In Friday's Chart Adele's 25 returned to No.1 for its 8th Week on top.
Her No.1 Albums Weeks Total then rose to 32. Added to her 8 No.1 Weeks
on top of the Singles Chart, this gave her a 40th Week at No.1 in the
UK. She became only the 16th Act to reach 40 UK No.1 Weeks. She is
the 2nd Artist, within a few Weeks, to reach 40 UK No.1 Weeks. In the
Album Chart of W/E 11th February, David Bowie had his 40th No.1 Week.

NOTE -- I've counted Evita, (1996), as a Madonna & Various Artists
Album. It was No.1 for 1 Week in early 1997. If you only regard it as
a Various Artists Album, then she has spent 29 Weeks at No.1 in the
Album Chart & 58 Weeks at No.1 over-all. But, she would still at No.6
in the List even without Evita's No.1 Week.


ARTISTS WITH THE MOST NUMBER 1 WEEKS IN THE UK CHARTS

(Singles Weeks & Albums Weeks combined)

S = SINGLES WEEKS -- A = ALBUMS WEEKS


1)... BEATLES -- 69 (S) + 174 (A) = 243 WEEKS

2)... ELVIS PRESLEY -- 80 (S) + 65 (A) = 145 WEEKS

3)... ABBA -- 31 (S) + 57 (A) = 88 WEEKS

4)... CLIFF RICHARD -- 46 (S) + 30 (A) = 76 WEEKS

5)... ROLLING STONES -- 18 (S) + 45 (A) = 63 WEEKS

6)... MADONNA -- 29 (S) + 30 (A) = 59 WEEKS

7)... TAKE THAT -- 28 (S) + 28 (A) = 56 WEEKS

8)... ELTON JOHN -- 23 (S) + 29 (A) = 52 WEEKS

9)... MICHAEL JACKSON -- 16 (S) + 31 (A) = 47 WEEKS

10)... ROD STEWART -- 18 (S) + 28 (A) = 46 WEEKS

11)... ROBBIE WILLIAMS -- 11 (S) + 34 (A) = 45 WEEKS

12)... SIMON & GARFUNKEL -- 3 (S) + 40 (A) = 43 WEEKS

13)... QUEEN -- 21 (S) + 21 (A) = 42 WEEKS

14)= DAVID BOWIE -- 13 (S) + 27 (A) = 40 WEEKS
14)= SPICE GIRLS -- 22 (S) + 18 (A) = 40 WEEKS
14)= ADELE -- 8 (S) + 32 (A) = 40 WEEKS


NOTE -- THE SHADOWS -- If we add their 37 No.1 Weeks as The Shadows,
(16 Singles Weeks + 21 Albums Weeks), to their 49 No.1 Weeks with
Cliff Richard, (28 Singles Weeks + 21 Albums Weeks), they would be
in 4th place, with 86 No.1 Weeks
