(2) Double Listings

#5 & #11 are the same (This Time: The First Four Years). Also #7 & #8 are the same (At Worst-The Best Of).

The first is obviously right. The second is more difficult, it seems to us that the French listing is the same, but the UK listing isn't (it claims that what it calls "The Best Of Culture Club" was released in 2005)

Thanks for the suggestion

Boy George+

Do you happen to have an idea what songs Boy George did Solo that charted in the UK, i was hoping that you had one done for him. I saw the complete Culture Club and was amazed by the chart figures you all found. I was looking for The Crying Game and Everything I Own by Boy George

In the list of all song artists Boy George is at position 1037, so he only just misses the 1000th position cut-off. That does mean that we don't have a special artist page for him.

We do, of course, have all the data. Given the limitations imposed on messages and replies we can't make it look pretty, but here it is:
