    If Meat Loaf sings in at least 50% of the songs it's not removed but credited to him (hopefully will finally get a TOP 40 peak)..
    I think that was a mistake. Similar compilations by the likes of Michael Jackson and Diana Ross (Love Songs) have been removed from the main chart.

    There are other bizarre things on the extended top 100 on the site. Dead Ringer is classed as Dead Ringer / Bat Out Of Hell.
    Bat Out Of Hell II is listed twice!

    Right, Elvis Presley scored 17 while alive (as did The Beatles) but also another 4 posthumous #01 singles put him ahead with 21.

    Most #01 singles in UK Single Charts

    Elvis Presley - 21
    Beatles - 17
    Cliff Richard - 14
    Westlife - 14
    Madonna - 13
    Ed Sheeran - 13


    https://www.officialcharts.com/chart...-chart__23765/

    Elvis also have 17 #02 singles but technically only 9 of his songs peaked at #02 (and while he was alive).
    The other 8 were re-issues from the same versions of the songs and singles that previously peaked #01. So 17 singles but only 9 songs.


    The artists with Most #02 songs (and singles) are Madonna with 12 songs followed by Kylie Minogue (that had 7 #01 songs) with 11 songs at #02.

    Ed Sheeran already have 5 songs that peaked #02 as well but have been more lucky as he usually hits the Top.

    Years & Years’ Night Call set to become Olly Alexander’s second UK Number 1 album

    Meat Loaf on course to re-enter the Official Albums Chart Top 40 following the rock icon’s death last week.
    By George Griffiths
    Night Call by Years & Years is heading towards Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart.

    It would be the second UK Number 1 album for Years & Years, now functioning as a solo project for singer Olly Alexander. As a three-piece, the band previously topped the charts in 2015 with debut record Communion. See Years & Years’ full Official Charts history here.

    Not too far behind in second place are British newcomers Yard Act, eyeing a new entry at Number 2 with their debut album The Overload. The post-punk band from Leeds are the best-selling album of the week so far on physical formats.

    Following the news that rock legend Meat Loaf had died last week aged 74, a flurry of the larger-than-life performer’s albums are set to re-enter the UK charts. Chief among them is the classic Bat Out Of Hell, currently tracking to re-enter at Number 3, it previously peaked at Number 9. It could be joined by Bat Out Of Hell 2: Back Into Hell (4), Hits Out Of Hell (5), Dead Ringer (6), The Definitive Collection (11), Heaven and Hell with Bonnie Tyler (14) and Welcome To The Neighbourhood (20).

    Norwegian alt-pop singer AURORA is heading for her first-ever UK Top 10 album, with third record The Gods We Can Touch at Number 8, while Yorkshire rockers The Sherlocks’ World I Understand is eyeing a Number 9 debut, which would be the band’s second Top 10 album.

    Outside the Top 10, Miles Kane’s Change The Show is tracking to enter at Number 12, while just behind is actor Kiefer Sutherland’s third studio album Bloor Street at Number 13, and Jamiroquai’s third album Travelling Without Moving looks set to re-enter the UK Top 40 at Number 15, following a special 25th anniversary re-release. It originally peaked at Number 2 during its 1996 release.

    And finally, Italian pianist Ludovico Einaudi could gain his sixth UK Top 40 album; Underwater is currently on course to enter at Number 18.]

    The Official Albums Chart is revealed every Friday at 5.45pm on OfficialCharts.com and on BBC Radio 1’s Official Chart with Scott Mills from 4pm.

    There are a few (especially because streaming may help songs stay at #01 longer than they used to - but not so long as some past early 90's phenomenos):

    Not sure I put all of them but they are still a few:

    Elvis Presley - 80 weeks
    The Beatles - 65 weeks
    Ed Sheeran - 60 weeks
    Cliff Richard - 46 weeks
    Justin Bieber - 38 weeks
    Abba - 31 weeks
    Calvin Harris - 31 weeks
    Drake - 31 weeks
    Madonna - 29 weeks
    Take That - 29 weeks
    Elton John - 28 weeks
    Rihanna - 25 weeks
    Wet Wet Wet - 23 weeks
    Spice Girls - 22 weeks
    Shadows - 21 weeks
    Queen - 21 weeks

    Oficial Charts in UK started in November 1952.

    As you can see this past decade (and early 2020 and 2021) have had 5 artists represented here (Rihanna started in the 00's but only 3 weeks at #01 in the 00's and 22 weeks were already in 10's) comparing to only 11 artists that had achieved this during the previous 6 decades (50's, 60's, 70's 80', 90's and 00's). Got you thinking how streaming is screwing up charts to compare artists achievements now.

    Hope didn't leave anyone out (there are a few artists that were at #01 for 20 weeks but not 21 weeks including Westlife that had 14 #01 singles).

    As market have been different during the decades we see that in some decades not many songs would stay many weeks at #01. With tech improvements and logistics the late 90's and early 00's are famous for more #01 singles and less weeks at #01 as people rushed to buy the singles/songs on first weeks of release (that would then listen at home during months). That' also why Eminem only have 10 weeks at #01 despite having 10 #01 songs. Now as it's not what people rush to buy that is on the charts but what people listen to at home it's unfair to compare any artists from the streaming era with previous charting artists as the chart don't track the same thing anymore.

    Elton John was at 23 weeks with 7 singles at #01 before 2021 (so already above 21 weeks). During 2021 adding up 3 singles at #01 and 5 more weeks. As 2 of those were Christmas songs he may add a few weeks next year with his song with Ed Sheeran (that was 3 weeks at #01) - wonders of streaming.

    In case anyone is wondering where is Michael Jackson: he spent "only" 16 weeks at #01 in UK and he had 7 #01 songs in UK but he managed to have 44 TOP 10 singles - mostly when songs had to be released as singles to chart (showing that weeks at #01 aren't worth that much and even many #01 songs isn't always a sign that you will become one of the best of all time - look at Westlife now). In case you are asking Adele also spent 16 weeks at #01 in UK but she only had 3 songs to reach the Top of the charts in UK.

    So will be ahead of Madonna already and tie with Cliff Richard and Westlife.

    If he continues going at this speed he will become in no time the artist with most #01's in UK (still a bit to get to 21 but it looks like he may do it).
    Which artist/band has 21 weeks at #01?

    As to Radiohead... I don't know the title and don't think the have a new one? Unless I've missed something. They have no albums in the main 200, and the only one you don't know about is 'The Bends' at 138 on Downloads. Downloads also has OK Computer, but, as I said, you know that position from the OCC website.

    I expect you're right. Anyone know how many signed CDs there are? If there's only 5-10,000 then I'd say Encanto will definitely be no.1. If it's alot more then it may stay there (assuming they sell them all)

    Fireboy DML & Ed Sheeran aiming for UK's Number 1 single with Peru

    Fireboy DML & Ed Sheeran's Afrobeats hit is leading the Official Chart: First Look, while the late Meat Loaf could see three of his classic hits return.
    By Helen Ainsley
    Fireboy DML & Ed Sheeran are leading the way on this week’s Official Chart: First Look with Peru, as the Afrobeats hit heads for Number 1.

    The track, which previously spent four weeks atop the Official UK Afrobeats Chart, is up three places to Number 1 after 48 hours thanks to strong sales on CD single.

    If Peru can hold on, it will mark Nigerian singer Fireboy DML’s first UK Number 1 single, and Ed Sheeran’s 14th.

    We Don’t Talk About Bruno from Encanto - which last week became the first original Disney song to ever reach Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart - is at Number 2 today, but is leading on streams and could potentially reclaim its place at the top.

    Following news of the death of Meat Loaf last week (January 20), three of the iconic performer’s songs could return to the Official Singles Chart.

    Bat Out Of Hell is currently at Number 4, which would mark a new peak for the song if it holds its place. His 1993 Number 1 I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That) is at Number 7, and Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad is set to enter the Top 20 for the very first time at Number 15, having originally peaked at Number 32 in September 1978.

    The last time Meat Loaf had a single in the Official Singles Chart Top 40 was November 2006, with It's All Coming Back To Me Now ft. Marion Raven which reached Number 6.



    Belgian DJ Lost Frequencies and singer Calum Scott could rise into this week’s Top 10 with Where Are You Now, which is up three to Number 8 on the First Look. If it can hold on the track will be both artists’ second Top 10 single.

    Finally, Digga D returns with Pump 101, a collaboration with Liverpool rapper Still Brickin. Currently at Number 13, the song will mark Digga D’s tenth UK Top 40 hit and Still Brickin’s first.

    The Official Chart: First Look offers a first glance of the Top 20 ahead of Friday’s Official Singles Chart Top 100. The chart is based on preliminary sales and early streaming reports.

    18 Acraze feat. Cherish - Do It To It
    19 Belters Only & Jazzy - Make Me Feel Good
    20 Ed Sheeran - Shivers

    Bad luck for You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night) as it could have reached a new chart peak if not for the 3 songs per artist rule. It could yet overtake Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad but then that would fail to reach a new peak.

    3 consecutive weeks, so next week (not this week's chart to come) is when Adele (and some but not all of the other manual resets) will probably go back to ACR,

    The only current regular show I know of now on Radio 1 which would still play the latest Wombats single (and indeed has done for the last few) is 'Future Sounds' presented by Clara Amfo at 6-8pm Monday to Thursday. There's a lot of guff inevitably to work through, but in between the dross there are sometimes some very good songs played and it's one of the few sources on radio that will play new releases which aren't - alas - necessarily destined for significant streaming or sales (and therefore chart) impact. I suspect that bands like them would also qualify for the 'Future Artists' playlisting with Jack Saunders too (on directly after Clara's show) although I can't say for sure as if I'm in I've usually switched back to TV by then!

    I have liked a lot of Wombats stuff since their late '00s inception although I've been a tad less keen on their most recent releases. Nevertheless it's nice to see their album doing relatively well, albeit in a depressed market and ahead of the predictable precipitous fall the following week as only the committed fans will buy it.
