Thanks for these Bulion.

I was wondering if I'd ever see the complete Top 100's of the 80s.

I only wish ARIA would release the Top 100 singles and albums for 1988.

I have ARIA 1989 Singles Top 100 if you need it. Not the ARIA Top 100 albums though.

bulion, please, is it possible to know the month of the Gold certification of Neil Young' Greatest Hits?
Unfortunately not borderwolf. I was just given the list of certifications by year, which I copied directly above.
O.K., thanks!
Another question: in 1986 certification levels were 50,000 for Gold and 100,000 for Platinum, right?
ARIA Yearbook 1996 said...

From January 1, 1989 the Gold and Platinum achievement levels have been a consistent 35,000 and 70,000 respectively for both singles and albums. Up to that date, the singles level was set at 50,000 and 100,000 for Gold and Platinum respectively. The level for albums has not changed over the period. Although not officially recognised with awards, multi-platinum achievements are noted on the ARIA charts and as such have been included.

Singles : Gold/50,000, Platinum/100,000
Albums : Gold/35,000, Platinum/70,000
Singles : Gold/50,000, Platinum/100,000
Albums : Gold/35,000, Platinum/70,000
Singles : Gold/50,000, Platinum/100,000
Albums : Gold/35,000, Platinum/70,000
Singles : Gold/35,000, Platinum/70,000, 2xPlatinum/140,000
Albums : Gold/35,000, Platinum/70,000, 2xPlatinum/140,000

AMR as bulion had posted had all singles Gold/50,000, Platinum/100,000, not sure about albums, as Billboard reported would be gold/50,000, Platinum/100,000, as ARIA or ARIA yearbook didn't responsible for that period prior to 1986, had to ask David Kent to verify it.

Not sure if this is the correct place for this request, but even though I'm only up to April 1985 on my weekly 30 Years Ago posts, I'm starting to think about my 1986 posts.

Problem is: I don't have a full set of ARIA chart scans for that year. I have 18 of the 50ish charts that would have been produced in 1986.

If anyone can assist with scans of any of the singles top 50s for that year, please send me a memo and I'll let you know what weeks I'm missing.


Hello, I'm hoping someone can answer a question for me.

In 1986 / 1987 "The Beatles - Twist & Shout" charted.


Has this charted before... If so what year did it debut & what was the # it made it's debut?

If someone could help that would be great. Thank you.
Naters, it first charted in 1964 as an EP with the following tracks...

1) Twist and Shout
2) A Taste of Honey
3) Do You Want to Know a Secret
4) There's a Place

Chart info for it is in the 1964 thread: http://australian-charts.com/forum.asp?todo=viewthread&id=40660
@savagegrant; thank you.

However I clicked the link you supplied and I still don't know it's debut position inside the top 100.
Oh, that I don't know. You'll have to ask buls.
I do know that it entered the Top 20 at #18. That could possibly be its Top 100 debut position too.
I need assistance in the year of 1986 would be greatly appreciated

In the week Cliff Richard & The Young Ones - Living Doll was spending it's second week at #01 I have a discrepancy.


I have x2 songs clashing at #57!

JOHNNYS - (There's Gonna Be A) Showdown
PRINCESS - After The Love Has Gone


In the week Feargal Sharkey - A Good Heart was spending it's first week at #01 I have a discrepancy.


I have x2 songs clashing at #59!

HEART - What About Love
V CAPRI - That's The Way


In the week John Farnham - You're The Voice was spending it's third week at #01 I have a discrepancy.


I have x2 songs clashing at #23!

JOE COCKER - You Can Leave Your Hat On


Two of them are actual peak positions with another being a debut week so I'm confident someone can resolve this.
I have V-Capri down as #59 in that week and then rising to #53 the following week.

Princess at 57, Johnnys at 58 in that week.

Joe Cocker at 23, Rose Tattoo at 28 in that week.

Thank you very much Gavin!

I have updated my spread sheet so now all positions are accounted for.
