Updated June 30, 2001

The info below covers singles and albums from the Boys For Pele era and earlier. Here are some links to more recent chart positions for Tori:

  • How "to venus and back" And Its Singles Did On The Charts

  • How "from the choirgirl hotel" And Its Singles Did On The Charts

    For those of you who pay attention or care about Tori's chart positions in the United States, John Taupin posted the following chart summary to the newsgroup. I have added to it slightly to reflect the rerelease of the Silent All These Years single.

    After posting last week that Blue Skies had gone to #1 on Billboard Dance
    Charts, several people had asked about previous song/album positions on
    the charts, so I went through 5 years worth of Billboard and compiled a
    little list of the song/albums that have appeared on various Billboard
    charts and their peak positions. She's been on 6 charts total - 5 are
    included here - I'll explain the 6th at the end.

    Billboard Top 200 Album Chart-
    *Little Earthquakes peaked at # 54
    *Under the Pink peaked (and debuted) at # 12
    *Boys for Pele peaked (and debuted) at # 2
    *Hey Jupiter EP peaked (and debuted) at # 94

    Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart-
    *God peaked at # 72
    *Caught a Lite Sneeze peaked at # 60
    *Silent All These Years (the rerelease in 1997) peaked at #65

    Billboard Dance/Club Play Chart-
    *Professional Widow peaked at # 1 (2 weeks)
    *In the Springtime of His Voodoo peaked at # 6
    *Blue Skies peaked at # 1 (1 week)

    Billboard Dance/Maxi Singles Sales Chart-
    *Pro. Widow peaked at # 14
    *CALS peaked at # 9
    *Talula peaked at # 41

    Billboard Modern Rock Track Chart-
    *Silent All These Years peaked at # 27
    *Crucify peaked at # 22
    *God Peaked at # 1 (2 weeks - her first #1)
    *Cornflake Girl peaked at # 12
    *CALS peaked at # 13

    Well, that's it - the other chart is the Bubbling Under (the Hot 100
    Singles) Chart
    , which essentially is a continuation of the Hot 100 -
    positions 101-125. Talula, Pro. Widow and Voodoo have all appeared on
    there, never reaching #100 and making it to the "big" chart.
    If anyone wants to know anything more, let me know. I'll be happy to help
    you out, if I can. One that may come up, is the difference between a
    full-length album, EP and maxi-single. It has to do with the number of
    different songs on it. Can't remember the exact numbers though -
    something like less than 4 or 5 and it's a single, between 5 and 6 or 7,
    an EP, and more than that an album???????
