Published: Friday 2nd Aug 2013 by David

In celebrating its 55th anniversary this month (August 4th) Bill Werde‘s ‘Billboard Hot 100‘ have released a tally naming their ‘Biggest Hits of All Time‘, ranking each and every cut released between 1958 and now using its performance on competitive chart.

Counting down from #100, the list you’ll see below takes several chart rules changes into account, and sees each song earn its place with the context surrounding it in place…ie, streaming data counting towards week by week sales on the chart.

In adding to this, songs that spent the most weeks at #1 on the list and afforded the greatest value, which – in some cases- may see their rankings surprise you.

    You could have post the other list instead but since Madonna is #2 only behind The Beatles….

    • Toto August 2, 2013

      f*** you and that w**** Hagdonna.

      • Suicide Blonde August 2, 2013

        I love you too.

      • stephy the lambily August 2, 2013

        Suicide, just except that Madonna is not that successful when it comes to singles. She my have number 1 hits but they dont stick around that long. Most of the time she is only number 1 for like 1-2 weeks and then her songs just fall off the charts. Madonna really has not has staying power with successful number 1 singles since the 1980s/early early 90s… Madonna has like 37 top 10 singles most of them nobody cares to knows. Most of her top 10 singles are stupid & forgettable. She just promotes like no other. But really lots of Madonna songs dont have staying power like ONE SWEET DAY, Baby Boy or other songs that have dominated the charts @ number 1 for over 10 weeks.

      • Suicide Blonde August 2, 2013

        Madonna has like 37 top 10 singles most of them nobody cares to knows. Most of her top 10 singles are stupid & forgettable.

        Don’t tempt me Stephy, there are artists who #1 songs are forgotten while still been on top, Don’t Forget About Us’ comes to mind.

        Madonna is not that successful when it comes to singles.

        She is the best selling single artist of all times only behind The Beatles and Elvis, Michael Jackson is #4, how long a song stay #1 doesn’t mean nothing.

        She just promotes like no other

        Madonna barely promotes her singles.

      • ^AKA^ August 2, 2013

        They didn’t last long on Charts because she didn’t use payola or because she didn’t discount them for $0.49 or less. Britney Spears – the same story. Their singles reached #1s thanks to strong physical sales. They’ve never had huge radio support like Mariah – and that’s her power for #1s (and there’s nothing bad about it). WBT was blocked by Pon De Replay on Digital Chart but it was #1 on Hot 100 thanks to Radio Airplay. For example, Hung Up spent 16 weeks at #1 on French Digital Chart. Chart position is not the most important thing, sales + impact are. And Frozen was #2 on Hot 100 but it is million times more memorable than Touch My Body (which was terrible and I wonder how it managed to reach #1). Madonna songs are far from forgettable *some are, but the same goes for Mariah*. And none of Mariah songs had power to top charts in 41 countries worldwide.

    • stephy the lambily August 2, 2013

      Mariah Carey & The Beatles DOMINATES THE CHARTS

  3. tits mcgee August 2, 2013

    Wow! I am shocked by no Janet or Madonna. Yet Ke$ha among other fly by nights! #interesting

    • JOHNVIDAL August 2, 2013

      This list is not too relevant even if they went by the numbers. Many of these songs didn´t made a real impact. The best list is the one with the Billboard hot 100 biggest artists: the top 10 in that list is only legends!!!

      • tits mcgee August 2, 2013

        Got it.I will check that list in a few just to see some sanity. LOL

      • tits mcgee August 2, 2013

        All-Time top artists on The Billboard Hot !00

        The Beatles
        Madonna
        Elton John
        Elvis Presley
        Stevie Wonder
        Mariah Carey
        Janet Jackson
        Michael Jackson
        Whitney Houston
        The Rolling Stones

        the top 10 from the list that really counts… thanks john

      • stephy the lambily August 2, 2013

        The Beatles, Stevie Wonder & Mariah Carey & Elton John are the best since they not only sing but produce & write all of thier songs

      • JOHNVIDAL August 3, 2013

        @tits mcgee
        You´re welcome! That top 10 is unbelievable. I wish it could be like that forever. But at the rate they are changing rules and supporting crap…. sad.

    • tits mcgee August 2, 2013

      whomever made the list deserves it for the work they have done for decades. they are all greats….

      • CHILE August 2, 2013

        no PRINCE gurlllllllll

    • tits mcgee August 2, 2013

      Lol! Don’t worry Prince is in the top 20 coming in at #16. #purplereign

  4. tits mcgee August 2, 2013

    I love that Mimi is a repeat guest on this list!

  5. Jon August 2, 2013

    Why isn’t Beyoncés “Irreplaceable” on this list?
    It was no.1 for 10 WEEKS and was the best selling song in
    the USA of 2007? . It became her second single to achieve 200 million audience impressions in 2006. She is the second singer to achieve this feat in the US, the first being Mariah Carey in 2005?

    • Suicide Blonde August 2, 2013

      There are some missing songs in the list but is okay to make happy some kids.

    • Ballsy August 2, 2013

      Because compared to others who live on the list her 10 week stint isnt that huge tbh !

      • jon August 2, 2013

        yeah but lets not pretend thats her only hit
        Bills bills Bills No.1 (1 week)
        Bootylicious No.1 (2 weeks
        Say my Name No.1 (3 weeks)
        Single ladies No.1 (4 weeks)
        Check on it No.1 (5 weeks)
        Crazy in love No.1 (8 weeks)
        Baby Boy No.1 (9 weeks)
        Irreplaceable No.1 (10 weeks)
        Independent women No.1 (11 weeks)

    • tits mcgee August 2, 2013

      I know! I know that the new streaming rules affect placement, but there is more to this… i mean the order of the songs don’t even reflect, how long the were #1. This list is just strange.

      • Suicide Blonde August 2, 2013

        Sometimes Charts don’t reflect the success of the song.

  6. . : : H 2 O : : . August 2, 2013

    I really don’t give a f*** about singles, Beyonce sold 30.5 million+ solo and group albums, and that’s what matters to me.

    • Suicide Blonde August 2, 2013

      You don’t need to add the group sales to her discography, that’s why is called SOLO ARTIST, 30 million with 4 albums is more than okay.

      • WhiteBoi August 2, 2013

        Thats cute, Mariah sold more than that with one album, music box is 32 mil +

      • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 2, 2013

        @White:

        In mariah’s days there was no internet or illegal downloads or any of that BS as it is now in 2013, Time differences needs to be taken into account when you compare sales from decades ago to sales now.

        beyonce sales are good.

      • FAF August 2, 2013

        ^but wait………. why aren’t they taken into account when we talk about R&B artists vs pop artists ?

  7. Beyawnce August 2, 2013

    I dont agree with some of the names on the list like lmfao and kesha

  8. WhiteBoi August 2, 2013

    Mariah is clearly a monster when it comes to hits, she has 18 #1s and she has spent more weeks at #1 than ANY artist EVER 79 weeks!

    Im glad my girl LeAnn has the no.1 song by a female, get it LeAnn!!

  9. Daniel Teflon August 2, 2013

    • PhuckYoTour August 2, 2013

    • VisionOfMimi August 2, 2013

      I don’t get it. John dragged them for copying from BB? I don’t believe that. This is BB’s exclusive and TGJ sourced them so why would he say that?

      • JOHNVIDAL August 3, 2013

        For the 3 of you wondering: NO, I was not talking about Billboard.

    • JOHNVIDAL August 3, 2013

      Thank U! lol yes they deleted it again. They can´t stop copying that other blog.

  18. RICHIE_RICH August 2, 2013

    Irreplaceable” entered various charts worldwide, and became the most successful single released from B’Day. The single debuted on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart on November 4, 2006 at number eighty-seven.[52] It climbed the charts rapidly because of its radio airplay, and it was Greatest Airplay Gainer certification for six consecutive weeks in early December 2006.[53][54] Three weeks after the release of “Irreplaceable”, B’Day re-entered the top ten on the US Billboard 200 chart.[2] The single reached number one on December 16, becoming Knowles’ fourth number one single as a solo artist,[55] and her second in 2006, following “Check on It” (2005). The single spent ten consecutive weeks at number one[

  19. RoyalNavi August 2, 2013

    • Suicide Blonde August 2, 2013

      You sound so arrogant sometimes, i thought you hate it, don’t forget that Rihanna didn’t make the cut in lots of music related lists, low the volume is too high my little friend.

      • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 3, 2013

        I’m Not arrogant, I’m just calming Down the depressed Souls who didn’t find their favs in there and throwing a Fit obviously.

  21. alessandro August 2, 2013

    happy that kelly rowland made it to the list

  22. QueenCeline August 2, 2013

    If this doesn’t force Beyonce to wake up and smell the coffee i don’t know what will.

    • Tyler August 2, 2013

      Are you serious??? Beyonce’s not a singles artist…so she really doesn’t need to. But even if that was the case, how can she? What more can she do? Irreplaceable was #1 for 10 WEEKS and its not even on the list. Yet and still, they have songs on there that didn’t even last 4. That’s complete b*******. So don’t even start.

    Girls, the new tea on the streets is that Kanye has been f****** a European fashion designer, whose a man.

    • Suicide Blonde August 2, 2013

      Old news honey, they f***** in Madonna’s apartment.

      • Lana Del Slay August 2, 2013

        OMG, WHAT?! Suicide better spill.

      • tits mcgee August 2, 2013

        that designer/lover is why Kanye is always in france. Tisci even alluded to the relationship on twitter not to long ago.

      • Suicide Blonde August 2, 2013

        Riccardo is a very close friend of Madonna, Kanye was crazy about him and Madonna planned the meeting since she has worked with kanye in the past…….

    • CSquadTurntUp August 2, 2013

      I want to know what Suicide Blonde thinks of this.

      Shady rumors are currently swirling on the web that Kanye West is in a “secret” gay relationship with popular fashion designer, Riccardo Tisci. Although pregnant Kim Kardashian doesn’t seem too concerned with the “ridiculous” cheating talk, Tisci did recently admit to having an “amazing” sexual experience with a well-known mystery man who “speaks, thinks, walks, and dresses” well. Some fans probably don’t think that describes Yeezy, but for several other readers, that’s most likely the first image that comes to mind… So what’s the deal? Is West ‘abandoning” the baby bump-flaunting Kim K and little KimYe to pursue a gay relationship with Tisci in Paris?

      • Suicide Blonde August 2, 2013

        I say, if they want to f***…….

    • CandyWarhol August 2, 2013

      If you girls don’t start talking….

    • FAF August 2, 2013

      b**** u late & thats not tea, thats Riccardo , ciaras best friend

  24. Rihboy August 2, 2013

    But if bey was the focus in this chart it would have been relevant right………? Just deal and move on….always trying to determine whats relevant and whats not like you some guru!

    • FAF August 2, 2013

      NO, its not relevant because they only have SOME artists who have less accomplishments than others. It makes no sense to put someone up there for 3 week #1 when ppl have 10 weeks at #1 and arent featured.. GET IT ?

  25. navyblue August 2, 2013

    • JER August 2, 2013

      Ummmm don’t make me put my BeYAWNce stan cap on. “Irreplaceable” was a motherfucking huge song. This list is a mess.

  26. stephy the lambily August 2, 2013

    Mariah Carey I Love You Boo…. The Beatles are the greatest artists of all time. They still be outselling everybody 40+ years after their breakup BEATLEMANIA

  27. JER August 2, 2013

    Some of those songs get a side eye. Many are there due to chart policies and trends at the time. For instance, “The Twist” shouldn’t be there because it has two combined chart runs which was allowed at the time, but barred later basically having two complete chart runs.

    “I Gotta Feeling,” “Party Rock Anthem,” etc, benefited from massive weeks at #1 because of the digital boom, etc.

    “The Macarena,” profited from several versions of the song being available and combined as one version

    “Candle in the Wind” was basically a charity single for Princess Diana and had to business being on the chart.

    “Foolish Games/You Were Meant For Me” was literally 2 different songs due to it being a double A-side and both songs were pushed to radio in sequence.

    Again, Billboard likes to act like it is the leveling ground for songs when it is the worst offender. Almost every song has to be looked at individually. FEW songs can stand on their own without qualifiers “Unbreak My Heart,” “We Belong Together,” etc were HUGE songs with no gimmicks. Billboard is really annoying when it does this s***. You can’t compare a song from the 50’s to a song in 2010 gurlmotherfuckingbye.

      Wait a minute Beyonce has spent 36 weeks at number one with just FIVE number one songs? That is quite remarkable, even I have to agree.

  32. Thando August 3, 2013

    Only in America. The shear obsession with comparing music is just astounding. Charts are commerce NOT music. I do not care how many people buy your song, I want to know who is buying your album. Chart are not an indicator of the quality of music (they rarely are). Look at all the Grammy Awards for Album of the year (another comparison of art), most of those albums were not successful commercially.

    It is only spectacularly stupid person who say that Rihanna is a better musician than Sade because she has more number one songs in America than Sade does.

  33. Casual August 3, 2013

    This is not a bad list, but for those of us old enough to remember when most of these songs were out, you know the list is slightly off. But remember that Soundscan changed everything, and then the internet and later streaming changed everything again. The rules changed hugely over the years, so trying to rank all of these songs was trying at best.

    I think we also have to consider that the point-spread was probably extremely narrow for most of the songs on list.

    All of these songs were smash hits, but if you think back to when these songs were out, you get a feel for which songs were truly more impactful. I remember when Physical and You Light Up My Life were popular, and trust me, they belong in the top 10 with The Twist and Hey Jude (both before my time). But any list which places Party Rock Anthem in the top 10 of all time and End of the Road and I Will Always Love You out in the hinterlands is out of whack.

  34. FactSpeaker August 4, 2013

    Its not JUST about how long a song was number one. Yes Irreplaceable was #1 for 10 weeks, but lets remember that it TUMBLED down the charts as SOON as she stopped promoting it. The week after the promo train stopped for irreplaceable it tumbled out the top ten two weeks later and was out of the top 100 a month later. Party Rock Anthem was in the top ten for THIRTY WEEKS. It smashed from here to Mongolia. EVERYONE knows that song. No one checking for Irreplaceable like that. Same with We Found Love. We Found Love was a worldwide anthem that went #1 in 30 different countries. Only America used Single Ladies. Single Ladies only when number one in America and Brazil I think. And on top of that the radio airplay wasn’t that impressive and the sales aren’t groundbreaking neither. It was just a “popular” number one by BEYONCE. If any other artist sang it, it would’ve flopped because its not a particular memorable or iconic song. But Beyonce’s video is the only iconic element of the single.
