17/22

my wrong answers were the most consecutive #1s question [damn you westlife], the sales gap question (that was really a guess, the difference between answers was barely anything), who kicked Whitney off #1 (thought it was Shaggy for some reason), the year Cher got a #1 and how many years between Kylie chart toppers

12! It was actually quite tough. Some of the stuff you either know or you don't.

I got 17, pretty happy with that, though a couple were guesses. The Pharrell Williams question isn't clear enough as it could mean either the number of separate periods at #1 or number of weeks.

17/22! Felt I got lucky with a lot of those. (missed ABBA's last #1, the first #1 of the 21st century, Lily/Bastille, the X Factor Christmas #1 misses and 2010's #1s)

I only got 8 - but a lot of the questions fell between 1985 & 2003 when I wasn't following the charts. teresa.gif

20! ohmy.gif I didn't get the last ABBA #1 or who stopped 'Vienna' getting to #1. Can't believe I actually remembered how many copies stopped Bastille getting to #1! laugh.gif

Well I didn't beat that (I got 15) but how did you not get the Vienna question? That's surely one of the few questions here that even non chart geeks could probably get (especially as there were two correct answers - I claim a bonus point for knowing both of them tongue.gif)

Ones I didn't get: years between Kylie's #1s, number of #1s in 2010, year of Cher's second #1 (I was certain she didn't have another one until 'Believe'!), number of sales between Lily Allen and Bastille, song that knocked Whitney off #1, last ABBA #1, longest running #1 of 2003

To be honest I don't even know what 'Vienna' sounds like! tongue.gif I'll probably know it if I listened as it is one of the biggest "shoulda been a #1". But yeah, I've never known what blocked it.

I almost got the oldest person to get a #1 wrong too - I thought Cher at first, then remembered that ghastly Comic Relief cover of 'Islands in the Stream' that Tom Jones featured on.

Speaking of Madge's #1s, you can rate them in the link in my signature. kink.gif

Oh I got 11.

I feel like Manics should count as the first #1 of the 21st century since Westlife first hit #1 at the end of 1999, but then to be more pedantic the 21st century is supposed to start at 2001, I'm certainly not bitter about getting it wrong

19 for me!

The ones I got wrong:
Lily/Bastille sales gap (I had no idea, I guessed, it was wrong).
longest runner at no1 in 2003 (was sure it was Beyonce).
Madonna's no1's (I tried counting them up in my head, but completely forgot about "Sorry" and "American Pie".)

Got 2 wrong: the Lily Allen-Bastille sales gap, and the first #1 of 2000 (ambiguously worded IMO).
