History at your fingertips - the Billboard Hot 100 songs for every year from 1946-2011.
No covers are included - each track is by the artist that hit the Billboard Hot 100 for that year. Re-recordings (by the original artist) or live versions are included only when that's the only version of the song available on Spotify.
The charts did not expand to 100 year end songs until 1959. The amount of songs on Billboard's year end list varies from 1946-58.
The playlist will be updated each year. If you notice any updates or find any songs that weren't on the playlist but have been added to Spotify, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
