One day, I was messing around on my laptop watching random videos on YouTube, when I found this video about a 1979 song that is nowhere to be found.

The song is called "Ready 'n' Steady" by D.A. It spent 3 weeks on the US Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart, where it peaked at 102.


16.06.1979 [106-103-102>3]


This was not the only time I found a non-existent song being listed on a singles chart!

Back when we had this website called Chart Stats (before OCC took it down in November 2012), there was a one-week wonder on the 07/02/2009 singles chart at #97 listed as "Culture Shock - Against All Odds". The single was listed as non-existent in a forum and it was merged with the Chase & Status song of the same name (which debuted 2 weeks later). The Culture Shock credit was only listed due to confusion with the catalogue numbers of "Chronix" (RAMM74) by Culture Shock and "Against All Odds" (RAMM76) by Chase & Status (since Culture Shock and Chase & Status were both signed to Ram Records).

However, with "Ready 'n' Steady", there is no mistake involving catalogue numbers. It is an actual song that is harder to find than a diamond undergound. Not even Discogs has any track of the record.

I remember a few years ago we got The Human League 'Together In Electric Dreams' back in the chart (may have just been top 200), although that doesn't actually exist (a version of the song on iTunes credited the song to the wrong artist and OCC didn't notice until it was too late). The following week sales of that were combined with the actual song (by Phil Oakey/Giorgio Moroder) and it disappeared.

I'm actually so amazed to see it found after all this time!
