TOP 100 SONGS OF 1957


These are the top 100 songs of 1957 and the top 50 artists of 1957. On this page you will find two different chart types.

Official Billboard Top 100 Songs of 1957
This is Billboards official top 100 songs of 1957 also known as the Hot 100 of 1957. To identify the Billboard chart, either the artist's name or chart position will appear in RED.

Nolan Method (1957 cumulative points only)
The second Nolan Method chart is formulated using 1957 cumulative points only measured from December 1956 to November 1957 . To identify the Nolan Method 1957 chart, either the artist's name or chart position will appear in GREEN.


Nolan Method Explained

The Nolan Method was formulated by lead Top40Weekly contributor Jarrett Nolan.

Using an inverse point-based system, songs earn points for each position that they're in within the Top 40. Songs at #1 earn 40 points all the way down to 1 point at #40.

A song can earn bonus points if it debuts on the chart within the Top 40. If a song debuts between #11 and #40, the corresponding points for that position would be double with 10 points added.

Example: A song entering the chart at #38, earns 3 points. This would be doubled to 6 points plus 10 making the total score for that week 16 points.

If a song debuts within the Top 10, its entry points would be doubled with 20 points added.

Example: A song debuts on the chart at #1 earning 40 points. The points are doubled to 80 plus 20 for entering in the top 10 giving the song a 100 total for that week.

Bonus points can only be earned on a song's debut week within the 40.
