Less than 24 hours until The Pop Chart 100 kicks off. I’ve tabulated the results* from every Pop Chart this year and starting tomorrow I’ll be counting down the Top 100 songs of the year. It will be fun, and also very fast-paced.
As always, the Pop Chart appears at bsrlive.com beginning at 10:30 AM EST.
(*For those of you that are wondering, the 292 songs that appeared on the Pop Chart this year were given 40 points for each week at #1, 39 points for each week at #2, and so on all the way down to 1 point for each week at #40. Bonus points were given for the highest debut of any week (5 points) and the greatest gain of each week (3 points). In the event of a tied score, the higher ranking went to whichever song peaked at a higher position, and if they both peaked at the same position preference went to whichever song had more bonus points. If there was a tie there–which there wasn’t, actually–the higher ranking would have gone to whichever song spent more total weeks on the countdown.)
