Number 1 Singles - 1980s

Our main database does not give the precise date that a record reached the Number 1 spot. That situation is remedied here. The tables below list the running total of different number 1s, the date the track reached the peak, artist name, song title(s) and weeks at the summit.

The dates given below are for 'week ending'. Note that you can quickly and easily find the 'realtime' Number 1 for any given date via our date engine

(See the faqs for the difference between 'week ending' and 'realtime' Number 1.)
