A Little Less Conversation didn't chart in the UK until 2002.

Stand By Me took 25 years 8 months from first charting in 1961 to reaching #1 in 1987, so that just leaves Reet Petite with a longer wait than the 26 years AIWFCIY would have. If either Last Christmas or (less likely) Fairytale Of New York ever get there, they would beat that.

34 years - A Little Less Conversation (Elvis Presley)
24 years - Are You Ready for Love (Elton John)
15 years - Itís Like That (Run DMC)
8 years - Living On My Own (Freddie Mercury)


I wouldn't count any of these as they charted via new remixes - one very subtle (Are You Ready for Love) and the others completely different from the original. A Little Less Conversation was a new remix credited to Junkie XL, It's Like That was a radical rework by Jason Nevins and Living On My Own was a new Eurodance remake by the No More Brothers.

^well, if you're strict about the credits, then the 2005 version of Is this the way to Amarillo shouldn't count as it's credited to TONY CHRISTIE FT PETER KAY

Edited smile.gif Any more suggestions - I think the cut off should be 5 years - The Proclaimers I think was a re-recording.

Think Amarillo should be at the top as it is exactly the same recording as the original, despite the Peter Kay credit. It is also 34 years, not 24 years - 1971 original - 2005 finally made No. 1 :-)

Hadn't spotted that earlier. Wham! could still beat that if they get there.

Do you think Wham will? It seems so be always a similar amount behind on daily streams each year, quite frustrating

I think Wham! could well do it eventually, and if they do it could then pave the way for the Pogues to finally make it another week or year, although the ship is just starting to sail, sadly, for the Pogues in terms of its popularity, so perhaps by the time Wham! do eventually manage it (if such happens) it might be too late for the Pogues to then follow suit.

I think for the Pogues it will be extremely difficult as they're not well placed on Spotify playlists

Yeh I agree regarding the Pogues. Think they are punching above their weight as the saying goes considering their playlist position. if they were number one their streams would get a boost.

Stand By Your Man - Tammy Wynette needs to go above Bowie as it was released in 1968 and hit No.1 in May 1975.

Amazing achievement for Wham! Shame George isn't alive to see it finally get to the top. I wonder how long they will hold the record for.
