Liam the other ARIA reports in full are available from the Pandora archive if you search google. I've tried on many other occasions to request further info from ARIA but they haven't replied. I've tried the National Library in Sydney also because they have hard copies in storage which can be available upon request but i'm not sure how that process works.
Sorry Nelson i don't have any or interest in Kent Music Report, but if you guys are offering to help me scan them then by all means I haven't got one myself so umm yeah but i'm really interested in getting the Top 100 pre issue #449
Hey guys, um, I was wondering what position "V" (Vanessa Hudgens's album) went to in Australia. I'm pretty sure it debuted within the top 100, I remember seeing it on Chartifacts a couple months ago. Can anyone tell me what position it went to (peaked at)? Thanks in advance.
Hey Everyone, i would just like to say how bitterly dissapointed i am going to be if either Shannon Noll - Loud or Delta Goodrem - In This Life. Enter the chart @ #1! I think they will though. They will do a Missy Higgins or any idol product and be gone several weeks later. Fast track and in 10 years they won't b the songs remembered.
Let's have a shock number #1? It's more interesting.
I'm going to get a scanner this week so I will upload all the old ARIA Reports I have to pdf format, I am still so very interested in whatever you guys have in terms of #51-#100 singles that is not listed on this site (but should heh!)
Hey, I am after a song from the late 90s and it was sung in french, I remember it made the charts in aus. All i remember is it was a female, with the main instrument being the accordian in a more of a dance style than anything. sorry it is not much to go on but if anyone knows please help
i think that the ARIA site should let you see the top 100 songs of the week not the 50 songs. dont you think! i like to see how the music i like is doing well up against lots of songs!!!! if you listen to nova radio on sunday afternoons from 2:30 - 5:30pm ( adelaide only, different times for different states) you will hear a chart show called " the official motorola aria chart show". its great. theres an awesome host called jabba! they countdown the top 40 singles chart from the official aria chart! i hope the aria chart show will return in 2008! but if you do please make it a morning chart show - say, 9-noon! it lets you enjoy your sunday and lets you go out !!!!!
I just spoke to my ARIA contact and he said that the Top 100 for the year will be out in the first week of 2008, as they want to the last sales figures of the year to the complete Top 100, as that week is full of Christmas sales.
For anyone who could help. During many years listening to the australian groups, I realised that I never had an opportunity to find out how good they are. trying to find out all of chart positions, I stuck in Kent's charts. I am quite sure that they are really good but I am trying to find charts from 70's and 80's in web. If someone knows where could it be found, it would be very nice. Regards, Vlada
Here's a rough guide to ARIA's rules as to what can be counted towards sales of a single nowadays...
1. The physical CD single 2. Single track downloads of the "lead track" on a single - usually the "Radio Edit" but sometimes the "Album Version" 3. Single track downloads of the "Album Version", where it is not the nominated "lead track" 4. Single track downloads of the "Clean Version", if the song contains explicit language, and the "Clean Version" is not the nominated lead track. 5. Digital bundle downloads, as long as the bundle contains the nominated "lead track". 6. Downloads of the video clip.
Of course all of the above items have associated codes, which must all be supplied to ARIA by the record company to ensure that all versions/eligible bundles are counted towards the one single entry.
It seems over the next 10 weeks So You Think You Can Dance is going to have an impact on the Aria top 100 Singles chart. Celine Dion - A New Day Has Come is at #48 on iTunes. The Veronicas - Untouched moves back up to #4. Chris Brown & T-Pain - Kiss Kiss back up to #11, The Potbelleez - Don't Hold Back back up to #15. Not to mention Junior Senoir - Move Your Feet & Gary Jules - Mad World are still charting.
Hello NationOfZealots. I was wondering if you would be so kind as to search through the ARIA Top 100 Singles Chart and tell me what the peak position was for "Good Times" by the Australian Idol Top 10; when the chart week commenced and what issue of the report the single peaked on?
I understand it is a lot of work, and the only charting dates, it could be is from January 1, 2005 to May 30, 2005. There's like twenty charts, but I'd really appreciate this, for a wikipedia article that I am editing.
hey can anyone tell me the whole chart run of "Umbrella" by Rihanna Feat. Jay-Z on the aria top 100 and also the whole chart run of "Kiss, Kiss" by Chris Brown Feat. T-Pain on the same chart... if someone could like hook me up with those two whole chart runs from start to finish then that would be awesome man
I am currently working on an ARIA Chart book containing both singles and album information, which I hope to have ready by mid-2009. At the moment I am preparing the chart information, and I am up to the end of 2007, but what I wanted to ask you all, what kind of chart information would you like to see in a chart book. I am going to put the following information in regardless
Entry Date Song Titles (with an extra information about the track listed below) Highest Position (with how many weeks at peak in brackets) Weeks In Top 100 Weeks in Top 10 Weeks in Top 50 Entry Position Exit Date Record Company and Catalogue Number
I am also planning on having chart information pertaining to the last two years, showing how high the song went on the digital and physical charts as a separate listing under the song title. Plus any sample or soundtrack information relevant to the song, and extra contributing artists to those songs. Songs that charted on the download chart will get listed also.
So I guess that's a lot of information already, but is there anything people can think of that you would like to see, or should be taken out.
Yes that's true about certifications being about reaching a certain amount, but as for overall total of sales, that info is not in the ARIA reports. But I could try and ask ARIA if they could provide that info.

I hate to be a bother, but can anyone, if they know, list Morrissey's albums and singles' chart positions on the ARIA Charts? He seems to be more of a top 100 fixture than a top 50 one, because his only three of his albums have charted in the ARIA top 50, and those were his early 1990s material. Thanks if you can, it would be much appreciated. I'm planning to fill in Wikipedia with the information.

Thanks a ton. Sorry to be a pain but I am also looking for a few similar bands such as System of a Down, Limp Bizkit, and Deftones, if applicable. Just trying to fill the gaps on their Wikipedia discographies. I only have a peak of #50 for Deftones' "Minerva" and #46 for Slipknot's "Wait and Bleed".
JD asked awhile ago about this... "hey can anyone tell me the whole chart run of "Umbrella" by Rihanna Feat. Jay-Z on the aria top 100 and also the whole chart run of "Kiss, Kiss" by Chris Brown Feat. T-Pain on the same chart... if someone could like hook me up with those two whole chart runs from start to finish then that would be awesome man".
Well I have finished doing all of the ARIA Top 100's from 1990 through to the end of 2008, so I can now start giving answers.
Hey its me again... umm bulion thanx HEAPS for the info im grateful mate... but uh yeah umbrella in the charts for over 65wks!!! cool ...if its not any bother can you fix me up with the whole chart runs of Bleeding Love -Leona Lewis. Say It Right -Nelly Furtado. With You -Chris Brown. Apologize - Timbaland Presents: OneRepublic. The Way I Are -Timbaland Feat. Keri Hilson & D.O.E.
Thank you lots for tjhe information dude... you're a legend!!!
I am about to go through all of the ARIA Top 100 chart info from 1990 to the end of 2008, but I need help on some of the formulas I need on Excel. If anybody can help me with it (there's a reward in it for ya'), please contact me offline via my email address.
when will the proper top 100 be up. And what date is the triple j top 1000 anounced i reckon kings of leon will be number 1. and mgmt closly second. also walking on a dream will be up there and presets
also what is the chances of poker face being number the number one single of the year. Also it has been number one for 5 weeks and i can still see it being number one for a while.
Someone will post the end of year (2008) TOP 100 when it's released on the 2nd of January. I'm assuming Bulion will do this . Interesting about 'Poker Face', it could be a surprise TOP 5 but i think it'll definately be TOP 10 at least.
Does someone know which songs have had the longest run in the Top 100? One long run I know is Dancing in the Dark (64 weeks). Others may be Shimmer (Fuel), Umbrella and UFO ... also My People seems to be around for some time now. Thanks.
I thought it was SOME Sneaky Sound System song. But I think the most important thing is that all of those in the running for longest running song are critically and commercially acclaimed (Straight Lines, SexyBack, I Love It, Umbrella, Prisoner of Society, etc.). Expecting TLE, all of these are a result of digital downloads, which for this reason alone, makes this charting era very musically stimulating.
I agree the songs are staying on the chart for too long lately. It's like the aussie charts are turning into the 'Billboard' style of chart run. Wheres the diversity and the 'fair go' for the little song battlers?
Well, I completely disagree with the comparison to the Billboard charts. For a start, they have rules regarding how long a song can stay on the charts, and they have only ever had 10 or so songs stay in longer than 52 weeks (from memory, correct me if I'm wrong). And 'little song battlers' are still around in the lower echelons of the Top 100 here, take Pez, Tame Impala and Lisa Mitchell as the latest examples. Or even MGMT's Time To Pretend.
I think the charts were most interesting around the start of the decade.
The way the charts operate at present is not very interesting imo, but the current format is the best reflection so far of popularity.
I think so because of: - No artificial ceilings due to deletion of production of physical singles - Digital track prices better reflecting a song’s value relative to an album
But while it’s fairer, the charts are less interesting because:
Big jumps / falls used to happen from time to time, but now… - Big falls are rare, because of the hype-moderating effect of staggered digital availability and physical releases - Big jumps are commonplace, as digital tracks increase in fame from a standing start as opposed to a publicised debut, and of course when a song is physically released - As a result of the above, the debut position is almost irrelevant - Singles stay on the charts for long periods of time
I won’t even get into the 2006 format (including, at various times, the ineligibility of digital tracks without a physical release, digital sales excluded prior to the physical release, and the dispute with Brazin) – I hated that format.
But I also wasn’t a fan of the charts circa 2004-05. In 2000, 35% of top 50 singles debuted at their eventual peak position. But in 2004, 64% did, and in 2005, 73% did. It was too easy to predict a ballpark end-of-year position based on two-week sales (ie debut position, and size and direction of second-week movement).
I don’t know much about how the charts worked in the 90s since I wasn’t buying singles or paying attention to charts back then, but from what I’ve read, high debuts and long chart runs were both rare. I can understand the latter, but I wonder why high debuts were rare… was it due to less promotion? Perhaps greater knowledge of future release dates, caused by the widespread adoption of the internet, played its part. I’ve seen old Rage playlists and they generally used to play all future releases at some crazy early hours of the morning during the 90s, as opposed to their 2000-06 format of sandwiching the top 50 between longer-term / lower-publicity future releases (~5am) and near-future / higher-publicity future releases (~10am). Maybe that had a small effect as well.
That’s why I think 2000-02 was the most interesting chart era – a combination of high debuts and slow risers, and less longevity.
I am not going to argue that epic post! For a start, it's all true.
What we enjoy about the charts is entirely different, though. I like to see songs reflect their popularity and their quality. While I never fully understand the public's motives (Shake It is a prime example for me), it still reflects popularity. While year-long chart runs were rare in the past, they still occurred (Prisoner of Society), and I am sure if deletions didn't occur back in the old days, then chart runs would have been a lot longer
Longevity for me is a key in judging a song's popularity, as I enjoy songs for years at a time. So, that's just my reading of the charts. We should just agree to disagree.
Oh hey I'm not ranting at you... in fact, I'm not even disagreeing with you - after all, I did say that "the current format is the best reflection so far of popularity", and that physical single deletion was a downside in previous eras.
I think the only thing we disagree on is our motives for watching the charts. I'd say that you care more about the charts accurately reflecting popular opinion, while I care more about the aesthetics of chart runs.
Besides, two-thirds of the missive was me whingeing about other eras...
Oh, I never thought you were having a go or anything, lol ... after all, most of what is written on the net is misunderstood by someone! We are just having a good conversation regarding our thoughts on the charts! It's nice to have intelligent, informed discussion about charts and the whole idea of it. And you are right with our differing motives, and I think that's why we respectfully disagree. And do you think Rage does have an impact on the charts that much? I wish JTV did when it was running, unfortunately it was just a shithouse show with awesome songs sandwiched in!
Craig II, I think a big factor in the large number of high debuts from 2000 onwards is that many songs were played on radio for weeks before the CD single was released. This built up anticipation, hence the high debuts. In the 90s in Australia, singles were often released at the same time, or before airplay kicked in.
I don't follow the current charts, but whenever I take a glance, I too find the longevity boring. The UK charts have also greatly slowed down since downloads were included, although their chart was much faster than ours before downloads.
That’s interesting, Nugs. Having only begun listening to music at the incredibly late age of 10, I hadn’t been exposed to the format that radio stations adopted in the 90s. I couldn’t imagine little or no airplay before a single release! I had no idea radio stations were so conservative back then. I had always assumed that their format was the same as this decade. That’s why I was wondering whether the low debuts were due to things like music video shows and the internet.
Still, I guess Rage also had a similar, but obviously very much smaller effect on debut positions when the show began playing future releases at a decent hour in 2000.
Clinton, I wouldn’t say Rage has ever had a major effect on the charts in general, only a minor one really. As for intelligent and informed discussion, I agree – this whole forum is great in that regard.
Very interesting and informative discussion above. My original comments on the Billboard style of chart run were more in the context of the variety of songs you would hear on the weekly Top 40 radio/net show. I hope ARIA is not trending towards longer chart run songs which would be at the expense of lower turnover/diversity. While I also agree it is good to see a good song do well with a long chart run, too many of these chart runs can make the Top 40 shows more predictable week on week. I have done a quick survey on the number of songs within the Top 50 that have spent over 20 weeks in the charts. Each year's data is from the weekly chart for the first week of October unless mentioned otherwise: 1990 (0); 1993 (0); 1996 (3); 1998 (2); 2000 (1); 2002 (0); 2004 (2); 2006 (0); 2007 (5); 2008 Apr (8); 2008 Oct (7) Definitely a trend of longevity setting in here. It would be interesting to know how many Top 50 songs there were in 2008 compared to prior years. This would clarify turnover better. Perhaps related to this, why do the UK charts have a high turnover compared to the US? Is this marketing related as the reasons above (internet sales, TV shows) cannot alone explain these differences.
These are the 10 longest-running* singles of 2007, 2002 and 1997 (*as of the final charting week of each year only).
Interestingly, while the same number of singles made the top 50 in 2007 and 1997 (261 and 262 resp), the longevity of the marathon runners in 2007 was much more than in 1997. For the total number of top 50 hits to be the same, either the middle majority had a shorter run on average in 2007 (unlikely) or 2007 featured more minor hits that lasted only a few weeks.
Still, 347 singles made the top 50 in 2002, so their runs were much shorter on average.
42 weeks: BLACK FINGERNAILS, RED WINE - Eskimo Joe 40 weeks: ROCK THIS PARTY (EVERYBODY DANCE NOW) - Bob Sinclar 39 weeks: FLAUNT IT - TV Rock featuring Seany B 38 weeks: SEXYBACK - Justin Timberlake 38 weeks: STRAIGHT LINES - Silverchair 36 weeks: PUT YOUR HANDS UP FOR DETROIT - Fedde Le Grand 35 weeks: UFO - Sneaky Sound System 34 weeks: I WISH I WAS A PUNK ROCKER - Sandi Thom 34 weeks: OVER MY HEAD (CABLE CAR) - The Fray 34 weeks: PICTURES - Sneaky Sound System
29 weeks: BETTER MAN - Robbie Williams 24 weeks: HOW YOU REMIND ME - Nickelback 23 weeks: TRIBUTE - Tenacious D 23 weeks: OUT OF REACH - Gabrielle 23 weeks: A THOUSAND MILES - Vanessa Carlton 22 weeks: WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME - Christina Milian 22 weeks: LIVIN' IT UP - Ja Rule 22 weeks: LET ME BLOW YA MIND - Eve featuring Gwen Stefani 21 weeks: NOT PRETTY ENOUGH - Kasey Chambers 21 weeks: JUST A LITTLE - Liberty X
36 weeks: BREATHE - The Prodigy 32 weeks: TRULY, MADLY, DEEPLY - Savage Garden 32 weeks: TO THE MOON AND BACK - Savage Garden 31 weeks: HEY JUPITER / PROFESSIONAL WIDOW - Tori Amos 31 weeks: WANNABE - Spice Girls 29 weeks: SEXY EYES - Whigfield 28 weeks: UN-BREAK MY HEART - Toni Braxton 28 weeks: I LIVE FOR YOU - Chynna Phillips 27 weeks: HOW DO U WANT IT - 2 Pac 26 weeks: PONY - Ginuwine
(For the record, 1997 was the first year of ARIA's 52-week chart system, as opposed to the two-week Xmas break they took previously.)
Thanks for that Craig II. Very interesting table actually ... Surprised to see that those stats are very cyclical over a longer term. A peak in 1992, not sure why, then steady decline. Would have expected the rise since 1998 as the internet & information age contributes to the diversity of popular songs (and some limited release songs too as mentioned above). But wow, look at the drop since 2006?? When chart turnover increased since around 2000 I figured this was around for good, so still at a loss for why turnover (at least in the Top 50) has declined so much since 2006.
Hi. Just read this discussion. Very interesting. Craig II. I noticed you mentioned this earlier today. (Having only begun listening to music at the incredibly late age of 10, I hadn’t been exposed to the format that radio stations adopted in the 90s.) You think thats late, I only began to start listening to music at 15 years old. That right 15. NOW THATS LATE!!. I Agree that the charts are having longer chart runs which is really BORING!!.
I added some more stats - one in four singles in 2007 spent 20 weeks or more on the chart.
I think the deletion of singles from production had the biggest effect on turnover in 2000-06. Apart from the obvious matters of trying to boost album sales or promoting the following single, no-one will produce a single for which there is very little demand. I suppose that in 2000-06, the final weeks of a single’s chart run reflected people snapping up the last remaining copies. After all, in quieter months, singles only need to sell a few hundred copies nationwide in a week to reach the lower end of the top 50, and no company would bother continuing with that sort of demand. With digital tracks, this artificial truncation isn’t there.
Another possible factor: the sales formerly contributing to a big debut are now spread out over a few weeks. Radio airplay in advance of single releases caused them to debut high in 2000-06. OTOH, most singles these days take a few weeks to reach their peak, front-loading their chart runs with a couple of weeks of low sales.
15, wow! Are you talking about modern music, or all music? Is there an interesting story behind it?
I'am refering to Modern music. Yes there is an interesting story behind it. It started when I first started to pay attention to Rage in late 2005. At 6:20am every Sunday morning I would look at what #1 would be. Not because I liked music but because of what the #1 song is. I couldn't care less about the others. Then in early 2006 there was a #1 that I actually liked, and then I started watching the whole chart they showed on Saturdays and it evolved from there. Hoped you liked my story Craig II.
I think the reason for the significant fall in australian singles reaching the ARIA top 50 since 2004 is simply that in the middle of the decade Australain musicians had a lot more to offer than they do today versus the type of music that has grown consistently popular each year from the United States.
When you think about it and consider all circumstances, every year Australians are becoming more and more interested in the pop, hip hop, rap etc. American music that charts well in Billboard Lists over there.
But I'm told since the early 2000s New Zealand has had more American music like the hip hop rap sort of thing chart in the top 40 and it looks like just a few years onwards Australia is beginning to follow suit.
The American music industry is just crazy these days and soon it will become a challenge for even mainstream rock to compete with the hip hop rap culture that is growing in increasing numbers by the minute.

While fewer Australian/NZ singles are reaching the weekly top 50 these days, it’s actually a reflection of fewer singles *overall* reaching the top 50 over the last few years. The list I posted was a bit misleading in that regard, so I’ve updated it by adding the Australian/NZ content percentages.
In reality, Australian/NZ content in the weekly top 50 singles has declined, but only slightly, from 28% to 26% from 2004 to 2007. It’s not the dramatic dropoff that the raw numbers indicate. I think this is natural variation more than any sort of trend.
I’ve also added to that table a list of Australian singles to make the Aria end-of-year 100 each year this decade. This, however, does support your point – since 2004-06, the performance of Australian singles has declined significantly. They’re as likely as before to make the charts, but less likely than overseas singles to do some serious damage.
Still, I wouldn’t say that the Australian charts are becoming increasingly urban – in fact, I think the urban content peaked in the mid-2000s and is currently in decline. I haven’t got any stats yet because of discrepancies in Aria’s end-of-year tables – the “top 100 singles” lists all singles, while “top urban singles” lists presumably physical singles only (given that the order of urban singles is different between charts). I’ll try to work it out myself when I get a chance.
Anyway, here’s the rock content:
-------------------------------------------------------------------- ROCK SINGLES IN THE ARIA END-OF-YEAR TOP 100: --------------------------------------------------------------------
Top Top Top
20 - 50 - 100
2 --- 4 --- 15
4 -- 12 --- 18
3 --- 8 --- 19
2 --- 5 --- 10
6 --- 8 --- 21
1 --- 7 --- 13
3 --- 9 --- 22
7 -- 14 --- 26
4 --- 8 --- 22
I created the rock list, since Aria doesn’t have a specific rock category. Of course, everyone defines rock differently, and some artists span many genres.
Apart from the 2004 top 20 aberration, rock has been gradually improving across the board since 2003.
Also, I agree that the Billboard Hot 100 is dominated by urban music, but I disagree that the American music industry overall is dominated by it.
----------------------------------------------------------- ALBUM SALES IN THE US BY GENRE, 2007-08: ----------------------------------------------------------- (in thousands)
Even if rock is composed entirely of alternative, metal and a few multi-genre albums (likely since the rock category did not exist before 2006), it is comfortably ahead of the combined total of R&B and Rap (regardless of the size of their overlap), and the gap has increased over the last two years.
I know that album sales don’t tell the whole story, but rock is the best-selling album genre. Not sure about median sales per album though. I’m also not sure that the urban music culture is growing anymore – it’s hard to say, given the amount of piracy taking place. Even on the Hot 100, rock songs seem to be performing better than they used to – a few years ago, a rock song in the top 5 the Hot 100 was almost unheard of. But numerous songs have made it over the last three years. Pop also seems to be improving.
Also, I had a look at RIANZ’s charts, and it’s pretty crazy – it’s possible that their singles charts are even more urban-dominated than those of the US!
Offbeat story, definitely not what I was expecting…
Damn, I'm posting way too much. I'm not trying to monopolise the discussion or anything Last edited:
Does anyone know the true ARIA Top 100 Highest possie for:
911 IS A JOKE - Public Enemy JEREMY - Pearl Jam POISON - Bell Biv DeVoe EXPRESS YOURSELF - N.W.A. WITH EVERY BEAT OF MY HEART - Taylor Dayne GOOD LIFE - Inner City RHYTHM NATION - Janet Jackson (the single not the album) SUMMER - Dragon ONE MOMENT IN TIME - Whitney Houston STREET OF LOVE - Jenny Morris FAME 90 - David Bowie feat Queen Latifah TALKING ABOUT A REVOLUTION - Tracy Chapman
I have the yellow book for Aust Music Report but really want true ARIA Top 100 positions 1989-1992.
Craig II's table above shows that since 2000 there have been at least a dozen songs debut in the Top 3 (of the Top 50) each year. However some may not realise that over 20 years ago it was very rare for a song to quickly move into the upper reaches of the chart. I've compiled the full list of songs 1977-1988 that made the Top 3 in either their 1st or 2nd week in the Top 50 chart.

Anything that has nothing beside it charted below Top 50 in 88 & 89. As I don't have Top 100 info for the time period, I can't supply that.
The ARIA Top 100 Singles Charts from January 2003 until December 2008 are now available to those who would like it sent to them via email. This is for a limited time only, so send your request to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send them to you.
Also, if there are any Top 100 singles questions needing answered, please put them here, as I have now completed a giant spreadsheet from Jan 1990 through until Dec 2008 with all of the songs that charted during that period.

Does anybody know the origins (country, state) of the below artists, as the upcoming ARIA book has the groups place of origin beside them, but the below acts I can't seem to find anything about. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey Bulion, I was wondering if any other songs of "Willa Ford" charted, or the album. "Did Ya Understand That" and "A Toast To Me (Fuck The Men) were both physically released. The album "Willa Was Here" was also released. Did any of her other release chart on any chart including Hitseekers?
3rd single planned was "ooh Ooh". "I Wanna Be Bad" is allready at the top of my "25 most played songs" on Itunes. I saw the video, and man is she a wannabe tramp. But i guess thats what got her there. Her song "A Toast To Me" i thought for sure would've charted, as i know plenty of people owning the single (4 actually )

Im really sick of songs peaking at #11-#12....theres been so many of the years, and it's such a shame since most of them are worth of top 10.
Heres some......

Does anyone knows the exact positions of The Cranberries´ songs and albums that made top 100? I think some singles debuted on the chart in a low position outside Top 50 and probably some singles and albums made a long run in Top 100. How can I know chart-run for The Cranberries´ album/singles between 51-100?. Is there any info about how did it the first album solo by Dolores O´Riordan and if her single even charted? Thanks who can give me an answer.

I haven't finished doing the album charts yet, and no solo singles for Dolores
WI50 = Weeks In Top 50 WI100 = Weeks in Top 100 EP = Entry Position with the songs with "x", that is how many weeks they stayed at their peak, so 1x8 equals eight weeks at No.1, and 5x3 means three weeks at No.5 Last edited:
There are many worthy songs, that either never made top 50....or never made top 100....here's my list, all the songs that are in my worthy top 100 list were Physically Released in Australia. SONGS THAT MISSED TOP 50; I Wanna Be Bad - Willa Ford..........#52 peak Damaged - Danity Kane..........#51 peak. Bumble Bees - Aqua..........#65 peak. Only Happy When It Rains - Garbage...#80 peak. I Think Im Paranoid - Garbage.........#57 peak Just Like A Pill - P!nk..........#97 peak Radar - Britney..........#59 peak Superman/Supergirl - Killing Heidi....#57 peak Fearless - Wes Carr..........#51 peak About You Now - Sugababes....#57 peak Shape - Sugababes.....#74 peak 16 - Sneaky Sound System....#52 peak Sexy - Roxanne..#92 peak SONGS PHYSICALLY RELEASED, BUT MISSED TOP 100 Did Ya Understand That - Willa Ford A Toast To Men - Willa Ford Soul Sound - Sugababes Easy - Sugababes Save The Lies - Gabriella Cilmi When We Were Young - Sneaky Sound System You Look So Fine - Garbage
GARBAGE - Only Happy When It Rains GARBAGE - I Think I'm Paranoid PINK - Just Like A Pill (Only charted a few weeks back ) KILLING HEIDI - Superman/Supergirl GABRIELLA CILMI - Save The Lies (awesome track and 1000 times better than "Sweet About Me")
Im very surprised "Radar" didn't go top 50....radio will probably pick it up again, because its been re-recorded for release, plus the music video has been released (its really crap)......I really wanna see "Lady GAGA" crack #1 with "Paparazzi"....I hoestly can't get enough of it.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help out. I'm after the ARIA top100 (or even KMR top100 if before mid 1988) of the following country artists. It seems like a long list but I'm assuming not all of them have charted and the ones who have, haven't had a massive amount of hit singles. Also, don't stress about posting the top50 positions because I can look those up with the search box above.

Hi, could anyone tell me if Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, Toni Childs, Texas, Marillion, Morcheeba, Moloko, Nerina Pallot and Alanis Morissette had any singles charting lower than the top 50? I'd like to put these info on Wikipedia (I have time so you can put it here in parts) Thanks in advance!
With the aid of bulion's awesome book ARIA SIngles Chart Book 1988-2008 here is some info you require mixplusik:
Peter Gabriel: Nil Kate Bush: This WOman's Work #89 (March 1990) Toni Childs: Nil Texas: Why Believe In You #73 (December 1991) In My Heart #92 (March 1992) In Our Lifetime #79 (June 1999) Summer Son #95 (October 1999) Inner Smile #93 (April 2001) Marillion: Nil Morcheeba: Nil Moloko: Nil Nerina Pallot: Nil Alanis Morissette: Unsent #81 (April 1999) Out Is Through #79 (August 2004) Crazy #61 (December 2005)
For anything after 2008 you'll have to search through the Pandora Archive linked in Chris A's post. I'm still in the process of updating that part of my charts so don't have all the info handy.

I believe sometime between May '98 and November '98, the charts were discontinued for some reason before return in late '98 until sometime in 2000/2001 when they went online only.

Does anyone know where to find a list of the Top Selling Singles for Decade 1990-1999. ARIA has published a list of 2000-2009, but are silent on the 90's. THanks. Also, reTV program guides from 80's & 90's, check with TV Week.
ARIA have not done a 90's Top 100 for the Decade, as in 1998 they changed their reporting system, thus older reports had different data to newer ones. I do know that Elton John's "Candle in the Wind '97" was the No.1 song of the decade though.
the master, most TV listings are in newspapers, which most major cities are on micro-film in state libraries.
So if you have some spare time, go to the state library in your capital city (or phone them first) and see what papers they have on micro-film. That's where I researched all of the charts from the 50's & 60's, and most of them have photo copying facilities from the micro-film.
Thanks for getting back re: the 90's chart. I got onto ARIA and they said they'd "have a look at it". Given the 90's is now 11 years ago I'm not holding my breath. And yeah, Candle in the Wind would be No.1, probably followed by I will always love you (Whitney), Gangsta's Paradise (Coolio), Everything I do (Bryan Adams), Blue (Eiffel 65) & I'd do anything... (Meatloaf). We'll see.
Not a single, but does anyone know if Danni Minogues album Club Disco charted in Australia?. I cant find a nything on Pandora but who knows, i may have been looking wrong. Even on the dance or aussie top 20l
Hiya, being a long term member but seldom poster/reviewer I don't socialise as much as I would hope in relation to charts on here so my main question to those in the know
I'm looking for specific charts (a lot of charts maybe)? Not for release here due to the amount I'm looking for as I have been working on a personal itunes playlist project I feel further discussion can be had
To the charts I'm looking for (I'm looking for just a basic digital copy only in any format, can paypal you for your effort to):
Looking for actual KMR/AMR Top 100s basically pre-01/07/1974 and post all the way to #731 20/06/1988 then also looking for ARIA Top 100 from 26/06/1988 all the way up to ARIA report #449 11/10/1998 (of which I started a sub for many years ), so basically looking to have a whole collection of charts (as we are also matching these dates against personal events ) that isn't really displayed in the format I'd hoped in the current chart books on offer though from the information I have seen on this great site I figure someone could help and I could mention names but this is just a specific request I'll ask just this once to see if someone can help me out. cheers
