Top 20 on Billboard

This Billboard top 20 list is from Billboard Hot 100, a chart first compiled in August 1958. The Hot 100 is frequently used as the standard measure when ranking popular songs in the United States. If not otherwise stated, Billboard Hot 100 is also used on this website when referring to U.S. chart positions.

Before the week ending November 29, 1969, A- and B-sides of singles charted separately. But staring in 1969, both sides of a record that received significant airplay were listed together.
