Billboard Book of Number One Hits by Fred Bronson

Before MTV and VH1 . . . before books with “Stories Behind the Songs” of popular recording artists, there were Fred Bronson’s stories behind the top chart hits. Now in its 5th edition, The Billboard Book of Number 1 Hits once again provides the inside scoop behind every song since 1955 known to reach the pinnacle of the legendary and most respected record chart in the world—Billboard’s Hot 100.

Entries include vivid anecdotes from the hit-making artists, songwriters, and producers; a brief history of the song; the chart entry date and position; the number of weeks on the chart; the date the song reached number one; and much more. Fascinating and engrossing, this reference is the ultimate music source for every rock fan!

The band teacher at Pocomoke High School uses an older edition of this book as a major resource for the general music class. This semester I am student teaching with their band director. The class is centered around this book. This makes learning music history fun for the students.
