This page lists the top songs of 2015 in the source charts. The way that the various charts are combined to reach this final list is described on the in the site generation page. A list of the hit albums of 2015 is also available.. There is also a set of monthly tables showing the various number ones on any date during 2015.

The companion site chart2000.com provides an alternative (and clearly better) set of charts of the top songs and albums of 2015. The data gathered at this site focuses on music from 2000 and before. The coverage for 2000-2009 is OK but after 2009 the number of charts included drops dramatically. The way year end summary charts are generated externally means that last year's data is not yet available, so the results here are not to be trusted.

As we get more data this list will expand to 100 entries
