The Top Songs of the Billboard Hot 100 Era

iWon News - `The Twist' is top song of Billboard Hot 100 era: "NEW YORK (AP) - How's this for a twist: Of all the No. 1 songs in the 50 years of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Chubby Checker's 'The Twist' ranks as the most popular single.

Elvis and the Beatles didn't even make the top five."

Hat tip to Jeff Meyerson.

Geez, can anybody make heads or tails of their methodology? A Santana record at #2? Santana??

I was a kid when the Twist hit, but I remember it was a big phenomenon, so maybe #1 isn't such a stretch.

Hope your power is still on.

What rubbish! And apart to the beat, does that mean "separately, each to the beat"?

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.
