The OCC have finally started publishing the year-end charts, starting with the top forty singles (sales and strewing combined). They have promised separate sales and streaming charts will follow.

One question arising from this. When was the last time a song spent all year at the top of the year-to-date chart?

Thank god we have a clear list this year, rather than the range of different lists that came out last year, of which it was hard to tell which was being used as the 'official' one.

Possibly never. Or possibly 1977. 'Don't Give Up On us' by David Soul was number 1 on 1977 sales from the very first day of the year until the end of year chart was compiled. However, two points to note:

1. I don't think the then chart compiler BMRB compiled weekly "year to date" charts, they merely just compiled an end of year chart.

2. The end of year chart had a sales cut-off point of 10 December 1977. The BPI / BMRB later compiled a second "year end chart" for statistical purposes which included sales to the end of the year (minus one week over Christmas where no sales were collected) and the number 1 was 'Mull Of Kintyre' by Wings. However, officially David Soul still seems to be classed as having the top selling single of 1977.

Other than the above, I don't think it has ever happened until 2015.

Shows the huge popularity of Uptown Funk even with a Dec 14 release date!

Hopefully OCC put up a top 100 soon, their website still only has a top 100 for 2014.

I'm pleased to see how close my estimated totals are to the real ones from the OCC. cheer.gif

Thanks. As David Soul was number one for four weeks at the start of 1977, it seems reasonable to assume that he would have topped every YTD chart of the year (up to the early cut-off point) if they had been compiled.

Bieber sold a few singles last year didn't he!

Pleased to see Sia's 'Elastic Heart' in the Top 40 even though 'Big Girls Cry' should have been in there too smile.gif

Nothing published yet, but I'm sure it will appear some time this week. I'll stick my neck out and guess that Adele will be number one.

Happy can't have been that far off.

I'd forgotten about 'Happy'.

I've just checked - 'Happy' moved to the top of the YTD listings on 19 January 2014, the third chart of 2014 ('Timber' by Pitbull featuring Ke$ha was top for the first two weeks) and remained at the top for the rest of the year.

It did, so I should be able to post my Y/E T100 estimates in the next day or so. smile.gif

The next one's probably going to be bloomin' Love Yourself. I mean I like Uptown Funk and everything but it didn't make for the most exciting year did it?

Love Yourself has been at the top for longer than Happy or Uptown Funk had been at the turn of the year, so something should overhaul it at some point in the year.

You'd hope so. Just if it keeps streaming all year and puts on 1M or so combined sales, after all Thinking Out Loud almost did 1M in two consecutive years
