Forum - ARIA Charts: Special Occasion Charts - Top 5,000 Biggest Singles (1975-2016)

Not one to do things by halves, if I was going to ever do an All Time list of singles, it has to be BIG!!!

The following list is my representation of the biggest singles since the first full year of the AMR singles charts (1975), through to the present ARIA charts (2016). I've explained in better detail my elements make up my points in the nearly "re-booted" Fun Countdowns thread, so I won't go through too much here. Just want to point out hits from 2010 onwards are scored at half rate compared to those pre-2010. A single accredited at 8xPlatinum nowadays would be compared to a 4xPlatinum single of old. I think this makes it fair, given the price, and availability of singles these days (not to mention a list list singles according to sales would almost definitely have a Top 100 made of entirely of songs from the last 7 years!). This is more of a chart positions list, with a twist of sales in it.

(If you're confused by an old song of Gold Accreditation sitting alongside a 2xPlatinum single of late, check out their chart runs and you will probably find an overall similarity)

One extra thing is that success from multiple versions of a song, as long as it is released by exactly the same artist, will be combined. That means songs like John Paul Young's "Love Is In The Air" will have the original 70's version, and "Ballroom Mix" version from Strictly Ballroom combined. A song such as "The Best" by Tina Turner will be counted separately to the Tina Turner and Jimmy Barnes version, as it was released by (technically) different artist. A song such as "All Night Long" by Lionel Richie would have both the original and 2011 version combined, as I don't considered a featured artist (Guy Sebastian in this case) to be part of the overall artist accreditation. Just a personal rule that I go by here.

I've made it so big so to capture most songs that find Top Ten success as a minimum. I also find the biggest hits are the ones we get sick of, while those lower hits we all grow a personal attachment to, so I wanted everyone to be able to see where their faves came in overall.

I'm not sure how often this will be updated for the overall list (can you imagine typing out 5,000 songs), but I will be trying to do monthly updates with current hits to add in. Let's see how I go.

Hope you enjoy!

Looks good Chr8topher.
Already right that the sentimental and personal feelings will be much lower down on the list. Come What May is from my favourite movie ever, Moulin Rouge - I must have watched that movie hundreds of times now. Outta My Head (Ay Ya Ya) was also a song I somehow adored when it came out - I remember saturday mornings being so excited when it came on Rage (a program I haven't bothered with in years since it got so bad) - I also remember HATING America's Suitehearts with a burning passion for no real good reason.

Looking forward to this list, I'll try to contribute everytime it updates with my personal faves. Looking forward to seeing where those Evanescence hits fell
Oh yes!! Thanks in advance chri8topher.
Oh wow this is a very big task.

Nice to see 22, Shine, Clocks & China Girl sneak in.
I'm not convinced Chop Suey! will survive another month so I'll enjoy it while it lasts

From this section only Tokyo (Vampires And Wolves) really connects with me Woulda been funny for Rise to not be there. Guess this means Stay With Me Baby is the only #1 to not make the list?
F**k You by Lily Allen has some interesting connection to me, mostly because my partner used to play it all the god damn time because he thought it was hilarious when I so much as sneezed - Wing$ was also my favourite song for a while when it came out, and I forgot Rudebox even existed until now!
Two #1's didn't make the cut.
Ahh must be Britney Spears - Everytime then?
I'm inclined to think Shout It Out on the basis of being the other #1 hit that missed the EOY but not just (partially) because it was split between two years?
There is also a song that was a #1 hit in the early 70s that just made the cut because of a 1982 re-release.

Is Mr Know-it-all by Kelly Clarkson one of the number ones not to make the list? It had one week at the top and then sunk like a stone.

Otherwise I have no idea.

I wasn't going to go as far as publishing the points for each song, but couldn't resist the added information.

The points listed here was originally an estimated sales value created via the chart positions. It really worked more during the 90's, but was pretty good for the 2000's, as well. Sales can never be predicted using chart positions alone, so it's more of a representation of sales and chart success combined overall. Singles from the 70's and 80's would have sold less, while singles post 2010 have sold significantly more as a unit. The points for both the before and after 90's/2000's period would be an adjusted sales estimate, should those singles have charted during the "control" period.

Funnily I am watching a replay of a Max 80s vs 90s Chartoppers countdown with Buffalo Soldier in the mix. Yet it wasn't as big a hit as many songs that are now forgotten. Same as Dreams which was the biggest single on one of the biggest album of all time (Rumours). Seems that many people brought the album instead. Interesting countdown.

Love primadonna, and the laughable Crack A Bottle was clearly Eminems worst song I'd think
Also nice to see Avril's almost-meta 'Here's To Never Growing Up' on here. She's releasing a new album this year, and I'm hoping she can release a more modern song and beat her recent track record of only mid-hit-lead-singles
From the last couple of sections I really love Want U Back, Wild Things, Coin Laundry, Mr. Brightside, Nobody's Home, Sail, Needed Me, Cool Girl, Everyone's Waiting, Primadonna, Gold On The Ceiling & HTNGU.

@bsb745 There's a bunch of album tracks from Relapse that i dislike much more than Crack A Bottle. Songs like Insane are pretty hard to listen to without cringing

* Carried over from 1974 charts
Touch My Body is good, in part because it's just so Mariah - I think Put It In A Love Song was what had a music video promised for like 2 years but still never delivered

Big Girls Cry is such a forgettable Sia song, and Talk is one of the few Coldplay songs I like. Alright section.
Great to see Touch My Body, Teenage Crime, Mountain Sound and Internet Friends there.
Touch My Body is such a disgrace to music.

Big Girls Cry is one of the best pop songs of the decade, should be higher! Coldplay's Talk, Put It IOn A Love Song, Internet Friends and Irresistible are good.
Sitting it here makes me really see that Don't Look Back In Anger probably deserved better in the charts. End Of Fashion didn't

"Body Movin" by the Beastie Boys was a bigger hit than "Intergalactic". Wouldn't have picked that. Also interesting that "Don't Stop" from Fleetwood Mac's Rumours than Dreams. Interesting to see whether Rumours recharts with its 40th anniversary coming up shortly.
Belly Dancer by Akon was admittedly a guilty pleasure for me. Nine In The Afternoon is AMAZING and one of my all time favourites. Most people on this site know my love for p!atd of course. Truly amazing. Love The Fall was super overrated on this site Or maybe by one or two members. I'm A Slave 4 U is great, but I'm VERY shocked that Smooth Criminal is so low?? It seems like it should have been a way bigger hit????
"Smooth Criminal" was the seventh single from Bad and only reached a peak of 29 on its release in 1988. After Michael Jackson died, it reached a new peak of 16. The Alien Ant Farm cover was a much bigger song in Australia reaching number 1.

Source https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smooth_Criminal

I recall that Chuck E's in Love was a much bigger hit in 1979. I recall it being a top 10 hit on Countdown but Countdown may not have used the same charts. Alternatively, my memory may be wrong.

Oh I don't mean on this list, I mean for such a culturally well known song I'm shocked it wasnt, at the very least, a big top 5 hit.
That's because in those days, people bought something called albums instead

Cool to see Cool, Jealous & Nutbush City Limits
Interesting to see the Gambler finish so low given that it is a regular in Jinx's catalogue songs chart. However, it probably charts so slow that it doesn't gain points for it. Having checked The Gambler was 44 on Hijinx's Unofficial Catalogue Charts. It is one of those songs which didn't chart all that well but has a long afterlife.

I'll expect the classic version of Nutbush City Limits to chart when the GoSet charts are added.

Actually, Nutbush will be in this list. I think this song is the very borderline of having the different versions combined. I made the rule that the (main) artist had to be EXACTLY the same for combining, and the two Nutbush's were by Ike & Tina Turner, and Tina Turner. Even though, I suspect, the 90's version wasn't re-recorded, it was still released by technically a different artist.

Given more thought for a future list with older charts, I might decide this should be combined.
Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo is always a fun song. I Want Candy tbh always felt like a song that didn't actually exist, but everyone knew. It's fun though

I want Candy was originally a hit for the Strangeloves in the 1960s and then Bow Wow had a hit with it in 1981. The Bow Wow Wow version may feature later on.

"Imagine" should be another song to get a bump from when the Go Set charts are added.

Wish I had more music knowledge of the 70s to the 90s
Well...here's your chance. Actually, the 70's and 80's are the original versions of the songs you're listening to now.
One Day I'll Fly Away Always loved that song, though particularly as the Nicole Kidman version from Moulin Rouge! Hopefully I can find some more opportunities to talk about how much I love that movie lol.

Paris To Berlin was one of my favourites then and I still listen to it when I'm with friends now, I'm convinced it's one of the original bangers.

Scars To Your Beautiful I of course love now, charting it currently - it doesn't look like it'll ever land somewhere impressive on this chart, but I'm glad it's in the chart anyway!
There's been a lot for me to love so far! Knock You down in particular!
