Publisher Comments:

This entertaining book presents the U.S. and U.K. Top 20 charts side by side, month by month — showing how rock and pop developed on each side of the Atlantic. Based on the official U.S. Billboard charts and the U.K. NME/Music Week charts, this fully updated book lists the hits from January 1954 through December 2000. Each song is listed with the artist's name and nationality, record label, current and previous month's chart position, weeks on the chart, and simultaneous position on the other side of the pond. Special symbols indicate million-sellers, plus the artist's first and most recent hits. All stars and songs are indexed separately, making it easy to pinpoint any Top 20 hit. This handy reference offers instant nostalgia for those who remember the hits, and a fun history lesson for those who don't.
