The Criteria Used For Ranking The Songs

Following is the method used in the ranking of the top 100 songs:

  1. The title’s peak position
  2. Ties at the peak position are broken in the following order:
  • Total weeks title held the #1 position
  • Total weeks charted in Top 10
  • Total weeks charted in Top 40
