The Billboard Hot 100.

Have you heard of it?

This is the music industry standard chart for singles, published weekly, that every songwriter dreams of climbing. It's what songwriters are referring to when they say their song has hit #1.

In addition to the weekly Hot 100, Billboard also publishes the Hot 100 Year-End Chart, which determines the song ranking over the entire year.

In this course we'll be analyzing the #1 ranked song for 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010.

Looking at the "best song" for each year will give you insights into how you can get your songs closer to being a hit song.

We'll be using the tools and concepts from the previous Song Science courses to analyze these songs.

This is a short and sweet course that will hopefully inspire some interesting ideas for your next song and make you a better songwriter.

I'm excited to dive right into the course, and I'll see you on the inside!
