Fred Bronson has essentially re-written the Billboards Charts. He himself says that this is looking at the Hits from a different perspective. Apparently Billboard uses the end of November as a cut-off date for the Year End Charts because of publishing deadlines.

Fred Bronson has essentially re-written the Billboards Charts. Songs coming out at the end of the year are caught in limbo between two particular years and are unable to get enough points to become legitimate Hits. The one problem I do have with Fred's system is that songs that reached are sometimes ranked lower than songs that reached 2,3 and so on. The same.

I must admit that I had great reservations about this book the last couple of years. Fred Bronson has essentially re-written the Billboards Charts. He himself says that this is looking at the Hits from a different perspective. How true. Apparently Billboard uses the end of November as a cut-off date for the Year End Charts because of publishing deadlines. Songs coming out at the end of the year are caught in limbo between two particular years and are unable to get enough points to become legitimate Hits. Very interesting. The one problem I do have with Fred's system is that songs that reached #1 are sometimes ranked lower than songs that reached # 2,3 and so on. The same goes for all songs. This philosophy in my opinion puts Fred's methodology in question. It does give you something to think about. Anyway, I do agree with Fred on most points and I highly recommend this book. I hope the 5th edition will be out soon as this one is five years old.

Update on Instrumentals: I have noticed a few Instrumentals that are on the 5000 list but not on the Top 100 list. "Wheels" on page 548 which would come after "Soulful Strut" and "Time Is Tight" on page 580 which would come after "Don't Be Cruel" by Bill Black. "Theme Song From Song For A Summer Night" page 571 should qualify for an Instrumental because there are no spoken words just some ooo in the background, approx. 52 seconds worth. Fred doesn't consider "The Hustle" and "Fly, Robin Fly" Instrumentals. Joel Whitburn considers the last 3 songs Instrumentals. The strange thing is, Fred considers "Born Free" an Instrumental but Joel doesn't. There are quite a few words in this song. I had an email forwarded to Fred because I don't have his email address and he acknowledges it but hasn't responded yet. That was 4 months ago. Must be a busy guy.

Great book. In-depth look at some of the music that shaped America.

The Billboard reference books are always great to have!

I thought this book would the same format as "Billboard Book of Top 40 Hits," except it would extend to the top 100 hits. Having read the reviews stating that it included the top 100 hits of The Beatles, etc. I guess I just figured those features were merely extras.
I'm very disappointed.
Nothing personal
I got a new iPod and this book helped me fill it. It is a walk down memory lane to see Billboard's Top 100 from 1955 on. With the internet, you can pull up any old song instantly and relive the moment. As you work through the years, I bet you will identify 100's of songs you must have on your iPod.

Be warned, all this can become obsessive, but what a nice obsession.

Great lists of music, especially the decade. The way some of the data is compiled (by calendar year) skews a lot of the data. There should be a list of singles and artists with points total and # of weeks in top 100, top 40, top 10. that would help with the fact that you really explain the fact that not a single Beatles song made the top 50 (because they didn't live on the chart as long) while one-off's by Lee Ann Rimes placed super-high. I mean, I love "How Do I Live?" but it never even topped the charts. They should award bonus points for weeks at #1 and weeks in the top 10 maybe or something...

"Billboard's Hottest Hot 100 Hits" is one of the most outstanding compilations of music chart data ever published. The author, Fred Bronson, is nationally recognized as one of most credible authorities regarding Billboard chart data.

This book is a "must have" for radio stations and music collectors. A tremendous amount of research and work went into making this book possible. The entire "rock and roll era" is covered, all the way up to 2006. I consider this book a "collector's item" as well as a valuable music research tool.
This is not just an excellent read it is a great "reference" work. For those who have any of Joel Whitburn's tomes this is a fine complementary book. Who knew that Phil Spector's most successful song as a producer was "My Sweet Lord/Isn't It A Pity" while John Mellencamp's "Pink Houses" turned out to be only his 9th best seller.For those who are into this kind of "info"-don't take this too seriously-there are about another million similar bits in this book. I use it often.
