Summary

January

The first week of the month was the last week at the top for 2001's Christmas chart topper, a modern rendition of "Somethin' Stupid", by Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman. Returning to the top for one final week was Daniel Bedingfield's debut single, "Gotta Get Thru This". It broke the record for lowest weekly sale for a number one single, selling only 25,500 copies in that week. The single was to decline slightly during 2002, but rapidly after the year's end. The remainder of the month was to be incredibly morbid. Dying in a plane crash in the summer of 2001 at the young age of 22, R'n'B vocalist, Aaliyah hit the top with her posthumous release, "More Than a Woman". She had broken a record in the US, becoming the first artist to make No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 based solely upon airplay points, with her single "Try Again". Overtaking her was what made this month significant. Ex-Beatle, George Harrison died in November of 2001. Due to popularity in the Beatles and as a solo artist, the nation was very upset and shocked, due to him being the youngest member of the band. His #1 from 1971, "My Sweet Lord" was re-issued and shot straight to the top of the charts. Despite only lasting a week, it broke two records. It became the first time in UK chart history a posthumous release has taken over from another posthumous release.

Spawning two #5 singles, the album remained at the top for 3 weeks in this return, one more week than its original stay. This made its total number of weeks at the top 5.

February

Spanish performer Enrique Iglesias was next to hit the top with what many see as his UK Breakthrough (though he had two top ten in two years prior) with the single release of the ballad "Hero" which stayed at the top for four weeks. He made himself and his father Julio Iglesias the first father/son combination to top the charts separately and as solo artists. His father had hit the top of the UK charts over 20 years before Enrique did, when his cover version of "Begin The Beguine" went to the top in 1981.

Overtaking the totals of pop phenomenon’s Spice Girls and ABBA, Westlife hit the top for a record 10th time, with their third release from their third album, "World Of Our Own". The album of the same name, became their second consecutive #1 album. They now had as many number ones as the queen of pop herself, Madonna. They also were the act to obtain 10 chart toppers the quickest (now 5 acts had achieved 10 or more) with only 35 months between this and their first. However, it could be said this record is unfair, because it was only a few months after that the Beatles managed to achieve 10, but they tended to spend several weeks at the summit, slowing down their release rate, whereas most of Westlife's #1's spend one to two weeks at the top. Taking over was the fastest selling debut single in UK chart history. Winner of the TV talent show, Pop Idol, Will Young had been voted as the winner by over 4 million people in the final. It was an unexpected win as most expected runner up Gareth Gates to take the crown. His debut single "Anything is Possible/Evergreen", topped the charts for 3 weeks and sold over 1.1 million copies in its first week of sale, making it the fastest selling debut single in UK chart history. Altogether it sold over 1.7 million copies becoming the 11th biggest selling single in the UK.

A 2 week run at the top was next from 80's band Police. Experiencing massive success in the early 80's with 5 #1 singles, lead singer, Sting eventually went solo and became a very successful and highly respected musician, especially in the US. A combination of his greatest hits and the Police's greatest hits was released entitled The Very Best of Sting & The Police.

April

Taking over from the winner of the show, Pop Idol, runner up Gareth Gates scored a #1 with his debut single, "Unchained Melody". Incredibly he spent one further week at the summit than Will Young did, becoming the second single of the year to have a 4 week run at #1. However, the single itself sold less than Will Young's, selling only 1.3 million copies, but nonetheless it became the 77th million selling single in the UK and the last one until 2004. Overall, it is the 37th biggest selling single in the UK. The more incredible thing about this song is that it is the fourth single to reach the summit 4 times by different artists. First was Jimmy Young in 1955, then a re-issue of the Righteous Brothers in 1990, then the acting duo Robson & Jerome took it the top in 1995 and finally Gareth Gates in 2002. Robson & Jerome's version remains the biggest selling to date. Scoring their 6th UK chart topper Oasis returned to the top of the UK charts with a track similar to their older material, "The Hindu Times".

The top of the albums chart was dominated by a lady with a powerful voice and her 5th UK #1 album, Céline Dion with A New Day Has Come. Staying at the top for 4 weeks, she did not hit the top again for the next 2 years, but continued charting throughout. The album's singles did not fair as well as the album, one making the Top 10, one settling in the Top 20 and one just creeping into the Top 40.

Elvis scored a 16th chart topper in 1970, when he revived his career in Las Vegas. Then a single made just before his death was released after his death in May 1977 and went straight to No.1, giving him his 17th UK #1. The two biggest music acts in the UK were neck and neck, and despite numerous posthumous releases, it wasn't until 25 years later that one of them finally took the lead.

Having been a successful band throughout the 80's the 90's was a slightly quieter decade for the group, but the release of Californication turned them around in 2000 and By the Way helped propel them straight to the top.

This time it was Blondie's 1980 chart topper "The Tide Is High", which they changed slightly to make "The Tide Is High (Get The Feeling)".

After both having two chart toppers, the two "Pop Idols", Will Young & Gareth Gates joined forces and revived an old Beatles classic, "The Long and Winding Road". It gave them both their 3rd UK chart topper and established both of them as national stars. However, it was from here that Gareth would slowly decline and Will would rise to become an even bigger star. The B-side to this was Gareth's re-working of Elvis' classic #2 from 1969, "Suspicious Minds". Will Young's version of Jackie Wilson's" Sweetest Feeling" also appeared on the B-side The year was proving to be very successful for Elvis in many ways and there was one great album success to still be received. Next to hit the top, but only for a week were three Spanish sisters, Las Ketchup with a holiday novelty song "The Ketchup Song (Asjere)". What was probably considered the tune of 2002 came next and was a duet between US rapper Nelly and Kelly Rowland, a member of Destiny's Child.

A fourth chart topper confirmed Eminem as the most successful rapper in UK chart history. The song, "Lose Yourself" is considered to be one of his best and is taken from the soundtrack to his own film, 8 Mile, which also proved very popular. The song also topped the charts in the US. Boyband Blue returned to the top of the UK charts for the 3rd time collaborating with Elton John to revived an old hit of his, "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word".
