A Chart-Topping Playlist for "The Billboard Music Awards"

Posted: 05/18/2012 12:54 am

I started reading Billboard well before my Bar Mitzvah, so I always enjoy being a writer for the Billboard Music Awards -- a show that's being hosted this year by the hilarious Modern Family parental units Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen. It airs this Sunday night on ABC. The show reminds me that sometimes the public actually is right. Here then is my list of some of my favorite songs that all hit #1 on Billboard's's Hot 100 since that chart started in the late Fifties. Please add your own favorite chart-topping songs below -- and don't forget to watch the show Sunday.
