CHART LOG
Symbol Explanations
sTop Ten Hit j Number One hit.
± Indicates that the record probably sold more than 250K. Only used on unsorted charts.
Unsorted chart hits will have no position, but if they are black in colour than the record made the Real Chart. Green coloured records might not
have made the Real Chart. The same applies to the red coulered hits, these are known to have made the USA charts, so could have been
released in the UK, or imported here.

Date of Entry
The Charts were produced on a Sunday and the sales were from the previous seven days, with
the exception of Christmas when no chart was produced. All sales from that week was carried
over to the first chart of the new year. There are some Christmas period charts however, due to
very high sales. The week beginning dates is used throughout and not the week ending one.
So a date of 12 Jun 60 covers sales 5/6/60 to 11/6/60. The week ending would thus be for this
chart 18/6/60.
¹ Still in the chart after 19/12/99. Those with this symbol may not have achieved their highest
position and not have a full sales total, plus it wont have completed its chart life. Subsequent
years have been added, but as yet these overrun tracks have not been updated.

Sales System
8 Indicates sales of 250,000 to 499,999 copies sold while in the chart only.
¨ Indicates sales of 500,000 to 999,999 copies sold while in the chart only.
u Indicates sales of 1,000,000 copies sold while in the chart only. Another symbol will be
added for each subsequent 1,000,000 copies sold. No indication is shown for sales inbetween
each million copies sold after the first.
Ý This with one of the above sales symbols indicates accumulative sales from previous and
present entry (re-entries only). Note not fully employed.
Sales symbols of some hits before the nineties are not included, due to the data not being
processed yet.
The B.P.I. system of metal disc sales should not be confused with the above system of sales.
Having said that the above sales measures where used in the seventies, by the B.P.I., though
anyone can have a ‘metal’ disc done for any number of sales quite legally. The lower category
of B.P.I. sales (200,000) does not apply here. Of course this does not mean that a record did
not sell that figure and acts should not be disappointed if that is the case. All other B.P.I.
categories are covered by the above.

become a problem, since each track can sometimes be released as a separate download.
However if it is known that a track is being released on 'hard copy' as a AA side, then the
tracks will be grouped as one, or as soon as known.
For the above reasons many remixed songs are listed as re-entries, however if the title is
altered to reflect the remix it will be listed as would a new song by the act. This does not apply
to records still in the chart and the sales of the mix would be added to the track in the chart.
This may push singles back up the chart or keep them around for longer, nevertheless the
chart is a sales chart and NOT a popularity chart on people’s favourite songs or acts. Due to
encryption decoding errors some artists/titles may be spelt wrong, I apologise for any
inconvenience this may cause.
The chart statistics were compiled only from sales of SINGLES each week. Not only that but
every single sale no matter where it occurred! Format rules, used by other charts, where
unnecessary and therefore ignored, so you will see EP’s that charted and other strange
records selling more than other charts. Bear in mind that some singles were not released in
Britain and as long as they were classed as SINGLES they count if sold here. Many pirated
singles were bought by the public and they have been counted along with the rest. Unless
they didn't work! Cassette Singles were easy to copy and you wouldn’t know the difference if it
was copied on to cassette from CD. This Chart counted them. After all a sale is a sale no
matter who buys it, well not really if it’s bought by the record company that’s a cheat, so this
chart ignored them and also stolen copies from the shops. Copying is illegal and it’s killing the
Music Industry, and it’s growing from 1997 the REAL CHART started counting more fake
(home made in some cases) CD singles being sold to other people. It detected vast sales of
so-called limited edition ones too! Then there are records which should not even be in the
shops still being sold. Illegal downloads count too, but only if the occur a fee (even if it is
hidden). FREE downloads again do not count, nor does streamed music, or Radio Airplay.
Karaoke tracks are generally excluded. And spoken word is never included, unless it over
music and could be classed as a music track.

Chart dates
The compilers did the first chart on Sunday the 11 January 1948 it also included the sales for
the 4 January too! It was a top 40 and was only 78 rpm records at that time. It stayed a top 40
till 3 January 1960 when it became a top 100 and has stayed that way since. It's interesting to
note that the 3/1/60 top 100 only included sales for the previous 7 days and top 40 sales
figures for the missing week. This was to balance out the top 40 in the new top 100 and not
allow the outsiders (of the top 40 in the missing week) of the previous week a boost into the
40, due to two weeks sales.

Artist information
Most of the information comes from Google or Wikipedia.

Format
Record company labels and numbers are not listed. This is because the original recording
released in the U.K. may not be the one that was sold in some cases and it would be
misleading to list, say, the CD number, when the track may have sold more on cassette. No
format rules apply and all types were included from the point of first sales and until they
became obsolete, such as the 78! Since the emergence of downloads the AA single has

I would like to thank the following:
Record Mirror, Music Week, Smash Hits, Number One, Melody Maker, N.M.E., Music papers,
who have made it easier to comply these chart logs (mostly spelling names).
Special thanks to the chart compilers themselves, for giving me solo access to the chart
information and letting me explain the system they use.
