I Am A Glutton For Punishment
« on: October 26, 2016, 01:14:20 PM »
Hi Guys,

Although I was taking the week off, but I started on a new project this week, of trying to get every single UK single since 1952 onwards. Thanks to Berrywell this will be a bit easier and faster now (so he says) but it is still going to take some time to complete.

The plan of action is to do the singles first, then do the albums in the same way, and then music videos. The eventual plan is to have every top 100 single, album and music video in the UK, and then who knows move onto the American and Australian charts.

My plan of attack and file structure for this project is as follows

UK Singles (MAIN DIRECTORY)
 - 1952 - UK Singles Chart (YEAR SUB DIRECTORY)
 - Week 46 - 14-11-52 (WEEK SUB DIRECTORY WITH DATE)
- 01 - Al Martino - Here In My Heart (SINGLE SUB DIRECTORY WITH CHART POSTITION FOR THAT WEEK)
- 01 - Al Martino - Here In My Heart.mp3 (FILE FORMAT WITH CHART POSITION, ARTIST, SONG TITLE)
 - folder.jpg (ARTWORK FOR SAID ARTIST)

Week 47 - 21-11-52

New Entries only, no re entries and no duplicates from the week before.

TAGGING

Track is chart entry and 01 to 09 format
Song title and album title is the same
Artist and album artist is the same
Year is self explanatory
Genre will be 50's Chart Hits, 60's Chart Hits etc. It would take too long at the moment to give every single a genre of it's own, hopefully that might change in the future.

Obviously I cannot put links here as it would be against Copyright however, a simple request via PM and who knows what the reply might be.

I will keep updating this as soon as I have completed and uploaded another year.

UK Chart Number Ones

I am also trying to do this at the same time. I have changed the number system for Al Martino from 01 to 00001 and changed the genre to UK Number One Single. The reason why I have put 5 numbers for as at the moment Little Mix is the 1317 uk number one single so I am future proofing a tiny bit.

YEARS COMPLETED AND UPLOADED

1952 now uploaded.

Regards

Mark

Yeah that would be great if you could. I have a MegaSync page, otherwise I think it would be too big otherwise. I am still trying to logistics of this. I keep changing how I am managing my storage, but I defiantly think that this is going to be the last time that I change it.

I shall PM you now.

Regards

I'm in... I rip my own videos from Australia's ABC rage each week and trying to do the same (although my Australia ARIA charts only go back to 1988)... happy to grab/swap/supply videos if I can be of help.
