From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The world's best-selling single cannot be listed officially, since there is no international body to count global record sales. Historical data before the 1980s and from developing countries are also incomplete. Information is also lacking for non-English language singles.

Singles are listed in alphabetical order of the artists name, rather than singles sold. Groupings are based on different sales benchmarks. Multiple entries from the same artist are listed in chronological order:
