List of songs which have spent the most weeks on the UK Singles Chart

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following is a list of songs that have charted for 50 weeks or more in total on the UK Singles Chart, according to the Official Charts Company (OCC).[1] The chart here is as recorded by the OCC, i.e. usually a Top 50 from 1960 to 1978, Top 75 from then until 1982, and Top 100 from 1983 onwards. To be eligible the song has to be the original version whether it be by re-entry or re-issue. Remixes do not count except under certain circumstances (see "Blue Monday" below).

With a total of 237 weeks, the song with the most weeks in the Top 100 is "Mr Brightside" by the Killers.[2] When only a Top 50 was compiled, Frank Sinatra's "My Way" set records which still stand: 122 weeks in the Top 50 between April 1969 and January 1972, 75 weeks in the Top 40,[3] and 124 weeks in the Top 75, including a re-release in 1994, following a Legend Award for Sinatra at that year's Grammy Awards.[4]

The longest unbroken run in the Top 100 is 95 weeks for "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran, Sheeran's "Shape of You" amassed 94 consecutive weeks meaning Sheeran has the top two songs with the longest continuous chart runs. Engelbert Humperdinck's "Release Me" held the record run in the Top 50, at 56 weeks, for over 40 years[5] until beaten by "All of Me" by John Legend with 58 consecutive weeks in the top 50 (since passed by "Thinking Out Loud" with 63 weeks). The song with the most weeks at No. 1 and in the Top 10 is "I Believe" by Frankie Laine which stayed in the Top 10 for 35 weeks, 18 of them at No. 1 and a further seven at No. 2. Also noteworthy is "Rock Around the Clock" by Bill Haley & His Comets, the only song released in the 1950s to appear in the lists, which achieved 36 of its weeks when only a Top 20 or Top 30 were published.

In the pre-digital era, Christmas-themed songs were often re-released in different years and several have continued to chart each year from the mid-noughties onwards. "Merry Xmas Everybody" by Slade has had 24 chart runs in 27 different years (1973–74, 1980–87, 1989–90 and 2006–20), while "Fairytale of New York" by the Pogues and Kirsty MacColl has reached the Top 10 seven times and spent a record 56 weeks in its sixteen runs in the Top 20. In a similar but more modest way, since 2007, "Thriller" by Michael Jackson[6] and "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker, Jr.[7] have charted at Halloween in twelve and ten years, respectively.

The numbers shown are up to the chart for week ending 13 August 2020.

Songs with 50 or more weeks in the Top 40

The Top 40 chart has been broadcast weekly on BBC Radio 1 (currently as The Official Chart) since the 1980s and is often referred to as 'the charts'. Appearing in the Top 40 can greatly increase a song's exposure on television and radio. In June 2015, "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran became the first (and so far only) single to stay in the Top 40 for 52 consecutive weeks - equivalent to one year,[31] having spent a record-breaking 18 weeks in the chart before reaching No. 1.[32]

Notable singles

"Blue Monday"

New Order's "Blue Monday" includes the remixed version of the original, which was finally made available as a single for the first time in 1988 with almost the same catalogue number; sales for this shorter version and the original were combined, when calculating its chart position. The second remix, from 1995, charted for four weeks but is excluded from this list.[175]

"Merry Xmas Everybody"

In addition to Slade's total of 98 weeks in the Top 100 for "Merry Xmas Everybody", they also had two remixes of the song, not counted because they were re-recorded with other artists. The first, from 1980, was credited to Slade and the Reading Choir; the second, from 1998, was credited to Slade vs. Flush.[176]

"I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday"

The original version credited to Wizzard 'featuring vocal backing by The Suedettes plus The Stockland Green Bilateral School First Year Choir with additional noises by Miss Snob and Class 3C' spent nine weeks in the charts in 1973-74, three more weeks during the 1980s, and 57 weeks from 2007 to 2020, making a total of 69 weeks in the Top 100. A re-recorded version was issued in 1981 and 1984, achieving eight weeks in the chart (not counted towards its total).

"White Lines"

Grandmaster Melle Mel's "White Lines (Don't Don't Do It)" was remixed in 1994 and charted for an additional three weeks, making 46 in total in the top 75 (61 in the top 100 including one in 2004).[177] It was also re-recorded in 1995 by Duran Duran featuring Melle Mel and Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five and charted for another five weeks (not counted towards its total).[178]

"Three Lions"

"Three Lions", recorded by Baddiel and Skinner and The Lightning Seeds, is not eligible for the above list for either version but has clocked up an impressive 52 weeks[179] on the UK Singles Chart Top 75 under the guise of "Three Lions" and "3 Lions '98" and 62 weeks in the Top 100. It was originally released in 1996 as "Three Lions", then subsequently released in 1998, and re-issued in 2002 as "3 Lions '98"; then re-issued in 2006 as "Three Lions/Three Lions '98" as a dualdisc. In 2010, "Three Lions" charted once again, due to downloads. In 2018, "Three Lions" reached No. 1 in the UK Chart for one week, due to England's success at the World Cup. It was also released in 2010 by The Squad, aptly called "Three Lions 2010"; this version tallied up a further six weeks in addition to the 62 weeks.[180]
