I’m Uncle Marty, this is The 3D RadioActivity, and on this episode we are playing songs that peaked in the #1 position on top of the rankings. Billboard is an international news magazine devoted to music and the music industry, and is one of the oldest trade publications in the world. It maintains several internationally recognized charts that track the most popular recordings in various categories on a weekly basis. The two most notable are the Hot 100, which ranks the top 100 tunes regardless of genre and their 200, the corresponding one for album sales. Their Year-End’er denotes the top song of the past 12 months as determined by the publication. Since 1946, these have existed for the top cuts in pop, R&B and country, with additional album listings for each genre debuting in 1956, 1965 and 1966, respectively. So, if the music sounds familiar, it’s because it is, based on digital sales, radio airplay, and internet streaming data; so you asked for it, so sit back, relax and enjoy, take your shoes off if you wish.
