Top 100 Singles of 1992 in Canada

Patty_Smyth_-_Sometimes_Love_Just_Ain't_EnoughAccording to RPM Magazine, the biggest song of 1992 in Canada was “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough” by Patty Smyth with Don Henley. It was composed by Glen Burtnik of Styx. A total of 23 songs from the year-end top 100 chart below involve Canadian artists who have been bolded in red. The top song from a Canadian was Alannah Myles’ “Song Instead of a Kiss” at 3rd of the year, her biggest hit. The Canadian charts are an accurate reflection of Canadian tastes in music, and the Top 100 songs were determined both from radio airplay and nationwide sales data. The drawback with year-end charts is that songs charting from the end of one year through beginning of the next will have their chart performance split between the two years. More year-end and other Canadian charts can be found here. The Canadian Music Blog gratefully thanks pop music specialist blogger Bill Smith for scanning and emailing us this chart from his personal copy of RPM magazine. It is currently unavailable online at Archives Canada.
