Up On the Roof 34

 *=Artist hit the chart with one or more EPs with multiple songs, only the EP was counted, not the individual tracks.

Notes: The 2nd go-around for this special countdown. The first to be redone. A considerable revision from the 1971 countdown. Some of it can be attributed to some acts still actively charting, however some acts rise tremendously from the last countdown, and some of these are from acts that had not charted from one countdown to the next. This is probably due to a different method of tabulating the statistics. This countdown is a collectable due to the "Beatles Medley".
