It was at first little more than a gimmick, a tool in the circulation war against NME's much older and more popular rival Melody Maker. The chart, at first a top 12, was the creation of the paper's advertising manager, Percy Dickins, who compiled it by telephoning around 20 major record stores and aggregating their sales reports. He would continue to personally oversee the compilation of the chart well into the s. The chart rapidly became one of the paper's most popular features.
After only a few weeks, it started being quoted in record company advertisements and press releases. The chart also spawned imitators - Record Mirror launched its own chart in and Melody Maker in The forerunner of today's official chart first appeared in the music trade publication Record Retailer now Music Week in as a Top 50, but was not immediately recognised as the definitive chart in the country.
Arguably, the NME chart was still the most recognised chart, and had the advantage of widespread exposure due to its use by Radio Luxembourg. Throughout the sixties, the various different charts vied for public recognition, leading to some historical anomalies — for example, The Beatles' second single "Please Please Me" was a number one on most charts, but not in Record Retailer.
To add to the confusion, the chart used by the BBC on their popular shows Pick of the Pops and Top Of The Pops was actually calculated by averaging out all the others, and so didn't agree with any of them, and was prone to tied positions. It wasn't until that a truly reliable, official chart emerged, from an alliance between the BBC and Record Retailer. For the first time a professional polling organisation, BMRB, was commissioned to oversee the chart, and a pool of record shops was used - more than twice as many as had been used for any previous chart.
The new Official Top 50 was inaugurated in the week ending 12 February In , the singles chart was extended from a Top 50 to a Top In , BMRB lost their contract to Gallup, who arranged for electronic data gathering to replace the old sales diary method of compilation. The first chart terminals appeared in record shops in As a result, in October , it was now possible for the chart, incorporating sales up to close of business on Saturday, to be announced on Sunday afternoon, rather than being delayed until Tuesday as was previously the case.
This was basically a formalisation of the previously-existing informal arrangement, and did not significantly affect compilation.
USA The earliest charts probably came in late In the 30's there were Downbeat and Metronome Charts and maybe there were others. The Billboard Charts started in , Cashbox in The Billboard charts tabulate the relative weekly popularity of songs or albums in the United States. The results are published in Billboard magazine. The two primary charts - the Hot top singles and the Top top albums factor in airplay, as well as music sales in all relevant formats.
Billboard is considered the foremost worldwide authority worldwide in music charts, and the rankings have gained a following among the general public. On January 4, , Billboard magazine published its first music hitparade. The first Music Popularity Chart was calculated in July, A variety of song charts followed, which were eventually consolidated into the Hot by mid Essentially, it's a system that registers sales when products are purchased from SoundScan-enabled stores.
Billboard also uses a system called Broadcast Data Systems, or BDS, which they own as a subsidiary, to track radio airplay. Each song has an "acoustic fingerprint" which, when played on a radio station that is contracted to use BDS, is detected.
These detections are added up every week among all radio stations to determine airplay points. Arbitron statistics are also factored in to give "weight" to airplay based on audience size and time-of-day.
All of Billboard's charts use this basic formula. What separates the charts is which stations and stores are used — each musical genre having a core audience or retail group.
Each genre's department at Billboard is headed up by a chart manager, who makes these determinations. For many years, a song had to be commercially available as a single to be considered for any of Billboard's charts. At the time, instead of using SoundScan or BDS, Billboard obtained its data from manual reports filled out by radio stations and stores.
According to the 50th Anniversary issue of Billboard, prior to the official implementation of Nielsen SoundScan tracking in November , many radio stations and retail stores removed songs from their manual reports after the associated record labels stopped promoting a particular single.
Thus songs fell quickly after peaking and had shorter chart lives. Today, all of Billboard's charts use this technology. Before September , singles were allowed to chart in the week they first went on sale based on airplay points alone. The policy was changed in September to only allow a single to debut after a full week of sales on combined sales and airplay points. This allowed several tracks to debut at number one. In December , the policy was further modified to allow tracks to chart on the basis of airplay alone without a commercial release.
This change was made to reflect the changing realities of the music business. Previous to this, several substantial radio and MTV hits had not appeared on the Billboard chart at all, because many major labels chose not to release them as standalone singles, hoping their unavailability would spur greater album sales.
Not offering a popular song to the public as a single was unheard of before the s. The genres that suffered most at the time were those that increasingly impacted pop culture, including new genres such as trip hop and grunge. Starting in , Billboard changed its methodology to allow paid digital downloads from digital music stores such as iTunes to chart with or without the help of radio airplay.
A variety of charts Originally, Billboard had separate charts for different measures of popularity, including disk jockey playings, juke box song selection, and best selling records in retail stores. There was also a composite standing chart compiled by combining those, which gradually grew to become a top , the ancestor of the current Hot chart.
The juke box chart ceased publication after the June 17, issue, the disk jockey chart, after the July 28, issue, and the best seller chart, after the October 13, issue. The July 28, issue was also the last issue in which the composite chart was called the Top ; the following week was the start of the Hot titles. Currently, Billboard publishes many different charts, with the Hot and Billboard being the most famous. In Billboard partnered with MetroLyrics to offer top 10 lyrics for each of the charts.
At year's end At the end of each year, Billboard tallies the results of all of its charts, and the results are published in a year-end issue and heard on year-end editions of its American Top 40 and American Country Countdown radio broadcasts, in addition to being announced in the press.
The year-end charts cover a period from the first week of December of the previous year to the last week of November of the respective year.
