    To answer your questions guys. Thus far the Ultimate Chart has had around 6 ties usually around the bottom of the chart and one was in the teens. When a tie does occur, albeit rarely, because of the greater points system, I break this by favouring whichever was highest placed in the MM chart as it had the highest number of store returns. I mentioned I would use this method away back in the intro to the thread.

    it was only fair to have the very rare joint 30 above as both held joint 26 on NME and didn't place on any other chart including MM to separate them.

    Did MM have a tiebreaker regime? I've always assumed they did, because of the small number of tied places compared with the NME.

    At this time PIck Of The Pops had a contest where Fluff gave a chart position and invited you to write in saying what you thought would be at that number next week. The correct answers were put in a hat from which a prize winner was picked. I imagine if that position was affected by tied points they made sure there was a tiebreak.

    is that the first tie on the Ultimate Chart?

    The Stones gave Sitting On A Fence to Twice As Much who reached 17 with it. Mother's Little Helper was about the drug speed, which was used by NHS doctors (Who literally started the UK drug scene) as a slimming aid. The mothers of kids noticed they were going mad with the housework, even at night!

    Yeah and the USA weren't keen on Let's Spend The Night Together, most radio stations perceived it to be a bit risque, so it was Ruby Tuesday that was considered the 'A' side there and actually reached No 1.

    Talking of B-sides ...

    There was a large gap between Stones singles here, even though they had good material available from the Aftermath sessions including the aforementioned 'Siittin'On A Fence'. Perhaps they were holding back for something more raunchy to keep up their image. Yet in the USA 'Mothers Little Helper' was issued, backed with 'Lady Jane'. Billboard's NME-like policy of listing both sides held it down.

    Quite a few of The Beach Boys flip sides were class songs. The flip of Sloop John B, You're So Good To Me was another stunning pop song, actually strong enough to have been a single in its own right I always thought.
    I started humming Messing Around and got the similarity lol.
    The Mike Sammes Singers will return to the Top 30 later in the year in their own right.

    This is the beginning of a 38 week run when the NME and RR have exactly the same number ones. Fastest meets slowest!

    Re the Mike Sammes Singers (from Sing Something Simple) they also performed 'I was Kaiser Bill's Batman'. Although Cooke/Greenaway were credited with writing it, I always thought the melody ripped off Josh McCrae's 'Messing About On The River' written by Tony Hatch.

    On the flip of the Beach Boys was Wouldn't It Be Nice, still being used decades later on TV adverts.

    The Cliff single "Visions" features the backing singers that used to do Sing Something Simple, which many would have caught the end of every Sunday, while Radio Two FM switched to Radio One FM, just before the top 40 show.

    But, yet again the averaging process corrects the anomaly. That is the beauty of such a system at work.

    Yeah it's another strange week when the usually spot on MM is way out of step with the others on the No1, and it's not just slightly wide of the mark, the other 3 charts have Georgie at 3, 5, and 4.

    As you are doing 67 you do know that Disc ends it's top 30 that year and switches to MM.

    That 4-way tie is amazing. And someone at MM must have had a really big obsession with Georgie Fame.

    Ha , yeah I forgot about that Graham, was very tongue in cheek from the Kinks. Splodj, funnily enough Graham mentioned earlier in the thread and now you have picked up on it too, as have I, that MM does start to go out on a limb a bit at times, and its not for the last time. I'm now working on January 1967 and have raised my eyebrows a few times at MM positions on occasion. Thankfully we have averaging to correct it

    The normally 'midway' Melody Maker went maverick with Sunny Afternoon, which was number one in all the other charts for 2 weeks. Then in a few months it alone had I'm A Boy at number one for 2 weeks.

    The film the Kinks did for Sunny Afternoon shows them freezing in the middle of a winter day!

    Incidentally the excellent Sittin' On A Fence by Twice As Much should at least have gone Top Ten. I'm gutted.

    Yeah Brian that's fine. I just wanted to show how close your chart is to the actual sales, just in case people think a chart based on 600+ shops would be way out compared to one based on the lot. As you can see it's very close with many tied positions.
    Keep up the good work.
Working...
