Every Number One Single In 75 Minutes Via Salon.com


This is one of those wonders of the internet that I just HAD to share.  Thanks to salon.com and Roberta Solomon at www.voicegal.com for sharing.  And a BIG thanks to the unnamed person who did the editing of all this music.

Every No. 1 single — as one single track

Soundcloud mashes up every #1 pop song through the 90

Updated: Ever wonder what every single No. 1 pop song — from the beginning of time through the ’90s — would sound like mashed together? Look no further.

What might be most fascinating about this agglomeration of audio tracks is the swift and remarkable evolution from the twee sounds of pre-Elvis American music to the present; there’s rockabilly, the British invasion, Sinatra’s svelte croon, Motown. Remember Bobby Darin? Me neither, but there he is. Then the ’70s and Funky Town, punk rock, disco, stadium anthems. Listening through the whole 75 minutes could leave you nostalgic, amazed, perhaps shocked or, dare we say, gaga. It’s decades of both great jams and questionable taste. (See: Jefferson Starship.) There’s plenty of potential to sift through the track with a fine-tooth comb and make your own discoveries. In fact we encourage it!
