I thought that you may find this Global Hits Singles Site of interest. Queen Fans always think that Queen were bigger than ABBA
- everywhere. However, they are only the World's 33rd biggest Singles Act, and ABBA are 9th. In Germany, ABBA had 21 Top 10
Singles - 9 at No.1. Queen were huge in the German Album Chart, (as were ABBA), but not big in the German Singles Chart. They
'only' had 10 Top 10 Singles in Germany. ABBA spent 239 Weeks in the German Singles Top 10. That's the 3rd most ever. Queen
never had any No.1 Singles there, and their 59 Top 10 Weeks are only enough for 190th place in the All Time German Singles Acts...
A French Guy, called Eric, has a Worldwide Hit Singles Site. He has made a Table/Graph for each Act, and you can see all of
their Hit Singles Peak Positions, in a lot of Countries. You just 'Click-On' the Act on the right hand side, to see all of their Global Hit
Singles. In the Graphs he also tells you how many World No.1's they had, and Top 5's, Top 10's etc. He uses the Main/Official Singles
Chart for each Country. However, he's used the wrong Singles Chart for Canada. He has 'Dancing Queen' as a No.2 Hit there. In the
Main Singles Chart, it was No.1 for 2 Weeks. So ABBA should have 132 Global No.1 Singles, in their Graph - not 131...Beneath each
Act's Graph/Table he has put their Hits in more obscure Charts, such as those of: Turkey, Israel, Yugoslavia, Denmark, Poland, Greece,
Portugal, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Mexico etc.
LINK 2 -- THE TOP 494 GLOBAL SINGLES ACTS
Eric has also used a Points System, to work out the World's Top 494 Singles Acts - based on the Peaks of their Hit Singles in each Country.
Some Acts are rather low in the List, such as Queen, (No.33), Coldplay, (No.39), and Bruce Springsteen, (No.90). This is because they were
far bigger as Global Album Chart Acts. They'd be much higher, if it were a List based on the World's Album Charts...
NOTE -- Eric's Top 494 Acts List is only based on those Acts that he's chosen to work on - so far. There will be some Acts - that he's yet to
work on - who would be on the List.
