Yesterday I had some music on shuffle in the car and Des'ree's Life came on immediately after Darren Hayes' Insatiable. It struck me how similar the chart runs were for these two songs, four years apart:

8-15-14-16-16-21-22-21-26-30-34 (Life)

8-12-12-13-12-12-16-20-25-37-39 (Insatiable)

Obviously not exactly the same but I found it interesting how both entered at No.8 and then stayed top 10 for just one week before lingering in the top 20 for a while longer than you would have expected a No.8 record to at this time (including both climbing back up at one point). Presumably the very high airplay for both kept them afloat for a while, I can't remember if either had been expected to peak higher initially than they did. And then they both finish up with 11 weeks in the top 40.

Are there any other examples of two songs with oddly similar chart trajectories, especially songs that charted lower down - but obviously not stuff which went 20-OUT, more like songs that were top 40 for a while perhaps.

Was also wondering what No.1s followed a very similar path up or down the chart over the years.

I pointed this out at the time but Despacito and Savage Love had the exact same trajectory to number one within the top 40: 22-4-1

Sigma's Nobody to Love and Kiesza's Hideaway came out a week apart yet had very similar initial top 40 runs...!

1-2-3-4-5-7-11-18-19-24-26-31-31-32-33-39 [Nobody to Love]
1-2-3-3-5-9-16-17-20-25-27-29-33-34-37-[41] [Hideaway]

Only two weeks where there was a difference of more than 2 places! It differed more after that and Hideaway re-entered a couple of times but I always found that trajectory very interesting.

Even if we account for Hideaway coming out a week later:

01-02-03-04-05-07-11-18-19-24-26-31-31-32-33-39 [Nobody to Love]
00-01-02-03-03-05-09-16-17-20-25-27-29-33-34-37 [Hideaway]

Still only two weeks of more than 2 places between them...!

I wanted to check but Polyhex is down! Yeah from memory it did hold up quite well in the top 20 but fell out of the top 10 very quickly. Think over half its weeks in the top 10 were at #1 in fact and this was pre-ACR days of course.

Jason Derulo - Want To Want Me - (46 Weeks) 06/06/2015 -{1}-1-1-1-3-8-15-12-16-13-16-15-14-18-22-28-32-31-33-36-37-41-44-42-54-67-76-81-65-78-79-63-65-86-91-76-78-72-82-91-96-91-88-97-94-x(2)-86


I don't think it fell very quickly at all. Seventeen weeks Top 40 after dropping down from Number One.

Iím sure there are loads that I canít think of off the top of my head but hereís one:
Jaimeson had 2 #4 hits in 2003 with eerily similar chart runs:
True 4-9-14-19-25-34
Complete 4-7-12-17-26-33
The other interesting thing was that, despite the almost identical runs and there only being 6 months between the 2 hits, True had sold 80k by the end of the year and Complete only 58k. Thatís how badly the market was in free fall at that time.

are you confusing WTWM with Don't Wanna Go Home?

for a multi-week #1 it had a rather poor run, 5 weeks in the top 10, but only an additional 3 in the top 40

1-1-5-6-7-15-23-27-41-46-60-70-88-83-90-x-92-x

Roll Deep - Good Times likewise, 5 weeks top 10, 8 weeks top 40

1-1-1-3-9-14-30-37-41-46-57-52-56-68-65-83-80-99-x

Wow! Those are great examples, especially the trio from 2008 ohmy.gif

Oasis and Cheryl too as those are quite freefalling runs to have the same first five weeks!

And Sydney ended up no.13 in the EOY chart for 1989 as by far the highest peaking no.3 (Technotronic was highest no.2 at 8 in the EOY). Both peaked behind the year biggest single Black Box.
