmy, the bizarre-ness ofo Grace, the schoolboy chorister Aled and producer extraordinaire Quincy.

Three other acts from this group topped the charts and they can't be much more different - The Johnston Brothers, The Justice Collective and Junkie XL.

Couple more comments:

> The Juanes hit should be 'La Camisa Negra'.
> Quincy Jones' last hit seems to be missing its title.
> 'Little Drummer Boy / Peace On Earth' is missing from Aled Jones' hit list - I presume you have credited it to 'Bandaged' instead of Terry & Aled? If so it should possibly still be mentioned in the biography bit.

Also, the last Junior Jack hit was called 'Dare Me (Stupidisco)' and was a remake of the previous hit - I seem to recall having some difficulty finding out if it was actually a different recording but I think it did have a new vocal (I had similar issues with Armand Van Helden's 'Why Why Why' which had Tara McDonald as a featured vocalist on its second chart entry, which is unrelated to this part of the thread tongue.gif)

Bruce Johnston didn't sing on Pipeline so the singer / songwriter description doesn't really apply to his solo singles career.

Spotted a spelling mistake on the 94 hit of Grace Jones - Slave not Slade.

Query on two possible missing acts? 1: JUSTIFIED ANCIENTS OF MU MU
2 Catherine Zeta JONES.
Of course "Zeta" might be part of her surname, but I think it sounds more like a Christian name than Surname, though I could be wrong.

He didn't write it either, in fact. But I suppose singer/songwriter is what he usually did, his hit was just a fluke.

Grace Jones is generally considered Jamaican.
Jungle Brother's note should mention that it peaked in 1998.
Junior Jack's Thrill Me has incorrect capitalisation.

Great stuff as usual, though!

I think I've taken on board all the above, with two exceptions

1) Jungle Brothers - I need to make a change to the program to get the note on this one to read correctly, and haven't had time to do this yet. It will be sorted over the Christmas break

2) Catherine Zeta-Jones (or Zeta Jones) - Graham, Zeta was her original middle name and Jones her surname, but professionally she is known with the surname Zeta-Jones, hyphenated, so she is in the Zs and not the Js.
