Updated - somehow, Perfect defied the midweek chart to notch another consecutive week in the Top 75, meaning it makes that top 10 outright, ousting Counting Stars.

Cheers for the comments. On the point about ACR, for sure without it SOY would have overtaken TOL to top most, if not all, of the lists in the first post - however the domination of songs from circa 2014 here (the early streaming era) goes some way to explaining why ACR was introduced in the first place.

Two older songs deserve a footnote - one made just one of these lists, the other didn't make any of them - I'll expand on this in the next update.

Updated - once again Perfect lives to fight another week in the Top 75, it’s now joint 9th in that list.

I mentioned above that two songs deserve a footnote, these are:

(1) Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars: it was ineligible for the charts for 7 weeks in late 2006 as it had been physically deleted - such were the rules at the time, which were then scrapped, allowing it back in. Had it not been for those rules, it would have spent 112 consecutive weeks in the Top 100 (still a record by some distance) and 72 consecutive weeks in the Top 75 (currently placing it 3rd in that list). It would have also been the first song to claim 99 and 100 in the list in my second post in this thread.

(2) Frank Sinatra - My Way: we may never know how long some songs would have spent in the early charts had they been a full Top 100. However in My Way’s case, it’s safe to assume it would have easily topped the most consecutive weeks in the Top 75 and Top 100 lists to this day, while also cleaning up most positions in my second post, had the charts been a Top 100 in the early 1970s. Its longest consecutive run in the chart, then a Top 50, was 42 weeks - yet in the space of its first 122 weeks it only spent 9 of these outside the Top 50, and no more than 3 of these in a row.

Updated - Perfect refuses to drop out of the Top 75 again, so it's now outright 9th on that list. If nothing else, it has raised the bar for This Is Me which would need another 13 weeks to emulate Someone Like You in 10th place.

Updated - Perfect has finally dropped out of the top 75 (most of Buzzjack rejoices). There can't be any further updates to these lists until March at the earliest, depending on how This Is Me (that other Buzzjack favourite) holds up in the next few months.

Updated - This Is Me has arrived rolleyes.gif more on that next week.

Had it not been for a single week in early December when it dipped to #41, Shotgun would now be spending its 40th consecutive week in the Top 40, something only 7 songs have done. Still I'd expect it to impact some of the other lists above in the coming months.

Updated - of the 62 weeks to date The Greatest Showman has been in the albums Top 5, this is the first where there have been less than 3 of its songs in the singles Top 100, but one thing that has remained constant is the highest placed of those songs - This Is Me. In those 62 weeks, it has yet to drop below its current position of #65, so that takes it to joint 9th on the most consecutive weeks in the Top 75 list, knocking Someone Like You out of that particular top 10.

Updated - its parent album's run in the Top 5 may be over, but This Is Me clings on in the Top 75 (just), taking its run to joint 6th on the all time list. Perfect drops to 10th and its stay may be brief as Shotgun has it in its sights.

Updated - This Is Me becomes only the 6th song to spend a 64th consecutive week in the Top 75, and the first of those to peak below #2.

I think this page has run its course as a thread. It has a link from the Chart forum index (thanks danG), and I'll keep the first two posts updated, so if you aren't sick to death of Shotgun you can track its imminent impact here. All being well I'll have some new lists on the way soon.

Wasn't going to add to this thread but then this happened...

Everyone's favourite former #1 that shares its name with a firearm and is sung by someone called George has only gone and made the longest ever run of consecutive weeks in the Top 75. Last week it set a new record of 74 weeks, and this week it has unlocked the magical 75 in the Top 75! In fact, it has yet to drop below #54 in its run!!

It will continue to impact these lists into the autumn, but I can't see it surpassing the Top 100 record as it'll surely be barged out by Christmas songs (at least temporarily) before it can get to 95 weeks.

Interesting list, thanks for compiling it. There seems to be some mistake with Let It Go being listed as the first single to spend 57 weeks in the Top 57, unless the OCC's chart database has a strange discrepancy in the song's chart run. In it's third chart week it entered the Top 57, but on week 42 of its run it popped out of the Top 57, to #60, for one week, so there aren't 57 consecutive weeks. Hope you don't mind me pointing that out, I'm sure all of us chartologists strive for accuracy above anything else.

I've found one other error in the list I'm afriad. The 69 weeks in the Top 69 record has been attributed to Happy, but that was a new entry at #71. and on its 70th week dropped to #73, so there aren't 69 consecutive weeks that it was in the Top 69.

By my reckoning the entire list, from the first to get 1 week in the Top 1, all the way down to 100 weeks in the Top 100, looks like this:

NB For those feats between 57 weeks in the Top 57 and 73 weeks in the Top 73 I indicate in the brackets how many other tracks have since reached the same achievement but aren't listed because they weren't first to do it (precise details follow in a second list). From 74 weeks in the Top 74 downwards all feats have either never been achieved, or have been achieved only once, so no bracketed information was necessary. I haven't attempted to calculate the bracketed information from 1 week in the Top 1 to 56 weeks in the Top 56, given that all those records were first achieved between 52 and 66 years ago, so there has been a lot of time for many many tracks/singles to also achieve them, meaning a lot of work would be required to calculate most of that information.

Every feat has the date of the chart week when that track/single became the first to achieve that feat

1 week in the Top 1 – Here In My Heart (15/11/1952)
2 weeks in the Top 2 – Here In My Heart (22/11/1952)
3 weeks in the Top 3 – Here In My Heart (29/11/1952)
4 weeks in the Top 4 – Here In My Heart (06/12/1952)
5 weeks in the Top 5 – Here In My Heart/You Belong To Me/Feet Up (13/12/1952)
6 weeks in the Top 6 – Here In My Heart/You Belong To Me/Isle Of Innisfree/Feet Up (20/12/1952)
7 weeks in the Top 7 – Here In My Heart/You Belong To Me/Isle Of Innisfree/Feet Up/Half As Much (27/12/1952)
8 weeks in the Top 8 – Here In My Heart/You Belong To Me/Isle Of Innisfree/Feet Up/Half As Much (03/01/1953)
9 weeks in the Top 9 – Here In My Heart/You Belong To Me/Isle Of Innisfree/Feet Up/Half As Much (10/01/1953)
10 weeks in the Top 10 – Here In My Heart/You Belong To Me/Isle Of Innisfree/Feet Up (17/01/1953)
11 weeks in the Top 11 – Here In My Heart/You Belong To Me/Isle Of Innisfree/Because You’re Mine (24/01/1953)
12 weeks in the Top 12 – Here In My Heart/You Belong To Me/Isle Of Innisfree/Because You’re Mine (31/01/1953)

For completeness sake here is the list of all the tracks to achieve feats between 57 weeks in the Top 57 and 100 weeks in the Top 100, with the chart date it happened. Excuse the fact it's acronyms (I usually abhor posts that drop an acronym or two into a comment, in place of the name of an artist, track, tv show etc and expect you to magically know what it means) but this list was originally just the notes I made to check the main list from 57 down, and I only decided afterwards to share it. In any case all the acronyms should be pretty straight forward as all the tracks are literally listed on the post immediatley above, as well as elsewhere in the thread.

Thanks Dan, I appreciate your interest and research to add to this thread. Good spots on 57/Top 57 and 69/Top 69 - I've corrected those in my original post. By the same token, I should mention that on the OCC website, Stranger On The Shore dropped to #47 in week 46, so the first to get 46 in the Top 46 was Release Me instead.
