Select the year you want, followed by the month within that year on the next page then you will be able to see which songs were number one for each day of that month in the various countries covered. The data shown represents all the information we currently have available, if you want number ones from before , or for different countries we recommend that you follow the source data links yourself.
The issues with defining which charts to use, which entries fall into each chart and how to treat double-A side records made us feel that listing number ones was not a worthwhile effort, however the number of users who request such data has convinced us to offer this set of pages.
We quite often get requests to find out which song was number one on a particular day. There are a number of obvious comments:. Given the range of countries that we have gathered information for we can answer some questions about number ones. Looking at the proportion of time that each artist was number one in at least one of our target countries gives yet another measure of the relative success that various acts enjoyed.
If we work out what proportion of each decade they spent in the number one song slot we get this listing:. The s and s are biased in two different ways, firstly there are fewer charts so acts are liable to spend less time at number one and secondly the charts that existed were less dynamic so acts spent longer in the top slot. We have assumed these factors just about cancel each other out.
Another interesting metric is to look at how long a particular artist managed to remain at number one in at least one of these countries. This shows artists that were globally popular with multiple songs released in quick succession. Here are all the artists that managed at least 75 days of being number one somewhere:. The Beatles and Bing Crosby both managed more than day stints twice The Beatles narrowly missed out on managing three stretches because of a two day gap in Mar Having failed to tell us your date of birth you are a level beyond even those that fail to read any of the text on the page.
Since that date is two months in the future the answer is "no one knows". I don't care what position on the charts, or which chart you use As long asit's a real chart list, not RYM or DDD Just has to be started charting on or Near-before that day.
Have a look at the year chart. Any of the top 20 there would fit your criteria. The listing of which charts should give you enough info to select. For example, Count Basie's "One O'Clock Jump" would be a valid candidate except you may reject it because it relies on recent assessments such as the "Grammy Hall of Fame" and "Library of Congress" listings. Of course you may see those as supporting it.
By the time you are 50 you really ought to be able to follow simple instructions read the page. Did Joe Dolan really has legend would have it, make 1 in fourteen European countries? So being number one on 14 European countries is unlikely. We sometimes think that people who ask stupid questions like what was number one on a particular date, without specifying the country or chart are being deliberately stupid.
Really, you're 15 and not able to follow simple instructions? Read what it says in the text. What an odd question. Our guess is that more than , songs and albums are released in North America and Europe each year so that means about are released on any given day, we won't list them here. Oh and by the way the film "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" was released that day too. If that doesn't answer your question why not try A actually reading what this page says, B pose better questions. Also the same for 1st of april By following the instructions at the top of this page I can tell you that on the 11th Jul Edith Piaf was number 1 in Germany with "Milord".
If, alternately, you want to know what was number 1 ijn the USA on Nov 7 you will have to follow the instructions yourself. I was born in Canberra on 27th April What was the Australian No 1 at that time please? We don't list any music for this year, its too likely to need correcting later. You can navigate to Nov with the dates at the top of the month pages. We would suggest you look at the sources on Wikipedia that are listed at the foot of each month's page. If you are looking for charts since the year there are some sites that provide that.
If you want side by side charts from before that we suspect you are out of luck. We find it hard enough to create charts that gather the information and consolidate by year. The sources for various charts are listed on the "Source Charts" page, you could try and create such a resource yourself.
Follow the year link at the top of this page, then select the month you want on the third row of the next page. Your considerate and respectful approach do your country proud. I can't see where the reputation of Australians as rude and crass comes from. We don't have any Japanese charts from before If you find any we'd like to add them. We don't know, that's not the kind of data we keep too recent and specific. In US,, UK,,?? I was born on june 13 Find a site that delivers that service or look in Wikipedia, all the links you need are listed here and on the "Source Charts" page.
As it explains on the chart listing we don't have any information for Spain between and There are a number of number 1 lists on Wikipedia, you could start there. The "Song Charts" page lists the sources of most of the charts we have here, going through those would add some extra ones. Thanks xx. We don't keep records of the current year, because it is hard to know if current songs have reached their peak and the number of weeks changes too frequently. That site is usually reliable and claims that the song you are looking for is "The climb" by Joe McElderry.
