A comment in the weekly chart show thread got me thinking about this... has there ever been a song in chart history that has spent a week or more at each chart position in the Top 10? unsure.gif

I think it’s highly unlikely but not impossible, and would love to be proved wrong!

I checked the list of songs that have spent the most weeks in the Top 10 and there's a few that have spent a week at each position but one.

I'll try and think of some other possibilities.

I’d love if it we eventually got a song that went 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 in its first ten weeks laugh.gif

More likely to happen in the streaming era than any other time I would imagine.

I was thinking about this, I'm sure there was a song that seemed like it could manage it or did it apart from a couple of positions but I can't think what it was.

The notable example of a song nearly achieving it is Eminem's 'The Real Slim Shady' moving 1-2-3-4-5-7-8-10-11

Flo Rida's 'Good Feeling' had a top 10 run of 2-3-4-5-6-7-3-1-2-5-9.

So if Dua Lipa manages to drop one chart position next week to claim #10 with Don’t Start Now she will have managed 9 chart positions, all excluding the most coveted chart position at #1.

I’m guessing she could be the first person to achieve 9 chart positions it if it happens for her next week.

Not at all, several managed 9 chart positions in the top 10 including Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud managing all apart from #9.

Also there's approximately a negative chance that 'Don't Start Now' will still be top 10 next week anyway since it's going to ACR.

The original 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' is only missing #5, #8 and #10, could definitely manage at least the latter two positions in the next couple of years.

Was just checking Mariah’s chart run to see if she’d come close with “All I Want”, and I found that she’s spent 24 weeks in the top 10, but bizarrely only charted at the positions 2, 4, 5, 6 & 8! Very strange coincidence that she appears to chart at the same numbers every year.

After spending a regrettably long amount of time looking through the chart runs of every number one single ever, I'm pretty sure that a chart run including all of the top ten positions has never been achieved. I was hoping I could find some lesser-known old track that did it, but it seems as though it hasn't been done before. That's an evening I'll never get back laugh.gif

At least we know that if it does happen it will (unless I've missed something) be a first!

Fairytale Of New York similar to Mariah has done nearly all the top 10 in its time to Of 18 weeks in the top 10 at positions

8,2,2,4,3,5,10,6,8,4,9,10,7,7,5,10,4,4.

Only missing no1!

This was discussed a few months ago and I've found the thread here so thanks coi for confirming Dobbo's point that it's never happened before!

Coincidentally, I'm doing a quiz on a very similar theme next week, so I'm sure some of your research will come in handy then! (Although I may edit a few of the questions so they're not too obvious from reading this thread.) Among the songs that have done 9 out of the Top 10 is Bill Haley and his Comets - Rock Around The Clock which has been at every position in the Top 9, but not #10!
