I'll expand the posts above next week to cover the whole Top 100 where 3 weeks or more, but for now I've just updated them because...

In one of those statistical anomalies the chart throws up (see also having just one 8-week #1 between 1970-2017), in the 65-year history of the Top 20 no song has ever spent 3 or more weeks at a peak position of #18, consecutively or in total. For every other position in the Top 20 this has been done many times over and for every other position down to #29 this has happened at least once in the past, but not #18, despite many near misses in recent years. Well since my last update two songs appeared to have done it: first Freya Ridings - Castles, but that went on to re-peak at #16; and now Jorja Smith featuring Burna Boy - Be Honest, which this week spends its 4th week and 3rd consecutive at #18 which is its peak to date. Now let's be honest, it will probably move to a higher peak in the coming weeks (and it deserves to), but for a brief snapshot in time at least it has its own little place in chart history.

As promised last week, the lists above now cover each peak position in the whole Top 100 where the record is 3 weeks or more.

As I expected, this once again does not apply to #18. At the same time, the record for #6 has been matched (for now...)

Updated the lists in the first 3 posts. For the one in the OP, since I last added to this thread, Kiss Me More (at #3) and You Should Be Sad (at #12) became the first songs to set new records for most weeks at peak in any Top 20 positions since 1996.

I’ve gone back through chart history to check for every song which spent two weeks at a peak of #18 and counted a colossal 53 of them! The most recent one, from Ava Max, perhaps came closest to having an unprecedented third week there, with 6 of its other weeks being at #19. I’ve also added the number of songs which spent two weeks at peak for each of the other Top 40 positions which have yet to have a 3-weeker (#30, #35, #36 and #39) and the same for the consecutive weeks list (also #38) in the second post.

In the third post, following my recent Anagrams Quiz which covered every Top 30 position, I set out to discover if at least one song has double-peaked (i.e. spent exactly two non-consecutive weeks at peak) at every position in the Top 40. The answer is... yes, in fact at least two have, although we have to go all the way back to 1962 for the last song to do this at #33 (and that was within 3 years of the complete chart expanding from a Top 30). I may eventually check all the other Top 100 positions for this too, although that would take me considerably longer to do smile.gif

Fantastic, but what about Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles”? 4 consecutive weeks at #18.

I've got another thread for most consecutive weeks at each position (regardless of peak) - the link is at the top of the original post on this page!
