Why doesn't Elvis (18) count again? Difference between #1 in Top 100 and Top 40 Radio #1?

then I do not understand what Bruno Mars did...
Me neither. I spent a little time googling to try and figure it out ... these Top 40 radio "charts" only seem to go back 20 years, which sort of makes any record dubious in my mind. I didn't try very hard to figure out what's going on, in the middle of some other stuff ... but uh ... yeah, don't get it either at the point. Stevie Wonder has 10. Usher has 9. Mariah Carey has 9.

Someone better at Google + with more time, let me know if you figure it out. I am assuming one deals with radio play (and is the Top 40 last 20 year one) and one deals with sales as well (Billboard Top 100, the one that is cited for virtually every #1 stat). But that's a pure guess.

hot 100 and top 40 are different. top 40 has only been around 20 years and MJ never reached number 1. hot 100 wasn't always called hot 100 back in the elvis days but those records still count. but what bruno did is just referring to top 40 which is also billboard's "pop songs" category. hot 100 is streaming, sales, radio play and top 40 is just strictly radio play. I think I'm mostlyyyy right on this but i dunno.
So fuck radio Top 40 and their records. Boooo....

Radio just playing the shit out of a song doesn't count.

Real #1 singles by Bruno Mars: 4.

maybe if we all just play elvis youtube videos over and over, we can get him back on the hot 100. it'd also be the first elvis song i willingly listen to.

hahahahaha. I <3 top 40. although you'd figure there'd be strictly pop radio charts from before 20 years ago...not sure what the deal is there.
I mean, the Hot 100 airplay is all he's one:

Thanks for the record, Clear Channel.
