Portugal - Additional Information

This page contains additional information for the charts in Portugal. This information comes from the blog 'Top Disco - Vendas De Discos Em Portugal", which can be found here. Some of the information was collated in collaboration with the UKMIX forum. Additional information from the 'Viva os 80' blog and Billboard Magazine. All of this information was sent to be by Michael Da Rocha. John Boylan directed me to the Portugal chart run for ABBA Gold in 2008.
