There are several guarantees that can be made each year on Memorial Day Weekend: people will swarm the beach, barbecues will be held in your backyard and CBS-FM is going to provide the best music with the Top 500 Memorial Day Weekend Countdown. For your convenience, here are the times the countdown will run this weekend.
- Friday (May 24): 11AM – Midnight
- Saturday (May 25): 6AM – 7PM
- Sunday (May 26): 7AM – 8PM
- Monday (May 27): The 200 BIGGEST SONGS of the Top 500 will run from 6AM – 10PM
CBS-FM also asked for your help to pick the songs. Leading up to Memorial Day Weekend, you voted on some of the best songs from the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s as they went head-to-head. This is how it worked:
Two songs from the 1960s were randomly placed against each other, for example, “Hey Jude” by The Beatles vs. “Respect” by Aretha Franklin. Once you picked a winner, two new songs appeared and you voted again, repeating the process. Rankings were updated immediately, right in front of you. The same was be done for both the 1970s and 1980s.
Thanks for playing! Here are the results that helped to finalize the Top 500 Countdown!
*Songs are selected based on original chart history and popularity with CBS-FM listeners.
