Cool. Do you have these statistics for Before?

Year: 1996
Charts: NL 4 / FIN 4 / LV 4 / SING 5 / UK 7 / SWE 9 / ITA 16 / SWI 31 / GER 45 / US club 1

All stats in my site.
Was Paninaro 95 really number one in Ireland? How bizarre.
What do you know, Before was actually a bigger hit :wink: :P

It was in Singapore, Finland and Latvia, yes.

But not in the UK, Italy or Germany. IE the major markets.

oh and as it turns out the info isnt entirely correct - Before didnt make the Netherlands top 40 after all

As far as I know, the info is largely incorrect for all the singles, Can You Forgive Her? inclusive. BTW, Italy is not a big market and always has been a tiny market for PSB.

Italy is not a big market for singles, that's true.
But until mid '90 the singles had their little (but good) market.
The info about charts are all taken from official sources
That's why there are not charts from other markets - i.e. France - since I have info but *not* from official sources.

The Italian market has always been about 80% domestic acts though, hasn't it?

'Boys, Boys, Boys' is *such* an underrated record.

As was 'All of me' but especially 'Boys, boys, boys,' if you lose the rap. It's a shame there isn't more pop like that these days, soundwise.

The b'side of 'All Of Me', 'My Chico' was even better. But I totally agree with you, of course. We need more of that both musically and lyrically.

Oh, come on, there's nothing to :cry: about that, Italy has a very long tradition in music and it's good that countries such as Italy, France and Greece support their domestic acts so much.

Yes, but sometimes it's sad to be obliged to hear/see italian low-quality acts, and many international hi-quality acts all completely forgotten.
Italian casual buyers really don't know how many talented international acts exist, mainly because English is not well known. So, only the most advertised artists are able to sell...

Who?
Raffaella Carrà?
(she's 60 now)

I don't know any other Raffaella (apart a lovely girl who was my classmate, and I tried so many times to take her to the cinema, but she told me 'NO' 100 times, and then I knew she went in bed with another male of my class, that was 15+ years ago)
