This interactive visualization shows the chart runs for the top ten songs of the year according to our Chartcrush ranking. Here you can see when songs charted during the year, for how long, and the strength of each song’s chart run relative to the other songs in the yearly top ten.
Hover over the legend to highlight a song in the plot area. Hover over a line in the plot area to see the song title and weekly rank.
For pre-Hot100 years, the weekly chart positions shown are derived by combining songs’ action on the separate survey-based Best-Sellers in Stores, Most Played by by Disk Jockeys and Most Played on Jukeboxes charts published each week in Billboard in the pre-Hot100 era (1940-1958). Equal weight is given to each of these three charts, so ties occur when songs’ point sums from the three charts are identical in a given week.
