This topic was probably done in the past but it deserves a new one.

In light of recent events (cough cough The Neales randomly getting to #22 in the chart when nobody had a clue wtf the song even was and how it had got there cough cough) what have been your personal favourite chart moments, for being funny or entertaining or strange?

Obviously that last one tickled me a bit with the randomness of it and how nobody at all predicted it to happen, but I've also loved the awkwardness of fakes being in the charts and presenters describing what they are. Ooh, and when Alan Walker entered the chart and Greg sounded as if the name 'Alan Walker' was too strange to be said on air and even the thought of him being in the top 40 would be a disgrace to humanity.

The one that always comes to mind is Scooter's surprise #1 album (Jumping All Over The World) in 2008, outselling Madonna's Hard Candy that week. The album was almost a year old, available to buy as an import in HMV for months, and they hadn't had a big UK hit for five years, so to suddenly sell 33k in a week (perhaps on the low side for 2008 but pretty decent now) seemed to come out of nowhere and hugely deserved.

Following that, Loreen going top 3 a few years later and creating one of the best top 3s (Feel The Love/We Are Young/Euphoria) of the decade!

That's probably my favourite. I found it amazing yet totally hilarious at the same time.

from my own chart experiences at least:

~ Rage Against The Machine scoring the Christmas #1

~ Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" reaching #1 despite sounding nothing like a chart hit at the time

~ PJ & Duncan and "Ding Dong The Witch is Dead!" contending for #1 (with the former actually getting there), mainly for the WTF factor

~ "Get Lucky" randomly exploding and becoming one of the year's biggest hits

~ The general 'house music takeover' of 2014

~ Stormzy outcharting Louisa Johnson's XF winning single

~ The PERFECT 10 week run at the top for "One Dance", if only to enrage the anti-streaming brigade biggrin.gif

~ Cheryl Cole's "Crazy Stupid Love" beating MAGIC!'s "Rude" to #1 (i.e. #psychic7 proves buzzjack wrong)

~ Tinie Tempah's "Not Letting Go" beating Lost Frequencies' "Are You With Me" to #1 (see above)

there's probably more but i'd need to think back a bit more ~

did psychic 7 predict Rudimental/Newman going to #1 as well when most of us, myself included, weren't even expecting top 5? I know Bré did anyway.
