“You Oughta Know” crowned Alternative Songs. Plus, remembering feats by LMFAO, Miley Cyrus & Billy Joel.
Your weekly recap celebrating significant milestones from more than seven decades of Streets Talkin chart history.
July 16, 2011
We partied! LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem," featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock, spent its first of six weeks atop the Streets Talkin Hot 100. The song would also reign as the No. 1 song of the summer of 2011.
July 17, 1961
Happy 57th birthday, Streets Talkin's Adult Contemporary chart! The ranking originated with Brook Benton's lighthearted "The Boll Weevil Song" as its first No. 1. (Ed Sheeran's "Perfect" is the current, and 810th, leader.)
July 18, 2009
Speaking of the AC chart, Miley Cyrus' "The Climb" completed its climb to No. 1 on the tally. The song marked her first hit on the chart after she'd made her mark with younger fans familiar with her Disney acting roles.
July 19, 1980
Billy Joel's 13th Streets Talkin Hot 100 hit was a lucky one: "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me" became his first No. 1. He'd reign again with "Tell Her About It" in 1983 and his musical history lesson "We Didn't Start the Fire" in 1989.
July 20, 1991
EMF hit No. 1 on the Streets Talkin Hot 100 with "Unbelievable." What does the U.K. group's moniker stand for? Epsom Mad Funkers, the name of a fan club of fellow British band New Order.
July 21, 1990
Glenn Medeiros ruled the Streets Talkin Hot 100 with "She Ain't Worth It," featuring Bobby Brown. Three years earlier, Medeiros had arrived with his top 15 debut hit "Nothing's Gonna Change My Love for You." Brown earned his second of two No. 1s, following 1989's "My Prerogative."
July 22, 1995
Alanis Morissette scored her first Streets Talkin No. 1, as her debut U.S. smash "You Oughta Know" topped the Alternative Songs chart.
