Can anyone elaborate because there's another SG fan site who is running the 2 Become 1 Christmas campaign on Facebook.

Many thanks.


For the UK, you can only stream a song 10 times a day that counts towards the UK charts, any extra after that wont count. So you can Stream a song 10 times a day for the 7 days of the chart (Fri-Thurs) which equates to 70 plays which is 0.7 of a sale.

For streams to count it must go beyond 30 seconds into the song and the sound on your spotify or whatever cant be on mute.

Though any streams over the 10 a day still count towards its overall plays on Spotify and their daily charts.


Thank you very much. So if you stream a song for 30 seconds, you can skip back to the beginning mid song and start again and 10 plays is 0.1 of sales. Great.


I would just stream the entire song just to be sure.

I'm also pretty sure it can't detect if your computer speaker is on mute, but obviously, it'll notice if you have your Spotify app on mute.

Like tommie says, its best/most realistic chance of gaining significant sales via streaming is if it gets added to a prominent playlist and it picks up streams naturally via tens of thousands of people casually listening.

For it to even enter the lower quarter of the UK Top 200 it'd require around 5000 people in the UK to play the song 10 times a day for a week, which would generate 3,500 sales.

This comment is an aside, for the sake of interest: streams occurring on Thursday don't count towards the official charts. The data isn't sent to them in time. So, they make up data for Thursday, based on previous days listening trends and what they predict the Thursday streams would have likely been. So therefore the popular "Throwback Thursday" playlist is essentially pointless in terms of the official chart.

The charts are such a rigged bag of shit now. I watched a program about how charts used to be counted using different methods over the year's. and due to lack of technology it was sometimes made up or altered. Now though they have the technology but use it to do what they want and no one even notices

I merged it with the Spice Up Your Life general discussion topic. I'm trying to encourage the use of the single topics for random things like that.

Oh ok, thought I'd gone mad.

Only thing is though if we just keep adding stuff to those topics the titles need updating all the time so people know there is new content and what it is.

When you reply to a topic you can actually change the subject of the post you're making, if you wish to. Then when people quote that post, that title remains!

Thanks for the update. Nice to see it back on the iTunes top 200. Since the Olympics its appeared quite a few times. I know it hasn't sold millions in the UK, but I'm impressed seeing as the record is nearly a decade old.

I wonder how many copies it's sold this year alone.

Well it sold I think about 750/800 copies the week it charted the 20th anniversary week. With it getting a fair few boost and the constant rumours of reunions and such I'd say it will have sold well this year overall.

Since 2012 its been between 415-450k I think someone said once.

If it's managed to reach 600k in just these past few years I would be surprised but it would be great :)

There's no point for chart companies to keep posting sales, since the "Spice Girls" brand keep them trickle selling, with the occassional bump.

Now that UK Certifications are automatic, we'll know landmarks (like Silver, Gold, Platinum etc)

UK itunes - 2 become 1 - #346

It is that time of year again, when this gets airplay and video play. It is 59p still so it will be interesting to see how high it goes if it stays that price till xmas.
