So these are the tracks that topped my charts during the 70's, novelty and all, and those that topped my charts in subsequent decades put back into the year of release, cos I don't like oldies out of time in these sort of lists. The total weeks therefore will be more than 52 for each year, because these were my teen years, and early 20's, and everybody loves those years best when it comes to music (oh yes they do!). Reissues that topped my charts in later years get added to the run of the time, so it's totals without those annoying 1-week runs littering up the place.

John, obviously you prefer other ABBA singles, than me.

Zero number ones for Brotherhood of Man. ohmy.gif

Shared # 1s :
Mary Hopkin - Temma Harbour
Dana - All Kinds Of Everything (possibly in my all-time top 10 songs)
New Seekers - I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing (In Perfect Harmony)
New Seekers - Never Ending Song Of Love
New Seekers - Beg, Steal Or Borrow
Lynsey De Paul - Sugar Me
Baccara - Yes Sir, I Can Boogie
Blondie - Heart Of Glass
Blondie - Sunday Girl (possibly in my all-time top 10 songs)
Blondie - Denis
ABBA - Waterloo
ABBA - Thank You For The Music
ABBA - Angeleyes
ABBA - I Have A Dream
ABBA - Knowing Me Knowing You

"Kisses Of Fire" and "I'm A Marionette" are illegal for my chart, both could be # 1s.

I don't know the correct number of ABBA number ones in my chart.

Something like it, in the preference order :
1. That's Me
2. Honey Honey
3. When All Is Said And Done
4. When I Kissed The Teacher
5. Angeleyes
6. Knowing Me, Knowing You
7. The Winner Takes It All
8. Ring Ring
9. Waterloo
10. Hasta Manana
11. Head Over Heels
12. Nina, Pretty Ballerina
13. Thank You For The Music
14. I Have A Dream
15. Happy New Year

Blondie and YVA had only 12 number ones.

Hi Alex, cool.gif

"only" 12 number ones! laugh.gif Blondie have had 7 or 8 chart-toppers for me (I think), and Brotherhood Of Man came close with Oh Boy (The Mood I'm In) at 2, and Angelo (3). 4 of your Abba picks will top my charts in the 80's.... cheer.gif

Based on the rules of my chart almost all non-singles are illegal.
So 12 number ones is really big number, for Blondie it's a long chain with 11 (!!!) consecutive # 1s (from "In The Flesh" to "Atomic") + comeback # 1 "Maria"

YVA also had 11 number ones in their glory days (2005-2009) and comeback single "Kaukes" (Masks) became their wonderful # 1 comeback in 2017.

All YVA # 1s :
1. Brunetes Blondines
2. Barbie
3. I Dangu
4. Taip Taip Taip
5. Panele Verta Milijono
6. Laukiu Kaledu
7. Velnias Manyje Gyvena
8. Vasaros Mergaites
9. Kaukes
10. Paparacai
11. Katyciu Dainele
12. Pabuciuok

*For Lithuanian acts (like YVA) only songs with official video, radio airplay or TV performances can be include in my chart.
