On This Date: 40 Years Apart
The "Hot 100" chart dated September 5, 1970 sported new artists such as Bread, Carpenters, Anne Murray, Dawn, and War, and "Yours Love" by Joe Simon was a week away from peaking at #78. Forty years later, on the "Hot 100" chart dated September 4, 2010, the only similarity to be found is the title "Your Love" by Nicki Minaj which peaked at #14 on August 14, 2010. No artist on that chart 40 years ago is still on the charts. The hot new artists of today's charts are Mike Posner, Bruno Mars, B.O.B. and Ke$ha.
