Apologies if this counts as any sort of duplicate thread idea, but I was interested to see if the community could pick one defining moment of the last decade, a chart shocker or surprise, or some memorable chart moments that kept your interest peaked in UK chart music.

Here are some that I thought of that will perhaps be hard to match or beat in the future...


Pharrell Williams’ single Happy becoming the most downloaded song of all time in the UK by the end of 2014.

Drake’s 15 week dominance at #1 in 2016 with One Dance just a week shy of matching the all time record held by Bryan Adams.

Ed Sheeran’s occupancy of the entire UK Top 15 singles bar one position in 2017 upon the release of his album Divide.



I’m sure you can think of more, so over to you.

Probably the introduction of OAOS so we could listen or purchase a song immediately when it was available.

'Three Lions' returning to #1 last year and PJ & Duncan getting to #1 with 'Let's Get Ready To Rumble' both stand out massively to me *.*

Also, it’s up for debate, but for me the best novelty #1 single of the decade has to go to this from 2012!

Oh yes the PJ & Duncan return was quite a big surprise to many, including the artists! laugh.gif

ELO having two number 1 albums in this decade. I never thought that would happen.

Def the novelty hit of the decade which will be remembered.

Adele's stratospheric rise after her BRITS performance of Someone Like You in 2011.

Oh and Ed Sheeran's near takeover of the top 10 in 2017.

Avicii 'Wake Me Up' entering at #1 with over 250k sales after having to have been brought forward a few weeks was amazing to witness – and I'd already had a Spotify subscription at that point so wasn't even part of that number

(although it does have a chart sale from me just from the amount of times I've played it since 2014 (would be about 2.5 chart sales if my 2013 streams counted))

Less of a singular moment but streaming coming into prominence has to be the big one - it has forever changed what it is that the charts measure. I was rather pleased to see it finally be too big for the OCC to ignore and have it count to the chart as I'd had a Spotify subscription for nearly 2 years at that point – even if it has led to some rather messy chart situations and funny rules.

And one of the music industry’s saddest losses this decade too. sad.gif

Ladbaby's two consecutive Christmas No.1's was great.

Although it is great not to have to wait weeks to get hold of a single these days (though tbh I had my ways of "obtaining" them pre-release anyway!), I much preferred the chart in the days of a pre-release build up with the aim of entering in the top 10. The chart seemed to be working quite nicely in the first half of the decade just before the (re-)introduction of OAOS around 2015, where holding back singles worked well for a lot of artists, but it wasn't necessarily the end of the story if you didn't do first week out. It was a happy medium of a chart that was reasonably fast-paced and it felt like everyone stood a chance of doing well. And as someone who is a proper 90s/early 00s pop lover, in hindsight I wish I'd appreciated 2012-2014 more than I did at the time, because it was a great time for pop.

2018 seeing Lady Gaga finally getting another UK #1 single. Plus album as well was a real highlight for me and quite the shock.

Whitney Houston having a #2 hit this year as well wub.gif

Adele’s success with 21. It was earth shattering. Selling over 5 million copies in the U.K. alone.

A Eurovision song becoming an actual hit! Reaching number 1 on iTunes and top 3 officially (and the decline not being a sharp drop) was amazing to see. Eurovision songs CAN still be hits! heart.gif (granted that it's going to be much harder now with streaming involved)

I’d go with two...
1. Ella Henderson’s Ghost going no.1
2. Adele’s Hello going no 1 while first hearing it on holiday.

Bad Romance being the first UK #1 of the decade was a great result as I’m sure Jade will tell you!

Spotify now supports Eurovision songs, so I wouldn’t be surprised if a song took off soon!
