For you audiophile’s out there -
Here are a couple of files of the top 40 hits from 1960 to 2001. One is in MS Excel format and the other is in tab delimited text format. They are the same data, just formatted different ways. 2001 is the last year I have.
They are sorted by “Year”, then by “Highest Rating”. Highest Rating is the highest they got on the top 40 charts that year.
I got the data from some website many years ago where each year was a different htm file. I consolidated the data into one file. I have some of the top 10 for some of the years on my fuze.
