Top 10 Number One Singles


The Top TenXW

1Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

I am a Queen addict, and of course any one who knows Queen loves this song. And of course, it was the best. I love it a lot. You can never get sick of it, and this is also what introduced me to Queen.

2Billie Jean - Michael Jackson
3Someone Like You - Adele
4Don't Look Back In Anger - Oasis
5Hey Jude - The Beatles
6Imagine - John Lennon
7...Baby One More Time - Britney Spears
8I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston
9Dancing Queen - ABBA
10Ernie (The Fastest Milkman in the West) - Benny Hill

This was a song that was released before political correctness became cool.

Funny little novelty song that got the Christmas #1 in it's year.

The Contenders

11Can't Get You Out of My Head - Kylie Minogue
12Back for Good - Take That
13Don't You Want Me - The Human League
14Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel
15Take On Me - A-ha
16America - Razorlight
17Ruby - Kaiser Chiefs
18Do the Bartman - Bart Simpson
19She Loves You - The Beatles

Not only did the boys have the most #1 singles of any act in history, they did it legitimately.
Most artists, from MJ, to Mariah Carey, to Madonna, engage in "track mining", where they go back time and time again to successful albums, and lift tracks to be released as singles.
The Beatles considered this disrespectful to the fans.
Had they chosen to do so, they could have had in the neighborhood of 70 or more #1 singles instead of just 26.
For example, "A Day In the Life", "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", and "In My Life" would all have easily become #1, but were never released as singles.

20Waterloo - Abba
