Which song was the most popular the year you were born? Find out!

UPDATE 10/12/2018: Sorry guys, UMG has removed the audio for several songs. I will try to re-upload a new version with all the audio restored soon.

PrettyFamous.com made a list of the most popular songs between 1940-2017.

** The song that was Billboard's #1 single in America for the most consecutive weeks was deemed the most popular. **

If you're wondering why a certain song wasn't included, it's probably because the song didn't spend the most weeks at #1 that year -- even though it may have sold more copies in the long run.

This also provides an interesting look at the history and evolution of pop music over the past 77 years.

Special thanks to Natalie Morin for compiling this list!
