Billboard's Hottest Hot 100 Hits
This is the book I dreamed up on my flight home to America after living in London for 15 months. After The Billboard Book Of Number One Hits was a success, Billboard asked me to write this as the follow-up. I devised a point system to rank every song that charted on the Hot 100 (and its predecessor chart) and then ranked songs in different categories, coming up with the greatest hits by artists, songwriters, producers, labels, years and categories like girl groups, Motown, U,K. artists, etc. The book ends with a ranking of the top 5000 songs.
