A hit record is an audio recording, usually in the form of a single or album, that sells a large number of copies or otherwise becomes broadly popular or well-known, through airplay, club play, inclusion in a film or stage play soundtrack, causing it to have "hit" (appeared on) one of the popular chart listings. Despite the current dominance of a few record companies worldwide, for reasons of cultural, political, and linguistic differences, few songs achieve broad international airplay and sales.[citation needed] Most hits are only so in the country of their release, or at most, in countries sharing a language, like English, Portuguese, or Modern Standard Arabic, and to a lesser extent, French and Spanish. The following is a compilation of Wikipedia hit record lists from around the world. Most of the lists ignore or underreport hits from older decades, when sales of all recordings were much lower.
