      Do you think it's included under "digital sales" in those statistics?
      It shouldn't because it's not the same thing...

            Having read the document by IFPI NORGE I would like to point out:

            CARL ESPEN "SILENT STORM" necer entered the chart top 20 singles anmd he hass been certified PLATINUM ????
            Neither of the number one got a certification such as LILLY WOOD, sEINABO SEY.....

            ISN'T IT a bit bizarre that list???

                          • The Finnish chart archives have gone through a makeover. I have compiled three sites.

                            http://suomensinglelistat.blogspot.fi/
                            All singles charts from January 1961 to July 1995, pre-"official charts" era

                            http://suomenalbumilistat.blogspot.fi/
                            All album charts from January 1966 to July 1995, pre-"official charts" era

                            http://suomenlistalevyt.blogspot.fi/
                            Index for all charted hits and albums from January 1961 to August 2015. This is totally in Finnish but you'll probably find your way around it. If you have the Sisältää hitin book (with explanations in English), the system is essentially the same.

                            • Pohatta - Your 3 Finnish Chart Sites are excellent & very interesting.

                              It is obvious that you have put a lot of work into them. Well done.

                              • Hi Pohatta,

                                Thanks a lot for those links and the chart data that is really precious.
                                Just to make sure, are the rankings compiled by you or were they being published somewhere back then before the official charts launched? At the same time it's unbelievable that until 1995 Finland had no official charts!

                                Cheers,
                                M.

                                • The charts are compiled or rather re-done by me. I've used these sources.

                                  Monthly charts: Suomen Soitinalan Tuottajat (1960-1961), Iskelmä (1961-67), Ilta-Sanomat (1961-67), Suosikki (1964-1985), Stump (1967-70), Intro/Help (1968-79), Mitä Suomi soittaa (1972-85), Seura (1979-85).

                                  Weekly charts: Suosikki (1985-1990), Mitä Suomi soittaa (1985-1989), Seura (1985-1988), Radio Ykkönen (1988-1993), Radiomafia (1991-1993), Radio City (1993), YLE (1994-1995).

                                  Before 1994 there were many parallel charts and some claimed to be official at one point or another, but none of them were exclusive or dependable in the same way that the YLE chart (1994-2009) or the IFPI chart (2010-) are.

                                  • I've added yet another Finnish chart history site. It contains Top 75 yearly hit charts from 1961 to 2014. In the opening page there's a graph explaining which elements were included in the chart each year.

                                    • Can you please explain which chart of the ones you compiled together had which data source for their own chart? So were they airplay, sales, whatever based? And when do the YLE charts start at your site? Week 1/1994?

                                          In the suomensinglelistat site the weekly charts are sales only and the YLE charts start from week 1/94. After that there were no other sales charts in Finland.

                                          However, the yearly Top 75s in the suomenvuosilistat site combine different elements, as described in the graph. I don't call them year end charts, because every song's total points are concentrated in one year. A 2005 hit can have points from 2004 or 2006.

                                            So different magazines and radios all had their own sales charts? Sounds crazy if they had the same main data of the Finnish singles market, but different results. Or did their data collection methods differ?

                                              There were only minor differences in their methods. In the final years before the YLE era the compilers tried to get exclusive rights to some retail chains' sales data. The Ykkönen chart had the exclusive to Anttila chain and the Radio City chart had the Sokos chain. Shameful, really.

                                              Then again, the chart culture in 70s and 80s Finland was so primitive that if there had been only one chart, that wouldn't necessarily have been too accurate either. Maybe it was better to have three questionable charts instead of one official but still questionable chart.

                                              • The Swedish charts are in a woeful state. :( The download chart is no longer published, instead the Digilistan site has the top 40 of the Sverigetopplistan singles chart, making it completely redundant. Billboard.biz still has the download chart compiled by SoundScan but only the top 10 is published (and non-subscribers can only see the top four). And in spite of what they claim, most downloads are still missing from Sverigetopplistan. A song called Fädernesland by Bedårande Barn was at #2 on the digital chart two weeks ago, but missed the singles top 100.

                                                  But how intresting could a download chart in Sweden be when it takes like 20 copies to hit number one? Nobody is downloading songs here these days.
                                                  With that said, when it comes to sales certifications. The swedish single chart is total mess. Like every single you se in the Charts are certified with gold or multiplatinum. Today, 3 million streams is thel imit for gold sales and that is way to low. its often requierd around 1 million streams to even hit the top 100!

                                                  The result is that a lot of singles, that dosent even chart top 100 all can reach Gold or even platinum sales after a while.
                                                  Gold sales should be around 10 million streams, and 20 million for Platinum but i guess nobody cared about that.
