More Trivia from My Music Charts


Highest Debuts on the Singles Charts

I maintained my Top Ten Singles chart under real-time rules when I first compiled it in 1983, meaning that a song’s chart run began upon the week of its release. If it took six weeks after its release before it appeared in my top ten, then its number of accumulated weeks on its first chart appearance would be six [1]. I introduced several chart reforms in January 1993, one of which was to eliminate this particular “weeks on chart” feature, which had often left me making educated guesses about the release dates for foreign singles. I adopted an easier policy of counting a single’s weeks on chart from its first literal appearance on my chart, regardless of how many weeks it may have been in general release. Thus a single that had been around for months would now start its top ten run with a weeks on chart total of one.

In the early years my chart modelled the American Billboard where it was it was uncommon for a single to appear in the top ten after fewer than five weeks in general release. There were exceptions to this, of course, as I was free to place whatever singles I wanted into my own chart, after all. I did have rules, though, and while there were some songs that entered my top ten after being out for only two or three weeks, a song that spent its first week in release in my top ten, what I termed a “pure debut”, was rare. These were songs that did not leap into the top ten from an outside position; they started off their chart runs within the top ten.

There are good reasons for all of my chart’s top ten pure debuts. Five the singles were by major artists whose albums were fuelled by later hit singles, so the momentum was mounting when these later songs were released. The remaining three top ten debuts were by artists whose singles were released under exceptional circumstances such as the first new material from my favourite recording artists of all time, the Beatles and John Lennon, or a commemorative single released after the death of the Princess of Wales.

On Billboard, The Beatles held the record for having the highest Hot 100 debut, when “Let It Be” entered the chart at #6 on March 21, 1970. Their record held for twenty-five years until “Scream” by Michael Jackson & Janet Jackson entered at #5 on June 17, 1995.

In seventeen and a half years of compiling a weekly Top Ten Singles chart, 1163 singles made an appearance. Only eight had pure debuts within the top ten:

Debut Position–Song title–Artist (Peak Position) Date of debut

1–Free As A Bird–The Beatles (1) December 9, 1995
1–Candle In The Wind 1997–Elton John (1) September 20, 1997
2–ray of light–Madonna (1) May 2, 1998
4–Drowned World/Substitute for Love–Madonna (3) August 29, 1998
7–Nobody Told Me–John Lennon (1) January 14, 1984
7–Radio Song–R.E.M. (4) November 23, 1991
9–Bitter Tears–INXS (2) April 6, 1991
10–I Like–Men Without Hats (2) October 29, 1983

Highest Debuts on the Albums Charts

Top ten pure debuts were more common on the albums charts.

Debut Position–Album title–Artist (Peak Position) Date of debut

1–Bad–Michael Jackson (1) September 5, 1987
1–Waking Up the Neighbours–Bryan Adams (1) September 28, 1991
1–Dangerous–Michael Jackson (1) November 30, 1991
1–Erotica–Madonna (1) October 24, 1992
3–Pipes of Peace–Paul McCartney (1) November 12, 1983
4–Say Say Say–Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson (1) November 5, 1983
4–Tunnel of Love–Bruce Springsteen (1) October 10, 1987
6–John Lennon Live in New York City–John Lennon (1) March 1, 1986
7–Like a Prayer–Madonna (1) March 25, 1989
7–Achtung Baby–U2 (1) November 23, 1991
8–Rattle and Hum–U2 (1) October 15, 1988
8–Big Thing–Duranduran (1) October 29, 1988
8–I’m Breathless–Madonna (1) May 26, 1990
9–Give My Regards to Broad Street–Paul McCartney (1) October 27, 1984
10–Seven and the Ragged Tiger–Duran Duran (3) November 26, 1983
10–Discography–Pet Shop Boys (4) November 16, 1991

After my chart reforms which went into effect in January 1993 I ceased to record any prior week positions for new entries. Thus new entries, whether older titles or pure top ten debuts, looked the same upon their first week on the chart. I will not list any new entries to my top ten albums charts after January 1993, as I find filtering out pure debuts from other new entries an impossible task.

Greatest Leaps into the Top Ten Singles Charts

I compile this category with an added sense of subjectivity since, at least in my eyes, leaps into the top ten are more dramatic if they are to higher positions versus those leaps that are to the lower rungs of the chart. In other words, a leap of eleven positions from 12 to 1 is more remarkable than a thirteen-position leap from 23 to 10. Thus I will restrict leaps to fifteen positions or more unless they are to the upper regions of the chart.

Diana Princess of Wales Tribute–Various Artists (2-2-1-5-7-10)

Three albums reached #1 in late November and December 2003, and I ceased to compile a chart after that. These three albums therefore never had a chance to accumulate longer chart runs:

Let It Be… Naked–The Beatles had a chart run of only 5 weeks
Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas–Ella Fitzgerald had accumulated 4 weeks over two holiday chart runs
Now That’s What I Call Christmas 2! The Signature Collection–Various Artists had a chart run of only 4 weeks

Top Ten Greatest Hits Albums that Predate Any Top Ten Hits

I noted that sometimes I charted greatest hits collections by artists who by the time of their appearance hadn’t yet scored any top ten hits. The majority of these cases involved (sometimes catalogue) greatest hits albums that had been released, usually on CD, for the first time. Posthumous popularity of an artist can also propel a greatest hits album into the top ten. Other occurrences involved artists with active release rosters who charted no top ten hits prior to their greatest hits album. These artists may have had subsequent top ten hits, however.

(a) = (catalogue) greatest hits album released, usually on CD, for the first time
(b) = posthumous popularity
(c) = active artist with no prior top ten hits

Featured or Secondary Artist Credits

Artists who have primary billing are easy to find in indexes. It is the artists who are second, third, or even fourth on the bill who are most elusive. If any of these artists hadn’t released singles in their own right as lead artists, they remain permanently attached to someone else’s label credit. Whenever I get around to compiling a complete history of my singles and albums charts I intend to filter out all of these featured or secondary artists and index them. In label credits such as Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson or Aretha Franklin and George Michael, each of the artists credited in second position has released numerous chart hits on his own. Their work with the lead artists would be indexed along with their own solo material. However over the course of 17½ years of compiling a singles chart and a full twenty years for an albums chart, there have been numerous occasions where an artist’s sole appearance was as a featured label credit, and nothing more. In these cases I don’t believe that artists billed this way should get their own full artist category. I would include their name in the artist index yet provide a cross-reference to the lead artist. Thus in the case with Paul McCartney and the Frog Chorus, I would index the Frog Chorus, yet provide a see reference to Paul McCartney

I do not list artists who are always credited as a composite entity, such as Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam or Mike + the Mechanics. Thus neither Cult Jam nor the Mechanics will have its own entry in the index. 

Here are all the artists, listed alphabetically, whose sole appearance on my charts was in a featured or secondary role, followed by their complete artist credit. Artists whose feature credit was on an album are marked with * :

[1] I prorated all accumulated weeks on chart for singles and albums when I compiled my chart statistics.

[2] Ode to a Koala Bear is the B-side to Say Say Say.

[3] Again Together is the B-side to I’ll Be Laughing.

[4] Vertigo (Do the Demolition) is the B-side to «Meet El Presidente».

[5] Winged Mammal Theme is the B-side to Drive.

[6] A Christmas album. It would have fallen right out of the top ten if I hadn’t played it after Christmas.

[7] My chart recorded the albums exactly as their titles were rendered on their labels, not on their LP sleeves or CD or cassette booklets. In many cases there were inconsistencies between packaging and labelling or between different audio formats. In some cases there were mistakes, such as with this title, whose error-free title is actually called Standing On A Beach The Singles for the enhanced cassette edition, which is the version I charted.
