Thanks for these! Looks like streaming will make trickle-sales harder to guess if a song could potentially manage as much as 100k a year without ever reaching the Top 200.

I estimate 29 songs sold over 100k without charting in the top 75 all year! ohmy.gif

Love checking these stats out - the non-top 75 hits are impressive - especially Tenerife Sea which is just obv being streamed as a fans fav and then the oldest hit being Wonderwall.

Any xmas song sales updates?

Most of them have pre-1994 sales I don't know about, so any figures I could come up with would be incomplete.

I wasn't following chart music at all back then - Britpop was only a small part of the reason why. smile.gif

Insane to see the non-top 75 entries. I remember when a top five single was lucky to pass 150k!

I reckon 82 songs sold over 100k without making the top 30 (at least in 2015 - some did before).
