Using the Supercut-O-Matic software, the music gurus behind WFMU's Beware of the Blog website have created MP3s featuring ten seconds of every single top 100 song ever -- from 1959 all the way to 2011.

In 1959, Billboard began releasing their annual charts of the top 100 songs of each year. Here are mp3s with 10 seconds of every single top 100 song ever. Follow the lists along with the music on this site. There are some errors here, so bear with me and do point out major imperfections in the comments. If you've been following my column in the past, all of these mp3s are improved versions, with crossfades in between tracks and smarter choices of clips.
