Doesn anyone know a link to the official Israel Singles Charts over 1987-1995 period? Or maybe someone has a chart book or can tell me where to get one (if there even is one for the Israeli chart archives)...

Thanks!

It is impossible to find anything on the internet about Israeli charts.

Do you have anything before 1987 or after 1995 then?

No, got no Isarel chart data at all, just personally interested in the 1987-1995 era. Also, the Danish singles charts seems to be ever-elusive...

Thanks a lot. What are these charts based on? Radio airplay?

Can you expand a little more with those charts? For example, how long was la isla bonita #1 on the charts?

hi,
i live in israel and as much as i know there is no official music chart over here but yet it has platinum/gold (P-40,000 G-20,000) awards for albums and i haven't find a website that publish those awards. the most famous chart for singles in israel is the "Galatz" radio airplay chart (a regular radio station that runs by the military).

hope it helps....

Indeed, but between 1977-1997 there was one by
Reshet Gimmel radio station.
It was based on votes (apro. 10,000 each week).

1988 - Mory Kante - Ye Ke Ye Ke - 4 weeks @ No'1
1989 - Kaoma - Lambada - 5 weeks @ No'1 (Also a year later voted as the best song of 1948-1989 in Israel :lol: )
1990 - Sinead O'connor - Nothing Compares To You - 3 weeks @ No'1
1991 - Bryan Adams - Everything I Do (I Do It For You) (No'1 in July for 1 week, then went back to No'1 in September for 4 more weeks)
1992 - East-17 - House Of Love - 4 weeks @ No'1
1993 - Pet Shop Boys - Go West - 6 weeks @ No'1

There's a distinct lack of Israeli charts on the net unfortunately. Especially from the 70-90s. Billboard used to print them but with no real frequency. Here are captions from the scanned BB editions (1980-1984) with bits earlier and later (a couple of charts are courtesy of IsraelChart user who, sadly, seems to vanish without a trace from UKMix):

Thanks for that. Pity it doesn't go later, as I wanted to find out what was #1 when I was born in 1987. Google Books doesn't seem to have many issues of Billboard from 1987 in its archive, for some reason, so I can't check that. I noticed IsraelCharts hasn't been here for a few years, alas.

Google.Books won't be of help I'm afriad, as since the mid 1984 Billboard stopped publishing charts from such peripheral countries as israel, Denmark, Portugal etc - they seemingly decided on a number of "important" countries like UK, Canada, West Germany, Italy, Japan and sometimes France and/or The Netherlands (+ Eurochart since 1986). So no chance to get those precious bits of otherwise unattainable info from BB, unfortunately.

Hey Guyz,
I was posting here before under IsraelChart but totally lost my password and couldn't recover my former account.
Anyway, I had a lot of time to gather the info you needed.
I will start with all the songs that peaked at No'1 in Israel from 1980 till 1997 (still need to find the info about 1976-1979),
the period we had an official chart by the radio station Reshet Gimmel that operated under Kol Israel ("The Voice Of Israel") network.
The chart was based on votes only, no singles sales.
And btw: The Official Israeli Chart since 2009 is compiled and published by MediaForest which is gathering all of the Israeli Stations airplay (16 in total)
So it's based on airplay only as well.

Thanks for the lists! Can you explain, please, those year-end charts were based on listeners votes or chart results of the songs?

And hoping to see more of this, of course :D

You're welcome! :)
It was actually a mix of both
The charting songs of the weekly charts got points that got factored in the Year-End charts, but only for 25% of it
but that was implemented only during the 90s (1992 to 1997 to be accurate)
from 1976 till 1991 it was based on votes only (10k to 15k each week, while the Year-End charts got up to 70k votes).
