Examining the 100 greatest commercially successful popular songs, this book divides the hit singles into 200 categories such as "songs by girl groups", "songs by British artists", "Motown songs", "songs by the Beatles" and many more relating to specific performers, composers, record labels, producers, years and decades. For each category there is a chart of the top hits along with a fact-filled analysis, historical data and photographs. Supplementary material includes the ultimate argument settler - a popularity ranking of the top 3000 singles from 1955 to 1991. Fred Bronson is the author of "The "Billboard" Book of Number One Hits".
