Very impressive as it has amassed 100 weeks in only 2 chart runs with only 2 weeks off the chart before re-entering.

How many chart runs have each of the top 20 had?

I missed that 'Perfect' had also surpassed 'Chasing Cars'. Good. x (And it really doesn't feel like it was that long ago that 'Mr. Brightside' took the lead but it's now more than 100 weeks ahead of it, time flies)

Has anything managed 100 consecutive weeks? Blinding Lights will do that before being knocked out in the Christmas rush.

Blinding Lights will almost certainly become the first to reach 100 weeks while on its first chart run by the end of October - unless The Weeknd drops a surprise album which gets it starred out before then.

It could well be the 21st to cross the line, although Shape Of You is on 98 weeks and looks to have narrowly missed the Top 100 this week and last.

How many weeks did Chasing Cars potentially lose though from being inelligible when the chart rules allowed labels to 'strike out' their releases, before the rules changed again at new year and allowed all the struck out songs back in? Would it be enough weeks that it could potentially have still been on top otherwise?

Chasing Cars was ineligible for 7 weeks, so even with these included it would still be some distance behind Perfect (and Mr Brightside) by now.
However it would have then stayed 112 consecutive weeks in the Top 100, which would still be the record as things stand.

Perfect has also lost weeks due to the three track rule I imagine

Third, it had a single week at #100 a little while ahead of the start of its 'main' run.

One of my friends asked me to put this on in the car the other day and I raised my voice, raised my finger and said "NOT IN THIS CAR."

I got so fed up with Dance Monkey, but now its only played now and again it has regained some of its appeal.

The music video remains unwatchable though.

I believe by the Autumn Tones will have overtaken Mariah to have the biggest female solo single ever. Then Mariah will re-overtake obviously.
