Billboard's All-Time Hot 100

Postby Russ_Byth » Sun Aug 05, 2018 3:07 pm

As part of Billboard's celebration of the 60th anniversary of our Hot 100 chart this week, we're taking a deeper look at some of the biggest artists and singles in the chart's history. Here, we revisit the ranking's 100 biggest hits of all-time.

1. The Twist - 1960
Chubby Checker
The only song to rule the Billboard Hot 100 in separate release cycles (one week in 1960, two in 1962), thanks to adults catching on to the song and its namesake dance after younger audiences popularized them.

2. Smooth - 1999
Santana Feat. Rob Thomas

3. Mack the Knife - 1959
Bobby Darin

4. Uptown Funk! - 2015
Mark Ronson Feat. Bruno Mars

5. How Do I Live - 1997
Leann Rimes

6. Party Rock Anthem - 2011
LMFAO Feat. Lauren Bennett & GoonRock

7. I Gotta Feeling - 2009
The Black Eyed Peas

8. Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix) - 1996
Los Del Rio

9. Shape of You - 2017
Ed Sheeran

10. Physical - 1981
Olivia Newton-John

This may interest some, myself included:
Methodology: The Greatest of All-Time 60th Anniversary Billboard Hot 100 Songs and Artists rankings are based on weekly performance on the Hot 100 (from its inception on Aug. 4, 1958, through July 21, 2018). Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at lower spots earning the least. Due to changes in chart methodology over the years, eras are weighted differently to account for chart turnover rates during various periods. Artists are ranked based on a formula blending performance, as outlined above, of all of their Hot 100 chart entries.
