Bing-sponsored app streams Top 100s songs back to 1947

updated 11:00 pm EDT, Tue May 4, 2010

App driven by nuTsie

Microsoft has collaborated with nuTsie to offer a Bing-sponsored app, Top 100s by Year, for the iPhone and iPod touch. The app streams the top 100 songs for individual years, extending all the way back to the most popular hits from 1947.

The app is not based on Billboard charts or record sales, but rather a list of songs that have "stood the test of time based on their initial and lasting popularity, and on their impact on the overall scope of musical history."

Users can select which year they want to listen to, while the individual tracks are automatically shuffled and streamed via Wi-Fi, EDGE, or 3G connections.

Top 100s by Year is available as a free download directly from the App Store, although users are required to download Bing to avoid song interruption.

    When was any of the good music in the top 100? OK, so maybe a little better than Billboard, but not by much. Justin Timberlake. Case and point.

    You are so right. I mean, all that top 100 stuff means is that the music was popular. Who the h*** wants to listen to music that was popular at the time.

    It is much cooler and hipper to pretend you only listen to small and indie bands, before they 'sell out' and get popular. That's the apps people need. Music that wasn't popular dating back to all those years.
