Not a project I’m going to embark on right now, but if anyone knows or has a list of songs that have got to #1 after the artist had passed away, please share. I thought a list might already exist on BuzzJack but it wasn’t easy to find. I don’t anticipate this list being massive, at least based on #1 singles from the last 20 years or so, but maybe prior to that it was more of a common feature.

Thanks Bré, I thought a list should already exist somewhere!

Interesting to see that a few weeks ago we had the first charttopping posthumous artist in some time, at least as far as the singles chart is concerned. And it served to remind me that I hadn't got round to listening to the new Eminem song yet. I've just done so, and as much as I'm impressed by the speed of his rapping, I don't think I'll especially want to listen to it again. Also interesting to note that the 2010s were the first decade when there were no posthumous charttoppers on the singles chart (unless you take the mathematically/chronologically correct view that a decade actually starts with a year ending with a one, and ends on a year ending with a 0).
