Top 10 Songs Made by Young Artists


The Top TenXW

1ABC - Jackson 5

11-year old Michael reached #5 on the Billboard chart with the album this was on, although he was part of a band that was made up of his older brothers. Pretty respectable, considering he was just a kid, and at that time, the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, the Doors, and many other luminaries of musical history were also on the charts at the same time.

Michael's solo album hit #5 on Billboard when he was just 14 years old, but the Beatles had already broken up, and Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison had all died by then.
