Billboard Magazine Trivia:

Harry Belafonte's 1956, Calypso, was the first album to sell one million copies.
16 weeks at # 1 on the Billboard charts is the record, held by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men for One Sweet Day (1995 - 1996)
LeAnn Rimes's How Do I Live lasted 69 weeks in Billboard's Hot 100 (1996-1997)
Michael Jackson's Bad Album had 5 number one songs, more than any other album. (1987-1988)
Akon's Smack That debuted at # 95 in October, 2006. The next week it was number seven. That jump of 88 positions was the single biggest jump in Billboard's history.
In April of 1964, The Beatles held the top 5 positions on the Billboard Charts. #1 - Can't Buy Me Love, #2 - Twist and Shout, #3 - She Loves You, #4 - I Want to Hold Your Hand, #5 - Please Please Me
Michael Jackson's Thriller (1982-1984), Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA (1984-1985) and Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 (1989-1991) were the only albums to produce seven top-ten singles.
In February 2006, High School Musical generated the most simultaneous Hot 100 entries from any album, with nine songs in the Hot 100 simultaneously, five of them in the Top 40. This was based on downloads and sales: there was no significant radio airplay for any of the songs from this Disney Channel movie.
James Brown had 99 Hot 100 Billboard entries, yet never had a number one Hot 100 hit.
Tommy James & The Shondells is the only band to have two songs covered by separate artists,go back to back as #1 hits. Tiffany, at age 16, took, "I Think We're Alone Now," which was released by TJ and the Shondells before she was born, to #1 on 11/7/87, for two weeks. Billy Idol, in his second chart run with "Mony ,Mony" live, hit #1 the week of 11/21/87.
Who has the Longest Song Titles in his repertoire?
That would probably be Meatloaf. Best Known for Paradise By The Dashboard Light, he also sang:
You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night)
