Now that you know a little about Dean Martin, it is time to rank his greatest hits. We will use a system which I will share.

First, each song received a point total based on its total number of weeks it appeared on the Hot 100 Chart. 1 point for #100, so on down to 100 points at #1. The point totals are set aside for now.

Second, we had to rank the songs by their highest peak position reached on the Hot 100 Chart. #1 songs will always rank higher than a #2 song etc.

Third, we used the total number of weeks the song stayed at the peak position to break any ties if multiple songs reached the same peak position. In our case some did.

Fourth, if there are still ties, we used the total number of weeks the song stayed in the top 10.

Fifth, if there are still ties, we used the total number of weeks the song stayed in the top 40.

Sixth, if any ties remained, we used the total number of weeks the song charted on Billboard’s Charts.

Seventh, if any ties still remained, we used the point system each song achieved on the charts.

For Dean Martin, the greatest hits used were his 20 most popular songs on the Hot 100 and other Billboard charts. We had to go down to number 6 to break all ties in ranking his 20 greatest hit songs.

Using this system is fair because each song was charted by Billboard and achieved its highest position based upon airplay and sales at the time of its release.
