I knew enough songs in 2005 to map out most of that year... even if I wasn't following chart music at all before sometime in November of that year. It was just in time for all the year-end retrospective stuff so.. :P

Anything before 2005 is just whatever I heard on the radio or from those around me (though I was pretty removed from pop music in 2003/2004.. but I wasn't missing out on much in those years). I can't really map out these years well enough into weekly charts. So instead, I'll just post what would've probably been my #1's during each month. Based off of what I would've been into at the time. And also based on what brings back the most memories of my childhood.... especially once I go before 2002.
