Philippines Hot 100???

Finally, the Philippines has got a brand new system for checking what’s hot and what’s not in the world of music.

Last January 2008, an unknown Multiply.com account holder established the Philippines Hot 100 bearing the URL http://billboardphilippines.multiply.com/. This chart is highly based on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 which, is the most famous and reliable music data source in the United States.

The Philippines Hot 100 tabulates radio airplays, music station requests and internet downloads around the country. The chart is being updated every Saturday.

Unlike the real Hot 100, the Philippines Hot 100 seems to be nothing but an unofficial chart made by a certain big fan of music. The URL tells it so. The creator of this chart seems to have no enough funds to buy his/her own domain. If the Philippines Hot 100 is an official chart, then it’s URL must be in the form of http://www.(site’s name).com/, or its location must be within Billboard.com.

Well anyways, whether it is official or not, it’s still good to hear that the Philippines has its own Hot 100. Way to go! :)

The Philippines Hot 100’s URL has just been moved to http://www.freewebs.com/billboardphilippines/... a much worse URL name than the previous one. Its first number one hit is “Your Guardian Angel” by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus posted last January 28, 2008. So far, the chart has had five #1s.

Some of the music-related contents on Wikipedia already show information that comes from the Philippines Hot 100. I’m pretty sure that the one who did that was the creator himself/herself. Good job!
