100 greatest singles

I’ve never heard of TimDelisle, and after reviewing the list I know why.

On Facebook I follow Charlie’s attic 80’s radio station. He posts the Billboard top 100 charts from back then. There are a lot of songs and groups I forgot about.

I haven’t heard about half of these greatest songs. Although I do have to agree with him on Why from Annie Lennox…

Here you go Bears, the top 31 from 1964 on WKNR in Detroit:


1.I Want To Hold Your hand - Beatles

That’s a few years before I was born but recognize most of the songs and artists. The Beatles have 4 on the list, I think they once had the top 5 or 6 songs at the same time on the Billboard top 100.

Nationally, The Beatles had the #1 record for 20 weeks in 1964. For most of April 1964, The Beatles had the top 5 records in the US.
