My 2008 Top 100

Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria

Based on year-end chart “sales” taken from chart runs points…

INFO: POSITION/PEAK/WKS and the sales figures are those I’ve been using for 40 years for each chart position (based on an actual 1976 UK chart proportions) but as a quick guide, if you halve them that’s about the UK equivalent, my sales are overgenerous.
