Singles Released This Week (September 3 – 9)

Dear Friends,

I am testing a new blog post with pop and rock singles by release date, very similar to my weekly album list but now for charting singles. Please reply and let me know what you think!

Cheers, Dr. Rock

Here’s a running list of charting singles (and B-Sides that charted) from rock and pop music from the 50s through the 80s – the BEST music ever made!

(Note: This is a work-in-progress. We are updating the database every week, so check back frequently for updates. And tell your friends about DrRock.com!)

(Entries are: Year • Artist • Track Title • Genre • Album • B-Side)

(If a non-album single, then [Single]. If the charting track was the B-Side, then [B-Side]. Any “UK” entry designates a single different from its US counterpart).
