Top 100 Songs / Top 100 Hits
Billboard Year-End Hot 30 chart for 1956. Note that from from 1950
to 1955, Billboard compiled only top 30 charts. What is now the Hot
100 existed for nearly fifteen years as numerous charts, tracking
and ranking the most popular singles the day in several areas. The
methods and policies by which this data is obtained and compiled have
changed many times throughout the chart's history. Billboard has also
changed its Hot 100 policy regarding "two-sided singles"
several times. During periods in which singles sales were strong,
the Hot 100 allowed both sides a single (A-side and B-side) to chart
together (occupying the same position), provided that both sides were
receiving significant radio airplay. Pre-Hot 100 charts listed A-and-B-sides
together. For more detailed information on how the Billboard compiled
