Oh so they have, why on earth? At least One and One makes the top 20 in this version of events, I'm distinctly less happy that Virtual Insanity is kicked out.

It's all to do with the data used- this is DUS sales rather than panel sales and hence the difference. There were more shops in the DUS in the final quarter of the year so songs released late in the year have done better on this version.

it would look a lot better if artists with these words were omitted:

son, bird, rich, wool, plus charity tracks which people buy for the cause not the music. teresa.gif

96 had so many great songs, love how indie/dance went huge and how Prodigy or Chemical bros could get to #1

Fav songs on the list are the 2 Prodigy singles, the 2 Robert Miles singles, the 2 Fugees tracks, Oasis, Insomnia and Born Slippy.

Back in 2007 the OCC used to list the ten best selling singles of each year on their website. Thats why the top ten part is the same on the list from Haven.
