S.Singing News Top 80

Singing News Top 80 Chart (1970 - Present)

The Singing News launched a monthly airplay chart in 1970. Initially, the chart placed an emphasis on the song, so it was possible for more than one artist to share the same position. By the end of 1971, the chart featured specific recordings, so only one artist was credited for each song going forward.

The chart was eventually expanded to include 80 songs each month.

The number one songs each month since the chart began in 1970 and the artists who recorded them are:
