*I use a web-based number generator to determine a year and chart position for songs I post. If I didn’t do that I would only post ’70s folk-rock, ’60s rock, ’50s jazz, and ’40s big band music. There are of course numerous charts to chose from, e.g., Billboard Hot 100, Country, Jazz, R&B, etc. Roll the dice.
