non-ELO USA Singles

 

The USA Singles Not by Electric Light Orchestra


Comments and Observations

Although Jeff Lynne is probably best known as the leader of Electric Light Orchestra, he has had a much more varied career. He was a member and sometimes leader of three other bands as well as a solo artist. He also has a long history of songwriting and production with and for other artists. In this non-ELO regard, Jeff has been involved in some facet in about 50 different single releases in the US, some of which have gone on to become classics of American pop music, including Tom Petty's Free Fallin' and I Won't Back Down, Roy Orbison's You Got It, Traveling Wilburys' Handle With Care. This large collection of singles has generated 10 Top 40 Billboard singles and Jeff's only #1 in the US Billboard Hot 100 charts with George Harrison's Got My Mind Set On You.

Jeff's first ever USA single release in 1967 was also his first professional release ever. This was Here We Go Round The Lemon Tree by his band, Idle Race. The single was not a success and despite several more Idle Race single releases in the UK, he had no more Idle Race singles issued in the US. It wasn't until joining The Move in 1970 that several more USA issued singles were released. During the ELO years, most of his time was taken up with his band and very little non-ELO material was produced. In 1975, his collaboration with Del Shannon on Cry Baby Cry was released, in 1977 his Doin' That Crazy Thing solo single was released and in the waning years of ELO during the 1980s, he also had releases of his collaborations with Dave Edmunds as well as a solo single. After ELO disbanded in 1986, Jeff's post-ELO work expanded and he went on to involvement with a wide assortment of USA issued singles. Although he had a lot of chart and popular success with many singles during this period, his proudest achievement is the production of the two new singles by The Beatles, Free As A Bird and Real Love. Following this success, he moved into a period of semi-retirement, only producing music occasionally and very few singles followed.

Various Labels: As Jeff's role in these singles was often either in production, songwriting or sometimes even just supplying a bit of backing vocal or guitar, they were typically released under the names of other artists and under record contracts that had no direct involvement with Jeff. As such, the labels and rules regarding their releases can vary radically. For example, during the busy year of 1989, Jeff's music was being released on four different labels at once, including Warner Brothers (by George Harrison), Virgin America (by Roy Orbison), MCA (by Tom Petty) and Wilbury Records (actually Warner Brothers by Traveling Wilburys). The different business models and marketing plans for each of these artists and their labels led to a wide variation in single releases. Even Jeff Lynne's own releases could be unpredictable, with the one-off 1977 Doin' That Crazy Thing single being on his ELO label of Jet Records (distributed by United Artists), his one-off 1983 Video! single on the Virgin label, and his 1990 singles from his Armchair Theatre album out on Reprise Records.

Got My Mind Set On You cassette singleVariable Formats: By the post-ELO era, the reign of the 7" single was waning, giving way to formats such as cassettes, CDs and eventually downloads. During this transition period, different record companies experimented with trying to find a format that would prove successful. Similar to the issue of the various labels for Jeff's non-ELO singles, there also exist a wide variation on formats for these singles. Each label had their own plans and it led to a very wide variation on what was produced in both the stock releases and the promo releases. Certainly during the main part of Jeff's career, the 7" vinyl single was most common with most singles having a release in both stock and (often white label) promo issues. With the fading of vinyl as a format by the early 1990s, the last ever 7" vinyl single with Jeff Lynne is The Beatles' Real Love in 1996. It could be said that this was only released on vinyl as a collector's item, so the last genuine 7" vinyl single release is Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers 1991 Into The Great Wide Open single.

Other than dance clubs, 12" vinyl singles as a commercial format never really caught on, therefore only two stock issues of 12" singles featuring Jeff Lynne were produced; these 12" singles are his 1977 Doin' That Crazy Thing single (with a hilarious attempt at creating a new dance craze on the cover) and the 1987 Spies single by Duane Eddy which only has the Jeff produced Rockabilly Holiday as the B-side. All other 12" releases are promo only issues with the first promo appearing in 1983 on Dave Edmunds' Slipping Away and the last produced promo 12" being Roy Orbison's 1989 song, You Got It. Curiously, Warner Brothers released a George Harrison 12" promo single only for his song Devil's Radio in late 1987, a song that was never a commercial stock single.

As vinyl as a format faded, both cassette tape and digital CDs came to prominence. Not every format got released as the industry was still trying to figure out the best direction to go. Cassette tapes were popular and extremely portable in the late 1980s and early 1990s; while CD playback was still unreliable on portable devices during this period as they tended to skip if the player was shaken. The idea of the cassette single (sometimes called a cassingle) was created to fill the single market. The first non-ELO Jeff-involved cassette single was 1987's Got My Mind Set On You by George Harrison and most (but not all) releases featured a cassette single release (and a few only a cassette single stock release) up to 1996's Real Love by The Beatles. Cassette singles never really proved to be very popular as a format and most of them had very limited copies manufactured. Therefore, many can be very rare and difficult to find today.

Every Little Thing promo CD singleMany different CD singles were also produced during vinyl's waning years and it eventually sort of won out in the format war for singles until the advent of the download single. Curiously most of the CD singles produced were actually promo 5" singles made for radio. The first Jeff promo CD single was 1987's Got My Mind Set On You and the latest is from 2012 with Joe Walsh's One Day At A Time. Not all, but most singles during this period had a promo CD single produced and some songs, as the idea of producing a stock copy single itself began to fade, were released on promo CD single only. Examples of this include the Traveling Wilbury's Last Night (1988) and Inside Out (1990), Jeff Lynne's Lift Me Up (1990), Roy Orbison's Heartbreak Radio (1993) and George Harrison's Stuck Inside A Cloud (2003). There were several stock copy CD singles produced, often with extra tracks (an equivalent to a B-side), although there was a bit of a format war in the size of the CD singles. The Traveling Wilburys' Handle With Care (1988) and End Of The Line (1989) were both release on 3" CD single, each featuring an experiment in packaging as the format was so new. A promo CD of George Harrison's This Is Love was produced in both 5" and 3" format. No other stock copy CD singles were produced until 1992 with Ringo Starr's Weight Of The World (featuring Jeff on the extra tracks only), although by then the size had easily settled to the typical 5" CD and all promo CD singles on 5" in this size as well. Only a handful of remaining commercial CD singles were produced with the last being Paul McCartney's The World Tonight in 1997.

Finally, with the advent of devices that can directly play music files (typically mp3 formats), the concept of a physical single itself is fading. The first official download "single" of a Jeff Lynne produced song is Tom Petty's 2006 Saving Grace. What exactly constitutes a single in this format remains a bit vague. Often a download single will be release with unique artwork (such as Saving Grace) and it may be bundled with extra bonus tracks (an equivalent to a B-side). But this is not always the case. Jeff Lynne's 2012 Mercy, Mercy song was a single in name, only because the record company declared it as such and a music video was produced. There was no special artwork produced and there is no download single to purchase other than to buy the loan track from of the Long Wave download album. So can it really be declared a single? It is marketed as such so it must be, but it remains debatable. (Note: a promo CD single of Mercy, Mercy was produced in the UK using artwork that featured screen captures from the music video, but this was not available in the US market.)

A-sides and B-sides: Most of these non-ELO Jeff involved singles are the A-side, aka the primary song being promoted for a single. With the single-sided CD singles and no-sided download singles, the concept of the A-side really doesn't apply, but it is sometimes still used to indicate the song being pushed. The B-side, although typically used to describe what's on the flipside of a two-sided single, can also refer to the extra songs available on a single and are not the primary song(s) being pushed. As stated, most of these Jeff singles feature Jeff on the A-side (and often the B-side as well), but there are a few releases that only feature the Jeff related song on the B-side only. These include the Duane Eddy single from 1987 of Spies featuring Jeff on the Rockabilly Holiday B-side and the 1992 Ringo Starr Weight Of The World single with After All These Years and Don't Be Cruel on the B-side, with Don't Be Cruel being an exclusive to the CD single only.

Curiously, in the case of The Move's 1972 California Man single, the American DJs flipped the single and made the B-side, Do Ya the hit instead, although it was only a minor hit, peaking at #93 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Promo Only Titles: Several songs were released as promo only titles in the US starting in the mid 1980s. This was done in part because of the fracturing nature of US radio and the way that albums and singles were promoted. Titles with a stock copy single release were aimed at the Top 40 radio and general audiences. Album cuts released on promo only titles were aimed at Album Oriented Rock (AOR) radio stations. As the name for such radio stations suggests, the songs played on these stations were aimed at selling albums, not so much singles, and they would often play choice album cuts. Thus, songs such as George Harrison's Devil's Radio, Traveling Wilburys' Last Night and Jeff Lynne's Lift Me Up only had promo releases and no stock copy release.

Rereleases vs. Reissues: There is a distinction to be made regarding a rerelease of a single versus a reissue of a song. A rerelease refers to a single that is released with a subsequent pressing of the original single. It may or may not have the same stock number (and label); although for this page, only those with new stock numbers or labels are considered because silent rereleases (repressed singles that have no easily discerned different features) are very difficult to identify. Variations are noted where known. Reissues, on the other hand, are singles issued not to promote a new single, but rather to sell an older hit in the "oldies" market. Reissues are addressed in a special section below.

Examples of rereleased singles include:

Charts: Details on these singles' Billboard chart performances are noted below.

Miscellaneous: A US single by The Move on the Warner Brothers label of When Alice Comes Back To The Farm with What? on the B-side was scheduled for release on October 1970, but it was cancelled before it was ever pressed and no copies exist. It's unknown why it was cancelled, but it is very likely that it was a result of the myriad of labels that the band had signed to in the US due to manager Don Arden trying to work a deal. The songs were eventually released in the US on the Looking On album on the Capitol label.

Running Time: 2:15

This song is an original recording for the single.

Jeff's Role(s)
  • vocals (A-side)
  • guitar (All sides)

This is Jeff's first professional release ever. The single was issued in the US only. There were original plans to release it in the UK, but before it was pressed there, the song Here We Go Round The Lemon Tree was released as the B-side of The Move's Flowers In The Rain single. As The Move were a popular and established band at the time, Liberty Records cancelled the Idle Race release in the UK, choosing to release it in the US only.

Note how the promo record is listed as an "audition record", a term not commonly in use today. Because of this, many fans and dealers do not realize that this is a promo record and assume it is a stock record.

The songs on this single are mono only.

Lightning Never Strikes Twice

Running Time: 2:58

This song is an original recording for the single. It has no Jeff Lynne involvement as it was recorded before Jeff joined the band.


Brontosaurus (Edited Mono Version)
(Roy Wood)

Running Time: 3:16

The difference between this version and the original single version is that it simply fades shortly following the final chorus. This version is known only on the mono side of the USA pressed A&M promotional single with stock number 1197. It has never been released anywhere else.

Jeff's Role(s)
  • guitar (A-side)
  • co-production (A-side)

The song Brontosaurus is Jeff's first recording ever with The Move, recorded just shortly after joining the band. The B-side, Lightning Never Strikes Twice, was recorded before Jeff joined.

There were two promo singles produced. One with the catalog number 1197 on both sides and containing a stereo and mono mixe on each side of the full 4:26 version of the song. The other single has catalog 1197-S on the stereo side and 1197 on the mono side. The 1197-S promo single contains a misprint. Both sides claim it is an edited version of the song, running 3:10, with one side stereo and the other mono. In reality, the stereo side is the full 4:26 version of the song, not the edited version. The edited version only exists in mono.

This song the same as the Message From The Country album.

Jeff's Role(s)
  • guitar (all sides)
  • backing vocals (B-side)
  • co-production (all sides)

The B-side, Don't Mess Me Up, is credited to Bev Bevan as songwriter. In reality, this may actually be a Roy Wood composition, written for Bev. In some of the early days, Roy would generously give the B-side songwriter credit to his bandmates so that they got some of the songwriter royalties for the sales of the single.

Jeff's Role(s)
  • guitar (all sides)
  • co-lead vocals (all sides)
  • co-production (all sides)
  • songwriting (B-side)

The B-side, Do Ya, became the hit (although only a minor one) when American DJs flipped the single and began playing it instead of California Man. As a result, an additional promo single was released of Do Ya, with stereo versions of the song on both side and no California Man at all.

Do Ya would be re-recorded by Electric Light Orchestra in 1976 and it became a hit again for Jeff under that band.

  • co-production (all sides)
  • co-songwriting (B-side)

Tonight was rereleased by United Artists nearly a year and a half after the original release in 1971 on Capitol. It's not entirely clear why this was done, but it was likely done to follow-up on the success of The Move's Do Ya just three month's prior.

The promo single had two different versions: a white label promo and a yellow label promo. There is no difference between the singles other than the color of the label.

Because of this, there has been a great deal of confusion about this as a USA single.

Also, at the very end of the fade out, the "I'm laughing wild" vocal line is different.

This song was rereleased as a promo single only when the King Of Hearts album was released. It's not clear why this was done when the first released in 1992 with heavy promotion failed to succeed. However, the song was having a resurgence of success in the European market, so it may be that Virgin was willing to put another slight push behind the song with hopes that it would have similar success in America.

Reissues

A Box Of Their BestReissues are all-new singles of older hit songs, designed for the "oldies" (hits from a previous time) market. There are actually relatively few reissues of the non-ELO Jeff Lynne related songs. This is in part because by the time these songs qualified for the oldies market and existing original-issue stock singles had sold out, the market for single sales was fading. With the advent of the digital download era, the need for reissue singles no longer existed.

Some of Jeff's biggest hits got the reissue treatment, including the George Harrison #1 song Got My Mind Set On You and the popular Traveling Wilburys songs Handle With Care and When We Was Fab. These reissues came out on 7" single, but also the experimental cassette single.

The Jeff Lynne song Doin' That Crazy Thing is a special case for a reissue single. It might be better described as a premium single as it was only available as a one-sided bonus single in the 1980 A Box Of Their Best box set (which included four Electric Light Orchestra albums). This was done as a way to help sell the box set to fans who already owned the albums in the set as well as entice fans with a new item. It could be considered "new" here because the original 1977 single issue was not a hit and faded quickly from the market.

With the 2007 remaster of the Traveling Wilburys albums, a special download single of Handle With Care, a bundle of the original single/album version and the never-released-in-the-US extended version was issued to help promote the album sales.

Jeff's Role(s): Everything

A Box Of Their Best back showing Doin' That Crazy Thing inclusionA Box Of Their Best back hiding Doin' That Crazy Thing inclusionThis single was only for sale as a premium in some issues of the A Box Of Their Best box set. There were two different versions of the box set released, one with markings on the back of the box that indicated that the single was included and others were this portion was blacked out and the single was not included. Regardless of the markings on the back of the boxes about the single's inclusion, not all box sets actually included the single. For those that did include it, the single was often simply shrinkwrapped inside the box set's shrinkwrapping. The single is marked as a promo item only, which is curious because it was for sale as a premium with the set. It is probably the case that this was done so that retailers could not separate the single from the set and sell it alone, separate from the box set. Despite this, it is likely that the bonus single was removed anyway by unscrupulous retailers or buyers (who returned the box without the single). This may explain why many of these sets did not include the single, regardless of the box markings. It may be the case that the version of the box set where the information on the single is blocked out is because of the problems with the single missing from the box (although it should be noted that there are additional subtle difference between the two versions of the box sets).

In addition to the white label promo single (given out like a regular promo item), there were actually two different non-white label promos (sold as premiums in the box set). One has a single groove on the B-side playing about two minutes of silence only; the other has a completely smooth B-side, having no groove and playing nothing. It's unclear which single, if not both, were actually distributed with the box set.

The A-side plays at an album's 33 1/3 RPM speed, not the typical 45 RPMs of a single.

Sales Figures

No sales information is available at this time.

Music Charts

The primary measure of the success of a single is by the music chart rating. In turn, these ratings are based upon a combination of sales and radio airplay. The exact formula used to calculate these ratings (using sales and airplay) will vary from year to year and from chart company to chart company, so true success can be considered somewhat subjective at times.

In the US, the music industry trade magazine Billboard has dominated with the most popular and widely used chart statistics. In fact, by the time of Jeff Lynne's chart presence outside of Electric Light Orchestra, the Record World trade magazine had ceased publication, while Cash Box had declined in popularity and would cease publication in 2006.

The primary chart from Billboard is the Hot 100, which measures the overall popularity of singles, regardless of genre.

As stated, Billboard is a trade magazine, meaning it is targeted to the music industry, not the general populace. Because of this, the various fractured tracks are aimed toward retailers (sales charts), broadcasters (airplay and statistical impressions), and record companies. Also, it can be a bit confusing with some of the nomenclature that Billboard uses to differentiate their charts. In Billboard nomenclature, a "song" is a single (all versions of a song by an artist being promoted) and a "track" is a specific track, beit a version of a single or a non-single taken from an album. Also, "statistical impressions" refers to not only airplay (radio and other media), but also plays from on-demand sources such as YouTube and Spotify.

Below is a chart that shows the Billboard Hot 100 chart position of each song versus its week on the chart. It's obvious from the chart that George Harrison's Got My Mind Set On You was Jeff Lynne's fastest growing and highest charting non-ELO song. This is the only song to hit the #1 spot and it also was on the charts the most amount of time making it the clear leader. Other popular hits, in order of most popular, are Tom Petty's Free Fallin', Roy Orbison's You Got It and Tom Petty's I Won't Back Down.

It's perhaps surprising that as big of a hit as Got My Mind Set On You was, it's no longer a part of the American consciousness, while both Free Fallin' and I Won't Back Down remain so. This may be, in part, because Tom Petty has continued to promote the songs through live performances, most notably the 2001 America: A Tribute to Heroes telethon concert and the 2008 Super Bowl halftime show. In addition, Free Fallin' was a massive hit on album rock radio, while Got My Mind Set On You did not do nearly as well. Even the Roy Orbison You Got It hit has more long term resonance than Got My Mind Set On You.

The Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks charts started in 1981 to measure radio airplay on Album Oriented Rock (AOR) radio. These stations did not necessarily play typical Top 40 songs as the name suggests, they would also play choice deep cuts from albums. As such, sometimes songs would chart that were not necessarily singles. In an interesting give-and-take, sometimes record companies would produce promo singles for the AOR stations to help push a song that wasn't a single (e.g. George Harrison's Devil's Radio) or a song that had unexpectedly become popular on AOR stations was then the next single (e.g. Tom Petty's Free Fallin'). The chart is based on radio airplay only.

Several songs that has no single in any form (promo or otherwise) charted on the Hot Album Rock Tracks chart. These include several songs from Tom Petty's Full Moon Fever album (which already had five singles pulled from it); Heading For The Light from the Traveling Wilburys which was a European single but had no single presence in the US; Tom Petty's Feel A Whole Lot Better; and several others. As a result, some unexpected songs often charted.

The chart actually changed names over time. It started out as the "Top Tracks" chart and was always paired with the "Rock Albums" chart, with the obvious implication that it was the top rock tracks. In 1984, it was changed to "Top Rock Tracks" and was no longer paired with the album chart. In 1986, it was again changed to the "Album Rock Tracks" (dropping the "hot" part). Finally, in 1996, it was again changed to the "Mainstream Rock Tracks" chart.

A note about the chart runs shown below. These are lifted from the current Billboard website which currently only lists the Top 30 songs. The actual chart was larger, being the Top 50. For each entry on the Billboard website, they give the total weeks on the chart and the previous week. As such, sometimes the position of a song prior to entering the Top 30 is given. With the total weeks on the chart available, it is assumed (probably often incorrectly) that the first known actual position is the full chart entry date, so any unknown positions are attached to the end of the run to fill out the total weeks on the chart. Any assistance in filling in the gaps is appreciated. Google features many of the Billboard magazines online; unfortunately they are missing most of the issues between 1986 and 1992, when Jeff's non-ELO career was most prolific.

By the 1980s, Billboard was publishing a wide variety of charts for many different genres and industries in the music business. As stated, most prominent was their Hot 100 chart, which reflected the overall popularity for all current music regardless of genre. In addition, several sub-category charts were published, usually for a specialty marketplace. These other charts include:

  • Hot Album/Mainstream Rock - Primarily rock tracks for AOR stations; compiled based on airplay only.
  • Adult Contemporary - Light ballad-oriented pop music; compiled based on airplay only.
  • Hot Country Songs - Country & Western music.
  • Hot Modern Rock Tracks - Modern/Alternative rock tracks; compiled based on airplay only.
  • Hot 100 Airplay - Top radio airplay songs based upon a national sample of select radio stations.
  • Hot 100 Singles Sales - Top selling singles based upon a national sample of select retail stores.
  • Hot Adult Top 40 - Non-adolescent oriented pop music; mainly rock and not to be confused with adult contemporary; compiled based on statistical impressions only.
  • Hot Mainstream Top 40 - Top pop songs based upon statistical impressions.
  • Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales - Top selling singles for the dance music market.
  • Hot Single Recurrents - Older pop singles that are popular again.
  • Hot Digital Singles - Top selling digital download singles.
  • Hot Digital Tracks - Top selling digital download songs.
  • Hot Digital Songs - Popular music digital downloads; compiled based on sales only.

When examining these specialized charts, several Jeff-related singles have hit #1. These include:

  • It's Money That Matters by Randy Newman on the Hot Album/Mainstream Rock chart
  • I Won't Back Down by Tom Petty on the Hot Album/Mainstream Rock chart
  • Runnin' Down A Dream by Tom Petty on the Hot Album/Mainstream Rock chart
  • Free Fallin' by Tom Petty on the Hot Album/Mainstream Rock and Hot Singles Recurrents charts
  • Learning To Fly by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers on the Hot Album/Mainstream Rock chart
  • Out In The Cold by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers on the Hot Album/Mainstream Rock chart
  • Got My Mind Set On You by George Harrison on the Hot Adult Contemporary chart
  • You Got It by Roy Orbison on the Hot Adult Contemporary chart

Below is a listing of each chart time and the known runs for all songs on each chart. All these charts only show songs that charted.

The Hot Adult Contemporary chart was the Top 50 singles for most of its existence, but some time in the early 1990s, it dropped to the Top 40 singles.

The two Jeff produced Roy Orbison singles from the Mystery Girl album are the only forays for Jeff Lynne into the Billboard country music charts. Although these songs are clearly not country songs, this does make some sense as many of the early rock 'n' rollers such as Elvis Presley and Carl Perkins has been making appearances in the country charts from time to time. With Roy's passing, he was getting a lot of attention and radio airplay from country fans who enjoyed these early rock stars.

The Modern Rock Tracks chart is a sister chart to the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. While the former focused purely on rock 'n' roll music, the Modern Rock Tracks chart was geared more toward alternative rock music (such as electronic, punk, indie, emo, etc.). It started in 1988, and in 2009 changed to the "Alternative Songs" chart.

As seen below, Jeff only had a brief showing in these charts with I Won't Back Down. It's perhaps understandable that this could happen as I Won't Back Down has a thumping bass and slow burn feel that can easily fit into the so-called modern rock genre.

The Hot 100 Airplay chart incorporates only songs that are based upon radio airplay only. It's perhaps surprising that Jeff's music hasn't has as big of a showing in this chart. This discrepancy is likely a result of incomplete information obtained from the Billboard website as their database was incomplete when last reviewed. Until more issues of Billboard become available, this remains uncertain. At the time the songs shown charted, the scale was only the top 75 songs. The chart was eventually changed to the Top 100. It has now been discontinued, instead by replaced by the Mainstream Top 40 Tracks chart.

The Adult Top 40 chart is geared toward the desireable 25 to 34 year old demographic, which some radio stations play to. The music is general pop music, but avoids adolescent pop, hard rock and adult contemporary. The chart started in 1995, which is why Jeff has had little showing in the chart. The positions are calculated based upon statistical impressions, which is a measure of sales, airplay, streaming, etc.

The Mainstream Top 40 chart is similar to the Adult Top 40, but instead uses airplay only and features general pop music. The chart started in the early 1990s, which is why Jeff has had little showing in the chart.

This is a curious entry for Jeff Lynne related music as he is usually not associated with dance music. However, an understanding of the chart makes its entry clear. Billboard featured a "Hot Dance Music" section in their publication which grouped several related topics, including club play and the sales of maxi-singles. Maxi-singles were typically used for dance clubs, notably where 12" singles were played. However, by the 1990s vinyl as a format was fading and compact discs were taking over so most clubs played CDs instead. The two CD singles by The Beatles featured four tracks instead of the usual two only as found in a 7" vinyl single. By the definition of the day, a CD single containing more than two tracks was a maxi-single. Thus, the sales of these singles counted toward the maxi-singles sales chart (as well as the Hot 100 and other charts that used sales as a metric). It's not likely that these CD singles were getting much play in dance clubs, but they sold enough to make the Maxi-Singles Sales chart.

By the mid-2000s, Billboard created the recurrents chart to measure older, non-rereleased singles that have a surge in popularity. Singles of this type used to be part of the Hot 100, but the publication changed their policy to keep the Hot 100 current. Thus,

The charted songs include the Traveling Wilburys songs, Handle With Care and End Of The Line due to the promotion from the Rhino Records rereleases of the albums. And the Tom Petty songs, Free Fallin' and I Won't Back Down, charted because they were played by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers during the Super Bowl XLII halftime show. Note: At the Super Bowl that year, the band also performed Runnin' Down A Dream, but the song did not have the same resurgent success as the others.

The actual scale of this chart at the time the songs charted is uncertain.

Started in the mid-2000s, the Hot Digital Singles chart simply measures the sales of digital singles. Recall that a "single" by this definition is a specific single that has been issued, so this implies that End Of The Line was issued as a digital single. Its status as a reissue single remains unclear.

Started in the mid-2000s, the Hot Digital Songs chart simply measures the sales of digital songs, and recall that a song is a specific song (not a track) and all its variations (radio edits, dance mixes, alternate versions, etc). Again, these songs had a resurgence in 2008 thanks to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers playing them during the Super Bowl XLII halftime show.

Another music industry magazine is the Cash Box magazine. The publication originally was oriented toward jukebox vendors (thus the name), but over time they did change their chart statistics to incorporate other criteria such as airplay and sales. The magazine was on par with Billboard as far as popularity into the 1970s, but by the 1980s, Billboard soon became the leader. The magazine struggled for a while and finally ceased publication in 1996.

Cash Box published their Cash Box Top 100 chart (starting in 1958), similar to the Billboard Hot 100. It is interesting that most songs charted quite similarly compared between the two charts. Got My Mind Set On You is the only #1 song on this chart and Free Fallin' did about the same (#6 for Cash Box and #7 for Billboard). Differently You Got It did not chart as well (#16 for Cash Box and #9 for Billboard).

There is some strangeness around the chart information for A Face In The Crowd. It appears the Cash Box may have made an error in their chart. They show the first song entering the chart on February 24, 1990 at #76, the following week (March 3) at the same position, then they mysteriously show it the following week (March 10) as first entering the chart at #76 again. The remaining weeks it charts normally but the "number of weeks on the chart" ignore those first two weeks. The reason for this is unknown.
