ARIA Number 1s: 1940 – 2012

I was wondering, what was the number one song in the country when I was born? I then thought, why not have a playlist of all the number ones from 1940 onwards? So I created the list using the ARIA charts and Kent Music Report. If you like this post, check out my others –
