  Single (music)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Most CD singles have only one main track and are usually named after this song, but some may have a double A-side, where two tracks are given equal billing in the title of the single.
Although non-album singles are sometimes released, the lead tracks (and sometimes B-sides) of singles usually come from an album (either one already released or one about to be) and the release of the single is partly to promote sales of the album, and to ensure radio playlisting.
Singles have been issued on various formats, including 7-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch vinyl discs (usually playing at 45 rpm); 10-inch shellac discs (playing at 78 rpm); cassette, 3 and 5-inch CD singles and 7-inch plastic flexi discs.

 UK Singles Chart   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Singles that climb the charts and spend a number of weeks at a high position are now rare, and usually denote super singles, which manage to enter the public consciousness and appeal to a wide range of people.
At that time singles usually took several weeks to climb to a high position in the charts, and it was rare and remarkable for a single to go straight in at number 1.
An effect of this competition for high chart positions is that a number of high-profile "battles" have taken place in which singles released on the same day have become the focus of media attention concerning which will sell the most copies in their first week and therefore enter the chart higher.

 Definition of Top 40
Top 40 is a radio format based on frequent repetition of songs from a constantly-updated list of the forty best-selling singles.
The term is also used to refer to the actual list of hit songs, and, by extension, to refer to pop music in general.
Although the concept of the hit parade is older, the invention and naming of the Top 40 format is widely credited to Todd Storz, who was the director of radio station KOWH-AM in Omaha, Nebraska in the early 1950s.

Sure, the BBC are in a tricky position here - they don't make the chart, so don't have a direct input into what happens on the headed notepaper, and, as they fairly point out, they mention sponsorship deals in the case of, say, the Coca-Cola Cup or the Barclaycard Premiership.
On the other hand, the BBC is one of the biggest paymasters of the Chart Company, and it's pretty apparent that the Officialness of the Official chart resides not in the fact it appears in a pull-out in the middle of Music Week, but in its use by the BBC.
If the BBC elected not to use the Chart With Added Sugar, but to go elsewhere for its listing (hell, we'd even make up a list of bestselling singles for you, if you'd like) it's unlikely Coke would be topping up the Chart Company's coffers to the tune of a million quid.
