50 Years Of Hits: an international A-Z of hitmakers 1952-2002

Publisher: Southgate Publishers Ltd.
ISBN: 1-85741-140-4 (paperback)
ISBN 13: 978-1-85741-140-9
Publication Date: 2002

This book lists the UK's top 5,000 singles from the first chart of November 1952 through to 2002. The hits are ranked not by sales, but by a points system that awards its marks on a sliding scale: 40 points for a number 1 hit, 39 points for a number 2 and just one point for a number 40. Points are also awarded to reflect the number of weeks a single spent in the chart. According to this system the New Seekers' biggest hits would be ranked as follows (page 120):

1. I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing
2. Never Ending Song Of Love
3. You Won't Find Another Fool Like Me
4. Beg, Steal Or Borrow
5. Circles
6. I Get A Little Sentimental Over You
