Adele has 53 weeks from 8 songs, I expected more weeks for her, I was also surprised to see RITD and Skyfall didn't go #1 there.

Skyfall had the unfortunate luck being released on a Friday (to mark Bond’s 50th anniversary). The track week in 2012 ended on Saturday nights in 2012 (prior to the 2015 re-shuffle).

 

It debuted at #4 with 84,000 pure sales (Behind 1D’s LWWY, Gangnam Style & Rihanna’s Diamonds) and the next week rose to #2 with 92,000 sales but behind the 135k debut of Don’t You Worry Child.

Impressive, although digital era and streaming era gave more longevity to the songs, I was surprised to see the chart run from some others old singles.

It's #4 this week, but I doubt it will be leaving the top 10 any time soon. It's smashing here.

Different times. Tracks have a lot more longevity nowadays.

I thought UK charts had some rules that were breaking the points in half after a certain time :huh:

We do. The streams-to-sales ratio for tracks whose sales (including streams) have declined for three consecutive weeks and have charted for at least 10 weeks is changed from 150:1 to 300:1 to accelerate the removal of older songs.

 

"Rain on Me" has been charting for 9 weeks so far and has been stable inside the top 5 for its entire chart run. I think it'll stay inside the top 10 for a few more weeks at least.
