In the 50 year history of the Billboard Hot 100, 23 songs have topped the charts for 10 weeks or longer. These songs are so diverse that it would make the weirdest mix with the most counter-intuitive track listing ("Candle In The Wind" followed by "Macarena"?) and there probably are a lot of things that just piss you off about it (Two Santana songs? Two Mariah Carey songs? Thank Heavens Carrie Underwood's "Inside Your Heaven" went #1 for a week during the reign of "We Belong Together" or it would have 15 weeks at #1. Ew.). Regardless, here are the songs with the longest stay at #1:

You're right. That would be a terrible mix.

The only thing more terrible than 2 mariah and santana songs is the fact that there are 3 boys II men songs. Seriously?

Well Mariah Carey being on the list is expected because she is a chart darling and Boyz II Men were big in the 90's too (Don't you remember being able to win a chance to see them at McDonald's or something? I know I do.). Santana is the big surprise. How on Earth did he and his band pull it off? I think Clive Davis was behind it.
