Just finished with all the songs that were #1 for 4 weeks or more simultaneously with the album they come from also being at #1 on the album chart. Next up is singles and albums that were #1 for three weeks together and of course I started off this new group with U2's With Or With Out You. Other songs will come later when I get the time. Eventually I'll expand the list to all the songs that were #1 at the same time as the album they came from, even if it was only for one week.
