This week I introduce the Retro 100 which I started tracking in December. It will be a year to date chart and will also show the current week’s position to the left. Below that is the current week’s chart.

There are a handful of charts that track old songs and old titles show up occasionally on other charts, especially after an artist has passed. Also my chart has become increasingly influenced by older songs because of the podcasts and blog posts as I discover  or re-discover them. Hopefully you’ll dive into some of these older songs as well.
