    "Song Title" - Artist/Group (First week aforementioned song reached #1 --- number of weeks spent at #1)
    Week used in list as related to aforementioned song's total number of weeks at #1

    I really like this idea, DBR96! I will check this out every week. Is this from the official Billboard charts?

    Thanks DBR86! The 1984 entry brings back great memories of lying on the floor in my living room when I was 9, eating a Pudding Pop and watching the syndicated video hits show every day at 4:30 pm <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> (we had no cable, hence no MTV, until I was almost 13!)
