Five Seconds Of Every #1 Pop Single

Posted by Jakub

Had to share this, here is 5 seconds of every #1 song in chart history until 1992. I had to start with Part 2 because it started with Down Under but Part 1 is here.

This is great! Although, I hate to be cynical, but I wish the songs were mixed together so it was more of a 30 minute song of songs, than a remix.

Still an amazing idea and project. It’s crazy as you can almost tell within a couple of songs when the 80s had started, haha!

Luke DuBois’ piece is much better than this, creating ambience out of an amalgam of all number one hits.

I would love to hear a version where each song got one second for each week it charted #1

how about the #1 of what used to be called “college radio” charts? maybe get some better tunes that way.
