But since streaming is extremely dominant these days (at least as far as the singles chart is concerned) it unfortunately is possible that it still didn't make the top 100 due to the lack of streams. Seems crazy but I guess that's what it is.
It probably wouldnt have been though. Its like saying The Pop Kids would have been number 1 without downloads, if you see what i'm getting at. All those songs between 44 and the Pop kids final resting place, would have sold a lot more downloads instead if streaming wasnt available.

Not that it really matters anyway. The singles chart is not even a singles chart anymore. Its gone completely.

You're right it really doesn't matter but on the official charts page there was TPK at #1 in physicals and at around #67 or something in downloads only. So I guess #44 in total is accurate nonetheless (without streaming).

It's all about Super anyway now.

Edited that. Yeah it's millions. There's a new book out about Christmas number 1s and it's riddled with errors apparently.

But 27 million is not much at all in number of streams, especially not for a big 80s hit like Always on my mind

The thing is a proper version of the video wasn't uploaded until 5 years ago or so on Youtube, for example.

It’s only in the U.K, so it’s quite alright.

I still think it is blocked in the USA or somewhere because Youtube views had dropped from 27000 views to 10000 views from one day to the next day all of a sudden.

While the video is still viewed 10000 times, views of Top of the Pops version are climbing up.
