Forum - General - Best of 2018

In the first half of 2017 there were 94 new entries. This year, only 82. In total we saw 129 songs in the Top 40 compared to 138 last year. The chart is not kind to kiwi artists either and hasn't been now for three years. This year there were only two new local singles with 5 songs in total in the chart. By comparison, last year saw 4 new and 6 in total and in 2016 one new and two in total. To compare that to 2006, a random year I picked, 21 local tracks graced the Top 40 in the first six months, 16 of them new entries. Something needs to change. Final interesting point. The number one last year for the half yearly best of chart was Shape Of You by Ed Sheeran. He does it again this year, this time with Perfect which actually started it's chart life well over a year ago.

Here is the list of the Top 100 songs of the first half of 2018 based on points:
