Next to a songs name it has its ranking as the most covered by year, so should I? By Arthur freed is 36th in 1929 but when click on the link takes to a list of the fourth most covered songs of each year. Is there anywhere to see it whole by year? The data exists for it but is it not compiled in full lists

For what it's worth, I would vote in favor as well. I didn't pay much attention to this thread until I submitted a string of Drive covers after the death of Ric Ocasek. It went from ~28 to 15, but now back down to 16. Got curious as to what had recently passed it....

Now that #3073 has been implemented.:


1. Maybe the "ranking" should link to Most covered songs, don't you think? That way people directly get the full list.

Example:

attachment

"1st in 2019" could link to https://secondhandsongs.com/statistics/stats_work_covered?year=2019 instead of https://secondhandsongs.com/statistics/stats_most_covered_work_per_original_year


2. And while we're at it, let's delete Most covered songs per original year ?

It became redundant, so getting rid of it would help to clean the Song Statistics menu a little.


To avoid any confusion, I'll wait for these fixes before announcing the upgrade.

  1. Done
  2. I think the overview per year still has some value over the new detailed list

I agree about the over view per year. I envisioned clicking on Drive [RED BOX], which would take me to the overview, then I could click on the year for the specific list.


BTW, Drive currently shows #12 but it's #11 on the list. Some refresh delay?

Great! but one small remark:


The list show songs only that are marked with a first original release.

I have a feeling that songs with a first broadcast are excluded from the list.


See: Manhã de Carnaval

it's not in the 1959 list as one would expect...

Thanks, did not expect my example could even throw My Favorite Things from the top spot. Smile
