I thought for sure Three Dog Night would be in the top 5 for the 70's

They don't even make it to the top 50 of the 70s. You can see why on their artist page, first while they had success in the USA they didn't do well elsewhere, secondly their period of greatest success straddled the 60s and 70s.

If we were to list the top acts of 1965-1974 they would be about 57th

T.rex

Hello there, When I was thirteen, I can remember that marc bolan was sellingloads of records, through 1971 and was in the charts for more weeks than any other artist during 1972.Surprising that he failed to make the chart

Cheers,Mart,

This listing is for worldwide success over the whole 1970s,

Stevie Wonder

Did you miss Stevie Wonder, or did he not do good worldwide?

Stevie Wonder was the 31st artist of all time, the 25th artist of the 1970s and the 4th artist of 1973.

Bee Gees not on list?

I am baffled by the Bee Gees omission during the decade of the 70's. For four years no one could touch their numbers.

We are baffled by your bafflement. The Bee Gees are number 6 in the list of artists of the 1970s (look at the 1970s page). Elton John, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Abba and Led Zeppelin all had more hits (especially when albums are taken into account).

Four years is less than half the decade

Changing chart positions

Why does the order in your charts, such as this one, keep changing? For example, a few months a ago, 'You're The One That I Want' was No.1 for the 70s. A few weeks ago, 'Stayin Alive' was No.1. Now, 'Let It Be' is No. 1. Why is this?

There are two different reasons why the order has changed. First of all as corrections are made the order changes, for example if the different charts have a song credited to "Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya & Pink" on one charts and "Christina Aguilera, Mya & Pink" on another then when the entry is fixed the result will be that the song changes position in the charts.

However the reason for the particular change you mention is because the way the scores are calculated was changed. The issue was that the results were being clearly distorted for periods where there happened to be a lot of charts. After much debate and trying different ways to overcome this distortion we found a compramise that we felt delivered better results.

That is why the version number changed from the 1.10 series to the 2.0 one.

Little Richard's Albums

I'm really pleased to access this chart on Little Richard. I wonder if you have any album positions for Richard; also R & B/Black positions? Thank you very much, Phil

Little Richard was active in an era when albums were less important than singles, as a result he has fewer albums that made it into the charts than one might expect.

Because he is not in the top 1000 album artists we don't have a seperate page listing his albums. In the 1.9.0083 data we have the following four album entries:

Here's Little Richard: "RYM 4 of 1957, US BB 39 of 1957, Rolling Stone 50, Acclaimed 382 (1957)"

Little Richard: "RYM 8 of 1958"

The Fabulous Little Richard: "RYM 47 of 1959"

Little Richard Vol. 2: "Acclaimed 2958 (1958)"

Extended Tables

Hi there...

Is there any possiblity for you to extend the tables by decade?

Mainly since the 60's... As it is (100) don't you feel like some other hits are missing? I Know they aren't but i just miss them in the chart! :) Thanks for your great Work!

We could extend the number of entries in the decade charts, but that would make the pages always take longer to load and most users are, we think, only interested in the top few songs anyway.

However, you can, of course, work out the decade positions from our CSV file with any spreadsheet program. For example in Excel load the file, add a decade column by setting cell N2 as "=INT(D2/10)*10" then copy that cell for all the N column and sort by type, decade and score (high to low).

This is why we supply the CSV file, not only can you work out which song was number 200 of the sixties but you can try out all sorts of different ways to analyse the data. If you find anything interesting tell us about it.
