NO YOU MAY NOT.

As Bullys can't be talked down from thier standpoint this confirms you are now a full on Bully.
You twist everything I say even when I swear at you, nor can you take a hint and let the subject drop.

Mod please lock this thread after this message, as Irishguy28 is just arguing another point not connected with the Thread. Perhaps a ban for him is in order now. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Seemed odd to me that you logged this a new entry on the "Real Chart", Graham, AFTER you saw this thread - like you were "catching up" on how popular it was.
Then you say in your blog that Real Chart readers were doing the catching up after seeing the OFFICIAL CHART.
How many readers do you have exactly?

Back to the REAL real chart:

The Real Chart has always been affected by the other chart, the Wilson track being nothing knew. The whole idea of getting a record in the chart for Record Companies in the past and even today if they are honest about it, is a boost to the sales of any record. With a multitude of product on the market if you can get a record into a high profile chart such as the one the BBC use, you can pick up sales, just from people visiting the website to see what is number one or look at where their fav act is. I believe that even the OCC chart has links to purchase tracks, does anyone believe these are never used in large numbers?
The OCC take measures to ensure that a record is selling and isn't being fiddled into the countdown by a Record Company. They do that because a chart record will generate extra sales, then one not in a chart.
I have said many times that the charts of the OCC past and present have never really reflected on the fact a record is in it's chart, because they tend to sample odd effects like this out. Sort of pretending the chart is not present when shops sell records :roll: However I even have witnessed the effect of the OCC chart top 40 on some I-Tunes records, those that are performing better on I-Tunes than the OCC chart -rare true, but it does happen. Have seen a record make the 40 at 40 of OCC, yet lagging behind on Real, that is slowly going up yet selling well on I-Tunes say at 29, and come Monday top ten I-Tunes, all because it enters at 40! By the way there's no other reason, it wasn't on TV etc!
In the past OCC records that were not actually selling at all were the only ones excluded from the Real Chart, examples of which can be seen on the Classic Chart page on my blog from 1985.

Came on the radio earlier - had to Shazam it as I'd forgotten what it was called.

This is a classic!

I love this song so much and its message.

It was a bit confusing at the time as another female group had a song with the same title, the same year.
Yes, I'm talking about En Vogue.

The first two albums of Wilson Phillips must be among my most played cd's.
I couldn't get enough of them and still love these albums today.

Fantastic song. It was Billboard's number one single of 1990.
