So is pop music getting better or worse as time marches on? This quiz has lots of evidence for
against. Let the debate commence!

I love this! Now make #9 and keep going up!
Mar 7th, 2010 at 06:09 GMT
I really like this format. It's interesting to see whether the song or the artist is more recognizable. For many of the clips, I knew the song title but not the artist and vice versa.

i loved this list and quiz, but i would double-check your source because i'm not sure these are all correct. the one that stuck out the most blatantly was "hold on" by wilson phillips, which was actually the #1 song of 1990, not #10.

So much fun! Liked having to name the artist too! I got every song and artist between 1960 and 1985 (except The Manhattans "Kiss and Say Goodbye"). Then my average dropped sharply until I got to the late 2000's LOL

great quiz! did great until 2003, then spent 5 songs just staring at the screen with a glazed over look. as for rockgolfs question, i don't know if it's getting worse or i'm just getting older, but i don't like it.

@dylz: I understand your concern, but trust the source. The 1990 list you refer to is Billboard's year end list, but the problem with that list is that it covers the period Dec 1, 1989 to Nov 30, 1990. All Billboard's year-end charts are based on that period so the charts can be published for the year end.
However, Fred Bronson's list use the
Hot 100 chart run of each song, and place it in the year when the song peaked on the charts. It creates a different list, in some cases such as 1990, very different.
The two biggest advantages of Bronson's method: 1) Songs released late in the year don't get short-changed on the year-end chart. 2) Songs don't appear in two consecutive year-end charts. (C'mon, "Physical". Were you a hit 1981 or 1982? Decide already!)
This does allow me to note, however, that because HH100H only goes up to 2006, the songs for 2007-2009 are from the original Billboard year-end charts.
Mar 7th, 2010 at 17:21 GMT
ok, now i get it. i figured that bronson's book just had the year-end charts in them instead of recompiled lists. thanks for explaining! :)

I'd say music has gone through a parabolic path (up and then down).
Mar 29th, 2010 at 21:30 GMT
Great quiz! You should count all the way down to no 1 if you can!
Mar 30th, 2010 at 13:34 GMT
pure awesomeness! Thank you!
Apr 5th, 2010 at 22:25 GMT
How could it be that Hold On was the Billboard #1 song of 1990, while it's only the #10 song according to Billboard's criteria?
Apr 10th, 2010 at 00:27 GMT
@dxman: Oops. Sorry. I meant Bronson's criteria.
Apr 10th, 2010 at 18:09 GMT
The clip you gave for the 1984 song spoils part of the title.

Multiple sources list the 1966 song without the g on the end; please accept it that way.
Jan 25th, 2011 at 00:16 GMT
Awsome quiz- I love that you need to provide both the artist and the song title. And I agree with the general rabble: more quizes like this, please!
Jan 25th, 2011 at 00:19 GMT
and rockgolf, I cast my vote for getting worse. I cringed harder and harder once it hit the 80's, and had to turn the volume way down when listening to the hits of this decade.
