Apologies if such a thread/resource exists for this, but I started to make a playlist of every #1 single from this century and having only started with the year 2000, I noticed that the #1 single Toca’s Miracle by Fragma was not available on Spotify. I don’t know if it’s the case on Apple Music too or other platforms, but I wondered if anybody knew what other UK #1 singles might be missing from Spotify from the last 20 years?

Oh I discovered this one was missing the other day when listening to 80s hits:

Dave Stewart & Barbara Gaskin - It’s My Party

I tried making a playlist a few years ago. The ones I couldn't find in my searches were "If" by Telly Savalas, "D.I.V.O.R.C.E." by Billy Connolly, "The Chicken Song" by the Spitting Image, "Let It Be" by Ferry Aid, "Ferry 'Cross The Mersey" by the Christians etc, "The Stonk" by Hale & Pace, "Love Can Build A Bridge" by Cher etc, "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" by Dunblane, "With A Little Help From My Friends" by Sam & Mark, "Against All Odds" by Steve Brookstein, "Islands In The Stream", and the aforementioned "It's My Party" and "Perfect Day". And of course "River".

Although many of these are unplayable for me in Canada, so I'm not sure if that's Geo-blocking or simply been removed.

Not that I imagine anyone wants to stream it but Bob the builder’s can we fix it is also not on streaming. There are definitely others from before 2006 that aren’t available, though can’t think of the names off the top of my head.

Toca's Miracle may never make it to streaming because of a conflict between the singer and the label. Think she never got paid enough royalties or something.

Prince’s only number one, ‘The Most Beautiful Girl in the World’ isn’t available to stream, which I’ve always found crazy.

Aaliyah’s ‘More Than a Woman’ isn’t either, along with most of her discography due to her uncle owning the rights I think? I had to buy her albums on eBay and add them to my Apple Music account through iTunes in order to play them laugh.gif

Outhere Brothers - Don't Stop (Wiggle Wiggle) isn't available in the radio edit that got most of its airplay at the time and appears on the Now album, nor is 2 Unlimited - No Limit.

David Sneddon's Stop Living The Lie and Justice Collective's He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother are also missing.

Various other songs are available as album versions but are missing the hit radio edits, for example Hear'Say - The Way To Your Love and James Blunt - You're Beautiful.

More Than A Woman and other Aaliyah songs are on Spotify as part of various cheap and not particularly legit looking compilations, so they could probably get taken down at any time.

This is why I still buy DVDs and treasure my iPod and 2000+ collection of downloaded/CD-ripped music! I get ridiculed for it sometimes as being stuck in the 2000s, but it's nice to know I can watch a film/listen to a song at any time without the fear of it being removed or my internet connection going down.

The Now albums on CD are a godsend for many of these, the equivalent playlists on Spotify are either missing songs or feature the wrong versions of others, either longer/shorter edits or completely different mixes.

The KLF's #1s would have been on this list until just a few weeks ago!

Glad someone has made a thread on this topic, I was thinking about it only last week after discovering the KLF's discography had been added to streaming services.
