Thanks for sharing! 'C'est La Vie' is higher than I expected - its pure sales are 925k and I wouldn't have thought it would be a big streamer, but clearly it is.

I was about to ask why Wannabe wasn't in the list and then I realised it is more than 20 years old ohmy.gif

Thanks for posting! biggrin.gif Amazing to get a lot of Spice Girls updates. wub.gif

I wonder if Say You'll Be There could be approaching a million with streams, or even have passed it? A pity this couldn't have been a Top 40 list of the last 25 years! *Greedy for more laugh.gif *

Thanks for this too Liam! Does Headlines definitely include streaming data? I wasn't too sure because it wasn't made clear in the tweet about it unfortunately.
( https://twitter.com/LoveCulture/status/799237172779974656 ). A rather paltry 2,500 added to its total since June 2009. laugh.gif

Actually I think it's excluding streams - I thought the article the tweet was in regards to (Best Selling Children in Need songs) had included streams which would suggest any tweets about it would also include streams, but I've double checked and the article was excluding streams.

I'm a little bit horrified to see the odious 'Work From Home' all the way up at #2 on this list.

Looking back I'm also surprised - although I did know it - to see 'Never Ever' as All Saints' biggest hit. Nowadays it feels like 'Pure Shores' is the most well remembered and well-loved.

Likewise for Spice Girls - 'Goodbye' higher than 'Wannabe' and '2 Become 1'!
