Mariah Carey (pictured in 1998) had four singles which reached the top ten in 1994. Her biggest hit of the year was "Without You", which spent 4 weeks at number-one.

The UK Singles Chart is one of many music charts compiled by the Official Charts Company that calculates the best-selling singles of the week in the United Kingdom.[1] Before 2004, the chart was only based on the sales of physical singles with airplay figures and digital downloads excluded from the official chart. This list shows singles that peaked in the Top 10 of the UK Singles Chart during 1994, as well as songs which peaked in 1993 and 1995 but were in the top 10 in 1994. The entry date is when the song appeared in the top 10 for the first time.

131 singles were in the top ten in 1994. American singer Mariah Carey, East 17 and British boy-band Take That all had three top ten entries in 1994. Carey's cover of the Badfinger song "Without You" was her biggest hit of the year; it reached number-one in February and spent four weeks in that position, and eight weeks in the top 10 in total. Her other top ten singles were "All I Want for Christmas Is You" (number 2) in December; "Endless Love" (3) with Luther Vandross in September; and "Anytime You Need a Friend" (8) in June. Three of Take That's four top ten singles reached number-one in the UK: "Babe" in December 1993, "Everything Changes" in April and "Sure" in October. "Love Ain't Here Anymore" was their other top 10 entry, which reached number 3 in July. East 17 also had a number-one single in 1994, "Stay Another Day", which stayed there for 5 of its 8 weeks in the top ten. Their other top ten singles were "Around the World" and "It's Alright (both number 3) and "Steam" (number 7). Bon Jovi, Oasis and Eternal had three singles in the top ten in 1994.

Wet Wet Wet had the biggest-selling single of 1994 with "Love Is All Around", which spent 15 weeks at number-one in the UK, a total of 20 weeks in the top 10, and sold 1.783 million copies. Whigfield's "Saturday Night" finished in second place, and "Stay Another Day" was the third best-selling single. Songs by All-4-One, Let Loose, Mr Blobby and D:Ream were also in the top ten best-selling singles of the year.
