Top 100 Singles of 2002 in Canada (Unofficial)

From the Niesen SoundScan charts, we have created a Top 100 singles in Canada for the year 2002. It is important to note that it is unofficial.

This chart does not represent radio airplay but strictly the week to week sales of CD singles in Canada. As a number of them continued to sell well for many years, we have excluded singles released prior to 2001 for the chart below. Note that 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 2002. 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 Faith Hill had the biggest song of 2002 (again in terms of CD singles sales) with “There You’ll Be” which was featured in the soundtrack for Hollywood blockbuster film Pearl Harbour starring Kate Beckinsale and Ben Affleck. The top Canadian artist song was “Hero” by Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. It was featured in motion picture Spider-Man. Sixteen of the Top 100 are from Canadians. We have bolded the artists’ names in red. More charts…
