Top whatever lists dominate the internet with just about every possible subject being ranked by someone somewhere. Music along with movies probably top the list and Billboard is getting into the act, commemorating their 50th anniversary by listing their top 100 songs of the Billboard era.
Their list, unlike many, has a basis in something other than opinion as they used their charts to determine the top songs. Also like most lists, I disagree with it completely. Here’s their top 10:
10. Un-Break My Heart (Toni Braxton)
9. We Belong Together (Mariah Carey)
8. Hey Jude (The Beatles)
7. You Light Up My Life (Debby Boone)
6. Physical (Olivia Newton-John)
5. Macarena (Los Del Rio)
4. How Do I Live (LeAnn Rimes)
3. Mack The Knife (Bobby Darin)
2. Smooth (Santana/Rob Thomas)
1. The Twist (Chubby Checker)
All I can say is that music must have been really bad at times to have Olivia Newton John and LeAnn Rimes topping the charts longer than the Beatles.
