Nice site you've created, but just a small(-ish) bone of contention - technically, the peaks you've listed from #51 to #100 inclusive are not 'ARIA' top 100 singles from 1989, as, as far as I'm aware, no-one has positions 51-100 of the weekly singles charts from 1989, other than one from March 1989, which was published here.

When In Rome's 'The Promise', for example, peaked at #103 on the ARIA singles chart (I asked them for the peak a while back), which is quite different to its peak on the AMR chart (#71).

Furthermore, through requests for chart peaks myself and others have asked for from ARIA, there are a number of singles that peaked within the ARIA top 100 that missed the AMR top 100, such as Malcolm McLaren's 'Something's Jumping In My Shirt' (#95), Howard Jones' 'Everlasting Love' (#91), Cliff Richard's 'I Just Don't Have the Heart' (#100), Sonia's 'Can't Forget You' (#98) and Brother Beyond's 'The Harder I Try' (#78, though not sure yet when this one peaked), plus a few we've uncovered from 1988.

That is correct. The list is called the Every ARIA Top 100 Single in 1989 for simplicity's sake. Much in the same way as the Every AMR Top 100 Single in 1988 list containing ARIA chart information for roughly the second half of the year. I'd like to eventually add the confirmed ARIA #51-#100 peakers for 1988/89 and add asterisks to denote AMR chart information in the 1989 list and likewise the ARIA chart information in the 1988 list. It's on the to-do list.

Some day I'd like to extend the Every Unique AMR Top 100 Single of 1993-2005 list to include the 1990-1992 and 2006-2009 periods and once the 1988/89 data is sorted out, it can be further updated to become a 1988-2009 list.
^ Sounds like a mammoth task!

My only real beef with this is... occasionally, someone who isn't familiar with the intricacies of ARIA vs AMR peaks in the era where both charts ran concurrently might use your site as a source, and wrongly attribute a peak from the second half of 1988, or 1989, as an ARIA peak, when it isn't. Sure, if they do so, it's down to their own sloppy research, but it perpetuates inaccurate information. I have seen your site cited on wikipedia for chart information, for example, though I don't think I've yet encountered it used to source an outside the top 50 peak from this era - but I'm sure it has been.

Thanks for those Nugs. You've saved me some time. Hopefully I can update the 1988/89 lists with the appropriate data now sooner rather than later. Though, I'm going to have trouble adding entries for singles that made the ARIA chart and not the AMR chart without having any entry dates.
^ I have entry dates for a couple of those. However, they're chart entry dates (which could be outside the top 100) rather than specific top 100 entry dates.

Maybe it's easiest to just leave it as it is.
Any entry dates would do, even if they're just estimates.
