Dexy's Geno

Dexy's Midnight Runners' Geno is not present. Surely this means there is something suspect with your algorithm? Or maybe 2 weeks at #1 in the UK gets trumped by a huge number of songs in your list which never got into the top 30 in US/UK or anywhere? Piaras

Dexys Midnight Runners hit "Geno" has the following entries: UK 1 - Mar 1980 (18 weeks), RYM 58 of 1980, 97 in 2FM list, Acclaimed 669 (1980), UK Silver (certified by BPI in May 1980)

in other words number one in the UK, but below 50th everywhere else. Contrast this with

Prince "I Wanna Be Your Lover" which has: US Gold (certified by RIAA in Mar 1980), France 8 - Nov 1979 (1 week), US Billboard 11 - Nov 1979 (15 weeks), Record World 13 - 1980, POP 21 of 1980, D.Marsh 37 of 1979, UK 41 - Jan 1980 (3 weeks), WABC NY 56 of 1980, US CashBox 75 of 1980, US Radio 87 of 1980 (peak 11 6 weeks), RYM 160 of 1979

So a hit in more places, and apart from the number 1 consistently higher. We think Prince deserves the 100th slot for the year ahead of Dexys.

Bit omission

Dear Sirs, I love your site, but you have made a serious omission with GaryNuman's records . Cars was a No 1 hit in the UK in 1979, a No1 hit in Canada in 1980 and top ten in the USA in 1980 (as well in other countries. Also his album Pleasure Principle was No 1 in the UK in 1979 and No14 in the USA in 1980. Cars and PP were in the USA charts probably for the whole year.

The record is listed here, its under 1980 (which is the year it was a hit in most places), and "Gary Numan".

You could have found it under "C" in the site index, under 1980 or by looking at the top 1000 artists.

We also list "Pleasure Principle" and more than 20 other albums that were hits for him on his album page.

So, no we have not left out any of the things you mention.
