2010 data

Postby ukcharts » Wed Jan 05, 2011 7:22 pm

A few interesting points to note from the 2010 charts.

Of 35 #1s from 2010 1/3 were only available as downloads (or, eventually, on compilations, but no physical "single" release). Not great for collectors or those who prefer their virtual music in uncompressed quality.

The top selling single of 2010, Love The Way You Lie by Eminem ft Rihanna, was not only not released as a physical single but didn't even make it to #1.

The second best selling single of 2010 only entered the chart on Xmas Day (When We Collide by Matt Cardle). It's a decent enough tune, although I prefer the original (Many Of Horrors by Biffy Clyro, also currently in the chart), but that just goes to prove the marketing monster that is X-Factor.

Millward Brown miscalculated the chart containing Xmas Day and had to re-publish with a few of the positions changed. It's not the first time the Xmas charts have been wrong, but it begs the questions what, exactly, needs calculating? Surely it's all computerised, and I'd expect they receive the sales figures from both PoS and online daily, if not more often. It seems to me that they somehow added in an average PoS figure for Xmas Day itself, in effect guessing the sales for that day, then realising after the event that almost all PoS are shut on Xmas Day.
