    To celebrate the Hot 100’s inception 55 years ago, Billboard is updating its All-Time Hot 100 list, and points out: ‘This all-time chart was first compiled for the Hot 100’s 50th anniversary; in the five years that have passed, a dozen songs that charted between 2008-2013 have jumped onto the top 100.’

    For now, Maroon 5’s juggernaut, inescapable hit ‘One More Night’, and fun.’s ‘We Are Young’ chart in the 100-91 region, which provides an idea: songs like ‘Call Me Maybe’ by Carly Rae J., Gotye’s ‘Somebody…’, and Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’ could be the most recent adds to the list. Maroon 5 has a chance of appearing yet twice again, for the 5 million seller ‘Payphone’, and the 6 million hit ‘Moves Like Jagger’… do you think Adele’s ‘Rolling…’, LMFAO’s ‘Party’ or any 2012-13 song could sneak in? Something like ‘Thrift Shop’ or ‘Gangnam Style’, even the 2013 biggest hit ‘Blurred Lines’?

    I’ll be updating the list daily, for now:

    71. That’s What Friends Are For – Dionne (Warwick) & Friends (Stevie W. Gladys K. & Elton J.) (#1 for 4 weeks, 1986)

    Hi…

    Did billboard explain how they compiled this list?  Curious, since it’s obviously not about (or just about) it’s peak position on the charts.

    thanks!

    I hope What’s Love Got to Do With It — and — Dreams make this list.  Two fantastic songs by Tina Turner and Fleetwood Mac, respectively, which represented the only number-one hits of these great artists.

    As long as I Will Always Love You is top 50 & Smooth by Santana is still the biggest hit in the history of billboard, ill be happy.
