Top 100 Singles of 2001 in Canada (Unofficial)

From the Niesen SoundScan charts, we have created a Top 100 singles in Canada for the year 2001. It is important to note that it is unofficial.

As a number of singles continued to sell well for many years, for this 2001 chart, we removed songs released prior to 2000 with the exception of Delerium’s “Silence” (1999) as it grew in popularity from a number of remixes over the period. This chart does not represent radio airplay but strictly the week to week sales of CD singles in Canada. A number of popular songs on the radio were not released as singles, availability was limited, or Canadians opted to buy the full album rather than the single. Thus, take this chart with a grain of salt. It is a snapshot view of the relative popularity of CD single purchases through the calendar year of 2001. We determined the rankings by a points system, taking each weekly Top 40 position, subtracting it from 41, and tallying the results. For example, if a song was in the Top 40 for two weeks in the year, first at #1 and then #31, its points would be 41-1+41-31=50.

From this, we can say that Destiny’s Child had the biggest song of 2001 (in terms of CD singles sales) with “Survivor”. The top Canadian artist song was Delerium’s “Silence” featuring Sarah McLachlan followed closely by Sugar Jones’ “Days Like That”. Eleven of the Top 100 are from Canadians. We have bolded the artists’ names in red. More Charts…
