Welcome to the music home page. Here you will have access to all five of the chart surveys by going to the site map on the right. You will also have access to purchase links to buy any of your favorite hits that might be missing from your collection.

How would you like to know which record in the Rock and Roll era, the big bands, the 70s, instrumentals and country music was the best? OK. So you want to know right?  Before we start, we need to remove any bias in making these rankings. There must be a fair way in which to rank this list of the all-time top 100 songs.

The best and fairest way to rank the top songs of each era, is to make some distinctions on how to rank the songs. A record peaking at position #2 should be ranked higher than a record peaking at #3. The same would be true for a record peaking at #1 over a record peaking at #2. Next, we need a source to determine how each of the songs ranked. The source is Billboard which has been ranking all music in the United States in all formats. So, we will use the Pop Charts to compile the top 100 records of all-time for each era.

To view any of the top 100 chart lists just select the page in the site map.



The following criteria will be used to determine the rankings:
  • Peak position.
  • Total weeks record held its peak position.
  • Total weeks charted in the Top 10.
  • Total weeks charted in the Top 40.
  • Total weeks charted.
This seems fair. With this background, we are now ready to focus on the records peaking at #1. Then compiling the list of the top 100 songs for each list. So we just need to apply our criteria and rank each record from 1 to 100.
