Thank you so much for all the reflection on my chart
After a quick bit of browsing here, it looks like "The Mummer's Dance" was the smash that shares the 13-week record with "Make Me Feel"? Not gonna lie, both that song and artist are brand-new to me
What are the other three hits that lasted 10+ weeks on top?
On one hand, I love that The Mummer's Dance held the record because it's such an oddball distinction -Loreena McKennit never hit my c hart again. My chart moved very slowly in the early years, so it benefited from that. Five of the eight songs that have been #1 for 9 weeks or more are from the first five years of my chart:
1. Make Me Feel - Janelle Monae (13 weeks) - 2018
2. The Mummer's Dance - Loreen McKennett - (13 weeks) 1998
3. Rolling in the Deep - Adele - (11 weeks) 2011
4. The Rockafeller Skank - Fatboy Slim - (11 weeks) 1998
5. Lose Yourself - Eminem - (10 weeks) - 2002
6. Born This Way - Lady Gaga - (9 weeks) -2011
7. Down - Stone Temple Pilots (9 weeks) - 1999
8. Nookie - Limp Bizkit (9 weeks) - 1999
As you can see, outside of 2011, nothing has lasted more than 8 weeks at #1 in the last fifteen years.

If only Martin sang, he could be another Calvin Harris, but I think his career will hopefully go in that same vein of collaboration - they've all been great!
• Aw, looks like Janelle has to settle for the runner-up spot for another week
Do you know which song has spent the most weeks at No. 2 without ever reaching No. 1? **Fingers crossed** she doesn't get leap-frogged by Cardi & co…
It's a really strong top three right four right now - any of them could be #1, but I'll post my newest chart soon. As for the most weeks at #2 without going to #1... hmm, I'll have to research. I know Sam Hunt stayed at #2 for five weeks last year - I think he got blocked by Gaga's The Cure for most of that. I have one song that spent 2 weeks at #1 and 9 weeks at #2
- Superman (It's Not Easy) by Five For Fighting in the last three months of 2001.
