1. “You Light Up My Life” by Debby Boone
“You Light Up My Life” was the first song in history to chart at No. 1 for 10 weeks.
The Hot 100 is widely considered the definitive all-genre singles chart in the US. In its 63-year history, over 1,000 songs have reached the coveted No. 1 spot, but far fewer have reigned long enough to hit the milestone of double-digit weeks — or, even more impressively, surpass it.
