The standard page for 2012 lists the biggest hit songs across the whole World. This page compares that with the top 20 biggest hits of the year in North America and Europe. The region index explains how these results were generated and the long term trends.

The number of chart entries declines from about 2008 onwards so this data should be treated with some suspicion.
