9780823076901: The Billboard Book of Top 40 Hits

A perennial bestseller in its newest expanded edition, this unparalleled resource provides complete, cross-referenced information for all songs and artists to make the Top 40 of Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart from 1955 through 1999. Every artist entry opens with biographical information, followed by the date for each Top 40 single hit, its highest position and number of weeks on the chart, and its original label name and catalog number. Alphabetical lists by artist and by song title are followed by an extensive "Record Holders" section that details the top 100 singles of 1955-1999, with separate charts for that period showing the top 100 artists and top singles by decade. These exhaustive lists and 300 new photos with their fact-filled expanded captions will be valued by record collectors, pop music enthusiasts, and anyone who works in the music industry.

Review:

"An essential reference that can quickly tell you everything from how many No. 1 hits Roy Orbison had (two) to the name of the group that did "I'm Too Sexy" (Right Said Fred)." - Boston Herald; "I love paging through it, looking for songs I know and songs I should know." - Keyboard"
