Some of you may have seen in the Alternative thread:
For those of you who have been around here long enough to remember my CHR/Pop compendium from last decade, where I used R&R's "New & Active" section to figure out an approximate peak position for the 51-100 span, after Billboard's drastic changes to the Hot 100 in the early '90s, I now have done a similar thing for the Alt charts. I had to bounce back and forth between Billboard and R&R for various reasons; and then of course went Billboard-only when R&R ceased to exist in 2009. In 2015 I started keeping track of Mediabase, and since they have a Top 50, that has given me more titles than Billboard's Top 40. Anyway, if you would like a PDF copy, message me with an email address to send it to.
A fellow boarder alerted me to several big chunks of Mediabase data which had been posted here, and I have now included that, along with extrapolating extra information out of his list of songs which made the Mediabase Top 50 but not Billboard's Top 40. Finally, I grabbed some additional chart data from the ARH site from CMJ and The Hard Report issues, to add some songs from '87 and the rest of '88.
