There are some technical difficulties. However we don't pay for this site. It's completely free. Also, there's nothing else like it so it's all we have.

The police aren’t going to do anything to be honest. What he’s done is really bad, but not illegal at all.

Also, even if he did commit a crime, how would your police even know how to find him? We have no idea where he lives or any personal details apart from his face.

Feel free to report him if you want, but I’m 99.9% certain that they’ll ignore it and probably even laugh at you. 😫

Running up that hill #1 wow there you go it just proves that if the teens of the present day are actually exposed to old music they might like it! It helps that the 1980's sound has been emulated in many recent hits I'm sure. Shame there is and will continue to be a complete lack of diversity in the singles chart these days since the introduction of downloads and streaming that ruined the chart!

Congrats to Kate Bush for getting Running up that hill to #1. Its such an iconic song it deserves this status albeit 37 years late, better late than never I say, and it proves you cant beat the older stuff. Heres hoping it will spark a comeback of older songs.

Congrats to OneRepublic for their highest placing in 8 years, even though ( in my view ) it's with one of their weaker singles. Just beats two of my personal favourites ' Wherever I Go ' and ' I Lived ' ( which Ryan wrote especially for the birth of his son ).

I went last Friday, was a great set from both. Not many artists can fill 60k stadiums over 3 nights! And that was just Manchester. I did have the privilege many years ago to see Ed Sheeran as a support act to snow patrol which was a very intimate event in Las Vegas with around 200 people of the roof of Aria Hotel, which also had a swimming pool with stools in that you could put your feet in! You'll have a great time, although I'm going to see Imagine Dragons tomorrow, I know I'll be loving them as they are always phenomenal

'Snap' currently has 93 scrobbles on my Last FM, while 'Running Up That Hill' has 87, so I'd currently say it's a big contender for #1 unless either of the Pale Waves songs can overtake it (which is looking even more likely by the day!). 😅

Ohh, it seems that Rosa Linn's song took over you so deeply!! 2 wks at the top!!

Three chart records broken for Kate Bush tonight:

- Longest gap between #1 singles for an artist (44 years, 1978-2022).

- Longest time taken to reach #1 after initial release (37 years).

- Oldest female artist to reach #1 on the singles chart (63 years, 11 months).

Should've happened this time last week, but still, congrats to her nonetheless! ❤️

Hi Piran, Kate was also the youngest singer-songwriter and producer to have a number one with Wuthering Heights in 1978. So she is now the youngest and oldest female singer-songwriter / producer to have a number one single.

Woah, she would’ve been around 19 or 20 around then, so yeah, it’s incredible that she’s got both the age records! :O

To be fair, there are a lot of artist’s in their 70’s who get #1 albums fairly frequently! It’s because they always sell well, but rarely get the streaming they need to have massive hits in the main chart. :/

The song never had to grow on me, but I agree that it’s such an impressive achievement & I imagine most chart-watchers from the 80’s are absolutely ecstatic to see a song they grew up with finally at the top after this long, haha. :)

Streaming systems led them out of the singles charts unfortunately

Yeah, you don’t really need streaming for the albums chart, but you do in nearly all cases for the singles chart. :/
