  1. Wow. Surprised by the lack of chart success of some of these. Have some of them on cassingle, remember some of them being flogged by rage and mtv and radio too.

  2. Hello - would it be possible to add another column and include the "peak date"?

    If you can that would be great.

    Thank you.

    1. While I could do that, it would take some time, as I haven't added that info to my spreadsheets. It would also be difficult to add another column to the formatting of this post, given that it already takes up the full column width.

      I could maybe add it to new weekly posts I write from now on, though.
