    No, there's a rule introduced now that applies a different ratio to old songs rather than new ones (seemingly introduced precisely because of how Christmas songs dominated the chart last year). Old songs will have to be streamed twice as much ( I think) to be converted to one sale.

    I wish they would have just left the charts as they were. I used to have a great interest in them(I still do to an extent) but the ever changing rules are ridiculous.

    We had the argument of whether the chart should reflect what people are buying or what people are listening to a few days back. At least the sales data is pure; a sale is a sale. For streaming, you have to break that down into whether you're a paying subscriber or not. Whether the accelerated ratio has been applied. And now if it's an old song or not. It's not really 'what people are listening to' anyway. And that's before you consider active and passive listening.

    I sat and watched my brother do it last year: "Alexa, play some Christmas songs". And, sure as eggs is eggs, up comes Mariah...

    Won’t that mean a posthumous hit us more unlikely now, because you can’t actively promote if you’ve been decapitated by a speedboat

    But what if the death makes the news? Surely that's promotion!

    Hardly "active".

    Well, unless it's suicide...

    I would say promotion could take many forms. The use of songs in movies or TV shows, for example.

    Isn’t that quite passive though? The makers of the movie/tv show chooses it and asks permission right?

    If Mariah ever dies, I hope she does it in very late November, preferably on that week's next streaming rotation.

    Rubbish. We all know she'd put it in her will that Touch My Body and Loverboy be played at her funeral and the days to follow. That's the only to mourn her.

    Ag has changed some of his threads to this name (including the Brexit negotiation one yesterday)

    If it's funny to the subject then I don't think it's deliberate.

    Only mods and admins can change thread titles, no? Or can you edit those you create yourself?

    But can we please refrain from changing every single thread to have cunt in it? It’s just fucking annoying.

    Back to the Billboard Hot 100 #7 hit, which is difficult to get, not everyone has that to their credit.

    If you start a thread, you can edit its title. Only mods and admin can change the titles of threads they didn't start.

    New peak for this in USA as it climbs to #6 in the Hot 100 :disco:

    (The highest-charting holiday season-themed hit in 60 years, according Billboard).

    I have a feeling Adele is going to block her from #1 by the way. :)

    Does this mean that the chart ratios will change given that doing a crisp advert is actively promoting the song?

    This year she has her best chance to be #1 with an extra day of streaming, make it happen!
