    I was thinking about this yesterday and with the BOOM in singles sales again, it's a kind of SKEWED version of the best selling singles of the decade, isn't it ?

    I mean, is "Hung Up" really less "big" a single than "I Kissed A Girl", for example ?

    And I'm STILL ANNOYED by this RIDICULOUS thing that has occurred for the past few years where they seem to do the end of year/decade charts a WEEK TOO EARLY

    You'd have thought the whole Scissor Sisters-Keane FARRAGO would have STOPPED THEM but NO

    But the poor lambs at the OCC want to spend new year at home with their families. Or in most cases on their own with a bottle of cooking sherry.

    Radio 1 were due to countdown the singles of the year on Sunday but musn't have realised that there was still another chart week left and so just did a normal top 40 countdown in the end. This chart of the decade set of shows has been scheduled for weeks, again perhaps Radio 1 didn't realise there was another week to go but next week they probably wouldn't have the space to fit in these programmes so I imagine they had no choice other than to ask the OCC to compile an end of decade chart for them with a week's worth of sales missing.

    I'm SURE the adjustments will be MINOR. Besides it's an indication of what the final list will LOOK LIKE.

    Oh come on...how can you "not realise" there was another week of sales left when you put something on BEFORE the end of 2009?

    It's SIMPLE

    Given that Radio 1 employ Fearne Cotton, I'm not sure that I'd put anything past them.

    I'd say I Kissed A Girl was definitely bigger than Hung Up to an average person, yes. Hung Up is 1000 times better, but that's not really the point.

    Hung Up was a HUGE HIT at a time when sales were at a MEGA SLUMP.

    Chasing Cars is probably a good example. I'd say that was probably a bigger hit than no. 49 of the decade would probably suggest.

    I knew this was gonna be really skewed towards the start and the end of the decade but I didn't realise that the end of the decade would be THAT skewed. Broken Strings THAT high?
    Top up, Sue?

    We are up to about 540,000 sales now but I'm sure Chasing cars has sold more than that, about 600,000 in fact. I wonder if the OCC have missed out its sales from its initial chart run?

    Beyonce's Crazy In Love being nowhere near the Top 100 would be one of the biggest ones...

    I think Rihanna's Umbrella will be relatively low given its chart-run too.

    The PPL has just announced Chasing Cars is the most played and used song of the noughties:

    Snow Patrol track is most popular of the Noughties

    Wednesday December 30, 2009

    PPL has named Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol as the most played and used song of the last decade.

    The music licensing company’s music reporting department processed Data for more than 20 billion seconds of airplay during the past decade to derive a top 50 of songs of which Snow Patrol sit at the summit.

    The hit, which peaked at number six in the UK charts when it was released in July 2006, has continued to receive extensive use on UK radio, television, online broadcasts and in public since. The group’s frontman Gary Lightbody believes the success of the song is down to one thing: “I think that the song has worked because it has an emotion that people can relate to,” he says.

    Songs released in 2006 also take the second and third spots in the PPL poll with Take That’s Shine at two and I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ by Scissors Sisters at three. Comeback favourites Take That are the only act to have two songs in PPL’s top 10 with Rule The World also charting at number six, though Scissor Sisters have Filthy/Gorgeous at number 30 and a number of other artists have two entries, including The Feeling, Kaiser Chiefs, Pink and Stereophonics.

    Whilst the majority of the songs were released in the Noughties, there are no fewer than eleven tracks released from previous decades featuring in the Top 50 chart. Among those timeless classics are Thin Lizzy (1976) with The Boys Are Back In Town at number 12, while the oldest is Aretha Franklin’s I Say A Little Prayer released in 1968 at number 50. 2007 is the latest year for entries with Sugababes’ About You Now, Duffy’s Mercy and Mark Ronson’s Valerie making the chart.

    PPL’s music reporting department compiled the top 50 tracks of the decade based on the number of plays on UK radio, television, online and in public.

    PPL head of music reporting, Tim Silver says, “The noughties has been a decade for great new music and which has been listened to by ever growing numbers of people. Just as they love listening to new music, there will also always be a place for golden oldies, evident in our top 50.

    “As we move into the next decade it will be interesting to see how music trends change as well as consumption patterns, and we will accurately capture the data we receive from all our licensees to see how media and usage develops.”

    The top ten songs were:

    1) Chasing Cars Snow Patrol

    2) Shine Take That

    3) I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ Scissor Sisters

    4) Love It When You Call The Feeling

    5) About You Now Sugababes

    6) Rule The World Take That

    7) You’re Beautiful James Blunt

    8) I Predict A Riot Kaiser Chiefs

    9) Can’t Get You Out of My Head Kylie Minogue

    10) Crazy Gnarls Barkley

    Rihanna's 10 week run at the top was lucky from the first few weeks... Most the country was flooded for that period.

    Where the hell did Love It When You Call spring from in that
    top ten? I suppose it's been used in the background to a fair few tv shows, but more played than Kylie and Blunt?

    Yes I was wondering if this would be set in stone by now, but I recall year end charts that radio 1 announced being different to Music Week's official ones that are published in the middle of January or whenever

    The OCC's ongoing problem with Fragma's Toca's Miracle continues. It has been missed off other decade charts the OCC have compiled for the music TV channels in recent years eg best selling dance singles of the decade, biggest sellers of the decade so far. It's almost as if the sales have been deleted from their database. It sold 530,742 copies in 2000 and, even if it has sold nothing on downloads since 2004, it should be in the low 70s in this chart. And that also includes ignoring the 2008 remix which scraped into the top 20.

    When the chart resumes tomorrow the top 30 or so will have sold over 700,000 copies. In the end of decade 1990s chart the top 56 sold 700,000+ with at least 20 records selling over a million copies.

    top ten? I suppose it's been used in the background to a fair few tv shows, but more played than Kylie and Blunt?
    being used in the background to various TV shows would help push it as high as the list is more than just airplay totals.

    I've kinda worked out that Toca's Miracle should be between numbers 48 and 52 for the decade because Groovejet (If This Ain't Love) sold about 520k copies and S Club 7's Never Had A Dream Come True sold about 600k copies, so surely it has to be between those two positions for Toca's Miracle, right?

    You'd have thought the whole Scissor Sisters-Keane FARRAGO would have STOPPED THEM but NO
    I doubt that's of their own choosing though. We are always obligated to round up the year's charts mid-December too, and then publish an 'official' chart later in the New Year. It's always a tricky payoff between waiting till the calendar year is over just to appease all the chart stat loons, at the expense of being completely ignored in the media. Turn it any way which you like, no radio station is still going to happily broadcast or paper is going to write about a Top 100 of the year once 1 January is gone.
