ASCAP: Songs of the Year


Songs of the Year, 1914-2023

The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) formed in 1914. They are a membership association of more than 930,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers. In honor of their 100th birthday, they created a list of their top 100 songs as well as a list of the songs of the year from 1914 to 2013.

This page includes all of the songs on that list as well as awards for Pop Song of the Year. I can’t find an official list of the latter, but have compiled those songs to receive the award from 2005 to 2023.

FYI – ASCAP identifies the songs by the songwriters, not the performers, but I have identified the performer associated with the highest-ranked version of the song even if that version doesn’t correspond with the referenced year.
