Annual Best Music Hits Here !
One Hit Wonders include artists with only one song in Billboard's Music Charts, songs of note and well-known hits that did not even make the Billboard Pop Charts.
PCM Charts are based on DJ requests and online suggestions.
Some songs are listed in multiple years because some charts list the
'release date' as the official date, while others list the chart 'peak date.'
Compromising that data, we try to list songs for the year they saw the most chart action.
