Spelling mistake/Warrant

You have spelled the name of the band Warrant incorrectly (#86 - 1989). It is Warrant - not Warrent.

The name has been changed, thanks for the suggestion

The Proclaimers song

Why isn't The Proclaimers' "I'm Gonna Be (500 miles)" in the Top 100 for 1989? The song went to number one in Australia, number three in the US and number eleven in the UK.

The reason is because it was also a hit in the USA, but in 1993. The year assigned to a song is based on the charts it is in, and that song was in more charts in 1993 than in 1989 so it has been assigned that year not 1989.

Of course you could have found the entry by looking up the Proclaimers in the index, or using the search box at the top of each page.
