Song Stats

Opening

This is the place for anyone curious to find more information about current and past charting songs since January 2004, such as their peak positions, debut date, time spent in my Top 25, Top 10, and/or Top 5, and last chart date. Plus, I have lists of longest charting songs, and other data, so, check it out if you’re interested. There are multiple ways to view the stats, which I explain below. You may browse:

Stats For Songs Charted On My Weekly Top 50

Stats for Lifesongs charting since January 2008

Combined Stats for songs charting on both the Top 50 and Top 20 Lifesongs

To celebrate my milestone of charting for 500 weeks, I've created a one-time special, an overall Top 500! It’s in table format only, however.

Some last notes:

Both the regular and alternate versions of the stats charts are designed to work with JavaScript for pagination. However, you may still access them without it. For the tables, the optional but highly useful script makes the tables

  • sortable by any column heading,
  • split into portions, each containing a preset number of rows that you may configure,
  • and navigable in those portions, via a generated pagination list above the table.
  • My chart records prior to January 2004 are incomplete, so wherever you see “?” or otherwise inexact data for a song, you can safely assume some of the other data for the song is an estimation.
  • My chart records between July 2009 and April 2010 are also incomplete. I did not keep a weekly chart during then, but early in 2010, I did go back and make monthly summary charts, to at least partially account for the missing time. Data for this time period is imprecise, however.
  • Some song titles in the regular versions appear as backgrounded links, signifying they’ve made noteworthy achievements on my weekly Top 50; mouse over on them or “tab” to them to show the achievements.
  • If the table in the regular versions appears cramped at your monitor resolution or window size, feel free to access the smaller, alternate versions.
