    Welcome to the Second Edition of the history of the Pan-European Charts.

    This is an updated edition of my popular thread with the early "un-official Euro charts".

    As you know the Music & Media Eurochart started in March 1984. From 1976 to 1984 there was the Europarade which is based on a points system similar to my own chart methodology. However, my Euro chart has more countries than the Europade.

    Note: The weekly charts from January 1960 to October 1965 are already available here. You can check the First Edition.

    WHAT'S NEW WITH THIS EDITION

    No.1 HITS
    The #1 Single from each country every week is listed below the Pan-European chart. Keep in mind that during the years prior to the 1970s some countries had monthly charts.

    1959 CHART DATA
    For the first time ever, the weekly charts from the second half of 1959 are added.

    PHOTOS
    A photo for every chart topper is available. About 60% of the photos are the original covers of the singles (45 rpm vinyl or CD), while the rest of 40% is taken from albums or sheet music covers.

    THE CHARTS

    Great to see this thread back. If I may ask a question, what countries (other than Ireland and the UK) did Ruby Murray's Goodbye Jimmy chart in?

    Great to see the rest of the charts. Been a fan of the first 60-65 series.

    I'm not very rock'n'roll but I have to admit, it's a great work!

    What is your source for the french charts before 1984?

    Ruby Murray's "Goodbye Jimmy, Goodbye" had its highest chart position in Norway, where it peaked at #2.

    Like I said in the previous edition, I don't want to post chart info for specific artists or songs, because I will never be able to finish this ambitious project.

    In fact, one of the reasons that the Euro Chart is now a top 10 (instead of a top 20) is because this time I want to finish the thread (at least, I want to compile the years 1959 - 1984)

    There are chart books from many countries where you can find info about a particular artist or a record.

    I use Daniel Lesueur's book "Hit Parades 1950-1998".

    From November 1984 to the present, I use the official weekly charts.

    What is your source for the french charts before 1984?
    I use Daniel Lesueur's book "Hit Parades 1950-1998".

    From November 1984 to the present, I use the official weekly charts.
    I guess it is not always easy because the "Hit Parades 1950-1998" publishes monthly, not weekly charts.

    Rather easy Probably Ziggy used this methodology: 1 month = 4 weeks. Also to German and others monthly and biweekly charts.

    But one question Ziggy, why you used only monthly charts from Finland until today. Archive with weekly charts from the mid 90's are available.

    So you're going to repeat the chart between 1960 and 1965 but only the top 10? Isn't that a bit pointless Ziggy?

    I mean we can always check the old thread to see them.

    PS Why is it important to reach 1984 for you? Any special artists in mind? I hope you find the courage to go all the way offcourse

    Best thread ever!

    I have one more question Ziggy. Are you willing to reveal one week of points, i mean typing the top 10 with the points so we can see how big the gap was.
