Turns out there are 3 music revolutions, not in terms of fashion or movements, but in terms of use of chords, harmonies, rhythms and other musical key areas (arf!)

So, guess which are the 3 years, and which is the biggest, most influential year for long-lasting Hot 100 chart change...

no cheating, and you may be surprised...!

I guess :
1. Beatles invasion (1963 or possible it was 1964 in US ?)
2. Thriller (1983)
3. Downloads included in the official chart (for UK it was 2005, so it's maybe one year after or one year before in US) and change everything.

2 out of 3 Alex, well done (1964 and 1983 were the first 2). I dont think anyone will try guessing the third as it's now become a news item on the TV and radio in the UK, annoyingly, but I'll hang on just in case anyone wants to add stuff cool.gif

Maybe start a teen pop (1998 or 1999) : Britney, Christina, BSB e.t.c.
Any another year will be a surprise for me, because I'm not very familiar with Hot 100 history.

It's about America so I guess r&b (Mary J Blige, Destiny's Child, Aaliyah, Usher etc) in the mid-90s?

all good guesses, and I think I would have gone more for a later date than the one they say - but it's 1991. They say the hip-hop beats explosion started then and has kept on going as far as the Hot 100 is concerned (up to 2010). I'd say it's changed since then myself, as The Black Eyed Peas David Guetta monster hit and the retro synth movement of acts like The Killers brought about a very late sudden love of dance beats not seen since the 80's. It's now all about dance, which has it's roots in disco, synth and 90's house. The UK dance scene didn't really take off in the US charts to the same extent, and Hip Hop/Urban didn't dominate to quite the same degree, so I'd like to see a UK chart assessment, the years would be slightly different: 1963/1981/1995 maybe.

1.) I can see The Beatles becoming a giant turning point in music. They were one of the first true "crossover artists" in the world.
2.) My thoughts on "Thriller" we're that it was so iconic it pretty much made Halloween songs mainstream.
3.) The thing is, though, hip hop has been around for even before the 90's explosion, with Run-DMC and whatnot. 1995, I would get. There were a lot of hip-hop acts jumping into the industry then (Snoop, Dre, Biggie, 2Pac, Ice Cube, etc.)

I do think that to a lesser extent, the popularization of house music to the mainstream in America really started with David Guetta and his work with The Black Eyed Peas. Sure there were songs like "Days Go By", "Better Off Alone", and "Everytime We Touch", but I believe it was "I Gotta Feeling" that sparked this revolution.
