Halfway through the project, we come to the L list, which is going to need 5 weekly parts to complete.

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

Welcome to the L thread and the first of 5 batches of artists filed under that letter.

Pride of place in this section goes to Frankie Laine, who of course still holds the record for most weeks at number one with a single release, "Answer Me"' racking up 18 non-consecutive weeks at the top. His other three number ones added another 14 weeks giving him a very impressive 32 weeks at the summit which is still among the most ever lists.

Lady Gaga (who could easily have been filed under G now that I come to think about it) has some very impressive figures of her own - all four of her number ones have spent 40 or more weeks in the Top 75 and she has 10 weeks in total at Number One.

LMFAO have somehow amassed 157 weeks on the chart (mainly thanks to the annoying "Party Rock Anthem" and the even more annoying "Sexy And I Know It"). Talking of annoying, Las Ketchup are in this group too.

Labrinth has more top 5 hits than I would have thought (five, the same as Avril Lavigne) while Cyndi Lauper has two plus a re-working of the first one to pick up a third.

Who else made Number One? LL Cool J (ten years after his debut hit), La Roux (that seems a long five and a half years ago now), LMC (who barely troubled the charts afterwards) & LV (on the back of Coolio).

Ladytron were very unfortunate not to have a Top 40 hit - four times they stalled in the 42-45 range. Cleo Laine was a big name in jazz circles for decades, Greg Lake's work with ELP eclipsed his official solo work (and it is surprising that his Christmas classic never seems to get much of a boost each year) and Danny La Rue was much more famous for his TV work than his hit single.

La Roux are no longer a duo as of their second album, it is just Elly Jackson's stage name now.

I thought that as well. However, according to Wiki (and when was that ever wrong), Langmaid helped to write the album. It isn't totally clear whether he performed on it,

My observations.

At the risk of being called a pedant, the Aguilera version of Do What U Want is an alternative version, not alternate.

John Power (The La's) went on to form Cast. Chris Sharrock (also of The La's) has performed with a whole host of other bands.

I assume you didn't mention The Rascals (Miles Kane of Last Shadow Puppets' band) as they haven't had a hit single.

In your summary, you say that Answer Me spent 18 weeks at number one. That was, of course, I Believe as stated in the main text.

I agree with your comments on Greg Lake and LMFAO laugh.gif

Key - $ = US Number One (1959-date), ✮ UK Million Seller, ➜ Still in Top 75 at this time. A line in red indicates a Number 1, a line in blue indicate a Top 10 hit.




LV
American male raper, born Larry Sanders, 22/10/54


You might want to change that before he thinks you're accusing him of something!
Actually he's a singer rather than a rapper anyway.

Oh, and since the La Roux thing has come up, my inclination is to say that Ben Langmaid wasn't a member of the group by the time 'Uptight Downtown' was released, having officially left. But I see it is a tricky one.

'Won' is misspelt in Lady Antebellum's biog.
Helen Marnie is misspelt in Ladytron's biog.
Las Ketchup only had 3 members at the time of their only hit.

Other than that, great stuff as usual!

Hopefully all the above corrected, and Part 48 now added. I've tried to summarise the LaRoux situation as best I can but if someone has a better way of pitting it, please do.

One of my favourite dance records is in this batch, "Thou Shalt Always Kill" by Dan le Sac & Scroobius Pip. Plenty of other dance-y type stuff in this back, e.g. LCD Soundsystem (which now I think of it, following my rules should have been in the first group of Ls!), Fedde le Grand, Lemon Jelly...

Another group here are the talent show alumni - Lemar (who had a longer hitmaking career than I remembered), Leona Lewis & Liberty X

We also have a couple of legends - Led Zeppelin & John Lennon, plus a Legend (John of course), Brit-hogging Annie Lennox, some boy bands (Lawson & Let Loose) and some indie favourites (Levellers, Lemonheads)

Lethal Bizzle (should he be an L or a B?) would have been credited with one more hit had the OCC mentioned him for "Flutes" as they should have done, Level 42 turned from Jazz-Funk cool kids into the blandest of the bland, Jona Lewie had another of the more underappreciated Christmas classics (see Greg Lake in last week's batch), while the most weeks on chart of anyone in this group was Little Miss Dynamite, Brenda Lee.




Help Needed
Can anyone sort out who were in Little Caesar (if that was a band) and Live Element for next week's batch please? I assume there must have been either two Live Element's or two Chris Malinchak's, as the timeline doesn't work to put them together as often found on Google.



As usual, any other additions/corrections please welcome.

This interview with Chris Malinchak (definitely of the 'So Good To Me' variety) mentions Live Element so it does appear to be him - I didn't know about that at all, had always assumed he was a complete unknown before 'So Good To Me'. Must go and retroactively add that note to my chart summary things tongue.gif

Keith Lemon should have a link to Bo Selecta/Avid Merrion.
Lemonescent's 3rd hit was Help Me Mama.
Adam Levine's birth name does not need to be mentioned in his biog.
Olivia Newton-John has had more weeks at #1 than Leona Lewis (although they were not solo hits, she was individually credited).
Footprints In The Sand did not reach its #25 peak until 2008.

A great read as usual, though!

Working on this right now, Leigh Francis' three alter-egos should probably be combined into one entry, but has anyone any ideas whether they should be collated to Avid Merrion, Bo Selecta or Keith Lemon (or even, in a rare move, collected under his real name even though he hasn't had a hit under that)?

"Footprints In The Sand" - yes, but I have a bug in the part of the software which pumps out the "peaked in ..." if its was significantly different from the original entry. I'll come back and have a look at that one later.


I haven't found any membership details for Little Caesar, will have to leave it as generic as possible for now.


Anyway, as I'm doing a post now I might as well do the brief round-up here as well rather than create another post.

Featured artist-in-chief Lil Wayne has had more US Billboard Hot 100 hits than anyone else in history (even Elvis) but here he is not in that league but he has the most weeks on chart of the next 100 acts, 258 compared to Linkin Park's 166 (boosted this week of course).

The only others in 3 figures are Lightning Seeds (courtesy of course of the various "Three Lions" runs) and Little Richard , who is still active even in his 80s.

Will Little Mix still be active in their 80s? Probably not, but they're next with 95 weeks and should easily break the 100 with their next release.

Other "Lil's" include Lil Jon (who I'd forgotten was on a Number One) and Lil Kim (who I'd remembered was on a Number One).

Limp Bizkit also had a plesantly surprising Number One, as did Livin' Joy, while Cher Lloyd had a depressingly predictable one. Lieutenant Pigeon made Number One with a novelty record, Lillywood & Robin Schulz with a more mainstream record and set a record of sorts with one of the most confusing sequence of artist credits in recent memory. If Schulz appears on the chart under his own name (rather than just as a remixer) he will be stripped out of this section and appear within the "S" group.



One more question - Tove Lo. Best filed under "T" or "L"?

The Bo Selecta track wasn't just Leigh Francis (I think?) so I wouldn't combine it with the other two. Perhaps list that one separately and the other two under Leigh Francis as neither alias is particularly more prominent than the other, though the Avid Merrion song did chart a lot higher.

I would probably put Tove Lo under T. Of course, the same question could apply to the likes of George Ezra who has already appeared under E. Why do these people insist on confusing matters?

All of this confusion COULD be avoided by just alphabetising by first name instead but I guess it's too late to suggest that tongue.gif
