***READ THIS FIRST***
A complete LIST OF THE SONGS by year is available in this link. You can also see some analysis and conclusions drawn there:
This video is intended to give a very light overview of the popular music hits, by year, in the USA, as recorded throughout history.
Very few effects of time travel are known, but one of them includes the sensation that the tracks are getting shorter and shorter as we approach our day and age.
All the pictures are intended to represent at least one of the original authors of the song WHEN it became a hit
Not always will the recording used match the described year (for obvious technological and quality reasons)
Why the U.S.A. alone? Information about its pop history is more easily available and dates further back, as well as the availability of some of the original songs’ files.
Accuracy? I cann’t guarantee 100% authenticity from the period between 1890 to 1949, but I can guarantee the authencity from that period onwards. My main source was the website musicoutfitters.
I hope you enjoy the video!
