I worked on 4 Lists for this Weeks contribution to Suedehead's Thread. In the end I decided not to
use any of them. Instead I up-dated the 2 Lists below.

NOTE -- As you can see, the fact that Robbie's latest No.1 Album is his 12th & his 35th No.1 Album
Week, moves him up in both Lists.

He moves into the Top 10 in the Acts with the most No.1 Weeks List. He moves up to No.7 in the List
of the Acts with the most UK No.1's. As you can see, he is 7th= in that List - with Take That. But their
No.1 Hits are a mirror image of each other - Take That have 12 No.1 Singles & 7 No.1 Albums & Robbie
has 7 No.1 Singles & 12 No.1 Albums.....

ELTON JOHN -- For some reason The OCC does not count Elton's 2012 Album, with the Australian Duo Pnau,
as being a No.1 for him. Even though it is credited to Elton John vs Pnau and all 3 of them are pictured on
the cover. So The OCC give Elton 6 UK No.1 Albums & 28 No.1 Album Weeks - giving him 51 UK No.1 Weeks
over-all. As you can see, I do count his No.1 with Pnau as being an Elton No.1 & he gets 52 UK No.1 Weeks
in my List.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

THE ACTS WITH THE MOST UK NUMBER 1s

(W/E 15th November 1952 to W/E 17th November 2016)

(S = No.1 Singles + B = No.1 Albums)


01) ELVIS PRESLEY S = 21 + A = 13 = 34 UK No.1s @@@

02) THE BEATLES S = 17 + A = 15 = 32 UK No.1s

03) MADONNA S = 13 + A = 12 = 25 UK No.1s

04)= CLIFF RICHARD S = 14 + A = 7 = 21 UK No.1s
04)= WESTLIFE S = 14 + A = 7 = 21 UK No.1s

06)= TAKE THAT S = 12 + A = 7 = 19 UK No.1s
06)= ROBBIE WILLIAMS S = 7 + A = 12 = 19 UK No.1s

08)= ROLLING STONES S = 8 + A = 10 = 18 UK No.1s
08)= ABBA S = 9 + A = 9 = 18 UK No.1s

10)= MICHAEL JACKSON S = 7 + A = 10 = 17 UK No.1s
10)= U2 S = 7 + A = 10 = 17 UK No.1s

12)= DAVID BOWIE S = 5 + A = 11 = 16 UK No.1s
12)= OASIS S = 8 + A = 8 = 16 UK No.1s


@@@ = ELVIS PRESLEY -- If you count Elvis's 3 No.1's in 2005 as old No.1's returning there, then he's had
18 No.1 Singles. That would give him 31 UK No.1's - putting him in 2nd place, behind The Beatles. The OCC
give him 21 No.1 Singles.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

THE ACTS WITH THE MOST WEEKS AT NUMBER 1

(W/E 15th November 1952 to W/E 17th November 2016)

01) THE BEATLES S = 69 Weeks + A = 174 Weeks = 243 UK No.1 Weeks

02) ELVIS PRESLEY S = 80 Weeks + A = 66 Weeks = 146 UK No.1 Weeks

03)... ABBA S =31 Weeks + A = 57 Weeks = 88 UK No.1 Weeks

04) CLIFF RICHARD S = 46 Weeks + A = 30 Weeks = 76 UK No.1 Weeks

Thanks for those lists Colin. I hope you didn't abandon the other lists because of something I said (or didn't say).

The OCC's rules for counting albums remain a mystery. If Elton John vs Pnau doesn't count towards his total, Elvis Presley and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra should surely also not count towards Elvis's total.

Simon - No, nothing you, (or anyone else), has said caused me to 'abandon' the 4 Chart Trivia Lists,
that I planned to add to your Thread today.

I just decided that all 4 of them were not that great & that I'd rather use the 2 No.1's Lists. I will use
the other 4 Lists in the future, when I feel they are good enough & relevant enough.

Yes, The OCC do make many odd decisions. I tried to find Barbra Streisand in their Artists, ('B'), Section,
& she is just not there! You can only see her collaborations. If you want to get to Barbra's full Section, you
have to find an old Chart, (say 1977, 1980, or 1982), that she has a Hit Single or Album in, & click on her
name in the Chart!

The OCC recently did an Article about Barbra having her 7th UK No.1 Album. But, in her Section they only
give her 6! They don't count the 1977 'A Star Is Born' Soundtrack as a Barbra No.1. But they do List it as
a very low re-entry for her, (No.71), in 1982! (You can only get 7 UK No.1 Albums for her by counting the
1977 Film Soundtrack, as one of her No.1's).

Over-all Robbie Williams has sung on 16 UK No.1 Albums.

He was on 4 with Take That - Everything Changes, (1993), Nobody Else, (1995),
Greatest Hits, (1996), and Progress, (2010). The OCC regards the enhanced version
- Progressed - reaching No.1, in 2011, as Progress returning to No.1.

Although Robbie left Take That in June 1995 & Greatest Hits was released in March 1996,
it is right to say that it is one of his No.1's, as he sang on 17 of the 18 Tracks on it.

Only 3 of The Beatles have been on more UK No.1 Albums - Paul McCartney, (22), and John Lennon
& George Harrison, (18 each). George's 18 include 1 with The Traveling Wilburys, in 2007. Ringo Starr
has had 15 UK No.1 Albums - all with The Beatles.
