so Sam Smith is in the chart with 'Lay Me Down' at #18 and (presumably) #1, the comic relief version being #1 and the original #18.

The last time it happened was Bastille 'Pompeii', which after the BRIT awards re-appeared at #21 (live version/mash-up with Waiting All Night) and at #20 (original).

Any other occurrences of this?

Do you mean the same artist or different artists, same songs?

Both I guess, but it's more impressive when it's the same artist as usually they get combined

That reminds me of a good example from 10 years ago, when Sunset Strippers 'Falling Stars' and Cabin Crew 'Star 2 Fall' were both in the top 10. Different artists/titles but they may as well be the same song really!

True!

I just thought of Hallelujah being 1 and 2 in 2008…..

Don't Stop Believing
When I Fall in Love in Dec 1987
Wonderwall in Dec 1995.
It happened a lot more in the 50s/60s when people would cover each others songs.

I feel like this happens more often than not with X Factor winners (though not top 40 for the most recent one).

Amy Winehouse had two versions of 'Valerie' in the top 40 at the same time in 2007, a version with Mark Ronson and a solo version.

"Living Next Door To Alice" was in the chart twice for many weeks in 1995.

The Gompie version got to #17, but the Roy 'Chubby' Brown/original got to #3.

There were two versions of The X Files theme in the Top 10 simultaneously in 1996, if I remember correctly.

I believe there were two concurrent entries for 'Je T'aime... Moi Non Plus' by Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin for a couple of weeks because it was released on two different labels.

On a similar note to 'Pompeii / Waiting All Night', Tinie Tempah's 'We Bring The Stars Out' charted in the same week as both 'Pass Out' and 'Written In The Stars' (and 'Miami 2 Ibiza' wasn't too far outside the top 40 as well).

Leona Lewis was number 2 with 'Better in Time/ Footprints in the Sand' and number 25 with 'Footprints in the sand'. (w /e 16 March 2008). If both versions counted together she would have been number one ('Mercy' by Duffy was number one).

The original version of I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) by Proclaimers and the re-recording featuring Brian Potter and Andy Pipkin (confusingly with the brackets in a different place) were in the chart simultaneously in 2007.

26/7/86 had 2 versions of Lulu - Shout at #41 and #51.

12/6/76 had 2 versions of Shangri-Las - Leader Of The Pack at #47 and #43.

In August 1990 Janet Kay featured on 2 versions of Silly Games - a re-issue of her 1979 original, and a re-recording with Lindy Layton.

You Got The Love / You Got The Dirtee Love

I think they were in the charts at the same time.

Blur's 7" of "Country House" was listed separately to the main CD/12" due to the maximum number of formats being reached - the 7" was at 59 in w/e 9/9/95 while the main entry was at number 2

A similar event happened four months earlier, with Oasis. In their example, the 12" of "Some Might Say" was separated out and poked its nose into the charts at no. 71 in w/e 13/5/95 while the main entry was number 2.

You mean Jay-Z's Empire State Of Mind charted simultaneously with Alicia's solo version tongue.gif It's not her song.

I was well aware of Oasis but never knew that happened for Blur as well!

Another example, ATB's '9PM (Till I Come)' had two different imports charting simultaneously for at least one week.

What's more, if I remember rightly, if the sales for the 12" had been added to the other formats, it would have kept Oasis at Number 1 for a second week, in front of Livin' Joy's Dreamer.
