the one about who had the longest at the top was a bit shady, 'Bohemian Rhapsody' had 14 weeks at #1 in total and they didn't make it clear they wanted the longest consecutive run.

Anyway, I got 17/22

The one about the amount of band aid single to get Xmas no1 threw me off course as I said all of them but band aid 30 only got to no1 in November.

19/22, actually slaying a chart quiz for once *.* for some reason I always remember the Christmas charts the most. Did get thrown by that Band Aid one though, argh.

Weird to think Santa Baby has never made the top 40, though I s'pose less weird than White Christmas never getting the number 1!

White Christmas was released before the chart was official, but unofficially it was No. 1 at Christmas in 1942, 1945, 1946, 1947, 1948, 1949, 1950, & 1951 for a total of 24 weeks, and hit No. 2 in 1943 and 1944.

I feel good now - I got 19/22. biggrin.gif
The correct answer to one of the questions isn't even listed as an option.
You have to get into the stupid mindset of the OCC to get it right...

Got 15/22 which I'm happy with. I also missed the Band Aid question after reading it too quickly. The lack of female solo artists with Christmas #1s really surprises me, to think after 1954 there were none at all for nearly 40 years!

Although i assume vinyl and sheet music was alot lower naturally back then.

It charted in 1977 after Bings death that year i assume?
