Hey y'all! I plan on starting my chart on Friday, and I wanted to go over its operation for you:
It'll be a Top 40 chart, with the remaining songs (41-50) being a Bubbling Under extension. (EDIT: effective for the chart dated March 6, 2020, the Bubbling Under extension has been discontinued.)
The chart will be updated every Friday. (Tracking weeks will run from Friday-Thursday with the exception of this week's chart as my last.fm wasn't created until Sunday so the first chart will be Sunday-Thursday)
I will be using the Hot Shot Debut and Greatest Gainer terms as they become applicable, and I'll obviously have a count of where a song was over the previous and current weeks, as well as it's peak position and how many weeks it's been on the chart. If a song hits #1, I'll also count how many weeks it was there.
Only songs as recent as the past couple years are allowed to chart (for instance, it's only the beginning of February so I will allow certain songs from 2018 to chart, but as 2020 progresses, only 2019-20 will be allowed to chart.) Also I'll include live performances if they are released as singles or albums (for instance, "k bye for now")
No recurrency! If I deem a song ready to go, then it's gone lol
Mostly singles, but I will allow album tracks to chart if I listen to them often enough (for instance, "Cruel Summer" would've been #1 for weeks and weeks because I'd listened to it so often when the parent album came out)
EDIT to clarify about album tracks: I will sometimes treat them as singles especially if I feel that the parent album's era was cut off too short or if I disagree with a single choice and would rather chart the preferred song.
Please let me know if you'd like to be tagged! <3
