Thank God we don't have radio airplay in the UK charts - far more bland than the actual EoY charts. And 'Head and Heart' no.5 - change the record.

midnight sky slaying 6 months after release

Olivia was really underwhelming with airplay, Good 4 U and Drivers License are low considering how huge both songs were and the fact DejaVu didn't even make it either, she truly overachieved.

I thought Pink might be high as it’s been in the top 50 all year, must be the lowest peaking single on that chart?

Three Weeknd tracks in the top 20😍

Yeah it's a relief that airplay doesn't count to the chart! Not at all surprised to see All I Know So Far in the top ten here, some stations really have been hammering it despite it only having one week in the top 40, same for One Too Many a bit lower down which coincidentally also has P!nk on it.

When You're Out is the lowest peaking song in the official chart from the list here, it never even reached the UK top 100!

Two songs by Pink and one by Rag 'n' Bone Man in the top 30, but the song which nearly made the official EOY top 100 for both of them only comes in at #90... Wellerman just scraping in at #99, expect about 99% of those plays were in the first 6 months of the year too laugh.gif

I don't think songs being overplayed for a long period should be a reason not to include airplay in the official chart - you could just implement rules along the lines of ACR to counteract that. There's plenty of new songs in the weekly chart as well, obviously mostly ones played on Radio 1 and 2.

God that's such a BLAND top 10. To repeat others, thank f**k what radio arbitrarily decide to play has no impact on the UK chart.

(Other than obviously the indirect result of people buying/streaming what they hear on the radio but that's not really the point)

I always find it interesting to compare radio airplay charts against sales charts... do we know how many radio stations this covers? Is it only the big few or is every little local radio station also included?

It covers 490 radio stations across the UK, which represents at least 99.7% of all radio audiences.
