The Dutch Top 40 (Dutch: Nederlandse Top 40) is a weekly music chart, which started as the "Veronica Top 40", because the pirate radio channel Radio Veronica was the first to introduce it.

Compilation

Stip

Every song that moves up 3 or more places than it was before, gets a stip ('dot'). When a song is noted in the top 10 and moves up 5 or more places, it gets a superstip ('super dot'). Also when a song enters the chart higher than the #25 positions or moves up more than 10 places in the chart, it gets a superstip.


Examples:

  • A song enters the chart at #30 up and till at #26: stip.
  • A song enters the chart at #25 of higher: superstip.
  • A song moves from #25 to #9: superstip.
  • A song moves from #15 to #10: superstip
  • A song moves from #35 to #25: superstip.
  • A song moves from #40 to #25: superstip.
  • A song moves from #15 to #11: stip.
  • A song moves from #25 to #17: stip.
  • A song moves from #40 to #26: stip.
  • A song moves from #40 to #30: stip.
  • Any move between #40 and #31: nothing happens.
  • A song enters the chart at #34: nothing happens. Entering below 30: nothing happens.
  • A song moves from #15 to #14: nothing happens. Outside the top 10, a song must at least move three places to get stip and 10 to get superstip. This is only the case when a song moves to #25 or higher -or when it's already above #25- and it then moves 10 places.
  • A song moves from #11 to #10: stip. Any move to and within the top 10 makes at least stip.

Composition

Like the Mega Top 50, the chart is a combination of single sales and airplay. The more often a song gets played on the radio, the higher its place in the Top 40. As of 2003, digital downloads are also counted. A collection of various CD singles In music, a single is a short recording of one or more separate tracks. ... Airplay is a technical term used in the radio industry to state how frequently a song is being played on a radio station. ... Year 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... // A digital download (also known as a digital single or a paid digital download) is an official and legal music single available for purchase through an online store. ...


For year end chart positions: #1 position gets 40 points, #2 position gets 39 points .... #40 position get one point. This way you just count up all numbers and sort them from most points till least points.


Rules

There is a set of rules, of which some exist since 1972, that has to be maintained:

  • Singles must remain minimal two weeks in the chart. If a single officially no longer belongs in the top 40, these are placed on #40.
  • Example: Missy Elliott's "Lose Control": Remained two weeks on #40 in the chart, because it did not sell enough and also wasn't played enough on the radio.
  • Singles noted with the superstip, may not fall down in chart position the following week. If a single in fact was to drop, it remains on the position it ended, so the following week it drops hard in chart positions.
  • Recent example: Guus Meeuwis' "Ik Wil Dat Ons Land Juicht": The song entered the chart at #11 (superstip), rose up to #5 (superstip again) in its second week. The following week it was meant to drop in chart position, but remained on the #5 position. The following two weeks, it went from #5 to #39.
  • Re-entry only takes place when the single re-enters within the top 30, if differently, these re-entried singles are ignored.
  • Example: Racoon recently re-entered the Dutch Top 40 at #31 though with the song "Love You More".
  • Singles with double A-side are noted separately in the top 40; due the (possible) different number of airplay the two songs get.
