Luv' & José on 192TV's Top 2500
Between December 25th and December 31st, Dutch music television channel 192 TV broadcast the TOP 2500. This is a list of the 2500 most successful hit singles that entered the Dutch Top 40 between January 2nd, 1965 and December 31st, 1984, a period when Luv' and José Hoebee reached their peak commercially. The Top 2500 is based on the data compiled by the Stichting Nederlandse Top 40, the foundation in charge of the Dutch singles chart.
Luv' scored nine hits on the Top 2500:
Eeny Meeny Miny Moe (1979): #2355
Ann-Maria (1980): #2090
One More Little Kissy (1980): #2025
My Number One (1980): #1243
Casanova (1979): #1085
Ooh, Yes I Do (1979): #1011
Trojan Horse (1978): #479
U.O.Me (1978): #417
You're the Greatest Lover (1978): #146
José Hoebee scored two hits on the Top 2500:
So Long Marianne (with Ron Brandsteder - 1984): #2091
I Will Follow Him (1982): #866
Unlike Radio 10's Top 4000 and NPO Radio2's Top 2000, the 192TV's Top 2500 is more favourable to Luv' and José as it only focuses on the commercial success of singles. Even if the current Dutch media don't admit it and prefer to discuss gossips, Luv's records outsold their rivals' ones (Dolly Dots, Babe, Maywood, Doris D. & The Pins...).
