The Essential Reference to America's Most Popular Songs and Artists from the Beginning of the Rock Era to Today From Bill Haley and His Comets and "Rock Around The Clock" to OutKast and "Hey Ya!," this unparalleled resource has been updated and expanded to include complete chart information on every artist and song to hit the Top 40 on Billboard's pop singles charts since 1955. All of the biggest-selling and most-played hits of the past 50 years are listed both by artist and by song title for quick reference. Every artist entry features biographical information on the artist or group, followed by the date for each hit, its highest position and number of weeks on the chart, and its original label name and catalog number. Lists of record holders, including the top 100 hits of the rock era, the top artists by decade, and the top 25 hits of every decade; a chronological listing of every #1 single; and hundreds of photos round out this treasure trove of Top 40 trivia. You'll learn the answers to such fascinating questions as: (answers below) A. What hip hop duo achieved the rare feat of back-to-back #1 hits? B. Which wildly popular group had 20 #1 hits, yet never spent more than 20 weeks in the Top 40? C. What brother-sister duo started its Top 40 chart career with six straight Top 3 million-sellers? D. What male vocal group had three of the biggest chart hits of all time during the 1990s? E. What popular vocal group entered the Top 40 in 1965 as The Wonder Who? F. Which former Mickey Mouse Club member hit #1 with her first two Top 40 singles? G. What male singer had Top 40 hits with such diverse duet partners as Kim Carnes, Sheena Easton, James Ingram, and Dolly Parton? H. What highly influential West Coast album band finally enjoyed a Top 10 single in 1987 after 20 years of touring? I. What future game show host hit the Top 10 in 1959 with "Deck Of Cards"? J. Which song ruled the radio airwaves for 16 weeks, yet was ineligible for the actual Top 40 chart?Whitburn, Joel is the author of 'Billboard Book of Top 40 Hits', published 2004 under ISBN 9780823074990 and ISBN 0823074994.
