Billboard Hot 100 Top Songs

1958

The Hot 100 Billboard Logo

Starting in 1958, Billboard magazine has tracked the performance of music singles in the United States through the Billboard Hot 100. Taking a look through their archives of top songs is like viewing a time capsule. To better cater to this journey, I have listed all songs that topped the Billboard Hot 100 each week for the year. I have embedded a video to easily listen to them, given a link to the lyrics, included the date it topped the chart, and given a way to purchase the song. Enjoy listening to the best songs of 1958!

This was the first year Billboard magazine put out the Hot 100 chart. They began August 9th, 1958.
