Hall & Oates

I like this site but it seems not fair to this marvelous late 70-80's super duo. You cannot just miss them when you talk about entire 80's.

Song artist 180 (of all time) and album artist 293 seem about right to us (given their lack of success in Europe)

One issue is that since they were late 1970s and early 1980s their success is divided across the decades.

Deniece Williams

You have spelled Deniece Williams name wrong on "Let's Hear It For The Boy" (#28 - 1984). You have it as Denise, which is a common spelling of the name, but she goes by Deniece (and her nickname is "Niecy")

Some of the source charts list it as Deniece and some as Denise. Your suggestion seems to be the correct one so we've changed the name. Thanks for the input

Willie Nelson - No. 3

I have my last request - Willie Nelson albums were charted in many other countries, some you can find on: http://www.dutchcharts.nl/ and other websites. I can tell You also informations about 2 biggest his hits:

ALWAYS ON MY MIND (1982) No. 5 - Billboard Hot 100 No. 8 - Ireland (3 weeks) No. 10 - RPM Top Singles No. 17 - Netherlands (5 weeks) No. 39 - Kent Music Report (14 weeks) No. 49 - United Kingdom (3 weeks)

I will be happy, if you will post these informations on this website... Many thanks in advance, regards, Allan Pour

As we've said we need the sources for complete charts, individual entries cannot be added.

Both "Always On My Mind" and "To All the Girls I've Loved Before" are already listed here in the 1982 and 1984 year lists (and on the "Always On My Mind" and Julio Iglesias pages).

We don't have a seperate page for Willie Nelson's songs because he is not in the 1000 highest scoring song artists (in the 1.10.001 data he's artist number 1531)
