Why not make a New List based on the UK, Germany, The Netherlands, France, Belgium, Norway & Sweden?
After all, a great many Continental European Acts did not have much - if any - Top 10 success in the USA.
You can see this by the fact that ABBA can only have 4 World Hits, as they only had 4 USA Top 10 Hits.
That is hardly reflective of their real World success, when they had 19 Top 10 UK Singles & 21 in Germany.
But, the USA holds them back & reduces them to just 4 World Hits. The same thing holds Queen back,
and also several other truly Globally huge Acts.
You'd never guess that ABBA had 13 No.1's in the Euro Parade Charts. 17 No.1's, if you work out the Charts
from before they 'Officially' began - May 1976. If you work out the Euro Charts earlier than that, ABBA gain
4 more No.1's - Waterloo, SOS, Mamma Mia & Fernando. Clearly, ABBA being restricted to just 4 World Hits,
just because they only had 4 USA Top 10 Hits, is not a true reflection of their International status. (They
had 16 Top 10 Hits in the Global Chart).
After all, the USA is not the centre of the Universe. They have bought over 130 Million Garth Brooks Albums
there, & I doubt if he's sold even 6 Million Albums in the entire rest of the World.....
