Just pre-ordered. My last one was a volume from 1999, though I did have
the digital version from 2011. So high time for a new copy!

Really appreciate the pre-order saving as I live in the UK so the saving
basically equates to the postage costs.

This looks really good.

I can't wait to see all the album-bomb "hits". LOL

Thanks for returning the news / culture time capsules (the last edition - while
terrific - seemed a little bare boned compared to previous editions)

Loving that it dates back to 1950!

I finally got around to purchasing the Top Pop Singles 1955-2018 edition just last summer. However, I'd love to not only have an even more up-to-date edition, but also do my part to help keep the late Joel Whitburn's enterprises alive. This includes continuing to support the incredible labor of love that Paul Haney has contributed to these invaluable reference books over the years. My music library simply wouldn't be the same without them!

I look forward to pre-ordering my copy very shortly!

Another Pop book? Yawn! How many ways can you keep
repurposing the same data? It's time for the other genres
to be updated.

Well, we just broke the company record for most books (pre)sold in one day, so thankfully not
everyone's yawning! We keep doing Pop, because it sells WAY better than any other genre and
therefore keeps our little company in business.

I am hoping to do an update to the Country Singles book later this year.

Oooh good that Country may get an update.

2 Questions - have you considered an update to Adult Contemporary as the
last was in 2006, so almost 20 years (appreciate that sales would be a reason
not to as if it had been selling well then it would have got done 10 years ago!)
and
If/when you ever update the R&B book, have you considered adding in the R&B
Bubbling Under charts? I'm slightly surprised that Country never got a
Bubbling chart as when they re-launched Bubbling in 1992 you can see the big
push they talk a out Bubbling Hot 100 and Bubbling R&B but nothing for
Country. Always wondered why....

I just placed my pre-order for the upcoming Joel Whitburn Top Pop Singles 1950-2023 edition, Paul! One of the most valuable features that I love about the current edition (1955-2018) is how it lists "Classic Non-Hot 100 Charting Songs" for each artist when applicable. This not only greatly helps paint a more complete picture of all popular songs in the U.S. since 1955, but has inspired me to further expand and enrich my music library accordingly. I'm wondering if this feature will once again be included in the upcoming edition? I sure hope so!

I preordered the book and am forward to it. Paul, if it's not too late, there are some errors I'd like to point out. For "Living in the U.S.A." in the 1974 section, the total weeks at #49 is shown as 11 instead of 1, so I believe that would place the ranking at #274, affecting the two songs above it. For 1971 the Henry Mancini "(Theme from) Love Story" shows ":0" seconds. "I Can See for Miles" (1967) shows a time of 3:35 in the book (I believe it should say "3:55" though it's actually a little longer). "Hold Your Head Up" is shown as 2:52, which is the promo length. I also believe Tony Macaulay's last name does not capitalize the second A.

All of the corrections have been made. Thanks for the heads-up, Jack!

I've asked Paul this very question, and I believe this is in serious consideration
in the next year or two (after the Country charts update). Is this still the case,
Paul?

I'd love to do an update to the Adult book. In fact, I actually started working on it a few years ago. The problem is that it's not a very big
seller, so it's hard to justify the expense of doing the project. That said, I'm still hopeful that it will get done someday!
