Terrific thread, am only 22 but am really enjoying finding out what positions classic pre 1989 songs reached! Could I please have Slim Dusty, Chad Morgan, Al Stewart and Alan O'Day chart positions? Thanks heaps.
This isn't a pre-1989 question, but it's probably the most suitable thread for it anyway. Can anyone tell me the post-1989 below top 50 peaks for Prince's albums? (Because I'm pretty sure he has some) Thanks a lot if you can, I've been wondering about this for a while.
Ss112, you can find the rest of Prince's charting albums in the Pre 1989 Album listing posting, which I just updated for you (and everybody else). When you're in the thread, just use Ctrl and F and type in Prince, and it will take you there eventually. Last edited:
thanks Bulion! It's hard to believe that Peggy only had one #1 single in Australia... I also thought she would have charted with more singles in the 40s/50s... Glad to see "Baubles, Bangles & Beads", that's one of my favorite tracks from her.
How many times has "Bali Ha'i" charted? I love the versions by Peggy and Perry Como.
As always, thanks bulion! Surprised that The Move didn't do somewhat better. Disappointed but not surprised Joe Tex didn't do better -- he has some FANTASITC 60s singles that no-one seems to have heard!
A couple more for you while I think about 'em: Cilla Black and Sandie Shaw.
Cheers for the info bulion, you really know your stuff and your info is always very well presented
I really like what you did with the 80s year by year threads, mentioning the peak position for every song that charted in that particular year. Helped fill in a few gaps in my collection. Perhaps you could do this for the 50s, 60s, 70s and 90s although I understand it would be a lot of work
In the meantime, could I please have the chart positions for...
Billy J. Kramer (and the Dakotas) Freddie and the Dreamers J.D. Souther Johnny Tillotson Johnny O'Keefe Joe Jones
I was wondering if I could please get the info for Sherbert (especially Howzatt & Summer Love) & Sweet (especially Fox On The Run) Maybe any Olivia Newton John info from the 70's - especially the Grease stuff (if you could include Frankie Valli's Grease that would be great)?
hello from here.while talking to a t.v. reporter to get publicity for my ''generic graffiti'' youtube clips,i was recorded searching these chart lists of yours.one,you've been broadcast,so congratulations.two,the acts i was searching for still aren't here,even though the chart bits i have make them look quite successful there.could you please list the chart singles for suzi quatro and neil diamond?i'd be much obliged.
The Top100 from Crash Test Dummies, Tina Turner, Babylon Zoo and Spin Doctors? And was Chrissy Steele, Dschinghis Khan and Soul Sister in the charts? And was the song "This Is It" from Michael Jackson in these charts? Last edited:
i think i know how to work this thing now,i think.i've been trying to get information off the internet since 1998,and from my first day on,i still cannot get a chart listing of australian hits for the great del shannon.a librarian called me and read part of the old ''oznet'' #1 list,and when she said ''swiss maid'' was on it,that's when i stopped ignoring the internet.so,after 12 years of debris,opinion and perverse habits posted by whoknowswhat,could somebody please tell me how del did there?you give him his last chart record,so a sincere thank you.
...as for the Australian charts pre 1989 I don't believe there is online access, as I've been looking myself for a year or two to no avail. They're available in book form though. bulion might be able to shed some more light on this for you...
ah,after twelve years!!thank you very much for the stats.and thank you for the suzi quatro and neil diamond lists earlier.i wanted theirs more for research purposes.her having 3 #1s was quite rare anywhere before madonna had hers because of the video era.and how could neil diamond have such massive album success and not only not have a #1 single,but barely threaten the top five?anyroad,thankya.and because of youtube,i can finally hear the col joye and johnny o'keefe songs i've been writing the data for.if america gets less creative,i'll take a bus the the coast and swim there.probobly soon!
The Village People's positions were in the first part, you should learn to look first. But I'll post them here anyway.
(thanks to Beanster)

Thanks for the info on Goanna - much appreciated. Could you please find out the chart positions for singles & albums by The Loved Ones, and could you do the same for Johnny Young (could be Johnny Young and Kompany).
thanks for the above bulion, I do appologise for the large request, but I didn't expect you to do them all at once. won't post quite so many next time. when I saw spatz-98's request list, I got a little carried away lol
You can put more requests in here, but be aware from Wednesday the 13th of October I am without internet for at least 10 days, so doing any requests will be put on hold until I am electronically alive again. Moving house is such a bitch!
No probs bulion, yes moving house is definately a bitch, it's amazing how much stuff we accumulate over time. Anyways, I'll leave my next set of requests with you to do when you next get the chance, thanks in advance.
Bobby Darin The Equals Frankie Lymon (and the Teenagers) Jackie Wilson The Merseybeats Percy Sledge Smokey Robinson (and the Miracles) Toots and the Maytals Last edited:
Was the Song "Living Eyes" from Bee Gees in the charts? And Neil Young, Frank Stallone, Double You, Undercover and Michelle Gayle? And was a song named "I'm Your Little Boy" in the charts, maybe? Last edited:
And Jimmy Somerville, DJ Dado, Luniz, Mighty Dub Kats, Skee-Lo, K'naan, The Rays, Bobby Helms, Bill Justis? And were East 17, E-17, Nas and Boyzone in the peaks 51-100? And were Backstreet Boys, Robbie Williams and Bon Jovi 2009 or 2010 in the chart-peaks 51-100? Thank you, bulion. Last edited:
Please these artists too (pre-ARIA): Aerosmith Alan Parsons Project Asia The Band Black Sabbath Blue Oyster Cult Blues Brothers Bob Marley The Cure Cutting Crew The Foundations Frank Zappa Garth Brooks Harold Melvin The Impressions The Isley Brothers James Brown Janis Joplin
Was during their chart runs on the Australian chart, was Healing Hands or Sacrifice by Elton John ever accredited in the printed ARIA chart as Sacrifice/Healing Hands like it was when it went to #1 in the UK or were those 2 songs two clear, distinct entries on the Australian chart?
BillyBrett, accreditation happened after "Sacrifice" was on the downward slide, very near the end of its chart run it was given the Gold Sales certification. "Healing Hands" was not certified at all. And yes, they were TWO separate chart entities here in Australia...
Were "Sin With Sebastian", New World, Gala, The Braids, Sue Thompson, Andru Donalds, The Blue Boy, Nightcrawlers, Cappella, MC Lyte, Shola Ama, Annie Lennox, Adamski, Jamie Walters in the charts? And were Culture Beat, E-Rotic, Peter Andre, Dr Dre, OneRepublic, Wilson Pillips, Steve Miller Band, Londonbeat, Faithless and R. Kelly in the peaks 51-100 since '89? And was the song "Everything About You" from Ugly Kid Joe in the charts? Last edited:
And were Elton John, Los Umbrellos, Joe Cocker, In-Mood, Dario G, Moby, Monie Love, Lene Marlin, M People, Eurythmics, Scooter, Shaggy, Madonna, Crowded House, Aerosmith, Milow, OMD, Eros Ramazzotti, Enigma, Blondie, Mariah Carey, The Pharcyde, Savage Garden, Safri Dou and "Sash!" at peaks 51-100 since '89? And Curiosity / Curiosity Killed The Cat, Band Aid? Last edited:
