Billboard Hot 100 Record Breaker

The week of September 4th saw The Weeknd's Blinding Lights spend it's 90th and final week on the Hot 100. The previous record for longevity was held by the Imagine Dragons 2014 #3 hit Radioactive. While Blinding Lights didn't set any records at #1 [Only four weeks] it did set records for most weeks in the top 5 [43] and top 10 [57]

Which raises the relevant question: will The Weekend be remembered fifty-eight (58) years from now, as is "Wild Weekend" by Buffalo disc jockey Tommy Shannon?   

Wild Weekend charted for twelve (12) weeks on Billboard Top Forty in 1963.     (seems like yesterday)
