One Week Wonders

The American Top 40 Celebration Page (currently off-line) lists all the songs that only spent 1 week on AT40 from 1971 to 1995. This page compliments that work. Here you will find all the One Week Wonders on Casey's Top 40 (1989-1998) and the modern AT40 (1998-2003).

The chart data for most of these come from the Radio and Records Pop chart. However, for the period from late October 2000 to early August 2001, AT40 used an unpublished Mediabase 24/7 chart. This page combines both charts into one table. Songs that were one week wonders on only the R&R chart are bracketed by "<>", while songs that were only on AT40 are noted by a "*".

The dates below are the airdates of the shows, not the chart date for R&R. If you have any questions or concerns, please use the feedback form.
