#53 - Lil' Wayne - Let It Rock

This song should also appear on the Lil' Wayne Song Artist #577 page under duets.

There were tow issues here, first the artist attribution needed Lil' Wayne adding and secondly the difference between "Lil Wayne" and "Lil' Wayne", we have now fixed the data so we don't use the first form. Thanks

Missing Data???

Hi there!

When do you predict to add datas from UK & US tables?

Great Job!

We add data as it becomes available. The dificulty is that we don't want to add entries in that will change later, for example by spending more time in the charts. So we didn't add the entries for 2008 until the following year had completed (i.e. during Jan 2010).

For the Billboard data its a bit more complex than that. This data comes from the Bullfrog list, which is updated regularly on the news groups. For that chart we have to wait for each track to be assigned a key, that is a string of the form "1972_003", which indicates it was the third biggest song of 1972 ("American Pie" by Don McLean just in case you're interested). This is a unique identifier (sometimes called the "Whitburn Number") which tracks a particular song for its career. Of course you don't know which year a particular song will be assigned (for example "American Pie" was released in late 1971) let alone what ranking it will get. So Bullfrog and his associates assign temporary IDs for songs until they can calculate the real one. So until all the songs for 2009 have IDs assigned we won't add the Billboard charts.

In either case I would expect that we will be adding the main UK and US charts for 2009 some time in early 2011.

There are all sorts of reasons why we don't keep up to date with the current chart data. To be honest if our main focus was recent music we would have a different site structure and a better way to automatically extract data from the large number of sources that are currently available. But our main effort (and interest) has been directed at getting the best information we can for earlier eras and at consolidating the information from the few sources we have. That is why our site is not so good for data from the last few years.

2009 Duplicates

First off, this list is fantastic. Thanks so much for doing this for everyone. Just so you know, it appears that the following songs are the same, just different spellings: 1. Song #6 and Song #11 2. Song #14 and Song #45 3. Song #23 and Song #86

You are right, those songs have been fixed.

As you can imagine finding all the alternate spellings that different charts use is a big challenge for us. Input from users such as yourself really helps, thanks for the correction.

Songs from the Year 2009

I saw duplicates of "I Got a Feeling" by Black Eyed Peas at #2 and #92. Can you please revise it to prevent from duplication?

Certainly. Thank you for the correction.

2009...and after :)

Hi there!

I'd like to start by saying Congrats on the great work here!

When will you "post" the results for 2009?

Is it too much to ask you to show us 2010 every time you upgrade? It would be fun to see the performance of the songs... just an idea! Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Thank you

We obviously don't focus on recent music. In the 1.8.063 data the years 2000-2005 have an average of 5040 song entries (with a standard deviation of 115), but the number of entries trails off from there.

2006: 3686, 2007: 2109, 2008: 897, 2009: 5

The two main reasons for this drop-off in numbers are firstly the fact that some data is not published yet and secondly that we only process each chart every so often.

To take a typical example the "Bullfrog" spreadsheet, which is the best source for the US Billboard chart, will only publish the definitive version of the 2008 data at the end of 2009. We, of course, will process that data some time later.

All this means that the year charts up to 2005 are fairly reliable, but for years after that this site doesn't really have enough data. As time goes on we intend to add charts for the later years as they become available.

As soon as we have any entries in 2010 we will be publishing them. Obviously it will take some time to obtain any 2010 data, and even longer before the 2010 charts are "reliable" (our guess would be some time in 2015!).
