Billboard Hot 100 chart achievements and milestones

This list highlights significant milestones and achievements based upon Billboard magazine’s singles charts, most notably the Billboard Hot 100. This tilt spans from the emergence dated January 1, 1955 to the confront. The Billboard Hot 100 began with the emergence dated August 9, 1958, and is presently the standard music popularity chart in the United States. prior to its creation, Billboard published four singles charts : “ Best Sellers in Stores ”, “ Most Played by Jockeys ”, “ Most Played in Jukeboxes ” and “ The circus tent 100 ” ( an early version of the Hot 100 ). These charts, which ranged from 20 to 100 slots, were phased out at unlike times during 1957 and 1958. Though technically not contribution of the “ Hot 100 ” graph history, their data is included by Billboard for computational purposes, and to avoid unenlightening discrepancies ( i.e. “ Buddy Holly ‘s introduction single in the crown 40 was released posthumously ” or “ Elvis Presley has seven Hot 100 number-ones ” ). There are chart discrepancies. In a outstanding exercise of the magazine ‘s ex post facto methodology, Elvis Presley ‘s “ Do n’t Be Cruel ” / ” Hound Dog ” single is credited with an 11-week run atop the Billboard chart in 1956, because the double-sided release topped the “ Best Sellers in Stores ” and “ Most Played in Jukeboxes ” lists for that length of meter ( though the particular weeks differed ). Presley ‘s campaign lasted fair eight weeks atop the “ Most Played by Jockeys ” chart, and seven weeks in “ The top 100 ” ‘s count one slot, but artists are credited with their most favorable placements on any of the four charts. This is why Billboard and its official statistician Joel Whitburn lists 17 number one singles, for a full of 71 weeks, in 1956.

however, Billboard and Whitburn are not in complete statistical agreement. originally, each side of the aforesaid Presley individual had a distinguish flex topping the sales chart, with the titles “ flipping ” during its 11-week race. The Best Sellers in Stores chart specified that in the case of such double-sided releases, the “ ahead side ” would be listed first. But Billboard has since decertified all bilateral hit singles retroactively for computational purposes, by voiding the matching condition of whichever songs were deemed to have been the lesser sides. Because “ Hound Dog ” was the lead side during the one ‘s number-one chart prevail for a shorter period than “ Do n’t Be Cruel, ” it is thus no long counted as a separate number-one hit by Billboard magazine. Whitburn continues to rely on preexisting research. All items listed below are from the Hot 100 earned run average, unless otherwise noted ( pre-Hot 100 charts ) .

  • The record for the most separate chart runs for the same single is nine, and is held by Bing Crosby’s ” White Christmas”. Re-released annually by Decca Records, the song was still on the chart in January 1955, as well as 1955 through 1962. The song also had twelve previous runs on Billboard’s pre-rock charts, from 1942 to 1945, and 1947 to 1953. For singles first released during the rock era, the record is five separate chart runs, and is held by three other Christmas songs: David Seville and the Chipmunks’ ” The Chipmunk Song”, which charted for five consecutive years between 1958 and 1962, topping the Hot 100 during its original 1958 run; Bobby Helms’ ” Jingle Bell Rock”, which charted in 1957, 1958, and 1960 through 1962; and the Harry Simeone Chorale’s ” short Drummer Boy”, which is the only single of the rock era to reach the top forty for five consecutive years, between 1958 and 1962. Beginning in 1963, Billboard consigned these and other seasonal rereleases to a separate Christmas chart, ending their strings of appearances on the Hot 100.

  • The artist with the longest overall span of hits on Billboard’s chart is Elvis Presley, who debuted with ” Heartbreak Hotel” in February 1956; a remixed version of ” Rubberneckin ‘” charted in late 2003, more than 47 years later. For non-posthumous artists, Frankie Valli first charted as one of the Four Lovers in 1956, and had his final placement with The Four Seasons in 1995. If pre-1955 charts are considered, Nat “ King ” kale’s Billboard career extended from November 1943 until his studio-spliced “duet” with daughter Natalie in 1991 (” unforgettable”), some 48 years later. (“Best Sellers in Stores” and “Most Played in Jukeboxes” charts)
  • Elton John had at least one top forty hit every calendar year from 1970 (beginning with ” Your song”) until 1999 (with ” Written in the Stars”, a duet with LeAnn Rimes). (However, this methodology credits one late 1995 hit that extended into the January 1996 chart, and another individual whose chart run covered both 1997 and 1998.) Whether John’s streak lasted 26 or 30 consecutive years depends on which criteria are considered; either figure would be the longest in chart history.

  • Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs, Faith Hill, and Lifehouse are the only three acts to have a Billboard year-end number-one single that did not top the Billboard Hot 100 at any point during its run. In all three cases, the relevant single peaked at number two: Sam the Sham’s ” Wooly Bully” (1965), Faith Hill’s ” breathe” (2000), and Lifehouse’s ” Hanging by a here and now” (2001).
  • The Isley Brothers hold the record for being the only act to have had Top 40 hits on the Hot 100 in six consecutive decades: the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.

It went to number one in 1981.
  • The instrumental artist with the most Hot 100 hits is Herb Alpert. Thirty of his thirty-five charting singles are without vocals. He is also the only artist to reach number one with both a vocal (” This Guy ‘s In Love With You” in 1968) and an instrumental (” heighten” in 1979).
  • The number one hit with the shortest running time (1:37) is Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs’ ” stay.” The shortest charting record of the rock era was 1964’s ” little Boxes” by the Womenfolk, which was exactly one minute long, and reached number eighty-three.
