Radio 2 TOP 2000 The chart of the top 2000 has been published. Last year was an anniversary edition. The position in the chart was the total of the previous nine years, average if you want. This year is a regular one again. Comparing the 2009 chart with 2008 gives strange results. For that reason a comparison with 2007 has been made.
Magna Carta is in the chart with two songs:
This is a very good score!
From the 2000 songs in the chart only 6 songs are on the same position as it was in 2007.
One of these songs is the number one: Bohemian Rhapsody.
There are 217 new songs and 85 songs that re-entered the chart.
From the other songs 977 are down and 715 went up.
Biggest differences are for:
The first 5 songs from the top 10 are the same as in 2007. All the other songs are new in the top 10 but not new in the chart. The highest entry this year is Coldplay with Viva la vida on position 11.
The band with the most songs in the chart are The Beatles. Their total this year has fallen to 52, still a lot. The Rolling Stones follow with 33 songs. Abba follows Michael JAckson with 24 songs. The other bands with more than ten songs are: Elvis Presley, Bee Gees, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Fleetwood Mac, Marco Borsato, Bløf, Boudewijn de Groot, Cats, Creedence Clearwater Revival, David Bowie, Dire Straits, Eagles, Golden Earring, De Dijk, Neil Diamond and Supertramp. Together this are almost 400 songs!
The total number of artists (or combinations of artists) is 823. Most of them 480 only have one song in the chart. Amongst them are famous artists like: The Velvet Underground, Venice, Traveling Wilburys, The Band, John Hiatt, Everly Brothers, Gloria Gaynor, Clannad.

The final magazine
The farewell concert. May 11, 2009
We are now on the final run to The Carré and it seems as though all hell has been let loose as we are now working on the final promotion.
Luckily we have the help of Simône of Le Roy Productions.
She is doing a wonderful job, has great ideas and, on the night, you will see a marriage of theatre and music.
This is something that we have always wanted to see as regards 'Lord of the Ages' but the whole show will be given the 'Royal' treatment by Simone
and that will be something that you shouldn't miss.
