1) Categorized and numerically ranked lists of current top selling singles, albums, or videos, e.g., pop charts, soul charts, and country charts. The higher the ranking, the more popular and successful the CD or video. In general, the rankings are based on sales and radio airplay. Trade magazines such as Billboard give new updated chart listings each week. The wider the geographical scope of the chart, the more important the ranking. Radio programming is usually primarily based on chart rankings. Also, retailers and subdistributors use the charts to determine their inventories. Further, retailers use charts as "bait" to entice consumers to purchase current hits. Obviously, the bottom line for record sales is also greatly affected by the charts and therefore they influence such things as new record production and general manufacturing decisions.

The promoman may use the charts to try to persuade a radio station to air a new cut that closely matches current top hits. Heading back up the creative line, the recording artist will use current and past chart rankings of his recordings to negotiate new contracts (or even to renegotiate existing contracts), and to procure top management and booking agents. Likewise, songwriters will use the clout of their chart busters to advance their careers. Music publishers use the charts to evaluate record producers and artists when trying to place their songs. And, performance rights societies can enhance their notoriety as the result of hits they administer. Also, higher performance licensing fees can be negotiated as a result of top chart rankings.  See Cross-links: TOP 40, TOP 100, HIT, BULLET.

2) Written musical arrangements.
