Subject: The top 100 hits five months after your 7th and 16th birthdays

Written By: aja675 on 02/05/17 at 8:38 am

For the sake of this thread, five months after your 7th birthday would be the peak of your childhood and five months after your 16th birthday would be the peak of your adolescence.

Interesting thread. When I went to type in the date that I turned 7 years and 5 months old, I almost typed in the date 13/08/2006, but because it's American, I had to type in the month before the date, which was really strange for me. :P

13th August 2006

http://www.billboard.com/charts/hot-100/2006-08-19

13th August 2015 (not far off from being smack-bang in the middle of the 2010s. :P)

Jeez, both charts are really crappy. I don't like any of the songs on both of the charts! Also, just as a side note, I really like the features on the billboards website. On the ARIA website (Australian charts), you can't even type in a date and have a look at the charts from a certain time period. You can only look at the end of year charts. :(

Ah, the summer of 2009. Electropop was just getting off its feet and the last vestiges of the core 2000s still had some presence (complete with a Linkin Park song in the top 10 :o). I don't like everything but there's a lot to like. ;D

Eek, 2006 was a very dark year for music ;D Promiscuous is still one of the sickest party beats to this day. The rest though...

What's wrong with Creed? I actually like With Arms Wide Open (and Higher), although i'm probably the only person who does. :P

That's understandable, we all have different tastes in music. I'm not really a fan of the band itself (admittedly, I haven't listened to most of their songs)  but I do like the two songs I mentioned in my earlier post. :)

I'm around the same age as the OP so expect to see similar songs:

August 2003:

http://www.billboard.com/charts/hot-100/2003-08-16

Basically this was the tail end of the early 2000's sound


August 2012:

http://www.billboard.com/charts/hot-100/2012-08-18

Basically this was the tail end of the early 2010's sound


Damn I just realized in both cases it seems that my childhood/youth peaks at the tail end of a certain era :o

My childhood peak (August 2006) could possibly go both ways. Numerically, it is at the tail end of the Mid 2000s. However, culturally speaking, it could be described as being at the centre of core 2000s culture. My youth peak (August 2015), however, is right in the middle of Core 2010s culture.

On a related note, shouldn't the childhood/youth peak be when someone is 7 years/6 months old and 16 years/6 months old respectively?

Honestly IMO I think the peak of childhood is your entire time being age 8 and the peak of youth is your entire time being age 18. Age 16 is the peak of your teenage years but not the peak of youth. I don't think any of that has to do with this thread.

Well it does, considering the fact that this thread is asking what the Top 100 hits were five months after your 7th and 16th birthdays, which according to the member who created this thread, are the peaks of childhood and adolescence.

I find that the 11/01/2003 chart for the US is more mid-'00s leaning compared to the British chart for the same week.

It pretty much is the year R&B peaked, just look at how much of the charts it makes! I don't really know a lot of those artists besides of course Usher and Alicia Keys.

2013
https://www.billboard.com/charts/hot-100/2013-07-20
The year I started following the charts! It's alright, hate the #1 and I still don't understand why it stayed so long on the top. It's also the year where electropop's dominance died out. By far the most transitional year this decade music-wise.

Like, from a British perspective, teen pop was still around in 2003, while it was long dead in America.
