The Single Top 100[1] is a Dutch "chart, based on official physical "single sales, legal "downloads and since July 2013 streaming and composed by "MegaCharts. It is one of the three official charts, the other two being the "Dutch Top 40 and the "Mega Top 50. The difference is that these charts also include "airplay data. The list is especially intended for the "music industry and those who take an interest in charts. In Dutch "TV programmes the Single Top 100 is often cited, although it has not been broadcast since December 2006.

History[edit]

The predecessor of the Single Top 100 started on 23 May 1969 as the Hilversum 3 Top 30. Originally it was broadcast by the "VPRO and ever since December 1970 by the "NOS. It was presented by "Willem van Kooten. In 1971 Felix Meurders hosted the radio show. He renamed it the Daverende Dertig. In June 1974 the Nationale Hitparade became the official chart of Hilversum 3. It was a top 30 until the number of entries was extended to 50 in June 1978. The "TROS took over the programme in 1985. "AVRO's popular music chart television programme "TopPop used the chart from 1974 to 1978 and from 1981 to 1986. The Nationale Hitparade became a top 100 in 1987. In February 1993 it was followed by the Mega Top 50 and in 1997 by the Mega Top 100. The Mega Top 50 should not be mixed up with the current "3FM "Mega Top 50, which is a different chart, not being solely based on "record sales.

Throughout the years, the chart has had several names and lengths:

The Single Top 100 and predecessors have never had any rules which prevented records from rising in the chart after having dropped. Re-entries occur frequently. The first record that got up again to number 1 was Soley soley by "Middle of the Road late 1971. Geef mij je angst by "Guus Meeuwis (in 2005) and "4 Minutes by "Madonna featuring "Justin Timberlake and "Timbaland (in 2008) rose 3 times to number one. Blijf bij mij by "André Hazes and "Gerard Joling even rose 4 times to the top position in 2007.

Year-end charts[edit]

Year-end charts of the Single Top 100 and predecessors were compiled from 1970 until 1978 by adding up points. From 1978 onwards they have been compiled on the basis of record sales.[2]

  2. ^ Contrary to the "Mega Top 100" the "Dutch Top 40 still adds up points to produce year-end charts. The difference can be illustrated by looking at 1997 when the double A-sided single "Something About the Way You Look Tonight/"Candle in the Wind 1997 by "Elton John ended up on #19 in the year-end charts of the Top 40. 18 other singles had acquired more points during 1997. According to the compilers of the Single Top 100 it was the best sold single in the Netherlands as it sold 580.000 copies, far more than any other single that year. It turned even out to be the best sold single ever in the Netherlands.
