I am looking for a particular song, how can I find it?

Search this site with Google

This site lists all the songs that were major hits 1900-2007. If you are trying to find, for example, hits that are connected to a particular word then the index here is the best place to look. This index links to every place where a name is used anywhere on the site, there are also seperate lists of the years, artists and song titles that have their own individual pages.

To locate any word first select the link below that represents the initial letter, then select the sub-pages whose range covers the word you want.

# | 0-9 | a | b | c | d | e | f | g | h | i | j | k | l | m | n | o | p | q | r | s | t | u | v | w | x | y | z

Suppose, for example, you want to identify songs, albums and artists connected with "Stripes". Looking under the "S" entry above leads to a page that lists entries with the word "Stripes":

Alternately suppose you are looking for songs by Amy Winehouse, as a recent visitor was. Well lets look up her surname, selecting "w" in the list above leads to a page that lists the word ranges that start with "w" we pick "Wildw - Wit'c", since "Winehouse" is in that range. Looking in the list we find an entry:

Winehouse - Album Artist: Top Albums, Top Album Artists, 2006, 2007, Album greatest, Album sales, Amy Winehouse
Song Artist: 2007, 2008

This tells us that she has more entries for albums than for songs, she is on the "Top 1000 Albums" page, the "Top 1000 Albums Artists", the list of hit albums for 2006 and 2007, the "Most successful albums of all time" page, the "Biggest selling albums" page and she has her own page listing albums.

From the viewpoint of songs she has not done so well, she only appears on the top songs page for 2007 and 2008 and is not in the top 1000 song artists

What if it was not a major hit?

If the track you are searching for was not a major hit then this is not the right location to be looking (this is a charts site after all). When we are looking for the exact name of an artist, song or album we usually use the search facilities on the following sites:

  • www.wikipedia.org/: Has lots of music based articles, accuracy and objectivity are often issues, but provides an invaluable collection of links to other sites
  • www.amazon.com/ / www.amazon.co.uk/: Many of the most obscure albums are available for purchase
  • rateyourmusic.com/: A music rating site, worth checking
  • musicbrainz.org/: An online database of CDs, the spelling is not to be trusted but the track listing is usually OK
  • www.discogs.com/: We don't use it much but it has a good reputation
  • www.freedb.org/: The names are often wrong and searching is a pain but sometimes this is the only source
  • www.davesmusicdatabase.com/: Not used this much, and it seems to be fairly small, but when it has an entry the level of detail is great
  • www.ebay.com/ / www.ebay.co.uk/: A last resort

What if I know the lyrics

Searching for a song when you know the lyrics is really easy. Just select a distinct phrase from the text you have and enter it into Google. You will usually get a large number of lyric sites (which often have way too many adverts). These will tell you the name of the artist and track that you can research on the sites listed above.

If your first phrase doesn't work then pick another. Remember also that the right site could be on the second or third page of Google results.

What song was number 1 on...

If you want to discover which song was number one on a particular date (usually a date of birth) this is not the best place to look. The first thing you must do is decide where, the number one song in the US is almost always different from the number one in Europe or Japan. Then you must decide which source to use, in the US for example the Billboard number one is usually different from the CashBox magazine one. The Wikipedia page en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Number-on e_singles has lots of links to lists of number one records in different locations and for different time periods.

Finally you should accept that there are some locations and periods for which there really isn't enough data to pick a number one record for a particular date, for example the UK before 1950 or anywhere (including the US) before 1940.

The chorus ends with Je t'aime but the song is in english. It's an oldie

The obvious candidate would be "Je T'Aime (Moi Non Plus)" by Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg. But if you search for "Je T'Aime" in the search box you'll get a lot of other candidates

The song has theses words, I know I've got the prettiest girl, That can't be beat. All the guys make big eyes, as she goes down the street. She's 5 foot 2, with eyes of blue, And hair a loving brown. She'd make a freight train jump the track And turn right upside down.

Two songs I find too time-consuming to identify

Hi, I don't think these are big hits but lately I've been trying to identify an electronic/techno song which has the phrase 'all you need is' which may have been around in 2005/2006 and a reggae/hip hip song probably in 2007 which has the lyric that goes something like 'cos the sun sets down to the streets tonight/and I' in the chorus. I don't have the patience to look through all results in a lyric site and it's even more complicated trying to rely on google/bing especially as I cannot distinguish the artists/producers for these tracks. It's driving me crazy because when I find a track that I think might be one of them and I listen to it, it does not turn out to be the one I'm looking for. So some help would be greatly appreciated, Hayley x

An older song i've been searching for sooo long! Help ^^

Hey! I've been seraching this song for sooo many years and i can't find it. I heard it about 10-15 years ago on some show on the tv. It was a boy band, not very known i think. Or not very known for me.. I think they were 3 of them. And if i remember corectly, they started the song with something like:

+(something) for the hip hop boys!

and then a part of the song i remember:

+...i know it's gonna be better cause she's allways there, forever by my side, until the end of time. Chorus: When i look in her eyes i know they won't tell a lie/ any lies.. (something).. is that familliar to anyone?

The "Hip Hop Boyz" (note the Z) had a hit in France in 1998 with "Stop The Rain", possibly?

songs that didnt make the charts

Hi, I have been searching a song I heard many years ago but do not remember the title. I know it was in the early 1970's,but After going through lists of 200 songs that were released as "Singles" for each year, It dawned on me that the song I heard might have gotten airplay but never made the charts at all or was an album cut only. There does not seem to be a list anywhere of "songs that got airplay but never made the charts" or "All songs released" by year.

Do such lists exist?

Thanks for your help ALex

You could try "rateyourmusic.com" or "discogs"

RnB 90' song

I'm looking for a song i dont remember anything about except the video clip.It came out in the late 90', early 2000'. I think it's a rnb song sung by 2 women (I think). They're african american. In the clip you see the harsh life of some people and then you see how it gets better (a girl is about to being evicted but some guy give her some money anonimously) you also see the women singing on the hood of a car stuck in a trafic jam (in New york I think). everybody comes out of their cars to dance (?) in the street. I think it even starts raining. You often see a butterfly. That's all i can remember. I remember watching MTV when I was around 9 and this song kept showing multiples times a day. thanks

Need help finding a song, have partial band name and partial video description

The band has the name 'Mary' in it, and it's not Secrn Mary Three. The song was a hit in the early 2000's. Part of the video has a girl climbing up a ladder or something on the side of the stage and then falling back into the crowd and then crowd surfing.

There are many acts with a person named Mary, such as "Daniel O'Donnell & Mary Duff". And some groups whose names suggest the same like "Judy & Mary"

In the era you suggest we can find the following groups "Crazy Mary", "Jesus & Mary Chain", "Proud Mary", "Seven Mary Three" and "The Mary Onettes".

There's also a suggestion (from Paul) that this could be 30 Seconds To Mars doing "Buddha For Mary"

I don't know his name. +I think he has an afro hairstyle or very curly dark hair and I think he had a moustache. + I was very young at the time and loved the song. +

On this site songs from the 1980s don't count as "old"

Relatively new, it came out maybe 2 - 5 years ago. The girl singing is very pretty and has a great voice.

Shirley Temple songs

The other day a song popped into my mind from many years ago. I wanted to sing it to my grandchildren but I can't remember after the first verse or the title. I think it was from one of Shirley Temple's movies. It goes," I don't want to play in your yard, I don't like you anymore. You'll be sorry when you see me Sliding down my cellar door......" then it talks about a "rain barrel" and not wanting them to come to their house. It was a catchy and cute little song. I used to sing all those catchy little funny songs such as "Doing what comes naturally." Fuedin', a fightin' and a fussin', and all the songs from Shirley Temple movies. Those were happy days!

electronica track from the '90s

I am looking for a song that (I believe) is called "Faces". I have no idea who it is by. The song is kind of ambient/chill. Some of the vocal samples include a woman singing "your face, your face, your face". There are other samples such as, "happy face", "sad face", "scared face", etc. and another sample saying "welcome to heaven" three times, then "welcome to hell". I know this is totally obscure, but it is all I can remember of the track. If anyone can help, that would be incredible.

Songs called "Faces" in the lists: 2 Unlimited "Faces" (1993) - Nonworkinggeneration "Faces" (2006) - Run DMC "Faces" (1991)

Finnish group/artist?: sung in English

I'm looking for a song by a non-US artist (I think Finnish, or less likely Welsh), but the only information I recall is from the video. It is sung in English, filmed in dim light, with lots of brushes on drums in the music. The lead singer is blonde. I believe the title includes the words "the universe" but searches with "under the universe" "among the universe" etc. bring up no hits, aside from the Beatles.

Any ideas?

Try searching for "Universe" in the search box on this page (or look in the index).

Of course it could also be a less widely successful song, such as The Soup Dragons "Mother Universe" from 1990.

French Song 1988

I'm looking for a French pop song that was played on the radio in September 1988, sung by a female and had words similar to the following..... "Voulez toucher le soleil...."

We're not familiar with it, maybe another user has a clue?

Mt. Etna

I have been trying to find the name and artist of a song I listened to back in the 1970's. It is a love song about the eruption of Mt. Etna and the Isle of Sicily. I have been looking for days, no luck.

No idea, maybe another user will know it

Bullseye

bullseye/center of my heart

You said "We believe the song you are seeking is 'Bullseye' by the US based group Lakeside. Released in 1987 despite reaching 33 in the R&B charts it never broke into the Billboard 100"

No, the Lakeside song is not the same song. The Bullseye song we're lookingfor is fast paced and sung by a woman.

songs I am trying to purchase

I am trying to buy "I am catching hell" by Betty Wright and "I want to write a love song" David Oliver

This site only lists hit charts, it has no music to sell.

You might try iTunes or Amazon's mp3 store.

As far as we can see Betty Wright never had a hit with that song and David Oliver never had a hit at all.

Billboard before 1940

Where do you find charts from the US Billboard singles chart previous to 1940? Thanks.

The sources for all our data are listed on the "Song Charts" page, linked at the top right of every page. That will show you where the spreadsheet file containing the chart you are after can be downloaded.

looking for all the number 9 chart positiions can you help please

Looking for all the number 9 chart positiions can you help please

The first thing to say is that we list positions from a large number of charts, if you want data from a particular chart you'd find it easier to get that data direct. For example, you just wanted the songs that reached number 9 in the billboard charts then you'd find it easier to use the "Bullfrog" listing (see the "Source Charts" page to see how where to get it). Then you can use a spreadsheet program to identify entries that reached the number 9 slot.

The easiest way to do any calculation is to download the CSV file (from the page that describes the version numbers).

Its not clear if you are looking for the number 9 positions in our annual charts, or for songs that reached number 9 in one of the source charts.

If you load the CSV file into a spreadsheet you should be able to filter on the "year_pos" attribute and select just the songs with 9 in that column.

Alternately if you're looking for songs that reached number 9 in the source charts we don't have the data to identify all songs that were at the number 9 position at some time in their run, but we can tell you which songs peaked at number 9.

The easiest way to do this calculation is to search the CSV file for the a string " 9 ". For example on Linux (or CygWin) the command:

grep ' 9 ' tsort-chart-1-10-0003.csv

will list all the songs that peaked at number 9 anywhere. Alternately the command:

grep 'Holland 9 -' tsort-chart-1-10-0003.csv | grep " 197[3-7]"

will identify all the songs that peaked at number 9 in Holland and then select only those which have years in the range 1973-1977.

Combining simple searches in this way can quickly identify songs, for example the command:

grep 'Holland 9 -' tsort-chart-1-10-0003.csv | grep -i london

shows that the only song which peaked at number 9 in Holland and mentioned London in the title was Ralph McTell's "Streets of London" from 1974. Of course we don't know why anyone would want to do that particular search.

Firefox search

Just wondering if there were any plans to create a Search Bar add-on for Firefox (Similar to those available for Wikipedia, Google, You Tube etc.)

It would be really handy :-)

We didn't have any plans to do that, but it sounds interesting.

If you know how to do it we'd be interested in hearing from you, in the meantime we'll look in to it.

Fantastic Resource

An absolutely fantastic resource for everything you could ever wish to know about music.

I was looking for a friend for a Billy Eckstine Track "Give me your word", to find what album it was from so he could download it; but appears, that he either has the track title wrong or the artist.

Thanks to your site i've emailed him a link to your site so he can search for whatever it is he's after.

Once again - A FANTASTIC EFFORT AND FANTASTIC SITE

Wikipedia

Hello, great site, currently used some of the chart info for wikipedia however some other contributors believe this site is not a valid source of chart positions. Any way I can prove this site is valid, what sources does this site use? Thanks.

All the charts used on the site are listed on the "Song Charts" page (or "Album Charts" page), most of them linked to original sources.

We have seen some places where people claim that the data quoted here is invalid. Usually such comments have come from sources that don't provide any better data and often claim that "my private data shows the tsort site is wrong" and then when asked refuse to share that data or say where it came from.

If anyone makes a constructive suggestion we will normally consider it. We can do little about the people on the internet that feel it is easier to criticise our site anonymously than to offer suggestions to us for how to improve it.

There are also fans of particular artists who believe it is valid to assert "your site says my artist had fewer hits than a rival, therefore it is wrong", there is little we can do (or wish to do) to break their self delusion.

We've not seen anyone on Wikipedia claim that our data is wrong and should not be used. If you know of a page where that is being claimed we'd like to know about it so we can contribute to the discussion. There are many Wikipedia pages that do use this data, anyone saying you shouldn't is, we suspect, in the minority.

Our position is that a link on each artist's Wikipedia discography page to the matching page here would be helpful to most Wikipedia users. Of course Wikipedia's "Conflict of Interests" rules mean that we wouldn't add such links ourselves.

Of course the suitability of this data for use on Wikipedia varies, for example the description of the "Global" chart explains why that data shouldn't be quoted there. The charts from Poland, France and Brazil should probably not be used, but the US, UK and Australian charts are definitely the best available.

Your web site.

bullseye/center of my heart

looking for the title of a dance song from the early 80's. Title was either Bull's eye or Center of my Heart. The Chorus went something like: You hit me with a bull's eye, a shot in the dark-right through the center of my heart" It's a really dancy fast paced song, sung by a woman. Any help would be great. Thanks!

We believe the song you are seeking is "Bullseye" by the US based group Lakeside. Released in 1987 despite reaching 33 in the R&B charts it never broke into the Billboard 100.

These entries look duplicates (v1.9.0047. Haven't checked if it was corrected in v67)

{List of more than 30 Corrections with artist name, title and year}

Wow, what an excelent list of potential corrections, a couple of the items had already been corrected. With one exception the remaining ones have now also been done.

The only one we didn't do was The Isley Brothers, you suggest that the 1964 song "Who's That Lady?" is the same as the 1973 song "That Lady". As you can see from the Wikipedia article at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/That_Lady,_Pt._1_%26_2 the story is a bit more complex. The underlying song is the same but the group deliberately gave it a different title when they re-recorded it in the 1970s. Its a tricky question but we have decided to keep the titles distinct.

The rest of your suggested changes are clearly correct. Finding these types of mismatches between charts is one of the most difficult tasks we have to perform, so your list is very welcome.

Thanks for the input

What was the no. 1 song on 27th Oct 1930 in England

Thanks, Doug Smith

The most widely accepted UK charts start on the 14 Nov 1952 (in the "New Musical Express"). There were some occasional sheet music charts going back to 1936, however there really are no UK charts from 1930.

number one song on Jan.28,1952

What was the number one song on Jan.28,1952?

The first question is "where?", for example in Australia the number 1 song was "Because of You" by Tony Bennett.

We suspect that you meant what was the number 1 song in the US.

So the next question would be "according to who?", there were no official charts published in the early 1950s, the closest would be some occasional charts published by Billboard magazine. Billboard produced a variety of different charts starting in 1936 these were finally consolidated in 1958 into the "Hot 100" which has been published ever since (although the way they are calculated has changed of course).

In 1952 the "Best Sellers in Stores" chart is probably the most representative one. In that chart the number 1 record was:

"Cry" by Johnnie Ray

In our list the song is listed under 1951 where is says "US 1 for 11 weeks - Dec 1951" which means it was the Billboard "Stores" number 1 for 11 weeks starting in December 1951

"If those lips could only speak" by Dermot Henry

Dermot Henry had a hit in Ireland and Australia with "If Those Lips could Only Speak" in late 1970/ early 1971. The stats are "Eire 1 for 1 week - Dec 1970, Australia Goset 31 - Aug 1971 (13 weeks)"

The song did not do well enough to be in the top 100 for that year, nor did Dermot Henry have enough success to have his own page on this site.

The song is refered to on Wikipedia, but does not yet have its own page there either.

a beautiful picture in a ....

Did you find the rest of the song? If so i would like a copy. Thanks.

We don't supply music, we list chart entries. As we said above the song was never a hit, anywhere, so that is why it is not listed here.

If you want to purchase music by Slim Dusty you can do so at your local Amazon, iTunes or a host of other sites, just search for "Slim Dusty"

old 1920s song sheet music and words

I am looking for an old song with the words;- it stood in a beautiful mansion surrounded by riches untold ............................... and hung in a frame of gold it was a picture of a lady so beautiful ,young and fair twas to that lifelike picture that he murmered in sad dispair if those lips could only speak if those eyes could only see if those beautiful golden tresses were ther in reality could i only take your hand as i did when you took my name but its only a beautiful picture in a beautiful golden frame

Finding a song when you know the lyrics is really easy. Just pick a unique sounding phrase, like "murmured in sad dispair" and seach for it in Google.

That will lead you to the fact that the song you are looking for is "If Those Lips Could Only Speak" by Slim Dusty. Which, as far as we can see, was never a hit anywhere. Slim Dusty did have a hit in 1958 with "A Pub With No Beer" and a hit in Australia in 1981 with "Duncan".

The song title "If Those Lips Could Only Speak" was also a hit for Dermot Henry in Ireland in 1970 and in 1905 George Baker released a song of the same title (possibly the same song) that John Peel had in his Peelenium listing
