I’ve been meaning to try out ChatGPT for a while and today I just did it.
What I requested:
Make a list of the number 1 and number 2 songs from each year in the 1980s from the Billboard top-40 list.
Here’s what it came back with:
Here’s a list of the number 1 and number 2 songs from each year in the 1980s from the Billboard Hot 100:

These are the number 1 and number 2 songs from each year in the 1980s from the Billboard Hot 100 list.
Not bad, except for 1989, which was the year Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” debuted. I haven’t fact-checked this yet, but the other years look reasonably accurate.
