On February 23, 1959, Music Vendor magazine introduced �Beat of the Week � And Heading For the Top 100 � Popular� chart. This was 15 weeks prior to Billboard magazine introducing its �Bubbling Under� chart. Music Vendor�schart grew to 50 positions. In April of 1964, Music Vendor became Record World and this chart was retitled �Singles Coming Up.� From 1974 until Record World�s end in 1982, while Billboard�s Bubbling Under chart featured only 10 song titles, Record World�s � #101-150� chart hosted 40 more titles!

#101-150 Hit Records: 1959-1982 is the research of approximately 4,500 song titles that do not appear in our Top Pop Singles book, which features all songs that made Billboard�s �Hot 100� chart and �Bubbling Under the Hot 100� chart, nor do they appear in our Hit Records book, which features all songs that made the Music Vendor / Record World “Top 100” pop singles charts.
