We're getting to the end of May, and yet there have only been 6 so far - how many do you think there'll be for the full year?

At this rate we may get even fewer than the 17 we got in 2007. I predict 16

I've gone for 15. Looks like we'll have to change the points system for '#1 of the year' again. laugh.gif

I've gone 12 or less. If we don't get another one-week #1 by the end of the year, it will be 1993 all over again

I'd say 1952 : one. laugh.gif

Seriously though, I believe the answer is 1962, with 12.

And 1971 and 1992 each share a joint record of least one-week #1s with 0

Streaming certainly offers a better chance of high sustained sales, as unlike paid-for sales, you can contribute to a song's chart position every week for months.

"all over again" makes it sound like it will be an ordeal if that happens.

If we're going down that route I'm going to say any year before 1952: zero smile.gif

I think having to read Hadji's posts is more of an ordeal laugh.gif

I can't see it being that low - there are 32 chart weeks left, so each #1 to come would have to average 5-6 weeks... confused.gif

16, seeing as there'll probably be a few more one-week #1s towards the end of the year (the token Xmas charity hit, Harry Styles' debut single, etc.) alongside the now average 3-5 week runs.

1992 also had 12 number ones if you don't count "Bohemian Rhapsody" which was a holdover from 1991

So far this year its 5, Justin Bieber is a carry over from 2015 as he returned to #1, I would probably stick my neck out and say around 14.

The only #1 ordeal for me in 1993 was "Mr Blobby"

I think there will be around 15 in total, that seems to be the average on the streaming chart.

Personally I think the ideal number is somewhere between 20 and 25 with a fast moving chart beneath them - that seems to be about the average on my personal chart and is just over 2 weeks for each #1 roughly (allowing for variations obviously). I know some like the fast turnover of number 1s that 2000, 2014 and 1999 brought but the thing I liked about the pre-1995 era was the whole number 1 on my birthday thing actually meant something as opposed to what record company had bought the rights for #1 that week.

Looking at debuts at number 1, we have had only 1 so far. The last time we had just 1 all year was 1992 and there were just as mentioned already 12 number 1s that year; the joint second-lowest on record for a full year.

Also that Kungs track if that catches on, could have a long run at #1, it just sounds like a summer smash, if the track gets there.

1954: 11

Including runs of 10, 9 and 8 weeks at the top and this instrumental...



Soon to feature on a Drake mixtape I hope.

^ what a banger! laugh.gif

on current form ~15, however #1 turnover in 2003, 2008 and 2015 increased somewhat in the second half of the year after deceptively slow starts, so it could be higher than we think~

Then why over stated and say "like 1993 all over again".

And by the time we know the answer the year will be over anyway.
