Call it Adult Contemporary. Call it Middle of the Road. Call it Easy Listening. The hard truth is, this is the definitive work on the softer side of pop music. Joel Whitburn's new Top Adult Contemporary 1961-2001 is an artist-by-artist listing of the nearly 8,000 singles and over 1,900 artists that appeared on Billboard's Easy Listening and Hot Adult Contemporary singles charts from July 17, 1961 through December 29, 2001. Includes each song's essential chart data: peak chart position, chart debut date, total weeks charted, original label & number, total weeks at #1 or #2, and biographical information for nearly every artist. This is a massive update of the previous edition, with dozens of new artists continuing a genre of music that never goes out of style. Bigger, better and more fact-packed than ever!
