Comments[edit]

I would like to say that you have missed out their first album from the chronology. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.151.133.134 (talkcontribs)

I can find no reference on the 'net for "Brothers in Arms" being the first CD single. - Foetusized (talk) 14:58, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

This single from Phil Collins (http://991.com/buy/productinformation.aspx?StockNumber=63767) is from 1982, preceding Brothers in Arms by at leasts 2 years. So Brothers in Arms certainly wasn't the first CD single. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.58.163.112 (talk) 21:49, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

It may have released on vinyl in 1982, but 3-inch CD singles were not introduced until 1988, so this wasn't released on 3" CD in 1982. -- Foetusized (talk) 23:10, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

'Song Charts'?[edit]

Is this text true for the UK as well as the USA?

"Due to pressure from record labels, singles charts became song charts, allowing album cuts to chart based only on airplay, without a single ever being released."

I remember the new rules for what could be classed as a "Single" coming in (no more than 3 tracks etc.) but as far as I remember it continued to be the "Singles" chart until a couple of years ago when Download sales were added. 86.164.183.227 (talk) 19:26, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Who calls it a Compact Disc single? This is a much simpler title and just about every song infobox on Wikipedia has it linked like this anyway. Relisted. Jenks24 (talk) 12:08, 3 July 2012 (UTC) Unreal7 (talk) 13:08, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
