Anyone frequenting my blog knows that I often site the music charts, noting what kids are listening to today. Here’s a little peice of history that’s just plain fun.
Billboard’s Hot 100 list is now 50 years old, and to celebrate, they put together the All-Time Top Songs from the last 50 years (and it’s hilarious to read the comments and bantar that follows the list… a lot of people all riled up about a song THEY think should have made the list. Then one guy, obviously Billboard’s guy, straightens them out with all the facts of how long those respective songs actually made the list, etc. I think I had more fun reading the comments than the actual list!). Most of the songs have a Youtube link to the video.
Here’s the top 10 from their list…
#1 is Chubby Checker’s THE TWIST
Santana Featuring Rob Thomas
3. MACK THE KNIFE
4. HOW DO I LIVE
5. MACARENA (BAYSIDE BOYS MIX)
Los Del Rio
7. YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE
8. HEY JUDE
9. WE BELONG TOGETHER
10. UN-BREAK MY HEART
