In what Bravo calls America's first real-time dating docuseries, each episode of The Singles Project airs the same week that it's filmed. Young singles in New York who have professional success look for it on the dating scene. For different reasons, they haven't found "the one." Maybe being on a dating show with help through social media is what they need. Featured singles include dentist Lee, whose clients are models, rappers, athletes; eyebrow stylist Joey, who wants to end his five-year single streak; and dermatologist Tabasum, who seeks a man with great bone structure, a sense of humor, and a readiness to settle down.

The Singles Project - List of UK Singles Chart number ones of the 1980s - Netflix
The UK Singles Chart is the official record chart in the United Kingdom. Until 1983, it was compiled weekly by the British Market Research Bureau (BMRB) on behalf of the British record industry with a two-week break each Christmas. The BMRB used motorcycle couriers to collect the sales figures taken up to the close of trade on Saturday. This data was compiled on Monday and given to the BBC on Tuesday to be announced on BBC Radio 1 at lunchtime and later published in Music Week. On 4 January 1983, the chart was taken over by Gallup who expanded the chart from the Top 75 to the Top 100 and began the introduction of computerised tills which automated the data collection process. The chart was based entirely on sales of physical singles from retail outlets and announced on Tuesday until October 1987, when the Top 40 was revealed each Sunday, due to the new automated process. During the 1980s there were a total of 191 singles which took the UK chart number 1 spot. In terms of number-one singles, Madonna was the most successful single act of the decade, as six of her singles reached the top spot. George Michael had significant involvement with eight number-one singles; with two number-one singles as a solo artist, four as a member of pop duo Wham!, one as a duet with Aretha Franklin and one as a member of charity supergroup Band Aid. The longest duration of a single at number one was nine weeks, achieved by Frankie Goes to Hollywood's “Two Tribes” in 1984. The best-selling single of the decade was “Do They Know It's Christmas?” by Band Aid, selling over 3.5 million copies, and passing “Mull of Kintyre” by Wings to become the best-selling single ever. “Do They Know It's Christmas?” is currently the second best-selling song after “Candle in the Wind 1997” by Elton John. The 1980s saw the introduction of the cassette single (or “cassingle”) alongside the 7-inch and 12-inch record formats and in 1987 major record labels developed a common format for the CD single. For the chart week ending 3 May 1989, chart regulations confined Kylie Minogue's song “Hand on Your Heart” to number two. Minogue would have reached number one if sales from cassette singles were included but they were sold for £1.99 – cheaper than was allowed at the time. Following the debacle the British Phonographic Industry reduced the minimum price for cassette singles to become eligible towards sales figures.

[No. 2]: The singles “Last Christmas”, “Ghostbusters” and “Fairytale of New York” peaked at number two in the UK singles chart. [No. 3]: “Blue Monday” was originally released as a 12" single in 1983, where it peaked at number 9 in the UK Singles Chart. It was re-released in 7" format in 1988 as “Blue Monday 1988” where it reached a higher peak of number 3. It has also been re-released on other occasions, most notably 1995. New Order's label, Factory Records, were not a member of the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) so they never received any sales certifications. However, “Blue Monday” sold more than one million units through combined sales total. [No. 62]: “Don't Stop Believin'” originally peaked in the UK at number 62 in 1982, but reached number 6 in 2010 following performances on X Factor.
