Some weeks ago when it was clear there would be some celebration of four decades of official music charts in New Zealand, one of those researching it asked me a question which stumped me.
What New Zealand act had three consecutive number one singles?
And no, it wasn't a Finn or Dave Dobbyn.
The answer when it came made me reconsider just how much I knew about pop hits.
It was Deep Obsession at the tail end of the Nineties.
So that clears that up for the next pub quiz, right?
We could guess that Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon might have spent the most weeks on the charts, but which New Zealand act could claim that stat?
The answer is below on this handy graphic . . . and if you want to be kept abreast of the charts (singles, albums, New Zealand artists) every week then just go to nztop40.co.nz
You may well be surprised by who is doing well . . . and those you might think were but in fact aren't.
