It's hard to say if #1 and #3 should be combined, but RPM and Billboard scoreswere wrote after "George Michael"S o #1 and #3 are the same actually,unfortunately +released with different names.+
Actually its worse than that "Careless Whisper" was released under the name of George Michael in North America and Wham! in Europe. We've decided to assume a value of George Michael

Careless Whisper by George Michael or Wham! are not only the same song but also the same release. In Europe Careless Whisper was credited to George Michael. Outside Europe it was credited to Wham! Combining those points and use George Michael / Wham! as artist would make more sense, in my humble opinion.
You are correct, there is just one song called "Careless Whisper". However the chart information indicates it was credited to Wham! only in North America and to George Michael in Europe, Australia, Africa and South America. So we have followed the majority of charts and credited it to George Michael.
