(Book). Based on the official Top 20 charts from Billboard in the US and NME/Music Week in the UK, this entertaining book shows at a glance the monthly international status of the hits. The fully updated and revised fourth edition lists the charts since they began in January 1954 all the way through December 2000. Each song is listed with artist name and nationality, current and previous month's chart position, record label, weeks on the chart, and simultaneous position on the "other side of the pond." Special symbols indicate million-sellers, plus artists' first and most recent hits. All stars and songs are indexed separately, making it especially easy to pinpoint any Top 20 hit. Includes 200 photos, plus new pop trivia and star gossip!
