RadioHitlist provides top song countdown lists from music radio stations.
I have started with KROQ 106.7 FM in Los Angeles,
91X in San Diego and
Q101 in Chicago, but hope to add
other stations and charts in the future.
Choose your station on the left or below and then select the year of the list
you want. For each chart, the artist name, song title, and, in most cases,
the album title are provided.
You can also
search by artist
name, song title and/or album title by clicking on the search link above or on the left. For
example, use the search function to see all of the Depeche Mode
songs that charted over
the years, or to see how many songs from U2's The Joshua Tree made the lists.
About the Lists

the year and against songs from the beginning of the year, so they don't always
reflect the station's playlist that year. In fact, as you may notice,
there are a lot of songs that got significant airplay but didn't make the lists
at all, and I suspect that most of these songs suffered the end of the year
