For the years 1955-1958 Billboard published more than one weekly pop chart (Best Seller, Jockey & Jute Box). Because of the multiple charts some dates are duplicated, as certain #1 hits may have peaked on the same week on different charts. Billboard also shows "Ties" at #1 on some of these charts; therefore, the total weeks for each year may calculate out to more than 52.

T=Tie for the position on the chart
